I have been playing a lot of limit games lately. I think I have gotten a little tired of just NL hold em, I have played a few tourneys the last couple of days and built up huge stacks and didn't even cash. Two days in a row a built up a stack in the $10-1r1a tourney, and i mean a big stack, the second day i had 20k more then first when we still had over 150ppl left. Needless to say...i finished in 97th with 63 paying and semi bubbled(within 20) the other one. I use to play a lot of PLO and PLO8 a couple of years ago when i first got tired of NLH but i just blew through so much $$ that i switched to stud and stud8 which i feel i was pretty good at but my love for tournaments and all the sites lack of stud tourneys made me switch back to NLH. Now im playing pretty much nothing but HORSE and LimitOH8, it kinda sucks because the horse tables dont all run the same game at the same time and i cant play less then 4 at a time without being bored to death so i have actually lost quite a bit of my BR playing that stupid stupid game, after i take a beating at that i switch over to Limit OH8 and can usually win back most if not all of my money lost at horse. Believe it or not i have lost the most money at the LH rounds then in anything else( obv i sit out of razz). I just cannot seem to grasp the game at all, i never have and i more then likely never will, or its just because of hands like this.

Other then playing maybe 4 hands before this i literaly blinded down to this after almost 30 min of play and somehow this guy thought he was good on the flop.

Does anybody out there want to trade their AIM sn so i can have someone to discuss hands with because there is pretty much no one i know that plays limit. Hell i dont even care if you play limit, i just need people to discuss any hands with.

So i know that its been a really long time since i last updated this thing and thats for a couple of reasons.
1: Had a bunch of random bills that i was not expecting so had to take out all my money online.
2: I got really lazy
3: Honestly I just got tired of writing about the same boring stuff that im sure no one was even reading.

I decided that im going to change some things, First- I am going to whore myself out there and try to get up a bunch of link swaps w ppl that have high traffic blogs, I am going to update this thing AT LEAST twice a week, and when i do i will pick a couple hands from the past few days and try to go over them and hopefully i will get some readers to comment on them also ( if you read this please please leave a comment on my hands that i post even with just a simple " i like your line here" or " your a total donk").
I am going to still be grinding out sngs but i am also going to be playing a lot of cash games, mostly 6-9 tableing at the .10-.25 level. I am also going to give my usual rants and raves about dumb shit going on w me.

Finally, for those that are wondering, i didn't redeposit money online, I played a few 70fpp sats to the $10 tourney and think i won like 8 of the 15 or so i played and then won 3 Sunday million seats almost in a row and made a ft of the 7.70 plh tourney and won a 45 man sng all in a matter of a week. I did cash out most of it but left myself with a comfortable roll for 25nl.

I think my tourney game is getting alot better...FT in a small tourney

so i have been playing alot of tourneys lately and been making really deep runs but bust in the final 3 tables or so. I think i am finally starting to understand alot of situations better and have been doing really good in alot of the large field FTP tourneys. I play the daily doubles and the midnight madness almost every chance i get and each one has about 1000 players each time and that is where alot of my deep finishes have been coming but with only 1 FT when my roomate got called into work and i had to finish of one of the DD for him and ended up getting 5th i think. I count that as my own FT because he left with like 800 ppl in it still and only had 900 chips. Anyways, tonight i was playing in the only tourney that was starting on FT and it was a small $5.50 tourney with 400 ppl and i ended up getting second for like $300. I think i played really good in this tourney only sucking out 1 time and that was 3 handed and i wasnt far behind really, the big stack raised from the button and i had AJ in the SB with about 65k in front and the blinds at 2500/5000 and won a flip against 44 to get back in it. I was really happy when he knocked out the other guy because i have been working on my HU play ALOT and was really ready to see what i could do but the second hand into it i had QQ and lost an AIPF hand against AK and was out. Oh well cant complain really, this guy was running sooooo sick im surprised i didnt lose to something like 22.

Pretty disappointing day in poker

So i played the 3 rebuy on FT and was down to 10 ppl and i had a decent stack and was in 5th place but of course on FT all the bigstacks get put on the same table. I had AQs on the button and the 1st place guy limped utg but had been doing that alot so i raised to 4500 at 800/1600 with 37000 left behind, limper thinks for a while and repops to 15k even so i insta shove knowing pretty well i was probably ahead since he had been pushing the table around alot and he calls with K10s and the door card was a K to give him the lead, turn A and i take it back then obv K on the river to put me out 10th when 3 players had under 15k left. then to top it off, i was in 1st of a $10/180 sng from about 115 down to 30 when i get 1010 and raise a SS but comitting myself to the pot if he pushes and he wakes up w QQ to put me in 10th, lots of hands go by and i get wittled down to 20/25 then double through to get back to 9th. Very next hand i get KK in the sb folds around to me, i raise, get reraised then shove ..... into AA lol. and am out 19th.
I have been really happy with my play lately making alot of deep runs in tourneys but it just always seems that i lose a huge flip at the most crucial the final table bubbles. I think in the past week i have like 3 top 15 finishes w 0 FTs and 7 top 25 finishes. I cant wait for when i can actually start winning some flips deep in a tourney so i can finally get a win in a tourney that has more then 200ppl in it. When that time finally does come i am sure that i will be killing it.....

Happy birthday to me...

so yesterday was my bday and i was really surprised because my parents called me and told me that they bought me a new car. I am 20yrs old and this is my fourth car since i was 16. I know, i know spoiled..right? Yeah guess again. My first car (cost: $1200) was a 97'dodge neon and although it was in perfect condition it was a total chick car and i hated it, needless to say i wrecked it about 4 months after getting it( not at all my fault lol) so then my dad and me went to an auto auction where they lined up a bunch of old raggedy ass cars and it was just like you see on tv when they auction off farm animals. I ended up getting a 94' explorer(cost: $1250) sport which i also didnt like mainly because it didnt have AC and in gets hot as hell in texas, i ended up spending a shit load of money getting it fixed up and i had it for about a yr but when it was time to get a new inspection sticker it didnt pass because the exaust system was fucked up. Well i took it that day to get it fixed which cost me about $800 to redo the whole system and while i was there i bought all new tires since the others were pretty much down to the wires then not even a month later the headgaskets blew and i just said fuck it and my dad bought me another car. A 91' chevy blazer(cost:$900) with 230,000 miles on it and once AC, the headliner was falling off and it needed new tires, brakes, and lights. Well this time it actually didnt cost that much to fix everything because we traded the explorer to the mechanic to put on the new tires i just bought for the explorer onto the blazer, his friend fixed the headliner and they did the lights and brakes plus a tune up and gave us 5 free oil changes, so i think we ended up ahead onthat deal but still no fucking AC. Well i have had that car for only a few months now and alot of shit was going wrong with it. I mean obv it did have more then 150,000 miles on it then it should but then i came back home to Katy to see my family for my birthday and to go to a concert and when i was there my mom called me and said hey, do you want i car? i told her of course i do and she said good because w e just signed for one. I was really excited because when they said "signed" that had to have meant that they bought it from a dealer and sure enough they did. I know it still is kind of a girl car but yu have no idea how happy i am that i have a car that has AC, working gauges, more then 1 working speaker a headliner that doest let the shit from underneath it fly into my face and i dont have to worry about when its gonna break next. Oh yeah, its a 2007 ford focus zt4 or someshit like that btw.
So 4 cars in 4 years totaling about $15000- which is what most of the kids during high school payed for 1 car, actually it was more like 4/5 of what they payed

Now pokerwise, my bday sucked, i dont have time to post all my stats for my challenge but i will when i get back to San Antonio tomorrow. I got stacked again in HU cash on FT set over set for almost 2 1/2 buyins at .50/$1. But on stars i am actually killing the HU sngs finally, i watched the AaronBeen CR videos on HU sngs and it really has helped alot. I have played 43 $6.50 HU sngs over the last 3 days and i have a 73% win ratio.

this is how my past few days at HU cash have been going

I know i was behind the almost the whole way but the way the guy played it was so bad and he just got really lucky to hit his two outer.

New challenge

So i decided that i need to just work on most of basic skills and pretty much rework my game so i am starting a new challenge. I am setting aside $75 to play just 3.40 sngs, and $75 for micro tourneys. I am still going to play two favorite tourneys the $9.90 360max and the $11 6handed tourneys every night, plus cash games but mostly i am going to focus on this challenge. I will be posting my results daily and i will move up to the $6.50 turbos once i get to $200 so i will have 30 buyins and move to the $16s once i get to $480 and so on...

Dropped a huge portion of my BR

So i have been playing alot of cash games lately and have taken so many coolers its unbelievable. I remember last night i was playing 6 tables or 50nl and i had AA< K8, AA< JJ, JJ< AA all at the exact same time on my tables. I had to get a new mouse today because i had worked those stacks up to almost 4 buyins total. I have dropped down to 25nl and i am getting alittle back now and also i am playing alot of HU sngs since the main reason i think i have been breakeven in my sngs lately is because my HU game is really suffering. I am doing pretty good in them again though, i think i had a 8-0 run in them just a little while ago. Although i am only playing the $6.50s i think that i am actually getting my game back on track.
****Im finally getting my check cleared from AP and i am going to be putting money on FT and Bodog (mostly because i want to start betting on sports) and i will be playing alot of live games also.

Update and summer plans

i dont really have much to say. I realised that i would have a much bigger BR if i wasnt playing 15 tourneys a day, so i am limiting myself to 3 or 4 a day now and the rest will be sngs and cash. I have been playing alot of .50/1 HU cash on FT lately although i am defenitly no rolled for it i feel i have a pretty good edge against most of these players. I dont knwo what it is but in a sng on stars i for some reason cannot get a win when it gets to HU, i duont know why but i just cant. I think its all mental but oh well. The weird thing is, when im playing HU cash i am almost positive i am better then more then half of the ppl at the level i am playing. I transfered my roommate 50 on stars for 50 on FT so i could play the P5s open tourney ( btw i got a $75 bounty for knocking out dhubermex and a shoutout in the p5s podcast, so listen for my name in the next on, i requested him to say "he trapped me" in his best teddy KGB voice) anyways, i was around the chip lead from about 30 hands into it until almost the end of the second hr,who can guess how i lost...of course it was KK to A10, but i did get it allin after the flop of x1010 so i guess it was my fault lol. So back to the cash games, i used the other $28 to play HU and ended up leaving with exactly $100. I woke up the next morning to play somemore so i bought in for $30 on two tables and the funny thing is, i get stacked in both honestly within 20 seconds of eachother. One table i had 1010 QQ and lost a race to AK and the other table i had KK and lost to a gutshot allin after the flop.

end of bad beat stories.

I think that i might try and play alot more cash games since summer is coming up and i plan on playing in alot of live games around here, My GF is going back home for the summer so i will have alot of free time and i am actually going to see sort of what it would be like to do this for a living,( but not really)
So here is pretty much what i plan to do. I have $1750 left from the money i cashed out on AP and i will use that as my BR. I will be working about 25hrs a week at my job, making $9hr so about $725-$775 a month after taxes and that will be pleanty of money for my half of the rent and food. The rest of the time i will be playing an ungodly amount of poker, I have a game set for every day of the week, and even though they are all $1/$2 games almost every one buys in for only $100 so i have 17 buyins, throw in a couple of 10,15 and 20 Rebuy tourneys and the ocassional $50 super deepstack tourney that runs once a week i hope i have a big enough BR to be playing in the $2/$5 or $4/$8 games by the end of the summer.

I dont know if any of this makes sense or is even written to where you can follow my thought process but i promise it all made sense to me when it was coming out and i sort of just typed what i was thinking, how i was thinking it, plus its 4:00 am and im dead ass tired.

Not really much to post about

Over the past week i have been almost completely break even, and while i guess that is alot better then being down it still sucks. I was playing the $9.90 360 max tourney today and i was around 130 with 145 still in it and somehow i managed to get a top 5 stack until the final 35 which was pretty good. I dont know what happened really or why i did it ( prob because i was on the phone w my mom) but i shoved my sb w 83o after it folded around to me, the blinds were 400/800 and i had 23k the bb had 15k and and made a very loose call on the bubble f the tourney with A5 and when i hit my 3 i jumped but obv the A hit the river, lol. Well i worked my way back up to a 12th place stack and again made a kinda stupid play, i had AJ and made a 4x raise, flop came out 7 high and i check raised the tightest layer at the table, he came over the top and i had to fold and lost about half my stack. Finally i just shoved Q10s from mid pos when blinds were 600/1200 and i had like 15k.Oh well, i finished in 27th place and actually was happy because i have been on a HUGE tourney downswing.
- the other day i was playing in a $10 180man sng and i was doing really good, i doubled up on like the 5th hand. Anyways i flopped two pair w AJ on a rainbow flop, bet half the pot and got a call, turn was a spade, bet 3/4 pot got a call, and river was another spade, Still thinking im good i shoved all in and the guy had 78 spades for the running flush. Well i was down to 100 chips with the blinds at 25/50 and came back to get 8th place which still sucked because i was in 1st with 17 left but oh well, at least i made it that far from 2bbs.

Realization about my game and how its hurting me

The last few days i have realized a few things about my game that need to stop.
Mostly I am to aggressive:
1.from the blinds when i think there is a steal in late position.
-one of my favorite things to do is pick off a steal attempt, and i would say honestly it pays off about 75% of the time if not more, especially if its late in a tourney but when it doesn't work, i go up in flames.
2.from late position no matter what my stack size is compared to the blinds.
- i can have about 15+bbs and even though that is not when i should be push fold i still get like that from late position in tourneys which has resulted in a ton of crash and burns
3. SBvBB
- i HATE sb limpers when its folded around so i will always bet out on them and alot of times it works too but when i get repoped i think that they are just tired of me doing it and are playing back( see post two days ago A3vsAA SBvBB) so i will just shove an insane amount of chips in.
4. against what i feel is a re steal when i try to steal from any position.
- Another one of my favorite things to do is re raise after i have been raised when i am trying to just pick up blinds.

Also i have realized that i might play to big of pots when i should really keep them smaller and not try to stay X amount ahead of avg in tourneys.

Another big thing is trying tourney strategies in a cash game because they WILL NOT WORK!!!!!!!!!

I am on a huge downswing because of these things, i mean like 50% of my br downswing.
I really love being aggro but i think i am taking it a little two far, i mean in the beginning of tourneys when the blinds are insignificant i have no problem checking it down SBvBB or letting go of my hand when i am only 90% sure i have the best hand when i am facing a decision for all of my chips and i don't even have that many in the pot to begin with, because i know i can find a spot where i am 100% sure. I just don't know what happens to me but right after i make a play, before my opponent even acts i know that i did something stupid and that it is going to cost me a lot of money.

Sunday, April 15, 2007


this is kinda rediculous. I have played a little more then half of the games i did on Absolute and i havent even made 1/10th of what i did before i came back to Pokerstars. My placement finish is sooooooo bad, 22% 3rds and 10% 1sts, thats absolutely horrible. I think(hope) what it might be is that the sngs on AP are alot better for me because they are like a mix of the regular and turbo sngs on stars. The levels are changed every 10 hands instead of every 5 or 15 mins like stars. This means that when we are at a full table it is like a regular sngs where i can still play tight but see flops with a few more speculative hands and then when it gets short handed, which is my favorite part of sngs, it turns into a turbo because you get through 10 hands so much faster and there are not many AP regulars that really know how to adjust to it. Who knows maybe i just went on the "new account heater" lol and i really am just a breakeven player.

Internet problems, a FT and a blow with HH

when i first got up this morning i registered in two $29 sats to the sunday warmut and some tourneys. I am about 15 min into both of the sats and a good way into the tourney and all of a sudden my internet connection drops. Im freaking out because this has happened alot lately but never when i am playing turbo sngs. Anyways i call the company and after waiting for a good while i talk to the guy and he is useless. Finally after being on the phone with him for more then 45 min i finally reconnect.

The sngs sats i came back just in time to see me finish in 3rd in one of spot out of the money and the second one i am in the bb with KK and have 390 chips left, the second place stack moves in and obv i call, well the big stack calls also and hits a straight and of course the other guy hits trips so i bust 3rd again and get no money. Incredibly though i was in the $16.50 360 max tourney and came back to having 875 chips with blinds at 75/150 and being in 271 out of 278 to getting to the FT only to bust in 7th place to a huge lucksack... of course my A8 doesnt beat his KK lol, so rigged. Also i was playing the 15k $11 tourney and i really like the new 3k staring stack, i wasnt even paying attention really to my stack size in comparison to the field until my roommate told me i was in 9th out of 125 which was really good for my confidence. Low and behold i completetly donk of my chips in 1 hand and drop to 116/123. here is how the hand played out.

Im not sure about the final call though, i was getting insane odds and if i won the hand i was in 1st place. I didnt figure him for a big A or even a PP because he was raising those every time and i thought that his reraise was a resteal.

i cut out all the antes and usless shit from the bottom

Last few days...

At times when im playing it feels like i am in total "domination" mode but also sometimes its just " i get hit by every two outer and lose every race" mode. Its really fun. lol. I have played in 17 tournaments the last few days and for the exception of the $3.30 triple shootout i haven't cashed in a single one. The TSO was really annoying, i love this tourney as it is one of the easiest ways to make money in a micro limit event. My only problem is that i always screw up at the FT and have never won it, I have had about 5 FT with nothing better then a 4th place finish and 1 3rd place. To bad they were all on my other accounts that have since been closed by support because this account is sooo rigged, lol. I have lost HU in the second round the last 3 times i played it. This time it was pretty sick though, the guy have me out chipped about 3-1 and the blinds were still at 50/100 and i came back to have him by 2-1 then i lost a flip AJ<10J sooooted, then i get coolered so bad I flop K high flush and he obv has the A high.
I think i played about 16 sngs yesterday and so far today and i made about $175 which isn't near what i would like it to be at but i took a shot at 7 tabling them on my laptop so the screens were really small so im hoping that had something to do with it.
As far a FPP go i have gotten them alot faster then i was thinking i was going to be getting them and actually got a little more then 3 days worth in just under 1 day so maybe it wont be as hard as i thought.
My sng game is readjusting back to the non turbos better then i thought, I don't have the roll to play the $27 turbos so I have to stick w the $22 until then but if things keep turning out the way they have been and my ROI is significantly better then the non turbos then i might just wait until I'm rolled for the $33 regulars. I just wish that stars sngs were done by hands like on Absolute instead of minutes played. I loved the fact that it was regular poker in the beginning but push/fold after it was about 4-5 handed, so many people couldn't adjust to it in time at the $22 level even if they are AP regulars.

a little of every thing

so i have been playing alot lately, almost all $4.40/180 for the TLB contest. My two teammates are pretty much carrying my sorry ass. I thought it was going to be the other way around at first because after playing in 7 of them i had 3 ft and 1 14th place while my roommate hadnt cashed in any and the other guy hadnt even played. Well my roommate was leading us in points yesterday but last night the other teammate(dagg111) went on a sick ass run and had like 4 ft and a cash putting us in 3rd place in the contest. I stopped posting the updates on how i was doing because i realized i was going to kill myself if i was looking back at my stats and saw that i was on a 0-18 run in the things.
I have been determined to win a seat to the sunday million since i got money on stars and have failed miserably. I have tried every satellite they have from the $2.20 triple shootout to the $29 sng. After spending about $190 on them i finally won one and am offically not in the red for sats anymore.
I have never tried to make any of the VIP "stars" on pokerstars but i think this month i am actually going to try for it, I have 362FPP this month and need to get to 1500 total my the 30th. So i will need to get about 50 FPP a day so i will have to play either 5 $22 sngs a day or 10 $16 sngs a day for the rest of this month, give or take a couple because i will be playing the $4.40 still which give me 2FPP for every one i play.
Finally, yesterday was my GF 19th birthday so...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY.....even though you never read this

Anytime i get to a ft i usually get there in the middle of the pack, like 5th- 9th, i always work up my stack and then lose to something like this. I dont mind losing to the 77 here obv but the guy w A3 for a 17k stack which still would have put me in 8th place is what bugged me. oh well... another missed opportunity

funny thing is, the guy who had 77- when the blinds were at 800/1200 he pushed on my bb for 2k more and i was gonna call w my A8 but i thought the big stack who was to my right had raised all in because the chips were piled sooooo high when he called that i folded and would have busted him way before the FT

2 FTs, a cashout and Stars

so last night i played in the Absolute $7k guaranteed tourney and i got 7 place for @ $250 and this morning i got 4 place in the pokerstars $11 tourney for $497, of course i took a bad beat in that one when we were 4 handed but oh well. I FINALLY HAVE A BR ON STARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got a plyer from Absolute to trade me $100 for stars and after 4 DS to the sunday million and a few sngs i was down to $35. Also i cashed out 2k from Absolute so i am going to have to be carefull on there now because i am not going to move down levels and only have about 20 buyins left, never mind i forgot i cashed in that tourney and didnt feel like deleting that. I might try to satty in to the 150k and the 60k this weekend but i dont know, my main goal is just to work up my stars roll by playing all of the really +ev sats on there and keeping the T$

my SN on stars is dezznutzzz fyi

Wednesday, March 28, 2007


So i was playing the $50/$7500 guaranteed today and i was in first place by about 9k with blinds at 1k/2k and 15ppl left and all of a sudden Absolute crashes. After about an hr of waiting around and sending them an email i decide that maybe they will just do a chip equity chop or something of that sort......well come to find out when i get back home that about 1 1/2 hrs after it crashed they decided to continue running the tourney, and i finished 8th for $245. This is such bullshit, i found a guy who was playing in it w/ me and he had finished second and said that 8 ppl blinded out. I sent them an email basically saying that if they didnt compensate me in someway then i was going to have to take all of my money off of their site and that i was going to post on every online poker forum what had happened and how they took care of it.

So i was in 5 sngs earlier and by some freak of nature was running extremely hot. I was destroying the bubble in 2, i mean like 4500 cl in both, two i was in first place with 5 left in one and 6 left in the other and the last one just started.
All of a sudden my internet connection drops, im used to it dropping for a few seconds because i have wireless but this time it dropped for good. I got on my roommates computer because all of the lights were solid green on the modem so i thought it was just my computer messing up but his didn't work either. So i called the internet company and finally got a hold of them ( which was a surprise because it was 3:30am) and they said that in my area there are actually ppl doing maintenance so they were having "downtime". Needless to say, i blinded out of all my sngs.

Break even streak

So over the past 55 or so sngs i have been pretty much break even. Of those 55 the first 35 i was completely even and with the last 20 i am up $82. I know that is not many at all but it just sucks seeing my BR go up and then right back to where it started at


Friday, March 23, 2007

this is one of the few things that i have ever actually roflol at. I say that i am going to do this to my GF all the time

I love you baby, but one day....

Wednesday, March 21, 2007


I am really trying to get some money on Pokerstars or Full Tilt and was wondering if anyone would be willing to do a transfer w me, not for to much just like 500 or 1k. If your interested let me know i will give you $525 for $500 somewhere else or $1050 for $1000 somewhere else just because i know it is a pain in the ass.

Wednesday, March 14, 2007


I have been playing alot of sngs lately because i have just been getting killed in tourneysand cash games. I think i have found my sweetspot too, after dropping a couple hundred i dropped down to the $22 sngs. Not because thats what my BR limits are but rather because i was up to about $3500 and in less then 5 days i was almost down to $2700 and i just couldnt handle losing $1000 in that short of time. I have been playing realy good lately and am almost back up to $3k. I am going to go fishing w my girlfriend and my family for a couple of days so i wont post until maybe Monday.

been playing ok i guess

so i just got done playing some sngs. I did pretty good in them overall i think but still not enough first place finishes. Also i have been trying to play more cash games but i remembered why i dont play them online anymore. I decided to start a session and 4 table .50/1 and the very first table i got to i waited for the bb and when it got to me i got dealt AA. Well i raised it to 4 and got only the button to call, flop came out As3h9d i bet out 5 and got reraised to 17 so i re-reraised to 39 and got a call. The turn was a Js and i wanted to just take down the pot right there so i pushed the rest of my stack in which was $57 and got instacalled by 5s4s and the river was of course a 2 giving him the straight.LOL.
Also in tourneys i have been playing alot better and making it alot deeper consistanly its just to bad that its still never in the money because of the tourney size it only pays a few. I think that i have about 10 finishes in 25-19 place when the tourney pays only 18 spots, and when i do cash i end up making a stupid play and bust in the first money level. Ill post some pics of my stats later.

First major FT

so i dont know if it can really be considered a major...but it is for me!!!
I final tabled the 60k guaranteed today on Absolute. I was CL with about 20 to go and then battled it out for the CL when it was down to the final 13-18 but lost a huge coin flip on the FT bubble AK<1010 which if i had won i would have had double second place chips but oh well. I went into the FT in 8th place and after some push fold poker that where i ended up busting. I got $1704 which isnt to bad since i satellited in for $40, well actually i played in two sats. to it. One was a $20 freezeout and the other was a $40 sng. I got in on the sng but lost the tourney so i was in for $60 but won a last longer bet with a player Pokerskibum for $25 so i was really in for $35.

Finally broke the curse lol

So i finally think my bad run of sngs is over. I played 5 today and had 2 wins 2 seconds and 1 third. That's the most in a row that i have cashed in since my bubble streak began.I am not on my computer now but i will post more pics of my stats later
