How to screw up an evening…
It’s quite easy. Enter 8 turbo 6max SnGs. Play like a madman in all of them. Then watch your dsl-line go down. Sit there in agony for 20 minutes. Come back finding yourself out in 3rd or 4th in 7 of 8 matches. Win #8. Be stuck and pissed off. Well done Arcor (my dsl provider)…cocksuckers!
Success…online and live

Yeah, today was a good day, so don’t let yourself be fooled by the first couple of screenshots below…they’re from the last few weeks…the later ones are from today. After buying the MicroStakes Edition of PokerTracker 3 (see my earlier post) I jumped into a 5 table SnG and owned it, finishing with a W and a smile on my face. After that I broke even in a few headsup matches and took my lazy ass to the couch to relax a little as there was another installment of the home game tonight.
I arrived at the home game and we sat down 9 handed playing our regular tourney (more than 6 players, so the money is split three ways, 50/30/20% of the price pool). I owned that too, coming back from being really short (5BB) to win it. After that we decided to play another one, 6 players including myself saddled up for a winner takes it all SnG. I was among the chipleaders most of the way, but once we got even shorter, 4 and then 3 players, I just couldn’t get a hand to hold up anymore. The really decisive hand was me in LP against the BB (?). Limped pot and we see a flop of 9Tx…I hold J7. Opponent bets out around 3BB. I decide to peel off a card and we see the turn. 8. Yatzee. My opponent goes all-in instantly and I snap-call showing the nuts. He’s really disappointed and his only hope is a J as he’s holding Q9. Dealer burns and turns….a J….three outs = 100%…yikes. Too bad. A few hands later I tangle with the same player again. I open-shove for 12BB and he calls. I show down AcQh, he shows KJ. 60/40…I’ll take it, if my hand holds up I’m back in contention. No such joy though as the dealer flops a King, turns a Jack and doesn’t peel off a ten on the river for me…so I bow out in 3rd place with 0. Oh well, at least he went on to win it, and btw he really deserved to win something…he’s been running like hell in the last few home-games…so ‘s all good. Enjoy the random pic dump and I’m outta here…
Not a lot of action…
Well, I’ve been playing a little bit here and there, but no major sessions either way. Today I’m going into poker mode though, I plan on playing a little online today and tonight is another installment of the home game, yay. For the first part I decided to upgrade my arsenal of poker software. After buying Tourney Manger a while back, I decided to get me my license for PokerTracker 3…and because I’m a low limit grinder and I’m cheap like that I got the MicroStakes edition which is reasonably priced a 44.99$.
Let’s see how it goes…I’ll keep you posted…
Well, I’ve been running mightly good again…NOT. No matter what I do, how far ahead I am or how many outs I have when currently behind. Doesn’t matter, doesn’t hold, can’t hit. Fucking a++, Riverstars has it in for me once again. I have a ton of screenshots spread over three compis, but honestly I’m too lazy to grab all of them and put them up here, so I leave you with a lovely screenshot, of course he first turns a fucking boats then rivers the even bigger boat once I river a straight…why shouldn’t he…donkfish that he is dodging 30outs twice then coming right back at you with a fucking brilliant cooler river…fucking triple a ++
I’m outta here…
