Played another beautiful session of HU PLO8 tonight and boy was I on fire. My spidey-sense worked beautifully and my opponents’ was missing, at least mostly.

I played 10 HU matches and won 8 of them.

Favourite opponent’s hand – a flopped royal flush:

I swear as soon as the flop came down my spidey-sense told me: “He’s got the royal flush!”…but he made it cheap, so I call him down to see it. Beautiful. I won the match 😉

My favourite hand of the night – forgot to make a screenshot and/or grab the hand history…so just a wrap-up:

I hold Ac2cxx…I raise from the button…he calls…flop comes down 4c-5h-4s…bet…raise…call…turn 5c…hmmm…this is getting interesting…he leads out with a small bet and I call….river the most beautiful 3c I’ve ever seen…he leads out and I pop it….he calls…I show my club wheel of steel and scoop it and he’s crippled…I guess he had a boat or quads there…although I can’t understand why he wouldn’t jam with quads on the turn…oh well…good for me…
