The fish, the megafish and the suckoutfish

Well, honestly my opponents weren’t all fish, but they sure tried to hand off their money tonight. My first opponent was the suckoutfish, well, looking at his sharkscope stats he’s no fish at all but he still managed to push his money in bad 6 times. After the first three I finally came to my senses and made some screenshots. The early ones were J9 vs J8 money in on a flop of KQT…basically drawing to a chop with seven outs…9 on the turn…the other two I can’t remember exactly, but they were two dominated hands once sucking out a chop and once sucking out. Oh well…the other two matches were brilliant. The first one was against a semi-decent player who thought he had a brilliant strategy…calling down with third pair all the time and sometimes with as little as one overcard. Sure enough he hit over and over and had me down to about 800 chips. Then I welcomed him to value-city, time and time again. He didn’t really have a comeback line for the good ole “Welcome to value-city, population: you” *lol*…in the end I value-bet him to death and he was busto. In the final match I won in the first hand. He’s on the button, he min-raises to 40. Now remember we’ve got stacks of 1500….deep son. I call. Flop comes down 975…yatzee. I check. He bets pot…I raise him 2.5x pot….he reraises…I shove…he instacalls and shows? A9o…yeah…TPTK = gold. Wait, not really…turn blank…and he’s drawing dead, busto in the first hand. I like that…I’m outta here…gl at the tables everyone….

Well, what can I say, that’s not a normal statistic although my stats tend to be a little bit on the “passive side”, I won’t go so far to say that I play a “hellmuthian style”, but close to it…let them (at least try to) run me over and then it’s wham and I’ve got a monster-chiplead…

…against this opponent I really played the passive style…he was more than willing to bluff at everything and bet bet bet bet bet…as you can see with the AF of around 10…and as you can see by the chip counts I snapped off bluff after bluff…but that didn’t help me as I couldn’t dodge bullets (or horse shit in his case)…oh well…that’s how it goes sometimes…
