Crushing some fool headsup quickly…grinding in a PLO8 headsup match for an hour…get sucked out on when the blinds are huge…then switch to bodog…get “crushed” in two headsup matches…my favourite was the exit in the second one…A9 s00ted vs A3o…I raise on the button…he calls…flop comes down A39…wheeee….money goes in…turn blank….river 3….the beeeeeyooooty…I’m outta here before I puke… 😕

…and right back on tilt…

It’s just hawesome how you can totally pwn the competition and still get kicked in the nuts again and again…I didn’t even bother to do screenshots tonight…I was too steamed up…still kept my shit together and tried everything I possibly could to bust my opponents….no joy though…one of the typical hands, which is my final hand of the night as I can’t be bothered to play a single god damn hand more…

I’m off…pictures from my vacation coming soonish….

Clouded judgement or cold deck mountain?

It’s been a while since I last posted and tbh, I didn’t play that much recently…over the last few days I tried to play a little though and it was horrible. “Bad beat” after bad beat, cooler after cooler…and I’m not making this shit up either…

Summary of a few of those lovely hands:

headsup NL HE: KK vs A7…A, next hand KK vs AA…nada; QQ vs 77….7, JJ vs 66…6; AK vs A5…A5xxx, etc etc

PL O8b: AAK2 vs A2xx…flush for him after going all-in preflop (deep stack); A2KK vs A2xx…no low he rivers a flush; etc etc

Razz: three to the wheel vs 8 low draw…capped all the way…I lose; rinse repeat; rinse repeat…

Coinflip and related bs statistics: update, pokerstars featuring a new eighteen aces deck…but not when I’m holding an ace…they’re switching it for the 0 Aces and 0 Kicker deck in that case…JJ vs Ax…A; QQ vs AK…A; JJ vs AQ…A; 66 vs A9…A; 77 vs A8…A; AK vs 77…nada, AQ vs A7…7….AK vs AJ…QTK; etc etc

60/40 bs: AJ vs KQ..K; AT vs QJ…Q; K9 vs QT…T; K8 vs Q7…7; etc etc

Other bs: AA vs KK…K; KK vs AA…nada; KK vs QQ…Q; JJ vs QQ…nada…; AA vs J9…he flops a straight; QQ vs K6…he rivers a 7 high straight; etc etc

I’m so fucking steamed up now…I guess I won’t be playing another hand this year…ridonkulous shit going on there, this isn’t about variance, this is about bs…and I won’t take it and throw away my money anymore…this is the biggest downswing I’ve ever seen and there’s shit I could have done about it (except logging off after the first cooler of a session…but what good is that?)…so fuck you PokerStars! Thanks for crapping on my christmas present. Once again: FUCK YOU! You won’t be seeing me online for the next few weeks…thanks again…for nothing.
On a brighter note: Happy holidays…and if I really stick to my promise: A happy new year! Cya on the other side…and better luck at the tables!

…then again, it probably wouldn’t have been any different if I was totally up to par. Why? I managed to run AK into the powerful T6o, all-in preflop…nice call for your whole stack sir (and he wasn’t short)…I then went ahead and ran AK into KK, QQ into AA and some other nice hands, JJ into K9, etc etc…

So Hold’em totally lost…0 for 3…at least I managed to crusher a donk at PLO8…still down for the night, but I’m too tired to continue now…off to catch some sleep…

You know you’re running g00t…

…if you get kicked in the junk over and over and over and over again. That’s pretty much what happened tonight…I won’t exclude some nice hands of mine (quad Kings, etc), but I won’t show any screenshots as I was too tilted in those moments. Tilted holding the likes of quad kings? Yeah, pretty much sucks if you hold the chiplead and push it in good to very good (e.g. AK vs AQ) and lose, yet again to a fucking three outer, the hand before you get another monster…then you get no action on your quads etc…pretty tough to keep a cool head there…

At least I’ve seen a royal flush again…three handed…nice cooler…at least I was smart enough to stay out of that hand…

NL HE to save the day

Just a little session again, not that much time for poker these days, but oh well, what are you going to do? I ran into a pretty “good” player in PLO8, he managed to hit a lucky river 5 times on me in 4 matches….4 of those were really big pots and I sat in disbelieve how he could hit again. But oh well…what can you do, nothing much. At least I managed to crush some donks in NL HE going 3-1…so slightly up for the night and I’m outta here….

Not much time for poker today, just played three PLO8 SnGs…two at the lower level and one at my usual level, yes, I was still a little freaked out about the horror session, that’s why I started a level lower. I won the first two and felt really comfortable, so I moved up. I lost that match. Pretty sick too…it was up and down up and down until he quartered me twice, once when a case card hit and once where I thought I had the lock on the low…but guess what…just because you hold 334x on a A27XX board doesn’t mean that headsup these days…sure enough he has A734…so sick…but oh well…finished the session exactly even…better than a big phat L.

In other news, I took the time today to watch a little WCOOP Event #5 final table action as three german players where on it. In the end it came down to a guy from denmark and fellow german Sebastian “luckbox” Ruthenberg (who finished third in the EPT Dortmund last year)…the whole headsup match was really sick. Luckbox had him all-in on four to five different occasions (twice with the best of it)…and the guy just wouldn’t bust…in the end the table was turned and all too fittingly it all came down to a flip…33 vs KhQh…flop 3xx with two hearts…after all it’s never easy…no heart though and luckbox takes second place after playing OVER 20h…that’s pretty sick right there…

I’m out…

In all honesty, I have never ever seen a session like the one today. NEVER. This is ridiculous. How can I have ppl all in drawing to one-six outs thrice and lose all of those pots? How can I have twenty outs+ twice and still lose to a two-outer, twice (Top two pair + good low draw + straight and flush draw; just to see my opponent hitting a two outer J/7 to make trips over my two pair with no low). Are you fucking kidding me? God damn it. I’ve never been so tilted…so I guess I better logout now before I break my laptop and uninstall PokerStars…so sick…

god damn it

Take the pic above…the dude is running “super hot” (courtesy of sharkscope) and I felt it. First I get him down to 450 as he’s chasing longshots all the time. Then I double him up on a cooler (Q-high flush vs K-high flush), then we get it in again as I draw to twenty outs…I miss twice…surprise…he’s slightly ahead…this time we get it in on the turn…he’s drawing to one deuce, three treys and two fours…so the whole six outs again (or add one six, four sevens and eights and four aces for half the pot) and yes he hit the good old one-outer quads…why can’t a god damn 9-K come up there and I scoop…so sick…I’m out before I break something…

Edit: Chasing losses is fun…ran into one of the most annoying ppl on PokerStars ever. He sits down at my HU razz table and he clearly plays in over his head. He plays the whooping amount of 3 SnGs and is taking the full time on EVERY decision. I get slightly annoyed and tell him to stop wasting ppl’s time, if he can’t handle three tables he should stick to two or one…what a moron. But guess what, he coolers me in two consecutive big pots (he’s behind till sixth street, catches the miracle on seventh, surprise surprise). After that one I almost exploded, took a little stroll and went back to the table and knocked down some donks. 2/2 in PLO8 and 3/4 in NL HE. At least I got some of the money back…but still down for the night….oh well…I’ll take it…insane how unlucky you can get in the short run…but oh well…back soon, hopefully with a better run…

WCOOP here I come…or not…

Well, well…just a little poker session again…two PLO8 matches, 1W 1L. After that I was pretty bored and saw that there were DS satellites for tomorrow’s WCOOP event #1. 8,8$ a pop with 36 players, first get’s the ticket, 2nd to 4th get 20$, 5th 13$…good deal, let’s get it on.

The first table was easy…always nice to hold a cooler early on and have someone push into the nuts. I held AA on the button…LP pops it…I repop him, he pushes…I call…he shows KK…rockets hold up. Nice. A few orbits later a really loose push-happy donks raises 5BB preflop…I look down at the s00ted K8 in the bb and decide to call…if I flop gin I have all his chips, if not I fold and lost 150 chips. Flop comes down three diamonds…gin…I lead out and he does as expected…push…insta-call…he’s drawing dead…cya….I bust another player and then my headsup opponent when my JJ holds up…

first table..won

I waited for the final table to start and once it did I made sure I chilled out until the first one busted. I still picked up a nice pot early on with a little flush over flush hand…and once the first player busted I sat pretty, second in chips. Once we were down to three-handed I made my first mistake pushing TP into an overpair (KK)…I sucked out on the river…new chipleader: me. I busted the third player and we were headsup. My opponent wins a few hands and he’s the chipleader. Grrrr….I make the next mistake by pushing K3 into K9…d00minated…3 on the flop and I’m monster-chipleader again. Ouch….that was the same player with the Kings cracked on the river. I double him up again. I’m still in the lead and when I look down at presto…I decide to pop it and call his push…presto gold and I’m the winner…

Final Result

As I can’t play in the event tomorrow I unregistered…


Uuuuuuuh W$…not good…I could use them to buyin into one of the WCOOP events I intended to play (e.g. Razz), but then again…who knows if I’ll be able to play…so no use having them sit around in my account (too bad it wasn’t T$ then I would have used them to play SnGs again)…so I look around for a place to sell the W$ and the best spot I found was the pokernews exchange…and all I can say is: praise, the transaction took under 5 minutes and I’ve got the money (89% = 191,35$) in my account.

So…all in all a wonderful session for me and a nightmare for my headsup opponent…no chance in hell is what he had…and I know that it wasn’t because of my flawless play, but because I got lucky in two big hands (76o vs KK, K3 vs K9), which means he got unlucky as hell…oh well…I’ll take it (and whine like crazy the next time shit like this happens to me) 😉

…in other news: spent another 500FPP for a black PokerStars shirt…now I can switch between my PPA, FullTilt and PokerStars shirts for my live appearances…wheeeeeee….

Just a little session tonight again…PLO8…won 5 out of 7…NL Hold’em 1 of 2…PLO 0 of 1…so overall a good session…favourite hand of the night…runner runner quads against me…loved the turn…hated the river…

runner runner quads good

…off to the bad news: I forgot that we have our first booth party of the season (my footie/soccer team parties like there is no tomorrow in the dressing rooms of our club house)…so I guess I will be hammered by the time the Rebuy Donkfest (TM) is about to start, so I might not be able to go for the three-peat after all….pause for celebration of my esteemed opponents 😉 ….oh well…maybe I’ll make it back in time to play it in drunken donkpush-tastic mode…we’ll see…
