First Straight Flush

I've been running pretty good at SNGs the last couple days. Crap in everything else. I am really starting to hate limit poker. There is a post in the bad beat/Low Content Forum about some nasty ones I took at bet365 1/2 limit.

I was tearing up the NL tables at Absolute last week, but have done nothing at the NL tables at Pokerstars this week. Lost a set over set for most of my stack this morning.

Thankfully my SNG games have been offsetting my losses at the ring games.

I've played:
2 $15 Turbos, and placed 2nd in both
2 $10 regulars, and placed 2nd in both
2 $6 Turbos, 3rd place, 9th place
1 $6 Turbo 2 table, 11th place

For a nice profit of $72.30 and a ROI of 98%

The crazy thing is all of those 2nd place finishes, I was a little bit better than a coin flip on the last hand, and lost them all. Oh well.

Also of note, I hit my 1st straight Flush ever this morning. too bad I didn't get paid off. Man, I wish he had the [Ac]. I woulda stacked him
