I've got a Mega-Post here, because I played some Mega-Poker Last night. I played in a bunch of tournies, and played about 900 hands of 200NL.

Here are the tournie reports. I also played in the Mookie, but went out after the first break. I 3-bet from the blinds and then pushed (which was pot sized) the Q94 flop. I got called by TT. I guess he put me on AK (I had A9). No respect for the PokerFool. I'm ok with my play, as I think AA-QQ and AK push PF, and I can find an easy fold.

Full Tilt's 28K guarantee:

  • I double up with AA vs 99. I 3-bet from the SB with my aces, and he pushed.
  • 1 limper, and I raise QQ up to 400 (50/100 level). The big stack on the button, plus the limper call. FLop is 863 rainbow. Button calls my bet. Turn is another 8. I push and button calls with 76o and I double up. Thanks you sir! I now have a really nice stack.
  • I lose a decent sized pot to the same idiot above with Top Pair/3rd Kicker (KJ) to his Top Pair/Top Kicker (AK). He didn't RR PF, so I had trouble putting him on AK. Bad play by me anyways.
  • I short stack beats my KK with AJ.
  • I win a decent pot with AK on an Ace high flop
  • 1 limper, then the SB completes, and I have AK in the BB. I raise, and the limper pushes. Huh? I call and he has KQ and my hand holds!! WOW!
  • Blinds 200/400, and I try to steal with A2s. Someone with 1/3 of my stack size pushes, and I have to call because I have odds. He has TT and I lose.
  • I win a nice size pot with KK vs QQ.
  • 400/800/100 level, and I have 15,000 in chips. I get it all-in with someone who has 10,000 in chips with KK vs their AQ. An Ace obviously flops, and I lose.
  • I'm now short with an M of 2, and push my JTs and get called by AJ and lose
I cashed, but it wasn't much of a profit. Maybe $30?

Full Tilt's $10 rebuy:

  • I played kinda of crazy in this one, pushing a lot of crap. And finally, after a couple rebuy's, it started to pay off. I ended the rebuy period with a massive stack, and was in the top 3 in chips. The big hand was me having two pair plus the 2nd nut flush draw getting called by bottom pair. That was an 18,000 pot at the 25/50 level.
  • About half an hour into the "regular" poker, I lost a huge hand to a donkey when his two pair were higher than my two pair. Then I doubled up off of him two hands later with KQ vs JJ.
  • Then the hand of the tournie. I knock out three players in one hand. I'm just gonna post the HH.

Some other idiot at the table berated me afterwards for a nice suckout. Not sure what he meant, because I was 33% to win that, with QQ only winning 47% of the time. I don't think that qualifies as a suckout. What else am I going to do with AKs there?

  • I was having fun with this idiot, saying things like "I was at least a 70% to win that hand" and "I had 4 outs 5 times. That's like, 80%!). Then I knocked him out with JJ vs his AK.
  • I raise 76 of hearts and get called in the blinds. Flop is 9h 8s 4h . The blind leads out and pushes just over the size of the pot. I'm opened ended with a flush draw, so I call. He has overs plus a gutshot (QJs) and then goes runner runner spades to win.
  • Blinds are getting up there, and my M is around 11. I try and steal with A7o and get called from the blinds with somone who just barely has me covered. Flop is 345 rainbow. I bet, and get min-raised. Not really sure what to do here. I figured I have my straight outs (A 2 or 6 gives me a straight) and my Ace might be an out. I figured them to have a min-pocket pair like 88. So I pushed and they had 33. No 8 outer for me, and I get busted right near the bubble.

PokerStars $10 rebuy

  • I played this rebuy a lite crazy, rebuying a couple time also, but I didn't get a biug stack in this one. I ended the rebuy period with only 7,000 in chips, which was about half of average. Yuck
  • I played super tight in this tournie. My stack flucuated between 8000 and 5000 for the next hour and a half. With blinds at 300/600, and my M of 5.5, I pushed AQ and got called by QQ. But I win! Suckout for me!
  • With my M sitting at 6, I double up on the big stack, who was playing really bad, when my AT beats his KT (I'm thinking that calling an All-in with KT, even if you are the chip leader, is bad). I now have some breathing room, and I am near average.
  • I double up on the big stack again, When he 3-bets me AGAIN, and I push. I have Aces this time. What does he have? KT again. LOL. I now have a stack above average and am looking really good.
  • I'm still right above average. I raise my AKs and the button pushes. They have me just barely covered. I make the easy call, and they have AQ. Horray! Flop is AQ5. Unbelievable. If I win that, I am in the top 10 in chips. Instead, I am knocked out right near the bubble.


Cash game were really up and down. I played about 900 hands at 200NL back over at Full Tilt. I ended up a whopping $60. And that was with winning my biggest pot ever at the cash games. There were so many suckouts, it was unbelievable.

Biggest pot. I flop the nut flush against a donk I've tanlged with a lot in the last few orbits (One of the hands below is from him). I'm not too happy when the board pairs the river, but I think my river push could look tilty. Especially against a donk.

I tanlged with this dude quite a bit, and I think he was getting frustrated with me. I decide to just flat call PF with my Kings.

I opted to just flat call the 4-bet from the regular, instead of just push PF with my Aces. What looks like an awesome flop for me, is actually bad, because there is no way I'm getting any more money from him unless he has AK.

I'm embarrassed to post this hand. Up against two donks. I should have re-popped PF, but I hate it when donks min-3-bet PF. Especially 50/10 donks. When they both check the turn, I figured I had the best hand. When the other donk calls my big bet, I should have put him on on two pair or something that beats me. Even a flush draw. And then the river brings the flush card, and I still call his shove. Really really bad call by me. Of course, his call on the turn is terrible and donks always get rewarded at Full Tilt.

This hand is against the guy from the KK vs JJ hand and happened 2 or 3 hands before that one. He has your typical Tagish stats, and he might be a regular. That board is pretty tame, without many draws there. What do you think of my Flop Re-raise? I'm kind of OK with this I guess. It did set up our KK vs JJ hand, so it had meta-game advantages

Another very similar hand as the above, except this one is against a 55/4 donk. This re-raise probably isn't good against an idiot who probably doesn't think beyond just what he has in his hand.

This one is against the donk from my biggest pot ever. Again, another terrible call by him gets rewarded. My river call is marginal though, but I put him on a hand with a 5 in it, like 65 or something. So I thought that two pair hands are in his range. With the river card also bringing the flush though, I think this is more of a check/fold on the river. Argggg.

And then we'll end on funny note. I decide to fire a 2nd barrel here. Check out what he calls (and wins) with. Dammit PokerFool! Don't bluff the calling stations!!
