In the 22:00 PSO i was ridiculously card dead. To make it even 10x worse, i was sat at a table of ATC pushers, and i had never heard of one of 'em.

i was so card dead and frustrated watching these donks push eachother around with crap hands, I decided to record my hand history for a unique challenge.

the challenge is........A. guess the hands i actually SAW A FLOP with.

B. guess the hands i WON a hand with.

C. guess BOTH of the above.

You can try ONLY option A or B if you want. obviously if u do C, you are doing both A and B.
got it?

of course i will give you the stats that are always available in a tourney.
and the stats will give you some obvious hints as to the answers of each option in the challenge.....i have also made some notes in the history that actually give some answers. And......i have already told ya that i was at a table with ALL pushing/ATC/bingo donks.
And.......as a last hint: I WAS actually trying to get as far as i could in this tourney as to get the least negative points possible or obviously cash (which i didn't).

my current bankroll is a whopping $3.78....all from freerolling..... and pokerstars fixed my account to where i can now transfer and accept transfers.

first person to guess option A wins.....a whopping .50 cents

option B wins....... .25 cents

option C wins........$1.00

only one payment for each option..........as each option is guessed i will say who guessed it and their reply will be in this thread, and that option is done......... and if option C is guessed correctly before A or B is guessed, that person wins the $1.00 and the challenge is over.

post your guesses in this thread as clearly as you can.........stating first which option you are trying.

have fun........i don't think this should be too hard for some of us.

ericlee.......sorry if i didn't make the challenge clear........for option C you are trying to guess ALL the hands i SAW A FLOP with, AND ALL the hands i WON with. the stats should give you the info u need to first get started. hint hint.

i thought i made it pretty clear really......i gave u a list of the hands i was dealt, and the stats which pretty much tell ya how many hands i saw the flop with, and how many i won. all u gotta do is guess which ones out of the list provided fit those categories. not many hands at all either.

So I'm just gonna try and pick A, where you saw the flop, and provide my work as a possible aid to others.

Saw flop 9 times, 3 BB, 1 SB, 5 other.
You won 3 of 6 at showdown, 2 without showdown.
So you folded post flop at least once, no more than thrice (don't know if the 2 "won without showdown" were pre or post flop)

BB - saw 3
1 is 7h2c BB - was forced all in with 550 chips and hit Quad 2's .... LOL
Others:
10s7s BB
6s5s BB
10d2c BB
Js6c BB
As7c BB
10h9h BB
3d10d BB

My guesses for 2 and 3 are 6s5s and 10h9h.

SB - saw 1 of
10c6h SB
3hKs SB
5c9c SB
Jc4d SB
9hKh SB
4h7d SB
8sJd SB
6d3s SB

My guess is 9hKh

Others - saw 5 of the rest.
1 is 8h8c - busted out 395th place

Likely hands:

AcAh B
AhJh
KcQc
7d7c B
I'd call that the top 4 - so that's my guess. Other possibles:

Ah5h
10dAc
6h7h
2h7h B (just kidding - or am I? It is suited on the button . . .)
Ks9c B
2c3c
Jc2c B

Well, if I get another guess . . . prolly one of the hearted hands, A5 or 67. A5 is the first decent hand you saw, but the wheel rolls onto the board so rarely . . . still, that flush opportunity is tempting. Let's go with that. Final answer, final guess - there's a limit to how desperate I'm willing to appear for fiddycent.

If I'm wrong/ineligible, maybe I'll take a stab at the WINNERS. That's right, I said WINNER!

Thanks for the generosity hip - you just covered my 4 failed .10 turbos last night and my .10 tourney at 1:00 PT today.

So, the dollar for both is off the table. .25 for the WINNING hands (when hiphop was a whole man) is still out there. If no one gets it by the time I WIN that 1:00 tourney, I'll be taking a guess.

Kinda odd how hard it is to give money away here . . .

a "whole" man? what?? lol.....anyways , enjoy the 50 cents...........i thought the challenge was kinda simple, it just took a couple minutes of deductive reasoning to figure it out right?

hell, some of the answers where pretty much given.
