Slipped a bit there, bad decision on my part with QJos. Currently 115 of 141. Stats so far:

During current Hold'em session you were dealt 287 hands and saw flop:
- 10 out of 32 times while in big blind (31%)
- 8 out of 32 times while in small blind (25%)
- 15 out of 223 times in other positions (6%)
- a total of 33 out of 287 (11%)
Pots won at showdown - 10 of 13 (76%)
Pots won without showdown - 14

Fairly typical for this type of tourney, although total % is a little low. I need some kind of hand that I can play, 82os just doesn`t cut it and bluffing at this level is a bad idea.



ps. sorry if I missed any chat, I tend to watch stats and position at this level.

pps. I know you`re there, Moxie, and thanks. Brings back old times!!

All in with AKos under the gun, get called by ATos and split on JJ774 board. Sometimes you just can`t win lol. Oh well at least I didn`t lose. Need another hand soon tho.

On life support now, 89th of 97 with less than 10 BB. It`s been a great run though!! Oh no, everyone just folded to me and I had pocket rockets...sometimes I hate this game.

I try not to ever tilt but getting a walk with rockets or kings when I need chips bugs me more than any bad beat.

Hey I dare you to tell gunners that I would "check-raise" his grandma to.

Folded KJos on the button, would have made jacks full of kings, but never be results oriented. I would fold that hand again in the same situation.

Really on life support now, 78th of 79. Some really creative clocking helped me along the way, there are some lessons to be learned in the Open league. Current stats:

During current Hold'em session you were dealt 333 hands and saw flop:
- 10 out of 38 times while in big blind (26%)
- 8 out of 37 times while in small blind (21%)
- 16 out of 258 times in other positions (6%)
- a total of 34 out of 333 (10%)
Pots won at showdown - 11 of 14 (78%)
Pots won without showdown - 16

I`m still really happy, this is a deep run in a large popular tourney (Entrants 5,801). I`m in the small blind after the break, so I decide to go with A7os vs 88, he hits quads on the flop of 878. I finish in 78th place for $16.24, not a bad return for $2.20. One of these days I`ll get my ONE TIME, BIG TIME, like someone likes to say.

G`nite all.

Hey Joy!

Great job again.

I'll be in these with you hopefully someday. That was a semi-regular tourney for me before black friday.
