Yeah that game sucked. I still feel like Michigan is the better team, but when you have a billion turnovers in one game there's not too many teams you're gonna beat. I think Michigan's going 4-8 this year. I think ND will end up with a losing record too. This is basically a pointless season for both teams, but it would've been nice to beat ND 3 years in a row.

PS: They need to take down that touchdown Jesus building. Pictures of Jesus creep me out.

That seems almost unbelievable. Even if you ran 3 SDs better than the mean (read: ran sick hot--the 99.85th percentile) you'd still need a true win rate of 4.9BB/100 to win 1000BB in 10k hands. Are you including bonuses, rakeback and credits in your 1,000BB?

In my last 11.8k hands from 3-6 to 50-100 I am running at 4.54bb/100.(not including bonii, rakeback and credits). However there is a stark difference from what I have done and what Abba is claiming to have done.

My 11.8K hands occurred over a 2 month period of very care careful table selection. For Abba to accomplish what he did in a week's time means, hes probably not table selecting that much. This to me is what makes Abba's results so extraordinary. Anybody can attain some sick BB/100 numbers if they rig things in their favor. To just sit down and play all tables and rack up Abba's numbers is extremely impressive. I must admit I too find it hard to believe.

Re: ***Official Absolute Poker/UltimateBet Regs Thread***

it includes rakeback stuff.

i can give a screenshot of my desktop PC stuff that i started around the 4th (edit: 5th) of the month. i dont have pt on my laptop so the amount i added up in my head isnt exact. the table winnings should be though because i checked the cashier before each session.


edit: here's a better pic that filters for the dates in question

Yeah, your streak is certainly doable. I am running at 13bb/100 over my last 13k hands on AP, though there is alot of huhu and 3-handed mixed in. Its still like a 900bb upswing.

Here is my quick screenshot brag. Its weird but I had to switch copies of windows back in July. I have this used laptop (Have to buy used to save money because of huge laptop smashing problem/leak) and the copy of Windows just stopped working so I just used my desktop copy of Vista. Anyway it didnt save any of my July hands, but I ran just as hot if not hotter over that month.

must be amazing. [/amc]

i dont think i run well overall. at least not when it counts.

i dont mean monetarily. i mean the times where you take the shots at a bigger level in soft games, and just get pounded time and time again which discourages you to take another shot for a while. and that's really the problem... not the money lost, but the fact that i cant bring myself to play them because im so convinced ill get crushed again. so i pass on a million good games because im a pussy... which is really a lot more important than running in god mode at 5/10 for a couple weeks.

I must be a weirdo, because I dread seeing a soft 30 game going knowing that I have to play and I'm going to drop 25bb minimum because I run sick bad at that limit.

I jump at the chance to play a 50 game though because I run good over there.

75/150 was poised to be my golden stake, but like one week after i had my glory sessions, they took it away along with it's green chip bretheren - 25/50.

Mitch not to rain on your parade or anything but Im guessing you are new to holdem manager. bb/100 in HEM are big blinds BB/100 are big bets. You can correct this by clicking on the plus sign and selecting BB/100. Still very nice run.

Yeah I know. Graph in bb is 895bb uptick. In big blinds its like 1500+. +26k should be around 900bb for my avg limit.

Ahh, I see. in the bb/100 column it is big blinds per 100. That is friggin stupid. So its 6.88/100. Never even thought to question it.

Mid stakes have been very easy this month. 5/10 10/20 15/30 ... I wish I could say the same for 30 and above.

Re: ***Official Absolute Poker/UltimateBet Regs Thread***

Update on my August interest (mostly for Nina). I called again. This time they shipped me the monies for some reason. I guess it just depends on who you talk to.

Gas card note: About a month ago I cashed in some of my points for these. I call today and ask wtf are my gas cards. They shipped them a couple days ago. I can expect them in 6 to 8 weeks. My total wait time will be over 10 weeks. Not a big deal, but wtf, AP.
