    so when the thread was started, I had always the best tables running over 5-6 sites, but over the last week i've just fired up any tables and played nearly anyone. I've never considered myself a Hu player and some of these players I know are good at Hu, but i was just playing them to get games started, and to test myself... so ofc can lead to losses and also swings/higher variance. i've come out on top so far in Hu games anyway so i'm happy with that.

    Hud is just the standard one HEM uses. i've not worked out how to change it to my own preferences one.

    HH's coming

                  I filtered my $5/10 hands by the one i had won the most bb's on... which actually is quite an interesting hand, not just an all in with AA vs KK preflop...



                    BTN: $1,088.75 (108.9 bb)
                    SB: $1,010 (101 bb)
                    BB: $2,894.75 (289.5 bb)
                    UTG: $1,377 (137.7 bb)
                    Hero (MP): $1,975 (197.5 bb)
                    CO: $1,015 (101.5 bb)

                    Preflop: Hero is MP with J J
                    UTG raises to $30, Hero calls $30, 2 folds, SB calls $25, BB raises to $140, UTG calls $110, Hero calls $110, SB folds

                    Flop: ($450) J K A (3 players)
                    BB bets $320, UTG folds, Hero calls $320

                    Turn: ($1,090) 9 (2 players)
                    BB checks, Hero bets $375, BB calls $375

                    River: ($1,840) 5 (2 players)
                    BB checks, Hero bets $1,140 and is all-in, BB calls $1,140
