It's a fold barring exploit. I wish you won that pot so that you got a liking for the taste of blood...

Re: Giving Something Back; December Charity Challenge with you-mad-br0 #2

Every time I picture the charity webpage's section about dem "mosquito nets* I laugh out loud for a good 4-5 seconds.

I'm evil XD there's a special place in Hell for me. # of Hellbound poker players aside from me: Bodgik77, luxpoker, Martim C, Ankhes and Welshgaz.

Thanks for the smile, Mr. PlasticElephant aka You-mad-br0 aka **THE mosquito net hero** aka Africa demi-God.

You deserve to have a statue built for you - in the name of your everlasting generosity.

In jnandez channel he is always like "fold this, fold that", QQ pre too loose, we have the nut straight but he could have some redraws lol.

It' easy to make hands with 4 cards haha.

Amazing, this endorsement reduces the tilt significantly.

Played some 500z in the right game today for a bit before the pool got terrible, won some all in coolers, played reasonably, saw some weird **** from 'regs'. Tempting to play some more because the rake is low, but pools never really look very appealing, so kind of doubtful I'll ever put in a lot of volume there.




Also played a few hundred hands on RIO and won a couple of hundred euros, including this gem first hand:



Posted on instagram hoping to win the competition which sums up my thoughts on the site. Good software and splash the pot is genius, hope it gets some liquidity higher so I can play more in years to come.

Still looking for a twitch guy.

May as well keep updating whilst I'm running well, some more heat today.



+ 700 euro on RIO.

Had very little motivation to play this evening, but then 500 popped off on RIO. I'd span my 600 euro deposit into 1k so decided to take a responsible 1.4BI shot.

Game was very fun and one of my two opponents was on twitch talking through his (slightly dubious) strategy, so it felt a bit unfair. Actually almost went busto at the start, but span my broken stack into 1.2k in the end.

Some fun Stars hands from today, no RIO hh yet:

Re: Giving Something Back; December Charity Challenge with you-mad-br0 #2

February was a fairly reasonable month all things considered. With bitb, 28 days, and a trip away, volume was poor, but ran reasonably I think:



Also won approx 1k euro at 500 on RIO, will hopefully get more volume in there next month if the same 'regs' keep playing.

Lifewise, I took a trip to Edinburgh with psek1, dontmarchrun and another friend and climbed a mountain, then went skiing in France for a week with D7, ishter, Bena, 464, LinusLunch, and Peter804.

We had unbelievable weather for the ski trip and just a really great week overall. On top of that, I dispatched all the whales at Psych too.

A few pictures from March:

Sliding a tube we set up in our chalet 'garden' on a snowy day



Myself on the instagram grind



The whole crew except for 464



d7 at the bottom of a kll33n zone



dmr and his 10/10 dog



arthurs seat in Edinburgh






March will be a bit of a disrupted month with another week of skiing, and needing to find a place to live (looking at Edinburgh, hmu if you have a space/ would want one for a few months).

Main goals are to play 35k hands, average higher stakes, keep learning, and not break myself again.

Is the hole in the rock pic in Tignes? I have vague memories of sliding face first down something similar.

yeah seems a solid conclusion

Hit the classic post beginning of month graph jinx today:



Misplayed a few hands, and a bit depressing to achieve -100b/100 for 500 hands at 400 Back at it tomorrow.

Obv not, 44 wsd too, just variance, wwsf/wsd take too many hands to converge to your normal number and both are highly sensitive to rungood/runbad.

2k hands is nothing for those 2 stats, with 10k hands they get closer but could still be off. Also OP is one of the more aggro regs of 200z, so it's more likely that he should have a 48+ wwsf.
