The CHIPSTACK Thread

[Mod Note: As mentioned here, this thread is for displaying chips won in live, legal casinos and card rooms. Pics from home games and underground games will be deleted. Pics from tournaments are generally frowned upon and will likely be deleted. Do tell what the game, stake, and buy-in were, if you'd like.]

Did you have a great day at the tables? Would you like to show off a bit? This is the thread to do it. Post a pic of your chipstack! A few suggestions: Include the poker room/day-date/game(s)/stakes and w/e else you think would be approriate. Perhaps add a notable hand from your session as well.

BUT, that is not all! Maybe you've had a horrible day and all you have left is a puny chip stack. This is the place to post that also! We all know what it's like to lose big and not have anybody to talk to about it. Certainly not your folks, significant others or even your friends who will pray that you just stop. Here you can unload because the readers are not trapped and may even offer you solace.

I will start but let me say first that I've got much bigger chip stack pics available but didn't have the dates so I had to wait until they let me win for once:

Casino Arizona/11-28-11/8-16 LHE:



At the time of the pic I was winning $440 running at just under 7BB's/hr.

Notable hand: UTG limps, I raise 9-9 UTG+1 in the laughable attempt to isolate in an 8-16 game. 4 players called behind.

Flop:

Q-10-10, a solid hit ! UTG checks, I bet because I didn't know what else to do and get 2 callers. While I was calling myself an idiot the dealer put out the turn:

9! I bet, next player raises, other guy calls, I 3!, both call.

River: K. I bet, both call, I announce FULL HOUSE!, both moan and flash 10's.



I also think that there's a place itt if you're at a table when an enormous pot develops and you have taken a pic.

So................GO!

I vote we should post our buy-in too. I've had a 1500 stack at a 1/2nl game but I was in for 700 so I didn't think it was very impressive.

Re: The CHIPSTACK Thread

Had a picture on a phone from three phones ago... cannot locate anymore.

Wasn't me unfortunately. Played with a guy who ran $200 up to ~$6500 in a 2/5 spread limit game with a max buy of $200 and a max bet of $200 in about 4 hours. It was and is to this day the most incredible heater I've ever seen! He literally won 90% of all the hands, most at showdown, for the entire time at the table. The pic I had showed him behind the monster stack of $5 chips, in a triangle shape that went across the betting line and up 3 stories!

Re: The CHIPSTACK Thread

Here are a few shots I have of various sessions. Sorry none at 1/2 NL, but I will throw em on here anyway cause the thread needs more pics!

This was a 5500ish sess I had at 300-500 (5/5NL)


Two months later, I broke my personal best at 5/5 NL with this 8000ish one at same stakes.


This is about 11k at the commerce 5/10.


This was a 17k stack I amassed at 5/10 with a 500-2500 buy in structure.


Finally, this is a 26k stack I got at a 700-3000 game with 5/10/20 blinds.


I have a lot more nice session shots in my phone at various stakes; thought these were pretty nice!

Re: The CHIPSTACK Thread



Friends and I felt like screwing around at a B&M 2/4 mixed game, and bought as many whites as the cage would allow, just to build towers and splash around in some HOSE...Wish I ever figured out how to build the spirally one....

Re: The CHIPSTACK Thread

Below is my stack immediately before losing almost all of it in 1-2 PLO (with obscene straddling) to quad fours with 6677ds on a board that ran out 634-4-7. Damned river 7. It was as if angels sang to me, delivering the safest card in the deck... ...bastard angels. There's 4-5 hundreds there, but hard to tell as they're more to the right of the camera shot. [Not remarkable for most of you, but my limits are generally much more casual. Still one of my top-5 chipstacks on normal buy-ins.]



And, for those of you who weren't there, the "Overcompensation" stack from the 2+2 party at the Wynn this year:

Re: The CHIPSTACK Thread

Somebody bought in for that? It reminds me of the time at Ft. McDowell, AZ that I got drunk and bought into a 3-6 game for 14 racks. A friend came by and said something like 'Holy Mother Of God! What's going on here?' and I answered 'I think I'm stuck $50.'

Re: The CHIPSTACK Thread



This is from about a month ago. $2/$5 at DE Park, $1k max buy-in. I bought in for $500 and cashed out for $3,300 5 hours later.

Here's the hand that started it all.

About 30 hands into my session (Up to ~$780) I get A-K UTG and raise to $25. I get 3 callers.

Pot: $100
Flop: 10 J Q

I'm first to act and lead out $30. Player to my left raises all-in to $110. The next player raises to $300 (Has another $300-$350 behind). The last guy then calls the $300 (He has over $1,500 behind).

This all happened fairly fast and I take a few seconds to take in the hell what just happened. I go all-in for $72X and pray for no heart. Both players call after a good amount of time and 3 out of the 4 are all-in, no more action.

I tabled my cards right after all the action was finished on the flop to show I had the current best hand. I thought someone else would have AK as well, but no one else showed so I then thought I was up against a set, a flush draw, and didn't care much for what the guy that shoved for $110 had.

Pot: $2400

Turn:6
River: J

Worst. River. Ever.

Or so I thought. The guy who had everyone covered mucked quickly. The guy who shoved for $110 showed 9-10o for a lower straight and the other guy showed Q-10.

What did the guy who mucked have? My guess is A-A or K-K and just couldn't find the fold button.

Wow, board paired and flush hit and you still won. Sometimes you are just in the right spot at the right time. GG.
