Re: The CHIPSTACK Thread

Concord Card Casino; Vienna, Austria. 1/2 PLO.



Montesino; Vienna, Austria. 1/2 PLO.



Venetian; Las Vegas, NV. 8/16 O8.



The first one eventually became the second-largest chipstack I've ever had. The most important hand came when I had KQJT in the blinds. Flop JT9. I bet the pot, but somehow we got all the money in four ways. When I saw the cards face up at the end of the hand, I knew why:

Me: nut straight, K-high flush draw;
V1: A-high flush draw;
V2: top set;
V3: nut straight.

Turn T.

The Venetian picture also was not the peak of that stack. I added at least two more racks before I picked up.

Nice. I'd be terrified to play $5-10 PLO, I admit it.

Re: The CHIPSTACK Thread



Stacks of $200. About $2900 there from a 12hr 2-5NL session. Was in the game for $600. As I was racking up during my last round I actually added another $400 to leave with $3300. It was hard not to flop a set that night.

My IRL poker buddies would crack up if they heard this. Omaha is by far my game of choice, whether it be PLO or O8.

xe.com is the site I use to check conversions. It's very easy to use. As of right now, it's 1 EUR = 1.25 USD. When those stacks were built, it was closer to 1 EUR = 1.5 USD (1.45 if I recall correctly). The Greece/Italy stuff happened between then and now and the Hungary stuff is ongoing, so I think that is weakening the EUR v. USD.

Re: The CHIPSTACK Thread

1/3 at Aria last night...bought in for $300:



Actually added another $200 before calling it a night and cashing out for $1800. Can't remember ever winning 5 buy-ins in one session.

Big hand of the night occurred when I had just over $600 and the guy directly to my left had over $1000 - most of which had been due to him winning 4 hands against Crazy Mike, who sat down for 15 minutes and pushed blind every hand.

I raised in MP to $13 with AKos and Villain called. It was HU to the flop:

AK6 rainbow.

I led for $25. Villain immediately raised to $125. I called.

Turn was a 2 that completed the rainbow. I checked.

Villain bet $200. (Now, I think he has one of two hands - A6 or 66. No point in raising, so I call.)

River Q. I was ready to put my last $300 in, but he looked anxious to continue the betting, so I checked. He pushes. I called. He turned over AQ.

Sometimes I love poker.

Re: The CHIPSTACK Thread

I feel silly posting this because I posted it in another thread right before I found this one, but here goes, my biggest stack ever (it actually ended a little larger than this).

Sat down with 200, finished 4 hours later with 1939.

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

From a session this week: 1/2NL, bought in for $200, that's a bit over $800 in the photo. Nothing like the monster stacks in this thread, but for little me it was a big deal. I gotta work on my photography skills next.
