Lol I played this guy in a 100 heads up sng won and then he continued to rematch me and shove every hand and call any shove from me. Ended up playing about 15 matches I would say. Somehow only ended up 500.

Re: hosnimubarak on ftp

FTP recently changed the structure of HU ST SNGs. It used to be that 10bb push-fold poker, but now players start with 500 chips @ 10-20 blind levels. It will be interesting to know what effect that will have on this player.

how much do you expect to win in this criteria? you apparently won 10 and lost 5, which works out @ 66% win rate... I cant imagine your expected win is much higher vs someone who shoves every hand in a shallow stacked hu sng

Re: hosnimubarak on ftp

lol his profession on Pocket fives says President of Eygpt
but seriously, who thinks this guy is really 81 and from eygpt?
Sounds a little fishy to me, maybe we need to get 2+2 investigators on this stat!

My sources tell me he actually is Hosni Mubarak. I guess you get a lot of free time when you're the President of Egypt.

Re: hosnimubarak on ftp

I played him in a $300 heads up game. I read on twoplustwo about fulltilt giving out bonuses to players so i played there again and turned my 50 dollars into a grand in about a week. I thought i was hot **** and took a roller coaster ride through the high(er) stakes. When i first sat i thought he was a pro since he has his own custom avatar. He played solid (obviously) but i ended up winning, i assume i got lucky i dont remember. I looked up his stats while playing him and saw he took down a huge guaranteed tourney, I forget how much though.

After playing a decent amount of these games i quickly withdrew a grand and blew my last $250. It was hard to take 10-20 dollar games serious after playing the 300s.

Re: hosnimubarak on ftp

haha not so much. I dont remember exactly i think he had a shaved/bald head and glasses on or something but not positive. Unfortunately it was not hosni mubarak the president and if i had to guess the cartoon's age, mid 30s? I was more concerned about how stupid i was for playing and my run to busto.

SS has his "Turbo Ratio" at 70%. Obv this is not all STs, but if u look at his "recent games", almost 100% of the last 50 are STs. SS will go as far as 250, and for the other 200, I'd say it's the opposite, almost no STs.

Go figure, w\e he's doing and whoever he is, he's doing it right, lol.
