Recovery

Monday: +$821
I had several ITMs today then had problems closing it out each and every time. I only won one SNG, all the other money comes from 2nd and 3rd place finishes. I played mostly at Stars (should even be PlatinumStar by tomorrow night) and only a little at CelebPoker.

I busted out of the Poker-Tester.com tourney in 11th place, when my flopped two pair could not hold up against a flush draw. We did have a record turnout of 33 players, though, which was very nice. Congratulations go out to Swordsman for taking it down!

I do have a hand history that I would like to share from a $100+9 SNG I played at CelebPoker tonight:

In case my color coding didn't confuse you to death, try taking another look at this hand. I can't believe these guys are real-money players, let alone play $109 SNGs. They both call my pot-sized preflop, postflop, and turn bets like it's a normal deal. Don't get me wrong here, I'm not complaining about the suckout. Matter of fact, I'm happy these guys play this way. I hope they tell their brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, aunts, and uncles about their (short term) winnings.

I used to give players the benefit of the doubt, but from now, at CelebPoker, you are a donkey until proven otherwise!

Echt ein Wahnsinn. Woher haben diese Wahnsinnigen die Kohle um ein 100 $ Turnier zu spielen. Unglaublich!

Mensch Cort das musst du erkennen das du das Ding im River verlieren wirst gegen die Donkeys :)
Das wäre mal ein krasser Laydown gewesen.

Hoffe du bist danach nicht auf TILT umgestiegen.Nach so einer Aktion brauch ich immer min. 60 Minuten Pause um mich abreagieren zu können.
