    Good luck. Let me know what happens, as I can't rail you since I'm at my mom's and don't have .com on her computer... so I can't pull it up.

            match 2 - actually didnt play great but caught a break when my opponent bluffed while i had trips, to completely cripple himself.

            strange move as he was totally in control of the match.

            Grapping a sandwich and will post the hand after....

              keep it up. If you can win one that you didn't play as great... that's another good thing.

                now he is repping the J but to be honest i thought his bet too big he hadn't pushed any other str8's if he made the st8 on turn surly he raised smaller. oh well, at least I get a chuckle after the hand was over and he calls me an idiot.

                    here's what I'd have done differently with the 10's. preflop: raise to 270 instead of 180. When I raise pre, my std is to 3X, so I'd want to go with my std raise. flop: gotta c-bet the flop. There's a straight draw out there and you don't want the opp with a J or 9 drawing to it for free. The opp could fold, but if they get a free card, you could be in deep trouble. turn: BIG scare card. If the opp has a J (which they'd have checked the flop with), you're in a world of hurt. I like your lead bet here (needed to lead both streets though). Their shove here.... I'm NOT calling. You're lucky that your opp bluffs a ton, because probably 95+% of the time, you're up against a straight here. Good luck in the next one umbup:

                      round 3 completed, much easier match from my point of view i slowed my play down, not raise size but how fast i click buttons did help focus me. final hand...

                        out in the 4th... so close and yet so far

                        I want to say i've never seen so many hits on the river but..i don't play much heads up.

                        On the plus side the match lasted just about 100 hands rather than my normal 30 or so.

                        out in 261st .

                        dang it all.
                        was fun if a lot frustrating

                        big thanks to sandtrap and JWK.

                          If it lasted 100 hands, then neither one of you were throwing chips away and both had to have been playing well. Too bad you couldn't make the next round.... good try grade b
