Badda badda boom

Well things haven't changed that much since the last post. Things haven't got worse though which i guess is ok. I keep having alternate winning/losing days. Had a couple of massive losing days last week when i did a few buy ins on the 100/200 PL Omaha on Betfair. I am actually feeling more positive and have been playing alot better (i think).

This year i have played the biggest pots of my life. Here are the biggest winning and losing ones.

- $100/$200 6 handed NL Hold'em on Betfair. I have $60000 stack. I make it $700 to go with AK. One caller in small blind. Loose aggressive player with big stack. Flop AAK. How does this become a $120000 pot? Ridiculous. He checks... i check. Turn 5. He checks... i bet $1600 he calls. River a Q. He leads for $2000. I make it $8000. He makes it $24000. I push all in expecting a split pot. He calls and mucks. Yikes.

- $100/$200 PLO Heads Up. I have $55000 stack. Opponent has me covered. He raises his button to $600. I reraise to $1800 with 6677 double suited. He re re raises to $5400. I call. Flop 6s8s5d. I check he bets $10000 i go all in he calls with AAxx and the ace flush draw. Turn 3. River Ace. That was $110000 pot.

I decided a few weeks ago to go to Goa next Tuesday for the Asian Poker Classic. There is $250000 added minimum and the resort looks cool. I'll do an update from there....

Hey Ben,

Just watched you play Layne Flack HU PL Omaha Cap on Full Tilt. About the comment you made about him being so bad: You really think he played bad or did he just hit the deck most of the time? Just curious.
