Some 200 400

Since my last post a week or so ago, i've played a fair few sessions of $200/$400. I've probably won about $150,000 in that time but haven't really been playing good, i seem to tilt worse it that game than my regular stakes. In the last month i won almost exactly $1 million, making me up about $2 million on the year. Its just so sick, at the start of the year my target for what i wanted to win online for 2008 was $750k-$1 million, must make sure i don't give it back!

Here are some of the recent big pots i played...

Antonius makes a good call against me

Antonius gets lucky

Cracking the Aces

Big pot on Betfair

One i lost to ICallSoWhat

600 bb pot that my opponent played like a ******

HU v Durrrr hand 1

HU v Durrrr hand 2

HU v Durrrr hand 3

HU v Durrrr hand 4

I guess the last one is most interesting, especially as its a $143,000 pot. I think his flop call is pretty bad. I'm definitely betting the majority of blank cards. If his plan is to bet out if any AKQ24 no flush/straight cards comes on the turn then i was pushing (as i showed). Maybe he was planning to represent the flush too with the bare king (i guess so). Anyway, i got lucky after he hit his two outer on the turn!
