      Just great. SS with steal rate 40% and my AK was worthless this time.
      But this in not the end, couple of hands later with the same opponent (he's steal rate was 40% - all game was fighting for a blinds):

      Like you can see - when I'm trying my luck with AK - I'm loosing.
      When I'm making good reads of opponent and going all in because I've got better hand - I'm loosing.

      That's why I need to ask for an advice.
      Who I need to kill as as gift for gods of poker?
      I think they are angry on me!
      How you guys are dealing with gods of poker?
      I've got 2 mates at my house atm.
      Will it be enough for gods of poker? :f_o:
