      tilted badly when got 7th streeted every showdown when 1 tabling. thankfully more tables opened so got to 3 tables. incidentally original table kept 7th streeting me until i lose 2 BI but other 2 tables ended up winning 2 BI on both without shenanigans of 1st table. multitabling really does reduce variance :D

      happy NY and remember

      just an absolute terrible day. stars started some new VIP incentives and tweaked the software for the fishes. five times that i had trips that didn't improve i was rivered with a 7 (only the 7) for 56789 straight. there is a definite pattern and i will be throwing away trips on the river to any straight draw. had 11 flushes, 6 of which were beaten by full houses, 2 by larger flushes. In over 1400 hands i got the wheel 5 times, only scooped once and actually got quartered in one hand where villain had flush as well as wheel. Never actually seen that in stud, although i know it's chronic in Omaha8

      will try again today but will really be tightening up my range and looking to play only connected or suited low draws as well as 3 runner straights and any three flush cards. Fuck pocket pairs, got so many of them that they are as negative EV as 72o in holdem

      if any fellow strategists were playing stud 8 yesterday (cash), that in particularly full ring games there were all 8 door cards 6 and unde including 2 aces, in some cases three or four hands in a row.... strange? it gets better, 4 players stay in hand then next 3 streets come up with 11 low and 1 high.... the twist is the high card was always J. most times i remember it to be a club but i'm sure other suits were involved. One hand in particular was absolute carnage when 4 villains went to showdown and all turned over low draws lmfao. the poor guy with 76 low probably should have realised he was beaten, but no doubt was very surprised to find he was 4th best :D . On other occasions plenty of showdown hands involving 3 low hands as weel as other ones where villain eventually folded 8 lows.

      i apologise if this sounds like a tirade but no, that was last night,and now it's tomorrow morning but i would like to tell you guys two things

      1) i'll be back again today

      2)WARNING!!!!!! Not only watch your opponents ......WATCH THE SOFTWARE
      seriously yesterday was like playing in a dream

      Quote of the day:"the soft is in a really bad mood today" - can't remember name of player :D

      anyway i better go back and hit the tables again

      this is Lazza from Oz signing off and remember

      crush... crush.... CRUSH!!!!!!!
