      Put in $30 on Pokerstars, now up to $64 ($10 is thanks to bonus that was almost cleared back when I put in money but sucked and went bust) in just 5 days. Booya. Won 4/6 four-man heads-up tournaments. :) Faced some appalingly bad opponents on the way, one with 22/4/13 in heads up lol.

      I've still yet to win a big cash amount in one session.

      I'm still just a grinder.

      I may have won some big money by now if I played those kind of tournaments but I tend to stick with $5 buy ins.

      My biggest single win is only like $400.

      But hey I'm a winning player, thats all that matters to me right now, there is time enough for a big payout yet.

      and who is afraid of donkeys? You got to love your donkeys and treat them real nice.

      So what that only 421 hands? This is humorous posting, if you don't have humor sense, then don't reply.

      Some people say they are afraid to shove in or raise, because donkey can have any two cards and catch full house.

      I love you man. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

      villain is like 60/40/0
      always puts small defensive bets with like 3rd-4th pair (did it 4 times in a row before)
      dont really know what i wanted to rep on the river, i guess a rivered set or something, but i was sure i have enormous fold equity against his 5th pair or whatever

      i now my play was too passive and probably horrible, just called for the odds all the way through, but the surprise was big :D

      he snapcalled and mucked i was like lol
