      well, just made over 5.5BI at 6-max NL50 (ty deepstacked fish)
      ran very good overall, nothing got cracked, and I think I played some very solid poker, not making too many fancy plays(except one which worked perfectly, will post hands later), giving up my lately-acquired 31/26 style, being more aggro to ship more non showdown pots (won almost 100BB that way)

      I just need 9 more sesh like this one and I'm back to peak :D

      pretty relieved tbh. I was already seeing myself busto in a week or so :D .

      also got into an argument w/ a shortstack whom i suspect was a ps member but it was so funny to sell myself as a huge donk after i cracked his AKo w/ T9s (he didn't understand I had 42% equity preflop, and I was pfr + running good so made the call)

      chat went ~ like that
      SS: omg you %°#%°# fish
      SS: you're so dumb
      Me: what ? I won so shut it
      SS: haha you're actually more stupid than I thought
      SS: don't think you're good, you're horrible
      SS: anyway I don't care I have a huge roll
      Me: O rly, how much ?
      SS: 2500
      Me: yeah and you're SSing NL50
      SS: just relaxing, played NL200 yesterday
      Me: ah ...so that explains it your roll was 2500 but not anymore
      SS(changing subject): have you ever heard about odds
      Me: nope, what are they ?
      SS: ù("##ù% just play your game man, you make wanna vomit
      Me: sry, forgot to brush my teeth today, must be a bit smelly
      ...
      :D

      tbh i'd rather don't have my downswing and grind steadily, would be better for my nerves and sleeping schedule

      btw: posting a graph always turns on/off the doomswitch ;)

      just played another sesh
      ran set vs straight, aa cracked by 22, didn't hit a flop,

      and some f***g idiot didn't fold to my perfect 3barrelbluff though he was only holding turned middle pair no kicker on a really scary board

      Uuuuuh. You didnt understand that your preflop equity against this certain hand means nothing since you are crushed against his range which is TT+ , AK , AQ. I also dont see what running good has to do with making a crying call.
      That doesnt mean he is right to start bitching , but the play is just bad.

      c'mon undercover, i highly doubt princess is serious about the "running good" part. and i also doubt he didn't have the odds for a call... (partly why shortstacking is so damned profitable)

      Well i have played so many hands with these curses of poker that i know you get no odds to call against their range unless they have lot less than 20 BBs. Although i see now that he plays SH , so the shortstack has a bigger range most likely (but still german shortstacks are nits even in SH as opposed to the russians).
      Thats my opinion anyway. I wouldnt ever call a shortstack with a suited conn if i have raised to 3-4 BB and have to call 15+ more. In a steal/resteal situation its very marginal to call , otherwise its a spew i believe.
