      A few pretty unlikely things happened tonight. Here is the first one:

      PokerStars - $0.05/$0.10 (6 max) - Holdem - 4 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Piotrek510 (BTN): 28.4 BB
      YohanN7 (SB): 13.1 BB
      algiune (BB): 35.6 BB
      rvlost (CO): 44.7 BB

      YohanN7 posts SB 0.2 BB, algiune posts BB 0.5 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 0.7 BB) YohanN7 has 6:diamond: 5:diamond:

      fold, Piotrek510 calls 0.5 BB, YohanN7 calls 0.3 BB, algiune checks

      Flop: (1.5 BB, 3 players) 7:diamond: 6:club: 9:spade:
      YohanN7 checks, algiune checks, Piotrek510 bets 0.5 BB, YohanN7 raises to 1 BB, fold, Piotrek510 calls 0.5 BB

      Turn: (3.5 BB, 2 players) 8:diamond:
      YohanN7 bets 1 BB, Piotrek510 raises to 2 BB, YohanN7 calls 1 BB

      River: (7.5 BB, 2 players) 4:diamond:
      YohanN7 checks, Piotrek510 bets 1 BB, YohanN7 calls 1 BB

      Piotrek510 shows J:heart: T:club: (Straight, Jack High) (Pre 61%, Flop 37%, Turn 80%)
      YohanN7 shows 6:diamond: 5:diamond: (Straight Flush, Eight High) (Pre 39%, Flop 63%, Turn 20%)
      YohanN7 wins 9.1 BB

      Yup, unusual (but it happens). Moreover, I failed to see what I was actually holding. Here's the second happening:

      PokerStars - $0.05/$0.10 (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Vasa143 (SB): 18.7 BB
      iivan775 (BB): 44.5 BB
      YohanN7 (UTG): 17.3 BB
      ninskymo13 (CO): 17.7 BB
      Piotrek510 (BTN): 68 BB

      Vasa143 posts SB 0.2 BB, iivan775 posts BB 0.5 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 0.7 BB) YohanN7 has 8:heart: A:club:

      YohanN7 raises to 1 BB, fold, Piotrek510 raises to 1.5 BB, fold, fold, YohanN7 calls 0.5 BB

      Flop: (3.7 BB, 2 players) 9:heart: T:heart: Q:heart:
      YohanN7 bets 0.5 BB, Piotrek510 raises to 1 BB, YohanN7 calls 0.5 BB

      Turn: (5.7 BB, 2 players) 5:heart:
      YohanN7 checks, Piotrek510 bets 1 BB, YohanN7 calls 1 BB

      River: (7.7 BB, 2 players) J:heart:
      YohanN7 checks, Piotrek510 bets 1 BB, YohanN7 raises to 2 BB, Piotrek510 raises to 3 BB, YohanN7 raises to 4 BB, Piotrek510 calls 1 BB

      YohanN7 shows 8:heart: A:club: (Straight Flush, Queen High) (Pre 57%, Flop 8%, Turn 0%)
      Piotrek510 shows K:heart: Q:spade: (Straight Flush, King High) (Pre 43%, Flop 92%, Turn 100%)
      Piotrek510 wins 15.3 BB

      This time, on the other hand, I did see what I was actually holding - well, by the river at least. On the flop, I had lost the action and accinentaly donked :facepalm: .

      Now, that's pretty unusual - within a couple of hours. But wait... The opponent? Yes indeed - the very same opponent. After the second one he rightly called me a fish :f_biggrin: . I bet he is telling stories tonight. It's on me!

      pay more attention to the tables your playing. Isn't that the lesson learned?

      Yes, that is exactly the problem. I'm constantly browsing web pages while playing.

      But you have to admit it's almost an impossible happening. Two SF within an hour, both grossly misplayed, both vs the same player (different sessions), and the second SF loses to a bigger one :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: ?

      Glad you are talking to me.

      yeah it is 1 to billion chance or more i guess for that to happen. quite funny to see yeah.

      browsing and doing other stuff even a cellphone disturbing is a bad thing. I personally minimize all my browsers. well im playing 8 tables so even if i wanted I couldn't get the time to chat or browsing. maybe you need to add a table or two more ?

      Two-tabling, 180 hands into the session. Brutal loss in big pot at one table versus maniac. His trips had a notch bigger kicker. The Poker Stars eminent system beep calls my attention to the other table:


      PokerStars - $0.05/$0.10 (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: 40.2 BB
      UTG: 17.2 BB
      CO: 23.7 BB
      Hero (BTN): 12 BB
      SB: 14 BB

      SB posts SB 0.2 BB, BB posts BB 0.5 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 0.7 BB) Hero has 2:heart: 3:heart:

      UTG calls 0.5 BB, fold, Hero raises to 1 BB, SB calls 0.8 BB, BB calls 0.5 BB, UTG calls 0.5 BB <- I never did that! (I think)

      Flop: (4 BB, 4 players) 5:club: 2:spade: K:diamond:
      SB bets 0.5 BB, fold, UTG calls 0.5 BB, Hero calls 0.5 BB <- Or that!

      (Now I hear the beep.)

      I look at the board and my hand in amazement. I had zero memory of how I got here. My mouse must have a mind of its own. Better fold quickly and end the session...

      Turn: (5.5 BB, 3 players) 2:diamond:
      SB bets 1 BB, UTG raises to 2 BB, snapfold, SB calls 1 BB

      ..., but probably not that quickly.

      River: (9.5 BB, 2 players) 3:club: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:
      SB bets 1 BB, UTG calls 1 BB

      SB shows A:spade: J:diamond: (One Pair, Twos) (Pre 60%, Flop 15%, Turn 7%)
      UTG shows T:spade: K:spade: (Two Pair, Kings and Twos) (Pre 40%, Flop 85%, Turn 93%)
      UTG wins 11.1 BB


      From now on: Max session length = 100 hands
