      Hi, I recently started playing online poker again trying to re-build my bankroll from money I already had(about $500) which I wasn't using at PokerStars.

      I'm sure that everyone on PokerStars plays the card match gig for little cash but in 67K hands over the last 10 days I have never won more than $2 at a time. So, that's what it takes to win $10 on that thing!!

      Today was Sunday for me and I played poker all day and boy it was rough! I took a swing down to -$234 and then fought my way back to -$35.63 over 10k hands at Zoom 25M... My poker bankroll re-build is going OK. I'm saving all my Stars coins for rainy day to convert into cash if needed.

      Anyway, I just got this PokerStars mods called "HM Classic Theme" from pokergrahics and It includes card mods in the package deal. I just tried it out today and it was much easier on the eyes than the stock themes which allowed me to play longer and to see better so I highly recommend this mods in case you wanna chase loss all day long like I did.

      Yay, I won another $10 one!! I was listening this time. The sound effect was cool. And to top if off, right about the same time this hand happened on the table below the card match.

      Thanks!!

      Yeah, all three hands are so strong on flop. They both had one out on river even after the turn pairing. Unbelievable cooler really.

      I have been running terribad lately... I got my $500 BR to $1350 and then lost $400 in three days or something....

      Anyway, on the lighter note, I flopped the royal today. I didn't get paid but it was still cool.

      Hitting the royal flush is always nice, but tough to get paid :f_thumbsup:

      Very good a Royal plus the 10 bucks , I have only seen someone else get a Royal at a table I played at, nor have I had a Str Flush I have seen others get one. I am sure it put you in a good mood for a week at least.

      This hand was funny. I glanced at the table and I knew I wanted to play QJs vs the loose player
      on CO only he took his time opening and I ended up calling his open/shove by accident.
      This rarely ever happens but it happens when you are using the Hotkeys on Stars playing
      four or more tables of Zoom.

      This is even for a LAG weird to play 83s after a 3bet I think. This hand needs to hit a flush or 2 pair to have a good chance to win.

      I run bad tonight. I played 2.3k hands and was in hole the whole time.
      Until this maniac came and saved me. I finished the session with +80BB.... phew

      edit: Let me explain why I shoved on flop with the virtual nuts. A maniac like this needs a carrot to chase, so you have to put the food in front of his eyes for him to start salivating.
