      1035 hands, ~23% BR upswing ($340-> $420) kgo!

      At peak at 550 hands the BR was actually $430 before a euphoria-shove cost me a NL20 stack. Oh well. Worked back a touch of that grinding out NL10 to work on gameplay for the rest of the night.

      Some fun hands -

      Hero wins with four of a kind, threes (3s 3c)

      Oh baby. I was actually disappointed when UTG pushed UTG2 out of the hand; I think UTG2 would have called the second minraise and may have been drawing at a not-nut 4boarder, possibly AoQd.

      So I euphoria-shoved after putting villain on a flush draw, possibly a combo draw. Oh well. This is why playing with Elephant saying "+$84" after 90 minutes is dangerous.

      I've seen some of your hands and not only in this thread, and tbh some of your crazy plays would seem to work well for SH :D Have you ever given SH a go?

      I played SH on NL10 for maybe 2-3 hours and ended up about a stack and a half, but the variability was scaring me, my elephant chart was like a rollercoaster.

      I might give it another go soon though :)
