      Well I'm kinda shaking right now, after an unbelievable 12.5h session. It was crazy, longest I've played ever, by far. Why did I play 12h? I don't know, I just couldn't stop. I had some great positions but the cards just weren't going my way, so I decided to play some more, and more, and more.

      I finally ended the session when I had my biggest opponent where I wanted and took all of his chips.

      BTW it's also my biggest pot ever played.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      $0.5/$1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $101.00
      SB:
      $123.70
      BB:
      $366.63
      MP3(Hero):
      $713.31
      CO:
      $141.67

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, A.
      Hero raises to $4, 3 folds, BB raises to $15, Hero raises to $60, BB raises to $366.63(All-In), Hero calls $306.63.

      Flop: ($733.76) T, 6, 4 (2 players)

      Turn: ($733.76) 8 (2 players)

      River: ($733.76) Q (2 players)

      Final Pot: $733.76.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of aces (A A)
      BB shows (A K)
      Hero wins with a pair of aces (A A).

      and here is the session graph



      I hope you guys don't resent me for bragging a bit, but I was really excited and wanted to share it with someone.

      Nice hand man.

      I don't really get it though. The cards weren't going your way but you were up about 600bb's?

      Actually had about 300BB most of the time on that table, before two quite fortunate hands when I doubled to 660$ and this one where I managed to pick up aces against this crazy uber aggressive opponent but I spent about 500$ on that table losing set twice, and such. I was really getting sucked out a lot.

      also tnx everyone

      dude 12.5 hours and only 3.x k hands? I reach that amount of hands in 2-3 hours, so that means you play 2-4 tables :)

      well, when you playing with such money, you dont really want to play 10 tables :) ) and there loads of decisions to make when you have that stack, keeping track of players you playing is quite important too :P

      Good job man! Not only in that hand but in the whole session. Most ppl have a hard time dealing with a few early bad beats and just lose track of things. I think u can be just as proud on the effort u put in as on that pot. I'd hate to see u at a table nearby, hard to play against player that are unmoved by previus action. Well done, big congrats!

      yeah I played 2-3, mostly 4 tables, because when I play 9 tables I play too tight like 16/11 or such, and can't make too many moves at pots. By playing only 4 I can play more aggressively and make some reads I wouldn't make playing more tables.

      There's a point in your game when you have to reduce the number of tables in order to optimize your play.
