      I have to admit tho everest is DONK central i hate the software the game choice is limited there arent nowhere near the amount of games or players as there are on ft or pokerstars w/e but gotta say that its the fishiest place ive ever played, for example when i first downloaded the software i won about 9 HU games in a row and came in well ITM in the only 2 MTT's i entered

      I think you need to take some more time to read through the articles on offer here... There are some serious issues with your bet sizing.

      Rough luck tho dude...Keep getting your money in good and it will all even out in the end :)

      i min raise because he was super agressive didnt want to scare him off from reraising me ;) and about the other hand i already said i know it was a poor play, the guy was calling anything with anything so i thought id risk it nvm eh id also like to point out my win ratio is far higher than my losses

      i hear what you are saying .... Player specific....

      ... Against players this weak i like to small ball and take them down slow n steady...

      You sound reasonably confident ... So take it slow.. chip them down and hope you hand holds against his small stack...

      The longer the match lasts the more hands you play and the more chances to exploit the edge you believe you have :)

      Its your game buddy play how you like... My 2 cents and best of luck at the tables :)

      +1. After downloading I tried some of the 1$ DONS, to have a look at the software. quite interestingly, we didn't make it to the push/fold phase in 2 out of 3 games, and in all games I more than tripled my stack(after doubling up, only limping some pairs and playing some monsters). after winning the first 4 games with ease, I decided to have a look on how many games in a row I can win^^ well, I made it to 5, after my 3 aces got cracked by a full house. point is: no matter how stupid the enemy, you can't always win^^ out of 11 games I already lost 3, even though I think I've got a good edge on them:D (why such a small sample size? well they last more than 1 hour, and its only 1$, so really low win/h, so I only play if nothing else opens)
