Opponent: kurokitty, are you male or female?
Kurokitty: male (sorry)
Opponent: Good. Because I would hate to get beaten by a woman.
-$20+2 SNG, PokerStars
So I played five more SNGs at the same time last night, getting heads-up in four of those and winning two of them. All while fielding IMs from Kelley, who was saying 'What are you doing?'
Girls are so neg-EV. Just kidding.
I liked the fast air traffic control-pace. I wasn't able to focus and worry a lot about particular tables or hands, so I just made a bet and ran with it. One time, I reraised a guy all-in by betting 7000. LOL. I meant 700! He quickly folded.
One table I was down to 1,000 chips and the other guy had an 11K advantage. I turned the tables on him but lost in the end.
It's amazing to me how impatient people are in their heads-up play. They'll go all-in with a good hand and want you to follow, just to get it over with. Or call you just the same.
No, thanks. When I get my chips all-in it'll be for a good reason.
Twice I broke the back of people who finally waited for KK to raise pre-flop. I called them all-in with A3 and A4 respectively and flopped aces both times.
Anyway, the experiment continues to be profitable (13 cashes of 23 SNGs, 5 1sts and 6 2nds). Yay!
