I played the 1$ nightly the other day. I have to say while the result was not what I wanted it was BY FAR the most fun I have EVER had playing poker. Early on I was able to accumulate a big stack. I was then able to run that stack up to the point where I had a 600k to 200k lead in chips. For a HUGE part of the game I was like a 300K stack with everyone at my table being 10K-30K stacks. So I decided to play an aggressive game. I called a ton of jams. I played a ton of hands. I raised almost every hand. People would jam into me. You know what? I was winning like a motherfucker. It was the most fun ever. I mean QT flop comes AJ9.. So I call an all in jam by trip Aces.. because I can. River is a 8. Hands like 35o cracking queens. Riggs was shaking his head so much that he hurt his neck. I won something like 8 hands in a row before losing one. After each hand I was like "Nobody believes me I tell them not to play against me. They do not listen". I then get jammed by someone else. Bust them. Repeat my mantra.
I have to say if you have never abused a HUGE chip stack then your missing out. It was the most fun ever. I ended up losing in the end. Wound up like 160th despite my huge lead. Totally fun though. My last two hands I may have overplayed a bit. I had a BB hand where I had the SB covered. He raised 3xBB, I jammed, and of course he called with A7. My final hand everyone limped. I had A5. Flop comes Axx. I jam it all in again. With a big stack. I get called after some thought by AJ. Turn 5. River J! UG!
One thing that annoyed me about the game was certain bloggers chatting "Hey he is going to blow it". I understand ribbing me and I know nothing was meant by it but it kind of disappointed me. I actually turned observer chat off. I think when someone is playing for a 1500 prize negativity is just wrong. In a Blogger game it is alright to cheer for your guy but we need to stand together against the donks.
Hopefully I can get on a good run tomorrow night.
