Deep in the tournament, our hero folds pocket 7s to a raise from Anette Lisa, and Hades050 wins the pot with a pair of 9s. Many players can literally never fold an ace.
A screengrab from a second stage freeroll qualifier played September 10, 2012.
The tournament is 22 minutes old, and someone already has a massive stack.
October 15, 2012: Going, going, almost gone, then a lucky river.
October 1, 2012: A screengrab from the same tournament as above; garbage wins again. Okay, it's a freeroll, but we are deep in the tournament, and many players play like this whatever the buy-in.
August 9, 2012: House on the river, uncalled.
September 17, 2012: Busted out with aces.
September 9, 2012: A flopped house in the William Hill Sunday Facebook Freeroll.
September 8, 2012: The very first hand of the tournament; a great flop for the pocket kings, but a terrible river.
July 26, 2008 on Absolute Poker. This was indeed a juicy freeroll; our hero finished 3rd.
October 25-6, 2012: As the man said: Four King Hell!
October 28, 2012: I stayed out of this one. 5-2 suited. What a player!
September 24, 2012: The joker with 6-2 raised pre-flop.
September 16, 2012: A cruel way to lose with a small pocket pair when the board pairs twice and the ace wins.
I think this is also from May 11, 2012. A flopped set holds up.
October 29, 2012: Calling a big pre-flop raise with Q3 suited, he was then all-in with a flush draw. And he made it!
May 16, 2012: All-in with garbage, he outflops big slick, but justice prevails.
This is the reason I don't like raising with a pocket pair smaller than kings. SISKOKIDD raised with his pocket 10s. Now what does he do when the player immediately behind him re-raises all in?
October 15, 2012: I cashed, after a fashion.
August 31, 2012: KQ suited loses to KQ suited. Ouch!
