Whats going on guys, still need to write my SNE prop bet wrap up blog but I have alot of things to write/say about the few month long grind so want to make sure I'm in the writing mindset. This month has been incredibly well and I think pokerstars is rewarding me for playing 450k plo hands in December with this ridiculous run good at high stakes to start the year including my biggest pot ever won
Obv Rafe was the spot in this game and the only reason I was playing so high, he wasn't 3betting that much preflop and after he potted I was moreso praying it wasn't AAxx with nut flush draw but when he tanked for like 20 seconds I was like holy crap I might actually have the best hand with bottom pair, and I was an 80 percent fave for a 39k pot, heart sure was pumping on the turn when he picked up a bit more outs but on the river it was going crazy, like holyyyyyyyyy !!!!!!!
This is how my graph is looking since I moved back into my 2nd canada place where the run good officially lives, almost made it to +100k but not quite there yet
Pokerstars hosted a dinner for some Vancouver supernova's the other night that I attended and had a great time. This is my second get together organized by Pokerstars that I have attended. The first was on Thanksgiving for the USA relocatees that was great, it kinda sucked having to be in Canada and grinding on Thanksgiving so this was a great moral booster for myself and just another reason why Stars is amazing to its plyers, I got to meet some lp'ers who I've only known online and got to meet the Canada Rep for this part of the world for Pokerstars, Rich and his wife. The dinner the other night here at HY steakhouse was for Canadian supernovas but luckily me and my friend Matt (rivrmeadream) got an invite and got to meet some more pretty cool guys from the area. Had a chance to meet a guy I've grinded a ton of PLO with and he was the only one brave enough to go out with us afterwards, prob can't blog that story. Rich gave away a few pairs of hockey tickets through 8 way PLO flips and obv I binked the first one for my hometowm Blackhawks vs Canucks, everyone was happy for me of course. Of course we ordered a ton of appetizers, double drinks and deserts as the night was on Pokerstars and everyone figured we could all use some more rakeback. I know not everyone is happy with the changes made this year to the VPP system but I have tried turn the negative into a positive for me personally and figured out a way to maximize my rakeback and try to improve my winrate. Previously it was very profitable to nit it up while 24 tabling with the mentality that I could breakeven while earning 120k but now that is not the case, in deciding to take a different approach and open up my game a ton while playing in better games higher stakes I have been able to make as much money in the first few weeks of the year then I might be able to make the whole year with 24 tabling + SNE.
I made a video at the stars dinner so you guys can see what a real life pokerstars employee looks like and some other poker players look like, lighting kinda meh
