Posted: 08:56 PM 13 Apr 06 Subject: YoYo HU Challenge - Victorious! :P
With a bit of time to kill before the big Lions/St.Kilda match, and prevented from going out due to Easter family committments tomorrow, I find myself challenging high quality Sydney 20/40 pro Jonno Macey to a HU match on Stars.

Armed with a bottle of duty-free Jagermeister and a bottle of Pernod as a sweet aniseed chaser, I roll my sleeves up, raise my chin and prepare for battle.

My first $50 is wiped out in about 4 min flat after the luckbox hits a two-outer on turn to fill up against my trips. At this stage, every IQ point I have is saying: "Get out now YoYo while you have the chance."

But the Pernod speaks to me: "You can take him YoYo!"

And take him I did - after a massive 45 min of HU Limit play, I finish up $34!!, and earn this massive compliment from one of the best Limit players in Australia: "You play good for someone who's supposed to be drunk!"

The YoYo Limit challenges have begun again - come one, come all! Boondy, if you catch this, stop avoiding my challenges and teach this young upstart a lesson :P

YoYo - 1 / Opponents - 0

yoyo

PS. Thanks to Macey for the game and for enduring my constant cries of "WEAK-TIGHT!" whenever he folded a hand :P

Rake-avoidance scheme, but it's not about the money anyway - if I wanted value, I'm sure not going to challenge one of the best Limit players in Australia to a HU match. I'd just sit down at a table with players such as yourself :P

The victorious army rolls on. The next peasant to be crushed was Gareth Gaz - who foolishly challenged me to a $50 match. Gaz and I have a long history of HU matches. He challenges me - I win. Or he hits a couple 3 outers and snags a victory here or there. He couldn't hit any 3-outers today and the match was over at the 80/160 level.

I knew I was in for an easy match after the 2nd hand of the entire tourney:

PokerStars Game #4611464781: Tournament #22981760, Hold'em Limit - Match Round I, Level I (10/20) - 2006/04/13 - 09:52:13 (ET)
Table '22981760 1' 2-max Seat #1 is the button
Seat 1: gzm69 (1515 in chips)
Seat 2: yoyojemjo (1485 in chips)
gzm69: posts small blind 5
yoyojemjo: posts big blind 10
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to yoyojemjo [As Js]
gzm69: raises 10 to 20
yoyojemjo: calls 10
*** FLOP *** [2s Tc Ad]
yoyojemjo: checks

Mr. Dimock, how are you Sir? Good I hope.

I shall have to bring out the big guns for you - *maybe* even play sober! Or, perhaps, play you even more drunk. I haven't decided yet.

Sorry Andrew, I had to run off to Easter family responsibilities this morning - not running scared :P

Grab me on MSN sometime for a game.

Brian, this challenge is just Limit HE - but add me to MSN ([email protected]) and I'll give you another game of your choice after. But only Limit HE counts for my mock gloating thread please :P

LOL Nick is the luckiest man on Earth - I've just spent ten minutes trying to persuade him to buy a lottery ticket.

This screenshot of MSN chat says it all - he even admits it - credit to the man, he has class! :P

LOL Nick outplayed me - but he did get uber-lucky! :P

Peep grab me on MSN - [email protected]

I'm back to winning ways with a sexy win over young gun Jethro Horowitz - over by 50/100 level - if I had 1/3 of the cards I had against Jethro against Nick, I would be 4 and 0. Ah well :P

YoYo - 3 / Opponents - 1
