Running Hot, stupid push and Beating a World Champion
OK. Firstly I am sorry for the boasting ( well not really ). Secondly I do not suggest that anyone else pulls this type of move.
Thirdly - How often do you get the chance to beat a world champion? Can you do it in Golf - No. Tennis - No....Poker - its possible. I Just done it.
I have been running hot recently. very Hot. Here is an example of the type of thing that has been happening
Anyway in the last week, and before this hand, my Bankroll has gone up circa $5K. Things were looking good.
I made $1500 this morning playing 2/4, 3/6 and was about to log off when I saw Joe Hachem Playing at the 25/50 tables at Poker stars. Now I know that this is well above my limit, I know I should not play, However I lose discipline and decided that hey - why not buy in short stack and see a round or two with the ex world champ.
Anyhow thats what I did and this is what happened.

a) It was a crap push.
b) So I got lucky.
c) Theres nothing clever about playing above your bankroll and making rubbish short stack pushes........ BUT
d) I beat a world champ !!!!!
Now, I am going to run. I fear that my "God Mode" button is about to be Turned off. time to cash out the winnings and store in the bank !!!!
No more poker over the weekend and then back to sensible levels next week.
