What are the ODDS of this?
What are the ODDS
of this? Talk about good side of variance???
Last week I watched the final table play out on ipoker network (the Sun $200K guar., a $215 buyin, ~1,000 runners in it). There's one guy on the table & it's his very first Tournament played on ipoker (Zero SNG's, Zero HU Sng.. & Zero hands of cash games). He ends up taking 3rd for $16k.
Pretty decent huh. A bit odd.... but not crazy odd.
So this week I open up final table of ipoker's $200Kguar., it's HeadsUP & who do I see?? Same guy!!!! I figure he must've played a handful of tourneys since last week... Nope! This is his 2nd Game played on ipoker... & now he's HeadsUp in it, LOL.
Now that's a tad unusual. So I think, "maybe he's a HSMTT reg. from the US & has just opened up an ipoker account? Curious now I look him up on PTR & he's '0' on there (no.. not zero hands played... 0 as in a rating of ZERO ->> under 500hands played -15.58bb/100, playing .05./.10PLO sh, & a few hundred hands of 100nlHU... down a few hundred).
Oh damn. Poor guy. He just went out in 2nd (99 < TT aipf). $22,000 Not too bad for 2nd tourney.
I'd say this is a fair bit more odd than a guy with 150 games played, avg buyin $1.48, going deep in the $5k WCOOP MainEvent (which was pretty weird too... but not this crazy).
