This is my first real post on this site other then my introduction last week. I played Poker Star’s nightly $3.30 buy-in and unlimited re-buys until the first break which has a guaranteed $30,000 prize pool. As usual there was one player who went all in on the first hand, he had J-2. He received one caller who lost because he called with rags. The player who raised with J-2 made a comment about the player’s bad call; he seemed oblivious that most decent players don’t bet $3000 with J-2 off suit. The next hand the same player went all in again, and again he won. This player kept going all in and wining until he built his stack to $12,000. Soon into the game I caught KK and sure enough Mr. all-in made his move, which of course I called and won, doubling up. Mr. allin again on the next had went all in and I called with JJ and flopped a full house (happiness is flopping a full house) so I doubled up again yet again. Mr. allin went broke so he made a re-buy and on the first hand he of course went all in, which he lost to another JJ. To make a long story less long Mr. allin went all in over and over again through the entire re-buy period loosing every time, but every time he would quickly re-buy and would promptly lose it all. It was like watching a train wreck. By first break the entire table’s chip stacks ranged from $14,000 to about $25,000. I have never seen anybody play like that before and I hope I run into him again, because it helped me to build a deep stack early allowing me to last deep into the tournament. Normally I bust out either just before or right after the money, but last night I made it to the top 100 before getting my KKs busted by a flush who should have folded after the flop, but he was willing to bet almost $50,000 on the hopes that a heart would hit the turn or the river, which of course it did knocking me out and doubling him up putting him in great position to win the whole thing (I should have watched to see how he did). The whole while I keep thinking about this fool who spent I don’t know how much money re-buying and how he was so critical of the player who called his all in bet with rags even though he had sh#t himself. Sorry about the long post, but has anybody experienced anything like this? I know I probably never will again.
