Playing a reg HU

After two serious columns, I want to make a post that is rather enjoyable, less serious.

Yesterday two interesting things happened to me in LHE (and of course the coaching with CeeGee was awesome too, but more on that later): I played 8/16 for the first time, well, 20 hands at least, so I’m running now at an awesome 39BB/100. The second thing: I sat on a reg HU.

Honestly, I’ve never done that before, but I know this particular reg very well, I’m quite aware of his… khmm… strategy, and also he was playing shitloads of tables, so I definitely felt edge over him. I don’t want to name the guy, cause of mutual respect and because if I’d be in his spot, I wouldn’t want my name to go public as well, but I think if you know him, you’ll recognize him by the hands. I made some really awesome adjustments against him, and ended up playing really weird/non-standard, it was a good experience, and hell, it was worth it financially too. So let’s see the hands, without commentary:

Actually, without commentary, these hands are quite funny, but they all made sense in the actual context. What can I say, I love HULHE.
