Rejoicing in 2/4!!

What can I say? Massive heater playing 2/4, aided by a few fish on Lucky Ace Poker (a Pacific skin). I must have shot up by 40BB in half an hour. That is the business.

Of course I broke my rules again, and played two 2/4 tables. But I had the HUD on, and both tables looked fishy.

Here is a big hand:

Incidentally, I joined Lucky Ace to get the free Idleminer hand grabbers. I'll also do the 25%/$100 bonus which is on the same conditions as the Pacific bonus (credits instantly, 20x play through to cash) - I've mostly finished that requirement already.

So the heater kept getting hotter for a while, but eventually cooled. I had an overpair AA busted by a rivered flush, an overpair JJ busted by a rivered trips, and KK busted by a paired ace on the flop.

Even so, I am up about $250 just today and nearly finished the $100 bonus.

what did that guy actually have in the end, a 3? or doesnt that site show give hole cards of callers?

The blindman said...

Sadly it doesn't show the hole cards.

He was a big fish, very loose preflop, so a 3 was certainly a possibility. He's an idiot to cap the river with a 3, but surely he wouldn't cap it with worse than that?

parttimebonuschaser said...

true .. he mighta had worse though if he was that terrible. you still get huge fish at $2/4. always good to find them.

i've taken to always bet/raising the river if I have the nuts (or near as to it) these days, even if I think it will be a split pot. its unbelievable what some people show down.

hey mate, whats the handgrabber software like for pacific? does it work perfectly? i am thinking about doing the offer that gets you that plus the bodog handgrabber as well as idleminer stuff.


parttimebonuschaser said...

oh and do u get the licence straight away or do you need to playthrough first?

The blindman said...

Hey Bort,

Yes, I did the deal for all 6 packages by signing up at LuckyAce. You get the software straight away (few days delay). You also get the standard 25% $100 bonus, which is worth playing.

The Pacific handgrabber is ok, but not perfectly reliable (use the BETA version). You can get a free trial to try it. The OnGame grabber is very reliable I think. I'd also like to try the Party and Tilt miners which work unsupervised I believe.

cheers mate. I might end up doin the rakeaway deal for luckyace instead and just paying for the 2 licenses that i want outright.

i dont think i'll use the miner parts.

pity they're not 100% reliable though. will get the trial version first i think to give it a go.
