I defeated GiantFan666 in a PL Hold Em $5 Heads-Up SNG.

We both started with 1500, and within a few hands I was down to 1200. After that, I won like 20/22 hands. Not by any thread of skill, but mainly by luck.

Tournament history:

PokerStars Tournament #8442146, Pot Limit Hold'em
Buy-In: $5.00/$0.25
2 players
Total Prize Pool: $10.00
Tournament started - 2005/05/30 - 01:43:26 (ET)

1: joe32543 (Lincolnville), $10.00 (100%)
2: Giantfan666 (Omaha),

You finished in 1st place (eliminated at hand #1795375781).

26 hands played and saw flop:
- 10 times out of 13 while in small blind (76%)
- 12 times out of 13 while in big blind (92%)
- 0 times out of 0 in other positions (0%)
- a total of 22 times out of 26 (84%)

Pots won at showdown - 14 out of 18 (77%)
Pots won without showdown - 3




Final Hand:

Would like to add that tournaments are best played on Pokerstars rather than Party. Me and wrveres started out on Party $25NL at a private table I created, but at .10 rake for every $1 in the pot, it became pretty expensive for the both of us to not win any money from each other. Not saying that you have to play at Stars, just giving you a warning on the potential costs.

BB02 - you were really lucky to hit that river.

I'll open an account at Pokerstars now and track down my first round fish... I mean opponent.

Mookaluh tried to steal it again but I was on a club flush and called, and my ace high held up.

Good match it was exactly 50 hands long of which I was mostly in control. Can't wait for week 2 when I flatten my next opponent. ;-D

ahem...forgot to mention the three rivers that he hit in the early going to take an early lead.

but I'm mostly to fault for slow playing too much. The first hand he put up I had two pair and slow played until he his his str8. Oh well. Perlick's pretty good so watch out everyone.
