Booking a Skillz win

I'll post some Stud 8 hands for analysis later, but for now I'll just post this happy image:

[Edit: HHs now posted below]

And yes, I suffered a couple of coolers, suffered some bad beats, and lucked into a key pot late to overcome getting short-stacked at the final table.

Here are a few interesting hands. Several involve mistakes on my part to extract maximum value, one involves me playing too fast, and one is one of two suckouts I accumulated to stay alive when I was desperately short-stacked.

--Your standard cooler. LJ gets an improbable full house on 6th and I brick out for low and can't manage to find a full house redraw once my flush draw is dead. I should have slowed way down on 6th; that was a real brain cramp on my part which cost me three bets.

don't think she could have full house yet

Grossest hand of tournament to me is the one time I was rolled up it was deuces, I slowplayed you and your 1st 3 door cards were 9 9 9

i don't profess to do anything other than suck at stud hi/lo, but two things:

1) my "miracle 2 pair" happened on 5th not 7th, and you are most certainly not showing better

2) how is my full house "improbable" exactly?

1) Even if you had 2 pair on 5th (I guess I misread the HH, mea culpa), I think I'm favoured to win, and my board *is* pretty threatening to 2 raggedy pair, but I'll have to go run the numbers to examine the pot equities.

2) I put you on trip queens on 5th, but I'm not going anywhere with my hand. I screwed up badly on 6th, where I should have check-called one bet in hopes of drawing to a chop with a qualifying low or an improbable K for a better full house.

Bayne, please e-mail me that HH with the 999 door cards.

Thanks for the HH's. Now I have to change my post. I got the wrong K-K burried as my final hand.

Damn inaccuracies! ;o)

Nice job PL. I didnt even bother to write a S8 post because I played horrible all night. Karma came back to haunt me near my end.
