Retarded “no blind increases” heads-up sng

While playing heads up sit and go’s I accidentally joined one of pokerstars new ‘no blind increases’ versions. What a mistake that was. They basically give you 1500 chips each, set the blinds at 15/30 and force you to play until someone loses their stack.I think this is เเทงหวยออนไลน์ response to everyone asking for heads up NL poker tables. It’s not the same though. The problem is that you can’t just play a few hands and then leave the table. You’re locked in until someone has all the chips. So if you sit in one of these there’s no estimating how long it can take.

It’s been almost 45 minutes and I’m still playing this $50 no blind increase sit and go. I’m at 1900 chips (i’ve been wavering between 1500 and 2000 the entire game). I tried offering a chop, but he hasn’t replied.

So if you read this post, don’t make the same mistake I did. Avoid the no blind increase sit and gos, because if you get stuck with another solid player, it will kill your earn rate.

I was watching 200/400nl heads up match at Full Tilt Poker between Phil Ivey and Sbrugby. I wasn’t closely watching the game, but it seemed pretty normal until this hand…

sbrugby: best misclick ever

Phil ivey immediately closed out of all his tables afterwards.

The summary:

sbrugby misclicks and makes the pot $30,800 preflop.

Phil Ivey raises him $135,000, more then enough to put him all in.

sbrugbly makes a crying call because of pot odds and puts the rest of his $82,000 stack in.

Phil ivey only had K9os?!

sbruggby wins the $164,000 pot with K9.

I can’t imagine what phil Ivey was thinking during this hand. Even if he puts sbrugby on a misclick, he only has King high, and sbrugby had 40% of his stack committed.
