2.5k hands played, up HKD16.5k against Jay

With 2,467 hands to go, I’m up HKD16.5k against Jay Gonzalez. So far, we’ve played a total of 5 sessions (overall 10.9 hours) of HU NLHE, alternating between 1-tabling and 2-tabling.

That gives me an average of 6.6BB/100 hands, a decent figure considering I lost HKD5k during the second session. Unfortunately, I cannot show many interesting hands (to say the least) we played because there is a problem with posting sessions on weak-tight.com.

Jay has headed to vegas to recuperate his losses. I’ll keep this blog updated when he’s back.

Against a normal opponent, over-shoving over a raise on that board with KK with no club would seem rather foolish, but Jay is no ordinary opponent. So I guess he had to put me on a crazy draw with ace of clubs, or perhaps a straight and a flush draw, to call my shove with 2nd pair with no redraw (against which he would be just about flipping with).
