Blog post published on Monday, February 10, 2014, written by The Prince of Freerolls.
I risked most of the money I had scraped together through Freerolls on a heads-up sit-and-go. Both of us put in 25¢ each, and the 50¢ goes to the winner. I was playing against a guy called Jolep. He was from Russia, and I hoped he loved Mint Julep's as much as I did. Me and him could connect over that, talk about Julep's vs Mojito's, and it'd be a fun game.And then it wasn't. And then i[...]   Read more » Blocking the Hail Mary

This type of game is getting more frequent on min stakes tables because players dont care about losing. I hate this type of game and would prefer a nice 6 max table and play properly

yea happens all the time lately, esp on stars. just had a guy shove on my 3bet in zoom, with TT and he hit four of a kind so my kings were, well crap Tongue

i think i have lost like 90/100 times with KK now

its like they watch you lose badly and like 5 hands later you get AKs and ur like hell yea, you also hit a Axx rainbow flop and ur like awesome lets see if he calls. and he does, and you raise turn too and he calls again. and then a 'safe' 8 rivers the board, so you bet again. and he calls

and then he shows his A8o

I have to agree with doubletop here, on this limit it's not too profitable to play heads up.

My personal advice would be to play multi-table sng or cash games if you have a bit of experience on cash. Keep us posted with your evolution mate!

Am I really red a blog on a heads up game cost twenty friggin five cents? Are you really was in shock when it turned out no sane person plays heads up games as some random sng or mtt? Im not sure the prince trolling here or hes never read another poker forum beside this one in his entire life, but as funny as these wanderings in micro stakes could be, the amount of energy he worked into this blog entires he could wander around some chart where it states which hands are good to start raising or shove in a heads up game, and boom, all of his problems have solved way before he started developing them.

Either you missed a bit of your luck at the cards you were getting against him or you were playing more scared than you should. You say he was entering all-in every hand that you raised that he didn't fold... and you didn't had any good high cards in any of those moments? The best way to fight them is not giving up until you show him you can win too. But sometimes things aren't on our side and the best thing to do is just close that table and find some other guy to play against with.

Interesting blog I have to say, made even mor interesting (really?) by th fact it was a 25c game where the grand winning total was 50c. Makes you realise that anyone can write anything about anything and loads of people will read it!
