On Monday, Tony G blogged about an insane cash game at Kings Club in Prague, Czech Republic. According to himself, he lost about €500,000 in a €2k/€4k cash game the first day. The same day as that cash game took place he also played a €10,000 High Roller (rebuy) event, but he decided to skip Day 2 and let his average stack get blinded off.

After 1-2 days of relaxing with his girlfriend, Tony G decided to hit the cash game tables again and try his luck. He sat down and played heads-up with a person he referred to as 'Leon'.

"On my last day at Kings Club I jumped back in the game with Leon. I was down another 1M almost before my butt hit the chair - that's how it felt anyway. I got the stakes jacked up to 5K-10K and the game was crazy. The last few minutes of the game ran out like a scene in a movie. I was down 1.5M total and with the driver waiting to take me to the airport, I had 20 minutes to make or break myself with cards and chips flying through the air.

In the final hand I held A-A and we got it all in pre flop for a 1.85M pot. It was a sick comeback. I ended up 300K winner for the trip," Tony G wrote in his blog.

Writing on his blog, Tony admitted that despite playing like a "donkey", he managed to finish his 72 hour session in profit by more than €300,000.
Having dropped €500,000 to Leon during the first half of their battle, Tony's decision to up the blinds to €5k/€10k proved a wise one

Wow, what another great day to remember for Tony G.. And unfortunately it looks like this story hasn’t much in common with lots of others we read here. But I can see one thing in common: although he played a big hand for a big pot, it turned out to be not as good as it could represent because he was already losing a lot money, and that huge pot only passed his bankroll to the positive side on a couple of bucks (€300k may be a lot of money, but not that much when we know there were €1.85M on the pot)! Why does it always have to be that way?

just the fact he let his average stack just bind out in the HIGH ROLLER tells me Mr G is losing his heart and commitment for the game.
