Cherry on Top!

Okay..I'm still excited. In case you didn't read the HUC3 post, let me tell you why. Veneno gets to take Iggy's HU cherry! Now for a girl who just loves Heads Up this is very sweet news. Am I drowling?..yes..

And I know someone asked me to go easy on Iggy cause it's his first time. But Veneno doesn't do easy. I can assure you, he will enjoy it anyway...

And, I still need to reschedule a little one on one with the Drunken Retard. Although I'm concerned he might be better prepared after a weekend with the Playmates.

The really cool thing about organizing the HUC3 is that I'm getting lots of HU offers. And don't think for a minute that I'm not eatting it up.

A few of the HUC3 Competitors have made it unto the Veneno HU chart. Some have discovered why I am the Poison, others have been able to counter my powers, and some have figured out that I might just know a thing or two about the game. Sorry I haven't posted about all my matches. Just take a look at my growing HU chart if you wanna see who has met with the Poison.

Tonight Hoyazo had his opportunity to meet with the Poison. Unfortunately for him, he tried to outplay the me. He slow played his 88 by limping in preflop. I raised to 60 (bb was 20). He then raised to 240, at which time I went all-in with my KK. And that was the end of it. What helped in this match was that a few hands earlier, when I bet 60, he raised to 240, and I folded. It is very helpful in HU to establish patterns, so that you can use them later to your advantage. This time it worked out perfectly. It was a good match Hoyazo! Thanks for the invitation.

So if you haven't made it on the Veneno HU Chart, what are you waiting for? Just let me know you are interested and it can be arranged.

Oh boy..I finally read Flux's recent posting. He gives you a full history of one of our matches. So if you want some insight into my game. Check it out. Let me know what you think.

Count me among the recent losers. Hopefully that will change with a rematch soon.

Did you update my stats? I can't believe I am only up 9 to 5! I want another go at the poison. I think I'm becoming immune.

Veneno said...

lmao..Would you believe there was a time when I would have to chase guys down for a HU game?

Now you guys are coming to me...

TOTALLY SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Veneno, first let me congratulate you for beating me for the second time last night.

Secondly, I want to say, for the record, that you have been not just a little lucky, but extremely incredibly lucky in both of our hu matches together. Neither match has lasted more than five hands, and in both cases, one of the first few hands dealt to us involved me being dealt a middle pocket pair, and you just *happening* to be be dealt a higher pocket pair at the same time. In both cases I "maneuvered" you into pushing against me, and in both cases I ended up being dominated and losing.

You can't possibly keep luckboxing like this forever against me, Veneno. Can't wait till you're ready to come get your whuppin from me like a woman in a rematch, where hopefully we'll get to play some REAL poker instead of these silly early setups where I am destined to push with worse cards than you. You know where to find me, just let me know when you want it. :)

Hoyazo..

You got me laughing!

I think it is cute that you "lured" me in with pocket fives by pushing all-in. And when I called with tens, I was the luckbox.

Are fives really a middle pair?

I would love to play again.

See ya soon
