I felt like I had no clue what I was doing. It was probably obvious as well.

The play where I beat you (The AQ that I showed) was only possible because you made a move that I expected because I would have done the same thing.

If you had no idea what you were doing, I wouldn't have been able to pick that one off.

Nah dawg, you missed my declaration that I'm the best 22er in the world.

I had lost 3 $5.50 HU matches in a row today. I was up against lorinda, who's shown in his posts that he has a deeper understanding of pokwer than me. In this particular situation, I badly needed confidence. Poker is situational, ya know [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
