    jimmyd1953 wins carbon poker 200$ freeroll 01/05/11

    helo for the first time here, bit of a brag that i won the carbon freeroll with 4300 entrants. first off i always try to place in the money first, so when i reached 96 k in chips with 252 entrants left i started to slow pay the clock. i always slow play the clock more than ANYONE else ive ever seen. once i insured 24th place, i was in 22nd place at the time, i started to steal blinds, every time from middle position to button if all have folded and i had any ace , 9 plus 10or up or any pair ishoved allin. never got called except the 3 times i got qs, twice aces, once kings and once on ak. i won them all except 1 of the qs to an allin bb that had less than the bb for all in. i folded pocket 8s once against an allin that so happened to have aces , an aq called him, and i would have won if i would have made the BAD call, nevertheless my cards were incredible didnt get bad beats or did i suck out , i was always allin with the best hand before the river. it got down to two , i had about 2.2 mil in chips , my opponet had 1.1 mil , bbs ay 50 100 k which is the final limit and we only played afew hands and he got ace 4 shoved allin, i had pocket 8s with still a mil in chips if i lose, what would u do? i called and the 8s held up he did not hit a pair. i think he made a bad play i would have clled or raised 1 bb with a 4. thats my 2nd win at carbo poker the other was omaha high. i only started playing poker again almost 2 years ago. played a lot when i was 17 to 25 yrs old. my dad has made over a million dollars in prfits in poker but has a sporte betting addiction that has him broke at 80 yrs old. i was really good at 6 stud heads up in the 70s. i also have 3 2nds in badugi at carbon. i slowly have built up my monthly average to 250 a month profit now playing 40 freerolls aday and 1 or 2 (1 -2 dollar) ts ady, biggest wins r 260, 220 and 140. i have 16 poker sites on my desktop and play 7 sites aday . i have seen more bad beats than u can imagine. the worst one is in a 109 entry t that i won a freeroll sattelite to get in. i have pocket 6s position before me raise 3 or 4 bbs. ihave already tripled my stack. he raises , icall knowing he has a big pair and will only play the hand if i hit a set. the flop comes 6 , 2 9 rainbow. he raises having pocket aces , i push allin with a set , he snap calls. u guessed it an ace comes on the turn. im in top 5 if iwin that hand. big prize money all gone ,nada. thats the worst cause the prizes were big. see u again at the tables.
