welcome back, gentle reader.
right lets get this show on the road.
First off, the rTr HU QF 1 ... and thanks to YP for sitting out for 15 mins waiting for me. My pc refused to boot up and sat on the bios screen looking for me to hit F1 or F2 ... no luck there, as it refused point blank to accept anything typed on my usual wireless keyboard ... queue much swearing and a trip into the attic looking for an old wired keyboard ... remember children, always take a torch into the attic ... finally found a torch and an old keyboard ... bingo ! off to 'stars we go and the noble YP is sitting out ... nice one mate !
short story shorter ... I won
oh ok, just a quick resume ...
JJ v 99 ... yp raised to 120 pre-flop and i call
i bet out 120 on a scary QAT board ... yp folds ... nice laydown
we both limp to see a K22 flop and both check to see another 2 on the turn
yp calls my turn and river bet
and takes a nice 500 pot with his damned ace kicker
he now leads t1045 to t1955 ... not looking good
and it got worse ... t895 v t2105
then we both limp to see a 5 8 3 flop
yp bets 100 i raise to 300 yp calls
the turn is a K ... yp pushes for 550 ... i only got t545 left
if i lay it down i'm outchipped 5:1 ... sorry, gotta call
yikes the river is another 3 ...

ResdentEvil collected 1790 from pot
whew ... bak in the lead t1790 v t1210
i then proceeded to call a pre-flop raise with the mighty K9o ...... wtf ???
Qc4c2d on the flop and YP pushes for his remaining 860 ... oops
and i lay it down
back to square 1 almost my t1540 v t1460

gg YP and well played.
actual playing time was approx 20 mins and a bit weird, from my point of view, playing HU, since I dont even like short handed games ... I have no idea why, I just prefer full ring games.
good luck to the remaining quarter finalists. wonder who i'll get in the semi ?
