    Just finished playing two heads up matches for fun. I have A,Q of clubs in the BB and I flat call a very aggressive raise from the button. He flops a boat with 9,6 off-suit. After a few hands, I built my stack back up to 700 chips and he raises with 4,5 off suit from the button. I re-raise with pocket 7's, and he moves all-in. I call. There is a six on the flop, an eight on the turn, and a seven on the river.

    Flopping a boat is no big deal. I have had the good fortune of doing the same at live games and I have also seen others flop a boat, but to hit a straight five hands later with 4,5 against pocket seven's?

    The last four hands in our rematch went to showdown. He had pocket Kings, I had A,K off-suit. The next hand he had pocket Jacks, and I had A,T off-suit. He had A,Q and I had K,J in our third hand, and in our last hand he had A,Q again, and I had pocket nines.

    That is:

    KK
    JJ
    A,Q
    A,Q

    Good entertainment.

    Thank you for the post bpbenda, but I have a hard time believing that you can't simply use a program that assigns a value to each card.

    Action on the last four hands of our second heads up match.

    KK's against AK off-suit

    I raise. He re-raises. I three bet, and he shoves all in. I had him out stacked over 3 to 1, so I am not going anywhere. I miss my ace and the case king appears on the river.

    JJ's versus A,10 off-suit. (Both red)

    He makes a hefty raise. I call.

    The flop is: A,6,4 all red. He slows down by value betting the flop. I call. He makes a larger bet on the turn. I call. We both check the river. I win the pot.

    A,Q off-suit against K,J of spades

    I limp in. He goes all-in, I call. He doubles up.

    A,Q off-suit against pocket nines. He raises, I re-raise. He goes all-in. I call.

    He hits a Q on the turn and I hit my nine on the river.

    I like the beta for their new software. The layout is more intuitive, the search function for types of games is up front and easier to use for me. The chip graph is something new as well.

    Ditto. Loving it too. I still have to try to use Seitz's custom chips in it.

    I have to go find that. I seem to remember needing some programming to do it, but I'll give it one more look.

    I run it on a MAC so I'm not sure how thats going to work.

    The latest versions should be around here somewhere for download. Try searching "Seitz's chips".

    Citing an internal press release as proof that Pokerstars does not manipulate degrees of variability is like referencing a scientific study by Philip Morris that concludes nicotine is non-addictive.

    During the four successive rounds, eight hands were dealt. Two of the hands were identical in value, (one after the other), there were three pocket pairs, and four aces with very strong kickers.

    He wins the first game as a 20 to 1 dog after the flop. I win the second game as a 20 to 1 dog on the turn by hitting my two outer on the river.

    Do you really believe this but are still playing there regardless or simply trolling?

    C'mon, he's trolling right?

    EDIT:

    OK surely trolling!

    I posted the link because it was relative to his complaint. Not saying that I believe it or that you should. But with PokerStars being bought for nearly $5B from a publicly traded company, I would think that they have a vested interest in releasing honest information. If this were almost any other poker site releasing this video, I would write it off as bogus. But, PokerStars, it seems extremely foolish from a business and investment perspective to put something like this out there if it isn't true.
