Shocked, profitable weekend and another OBFV call?

Is anybody else shocked that Tiger lost the PGA Championship? I know I am. Even after Yang chipped in for Eagle, I was still pretty confident that Tiger would make the big shot or putt. Instead, it was Yang making the big shots. Oh well, the streak had to end sometime. I'm sure that Tiger will somehow get by.

A rare profitable weekend for me. I mixed in some 200PL this weekend when it was running. So far, it doesn't seem too much different. Of course, I have gotten lucky so far. I hit a set once against AK on an Ace high board. I flopped top two pair against a guy that flopped top and bottom. I made a hero call against a LAGgy type guy. I don't expect my 58.9 bb/100 win rate to continue at that level, LOL.

This one goes into the better to be lucky than good category.

I was intending to raise on another table when this table gained focus on me and it raised on this table. One bad thing with Absolute Poker is that don't auto load your table to 100 big blinds so sometimes I'm a little behind on changing the amount I'm sitting with.

And finally a hand against a bad player.

He was a 69/15/2.7 over just 13 hands. This is probably a an easy call; but just wanted to check. It's a big bet some I have to at least take some time and think about it.

Good to see you running hot. I think its a pretty automatic call. If he had not min-3-bet PF, it might be a little tougher, but his 3-bet limits his range to AA and A-x hands. Decent chance you split with AK, and AA would just be a gross cooler. If he's as bad as you say, he should show up with AQ/AJ a good enough percentage of the time to make this good.

Yep, this was an easy call for even me. He had pocket sixes and I won a pretty big pot
