Ok, I have been off this for a bit. Hit a real bad spell and quit for a while. Played some MTT, super turbos, cash, etc...
Last night I played 3 STT's and back to back trashings. SO I made a post last night to "vent some steam" and quit playing. Go back today refreshed and take first!
Player to my right basically gave me the game donking along horribly and gifting me tons of chips to keep me deep stacked which yield a definite advantage. If you notice, I switched up and played passive in places I would normally be aggressive. I have him as a total maniac and decided to take some hands all the way calling rather than being the aggressor. The hands weren't the nuts and I am not getting rid of him by betting if he has anything there. If he has a monster, he usually says so with chips. Some of what he did, all I could bring myself to say was "Simply Amazing".
Nothing special about my play really, mostly it was maniacs mistakes that gave me the win or made it possible opposed to superb play. On the other hand, playing the player and identifying him and being able to exploit him was pretty good play after all.
