Poker Nations Cup on DSF
31. August 2006 | Category: 50outs
Poker Nations Cup yesterday (30.8.). Commenting was done by german top pro Michael Keiner (not by Katja for obvious reasons ;). As I have written before, the production itself is top class. You see some amazing plays by some of the worlds best known players. I still won’t spoil the fun here, enough if one of germans most read TV magazines is doing this in their very first announcement of heat #1.(“DSF”) started airing the
Katja’s heat is heat #3, aired on Sunday, September 3., 20:15 german time. Make yourself some free time to watch it but fasten seat belts. I have seen the english commented version of this already as it was aired on UK’s channel 4 already, where Barney Boatman and Jesse May did the comments. Both have been *very* excited about Katja’s play and in fact I have never heard them talking so well about any player so far – and it is absolutly deserved. Just pay some attention how she either folds second best hands or bluffs world top-class players out of their winning hands. Absolutly amazing skill, timing and fearless play. A pleasure to watch. That’s poker.
Look at Katja on this picture here; compare that approachable nice girl-next-door with the fearless player you see in TV there and you get an remote idea about how our private life is 😀
I get a lot of feedback about the new german poker magazine and 95% of it is positive. There are even some people saying our column is the highlight of the magazine 🙂 Thank you very much, we’ll will keep that column. Also next issue will have a special about Katja as I understand.
In actual playing we practiced some HORSE for the upcoming WCOOP at PokerStars. First trys have been at $2/4 because we have never played any Razz before, much to the amazment of the players there. Some have watched Katja playing $100/200 hours before and now got excited about playing with her in that “little” game. Not to bad in fact as Katja won about $100 there in 4 hours practizing. When I finally took over, now an “experienced predator”, I went straight to the highest HORSE table available, $10/20 and of course I lost like $200 in no time (but always on the river, what do you think?? lol). Still, some practice is well deserved.
Tuesday we both busted early in the €200 NLH tournament and went home, playing some more $30/60 but also no good. As Katja was traveling yesterday I went alone to Spielbank Hamburgs weekly €300 NLH event, just 15 players, 3 paid. I got 4th :(. First I went-allin on the button with ATs but got called by AJs in the BB and lost my few remaining chips then with KJ vs AK. Cash game looked juicy but I went home, my computer is not working 100% and I spent the night trying to scare WindowsXP by checkraising with some (pea)nuts.
