Played a huge fish at 100/200 HU TD although only had 50% of myself, so effectively it was still 50/100 which I've played many times before. I started off playing him at 50/100 and took 5k off him pretty quickly; he was tilting madly and capping turns with Q8865 and stuff, or always raising 1:1 rivers no matter what he had. He then asked for 100/200, which I wasn't hat comfortable with but he was leaving otherwise, so reduced the variance by chopping it with a friend and played him.
It was a really interesting match. Really swingy for one, playing someone like that. However, he also was quite good at shifting gears and when he wasn't tilting, he was quite tough because he could be tricky with his made hands and seemed to adjust to my tendencies. I was up 15k at one point, but he managed to claw his way back by shifting gears, making a lot of hands and value betting them, and I felt like lost a few bets I didn't need to because I didn't adjust quickly enough; I ended only 6k up on him before he quit (my friend who went to bed before the match started would have seen half of this when he got up and checked his cashier.)
This added with the $5k I won earlier in the day meant yesterday is my biggest winning day now at around $13k, and I'm now up $23.5k so far in April. Most importantly, I've regained a lot of confidence at Triple Draw, which hopefully means big winning days will continue and I'll outdo February's results.
