Matt Stout's Allinat420 Blog

Online poker grinding and live tournament action with Matt “All In At 4:20” Stout.

I've done some slacking before, but this takes the cake. This is my first Pokerlistings blog in over two months. My last one was my final Sunday Report in the pre-DOJ era.

Aside from that drama, my ex-girlfriend of 4.5 years and I broke up.

This Sunday Report covers the last weekend before the online poker lockout in the U.S., a golden time for American grinders.

We're still waiting for the situation to become clear but for now let's all bask in the gentle glow of what it was like before the DOJ smited us.

I was vacationing in Florida this week, so Sunday was the only session I played for the entire week.

I flew down to Orlando with my girlfriend to meet up with one of my best friends Mike Hofeld, who recently moved from NJ to Orlando.

From there we rented a convertible and drove down to Key West for a few days and rented a house. It's a pretty cool place ... has the feel of the Carribean islands without dealing with international flights/customs.

Joe Cappuccio and I must have been on a drug called "Charlie Sheen" this Sunday, because we were doing some epic winning all over the place.

It was honestly one of those sessions after a dry spell that made both of us remember just how much we love this game again, and why.

I'd have needed a much, MUCH stronger form of anti-tilt this week than a simple YouTube video!

While I've gotten to the point where I can generally handle the ups and downs and beats of poker fairly well, internet and computer issues can still put me on pretty serious tilt, especially during downswings and especially in crucial situations.

Well, my ~1 year old, fully loaded desktop decided that it wanted to crap the bed mid-Sunday session on this occasion, not once, but twice.

One of these times I was inexplicably looking at AA, KK, and QQ simultaneously, and the AA was facing a shove already.

I bricked my first 21 tournaments of the day, but somehow it wasn't enough to bring me down! =)

The first part of my session was a little rough, getting some stacks early but watching them dissolve just as quickly. Fortunately I've never been one to just give up and unregister for the rest of the day, and it drives me crazy every time I see a friend of mine do that, ESPECIALLY on a Sunday.

I guess I just tend to just convince myself that the night session will be better ... and this time it was.

I convinced one of my best friends Joe Cappuccio (Joey Capp/Cappuccio816) to come out to LA and stay at my friends' house while we play the $5k event at the Bike this week.

He reciprocated by busting me out of the event with #Ah#5h against my #Th#7h on a #8h#6h#2h in the fourth level of the tournament on day one.

I bricked the $2500 six-max, $5k heads up, $5k NL, and $10k main event at the LA Poker Classic, admittedly not the best week of live poker, so it was back to the online grind on Sunday.

I decided to take it easy for this Sunday session and play a few less tournaments than usual to try to focus on the bigger ones, especially since I'm still in LA and playing on a laptop + monitor instead of my usual desktop setup with a 30" and a 27" monitor at home.

There's not much I can say about this session. It featured the biggest multi-entry tournament of all time, which let me take six - $640 cracks at winning $1.3 million.

It would have been difficult for me to have bricked this opportunity harder, not even coming close to the money with any of the six entries. On to the next one!

After a short break Matt Stout is back with his famous Sunday Report! Today we've got a double dose to get you up to speed for 2011.

The first few sessions of the year haven't exactly been kind to Stout but if there's one thing he knows it's variance. He's still up over $150,000 since he started the Sunday Report almost a year ago.

I was on an unexpected hiatus from blogging for a bit at the end of 2010.

But, partially due to being yelled at by angry readers, I've decided to come back to once again give you guys a glimpse into the rollercoaster ride that an online tournament grinder goes through on the most epic of online poker days: Sundays.

I decided to cut back on the volume a little bit this week and keep it to a maximum of 8-9 tables instead of my usual 12.

Even though I only cashed 2 of 32 tournaments I was pretty pleased with the result since I felt like I played significantly better in the tournaments I did play.

HAPPY (belated) HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!!!

As you can probably guess, there was no way I was going to skip my Sunday donkaments for Halloween, even though I was pretty disappointed to see that it fell on a Sunday this year.

I considered sitting around my house in a costume all day but I just wasn't feeling that motivated. Oh well. I've vowed to myself that I'll do Halloween HUGE next year.

He jumped in Steve Brecher's private jet and filmed today's video blog!

A couple more close calls and final two table appearances, but still continuing to slip a little and give back a bit of the profits from my Sunday heater earlier in the year.  

I still have a sick life and no reason to complain though, so I'm going to avoid putting any negative energy out there and just get to the numbers.

When you see the cashes listed below you'll understand why it took me a week and a half to even want to look at the records again. It was my first session back in front of my home set up, in my element.

I was feeling great and ready to give it my all for a full session.

Matt Stout has been kicking it in London for the last few weeks playing live majors but he still found time to play his usual schedule of Sunday online tournaments.

When Stout started this report back in February he talked a lot about how much variance goes into these MTTs and we're starting to get the idea. He's up over $150,000 so far but the weekly swings can still be pretty sick.

Read on for Stout's latest Sunday Report.
