Matt Stout has been running super hot since he started the Sunday Report back in February, racking up almost $200k in profits! Unfortunately this week's session didn't go quite so well.

I went crazy trying to figure out what the accounting errors were for this session. Part of it was me forgetting that Stars now uses separate account for US dollars and British. So now when I buy into satellites for EPT London, I must do so in British Pounds.
Now, if this were going to simplify things for British players I would understand. But the fact is that the vast majority of Stars tournaments and cash games are spread in US dollars anyway, so I'd have to imagine that this is just a bad idea all around and even a pain in the ass for British players.
Feel free to comment below, especially if you're British/know why this would be good for British players.
Anyway, I was nearly able to pull off the same trick as the last two weeks ... the one where I get stuck anywhere from $10-20k during the course of the day and manage to lucksack my last tournament of the day and get almost all of the money back.
This time I was stuck about $9k, and the attempted save-my-ass tournament of the week was the Stars $215+rebuys. I was cruising along slightly above average for quite a while as we approached the final table.
The Jon "apestyles" Van Fleet and I got into a pretty standard coin flip for the chip lead. I had A-K against his 10-10, and we got it in pre for 410k at 3/6k. The flop came K-8-4 rainbow, but the turn was a ten and I was drawing stone dead.
Not quite sure why the flop can't just come 10-2-2 if he's going to win the pot, and I'd like to tell the RNG to GFY for that reason. =)
