Graph Porn

The Sickest Heads Up SNG Poker Graphs

Have you ever heard of food porn? Food porn is basically a term referred to when people post visually spectacular pictures of food. That's the premise here, but with heads up graphs instead. I've assembled some of the most inspirational (and tilt inducing) HU graphs I could find for this post. Enjoy.

A special thanks to Sharkscope.com, without whom, many of us would have no idea what some of the best players are truly capable of. A tip of the cap to HEM, Top Shark and Poker Co-Pilot as well.

 

Dario Minieri's Record Setting Month

Dariominieri HUSNG Poker Graph Record Month Italy

There's no better way to start than with the biggest heads up sng month anybody has ever had. In December 2007, Dario had his record setting month on pokerstars. This graph shows about $370,000 in heads up profit. With standard rakeback/FPPs and missing games on Top Shark, Dario took home well over $400,000 that month.

 

HokieGreg Says Hello To Variance

HokieGreg Heads Up SNG Poker Player Hits Variance on this Graph

Ever wonder what -200 buyins in EV looks like? This is it. HokieGreg's disgusting run starts around June 2010 and carries into February of 2011. "10% regular speeds, games from $100 to $1,000, the bad run was pretty much spread evenly across. The average stake was around $300, so this is well over 200 buyins below," says HokieGreg

But all is not lost. "It's the best thing that could've happened to me, it really made me deal with a lot of weaknesses that I had," says HokieGreg. And if he can walk away from that type of graph with a positive attitude, I can't think of much that would bring him down at the tables.

 

Mersenneary's December to Remember

Mersenneary December 2010 Heads Up SNG Super Turbo Graph

Oh the days when Mersenneary would lament in the 2p2 HUSNG Tilt thread, whining about 40 buyin downswings at the $50s, sarcastically excited about being able to buy a rotating globe from the FTP store. In December 2010, he forfeited the ability to ever complain again. Add in taking first place in the Full Tilt Heads Up Leaderboard and first place in a rake race, and Mersenneary walked away with over $100,000 at an average buyin of just $300. Mersenneary did not completely forget about that globe though, and he donated about 15% of his pre-tax winnings to a charity named Partners in Health.

 

Woah, That's a Lot of Buyins

Serkules Heads Up Sit and Go Hyper Turbo Graph

Poker Co-pilot is kind of weird, but it's the best Serkules can do. The results though, well those are not weird, but are also the best Serkules can do. And it's quite a feat. You have to have some imagination (or focus?) to properly read this graph. An average game is about 15bbs on this graph. So over 30,000 bbs comes out to over 2,000 buyins in winnings at an average stake of $400. Woah, that is a lot of buyins!

 

The Main Event

Olivier "livb112" Busquet lifetime heads up sit and go poker graph

After the first four graphs, you would be hard pressed to find an appropriate place to end. Luckily, Olivier Busquet exists. How much money has Olivier won in heads up sngs? Put it this way, you can combine the lifetime profits of the first four players and still fall well short of Olivier's winnings on his Adonis112 and livb112 aliases. If you add in 35% rakeback (his total equivalent is likely higher than that), you get over 3.3 million dollars.

Yes, I don't believe hyper

Yes, I don't believe hyper turbos were around yet, so it would be 90% turbo, 10% regular speed.
