HSR weekly report #20: Serkules won most and retook leadership again. SkaiWalkurrr fell on a serious downswing.
September 16, 2012 - 16:01
This week we tracked results from 17 players: 10 gained in profit, 6 had losses and 1 ended up break-even. The winners combined for about $140,000, losers for about $93,000. The players played 535.5 games on average. SkaiWalkurrr had the biggest sample: 1,347 games.
Battle between the two greatest: Serkules and SkaiWalkurrr
3 weeks ago Rachid Ben "SkaiWalkurrr" Cherif become new profit leader for the first time in our weekly reports history, ending Serkules continuous dominance. However Serkules was not going to give up easily. He proved that in the very next week when he retook his leade back, creating a seemingly safe distance of $30k.
SkaiWalkurrr surprised nobody by removing that deficit in just seven days - that was last week - and winning the top spot again, despite the fact that Serkules profited for $11,000. SkaiWalkurrr achieved that by winning impressive amount of $59,260. So at that moment Serkules had to chase back a $17,000 deficit.
And he removed that gap, successfully becoming this week's top winner: $30,584 after 818 games.
Biggest SkaiWalkurrr‘s downswing since reports started
He had brutal week. The worst since the beginning of our reports. He lost -$50,939 after 1,347 games. That result could be even worse, because he was down for $90,000 after first 814 games.
What happened? Was it the reality of cruel variance? Or maybe Skai got used to his long-term successes, and became confused when things did not go his way? Can the player of his caliber tilt heavily and make lots of bad plays in short-run?
I can bet all my copywriter‘s salary that Martin “0Piggybank” Finger could believe that bad plays were highly involved.
Last month he played against Skai and – in my assumption - was owned. Ultimately Martin lost his self-control and wrote:
"0PIGGYBANK" said, "are you serious?"
"0PIGGYBANK" said, "your ****ing luck"
"0PIGGYBANK" said, "tilt me so hard"
"0PIGGYBANK" said, "playing like a fish"
"0PIGGYBANK" said, "and win every ****ing hu"
Skai didn‘t reply with anything. That's why I would like to be brave enough and reply to 0Piggy on SkaiWalkurrr‘s behalf. Not in words but in facts.

What does the future hold?
The battle between Serkules and SkaiWalkurrr reached a most interesting stage. Now Serkules is up for $624,103 and Skai for $555,877 profit.
Will Skai be able to remove new gap again? Was that just his temporary slump or maybe it is the beginning of the long downswing?
I am glad, that we do not have to wait long to find out the answers.

Piggy doesn't seem to be one
Piggy doesn't seem to be one to hold back, particularly after a few drinks (based on some of the stories Plauzee has posted).

I watched him 9bet QQ against another big stack in a 1k mtt yesterday. That was ridic. He's so fun to watch though. I wonder what his stats look like.
