Yesterday was the big tourny 900 runners televised/taking pics robbing twats thought i was going to be famous nope.
started off driving picking my two mates up one was reluctant to give me petrol money i wouldnt mind but i was skint myself. I had the whole route planned go here bla bla then take notice of the sat nav well i ended up following the sat nav expecting it to get me to the motorway as i was the wrong end of town due to picking my mate up It end up taking me the long way round on all the country roads. We hit major traffic and road works and getting there early to eat wasnt looking so great. In the end we got there and signed in and went for food we had half hour first place 15 mins for food took us ten to decided so we scrapped that went to another half an hour so we headed back to the tourny starving.
As i walked in i see Corkeye what a nice guy he looks just like his DC pic chatted to him for ten minutes had a pint then we took are seat it was packed like sardines.
At my table i kinda got that most where passive one was a good player headphones we will call him. i managed to pick up some playable hands raised them up and every time i did headphones came over the top of me or flat called he was starting to get on my tits i ended up breakeven as i left the table started with 10k. The next table i was in the seat of death apparently hadn't seen a hand for a long time and when you see ace ten it looks like the nuts raise from utg the guy had been short but just doubled up on reasonable hands. i flat called middle pos not the way i wanted to play it but i couldnt fold because i hadnt seen anything in ages flop comes 5 Q 10 rainbow he checks i bet 3k he folds woop.
next table am on 8k players are a mix of to tight and passive i try a few steals the players to my left are tight but as they do they shove over the top as they are short. The big stack is a tight as a ducks arse i tell you if i had that stack i would of been tearing it up im card dead for the next hour and the steals ive made havent worked out. i pick up pocket 6's and spaz out and shove over 20bbs lol i thought about it and the reason was every small ish stack keeps shoving i decided to make it easier on myself.
Blinds up whole table limps in big blind look down at ace queen woop shove and get called by ace ten mine holds yippee 17k.
In bigblind again the cutoff ive noticed raising alot more i defend king ten flop comes nothing i let go.
Bigblind cut off raises again i defend Ace 9 suited flop come Q 9 3 i check he checks my plan was to flat call a raise and judge the turn. It felt really weird when he check the flop and i dont put him on the queen and i felt my 9 was good i stick in 3k and he flats im still thinking am good here my thoughts where shove coz he has no queen or check call. i decided to to play it safe and check he checks and shows pocket tens i think the shove would of got him offÂ gutted
that lost me about 4k.
next hand Ak a raise from the big stack who has started raise folding to action a reraise from a guy i dont rate at all i know he has a hand i just dont think its massive and i cant fold my ace king as the blinds are up. I ship he calls with 9's im pretty happy untill he hits quads meh not my day.Â
One of my mates is still in and so is cork but its like looking for a needle in a hay stack we ended up leaving around 11.30 home for 1.
plan today play poker
