Will do a proper write-up after the comp, but we're through to day 2 with 92k and going back to 4k/8k/8k BBA.

920 left and $397k up top.


Blonde is really awkward on my phone, so did a fair few pots on there, to make it easy to transfer to here when I do so.

Back tomrorow at 2pm.

V V unlucky Mr Rasberry.

No idea how he calls for almost half his stack pre, but I guess the game has changed.

Am delighted to have some company in bad beat corner though.

I did put half the chips in with 2 outs, though. Obviously his call is optimistic, but I'm not sure if I was, or if I should just c/f the flop.

I might go for double burger and as much Gelato as the Aria Patissierie will sell me Smiley

They do have a 150 Stud8/O8 at 6pm, though. Have the $600 11am, so prob best to swerve that.

The 2 offending hands.

Think I prefer pictures of food.


EDIT - Marky - I've rotated that first photo, it was making me giddy.

No VADA testing for Pacman v Thurman. Absolute farce to be fair.

Pacman juiced to the gills.

Only had one drink so far, and that was on Saturday night after dinner. Actually, had a Pineapple Mule at the Excalibur steakhouse last night, but only drank half of that as it was too sweet.

Drinking will take place when I've got a 2 day break, as it usually takes me 24 hours to even see properly after a proper session nowadays.

Looking at how I play, you'd wonder if I ever saw properly...

In better news, Doobs found the secret of the game and got it in real bad with his second bullet, and is now sitting on a mountain of chips, at least 3 times starting stack.

Bloke is a proper player.

Good luck the Doobs.

Cheesy

Good luck, Doobs.


I'm at Rio tomorrow, so may bump into you, if you're unlucky.

Beat Of The Trip incoming.......

  two hearts  

3 way to this flop, I have raised pre and collected two punters.

  

So I have the nut straight, nut flush draw and nut low draw.

It's bet then raised and I'm auto all-in. The bettor folds.

One caller, he has A-2-6-6-X for the same low and a set.

On their backs, and the fella not in hand says "I folded 9-9".

Turn improves me even further,   to give me nut flush for the made nut high and nut low draw.

The dealer then somehow finds this river.....

 

That's as brutal as it gets, and it's the 2nd time this trip rivered quads have done me.

Anyway, I played the hand just fine, so don't feel too bad, though nought for plenty is starting to sting.

Did Marky McBock rock up for that?  Shocked

Not guilty, your honour.

I was still splashing around at Aria.

Rebuy?

Perhaps Gill could play out the rest of the stake?

Sorry state of affairs when you have to rely on Marky to get you out. Grin

That's an understatement Cheesy

Won't need much popcorn for the first one, unfortunately...

Managed to bust first comp before the 2nd break, losing the only 2 pots of size I played.

Chipped up to 25k from 20k starting without anything really happening, and then pick up   .

Make it 600 playing 100/200/200 utg.

MP1 flats and MP2 playing the first hand since I sat down makes it 2.5k.

Folds back to me, and I make it 7.5k which he flats after some thought with 9k back.

16.1k in the pot, and flop is   .

Given I'd not seen him play a hand, I'd put him on a pretty strong range, discounting AK as I'd expect that to go in pre, and worse aces to be in the muck.

I don't think I should c/f, so bet out 9k and he obv snaps me off with .

Whoops, made a mess of that. I'm not sure if c/c is better, and think it would be better line if I had


That leaves me with just under 10k, and I don't really play any pots until I reshove 7k to a 1k utg+2 open @ 200/400/400 and KK<AQ.

Lad next to me was a pro and he said he does the same with the first lot of Kings, but I don't know if he was just being nice because I'm a raspberry Cheesy

Off to Rio now to pick up tickets for the $600 & $400 WSOP Comps.

That was car crash stuff. Absolutely no idea what Paulie was thinking getting involved in that.

That good? Cheesy

Glad you had such a good trip, and welcome back.

Get us all out of it, please. Good luck today!

Behave yourself in there, too. All sorts of uncouth ne'erdowells can be found imbibing lascivious beverages in the Alligator Bar and frittering away cents on the dollar on the Paigow tables. I've heard.

Marky has arrived then.
