Decided to play Sunday online, main event on Monday and skip the 10k
At 1am I messaged my horses that I would be streaming "four huge stacks". I was 2/20 in the warmup, big stack in both 530s and top 10 in the milly.
Quickly lost very big chip lead pot in the milly ak v a9 where he just ripped in 80+bbs over my 3bet
Cashed the party 530s and had the big sweat in the warm up. The field was incredible. I lost 5 all is but it didn't really matter, I was able to make a lot of chips from obvious errors from opponents. There was one Swiss whale who was going insanely crazy, 3xn, 3bettinf, limping etx, we were the two big stacks and I passed up one really good spot to bluff jam the river vs him and preserve my stack. It was probably better to jam in a vaccum but with 12 left I was happy to keep my 40bbs or whatever and save them.
Almost instantly I get kings and there's a 10bb rejam and he cold calls, I have KK and click it back, we get it in and he has AA. Was a sad way to go, but really enjoyed my session. Was so fun playing only 6 tables maximum because of table space and moving forward I'm 100% going to cut out the lower buy ins of my schedule and just focus on the bigger and better stuff. I've changed a lot in my game in last 3 weeks, especially working hard in pio on some stuff. It's very difficult to input some stuff regarding pio but I think I've found a method that works well for me to get the best results.
Anyway, today was the main, had an extremely fun table, lots of nice guys and I was playing extremely loose. Made 3/4 big folds and 3/4 big bluffs, my image was definitely absolutely crazy. I have probably 5 noteworthy hands but very tired now. All came to an end when I open AA and overbet turn and bet river big on q22t6ddhhh vs bb.
Sick thing is I got a live read that he had a 2 on the flop, but would have just been too ridic to not bet turn and river. I blocked his Ace highs that could fold the turn vs big bet so definitely couldn't check that street, but in blanking turns I was planning on checking and calling/folding river. Least the reads were on point. Don't think checking river is really an option co vs bb unfortunately.
So busted and came back to room and ran some really interesting spots and then played some 3 handed 5/10 vs some very good players. Have been playing more recently and Doing quite well. I think k the best part of my game is definitely playing exploitative and making big fodls/calls/raises based on player/population reads, but also realise that playing a schedule full of highrollers I need to get my game to a level where I think I'm winning in tough 5/10 line ups. I'll work hard to make sure that happens.
I'm left in bit of s pickle now, the fields here are awfully small, way worse than other stops and there is not much to play until the 10k on Thursday. I could go back to Newcastle for a few days, back to Budapest, maybe straight to Nottingham.. Unsure yet, will see how I feel in the morning when I wake up.
I guess it will be play the 2k, run bad, come on here, moan and then win the Super Tuesday
