Promised a report on this, will try and remember as much as i can.
The same day as the 500 i bubbled the 200 after making a dubious rr allin against a rock with jj when i shlda at least counted to 5 and thought about the situation.
The guy with 4bbs must have been happy with two 30bb stacks plus clashing, and of crse he has to have zee bullets.
Anyway onto the 550, i arrived at my table to see some familiar faces, and some not so familiar ones.
I won a couple of reasonable pots early on and had chipped up to 12k from the 10k starting stack. Then the following hand arose.
I raise to 150 at 25-50 UTG+1 with
, and pick up 2 callers from the blinds. The small blind (6k) is an accomplished circuit pro who doesn't get out of line massively-but seems to have lost every pot he's played so far, the big blind (14k) seems a little splashy.
Flop comes down
, and the small blind donk leads for 275 into the 450 pot, big blind folds and i raise it up to 625. My thinking here was that i had the best hand and an argument can be made for both raising and flatting on such a dry board.
I'd decided i wasn't going to fold more or less, but perhaps that's even more of a reason to flat rather than already thinking about getting in 100bbs on this flop with 1 pair.
I think the poss steam factor of the sb naively entered in2 my head here, and i think that's underestimating him, he isn't going broke with a 9 here often enough.
Sb now makes it 2k and after a small contemplation i set him in and his
Stack cut in half i now find my stack drip, drip, dripping away. Sb from prev hand is now controlling table and it's tough to find a decent spot, a half playable hand might have helped but meh.
Eventually i find
with a stack of 3500 and the blinds at 75-150. I make it 450 utg and pick up an early positional caller(like 12kish) and one on the button (30k odd).
Flop comes down all rags with 2 clubs, i checked thinking of rrsng allin with backdoors and some...if only small fe.
Both check and the jack of clubs peels off, now i shld prob jam this in or just check fold, however i go for the 700 lead hoping to take this down or at least see a relatively cheap river if some1 donk peels.
Ep flatter now makes it like 2000 or something, ive got 2350 back and it will cost me about 1300 to win 4k, thus i prob just need to get this in now, hope my ace king in addition to the clubs are all live and bink it, or of crse fold but now its bowl patrol.
I think i momentarily stepped out of my body and decided i cld peel as the 3-1 odds were reasonableish and i cld use my 1k odd in another hand, yeah right mate-bb next hand with 6bbs, just fold or get it in now ffs.
Also just jam or c fold the turn.
Obv missed the river and had to very shamefully cfold the brick river whilst hearing restrained chortles from educators on the table.
Dbld up next hand but cldnt win a 3 way 7k pot all in pre, to put me bk in it at 1-200+25 ante, a hand or 2 later with khqh versus 107std and ajo.
Please feel free to give opinions on any of the hands, especially the JJ V 73 hand, pretty sure that was the pivotal one.
Sorry for not exactly my best performance, i'd like to say it was emotional but it was rather bland. Hopefully will be able to bink next time to make up for this semi debacle- if i decide to do another staking thread, laters peeps.
