Apologies for the writing...
So i am right up for this tourney and arrive at 1.5 hrs before the start.. Grab a cuppa and watch the tailend of the Golf between Westwood and Donald. Take a Boo Luke...
We sit down with 98 players and a few further stragglers and we are off. I am sat between Tikay and Tighty? Both loaded with cash and proceed to slate all players under the age of 40, " these internet players should be banned" LOL...
We lose a player at Level 2. 22K chips at 50/100. and he gets a round of applause. WP GG..
No hands of note in the first 4 levels and as we started with 12K we get to 17.2K with this hand. Blinds are 100/200 and 1 limp and SB makes up and i look down at 10c5d in the BB and check. the flop is
. i check and the SB bets 400 and i flat. the Turn is a Lovely
and the SB bets 600. i call. the River then comes
and SB (Tikay) bets 1200 and i tank raise to 2.9K and get snapped off with
We get to the break with 17.2K and the average is 16.3K. I purchase the add-on 10K chips.
We get broken up 30 mins after the break as i was playing table 11 and get moved to a table with a couple of the more creative players.
Playing standard stuff with the odd steal here and there and suddenly we have just over 40K and going nicely. We then proceed to go through 2 hours of hell with the worst cards known to man. Get moved table and have 32K with the blinds 300/600 i look down at
and raise to 1600 in the co+1 and the BB makes up. the flop is
the BB bets 3K and i RR to 10.2K and he instant pushes for 60K. im like WTF. AQ or flushing or a set? Why does he snap shove.... i call and see he has AQ and we now have 65K. GFI..
Im minding my own business with the music on for some time and then off to listen to what is going on and the usual banter at the table with Bad Beats galore...
We move to the 1K/2K with 200 Ante and i look down at
and raise to 7K out of my 57K Stack. I believe i have a decent image and it's folded to the BB who makes up. the flop comes
. The BB Checks and i Bet 10K and the BB Calls. mmmmm the Turn comes
and he bets 17K? i put him on AK to AJ so know he is calling my shove. I shove and he calls with
. FML. Can i do anything different here. Would appreciate feedback.
If i win that hand i would be Top 5 in chips with 30 Left and GTD to make day 2.
I loved the tourney and really appreciated the chance to play.
Hope to do it again.
Sorry for the no return but Many Thanks for the opportunity.
PS Vinny text me 10 seconds before the exit hand to ask how i was doing. FML.
