LIES!

I remember something about betting on who can throw a coin at a tin can... and you getting 6/5 at one point... being down £400.
Definitely stand up, non gambler! [ ] /  Lil'd won often in his side bets according to his blog [ ]


2nd Session today was better..

Stars

10NL
8 then 6 'fast' tables
1049 hands > 100 mins > won $15.91 > $EV 5.86

Tried to play some more tables since 6 is becoming 'easy' and less effort.  It also allows me to be a little tighter pre - now running  between 27/23 and 21/18 which is going to make it easier to take pots down postflop vs the regs.

I managed to run 8 tables for a while.. but I am using a 10.3 inch netbook to process but viewing on a 19" monitor.  But the 'fast' tables are pretty tough when that quick.. mainly its the game flow and the decisions that allows me to make since I'm think I might make more in NSD pots than most at this level.

Had some run good and bad
The run good

Yer, I read about that too.. how you basically ran uber bad and he had the perfect dominoes or something...


TRIP REPORT
I'll do a more 'interesting details' report tomorrow as I'm pretty tired now.

Main Cliffs:
Super 50
- Played like a genius, owned everyone for a long time!!!
- AQ into KK with 15k of dead money out there to get to 73k @ 300/600 avg - 23k.
- 'Mini blowup' after being bluffed in a ridiculously stupid spot. wp sir.. dont know if 'tilt' is the right word but meh.. watevs
- Then got a little too aggro and ran into top of peoples range for next hour! = down to 25k.
- Checked myself before I recked myself..
- [X] Became a nit

- Table chage @ abso-perfect time.
- [X] New table full of suckas
- Won lots of pots to get me slowly up to like 38-45k
- Find   , 3bt.. then spazz call inbetween us... tyty
- Rebuild and retake over table.. slowly working my 80k up to 130k (avg 60-80 during this time)
- Nice raise then cc, crain on K10x10 vs spazzy villain with AQo... villain has 56fd and folds. +40k
- Really solid, unexploitable poker
- [ ] Made mistakes from last 60 till final

Final table
- Final tabled 3rd in chips, played solid, sneaking a few preflop pots my way.
- Refuse any deal till at least 3 handed... they're bad @ poker and we are 3rd in chips.
- No spew or spazzing, just observant - picking up info and reads for later..
- Lost JJ vs A10 aipf for 1/3 stack. SIGH
- Continued being cautious - 2 on my right were CL's after some insane pots (and BIG fishees)
- With bb being a nit and having 4M I shoved   btn into   who 'sigh calls', we lose - down to 2M
- rebuild and back up to 4.5M shove next btn into bb .

- 6th £402
- They all insta-chop for £1380 each.. wp sirs. you 'deserve' it.



Played pretty good today, shame about the mini blowup but for the most part didn't make many mistakes.


Night all
x

details of blowup pls

Effectively the blowup was after being bluffed by in a three way pot with me and the other decent player at the table, we both had monster stacks and the hand plays out like this.

Chinese guy (seems ok, 120k) opens to 1800 @ 300/600
'Dude' calls from 18.5k
I call with from 76k

flop
(Or similar)

Check from Chinese, bet 1800 from 'dude', I call, Chinese calls.

turn
 
I check, Chinese checks, dude bets 2800..... I call, Chinese folds.

river
 

I check, villain shoves. I tank and spend a long time looking at him... He looks pretty chilled, no 'obvious' live tells.. I sigh fold.

And he snap shows 45o for a strange but 'well timed' bluff.... ALL my recent bluff catchig attempts in spots like this have been shown KJ or better..


Blowup............
So not really a traditional style 'crazy' blowup, more of a 'lets play 3x as many hands and win anyways because they're bad @poker'.
(I know the reason I've owned them up until this point is they dont fold and that's how I've got a big stack.)

So I play like 60/55 for the next 3orbts and then get into following hand vs same 'dude'.

He limps utg and we open 4.5x with A10o... We've opened bigger because he doesnt have a limp fold range + we want to get plenty of chippies when he check folds flop 90%. Folds round and he calls.

Flop
Two Clubs

Check, I check.
He doesn't fold pairs, might even jam random overs n at this point we have like 3:1 stack: pot ratio.

Turn
  he leads smallish.. Definitely 'weak'.. So I take 30seconds and shove....
He sighs and sighs and sighs and says 'well its my own fault' and calls with J10... Fmfl!
He was betting on ANY over except A 100% time imo. So to 3outer the turn after Limp calling utg with J10o just really annoyed me.

[ ] took it with class
[X] apologised after a few mins..
[X] became a nit and schooled it from here until FT


Currently in 'the red lion' pub in Westminster meeting a friend I made at work in Sao Paulo last year.. Then maybe a quick 1/1 or 1/2 with last nights 400 before home for work at 9am.

I will almost definitely follow this diary however the use of the word 'uber' must be kept to a minimum in my opinion. 

I am by all accounts a nobody on this forum with a tiny number of posts to my name but I will make a suggestion that you keep the belittling of opponents and all-round negativity towards your enemy to a minimum.  Things will definitely read/flow a whole lot better without you expressing your disgust at every opponents line in hands. 

By all means be evaluative and constructively critical but demeaning, degrading descriptions will get prospective readers backs up and could result in them venturing over to some less negative diaries for their fix of reality-living.

Good luck and I really hope you win the world.

Fair point, appreciated.

I'll try to be more objective.. Does anyone have tips on how to explain how I judge a players skill level to be without being insulting??

The game was good.

He was a recreational player.

The field was soft.

I fancied my chances at a deep run.

+1. I think as well tbh it's a leak you're going to realise you have pretty quickly, have a bit more respect for your opposition imo

I am aware of it more nowadays which makes a big difference.

Still learning I am. Nice guy I am becoming. Cheesy

Trip report later - The Victoria, London
Cliffs-
Played really solid, removed my bluffing pants and put on the value town speedos.
Made a set on and A high board and got paid.
Ran pretty good for live... (Had AA, 99 and AK a lot - sometimes got paid)
Kept going from 400 up to 600 then back to 400, then back to 600... Eventually resting around for 800 for 1/2 session
Lost a little at the end vs a guy who he apparently run up 200 into 800 in one hour
After 'guy' left, the table became populated with 1/3 regs and i left.

[X] booked a 485 win
[X] had a 30 min head and shoulder massage, love the Vic
[X] ate salmon and other brain foods while making friends at the table.. Bought new friend a sandwhich and cup of tea. (First time)
[X] ran good, played good, took it all with class and realised that poker is easy when you listen to lil'D

100% this. I have a whopping 3 readers because nothing good ever happens to me. Be more like Alex and go skiing out of the blue = 450 pages.

So we played pretty much every dtd sat tonight and pretty much bricked them all.. Couple of 2nds for some euros..

But we lost a LOT of 70/30's or crucial flips late on..
AJ vs A3.. - 329 10 10 (Had a flush redraw)
AQ vs QJ.. - J87 9 10
A2 goes all in for 3bb's, 7bb's reshoves with AKo, we reshove for 25bb's AKs and 88 decides to come along for 10bb's... (Joker!!!)
78 vs 67... xx6 x x.

The list goes on. Obv our shoving and calling ranges were good, just need a little bit of nice variance. Nvm.

Going to keep grinding them this wk to get my seat for Saturday. The dtd deepstacks are a bit part of my live plans for this year, any satellite tips welcome...

Getting an 'early' night tonight with my lady, night grinders.. Get a W. Tongue
