Ouch. Today was tough to take.

$625 satellite

There were only 26 players, so they made 3 prizes. Down to 7 players, I had 35k (just over average). Big stud pot, got it in on 6th with  ( )  Two Diamonds against       (flush and straight draw, only flush is good) He hits   on river for a  75k pot.

$888 flight B

It was an amazing field. Got up to 29k. The one rec at that table opens to 1,400 at 300-600(75). I have   and make it 3,900. He tank-calls.

Flop is   . He moves all in (Ridiculous, it's 25k into a 9.5k pot). Call. It feels almost certain that he has pair plus gutshot. He does.   . Turn is  . Nice, this is a 60k+ pot.

River is  

Feeling drained. We go again, tomorrow.

$888 flight D

Was fairly quiet but just won a big one. 16,500 (8k starting stack )

Rec player raises the hijack to 1,100 at 200-400(25). I make the borderline decison to peel the button with  . Flop is . He bets 1.2k, I call.

Turn is . Check, check.

River is . He fairly quickly bets 3.2k.

Big decision. It definitely feels very suspicious, obviously. Some chance he may be bluffing with the better hand (even though, obviously, aq or ak should never bluff).

I call. He announces "ace high." Hmm, please don't say he has bluffed with aq/ak.

Its ok, he has A9

16k at 250-500(75)

Good luck Stu

Most of the bets placed so far seem more like hopeful punts rather than value spots

$888 flight D

OUT

270th place. I think its $1700, I will pick it up tomorrow.

AQ < AK was the big one and had me down to 4.5k. I moved that in with   . Both blinds called, and very much were in check down mode.

Turn is   , and both checked flop and turn- which was great news. River is         Two Clubs. Well, my fate was very much going to depend on whether this went check-check. If it does go check-check, it feels like I'm going to win 90% of the time. It there is a bet, it feels like I'm going to lose probably 90%

The big blind does bet, and has J2. Ah well, nice to have a run though.

Down to 4.5k. Weird one in PLO last hand before break.

Cutoff opens pot to 350, I peel.button with  two spades. Big blind calla. Flop is  (1st and 3rd pair, gutshot, back door flush draw).

The opener has 1950 and thinks and checks. I bet 600 into 1.1k. He tank calls.

It leaves him 1350 into 2300. Turn is blank . He tanks again, and checks. Its strange. It definitely could be a trap but the tanks feel genuine.

I move in, hoping not to get snapped. He does think,.for a good twenty seconds. He calls, and shows As three diamonds. (top two, nut flush draw).

Miss the river. Wow, still.trying to work out what happened. Clearly its a disgusting nit roll but not intentional -I.e. A nit roll rather than a slow roll. I guess I was right that the tanks were genuine. Maybe just a cooler.

$1,500 PLO/NLHE

Back up to near starting

Raise to to 400 on bramm's big blind. Flop  . Check, check. Turn is . He check calls 525, river is . Check check, he has QJ.

Raise to 400 UTG, big bljnd defends (the accidental slow roller). Flop a beautiful two hearts. He has 3.1k pot is 1.1k. I check behind as two streets of value almost gets it all in anyway, so I may as well invite him to bluff.

Turn is a lovely two hearts , and he checks. It must be right to now bet big as a ton of the time that I do get two streets of value, it's from an ace or better, which is not going to pass the turn. I bet 900, he calls after a minute.

River is two hearts . He checks. He has 2,400 into a 2,900 pot. I decide not to go for it all as the all-in will carry threat, but it must be right to go big. I bet 1,800. Its a three minute tank, but he folds

$1,500 NLHE/PLO

Sigh, it all ended in two no limit holdem level five hands.

I have 6,200 and   in the big blind at 100-200(25). Button has played OK and straight up, and raises to 550. He has me just covered. The table has not been out of line too much at all, so I'm not overly thrilled to get it in, but definitely happy to. I make it 1,700. He calls

Flop is   . There is 4,500 behind into a 3800 pot.

I actually decide to turn my hand into a bluff on this flop, and bet 1,700. It's really close, I'm not sure whether I like it, and sadly it is the decision that ultimately changes the whole tournament, because of what it does to the chip stacks going into the next hand.

The decision to bluff with TT I feel is borderline. The strength is that I can bet less than half the pot with some fairly strong leverage, and so get good odds on my bluff. It is obviously hard for him to be really strong, and I don't think he has the hands like A8 and A9 very much. Obviously it's a problem for me to block JT, and the other problem is that it is always possible that he will actually just  call, even though this is very much an inflexion point. At least if he did, I would realise the equity of my likely 6 outs, on the turn. However, my image was perfect at the time, I had done nothing at all out of line. So I'm effectively aiming the bluff at his Kx and Jxs, I feel with decent hope that even if he is as strong as KQ, he may realise the leverage against him and strongly consider folding. I obviously have the advantage that I avoid having to check-fold too, and possibly get bluffed.


He moves all-in, and I actually get to see his hand, as he takes my snap fold as a snap call. He has   .

Hmm, the decision is really close.

Down to 2,600, in the small blind at 100-200(25) on the very next hand, the button limps. I have   . He is the "accidental slow roll in PLO player" who seems to have played completely down the line. It is his first holdem limp though. With 700 now out there, I feel it has to be a move in, even though it doesn't feel good. The limp is almost definitely exactly the kind of suited connector type hand that it seems to be. It just doesn't feel like he is trapping. Given his bizarre PLO tank (in the first hand), he may even consider folding some of the aces that beat me, in the unlikely event that he has them.

Anyway, the big blind moves in. Always frustrating to aim at move at one hand, and then run into it big time with the only other hand to get through. Big blind has   . The button does snap fold, so at least the move was right.

It runs out in the kick-in-the-teeth way. I flopped an  . He rivered a  .
