$1500 pot limit Omaha hi lo

OUT

An absolute sickener

Limp   two hearts Two Clubs. Mid position big stack raises to 1100. Call

Flop Two Diamonds. (bottom set, decent low draw)


I check, he bets 1,400, I check raise pot, he pretty quickly gets it in. Massive 24,500 pot.

He has Two Clubs (bottom two, nothing else, no low draw)

Its just absolutely horrific from him to get in 12k at 150-300.

He has worse than a two outer. (he can hit aa or kk, but it counts for more that I can still take half by hitting low if he hits a seven).

It does indeed come king king for the 6% bad beat.

Tough to take.

Unlucky Stuart.  Feels bad to go out so soon in the event you have looked forward to for ages.   People getting it in so badly is the reason we play though (he says having got it in bad himself!). 

Anyway good luck in the rest of the series.  I wasn't around long enough to say hello.

Cheers Doobs, yeah there is something about that event that makes it tougher when you go out! Shame no 3k this year as well. See you around soon hopefully

3k limit six max, day one

16.4k approaching end of level one. Was actually going really well but then this hand.

Raise    CO, big blind defends. Nice flop of  Two Diamonds, he checks, I bet, he calls

Turn Two Diamonds to give me the straight. He checks, I bet, he calls.

River Two Diamonds . A flush I would prefer to have not made.

He checks, I bet, he check raises (all in normal tempo)

Not good news. 98% I can only beat a bluff. Its one of these spots where game theory wise, it is completely exploitative for him to bluff if I am even sometimes folding. But in a six handed tournament, we are nowhere near approaching both players playing GTO, so it is right to approach it in a vacumn.

My thinking was that there is very little that gets to the river that is so light that it needs to bluff , rather than contemplating a call. It is really enough AJ and KJ without a heart. (every other jack is a straight or a pair). He would of course be right to turn J8 etc into a bluff, but it just doesn't happen, and a big factor was that I didn't recognise him at all. A standard bluff line would be to raise the turn, and make a play, and he did of course have the option to just lead the river, rather than letting his plan to bluff depend on me betting when checked to.

So, it felt like a fold even given the massive pot odds.

$3k limit six max, day one

Bagged up 18,600 at the end of the day. About 72 left, 256 entrants so there must be near enough 44 in the money.

Reached a peak of 42k, but had to grind hard to stay above the red zone. Going back to 1.5k-3k tomorrow, so it will be a telling first level or two.

3k limit six max, day two

Action first two hands. Raise button with 66 at 1.5-3k. Both call. Flop 832r, both check-call my bet. Turn 832A checked round. River 832AT, sb check, bb bet. I've got a no brainer fold. Down to 14.3k

Second hand, I have kings. Raise CO, bb calls. Flop K97 rainbow (weeeee!). He check calls. Turn K973. He check raises (weeee). Interesting decision. I wil gave 3,600 left after calling. This move from him is actually reasonably likely to be a bluff, especially with me blocking top pair. If it is a bluff, given the board, it is most likely a bluff without outs. So, I trap call. He check-folds the river, so it would seem he did indeed make a pure leverage bluff

22k

3k limit six max, day two

Out in 46th with 39 paid.

Came back with 18.6k, and from that point, it was insanely swingy. I don't think I did anything wrong, all was reasonably standard decisions amidst the madness.

I went (roughly):

18k to 14k- Raise 66 on button, three way to 832. Both check call. Turn 832A checked round. River 832AT, BB bets, I fold.

14k to 22k- Raise KK on cutoff, flop K98. He check calls. Turn K973, he check raises. I trap with only 1.2 big bets behind. River K9732. He check folds.

22k to 16k- Blinds and small ones

16k to 30k- I 3bet KQ  from small blind, he 4bets, I call. Flop Q97dd. I, check-call. Turn Q97dd . I check-raise. River Q97dd . I move in for just less than a bet. Hoping for no snap. He tanks, and folds.

30k-40k- I raise QJ on cutoff, and call button 3bet. Flop J53. I check-raise, he calls. Turn J53T, I bet, he folds.

40k-26k- I raise 66 UTG+1. Flop KQQdd, he check raises, I call. Turn KQQQ. He checks. I feel  I have to bet. He calls. River KQQQ5 checked through, he has AK.

26k- 19k- I raise AQ CO, button 3bets. I call, as a semi trap. Flop J92. I check-call. Turn J922. I check-call. River J922K. Only river that I don't call. Fold.

19k-2k- I raise AJ from CO, big blind defends. Flop J42cc. He check-calls. Turn J42cc 5x. He check-calls. River J4252 r. He checks, I bet. He check-raises. Checkraise is brutal news. I have to call in limit. He has 42o.

2k- bust- I had Q2 in big blind, and got a decent result as got it in heads up vs Obst's AT. Board ran out JxxxA to bust me.

 1500 stud, day one

Really good start. Got 13.5k from 7.5k starting. Biggest pot was me starting   , with no clubs dead. Having none of your suit dead dramatically improves the chances of making a flush over the average two dead, and even does significantly over one. Five way limped, which is perfect.

Turn I get my card, . Amazingly, no other clubs fall. The AK bets, I have a no brainer call to encourage mutli way action, but everyone else folds.

On the turn I make for a pair of fives and a threatening board. He has AKJ rainbow. He bets and I decide to raise.

Its a multi purpose aggressive move. I can choose to take a free card on 6th on certain cards, in the likely event i am checked to. I am repping a straight (albeit it would take someone naive to believe I have that alot of the time), but a 6 or 7 would be tough for him to call down unimproved. And of course I have good equity against a pair of aces

Instead I make two pair. My board is . He shows AKJ6. I bet, he calls

River I hit a disappointing , to remain as two pair(no more clubs ever did hit the board  ). Big decision on river action. If I check and he bets, its very close to a fold. It is of course now heavily against me that I have repped this strength from fifth street. If he is an unimproved pair of aces, he should at least think about folding despite the pot size. If I check and he bets, I should think about folding.

Because the decision if I check would be close to a call anyway, it is right to value own myself potentially, and i bet.

He calls and mucks. Great news. The whole table seemed surprised that I had bet "just a 9" but I think its right.

Actually now up to 18,500 for a mammoth start. Rolled queens held up
