Well.....

Last year Scottiie Nguyen played this tournament and every year they apparently get a Poker "celebrity" to play it, so this year they got Greg Raymer. 

Knowing my luck,  his big ass will be in seat 3 and I'll be stuck in seat 2. 

Does he still wera those fucktarded glasses?

Played a fun hand at $1/3/6 live.

Myself and button 1k deep to start hand. EP limper has 250-300.

 

One limper from EP. I make it 25$ from MP with KdKs. Limper and button call.

Flop J75ddh (75$)

Checks to me, I bet 55. Both call.

Turn 2h ($240)

Checks again. I bet 200, button calls pretty fast, limper tank folds.

9c river (640). 

I check, button bets 300.

Button has been a reg for years. Looks exactly like Howard Lederer. Is probably the only winning player at the table other than myself.

810 diamonds is my guess. hit his gutshot to make the nuts. He can represent a busted flush draw as a bluff to induce a call. Jack 9 rivered two pair and believed you had two overs with a flush draw.

This is a clear call imo, though it isnt great that you have the diamond in your hand.

 

I wouldnt have checked river. I would have bet half pot expecting to get paid by a J or stubborn TT and called a shove (knowing that I'm often beat but getting a ridiculous price). Once you check, you induce a lot of bluffs, which is good, but you also get a lot of check behinds from moderate strength hands that would have called another bet.

Whoa... Well, been there before. I only lasted a few hours when I played the WSOP $1000 Event many years ago.

Back to the grind.

I played in the Wynn noon tournament with $140 buy in.  Played pretty solid poker and busted out 2 or 3 people by the second break.  Was around 7th in chips.  Then it went to shit.  First hand back from break, idiot kid bets.  I do a 3x three bet.  He jams and I call.  He has KK and I have 10 10.  Ks hold up.  Cut my stack by 1/3 so I am still in decent shape.  Win a few pots and then get into it with idiot.  He raised utg to 2k with blinds a 400,800,800.  I am on the button with between 35-40k.  I smooth call with K9 off. There are 4 to the flop of 2, 7, K.  He leads out for 4k and I am the only one who calls.  Turn is a 9.  He bets 8k and I jam.  He tanks and asks for a count.  He has me covered by 200 chips.  He starts talking about how I river bluffed 10 hands earlier with pocket 4s and that if he is wrong he only has 2 outs.  That tells me pocket pair.  He calls with 10's.  You will never guess what the river was.....

Today I learned that when someone min check raises you on the flop and turn, your kings without a flush or straight draw is drawing dead, no matter how wet the board LOL 

I play 6 hours of cash. 

Some donkey was open shoving big preflop. 

$180 AKs vs A6h

heart flush (w an open ended straight draw) got there. 

$100 99 vs A2h

Ace on the flop Ace on the turn LOL 

I was only a 2 to 1 favorite on those....

I feel slightly less stupid for whiffing on both of them.

So, I busted Friday's $300 flight. But won $816 playing $1/$2 after.

Bagged Saturday. Came back Sunday, and finished 25th out of 478 entries for $837.

1st place was $29,277

Bust out was...I had 20 bb. Raised from the cutoff with KJo. Called by both blinds.  Flop was J,9,2  w 2 clubs.

Checked to me, I bet, sb shoved, I called. He shows K3c.

2 on the turn, Club on the river.

Nice job! 

I was reviewing my tournament results last night and I haven't cashed in the last 6 tournaments I played. I have been "going for the win" more recently and it is showing in my cashing results.

I know it is a fine balance, but I think I need to focus more on Survival than just pushing +EV spots to try to get a large stack.

Congrats!

I wish there were more live poker rooms than just in Daytona around here. Fucking Disney shuts down any gambling places in Cent Florida.

I finally gave on playing online about a year ago.

Orange City is closer off of 111B on I-4 and is a better room than Daytona. It's worth the drive. It's not badm but it is definitely reg infested.

I started talking to him and got a pretty good live read on him and folded. 

 

He showed 108hh

Popped into my local casino. Played some 1-2.

 

Table was running all day so there was some deep stacks already sitting at the table. Decided to buy short at $100. Keep it simple by short stack bullying with the all in jam. Lots of sour faces as I left the table just shy of a full rack.

 

Played for less than two orbits.

 

Second hand got dealt KK. 

 

Fourth hand got AA.

 

11th hand got AA again.

 

Went from $100- $417 in short order. Then proceeded to leave the table cause fuck poker ettiquette. Hit and run short stacked.most fun I have had in the poker room in a while.

jman - Nice, at least it is 40 minute levels and not 15-20 minute levels like the lower staked ones I'm used to playing.

I watched this video today from Evan Jarvis, it has some pretty good info...especially about bubble play:

Gripsed MTT strategy videos helped me so much when I regularly played MTT online.

Short-term and for entertainment, I don't see a problem. 

 

Long-term, I think it sucks if you're trying to build up a roll to play higher stakes, 

 

The rake/jackpot drop is capped at $50 dollars, you should be trying to play deep to get pots that vastly surpass that cap. 

1 $300 pot $7 rake/tips etc-$293 net. 

6 $50 pots  $42 rake/tips etc.-$258 net. 

Little pots pay the rake, big pots pay you.

I'm definitely about entertainment. I went through a few years in my life where I felt I could play poker long term for profit.  Used to frequent the poker boards. Twoplustwo, /r/poker, played regularly online. Read lots of books. Practiced GTO. Watched a lot of online videos. Large enough sample size to know I could beat 10nl and 30nl online.

 

 

  Came to the realization it wasn't for me when I experienced some negative variance that made me question everything.

 

That and the realization that in my city 1/2nl is the most common and even if i was consistent at 25bb/100 live I'm still making more working my day job. Not interested in moving or being that guy flying out to Vegas every weekend.

 

It's all for fun for me now a days.

Yeah I got hit hard when I first started playing for real again last year, ran pretty terrible. Lost in some rather epic ways. 

Live is its own animal and has its own pitfalls. 

Playing 1/2 or an irregular 2/5 for as your living is a bad idea.
