is an evening that should look like a lot of your poker night. Yesterday, I launched four simultaneous tournaments. This is the max I can do concentration levels, especially with a Laptop 15 « . (Note for later: buy a 27 « ).
I played the Top Shark, the € 5 Knock out of PS, the Open Evening on Wing and Top50 on Winamax.
I start right away no more frustrating: the Top 50
So that at the tournament, I was 3rd in chips, I finally find shortstack just place the bubble. At the same spirit, I had between 2 and 3 BB. How did I get here? Well, because of a succession of bad shot. First a pair of 10 against Ace Ace Ten affecting his pocket pairs that cost me a little too expensive and especially lost a huge pot with KK vs. JT. I raise preflop, call it. Flop: QJ4. I c-bet 3 / 4 of the pot, call it. Turn: K gives me a set but opens a fifth. I bet 3 / 4 of the pot and call again. River Ace check I call loser. (I know, I would have the fold). I could have survived if I had not chained the garbage. To tell you, I finally push the bubble with my QT 2BB best hand for a while. I insta-call with AJ. I hit a Q on the flop but an ace river concludes my agony. A bubble on a € 50 is very annoying.
Top Shark.Here, I’ll go fast. I jumped at once that I did not see it coming. Spew in the state of the art. While I have a big stack and what to see next, a guy preflop limp before me. I raise the button with 88. Call it. Flop 227. Check it, I CBET, he reraise allin and I call. Frankly, at the time, I saw a pocket pair of 4.5 or 6. .. not far away, he had 99
€ 5 KO PS.
Not a bad tournament. It’s been two time I played and I like it. The structure is correct and the small bonus of € 1 per knock out is nice. I have not had much luck but I have not had any luck either. Basic tournament final. I have only 2 players left and I finished 108th on the ITM 966 players at the start. Note my last shot anyway because it does not happen often: I bust with a pair of 4 against a pair of 5 on a 542 flop. Set over Set, the plane is guaranteed!
open in the evening to end in « beauty »
Taking advantage of the mini bankroll I since my second place in the championship mate control, I enrolled in the open in the evening, a semi-deep stack tournament with € 10 and € 2500 guaranteed. The guarantee was in fact far exceeded with more than 3000 €. It’s crazy like poker is easier when you win almost every time we are faced preflop! I had the game and I hit. I climbed the final table with a comfortable stack. Then came a sudden really amazing, you say what you think:
The short stack at the table push allin. It is just call a player who has a stack in 2 / 3 of mine. I am last to act and I QQ. I hesitate to shove allin but I see no point to my stack while a nice recovery in this kind of configuration should convey the third player that I have a big hand and I want to isolate the short- Stack. But that player decides to call my bet
The flop is terrible to see: AKX. We check like fools to the end to finally see that the short stack has an Ace, and ugly that call my 3bet KQ for a pair of K that beats my pair of Q. How would you negotiate what you spot
After this time, it’s not complicated is the desert. The good big journey as we all know. Except that final table, it hurts the ass. On the last stroke, I in BB. The guy with whom I have the history above, limped from the button (glop). I raise well as necessary and call in position. The board has a baby flop with two clubs. I must have no more to push allin, which is about 100k in a 100k pot. Unfortunately, I insta-call by , one of the worst hands on which I could fall. No miracle and I bust fifth for € 180
