Out of this one in about 6 hours, but did play a bunch of interesting hands. I'm going to post pretty much everything I remember from memory without much comment and see if anybody feels like replying. So, here we go:
First table: Random T6 sponsored Swede/Rizen (seat 1), Joe Hachem (seat 2), Jeff Madsen/Gabe Kostner (3), me (4), a decent LAGgy internet pro whose name I forgot but finished 2'nd to shaundeeb in the yearly TLB (5), Victor Ramdin (6)
1)25/50 - Early on, I have a very tight image (Seat 5 is playing ~60/40 behind me) but just raised the last hand when Seat 1 raises. I 3 bet red AA from the small blind to 500. He calls. Flop 9
, I bet 725, he calls. Turn 2
, check/check. River 2
, I value bet 1400 (possibly better off betting more), he calls and mucks. 12K.
2)50/100 - I bust Jeff Madsen with a standard AKs > TT hand when he's short. 16K.
Interlude: Joe Hachem open limps the button. SB (Gabe Kostner) completes and I check some random cards. Flop 865r; Gabe checks, I check, Joe (who has about 6K?) bets, Gabe CR's, Joe tanks and eventually shoves, Gabe calls with 66. Joe has...J8o. The deck is short a jack because someone else folded one, but it doesn't matter because Joe gets there anyway.
3)I 3 bet Joe once already when he opens to 600 from the CO. I make it 2000 with AQ. He eventually calls. Flop K52, I bet 2625, he calls. Turn x, river x, check/check, his KQ is good. 10K.
4)I bleed down to 9500, then call Hachem's CO raise with A
in the SB. Flop AK7 with 2 spades; I check and Joe relatively quickly checks. Turn 7x; I lead 800, Joe tanks and calls (leading me to think he has very little.) Turn 5x, I take a few seconds and check, Joe checks behind JJ. 11K.
5)I still have a tight image when I raise J
to 600 on the button. Victor Ramdin calls in the BB and we see a Q
flop. He instachecks, I check it back. Turn x, he instachecks, I bet 800, he instacalls. River K
, he checks, I bet 2K, he tanks and eventually folds. 13500.
6)I 3 bet a bunch of times (most were real hands although not all), then bust a shortish stack with AK > A8. 20K.
7)I'm up to 23K playing well at 200/400 when the floor tells us the table's breaking. Meanwhile, we're 4 handed, with Ramdin, Hachem, and a DeucesCracked pro whose name I can't remember to my right. I raise KJo UTG; Ramdin calls on the button and the pro overcalls in the BB. Flop K53r, DC checks, I bet 2500ish, Ramdin snapcalls, DC folds. Turn 8; I second barrel 4500, Ramdin snapcalls again. The river bricks off and we check through; I lose to KQ. 15K.
8)My new table is a random Internet-seeming young guy I don't know (seat 1), random FTP pro (2), Anna Wroblewski playing everything with a nice stack and busy bluffing a bunch of it off to seat 1 when I sit down (3), a vaguely familiar face that I think is a well known online Euro? pro (4), me (5) and another vaguely familiar face to my left (6). For the first orbit, I fold some hands while Seat 6 raises from EP twice. At that point, I pick up 9
and open complete from the SB planning to call a raise and reeval; Seat 6 checks.
; I bet 600, he quickly calls. My read here is that PF = he basically cannot have an ace. Turn A
; I check, he bets 1200, I call. River Q
; I check, he bets 2800, I decide everything missed, hero call and lose to Q
9)I fold down to 8K when Anna raises UTG. The Euro in MP coldcalls the raise with a 7K stack, I find A
in the CO and snap shove. It's folded back to Anna, who tanks, counts out the chips and eventually calls with K
. Unfortunately, the Euro beats her into the pot with 2 of the other 3 aces, leaving me the 2K (5 BB) sidepot. I bust a few hands later.
Seems like I played most of this reasonably well, but I can't decide on a couple of them. Comments?
