Well back to the rebuy tournaments for 2008. I have one trip report/room review typed up, but am waiting for one thing to complete it. It should be up in the next couple days from the $40 rebuy tourney I played last Thursday. I am thinking I will play it again this Thursday, but am not sure yet and depends on if I go up to Tulalip to play some live NL cash games. Due to feeling a little under the weather, I did not make it up to Tulalip last night for NYE. I am thinking that Thursday I may be able to get up there and get a room review done for them.
Update from Yesterday's Cake 1/2 NL Cash Session
So yesterday I played some NL cash on Cake Poker. It was such a brutal session losing $225 with 69s and a flopped nut straight on a 578 board to 46o when he hit running diamonds after we got all the chips in on the flop. That was the most brutal hand, but the rest was just up and down. I may have been playing a little more loose than normal which could have been part of the problem. It was just such an up and down day. Down $400 at one point then even. Down $200 and then up $100 and then down $100 again. I then finished down $125 after making it back to even it again.
Playing the $3 & $10 rebuy on stars tonight so look for updates below.
Stars $3 Rebuy
Worked my way up to about 8K during first hour, but then back down and finished at 5700. With the addon will start hour two at 7700. It was really an uneventful rebuy period as I didn't get much of anything going. More from hour two Hopefully.
About 30 minutes into Hour two I picked up A
and raise on the button to 600 at 100/200 blinds and am called by the SB.
I bet 1000 and am called.
I bet 1800 and he folds.
The next hand I am at about 7200 and pick up A
in the cutoff. UTG min raises to 400 and I reraise to 1200 in the cutoff. He calls
He check and I bet about 2/3s pot and he reraises allin. I called and double up to 14400.
End of 2nd Hour down to 12500. Nothing exciting happened after my double up except I was played back at by a large stack and had to fold on the flop.
Out....lost with QQ vs KJo.....I played the hand like a bonehead when the K came on the flop and I thought my QQ was good. I sometimes just play hands like a total retard....grrrrrrrrrr....I ended up being in for $18 so no biggie.
Stars $10 Rebuy
Nothing exciting yet. picked up A
but no action.
About 30 minutes into 1st Hour pick up A
in middle position and call an allin from one player for about 3500 and push in my 3800. An UTG player also calls and I know I am in trouble. Up against J
Up to 11.5K with 30 minutes left in the rebuy period.
I ended up finishing the rebuy period at 10.5K and will addon to get to 14.5K to begin hour two.
Chipped up to 27K with AK after hitting a K on the flop. Also won about 5K on a resteal from the BB when a late position raised 2.5x BB
Then dropped some chips with JJ.
Ended the rebuy period at 22K.
I must say I am not in to this tonight, because I am also busy playing mario vs sonic on the Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii. My Fiance and I have bet on who is going to do better. It is so adicting.
I am going to be focusing more this 3rd hour :)
Well I just picked up K
with 10BB in middle position and shoved. The SB called with less chips with A
Up to 35.5K
I am so addicted to the Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
Picked up A
UTG+2 and raised to 5500 at 1/2K Blinds. Middle position played move allin 16K more. I called and he Showed A
..........Giving me nut flush and the win
Up to about 58K with $$$$$$$$ approaching quickly and 368 left.
Blinds just went through me and I move tables. Pick up AQo on the button and raise it up to pick up the blinds and antes and move up to 62K
Down to 33K after I had to lay down JJ to a board 2
and a check raise by a big stack. He was called by another player and had flopped a set so was a good laydown :(
Towards the end of the hour was very short stacked and got up to 46K where I sit at the end of hour 3 with 176 people left. Going to need some cards to accumulate some chips. I have Octavian_C on my right with a good stack at 213K and a player who doesn't seem too strong on my right with 166K. I am hoping to pick up some chips quickly in this 4th hour. Octavian was abusing me with my short stack for the last 15 minutes. Lets hope I can pick something up here quickly as the BB will be coming quickly at the start of the next hour.
Was veyr short stacked.....HAd about 20K and picked up AA UTG+1...BB called with 69o and hit two pair to knock me out.
In for: $31
Profit of $64
Was out $18 in $3 rebuy so just a small profit of $46.
