Fun day Sunday at the G

My one regular tournament at the moment is the 4pm start at G.
25,000 chips, plus an extra 2,500 for regging by 3.45 and a structure that starts slow but gets pretty quick later. It"s major USP is that generally it ends on the same date that it started Smiley

Mostly it"s the usual story, 7 or 8 limpers reduced to 4 or 5 to the flop after a raise. Three bets are rarer than hen"s teeth, and tend to signify Aces, or occasionally Kings, but don"t expect people to fold.

Last night was a bit more fun...

Hand 1 50/100
I open QJ from the cut off to 250, Button raises to 700, I call. Flop is Qxx I check call 1050. Turn K, I check fold to a 2300 bet. Villain flips 42 off "like a boss". I pay no heed to it other than to ask "was that good?" in a bored tone.

Hand 2
6 to the flop I call A8dd all but completing the action after a small EP raise.
Flop A86 fd  
I check call a c-bet, as do three others
Turn is a 2 making two flush draws on the board
I check raise and  three of us see the very brick like J on the river
I lead and villain from hand 1 calls me with a J having missed his flush
He justified his call by saying that having bluffed me earlier he thought I was going for revenge Smiley
Pot size? Just over 20k.

Hand 3 100/200
My button, the two students to my left start to discuss how they will play BvB. It"s going to involve a raise, 3bet and a 4bet apparently.
I tell them it won"t be BvB because I will be raising if it folds to me.
Sure enough it does fold to me and I open ten deuce to 425
SB makes it 800
BB raises to 1550
I make it 4100, SB folds and BB looks affronted at the fact that I"m not sticking to the plan.
I say, "yeah, it was all a bit of fun, and I was going to raise any two here, but then I looked at my cards"
He had me dominated as it happens with Q2 , good job he folded Smiley

My evening ended early when having lost with AK v44 I then failed to outrun pocket sevens twice in three hands.
High hopes on the first run out where my K10 hit the 10 9 8 flop, but the inevitable 6 arrived on the turn.
KJ didn"t get even a look in

Must improve my flipping skills.

btw

Will Kassouf?
I know he"s a pain in the backside, I"ve been on a table with him in full flow, but I have to say that from what we"ve seen on the coverage from the WSOP he"s a substantially more attractive human being than the po-faced Josephy, Vayo, Hallaert et al.

Kassouf was massively irritating, but no more irritating than the "y" needlessly stuck on the end of josephys last name.

Hand of the day from my evening at Genting Newcastle.

GPS

Lots of limping, and limp calling

6 limpers at 100/200
BB makes it 5200 and gets a call from the Grand Central Station in seat 2

Flop 876
Bet call 6000
Turn 9 (two spades on board)
BB all in for c12000
Called by A6
BB has AQ spades and misses on a non spade 8 on the river....

It was only £220 to enter so I guess we have to expect this to happen...


Did I take advantage? I wish!
A combination of poor starting hands, horrible run outs and some poor decisions left me to jam Jacks, which fell to A10.,,
