Please expand??? where were u playing derek??
I was playing at the Sky Poker event at Asper’s in Newcastle.... ok a quick summary... well I’ll try to make it quick ;-)
Tournament was well run as usual and by the 1st break I was doing well at my table and hoping not to be moved.
A couple of levels after the 1st break all was good... has around 21K with next largest stack at the table being about 11k and everyone else very short and I’d pretty much had licence to steal whatever blinds and antes I wanted.
Then... (ye I know there is always a then... followed by a BB story... well this is only sort of)... so anyway - then I called Mr 11k’s min raise PF while I was in the BB with 69s the flop comes Q64 rainbow.... I check he bets a couple of thousand... I have the feeling he’s weak and push all in.... he insta calls... Oh... feck. Now at Sky events there is usually a delay when there is an all in and call as they call Tikay over with his microphone to commentate on the hand (he did a lot of running around in this tourney ) while we are waiting another player next to me asks if I’ve just had my hand caught in the cookie jar and I say it certainly looks that way.
So Tikay comes over and starts his commentary then asks for the hands to be turned over... I show my paired 6 and he flips over his..... AK.... !!!! wow
River K.... not so wow any more.
I then manage my usual tilt and go out in another 4 hands. One all in push from the SB with 9 10 called by the BB’s pocket Jacks. Then miss a hand before going all in blind on the next two hands and running into JJ (again) and AK.
I’ve not been too bad with tilt for a while now but I just didn’t handle this one well.
Anyway I say goodbye to the table (my tilting may cause bad play but I like to think I’m always polite at the table) and head for the bar.
More drink... more food .... and now off to the cash table to play a 1 / 2 PL hold’em game (strange it’s PL but that’s apparently what they play there).
So sit down with £200 and fid the game is a straddle / double straddle / and so on fest....
Fairly quickly get up to around £550 then lose a monster £700+ pot.... now this is not a BB story just a bad play story which I’ll keep short
Involved in a pot with 9s10s and a board of 7d9c10c..... there’s a bet and a call then I bet around £140 and there is an all in re-raise followed by a 2nd all in move... back to me...
At this point I realise my mistake and that I’m definably behind one of these hands but it’s only £87 more to me and the pot is well over £600... oh well I call and the hands are flipped over.
I was not behind one hand I was behind both... and not how I expected... one player had 6 8 for the flopped straight with no flush draw and the other had 8 J for the higher straight and also no flush draw.... weird. Anyway the upshot was that I lost the hand which actually ended up being a split pot on the river.
So back to tilt again and within the next 30mins I lose everything I had sat down with.
Not wanting to tempt myself with what money I had left I head off to Tiger Tiger for another few pints and to watch the Newcastle nightlife go by.
So drove back this morning and journey home:
Was getting hungry so pulled over at Gretna for something to eat and when leaving got pulled over by the Police for speeding... another £60 loss for the weekend and 3 points to go with it.....
Oh and to make matters worse I couldn’t avoid a little rabbit that was sitting in the middle of the road and heard the dull thump as it hit the underside of the car.... I hate that... if it had only just stayed still I think it would have been ok.....
So there’s the quick summary..... I don’t post much cause I ramble on too long..........
