Sweet, should be a top ten stack no? Nearly 200bbs to kick off a day 2 must be nice!

DTD Grand Prix - Where hearts are broken and dreams fulfilled.

Got to DTD, to see the place brimming with players and ready to rock.

~400 returned and I spot on Blonde that i am 5th in chips for Day 2....weeeeee, also get handed a payout structure sheet which was awful.

Had to get 12th to get 4 figs, and was just so so so flat until the Final Table was pretty shoddy.  Also meant that lots of players were happy to get chips in for stacks!! :)



We started off pretty poorly losing a 200k pot with QQ v AQ aipf, board runs out KhxhxThJ and i also have the Qh, so pretty sick but onward and upwards!!

TBH it took me a while to settle, and i was bleeding chips (lucky i had a bunch to start) until i hero called a villian on Q7852ss board when he over bets river...i call with KJ high and am good....



Some guy moves to my left with similar stack and tries to take me on in every pot.....generous soul.

We get into a pre flop war with K8ss v JJ, and see a flop of AK4.  I fire all 3 streets and he hero calls the river with JJ...thank you please!!

Lose a couple of flips, and bust a few players and before we know it we have 1.5m and am one of the CLs again.



To be honest the next few hrs are a bit of a blur, and we just kinda maintain until the last level of the day where it all goes on....

At 30k/60k/10k ,playing 1.7m, i open UTG + 1 to 125k with AK and the CO jams for ~1m.  Folded round to me and i call.....although its not on me, the BB has cards but as in the 1 seat, he has them to the side of the chips and i cant see them.....he then announces all in (900k) and my call stands...which is fine by me.

CO - 66
BB - 99
Hero - AK

Pot ~2.9m

Nice Equity for the CL going into the Day 3 i suppose!!!

Board - 3...5...8
Turn - ...........A!!!!
River - ..........6





Im left with 700k and then get a 1 round penalty for calling out of turn!!! Great - 180k out of my stack!!!  Just what i need!!

In reflection, its a weird spot, as i cant honestly say i would call if the BB jammed prior to me making my action..... i know its all in hindsight, but i had played with him for hrs, and he was tight....anyways....i just need to learn flips i guess!!!  Or hold when i bink.

I sit down and there are 11mins left of the day and i have < 10bbs now....i mean, how many times am i gonna be sickened at the end of the day.....???

I open jam 4/6 hands and get them all through....Bag up 1.4m and am in Day 2 with a chance!!!


Day 2 -

Most importantly was this:


Now en route to Notts i did everything i could to invoke good karma. I let people in, in traffic and generally acted as pleasent as physically possible.

This resulted in me missing FB breakfast by 10mins.....sigh

HOWEVER.......As i walked into FB, the Voilet haired waitress ( from the last trip - TG ) skipped over and said "I guess youll want Breakfast....wheres the rest of them?"  BOOOOOOOM

She couldnt forget TG obv, and got chef to make me Breakfast....this gonna be a good day!!!

I ate Breakfast and headed to DTD to take down the title.....forgetting one thing...."We Dont Win Flips!"

The first level went by, and was card/spot dead...as i either had rags in EP or by the time i had even squeezed a card there was an open and a 3 jam.....

Then 3 hands took place in a row that spelt the end of the tourny for this hero....

Hand 1:

Blinds 50k/100k/25k

Folds to Julian Thew in SB who jams 1.9m into Hero in BB.
We Squeeze K9dd and am playing 1.5m

We go into the tank and fold face up....and am shown KJ
Now i think this is really, REALLY close....but decide to fold and show Thewy what i am folding here....in the hope that he will now open he BvB and BTN v Blinds Open Jam range....

Thoughts....i dont mind calling it off here

Hand 2 - Very next hand....

Folds to Thewy again who open jams the Btn for 2m and we squeeze A9o but before i can say anything the BB (playing 5m asks for a chip count!!) FML now im in a spot....

I fold and the BB calls with 88.  Thewy shows KQ and wiffs the board....

Not sure if i levelled myself here.  As soon as i saw A9 i was snapping, and it was only the bb asking for a count that detered me....amazing no 1 rd penalty for him :)

Hand 3 - UTG opens to 275k from a 2.7m stack (ish) and i jam AK from BTN.......he tanks for an age then calls it off with 88.

Time to win a flip?? Ahhhhh nope!

6..3..2..4..8 run out.....Not even an mini sweat, not one bead!!!


Sigh, so another top 50 in the DTD Grand Prix is in the books....twice now, which considering the field size (with online runners et al) is pretty good i suppose........I guess ill win that important flip one day....gotta keep hoping else no point playing the game.

Pretty gutted, i embarked on the 2 hr drive.........that took 3.5hrs!!



Crash on the A44 meant that we were in an absolute standstill for over an hr....so all i could do in that time is follow Blonde Updates and torture myself even more....

Still other good news today.....Boss are doing another Vienna Deluxe at the Monteniso Vienna.....this is the best card room i have ever been too and i am 100% looking to qualify for this on APAT.....


Lets go....

Oh here is a pic of some bloke with a Milly in chips......






Oh and got told i look like Lou Diamond Phillips....WTF

Great Run Dann. Was rooting for you.

Wish I had been there to touch your head before the flips
