Win the button comp. Worlds worst player (one of them anyway) two to my right - getting lucky and gets LAG when stacked, so paying a few blinds too. He"s just called with QT on A9x to hit running KJ. Standard...

£25 Win The Button - 36/42

Well that couldn"t have gone any worse.

7.5k starting stack plus 10% early bird bonus. Win a couple of pots in the first 10 mins. 9c7c on 963hh flop 5 way. Stab, get two callers, running hearts turn and river but chop. Raise and double barrel KJ from MP on Axxx board to get to 9k. Didn"t win a pot after that.

Let me introduce you to Big Nose Pokerstars Al. He"s already busted his first entry within 10 mins, and gets moved to my table (two to my right) with his re-entry, replacing a nit. He"s dreadful, as evidenced by the following:

1) 25/50. UTG+1 opens to 200. 2 callers and Al makes it 800 from the SB with AJdd. 2 callers to see a flop of 663hdd. Al donks 1500, HJ calls, CO raises to 4500. Al flats pretty quickly and HJ dwell folds. Turn 9h. Al checks, then surprisingly tanks for nearly a minute when CO moves in for his last 1500. He eventually calls and obv binks the diamond against 65. Sigh, when he has chips he plays pretty much ATC.

2) 75/150. Al opens to 400 on the button. SB calls and I come along from the BB with 74. Flop K74, checked round. I donk 1/2 pot on turn J, called by Al. River J goes chk-chk after I get counterfeited. No idea whether he thinks he"s good or not.

3) 100/200. He flats a c-bet in position with QT on A9x vs a guy with about 15BBs. Naturally hits running KJ.

4) 100/200. One limper, MP shoves for 1200, HJ shoves for 2900. After posting 5 blinds in a row (the guy on my right has been moved and the two on my right are winning all the pots - all the guys on my left are tight-passive and pretty card dead) I"m pretty happy as it looks like I might not have to pay my blind. Until Alan colds on the button with A5o v KJ and AT. I"ve folded a 5, but doesn"t stop him getting there on AQ245.

He"s one of those people you look at and wonder if it"s possible to run better. I have to sit there incredulous, being disciplined, having to make small moves and play like a hero just to win the little pots when I brick for the umpteenth time - only to survive long enough to get it in good and get spiked, probably on the bubble. Yes, I"m ******* bitter.

Anyway, totally card dead, no spots either - not even Ax/Kx or some broadways/SCs to 3b light with and have some backup. At 150/300 we"re 7 handed, HJ opens to 800, Alan flats on the button. I move in for 5700 with AK. Orig raiser dwell flats with 88. 8 in the window on an 89679 board.

Didn"t take the re-entry given it was only a 25BB stack at that point - and should probably take the hint the poker gods are giving me (though I think they must be telling me I shouldn"t play - ever).

Surely the only way is up - and at least this is the little one on the schedule! Small victories and all that :)

Agreed, although, sat in my shorts, with a beer, listening to Bumble commentate on a test match. Life couldnt get much better unless Nick Compton announced his retirement from test match cricket.

£50 Deepstack Freezeout - 4/49 (even chop 4 way)

Well, the polar opposite of the above. Endless moaning seems to do it.

Was never all-in over the course of the tournament. Never had to get lucky at showdown, won most of my chips post-flop - for once when people played terribly against me they didn"t get there in unbelievable fashion. If I had a slightly marginal situation things would be on my side (i.e. 3bet AJ, get peeled by AT).

I.e. 400/800 Loose UTG limps (15k), UTG+1 (30k) limps, I limp UTG+2 (50k) with 99. Tight button (14k) dwell raises to 3400. Blinds fold and both limpers call. With over 10k in the middle I don"t mind taking the deal money and hopefully flipping with the button, so I effectively jam by re-popping to 36k. Button tank folds TT, UTG folds and UTG+1 snap calls his above average 40BB stack...with ATo.

Obviously I"m horrified, but actually win the flip (the only one of the four I would actually beat at showdown too). I"m staggered. 70k pot and I"m up to 90-100kish.

Went to FT as chipleader, didn"t really see much, got to about 350k at max but then went card dead for about half hour. When an even chop was proposed I wasn"t going to turn it down when I was the short stack - though we were all pretty close.

Took £545, and am stoked that the stake is in profit already. Dead chuffed as it"s my first half decent score for time!

£20 1R1A - 18/20

I treated this one like a freezeout, given just 13 runners sat down at the start (20 by the end of the rebuy period). Ended up taking £740.

Was basically card dead for the first 4 levels covering the rebuy period. Chipped up from 5.5k to 8k taking some pots without showdown.

Best hand I saw was AJ, called a raise in position (good as he had AK), missed and folded vs 3 oppos. Limped LP with 89, flopped A87dd, checked around 4 way, called a stab from the BB on turn 2d, SB also called, then managed to get some thin value on blank river vs 85.

Penultimate hand of the rebuy period was hilarious. 4 limpers to me at 100/200, I make it 1700 on the button out of my 8k stack with 77. Blinds and two limpers fold, HJ calls, then the CO moves in for 3.5k with KK. CO had only played a couple of hands, very passive, clearly inexperienced. I"m not in great shape vs her range but move in to iso as I"m miles ahead of the HJs range. He pretty much snap calls for his above average 7.5k stack with what he terms "suited connectors", i.e. Q3ss.

Board A6475. So from looking good to win the 9k side pot, then hitting my set on the turn to go huge favourite for a 22k pot (3x average), it all goes horribly wrong.

Leaves me with 475 at 100/200. Shove dark and everyone folds. I flip AQ, rabbit hunt and hit the Ace in the window. Standard.

With only £540 taken at that point I decide not to rebuy, they eventually took £740 but still not really worth it. 3 hands after the break I jam my 2.5BBs with Q9cc. Q3 guy in the BB calls with A7cc. Board xQxxA just to take the piss a little bit more.

Still, £40 more to be refunded.

Oh, and if you feel sorry for this dreadful, heart-breaking bad beat - then please make me feel better by liking and sharing my entry for the MS Paint ISPT Day 1 Seat competition!

£30 1R1A - 10/46

Nothing too exciting. Didn"t win a hand in the first hour to drop to 5k out of the starting 8,250. Took one rebuy and went to the break with 14k after raise, cbet, shove AJ on KTxx.

Won 3 more hands - all double ups!

43hh v J8cc on 632cc flop. I effectively 3jam flop and hold.
AJ v KThh on AA8hh. I open EP, 3 callers. Cbet 1/2 pot and call shove.
89 v 87 v J9cc on 853cc flop. J9 limps button, 87 completes. I check, SB jams short stack for 2xPot. I reship, get called by button and somehow hold.

Went a bit wrong after that, got put in a lot of marginal spots, including folding KK preflop (incorrectly). Villain had been fairly tight, never got out of line that we saw, seemed to slightly overbet his strong, non-nut hands. We both have 70k, over double average. He opens to 3k UTG at 500/1000/100. I make it 9k on the button (slightly bigger than usual as I expect a flat or shove). He then pretty much clicks it back to 20k. It"s so against his previous bet sizing, and when I can"t get a definitive physical tell I let it go and he shows QQ. Just an unfortunate combination of circumstances really - and everyone else at the table read him for AA/KK. I went with my gut, it"s usually right but unfortunately not on this occasion!

I picked up a double four flushing with A9 v shortie AK, shoved a few pots, then jammed 11x from the SB on the FT bubble with A3 into TT and didn"t get there. Left me with 8k at 3000/6000/500. Someone got knocked out 2 hands (which I"m forced to fold) later so I arrive at the FT with 7000 - obviously I draw the big blind!

Get it in with 73xx v K9xx v AcKs. Get my hopes up on Kx 7s 3s board but dashed on Js 8s run out.

One life not taken, so £30 refund due. Have updated 2nd post with current status.

Hey guys,

Apologies, but will have to scrub the Saturday game. When sorting out this schedule I wasn"t very smart in checking what I was already planning to do with friends - notably holding a Champs League/Froch v Kessler party.

With no guarantee on the comp and the GUKPT in Pompey it"s not likely to get a great deal of runners anyway - sorry guys for my ineptitude!
