Thur 23rd May - £50+6 Deepstack Freezeout - 2/38

Yeah, came 2nd. Didn"t deserve to. First time in a long time I"ve run significantly above EV (now I know how the droolers feel). Only bit of my game working was value betting.

Even chip 4 way for £400 when 2nd in chips though only a shade above average (all of us v close), with £88 extra for the winner. 2 good players and 1 dreadful player, normally would prefer to play on but was taking me 3 peeks at my cards to differentiate between spades and diamonds. Ended up losing heads up.

Bit more awake so can say a bit more about the tournament.

Timing was off all night, and given I was on tables against opponents I"ve had a fair bit of history with it was a pretty funky night. Being results-orientated I always seemed to 3b/4b when it was wrong to, and bottle the opportunities when it was right to (though not 4betting 23hh on an A56r board can"t ever be too wrong!). Fortunately the tournament has the best casino structure I"ve ever seen - the average stack going onto the final table was over 40BBs, and I had over 70!

The major key hand was at 600/1200, two limps from weaker players, I may a big iso raise from the SB to 6400 with 88, and the BB (who thinks my range is pretty wide at any time) asks how much I"ve got and then moves in for ~30k. It"s a pretty bleurgh spot, probably should pass but I make the call, get shown QQ and get there on K9675. He wasn"t happy, but it gave me a stack I could kick on with so perhaps it was the right call even if in a bubble it was -EV? Probably justifying after the event, but I"ll take it! ;)

I have a major downer on the standard of local casino players - but plenty of good ones floating around yesterday, so was a properly fun tournament even if I didn"t play my best.

Cheers Gordon, however...

Sat 8th June - £50+6 1R/A Link game - 40/56

Nearly didn"t play it, was up in London for a mates birthday. Bit cheap so booked the coach up and back for the Friday. Get up fine, couple of hours karaoke, then head back - when it"s then pointed out that I"ve accidentally booked both legs for Saturday, not Friday. Feckers let me get up, and with the coach fully booked it looks like I"m stranded in London at 11:30pm. Fortunately a few people don"t turn up so am let on - unfortunately for you guys this hasn"t worked well for the stake.

Tournament got disappointing runners, only 160ish across all 4 sites, only just making the £15k guarantee. Both Reading and Brighton were up against other tournaments however, and with the prospect of day 2 in Pompey they didn"t fancy it (who would?). It also has a reputation of a pretty rubbish structure, which somehow Grosvenor didn"t rectify, despite it being 2 days rather than 1, and starting at 2pm rather than 4.

Anyway, spent most of the first 3 levels improving to the 2nd best hand. KT with the Ks, open CO, weak-passive button flats. Board runs out A7765 with four spades, button has A7 - played incredibly slow so I unavoidably pay him off. Next rotation I open A7, he flats Q9o, board KJT - don"t lose any money on that one. Flop OESD+FD on J8242 board, triple barrel, miss and villain holds on with KJo.

Go to the break with 10k of the starting 15k (two bullets of 7.5k, so life taken as expected). River a set against a competent player who pays me off and steal upto 18kish, then...

At 150/300, click CO to 600 with 54dd. Both blinds call. Flop 9c 6s 4h. I c-bet 700, SB calls. Turn 5s. Check, I bet 1900, SB calls. River Js and he donks 1500 which I snap off against his K7ss - interesting reverse float.

At 200/400, v Lag friend of mine clicks the button to 800. I jam effective stacks of 9k with K9o, get called by A2o which holds, leaving me with ~4k. Double with KJ v QT next hand.

Drop half of that iso raising a serial limper with A9, he"d spent the day limp folding out of a small stack, so obviously this time he limps shoves his 8BBs with QQ. Then repeat for my last 5k against another similar villain, who this time has KK vs my J8.

Never actually saw a hand. AT on the button was as good as it got (and I should"ve folded that pre).

That concludes this stake - thanks all for your support. Glad there was a return!
