Nice TR and congrats on the 4th place.

The day 3 stuff was very interesting. The two lose calls you made:

1. Q10 vs 99 - I think this was too lose. Not because its 8BB but because of the proportion of your stack. I think you had a very good table position and this was a bad spot to call so much of your stack when you had lots of opportunites to chip up against the 2 TAGs to your left. If you got 35BB+ then no probs but you didn"t.

However your rationale was to Gamble - it worked and changed the balance of the table in your favour.

2. Hand against me - I think is also fold but probably more marginal. As I playing - you were really well behind my range there / especially given your image of calling light and my superfold strategy.  :D.
Also, I clearly wanted a call......

Of course my thinking here could be a leak in my game.......

Can"t argue with any of this Jason. I have pretty much said the same as you in the TR as well.

@noble and brendan.

Ty for the comments re: the QQ hand. I still hate my 4 bet fold and whilst that may have cost me less than "call 3 bet call c bet fold turn" I missed out on the best way to win a bigger pot, and by turning my hand into a bluff, I also may have been out bluffed (though I doubt it here)

The AQ hand feels much better now after your comments Bren. I still don"t like calling / fold to cbet at this stage but it is hardly a terrible move. In position, I"m all over this hand. In the SB, I"m happy with my cautious line.

This is hand played by a top online mtt"r, when I saw it first I thought WTF! thats weak but the rationale was to simply avoid a tough spot, which when you think about it, is smart.

overall Rob u have gone deep in this mtt and the ukipt thingy me do, u"ve binked a warm up and various other online mtts so just continue doing what u are doing fella... u"ve worked out what strategy works for u so tbh when others tell u it is wrong, then don"t listen to them... keep that bit of spew in your game imho, u are not playing optimally without some sub-optimal in your locker when u deem it necessary [if u know what i mean :)]

i think your post-flop game could be improved on, but thats just my opinion, u might think otherwise :)

well played Rob on your result. I played in the event and followed alot of the action on the live stream after busting out Friday night.

Easy for people to nit pick etc particular hands but overall you played a great game, rode ya luck went with your reads and picked your spots to put others under pressure very very well. Its impossible to play a "perfect" game and you had your bits of luck thats needed to go deep in comps like this but you also had the balls to make those moves and try and put yourself in a position to win

Keep running good as its mostly all luck anyway ;) and well played once again

This is a long one so cliffs at the start

cliffs

I finish 4th at GPS stoke for £18K
thanks to APAT/Des for the value added seat
a few hands were played that you may wish to comment on (rodders/noble/brendan)

Honored to be placed in such company :)

Can"t really add much to what the other two have already said tbh, great posts as always. Like the way Rob still looks for improvements even when he gets a result like that, this is why he is one of the best imo.

You playing at DTD Rob?

Folding AQoff in this spot is super standard.

That"s true, but not always easy to do. Saying that I do like the fold (and the one Rob made). It"s about stack size and position. With this stack size position becomes even more important.

AK is a tougher hand there as that really is too good to fold, but you are not delighted to be in the situation.

Do you think it"s similar to the spot Rob faced with his AQ?

What was the "silliness" from the dealer A9 vs AT hand?

I watched quite a bit whilst you were on the feature table ... a little before the A9 vs AT hand ... the guy to your left somehow managed to fold AJs vs your AT shove ...

Seemed to be a lot of weak play in the Genting events that I played ...

Great cash - great running - especially vs the mucked winning hand - running with the theory that volatilty evens itself out are you going to start mucking the winning hand??

What"s next up in your poker calendar?
