re: Poker & My first casino tournament tomorrow
I felt pretty good after this tournament, especially after I predicted this one guy's hand, twice. First, I called his raise (2x the blind) with K/9 suited. Flop comes out 5-K-5. I bet, he called. I can't remember what came out next.. something that didn't matter. I checked, He bet big. I said, "Nice Pocket A's" and folded. He showed me his Pocket A's He was trying to pull me in.
The next time, I had K/J on the SB, and he checked his BB. Flop comes out J-10-7, with 2 hearts. I bet 2x the BB. He hesistated, then called. Another heart came out. I checked, he bet big, and said, "Nice flush"... and he showed me his flush.
That boosted my confidence a bit, even though I didn't place.
I'm going to try again on Sunday. $30 60-player tournament at 10am. They also have a WSOP
tournament in a couple of weeks (which I will not be participating in), and also one in late October (which I'm going to try to participate in).. 2 day tourney - $200 entry fee, winner gets a free seat to the 2009 WSOP Main Event.
