Home game last night
Just thought it's about time I actually made a poker thread!:
Organised a home game last night, 7 of us in total. Most of these guys/girls learnt the game rules etc from me, and none of them play online(apart from Liz). But, we are all looking at playing in the cheap local rebuy mtt at our casino, so I wanted to do it properly.
(By the way, it was very cheap, as most of us are on low wage)
So for the first hour it was a rebuy, we all started with 2000 chips, when you hit 1000 or less you could rebuy. first 30 mins the blinds were 10/25, then the next 30 they were 25/50. I rebought 3 times, so did most of the others. After the hour, it changed to a freezeout, with the blinds doubling up every 20 mins.
Payout was top 3, 50% to winner, 30% to 2nd, 20% to 3rd.
Key hands in rebuy: Board was all hearts, Q high. One player had the King, another had the Ace(rigged!).
Another board was kk998, one had a king, one had a 9.
In the freezeout, i went down to 1600 chips, with blinds at 100/200, I then proceeded to get AA and won, then 2 hands later had JJ PF, with a J95 rainbow flop, made a big chip improvement with those 2 hands.
Game actually last 4 hours+, I finally finished 2nd after me and Jen made a deal, she had more chips so took slightly more money, we done a showdown all-in, her 93os beat my QT with a 9 on the flop. Liz bubbled at 4th, Jess came 3rd, so 3 women in the top 4!
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the schedule, as we normally play 30 minute sng's, I made a profit of 5 times the original buy-in, so was happy.
We're all looking forward to playing in the casino now, as their mtt rebuys follow a similiar pattern to ours.
