Okay guys I've grinded like crazy with cash online and casinos
... and now i'm back playing live tourneys as well now in the mix
In the past I had family issues, wife being sick... but she's fine and supports my poker and now we are very happy in every aspect in life and everythings showing. So now it's my time to shine here.
So this is my tournament log and let you all know how I went in a tournament, how many people etc. Pub tournies atm this will be. I may add some online tournaments in the mix at a later date and some Battle of the tournaments hopefully in the future week. But yeh i'm starting to feel my way with poker again and I feel it's time to become.
So to start things off March 13th of a field of 110 I got out 1st LOL yes FIRST... i'm not here to lie about things, haha but the best thing about the hand was also the worst thing. You say how? well...
AA and I 3bet this guy and he calls... the board comes out Q T 2... I raise the pot and he re-raises me... Now this sent me alarm bells and I thought I was beat but I called.
Turn comes out and well BOOM I shove. he thought I had trips but oh well it happens. So (A) I knew I was beat great. But bad I knew I was beat and shoved so not good and what was worse my wife played first tourney with me live and lasted much longer than me... Anyways haha boohoo but I see the funny side and moved on.
16th March I came 9th out of 88 ... Alright I played well, did some awesome steals... Almost made it to the final table with just stealing the blinds... I got unlucky.
Blinds were really high compared to the stack sizesl, everyone was quite short stacked because that's how some of these pub tournies run... But yeh I look at J7 on the small button and it all folds to me... I shove all in because I feel 1 opponent and I can double up.. My opponent could have ATC and won't be afraid to call.
So now we got J7 vs his J4.... Wow great result... board comes out JT2 ... YES!!!!! 9... and wait for it.... wait..... 4 !!!! ARGHHHHH !
But 9th spot still an improvement.
18th March I came 5th made final table... Played on final table for an hour and played aggressive. I made sure I was a force to recon with and made ppl fear to play against me!... I Was playing to win and not afraid to lose.
1 hand I did lose half my stack.... SB vs BB ... I had 800k and the blinds were 50k - 100k.... folds to me and I look at J9s... BOOOM! great hand to make a move well I think it is, you can all add feedback with this hand because it's a hand I don't normally play like this but just recently added to my selection. So yeah BOOM ALLIN! get called with TTs from BB ... he holds oh well I think it should've been an easy steal but unlucky to run into PP's.
Same guy shoves all in a few hands later for 800k ... another goes allin for 150k... And I call with AQs.
I been noticing the same guy who called with TTs has a really wide shoving range from any position... so i'm calling, i'm not worried bout the other guy cause he's short stacked, so be it if he's got a great hand JJs+ but I know he's stronger than our main target.
I look at AQs and make the call..... our target has 33s and our shortstacker has TT.... well not too bad but we need help..
We miss the board and the tens triple up... arrgh! not upset though cuz I played great I think... anyways Friday night is my next tourney ... anyone think AQs is a fold?
