Me and G-Man headed down to Rileys for the first ever $100 freezeout.

10,000 starting chips. 20 minute blind levels, blinds starting at 25/50.

The first hour and half was shambolic. NO hands whatsoever, i got AK and made a standard raise into a pre-flop family pot, everyone folded (i'd been tight) and i picked up the blinds. The table was loose, and more than a few donks were playing.

Just before the 2nd break, i got dealt K8 diamonds, i had around 5900 left and i decided to see a flop. I called for 800.

3 players.

Flop came: Qd - Jd - 4d

First player to act leads out for 800.

Second player folds.

It's on me. There was no doubt in my mind what i was going to do, i was happy to have picked up the pot right there but i put on a little acting show - making it look like i really didn't have anything.

All-in...

First player calls and shows 97 of diamonds. He's dead.

I know had around 13,700 in front of me. Average was 12,300.

5 hands in after the break, i picked up AA in the SB.

The guy next to me had been raising ANYONE who put in a small raise initially...

There was me, the guy next to me and UTG still in the pot.

I raised it 2000.

He raised all-in for 23,400.

UTG calls.

I call.

BB shows JJ
UTG shows AJ (nice)
I flip over the Rockets.

Flop comes: 9-9-A (BINGO - deck crippled)

After that hand, i was up to 35,000 in chips. And the average was around 16,000.

From then on it was just solid play, i eventually went out to an hand i mentioned in another thread, where my AQ couldnt out draw the chip leaders 77.

Was a good tournament, i really enjoyed it.

Hey Pez,

This was a live tourney - the triple up was ultra sweet at the time.

No idea why the donk called with AJ, but it was nice to see :)

I am registered over at FT, but i haven't played for cash over there. Mainly because it dosn't accept my cash card lol

I am also at work while 5pm which would be 12 noon in the USA, but i'll be playing from 5:30pm onwards if you fancy a game on pokerstars mate?
