Jeffrey | Poker Articles, Poker Tournament

Submitted by Kochan, this article is a part of the Poker Tournament series.

So after barely playing since Monday I thought I would put in a solid MTT session on Saturday. Saturday’s really suck for online MTT’s because there are no special tournaments and the field sizes are at their smallest. So to combat boredom I thought I would just load up alot of tables including small buy in tournies I normally wouldn’t play.

Overall for the day I took a 2nd in the stars $27.50 and 2nd in the tilt 50/1/1 for 9k combined so can’t complain. Made a fair few tight laydowns preflop throughout the day but the most interesting hand I played was this one:

Full Tilt Poker Game #9463677032: $22,000 Guarantee (Rebuy) (71390749), Table 28 – 60/120 – No Limit Hold’em – 21:59:34 ET – 2008/12/12Seat 1: catchchase (5,515)

Seat 2: jocourier (16,327)

Seat 3: BADMAN STJ (5,655)

Seat 4: bdybldngpkrplyr (15,820)

Seat 5: QLA123 (7,410)

Seat 6: hattrick7339 (9,445)

Seat 7: AmazingMiss (8,820)

Seat 8: Kochan (6,530)

Seat 9: TreyGarcia (9,140)

This isn’t really the standard line I would take for this hand but I got thrown off by his pot sized bet on the turn. I figured that if he had a hand like KJ QJ J10 that would be a strange sort of bet and I would expect him to take a free card with those sort of hands on that board. Basically I thought his most realistic hand here is Q10/K10 which I think he shows up a much higher % of the time than anything else.

I played today as well because I woke up unexpectedly at 8am and there’s nothing better to do at that time of the morning. I wasn’t feeling particularly well so ended up donking out of the majority of tourneys and stopped adding at 930. I semi salvaged with a cash in the tilt 216 heads up tourney.

Gearing up for Monday bloody Monday!
