Yesterday was not too bad for me all in all. I signed up for WWdN #12 OzCDN Invitational, a $10 + 1 semi-private tourney, and then had an hour to kill so I hoped on to a $.05/.10 Limit ring game. I’ve been trying to learn how to play limit as Sue and some of her friends want to head up to one of the casinos up in Milwaukee after everyone gets their tax returns back. I actually pretty much doubled up in half and hour and that left me with about 15 minutes to deal with the dogs before the tourney started.
I did not fare well in this one. I took some good pots early on then I just could not make anything work for me. My trips lost to flushes, straight to a higher straight, and a couple just getting out kicked. In the end, I went out a whole 40 minutes into the tourney to the person who ended up winning the thing, jk87.
I had a JT and made a nice 3x bet. I think jk87 called and the flop came TQ9. I did my 3x bet again and jk87 raised me. My stack was pretty damaged and pot was a decent size, I had a low pair and good draws so I went all in. After using up about ½ his allotted time, jk87 made the call and turns up 78. We were both on an open-ended straight draw and jk87 riverred a 6.
Oh yeah, during that tourney, a pop-up announcement for one of the .10 + 0 with $50 added tourneys poped up. I tracked it down and signed up for it. It started about 10 min into the WWdN tourney and was pretty distracting (all in’s every other hand, and if you’re not ready to bet at least half your stack on a hand then just don’t play it), so I just clicked ‘Sit Out’ so I could focus. As it turns out, they are super-turbos with the blinds increasing every 5 minutes so I was blinded out in like 515th place (of over 2000) before the WWdN tourney was done so I really didn’t get to play, but I did finish in the money and added .15 to my bankroll!!
Then I hit the $1 + .20 SnG’s. Finished my first one in twentysomething place (seven paid). The next one I played pretty well and was struggling to stay awake during the final table, but I did win that one and added $14 to the bankroll.
