and some more donkament stuff

I missed the KO tourney at Thursday since I did not realized it is already summer time in the US. Here we put the clocks forward at 28th March lol.

Therefore I had one of those cash sessions I just want to forget. It started with running meh/bad and then ended with me playing bad and lost a total of 5BI.... I felt totally crushed after this but put a session a few hours later in (was already Friday) and ran more or less break even while 2BI under AIEV. The funniest hand way by far when I got it AI on the flop 9QJ with QQ and ran into T8.... Today I ran a bit better and got it in on the flop with top set vs middle and bottom set for a nice 160bb pot.

The only good thin about the last few days is that I really opened my game but it seems not to work that good at the moment post flop...

So today was the last mini-FTOP I will payed this series. It was a $10+1 PLO rebuy which I thought was a good traning place to get into PLO.

I did not get any too great cards at any time and when I finally hit something I got no pay out.... Well, in one time I over played Top set on the turn 3 handed but what ever... I rebuyed a total of 3 times only for points and paid the add on for cash. I ran out of points and already invested 300 medals for buying points.

So we I was more or less card dead and got a bit short when I finally got a pretty good hand which did not played out like I wanted it:

UTG+1 (t4352)
MP1 (t13586)
MP2 (t22628)
MP3 (t13360)
Hero (CO) (t5950)
Button (t7188)
SB (t3260)
BB (t7290)
UTG (t19620)

Hero's M: 13.22

Preflop: Hero is CO with , , ,
5 folds, Hero bets t900, 1 fold, SB raises to t3000, 1 fold, Hero raises to t5100, SB calls t260 (All-In)

Flop: (t6820) , , (2 players, 1 all-in)

Turn: (t6820) (2 players, 1 all-in)

River: (t6820) (2 players, 1 all-in)

Total pot: t6820

SB had 10, 10, 5, K (two pair, Kings and fives).
Hero had A, 9, A, J (one pair, Aces).
Outcome: SB won t6820

I guess this is somewaht standard vs a short stacker but I just can not win a hand when I get it in as a 70/30 favorite (which is pretty awesome at PLO).

So I was really short and it did not take long until I busted out:

SB (t3502)
BB (t19061)
UTG (t24212)
UTG+1 (t20430)
Hero (MP1) (t3290)
MP2 (t12026)
MP3 (t43571)
CO (t3865)
Button (t11082)

Hero's M: 5.48

Preflop: Hero is MP1 with , , ,
2 folds, Hero bets t1400, 5 folds, BB calls t1000

Flop: (t3000) , , (2 players)
BB checks,
Hero bets t1890 (All-In), BB calls t1890

Turn: (t6780) (2 players, 1 all-in)

River: (t6780) (2 players, 1 all-in)

Total pot: t6780

BB had K, 3, 4, A (straight, five high).
Hero had 5, 10, 10, 5 (three of a kind, fives).
Outcome: BB won t6780

I think given my stake size this here is totally standard and I was at least a 53% favorite here.

Busting out in ~1.3k with a total of 4.6k entrants (top 450 got paid) is not that bad but I wish I could run better just one time....

So this series ended for me with a whopping ~$52 profit which is not the out come I was looking for lol. Well, at least I made some money and I am pretty happy with my play overall.

Now back to the cash games for the moment and hopefully I can end this month not like total crap after this week.


  1. keep up the grind and win one of those tourneys!!!! good luck!!!

  2. Thsnk you very much. The next mini-FTOPs are not far away (May) so maybe my time is then.

    As far as the grind goes it seems I have my first downswing of the year but hopefully just a little one.
