If you were at the PH tonight OP, I'm pretty sure I played w/ you. Care to give any word on what you look like? Or a ms paint of yourself?
6'2" 250, graying goatee. I've had more than one person say I look like Sklansky (to which my response is usually "Who is that?" then they ask if I know what 2+2 is to which my answer is "4?"). If I'm not repping the Packers I'll probably be in a flannel over a t-shirt. If I get asked if I'm a local I tell people I'm here "on a project"...which technically isn't a lie.
with the kk on the q97 board, why check the turn when the q hits?
Watching him play I felt it was most likely he called my flop bet with a Q or a flush draw so either way I went from way ahead to drawing to my K
and previous hands he had shown an tendency to bet small without the nuts. Which he did here betting $30 with his KQ (ya, that was a 2 outer) and giving me 5-1 on the draw.
Does show the real challenge of posting hands, there is so much more going on than just the cards. I guess I find it useful as I develop my "standard" playbook though.
Back to Planet Hollywood for some Saturday night action... and boy did it come early when before 1 orbit was complete the 7 seat throws a handful of chips across the table at the 2 seat after shove-raising all-in for $150+ with KJo on a T93 flop and catching a J on the river. Tempers flare and the 7 seat is ejected from the room. Too bad apparently was super loose and bad and did have a good sized stack.
A few orbits later the awful 8 seat (who has stood up every hand to read the board) calls an all in flop bet with AK on a J92 board, misses completely on the turn and river but sticks around to see his opponent table QT... then inexplicably leaves as the pot is being pushed to him. Floorman Chris chases him down and he returns a few hands later to distribute.
Just a crazy, insane table...
As Chris is chasing down Seat 8... I find A
in the sb. Well I figure this will be a windfall or a disaster as the chaos engulfs the table. I raise 3 limpers to $15 and get one EP caller - the 7 seat who just sat down this orbit.
Flop ($35): K
I lead out for $25 and V makes it $75 to go. I've got about $200 behind and V has me covered. Your play...
Had two interesting AK suited hands later that night. Table was very active with two friends on my right driving the LAG action...
on the button. The BB has $30 after taking a bad beat last hand. When one of the action twins raises 3 limpers to $12 I know how this is going to play out.... I'm going to smooth call the 12, the BB is going to shove for 30 with A2C, then at least one of the action boys will call and I'm going to drop the hammer and scoop it all. MWA HA HA HA HA!!
I smooth call, the BB shoves and all goes to plan... until the Lou Diamond Phillips look-a-like in the 1 seat limp-shoves for $96.
Weak-Tight LDP has shown absolutely zero speed over the last two hours. I fold and watch the board run out A
and LDP scoop with a surprising 88. Well played sir.
A few rounds later I pick up A
with $575 in a straddle pot in MP. Lou Diamond limps, the tighter action brother makes it $25 to go, I call and now the button makes it $75. Folded around to LDP who shoves for $175 and now the action brother over-shoves with $500. Uh, ya I can fold here. The button thinks for a long time before calling all-in for $275.
Action brother flips AA. Button flips KK. LDP keeps to himself...
Flop is a painful KJx and the button spikes his one-outer. LDP claims to have had QQ... Sheesh!
I rack up +$255 around 2:30AM.
Planning to play Wed, Fri, Sat this week. Will be a busy tax week, but should slow down on the hours after this week and I'll get back to a more full time playing schedule. Thanks for reading and all comments.
