This was my first ever WSOP bracelet event although I am an experienced live tourney player.
I was up to 10k by the first break just from picking on the weak/tight/scared players. I had no idea there would be so many of these guys in this field. However, once they all busted out by 3 or 4 in the afternoon, their seats were filled with much better, much more aggressive players.
In a previous hand with villain, I raised in UTG+2 with A-Qo. Blinds 100/200/25. Villain is the only caller 3 on my left. Flop is 10-10-8. I c-bet 650 and villain raises to 1400. I 3-bet shipped 4500 more for value honestly believing I had the best hand. He folded.
I haven't been very active (card dead) and a lot of my opens (steals) have been 3-bet anyway. Villain has been very active, doing a lot of opening, 3-betting and the occasional 4-bet in position. Between him and the guy on his right, who is almost as active, I feel handcuffed as I'm always one of the more active players on the table.
Blinds 150/300/25. Villain raises to 750 UTG. I flat on the button with A
I started the hand with 11k and change. Villain has 20k and two of the other laggy players are also around the 15 to 20k mark. Both blinds also call.
Villain c-bets 1400 into a pot of 3k+ after both blinds check.
