20min queue and we are IN!

Approx 4-5% of the field make it through to day 2, so a long grind ahead today!

5000 chips, 25/50 blinds! Lets run this **** up!

Re: 3rd TR of 2017 - pic heavy - London Punter does LV + LA

So in the first hand i hear over a dozen "all in and call"

Chips ars flying everywhere!

I KO a guy after 20mins for his 1k with AA v Q10

Also make a flush with A3cc small pot

We peak at 7.7k

Then raise fold AJcc v a re raise and a shove.

Also go a bit with QQ 1 limper i 3.5x bb only caller

Flop K high i bet, he calls. Turn A...check check...river 2... check check he had K7o :-(

Then win 1k with 88
And shove 99 v a late open

Puts at 5.1k at near end of level 4.

Now just raised KK 3x v same loose fish. He calls. Flop A83ccc. We have no club, he donk leads 2x pot. We fold, he shows Kc.

Need to make a pair vs this fool, hate grinding bowls vs a table of loose fish.

First break 4.9k

Re: 3rd TR of 2017 - pic heavy - London Punter does LV + LA

Raise A9 furst hand and miss, next and shove 4.5k with 44 and 77 calls

We are out.

Would NOT recommend this tournament to anyone, its just a pure punt, much better structure games at other venues for this buy in

While the first day is a turbo all in fest to some level the 1 million prize and softer field makes up for that with a $500 buy in

Re: 3rd TR of 2017 - pic heavy - London Punter does LV + LA

Absolute rollercoaster ride here at 2/5 cash

Moved table 4 times, one thing to note, the dealers are BAD! 1 in 10 are decent, the rest clueless :-(

Not sure il give much time here.

Games wise, been decent, got money in a mile infront, get screwed a few times, in for a total of 2600, and currently have 2635, i cracked AA with 32dd and the turnt the nut straight with KQ v AJ on A103JK, and he shoves river after check raising turn.



Going for food and probably Wynn for cash games

Re: 3rd TR of 2017 - pic heavy - London Punter does LV + LA

cash games suck at the rio. bad dealers, games super slow, poor floors/organisation and people trying to angle shoot. better to play cash on the strip imo

Agreed

Wynn is my place of choice, Bellagio gets too busy, may give them a call and go on a list but the $500 max buy in at 2/5 is a little off putting.

So i wake up late, im by the pool now for a few hours, plan on going Wynn for cash around 7ish and probably playing the $1k at Venetian tomorrow.


Actually not going to the Rio much after yestadays experiance, and think the Wynn or other rooms are better value and a much better place to be playing cash than the circus at the pavillion room.

Re: 3rd TR of 2017 - pic heavy - London Punter does LV + LA

awful atmosphere for cash at Rio too - like, somehow the mtts in a huge room is exciting and OK, but for cash to be in an aircraft hanger just doesn't feel right

Re: 3rd TR of 2017 - pic heavy - London Punter does LV + LA

A disaster day

so it happened, a 4k loser today in the books. 2/5 started out ok at the wynn, won a few small pots, then all my big hands got SMASHED, hands of note...

JJ v 1010 on J 9 7 2 8, he check jams $800 on turn in a 3bet pot.
AK v KQ 3 way, i 4bet to 220 and get 2 callers, flop is K 8 5 dd, get check raise to 600, we go with it, turn Q, river K, he has KQo for the 3k pot shipped the wrong way
AA v QQ pre for $1.1k each window card Q

those are the main big ones, lots of small pots, amazing how loose people call you when you have a losing image

tomorrow, we will be playing the $1k Venetian MSPT, probably late reg a couple levels in, it has $2.5m prizepool, needs over 800 runners a flight average, so should be busy and lots of value.

Re: 3rd TR of 2017 - pic heavy - London Punter does LV + LA

Venetian $1100 event


We double our short stack with K5dd v AQ on KQ4 after closing action 4 way from the bb

Then JJ v 1010 double to 44k


Then lose AQcc v 77 v 86 on 7 5 4 9 ccc river 9.


Then Aj v Aj he makes J flush and just like that from 2x avg back to short stack.


Tilted isnt the word! Back to short stack bowl poker

i personally don't enjoy tourney poker. i admittedly am not a good short stack player. but you seem to be well versed in this format, and fwiw you have some folks here pulling for you. good luck bud

Re: 3rd TR of 2017 - pic heavy - London Punter does LV + LA

So we leave the Venetian, games really aint much action

Head to Bellagio, play 2/5, get our 500 up to 1300. Then get it in with JJ on QJ6dd flop, lose to AQ goes runner runner 4 diamonds on board.

We take our remaining chips and head to the 5/10

Decent game, in for 1000, have 1350 after winning a small pot with KK and AK


Send the run good my way!

Guy at the end of your table at V looks like the guy that was beaten up and dragged off the United flight.

I was thinking it looked like 2x Bracelet winner Bill Chen.

Other than being asian, Bill Chen looks nothing like that.
