Trip Report 6/5/19 to 6/29/19. WSOP, cash games, California, hiking, amusement parks, and more

Sup Twoplustwo,

At the airport now heading to Las Vegas. Long time lurker; figured I'll contribute with a TR. I'll post HHs too when possible. Let's see if I get the pics right.

Shoes:



Roll:



Roll has around 7000. 3600 for cash games, 1500 for Monster Stack, and the rest for meals and fun.

I'll be in Las Vegas until June 14. I'm renting a car that day to drive to California. Then on June 21 I drive back to Vegas until June 29 when I fly back home. In Vegas I'll grind cash games and play the Monster Stack event on June 22. Although this is LVL, I'll report about California when there (more poker, hiking, Hollywood, Six Flags, etc.). Hope the mods are ok with it since if I don't, the thread will be silent during that week until I get back to Vegas.

Oh and, feel free to contribute to the HHs. See ya all in Vegas as round 12PM.

Also London to New York via overnight stay in Dublin doesn't seem optimal either, but a lot cheaper.

Thanks! The signal at the table I was atwas bad, but I cashed out. In for 300 and out for 500. Good start.



At one point I was at 640 but I lost 95 with AhQs. Raised 16 pre and villain called. Flop was 9c Th 2h. Since he was a shortstack (81 left) I put him All-In. Didn't pair my Ace and you guessed it, he had KK. The very next hand same villain calls a river bet with King high on a board with 2 Aces; he lost to AQ. Another hand same villain calls a river bet with a baby flush and loses to a higher flush, then he says "If yoy would've gone All-In I would've called". I believe him. What do you all think?

Thanks, I'll give it a shot.

So, just came out of Ph and I lost 570 to the same drunk tourist. I didn't though so that's great. I have my opinions regarding the hands I played, but I'll post them in HH format to hear the opinion of the posters.

In all hands I forgot to write out positions and chips remaining. Villain is a drunk tourist being loud, but I found him amusing. When I arrived he was raising ATC and shoving the flop.

Hand #1

Hero JJ: 12__Call
Villain drunk ??: 65
Everyone else folds

Flop Th Td 8h

Hero: Check__Call
Villain: covers All-In

Turn 2d
River Qh

Villain shows KQ and wins

I think this hand played itself. Villain rarely has a T here given he was raising ATC. Just a bad beat I suppose. Thoughs?

The following hand occured after villain slowed down a little bit but still overvaluing Aces with any kicker.

Hand #2

Hero AJ: 12__125
Villain drunk ??: 25__Call

Flop Jd 2h 5c

Hero: Check__Call
Villain: 100

Turn 7d

Hero: Check__Call
Villain: All-In (I cover)

River Ts

Villain shows J7 and wins

So here he put me All-In on the turn. But given my hand and his tendencies, I think I made the right long term call? Thoughs?

I quit the session after this hand

Hand #3

Hero AhJh: 25
Villain: Calls

At this point the effective stack size was around 250

Flop: Qd Th Ad

Hero: Check__Call
Villain: All-In

And villain shows KJ for a flopped s8 which holds. I think I played this one bad. Maniac or not, he overbet significantly. I didn't even put any though on the call. I guess I felt entitled to beat him and that's why I called. Thoughs?

I'll get the positions and stack sizes next time. Thanks in advance!

Just coolers against the drunk guy. Frustrating, but damn I love drunk guys!

Yes, fold AJ facing the overbet donk shove. At best he has a good draw and it's a coin flip situation, at worst you are smashed.
