Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

Oh that's weird I was 6 tabling most of Sunday then when I re-regged didn't really think about it just regged all s6max etc.

Weird because my tables were set up so max 8 could fit on screen but I guess I was either just busting or completely forgetting! But either way a rule is a rule and I'm sure that playing less tables really helped me focus and get a nice score so sure, what's your stars sn?

Playing less tables ftw, even have a new tag for the mass multitablers or for guys who mix hs with ls it's really v bad

So why that? What do you call "ls" in that case, <$55?

TD season finale was pretty good. Kind of makes me happier that I watched the full season.

Any news of season three being given the green light?

Yeah like mixing 21sko with 109r. Or stuff like big/hot11 on anyday, especially a Sunday is really bad. Even if you have a 300% roi it probably isn't a good idea!

Just in my opinion of course. A lot of people do things differently and succeed. Freshod plays heaaaappps of tables and crushes for example but the vast majority of people performance levels go wayyyy down. If that's just playing too tight, not defending their big blind enough, not making intensive notes on opponents or most often using bad 3bet and turn sizings.

I've often seen guys playing the Milly on a Sunday, a few other big boy games and then a bunch of $2.50 180s!

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

That's kinda differenT. Nobody should really skip the milly, it's the one you just have to play. If you can beat 180s you v likely can beat the milly too and opportunity cost is pretty high not to play it. Taking shots at milly is good imo even if not taking big piece of yourself.

Think Stars TLB is a good justification for doing it. But that's not in play for the vast majority of people who are mixing stakes in the way you describe.

hey mate just wanted to say I checked up on the Elliot Roe podcasts and gave your episode a listen! I loved what you had to say about extra lives in tournaments. You did a great interview with them.

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

Refrained from blogging this trip simply because I ran very bad in every tournament and didn't want to come across like a whiny bastard day in day out.

I've had such a great time this trip though and I'm very very very happy with how I've played.

Playing the €50k was a big jump but I have no regrets from that.

I have lots of crazy hands from the week, will do a hand/post separately and then people can critique/evaluate etc.

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

€50,000 Super High Roller Barcelona

There's 20 left and the very weak initial field has whittled down to mostly professionals. On my table I have Igor Kurganov, Timex, Max Altergott and a few Belarusian guys.

10k/20k/3000 blinds, Max Opens from the low jack to 45k, I defend the BB with A8s

Flop is Q55 (pot 130k)

Max cbets 35k, I call

Turn Q558fd (pot 205k)

We both check

River Q558A (pot 205k)

I bet 165k, Max puts me all in for 275k total.

Thoughts on this hand are that I really don't know Max at all. There's a chance he knows who I am. Igor said he had read my Monaco trip reports etc and I think these guys are good at that stuff. I had previously bet pot against timex i a spot I was probably perceived to be over bluffing that I didn't show down and in general is expect him to worry too me about me turning qx into a bluff/having 5x/turning Ax into a bluff and check back Ax hands. I also didn't know if I should definitely c/s river for value if he bets etc etc

Basically I assumed my image to these guys is "try too hard, bluff too much" and if he had Ax he would never ever fold and I didn't expect him to bluff super frequently.

When he went all in I was super super confused.

Value hands

5x, bets turn for sure on this texture
QQ, checks flop?
AA, bets turn?

So it seemed like if he had got to the river with a value hand it's super super likely that he has played it non standardly against me for a reason. So now I have to work out why he is playing exploitatively against me here for a higher ev line than betting turn. It's very unlikely he has 5x, AA here ever because of SPR and the ev of triple barreling those is too high.


So he has to either have 88 or QQ or he's bluffing. I block 88 hard. And QQ very likely checks the flop.

Now let's think of some bluffs? His bluffs I could expect here would be something like 98s. Cbet flop std, pick up pair, check. Turn hand into bluff on river. If he knows I like to make hero folds too then he could be even more likely to do it.

So I have to work out is he more likely to expect me to make this ridiculous hero fold on the river or is he more likely to play some kind of hand explorative because he expects me to do something crazy.

I have no idea tbh. Eventually after less than 3 minutes and my first ever €50k with 5 people to the €90k min cash he called the clock on me. Yes I was getting an amazing price and the pot was huge compared to my stack but I play very quickly in general and I never take unnecessary tanks. I think he should have given me longer.

In the minutes time I couldn't give myself a good enough reason to call and eventually folded.

As far as ranges go I'm not that far up in my range. I have AA, 5x (lots of combos), 88. Sure I block aces and 8s but I also block perhaps his most likely bluff combo (8x)

What do you think? Pot is 205+165+165+105+105 = 745,000 and its 105,000 for me to call. I'm either left with 5bbs or I have close to 40bbs coming to the money.

Wug?

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

c/s river.

as played your analysis is spot on, but where you are in your range doesn't matter that much when he is so polarized. A8 going to be a better call than 5x just because its blocker effect on his value jamming combos(unless he takes this line with 5x non zero % which is unlikely since they should be in his bet/bet/jam range(his nutted combos that dont block your Qx should be))(oh and also assuming he doesnt turn Ax into a bluff, cuz that would change things dramatically). Have no idea about villain but as a default i dont think people bluff here enough, still tough to not find enough bluffs to make it a call(doesn't take many). Not a mtt aficionado so cant say how the bubble and mincash affect the ev of your call/fold.

GL.

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

I.m a huuuuge mtt fish. But instead of opening yourself up to this spots on the river why not c/c river and pick up the pot without any tough decisions? Or bet something like 35k and smile at him afterwards ) I.m sure you try to go for the max ev spot but is it so wrong to sacrifice that for only one hand in your First ever 50k with 5 to the money ? I.m not sure why I even posted but I hate seeing you in spots like this where you.re being put to the test soo late in big mtt.s .

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

After he cbets this size - and presumably has a relatively depol range to go with it - I guess he should expect us to have a betting range and a xr range on this particular river. With this in mind, it's quite possible IMO that he could interpret using this size for a betting range as bluff-heavy, and thus conclude it's +EV to turn all his random crap into a bluff.

That'd be how I'd justify a call anyway - though FWIW I think bet flop for this size makes a lot of sense with QQ.

Where can I see a complete list of the high roller? Have googled but the EPT page and pokernews are worthless.

I agree with this but I'm a fish as well lol and no where near your level.

As played it's pretty gross spot but I think folding is best even though it sucks.

Hand is played very well, pbb flick in a call now, it's very hard to deny these odds and thus make a huge mistake

I think bet/check QQ or 55 is pretty neat. If he expects you to be trying to hard or bluffing at a higher frequency or whatever.

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

Such an awful spot. Super ambitious for him to bluff with the amount you have behind relative to the pot size but if there is even a small chance he's bluffing or he knows you like to make hero folds I don't think you can ever fold getting this price.
