You Got A Deuce?

Hero UTG (covers) Racist Aces
Villain 1 UTG+1 ($60.52) AQos
Villain 2 SB ($179.29) KQcc

UTG+4 posts $2. Hero opens to $8, UTG+1 calls, BTN calls, and SB calls. 4 ways to the flop.

Flop ($34.20) Q22ddh

SB checks we bet $12, UTG+1 calls, BTN folds, and SB check raises to $36. Not loving it but if he's got a deuce then good for him. We call, UTG+1 jams for $16.52 more. Can't raise so SB calls and we call.

Turn ($189.56) 9s

SB checks which makes me feel good about our hand now. We put him all-in for $118.77 and he calls.

River ($431.10) 8d

They've got one out between the two of them and guess what? I miraculously hold on!

Closed one table to open another and it's just black and I can't close it. Weird.

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

Can't Bluff Me!

Hero CO (covers) AJos
Villain UTG+2 ($274.92) Kd7h

UTG+2 limps and we raise to $8 only villain calls.

Flop ($18.05) A32sdd

We both check.

Turn ($18.05) 8s

Villain bets $3.62 and we call.

River ($24.92) 7x

Villain bets $7.01 and we raise to $24.02, villain then 3bets to $77.60. Strange. What could he have here? We call and see the bluff. Nice try buddy.

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

Results 5/25: +$310

I played a $162 and a $55 MTT and busted both. And started down after losing with that top set vs two flush draws hand. Still managed to come back and book a win so I feel pretty good about that. I feel like my play overall was very good today. I'm back on track.

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

Flopping A Boat!

Hero UTG+2 (covers) AA
Villain 1 UTG+1 ($46.98) J9os
Villain 2 SB ($247.50) ??

Villain 1 limps and we raise to $8, SB and UTG+1 call.

Flop ($24.70) 888

Villain 2 leads for half pot $12.35, villain 1 calls and we call.

Turn ($59.90) 2d

Villain 2 bets half pot again $29.95, villain 1 calls all-in for $26.63 and we raise to $87.57 and villain 2 calls.

River ($264.82) Kx

Villain 2 checks and we bet $122.50 and villain 2 folds. Probably should have sized down on this river and bet ~$60-80 instead. On blank rivers I think my bet makes more sense but it's too easy for him to fold small pp's here.

Yeah thanks for the heads up. I'll be careful if I go the pokerbros route with an agent.

Yeah I would have folded AJos to a 14x EP open for sure. Easy peezy. Only gonna get away with that once though, if someone starts spazzing out I'm definitely not fold QQ to 14x opens.

This hand should have been titled 2 Villains 1 Out. I messed that one up big time!

Let It Rip!

Hero UTG (covers) AQhh
Villain SB ($126.67) AsTc

Hero opens to $6, UTG+2 reraises to $10 total. SB and BB call, we call too.

Flop ($38) AQTddd

Villain rips it in for $116.67. BB folds and we raise over him to get the UTG+2 min raiser to fold, which he does. Our hand holds up.

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

Not Like This...

Hero UTG+2 ($204) AKdd
Villain 1 UTG+3 ($125.27) 2d2c
Villain 2 BB (covers) ??

Hero opens to $6 villain 1 calls and villain 2 raises to $24. We call and villain 1 calls.

Flop ($69.35) T74ddd

Yahtzee!!! We flopped the joint! Villain 2 checks, we check and villain 1 bets $31.50. Villain 2 folds (oh well) and we put in the min raise to $63. Villain 1 goes all in for $101.27 total and we happily call.

Turn ($275.54) 2x......



River ($275.54)

Had a decent day today. Lost a couple of stacks with overpairs vs sets in 3bet pots. Sometimes you just gotta pay them off.

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

Not Even Close Bro

Hero SB (covers) AA
Villain UTG+1 ($237.35) K7cc

Villain opens to $5, UTG+2 calls, we 3bet to $22 and they both call.

Flop ($64.60) 655ccx

We bet $24 and only villain calls.

Turn ($112) 5x

We bet $44 and villain calls.

River ($200) Ac

We bet $88 and villain timebanks, then calls. Maybe we could have gotten it all (~$60 more) but the ace river seems like a bit of an action killer.

The Ole 84 Suited

Hero SB (covers) KK
Villain 1 UTG+2 ($106.68) 84ss
Villain 2 UTG+4 ($38.76) Q9hh

Both villains limp and we raise to $10 from the SB and both villains call.

Flop ($30.40) QJ8

We check all sneaky like and Villain 1 bets pot $30.40 and villain 2 calls all-in $28.76, we check raise all-in for $96.68 effective villain 1 calls.

Turn ($254.12) As
River ($254.12) 4x

Well played 84. Feels like I lose more than my fair share of these stupid hands.

I didn't rebuy immediately and lost another $90 with JJ<99 all in on flop of 865 right after this too. Ridiculous.

Odd Check Raise

Hero BTN (covers) 44
Villain UTG+1 ($153.05) AJos

Villain limps, I limp on the button SB calls, and BB checks.

Flop ($7.60) AQ4hhx

Checks to us and we bet $4. SB calls, and villain check raises to $14. If you got me set over set buddy then good for you. We 3bet to $56. SB folds and villain calls.

Turn ($120) Jx

Villain checks and we put him all-in for $95.05. He calls.

River ($314.10) 6h

One for the good guys.

Lost a lot of bullshit ass hand today but I still managed to turn a profit so it wasn't too bad. Can't complain about a winning day can I? GG and good night.

The Worst

Hero BTN (covers) Racist Aces
Villain 1 UTG ($60) QQ
Villain 2 UTG+2 ($220.62) 66

Villain 1 opens to $6 UTG+2 calls, HJ calls, CO calls, we raise to $28 on the button. Villain 1 jams $60, villain 2 calls, HJ, CO fold. We go all-in for $220.62 effective V2 calls.

Flop ($516.24) KQ4

Well at least there wasn't a 6 on the flop.

Turn ($516.24) 6

There it is.

River ($516.24) 3

I swear to christ I have the worst luck. I lost a stack with AA<KK all in pre already today. Insane. Gonna be hard to turn this shitshow around. I've got a big stack in the thousandaire maker though so maybe I get lucky there and make it all up?

Turn ($207.32) 5x

River Bluff Shove

Hero UTG+2 (covers) AdKs
Villain UTG ($216.24) ??

Villain opens to $6 and we 3bet to $18 only villain calls.

Flop ($37.05) J85ddd

Villain checks and we bet $20 and villain calls.

Turn ($75.05) Tx

We both check.

River ($75.05) 4x

Villain bets $23.53, we raise all-in $178.24 effective. Villain timebanks all the way down to <5 secs then folds. Usually they end up folding when they go to timebank. Probably not a great bluff by me but it worked so I'll take it. Sometimes you just feel it and gotta go for it. And when you're getting beat up by the deck you make some spewy bluffs.

I busted the thousandaire make in 14th. Top 8 make 1k, so that sucks.

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

Results 5/28: -$620

Lost about half of that amount in MTTs yesterday. I really don't like the variance they throw in the mix (except when I hit big!). Makes it rough.

Good Start

Hero HJ ($210.38) 99
Villain CO (covers) AKhh

Hero opens to $6 and villain 3bets to $19 and only we call.

Flop ($38.95) A94ddx

We check villain bets $13.48 and we call.

Turn ($64.56) Ax

We check and villain bets $24.29 and we check raise to $62.06 and villain calls.

River ($188.08) 6x

We go all-in for $115.84 and villain calls. Good start so far. Also won about a half a stack with 55 on 2346 board, villain folded the river.

How To Get It All?

Hero SB ($378.76) 88
Villain UTG (covers) ??

HJ posts $2 and CO posts $3. UTG opens to $8 and only we call.

Flop ($21.85) K84sxs

We lead $8 and villain raises to $26.93 and we 3bet to $77.86 total and villain calls.

Turn ($174.72) 2x

We're about $290 effective and we bet $108 and villain folds.

Did I size it wrong? How should I try to be getting stacks in here? Check turn to check raise? Check call turn and jam river? Bet smaller on the turn? Jam all-in on the turn? Did I play it right? Play it different on the flop? Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated here guys, thanks.

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

I'm not sure why leading would be a thing on the flop. K84 favors the opener a lot more than you, so checking in flow would be the most natural thing to do. X/R flop and then just barreling turn seems good to me.

We check BB checks and villain jams $140.15, we raise all-in and BB folds.

Turn ($310.30) Jx

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

Feels Bad Man

Hero UTG (covers) AJos
Villain SB ($216.60) 44

Hero opens to $6. Only Villain calls.

Flop ($13.30) A43ccx

We both check.

Turn ($13.30) Ax

SB checks and we bet $6 villain check raises to $31.30 and we call.

River ($72.77) 8x

Sb shoves for $179.30 and I call. Feels bad. I should fold river it's just never a bluff. Nice hand buddy. That's what I get for raising AJ utg I guess. FML.
