you played well as well. I feel a bit sorry for any1 who sits on my right deep in a tourney, it will rarely be fun :P.

Took 6th in it the day before, first time i've ft'd it back to back days, was pretty sick, hope you managed to close out!

its really not even close. I dont use any AHK programs or w/e, and i find stacking to be by far the best. Everything is easy to see, you have loads of times for decisions, and when you get to the final few tables in something, put it off by itself on the side and you can keep aware of game flow and such.

Taking the day off today to hangout with my bf. Been together for 1.5 years as of today.

Haha, that's so f-ing sick, pretty hard/reggy tourny, so b2b is nice, wp. I don't think I played that well, I got pretty nitty as I hated raising into you and zack on the btn or in the sb, knowing you were shoving ridic light, was hard to find spots and chip up. And unfortunately, I didn't ship it . 3rd for $1.7k KQ<K3 for CL HU vs whale, then chipped up and lost Q6<44 for HU vs whale

Are you a girl or gay? and congrats on the relationship

Re: ***Protential's Last PG&C Thread***

"#Wynning"
A Las Vegas Trip Report

Long over due, but here is the first half. If people want more i'll finish it up.

******Day 1******

The night before we left (my boyfriend and myself), I had a great Sunday grind.

While i personally didn't do very well (winning day tho!), the student I currently work the most with had his first ever 4fig score, so ended up being a very positive Sunday and thus I had wonderful positive vibes about the upcoming trip.

The trip however, started off with a resounding "ZzZzZzZzZz", as we had a flight out of Toronto at 6am, and thus had to wake up at 3:30. >.<

Because of this I ended up getting less than 2 hours of sleep. When our taxi/escalade (airport taxi service using swag cars) came to pick us up in the morning, the following song came to mind.



We flew from toronto to new york city first, and had an hour layover there before our eventual 5+ hour flight to vegas. It was my first time ever in new york, however with such a short lay over, and being at JFK airport, we got to see nothing of the city .

The flight out to vegas was completely un-eventful.



We arrived in vegas at around noon pst, and decided to spend the day walking around the strip after we got our room in Harrah's. We had plans that night to meet up with one of my investors, to get the rest of funds for the package, but outside of that we had a completely free day.

Bellagio


Forum Shops


Paris


Room View


Aria



****** Day 2******


Today was the day of the first $550 event that I played for my package. After eating a wonderful breakfast buffet in Harrah's, we went over to the Wynn to get me signed up and ready to play.

Wynn & Encore


Me in front of Wynn Waterfall


Basebaldy ended up getting moved to my table, and he pretty much busted me when he shoved like 7bb and i called with KQ, he had AQ and ended up holding in a suckout-re-suckout.

After I busted i ended up spending the rest of the night hanging out with Chris and his best friend Arjun (who flew down from Yale on spring break to hangout with us). We decided that it would be a good idea to see a show that night, so we ended up going to see the "Blueman Group".

It was a very good show, a unique form of human expression with a mixture of music, dancing, magic, and comedy. Well worth the money, imo, but it is definitely a hit or miss kind of show as far as enjoyment goes. After a great night out, i was more than ready for the next few days of play. My next $500 event was the next day and i was more then ready to crush, if only the cards would bei n my favor ^.^

Re: ***Protential's Last PG&C Thread***

I realized a bit late that part of the TR about the first 550's play got cut off. Not much happened tho, mostly barely stayed afloat for awhile. Then the above happened.

    This was with 15 left in the big 109, pot for 2nd. Winning the mtt would have cleared my make up... >.<

    Rarely is poker about what your cards are, its more about the situation you are in and your opponents. OR was agro, blinds were fairly tight passive, so im likely to be in a hu pot, in position, in a spot where i can win easily post flop. I wouldn't call it a std call, but its def +EV, i dont mind 3betting here either, but i had a really high 3bet % and felt that the OR could 4bet jam alot.

    Re: ***Protential's Last PG&C Thread***

    Today has been sick. Good, but a bit heart breaking for tlb.

    9th in the 75$ 5k, 8th in a 27$ tko, 9th in the 54$ tko, 4th in the 109 2x turbo, and for the 3rd time this week i ft'd the 8c and once again i failed at it and took 8th -.- .

    The 109 2x was insane, i thought i was done with my first bullet after i had the following hand occur:


      Poker Stars, $100 Buy-in (150/300 blinds, 25 ante) No Limit Hold'em Tournament, 8 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite. View Hand #12553992

      MP1: 8,125 (27.1 bb)
      MP2: 7,832 (26.1 bb)
      Hero (MP3): 2,141 (7.1 bb)
      CO: 1,985 (6.6 bb)
      BTN: 2,020 (6.7 bb)
      SB: 1,749 (5.8 bb)
      BB: 6,983 (23.3 bb)
      UTG+2: 2,030 (6.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A A
      UTG+2 raises to 2,005 and is all-in, 2 folds, Hero raises to 2,116 and is all-in, 4 folds

      Flop: (4,660) 8 4 2 (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      Turn: (4,660) 3 (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: (4,660) 8 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      Spoiler:



      Get the Flash Player to use the Hold'em Manager Replayer.


      after losing this hand i had 111 chips left, without rebuying i managed to run it up to over 500k, and was 1/6 at the ft. First was 10k, if i had won it my make up would be under 5fig for the first time in nearly a year. Sadly enough i couldn't close it out. >.<

      Fun day tho, guarneteed + 3k ish with a decent number of tourneys left. #leggo

      thanks for reading and best of luck at the tables!

      Ended up managing to FT 1 more tourney (7th in a 22$ big antes) and ended my day with a gross 20th in the 33$ speedway. Pretty sure i set a record for myself for most mtt ft's in a day tho (6! :O) , and ended up around 4.3k overall. Freeroll for sunday and a bigger monthly lead... #I'llTakeIt

      Make up is currently at 14k

      14+ hour session tomorrow, down to 3 sundays before i leave canada. #leggo

      Out of the kindness of their heart bogan/community here has offered to donate 500$ to a charity of my choice if i can manage to clear make up before i leave canada (2 weeks from now). When he offered it i was well over 55k in make up.

      The charity i have chosen is called "The Trevor project", it is a group dedicated to helping GLBT youth and preventing suicide.

      If i manage to clear by more than 10k i will be matching his donation.
