Re: Bellagio Five Diamond Thread

Peaked at 42k (4x starting stack), hung around 30k-35k like literally 2/3 of the tournament.

I bustoed KQ < AA when I opened 2.7x and a 9x nitty mcnitterson shoved behind me and I almost folded but called. Then I had 9 bbs and Joe Tehan opens in MP, I flat in BB with AT looking to stop and go, then flop comes AK4r, so I c/c all in and he has AK! sighduck

Re: Bellagio Five Diamond Thread

out of the 1500 like 15 minutes into the second level. two limpers for 100, i make it 550 with AKo and a stack of around 2700, first limper coldcalls for a third of his stack, second limper also calls.

Pot is 1700 or so to a K98 two clubs flop, they check to me and I decide to ship in 2200, first limper folds and second limper has 88, PEACE.

Suc a soft table too, everyone was clueless.

Fun anecdote, Allan Kessler whined about my play today because I was too deliberate. He reminds me of Kyle's cousin on South Park.

Re: Bellagio Five Diamond Thread

Out in 1:45 in the 1500. Shove AJhh (by far the best hand I'd seen all day) for 2K from SB over 375 raise from MP, guy tanks for quite a while before turning over AKo. Had one obnoxious ******* at my first table who must have 18K in chips, made the nuts about 6 times in the 1st hour, including A-high flush over K-high flush against a big stack.

Just tell him to stfu and worry about his top 2 pretend girlfriends on his myspace.

(Quickie Backstory: During a Mirage prelim tourney this year he was going on and on at his table and to someone at the next about how Anna W. and some other chick are at the top of his myspace friends and how they have him as theirs and so on and he wouldn't shut up about it and it came off suuuuuuuper-lame and creepy.)

Re: Bellagio Five Diamond Thread

yeah, he definitely came off as someone who lives to draw attention to themselves. really lame.

hey, since nobody is prolly going deep in the $1500 can we have our drunk game tonight? I would much prefer this over grinding tournaments.

Re: Bellagio Five Diamond Thread

Kyle, Jason and I drank and donked around last night a bit. I busted the $15K at Venetian in 3 hours never winning a pot bigger than 600 chips. Playing $1K on Tilt now but would be up for drunken donking around to blow off steam as soon as i tilt out of that.

Re: Bellagio Five Diamond Thread

What was the turnout for the Venetian tournament?

Turns out it was 49 entrants.

Re: Bellagio Five Diamond Thread

Busted out of the 1k second chance. Sat at Todd Terry's table.

Note: Todd Terry is not a 250 lb, 34 year old man with a goatee as I imagined him (the live tournament player on 2p2).

Hes actually a skinny nerd JUST LIKE ME

and JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE ON 2p2.

except wafflecrushers.

oh, and then i busto'd to him, A5s < JJ

im gonna try and see about a splashy live game in a little bit. call me or get on AIM
