  1. <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=484 bgColor=#eaeaef border=0><TBODY><TR><TD class=log width=75>Date / Time:</TD><TD class=log>2006-04-19 07:44PM</TD></TR><TR><TD class=log>Title:</TD><TD class=log>Table #57</TD></TR><TR><TD class=log vAlign=top>Log:</TD><TD class=log>As tables have been broken, players have been finding their new seats. Table 57 is probably the toughest table with Doyle Brunson (Seat 1), Chau Giang (Seat 2), Cliff "JohnnyBax" Josephy (Seat 7), Don Mullis (Seat 9) and Kristy Gazes (Seat 10).

    The player in seat 8, whose name I can't spell but is pronounced "Joey" was also a pro. Having 5 pros seated to my left, I figured playing tight was my best option and that is what I did all day long. For the most part, I just let my cards play themselves.

    I took down some decent pots, but by far the most interesting was one that I lost. At 100-200/25, the button opens for 700. I look down at AsJh in the SB, and decided that with my ultra-tight image, I can raise to 2100 and take it down preflop. Oops, the button flat called. The flop came J92 all spades, giving me top pr best kicker and the nut flush draw. I led out for only 2k, and he raised it to 6k. I had 68k before the hand, and I think he had around 50k. Just as I was about to repop him, I decided I really didn't want to commit myself in case he flopped huge, even though I felt was ahead, so I just called. The turn brought the 7h, and I checked to him. He bet a very hefty 12k and after a lot of anguish, I called. The river was an offsuit 10, putting J92 7 10 on the board. I decided not to bluff at it, and guess what he checked behind with? Scroll down for the answer. By the way, I am not happy with the way I played ths hand, as I should have taken it on the flop.


    He had 97dd LOL.

  2. LOL..........................

    gl JB
  3. who is this guy. maybe if he signed up for pokerxfactor he would know how to play and not lose to 97. what a chump
  4. The moral of this story as told from an XFactor student.....even the Bax can be Bax'd.....
    what doesn't leave us dead may only leave us crippled....and while crippled we can do miraculous things.....gl sir..and ty for all your knowledge.


    P.S. It's not the size of the dog in the fight...but size of fight in the dog.......not sure where I heard this quote...but it's my motto...
  5. I ended the day with 76k and am very happy with the way I played every hand except for the above.

    2 anecdotes:

    1) I took a horrible beat early - Not the usual kind tho. There was a player at the table who was so terrible, yet he managed to have like 80k chips. It was a race to see who would get them 1st, and Don Mullis took the honors. The donk's KQ was no match for Don's 22 on a board of J62 K. The donk's ckraise on the flop didn't work, nor did his ckraise on the turn as Don repopped him allin and he called while he was drawing dead.

    2) Don't feel bad if you are playing live and you accidentally toss in the wrong # of chips. It can happen to anyone. At 300-600/75, Doyle opens the pot for 20,300 in MP. He IMMEDIATELY reached to catch the chips before they hit the felt, as he intended to make it only 2300, but his bet stood. He had fewer than 10k chips behind. Someone w/QQ reraised allin, and Doyle was obliged to call. Not a problem, as an Ace turned.
