$525 Live Final Table at Rivers Casino

It has been a week.

Trying to recover from my High Five series disgrace, I moved down in stakes and played a lot less tables this week. I put money on Bovada and Carbon and now have a modest bankroll on both.

I had a deep run in the Carbon $11 7k GTD on Friday but lost a flip late that would have given me heaps. On Saturday, I woke up early to play the 9a.m. $55 Satellite tournament at Rivers Casino. I won one of the seven seats to the monthly $550 without much of a sweat. The $550 started at 12:15, with a 25K starting stack and 40 minute blind levels. This is the perfect structure for my style. Unfortunately we ran into it early (WARNING: BAD BEAT STORY COMING).

Blinds 75/150

I don't know exact stack sizes but it was early and everyone was playing tight, so everyone was around 25k.

UTG: Raise to 400

Call

Hero: Calls with Jc8c

SB: Call

BB: Call

Pot: 2400

Flop: J 2 8rainbow

UTG: bets 1300

Pot: 6300

Turn: J 2 8 2

SB: Check

UTG: Check

Hero: bets 3000

SB: Calls

UTG: Folds

Pot: 12,300

River: J 2 8 2 J

SB: Checks

Hero: I bet 5k into the pot (my thoughts was that any 'J' is calling and possibly and crying call from a '2'. I thought if I bet more than he could probably find a fold with a '2')

To my surprise sb does not call but instead...

SB: Raise 7K More

Thoughts?

I tanked and honestly thought about just calling because he either had a 'J' or he had 22. If it was later in the tournament I think it is an easy jam but this early I don't know if theres any difference in having 35k chips vs 50k+ in chips.

I ended up jamming and he snap called, I said "do you have quads" and he shook his head yes and I showed the table the sickness. I had 2k left and lost it a few hands later.

My Redemption

Since I satellited into the tournament, I was able to re-enter. I was pretty tilted but I was ready to go. Twelve hours later I was at the final table and was one of the chip leaders. 13k up top. I ended up taking 5th for $3,375 after getting bossed around by some old man.

Updated 2016 Live Results

February

We need to get back to some online results. They are coming! Lots of deep runs in the past week.

After I get back from Austria, I have decided to play the Hollywood Poker Open Main Event in Toledo, Ohio. The tournament is $150,000 GTD with a $1,115 buyin. It has a great structure and should be a good one to play after coming home from the CAPT.

I hope all is well. Please let me know what I can do to make this blog more interesting and good luck at the tables.

Congrats on your recent success... For the reasons you already mentioned that J8 hand is just a call.. you're not getting called by worse with your reshove so there is no value in the shove. But a good sign that that you overcame the adversity and final tabled anyways. Maybe adding one story off the felts per article would personally make it more interesting for me. I like hearing of people's lives outside the game as well (doesn't have to be anything life changing, but anything adds a nice touch)

Thanks for the response AJ. When I was discussing it at the table, everyone thought I was crazy for even thinking about just calling but it went through my mind for sure.

 

I've enjoyed your blog for a while. I'll try to take your suggestions to improve this.

 

Thanks again!

Chris
