After the lovely green sessions, you always expect the ugly red sessions to come. You can expect bad beats, but you don’t expect to play bad. You say to yourself: yeah they got lucky, yeah they played terrible, yeah I’m much better than they are and I should own the limit. But actually you play terrible! And that’s what I did this week end. A lot of bad calls and lots of pots played too aggressively.
So here are sessions #4 to #7, played this week end:
and we are back to square one!
Let’s continue with the traditional hand review. A rare spot here. I’m glad I haven’t lost my stack, but it is also tough to fold on the button’s raise. I just called because I felt I got trapped, but I was more in a raise or call state of mind, so I never considered to fold here. Would you fold after the button all-in raise?
UTG – UTG (€10,98)
CO – CO (€5,00)
BTN – BTN (€2,13)
SB – Hero (€14,16)
BB – BB (€5,67)
Preflop: (€0,07, 5 players) Hero is SB with 8♥8♦
UTG calls €0,05, 1 fold, BTN raises to €0,15, Hero raises to €0,60, BB calls €0,55, 1 fold, BTN raises to €2,13 (all-in), Hero calls €1,53, BB raises to €5,67 (all-in), 1 fold, Uncalled bet of €3,54 returned to BB
Flop: 5♣T♣2♦ (€6,44, 2 players, 1 all-in – BB: €3,54, BTN: €0,00)
Turn: 9♠ (€6,44, 2 players, 1 all-in – BB: €3,54, BTN: €0,00)
River: A♠ (€6,44, 2 players, 1 all-in – BB: €3,54, BTN: €0,00)
Total Pot: €6,44
BTN shows A♥4♦ (One pair : Aces)
BB shows A♦A♣ (Trips of Aces)
BB wins €6,02
Another defining moment of the week-end was when I won this allin with tens against kings. The flop came KTx, I let you imagine how it ended. It was beautiful…
So that’s it, there will be a session or two tonight, I’ll try to avoid the mistakes I made earlier and make good figure to show you some nice charts in the next post!
