Day 2 - Session # 2

By: BobbaLoO @ 00:56 (EDT) / 69 / Comment ( 0 )
Well, all done day two and had some semi-decent results. I played 4, $3.00 + .40 (9-Seat) SnG's and had respectable results. Finished 1st, twice. 3rd, once and busted out in 5th in the other tourney to a pretty bad beat. I had KK and was semi-short stacked and was on the BB. Button raised 4x the Big Blind so I came over the top. He shoved and after a few moments of hesitation, I made the call. He flipped a QQ to my relief. Sure enough the board came K 10 Q. I was supper happy that my KK's actually looked like they'd hold for once. But, sure enough, the turn came like a dagger to my heart. YUP, one and only one out remaining in the deck and he nailed it! Q.... needless to say, my jaw dropped when I saw it. Guess there was nothing I could do once PS's RNG made its decision. heh. All in all - I played well. The second tourney that I took down had some tough competitors and I was happy that I was able to take it down. I decided to try my luck with a 27 Seat, $3.00 + .40 tourney and wasn't to happy with how I played. I made a bad call and then tried to chase down a draw, payed a lot for it too. Of coarse I missed, which lead to this beat.. Seat 4: BobbaLoO (545 in chips) Seat 6: lvgrl77 (5425 in chips) BobbaLoO: posts big blind 100 *** HOLE CARDS *** Dealt to BobbaLoO [8h 6s] lvgrl77: calls 100 softbal111: folds saablick101 is connected PhilMo26: folds wicket43: folds BobbaLoO: checks *** FLOP *** [5s 7h 6h] BobbaLoO: bets 445 and is all-in lvgrl77: calls 445 *** TURN *** [5s 7h 6h] [7c] *** RIVER *** [5s 7h 6h 7c] [8d] *** SHOW DOWN *** BobbaLoO: shows [8h 6s] (two pair, Eights and Sevens) lvgrl77: shows [Kd 9d] (a straight, Five to Nine) lvgrl77 collected 1140 from pot *** SUMMARY *** Total pot 1140 | Rake 0 Board [5s 7h 6h 7c 8d] what can I say. when you're meant to lose, they make sure you go out in style! End of day Bankroll: 68.00 - making some progress =)
