Loser's Cry :P


I knocked out a PSO Team Member in the SOP

By: F27.Maverick @ 12:42 (EDT) / 65 / Comment ( 2 )

CannonLee, one of the members of PSO was drawn in my table on my left. My immediate reaction was "okay, there's a potential 25 points...might call any of his all-ins with even 72o"!



Jokes apart, genuine poker starts.

I was playing the way as I play the whole tournament, with a TAG approach. He was following the same. However I was 3-betting quite often and eventually I got 99 UTG. He made a 3-bet and when the action folded to me I made a 4-bet since I was out of position to him. He flat called. The flop missed me with an overcard, I still made a c-bet about 60% of the pot with the pot already being too large preflop. He called. The turn and the river didn't help me either, however no more betting took place and he showed AKo. Anyways...I guess that set a table image of mine, was raising quite frequently since then and then came this hand


This was the elimination hand of CannonLee. I think it was possible because of the loose image I set since that 99 hand. Otherwise I guess he would have folded JJ.

Anyways, the tourney result wasn't great, busted without money; crashed against a flopped full house having top pair top kicker and the villain slowrolled, and another hand where my JJ didnt hold against KJ, made me lose more than two-thirds of my stack and never gained back the momentum from there.

But busting a PSO member was a unique experience
