Inside My Mind aka Million Club 2

By: JPrates31 @ 17:34 (EST) / 348 / Comment ( 0 )

Hi Guys! So today I'm playing the Million Club with my last week's unused ticket, and I thought I'd change things a bit and give you a Live Blog of "Inside my Mind", so I'm commenting as I'm playing  hope you like it

Starting off, we're on break, blinds 50/100 and I have a 2735 stack (against the 2,8k average).

First hand, AA ahah I open 3x from Hijack and the BB 3-bets to 700 (2,3x raise), i shove on him and he folds. Now with 3485 

No one is taking any chances and neither am I ahah I'm within the virtual bubble and this is a slow structure so no need to go crazy.

Decided to steal from the cut-off and the BB slow-played QQ on a KQx where i had a king :/ lost a big shunk (c-bet the flop and called a small bet on the river since i had top pair) I had put him on a queen something or A something (bluffing)

Following hand, went for another "steal" with 55 got called by the BB and on a board of all over cards he donked and i folded...  down to 1,8k

Shoving mode on, blinds are 75/150... Waiting on a good spot. Wish me Luck!

Just folded KJ on UTG, i don't feel it's worth it in this slow structure. In returned they gave me the blinds on the BB  ty guys

Shoving A8o from the cutoff, everyone folded... Up to 2k now

A few hands later, we're all discussing VPIP's and PFR's of the people at the table... Looks like a bar and not a serious table, but this table is so ultra-tight it's been about 10 minutes since something interesting happened 

Another AA on the BB, button raises i shove he folds and shows one Ace (he's been raising a lot, from the button, now i know I can bully him a bit from the BB)... Up to 2,2k, blinds are 100/200... I'm one of the shortest stacks in the tourney right now

Shoving AKo from the hijack and the following hand as well and not getting called. 500 each so I'm 2,8k stacked. I'm virtually 23 of 30, the 19th will be sitting on the bubble

KJ on the Button gets folded around i shove and get called by AK on the BB... flop is all low and I busted in 30th.

At least it was a funny ride, hope you guys enjoyed sweating with me  and I'm really sorry to the person reviewing this hugeeee blog

Open to doing this again if you enjoy it.

See you around and Good Luck at the tables,
