Tourney number 3

By: Ronnietolson @ 11:38 (EST) / 160 / Comment ( 0 )

Just like tourney number 2 this was a very short one i feel this journey is going to be a long one till i claim my 1st win.





Im into the action straight away sitting UTG+1 i pick up  and just call with 20 my opponent to my left re-raises to 80 with the rest of the table folding i call atthis moment im thinking is my kicker good enough, the flop comes  i pair my ace i check putting the play onto my opponent who puts in a bet of 80 i call and the turn comes  at the moment im still worrying about my kicker so i check again and once again my opponent puts in a bet of 80 i call then onto the river  now im not worried about my kicker i must be ahead now i check hoping my opponent carries on with there continuation betting but not this time they check and i take the pot beating my opponents Q9.


Im sat at big blind and i get dealt  UTG+1 raises to 80 with 2 other callers i also call the 80 then comes the flop  BOOM this could be my hand i choose to check with 3 other players in the hand im waiting for someone to make a move so i can destroy them theres a bet of 138 which i call theres 2 players fold so its just the 2 of us in the hand surely they havent hit, then the turn provides  i check again im then faced with a bet of 276 which i obviously call then the river  now im thinking Q 10 or AQ or even a pocket pair so i bet half pot 552 which is met with a re-raise to 1,104 i push all in with my stack of 1,311 they call im ready to punch the air then my opponent turns  my heart sinks my set is beat by a full house when i thought pocket pair i never thought of 6s now im left with a dismal 60 chips aaaarrrgggg.


After my spanking in the last hand im left with 60 chips which i put straight in i have  with 5 other players in the end i end up with nothing and leave the tourney very early once again i dont think today is going to be a good one.

Final position 167/180

Roll on tourney number 4 which is going to be a $1.00 180 player SNG
