Bubble Blues

By: hititflush @ 08:16 (EDT) / 309 / Comment ( 1 )

Hi all from Adelaide Australia...

I am over just limping past the Bubble and min cashing, so in recent tourney I was determined not to be worried about the bubble, my goal was to go deep...

So yes very much on bubble and Hand 163 in $0.50+$0.05 USD Hold'em No Limit - Level XI (400/800) - comes.... I am BB

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to hititflush [Td Tc] (BB)
UTG: folds
UTG+1: folds
Middle: folds
Middle: folds
Hijack: folds
Cut Off: folds
Button: raises 1600 to 2400 (Button)
SB: folds
hititflush: raises 6188 to 8588 and is all-in
tropkir: calls 6188

I am happy I put my words into action, we are right on the bubble
  • 380 players cashing we are currently at 383 players

Button Raises and I ship figuring my tens are good alot of the time in this spot

*** FLOP *** [6s Kc Th]

GOLD flop the set... Plan seems to have come together, Double up and position myself to run deep...

*** TURN *** [6s Kc Th] [8s]

OK... I have ticked all the boxes and played aggressive on the bubble, surely I am good here...

*** RIVER *** [6s Kc Th 8s] [9s]    *** SHOW DOWN ***
hititflush: shows [Td Tc] (three of a kind, Tens)
Button: shows [Ah 7c] (a straight, Six to Ten)
Button collected 18251 from pot
hititflush finished the tournament in 383rd place - Right on the BUBBLE... C'Mon Runner Runner to make the double gut shot... :roll:    Happy with my play, maybe next time I will hold with 80% odd equity after the flop. :wink:
