My Be(A)st Moment On Pokerstars

By: jdsaz @ 17:23 (EST) / 526 / Comment ( 0 )

My Best moment in poker can be argued to a sad moment as wel for me in poker...

This is how it all started...i had being making a steady roll by playing the 1$ 45man non turbo and had made 700 FPP's in the process also...Sunday was approaching and i felt like playing some sunday major.

But still my bankroll was very small and i didn't feel like putting even 1% of my bankroll into events i didn't feel i have an edge in...So keeping my $'s aside i planned to play the Bigger 11$ and Sunday Storm...the only question was where to get the buyins from...i searched for the best possible FPP option available and found out the 70FPP 9 man sats that gave entry to 1 person to STORM...so 7:30pm Local time i setup for the grind...firred 2 70FPP SNG's and began...the Storm happens 11:30pm local time whereas Bigger 11$ happens at 00:00hrs...i had 10 attempts and 4 hours to make my buyin...the 10 events happened and i was able to secure 2 entries...crushingly sad part was i was head up 5 times holding major chiplead 4 times and i blew 2 of them..one because of a huge bad beat and other cause of an ill timed 3 barrel bluff..so there i was with 22$ in hand so i registered the two events...

 

I started pretty good in storm rose up the ranks bt then became moreover cardead...Bigger 11$ had also started by nw and i was smooth sailing in both...i played pretty knit in bigger 11$ at start and also made a major fold ..at that point it was a big fold for me to make...

here's how it happened ..i played them bad i know ..bt i was pretty sure the guy had a 10 post flop and would chase whatever happend...i should have 3-bet pre only and taken it doen...other guy paid him of with J9

everything was going smooth until i picked up AA in STORM..a guy raises middle posion..i 3 bet big with almost a pot size bet left behind on the flop when if he calls my raise..he calls..flop is 3 7 9..no fluush draws..i check he bets..he had a big stack he could easily do that with any overpair and Ace so i was more than confident to call and moreover had intended to put the money in on the FLOP only...he shows me 33 and i BUSTED

Bigger 11 i was pretty chatty on the table and picked my spots perfectly also observing the way everyone was playing which allowed me to fold this preflop

 

 

i was so sure he had AA that i called it out on chat as soon as i folded

 

chipped up well...almost cooler this ..either i am very strong or very weat there

 

ONE MAJOR THING I NOTICED TO RUN DEEP IN A TOURNEY UR AK(Anna Kornikova) has to be on your side..like this

 

i was always  in top 30 1000people down..then i starting fading in the backpack when 27 were left...played a bad hand BLIND vs BLIND and that is guess what costed me everything in the end...

Last hand jammed this ..standard play on button but the big bully in BB wakes up with better

 

And i was left to wonder what could have been...my biggest score online then ...but then i recognised there is always a tomorrow and my day will come soon to just got to keep on working hard
