Just closing off the on the final table for the 90man 2nd hour live training session on the 3rd of July.

We had just reached the final table with a 21k chip stack.

My final table run wasn't astounding. We finished 4th. We spent a long while a little card dead and only played a few hands so it's not really worth a full replayer session.

I'll just pick out the major hands and make a few comments.

As mentioned we spent the 1st half of the final table pretty card dead. We played pretty tight and raised a few pots from late position to take the blinds. There have been 3 eliminations.



Our stack has dropped to 15k chips. The big stack has raised 2.5BB and we have AKs.
Make a normal reraise to around 6-7BBs would likely commit us to the hand anyway. So we reraise allin to hopefully pickup the blinds and the raise. But in the case of a loose call we have a very good shot at the double up.

We are back to a 19k chip stack.



We have a tight image at the moment having been card dead for a prolonged period. I raise KTs UTG to 2.5BB. The small stack BB is commited and pushes in his last chips and I call.

We raise QTo from the button here hoping to steal. The SB big stack calls and checks the flop.

This is not a great flop to CBet on, however very unlikely to have hit his calling range either.
I decide to CBet for just over half the pot the BB calls.

At this point I give up on my steal and I will be happy to check it down. Continuing with the steal here would mean shoving the rest of my stack without a made hand. I feel I would be getting called most of the time with my shove only being half the pot and the big stack having me well covered.

After the failed steal attempt we are the short stack at the table with 6BBs remaining.

We shove ATo from the SB and get called by the big stack with A5o and our hand holds.

Two players are eliminated. I'm now the short stack again with 7BBs.

I shove Q6o from the button and get through the blinds.



Next hand is A9o which we shove UTG and get called by 22. We miss our outs and are sent packing in 4th
