Duplicate Poker Hand #3: PRE-FLOP (and your reads).

Note #1: What follows is all the info you will have to configure your decisions in the play of the hand.

- You will receive information on each of your opponents.
This information is based on PAST PATTERNS, things you may have "picked up on" at your table. Do not "assume" all information is "perfect".

- If you feel a vital piece of information about an opponent is "lacking", then please consider your poker reads to be incomplete per that point.

- Please consider this an exercise in "role playing", where you are trying your best to put yourself into the situation as presented.

- You are to base your play decisions on what you would do in an ACTUAL poker MTT.

- Ceratin information about YOU, and your "play" in this event will be "created" as well.
Items such as your financial status will be created so that everyone attempting this exercise will be "equal" in that regard; how you let that finiancial situation effect your decision process is up to you.

Also, information about hands you "played", in between the hands we will review, will be created. This is so you can make some judgements about how "aware" Villains at your table may re-act to those past plays in the hand currently under review.

As each "live" person in this exercise may have a particular play style, each of those styles would confer an "image". Since these images may differ widely, again in order to "level" the data that everyone has for use, the interim hands will be made up of certain plays you CANNOT "control".

Note #2: This hand will be slightly DIFFERENT than previous hands, insofar as you will be playing against a LIVE OPPONENT.

TheLangolier will be involved (in some way) with this hand.

To avoid actions which might influence his decisions, TheLangolier has agreed to refrain from viewing ANY of the posts pertaining to discussion of the "Group hand" and "Group Decisions". I will p.m. him his start cards, and he will have the exact same "action information" I post for the group (minus your hand of course!).

Dave will then pm me a range of actions he would take, depending upon what the GROUP decides to vote for, instead of me creating his actions beforehand. When I receive that information, as well as the action the group votes for, I will post the next street. I will still create all actions for any "Villians" remaining in the action before play begins.

While this means Dave will not be able to take part in the group's discussions, you all will have a chance to play against his particular "poker skills" without putting any actual cash at risk! After completion of the hand, I think we will all benefit from discussing why the group thought as they did, as well as what Dave was thinking throughout the play of the hand.

So without further ado, I give you your NEXT set of informational reads, and we will begin Hand #3:

Situation:

"META GAME" INFO (on You, for you):
You have recently signed a contract with a wealthy Billionaire, whereby he will "stake" you to a $300,000 bank roll for use as Buy In's to MTT across the country.

In return, you will pay 60% of all PROFITS (over the buy in, the original BI is "rolled over" for use again) to your "horse". You are obligated to play until you have entred 100 MTT, or until the bank roll has reached $0.

Additionally, you will be given a drawing account, consisting of cash over and above your BR amount to pay hotel and travel expenses, a per diem for meals etc of $500, as well as a drawing account of $1000 per week. Any amount spent for these expenses will be deducted from the profits of an event prior to the 60/40 division. Taxes will be paid prior to profit division as well.

You have arrived 3 days ago at the "Mississippi Classic" a $10k BI main event held at the Grand Casino in Tunica Missippi (a fictional event).

Thus far you have taken your 1st week draw of $1000, you have received $1500 in per diem expenses, and you have paid $150 in hotel room expenses. You live in Tunica, so you incurred no re-imbursable travel expenses, and you are staying at the hotel to avoid a 20 mile commute.

MTT STRUSTURE INFO:

The Blinds Structure is per this link:
http://www.wsop.com/tourney/structur...81&groupid=607

Prize Pool pay outs are 2 times those shown in this link:
http://www.wsop.com/tournaments/payo...d=607&tid=7281

There were 928 entrants.
603 players remain.

Average chip stack = 23085

Blinds = 300/600, 75 chip ante

Start Stacks = 15,000
Blind levels = 2 hours
Currently in Level 7, very start of Day #2 (1st hand of Lv. 7)

Seat #1 YOU
Your Stack = 33,925

You took a little bit of a stack hit late in day 1, but you still managed to through it with a little over double your start stack.
You decide to get to your new table as early as possible, in hopes of picking up any info you can by chattin up your new table mates.
You see your opponents start to trickle in...

Seat #2 TheLangolier
Stack = 33,900

This opponent is an early middle aged man who comes to the table with a friendly demeanor. As the rest of the table sits, you see he too is chatting up opponents, maybe for the same reasons as you. You learn this player's name is Dave, and that he is from the mid-west.

Dave comes to the table with a stack very similar in size to yours, wearing a 2 foot high rubber chicken on his head, and a tee shirt that says, "I lost a prop bet to JDean, that's why!"

You also learn through chatting that Dave is associated with PSO, and you recognize him at that point.

Seat #3 "Mort the Mouth"
Stack = 14,350

This is a early 30's East coast loud mouth type, who puts you in mind of the "Jersey Shore" cast when you look at him.

Mort has regaled the table already with tales of his cashes in such "august" events as the $300 buy in monthly event at the Borgata, and claims to regularly cash in the daily MTT in Atlantic City. You do not recognize his face, so you have no clue about the veracity of his claims.

Seat #4 "Lisa the Librarian"
Stack = 55,750

Lisa is a very quiet, seemingly shy woman in her mid to late 20's. She is wearing demure colthes in shades of brown and beige, and thick glasses.

Mort had loudly claimed to be at her table yesterday, and called her "the luckiest player I ever seen!"
Lisa merely looked down shyly, and stacked her chips as Mort was mouthing off about her play.

Seat #5 Kevin "the newb"
Stack = 22,725

Kevin is a late 20's/early 30's guy, who is aboslutely gushing with excitement at making day 2.
He is not afraid to tell anyone this is his first ever live MTT, and that he feels very fortunate to have made it through day 1.

Kevin has told you he got his seat thru $1 "Steps" qualifier on some small on line site.

Seat #6 EMPTY, no one has shown up for this stack yet.
Stack = 42,375

Seat #7 "Sailor Steve"
Stack = 19,100

Steve is a 21 year old petty officer in the US Navy. He came to Tunica with a couple buddies, and won his seat through a single table SNG on site.

Steve decided to play, despite the fact the Main Event is scheduled to go for 7 days, and if he makes the final table he would have to immediately catch a plane to get back to Pensacola in time.

Seat #8 "Grandma Jean"
Stack = 31,300

Jean is an adorable lady in her late 60's/early 70's who really does look exactly like everybody's Grandma; she even insists you call her that!

Jean brought home-made Chocolate chips for the whole table, and sits there knitting while you wait for the cards to fly.

When Mort got a little bit too loud and obnoxious, Jean looked at him sternly and said "You shush it Mister!"
Mort lowered his head, abashed a little bit, and simply said, "yes ma'am".

Jean then smiled and gave him a cookie, and patted his head. Mort blushed a little bit, but he did grin and take the cookie.

Jean just has the kind of personality that you really did not feel too surprised at that exchange...

Seat #9 Tom McEvoy
Stack = 31,500

Tom McEvoy is the winner of the WSOP ME in 1983. You played with him all through Day #1.

He had been somewhat quiet, but very polite.
He is a past Main Event winner with a well known reputation of extreme tightness.

McEvoy doubled through seat #5 soon after that player was seated at your table (in level 4) yesterday.

McEvoy raised to open from middle position with QQ, then flat called a 3Bet pre-flop.

He led for 1/2 pot on a Jack high flop, which the opponent called.

McEvoy led the turn for half pot again when he spiked a queen, and moved all in for roughly 8k more when his opponent raised him 2 times his turn open.

The opponent called with a set of Jacks, and McEvoy set of Q's held up.

Other than this, many pots versus McEvoy have not even gone to the flop, and he is maintaining around a 5% to 8% VPIP at most by your best guess throughout the entire day. As the blinds have increased, Tom has seemed to "open" his game a little...very little!

The first hand he showed down was AKs, and he has entered maybe 13 to 15 total pots through the entire event (almost 12 hours).

Other than AKs, he has shown down QQ (see above), 99 with a flopped set (he saw the flop on the button), and AQo.

The rest of his hands did not go to showdown.

THESE ARE YOUR READS!

I will post the PRE-FLOP actions on another Thread. (Dave, please do NOT read that thread!)

Please refer to this thread for your initial info thorughout the paly of the hand.

-Thanks!

You mean that was a serious question? You'll have to ask JDean, it's his fantasy prop bet. lol

Whatever it was I'm sure he got lucky, that donkey.

The prop bet was:

We each had to guess the wieght of 10 people at random, and get them to step on a portable digital scale.

The one who was the closest to the TOTAL WEIGHT of all 10 people combined won.

Dave was off by a total of 326 lbs, I was off on the same guesses by 229 lbs.

So I won.

Sheesh, that's kinda boring. Were we auditioning for a carnival game? I take it you got the job obv since you'll cost them far less teddy bears. I always knew you'd end up in the circus!

Thanks for the chuckles guys! Curious though what did JD have to do if HE lost? Although with those kind of skills there was no way he could lose.....
