maybe I missed a thin value bet, but I didn't want to fold to raise on the river.

break time again 8 hours into the game. 2/4 chip leader has 230 bb , gonna be tough.

ok so we made a deal 3 handed $1405.28 win my biggest to date....

then I went on to win, which would have been just under $2k.

Overall really happy with my play, maybe a few mistakes.

This would be good to review in a live training, dave already did one for me a few months back gareth has had a lot good runs and I would like to hear his view on some plays.

Congrats on your first big score donkeyjez


I actually railed for the FT and until the deal was made. I have limited experience with FTs but I do have some thoughts about the dynamics leading up to the deal, and the deal itself.


The chip leader, to your right had at least 150+BB.


The other villain, except one hand where he cold 4 bet.. was limping into unopened pots and basically folding in his blinds during 3handed play and most of 4handed, and had around 30-35BB.


I think you had near 50BB or close to it.


blinds were 225000/450000.


It was mistake of the chip leader to leave so much tev.. and to do so with icm.


When deal discussions were going on... shorter stack said it was 9am and he hadn't slept yet. The big stack initiated the pre-deal discussion saying he was tired. I think your timezone it would have been midday or early arvo.


Considering the above, and how the shorter villain was playing soft, and with the big stack to your right... this is a perfect situation for you.


Even though the big stack at one time was saying no deal let's play (because you wanted 1.5k), remember he was the one who initiated talks of dealing (with 150+BB).


I would have said that it was daytime, and there was still a lot to play with our stacks.... to make them think it will still be a very long game (and it could realistically still be another hours+ worth of play with those chips).


Likely that if you would have taken most of the soft villains chips, this would give you near 1:2 ratio vs chip leader during HU... then it's his tourney to lose. And the option to open up a deal later with close gaps between stacks is suitable.


But ofc, if you felt that at the time, villains were outplaying you, then dealing is OK here. But understand also that this is your first big score and these situations don't come often enough as we would like for all of us....


...just my thoughts as a bystander.




Enjoy the score...

thx guys

I've seen you at a few of my tables marc

I have to agree with you on the deal situation, the short stack was playing way too tight. I felt like I had an edge over both and that's why I asked for 1.5k. Looking back I wish a had stuck to 1.5k or play on, ah well.

Not my first win , just the most in one game

I'm sad I didn't come across this thread whilst the deep run was happening

That's an awesome bankroll boost you had there! . How long was the tourney? Those Big Tourneys have relatively long blind levels, you must have been playing for hours!

Great job and I'm looking forward to seeing some of your hands!
