  • moxie's challenge (round 3)

    I don't have KO details on all of the earlier ones but will start posting them for the games not completed.
    First 10 games:
    14th, 6th, 4th, 11th, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 5th, 8th, 5th (7 of 10 ITM)
    Second 10 games:
    3rd, 16th (AA cracked), 7th, 6th, 11th, 6th, 7th, 2nd, 5th, 11th (14-20 ITM)
    game 20 KO was with J's full of 9's that was beat by quad J

    So far, no variance streaks (except getting a bunch of coolers as soon as I get ITM), which is good in the fact that I cashed, but could have easily turned 5th/6th's into wins-3rds with wins in a single hand.

    long night of being card dead (although if I can only go card dead 2 of 22 games, I'll take that all day long).

    21: 9th shoved KQs, missed my 2 overs to the board AND the flush draw when opp flopped 9's.
    22: 8th hate bubbling. finally get a hand, flop a flush... booted by higher flush.

    14-22 ITM now

      played the next set of three games.

      # 23 - out in 18th A7s and got flop of AKQ vs calling station. pushed (only play I could make due to the current pot size), called by K2o that turned a K

      # 24 - out in 11th TOTALLY CARD DEAD

      # 25 - BINK (15-25 ITM)

      the win makes up for the previous 5 that were not ITM.

        # 26: out in 18th. SICK BEAT. QQ with Q high rainbow flop, shove. 2 callers (A8 and KQ of hearts)..... runner, runner hearts... GONE Win that hand, I've got a top 2 chip stack.

        # 27: out in 12th card dead. finally got 44, shove, get 3 pair, opp has 10's for higher 3 pair.

        # 28: 6th. went card dead at FT that nobody was dropping at. Got to 5BB and caught 88, so all-in, opp had JJ and flopped another one. Wanted a lot better, but at least it was an ITM.

        16-28 ITM now

          # 29: 6th place. doing well, then went card dead at final table
          # 30: 16th got A 10 in BB, flop A 10 x, shoved (just over pot sized bet), called by QJo that rivers a K
          # 31: 5th same basic game as # 29. did great until final table, then went card dead

            # 32: 8th lost most chips with 11 left as had KQ on button, raised flop of AAK, BB had A rag. Then went card dead from there.

            # 33: 13th shoved A9 on button from 9th stack, small blind woke up with AK. got top pair on flop, but no 9.

            # 34: 5th card dead once I got to final table, shoved J10s from button... into AA

            guess I'm hitting the variance streak, but still 19-34 ITM.

              A bit better run in these three.

              # 35: 2nd when HU, my A9 lost to 24o and Q 10 lost to J2. got the chips in good both when called the opps shoves (they shoved almost every hand) and got..... Tht UNLUCK of the draw. Did everything I could correctly, so happy with my play.

              # 36: 4th good run until final table, where I went card dead. lost 1/2 chips with K7s that was beat by river J (J3o) when I turned a 7. A3s (pushed pre) beat by K 10 off when they flopped a K.

              # 37: 10th. shoved AQ with 8th chip stack, called by J 10 off that rivered a J

              21-37 ITM now

                but these 3 are awful....

                # 38: 17th flop top 2 pair, board gets 4 to str8, so had to muck. TWICE. shoved 33 from short stack, called by 10's and the best hand held

                # 39: 11th short stack due to AK and AQ getting drawn out on. get a straight on short stack, 6 8 9 10 board and I've got a 7....... Jersey Ron has QJs.... the one hand I was worried about. Pot odds said I had to go, so did.

                # 40: 12th several small pairs miss, AK, AQ, AJs all miss, get AK isolated vs station so shove last 7BB.... station wakes up with JJ that holds.

                21-40 ITM

                  This will make up for the 3 from last night. # 41: BINK I need to find these people in the quarter games when the US is back. Check this one out. # 42: 20th had 77 with flop of 10 6 2 from short stack (good folds earlier when I didn't have the best hand) shoved and was called by 6 9 off... turn.. 6 # 43: 5th nada for cards, milked it for everything I could. 23-43 ITM

                    # 44: 2nd picked spots mostly well, couldn't catch a break HU

                    # 45: 20th KJs, flop top 2 pair, value bet, blank on turn, value bet again and shoved on by bully caling station (was happy to see him shove). call. opp has Q 10... river... A.

                    # 46: 12th totally card dead, shoved 22 from button as short stack, called by BB with ace/rag that flopped an A. having a card dead game didn't surprise me after a win and 2nd in last few games.

                    24-46 ITM

                        # 50 : 9th CARD DEAD. they were so good I saw a whopping 6% of flops (ONE FLOP TOTAL if you don't count free from BB) # 51: 9th Q9 vs calling station. flop Q 7 2... shove called by 75 off... turn 5 knew he didn't have a Q and knew I was ahead. Wanted chips for deep run instead of folding to a cash. Got them in when I was ahead # 52: BINK umbup: bad hand early where AJs got flushed on the river, but rebounded from it. Went card dead down 5-1 in chips when started HU. got to being down 20-1 in chips, then started sandbagging the opp. Trapped them 4 times for double ups. Won when KK turned into a boat, K's full of 2's, to AJ. # 53: 4th solid game with not much for cards. Went out when 55 got called by 56s that rivered a flush. The luckbox that took me out took JerseyRon out in 2nd too. Pretty good run by Ron and me in the three we played. 4 of 6 ITM (with a win and a 2nd) and 6 for 6 with final tables

                          # 54: 2nd lost a bunch of chips when down to 3 left (AJ, AQ three times, AK twice all missed). Hand that ko'd me was A2s HU from a short stack due to those 6 chip losses.. ran into KK.

                          # 55: 15th card dead the entire way. Caught AK with only a nit and a station behind me, so I shoved and was called by the station that had KK

                          # 56: 6th not realy any noteworthy hands. Shoved with A6 on an A high flop, called by A4 that turned a 4.

                          # 57: 23rd I had KK and got it all in against 99.... board... 6 7 8 10 J

                          # 58: 12th card dead the entire tourney at a table of calling stations that ko'd everyone but themselves. A4s with 3BB left due to blind increase and shoved from button. Called by the 4 stations. Thought I had at least a chop with A K 5 5 8 board.... but.. three were hearts and one of the stations had J2 of hearts.

                          # 59: kept getting pkt pairs that were beat. shoved with 77 with 5BB left and tripled up to get me a playable stack. then go card dead back to 8BB. Get QQ from SB and raise after UTG limped. Shoved the rest on the flop of 5 10 J... UTG had 55 for a set. Needed a double up to get ITM and could do a ton worse than QQ.

                          29-59 ITM

                            variance run night.

                            # 60: 23rd short stacked due to a bad river that I folded on (4 to flush on board when I had TPTK and was ahead before the river). 66, limped from late into 5-way pot. flop 6 9 J (2 diamonds), pushed. Called by A dia J sp runner/runner diamonds

                            # 61 15th shoved AJ from late position when I needed a double up to get ITM, called by BB with 22 board have 5 blanks for both of us

                            # 62 10th 10 left and I'm 9th in chips. Might get ITM, but a double up would really help. Get 9 10 diamonds in SB and complete with everyone in the pot. flop Q 10 9 SHOVE. 2 callers, one of them was the table calling station (knew I had beat and had total air), other being the only other legit player in the tourney, Jersey Ron, that had QQ.

                              # 63: 10th KJ suited lost to 55 but the hand that crippled my stack was QQ being folded on river to a 4-straight # 64: 9th shoved 77 preflop, called by K 10 that gets a board of K K # 65: 3rd grinder special, didn't have chips the whole game. Shoved A3 and ran into pkt 7's. # 66: 9th Shoved A7 as low stack of the three left, called by 2 4 off that flops a pair of ducks # 67: 6th # 68: 3rd another grinder special. Shoved Q7s and called by 34o that got a 3 on the flop # 69: 19th Losing hand was shoving K 10 off into QQ, hand that crippled me was pocket 10's getting a set that turned into a 8 9 10 J board # 70: 5th Shoved AQ into pocket 10's # 71: 4th Shoved AKs from SB. 2 callers, AQ and K 10 river.. Q 34-71 ITM
