  • LIVE IN LONDON

    Well i`ve had a tough week and i asked my missus if she would mind if i went out for some poker, she reluctantly said yes.

    Which is good because this would be pointless otherwise.

    Well i arrived at the grosvenor casino victoria for the 10-3 rebuy event scheduled that night.

    I recieved table number 7 and seat 9 (out of 9) the turn out was good with all 72 places filled in double quick time.

    Rebuy period was as usual a lottery with
    one guy happy to call any raise to the river and then fold when he missed. (ATM)
    Next to him a beautiful woman who was directly opposite me, also happen to show off er amply cleavage whenever she dealt (added bonus).

    My game plan for me second ever tourney was to keep it tight and try to avoid calling for chips.


    Several hands in blind 25-50 i get PP Kings in the small blind and a bloke in third position raises it to 250 to call so i put him all in. He turns over jacks and my kings hold up much to my amazement.

    I hit several other good hands where i maximise my winnings and i minimise my loses.

    An hour passes and it comes to the break I have gone from starting from 1000 up to about 3.5k so i add on for another tenner.

    After the break we have only lost 4 people in total so we are still on 9 tables i now have 4.5k just above average for the tourney.

    Over the next 1 1/2 hrs i build my stack up 6.5k with blinds reaching 400-800 and about to rise.

    i have been moved tables and we are now down to just 27 whilst money is top 9 places.

    4 People leave before i get KJs in the big blind the guy in 1st position raises the blind by 2.5k ( i had seen him do this several times whislt sitting out of hands on my table and being nosey) With blinds about to go up to 600-1200 i thought what better time to chance my arm. pot now 4.5k

    I raise him all in for a a further 4.1k giving him just over 2-1 pot odds. he looks as if he is about to fold when the lady next me says " Good Play" this seems to change his mind and he calls.

    He flips over his A8o and i`m in the brown smelly stuff.

    I get no help at all and i finish the tourney in 22 place 13 from the money.

    I played solid/aggressive poker

    But i feel i let myself down on the final hand.

    whats your feelings
