  • PLHE at Napoleons in Hull

    Just got back from the casino having won the tourny YEE HAW
    The game is a £5 entry with unlimited £5 rebuy for the first 2 hours

    I get there and yet again there r 12 or 13 to a table, really cramped for room

    First hand KK i raise the pot get 5 callers A6 wins with FH A's full of 6s. Here we go again all my good hands getting beaten by muck and then i remembered a recent post about attitude and thought never mind next time they will win, dont get defeatist.

    An hour later AA, i raise the pot get two callers, flop comes 6 8 3 i raise all in and get 1 caller with 3 9 turn is a 7 river an A I Win This gives me some breathing space (and i needed it). I then got nothing for the next hour and was down to 700 left (antes r at 100 during the rebuy) last hand in the rebuy period i get KK middle position fortunatly someone raise 200 and this made the pot big enough to raise allin so i did got 5 callers and won with nothing helping anyone.

    For the next hour i played very little, only free cards and AK once.
    built my stack slightly but not by much. But they say patience is a virtue and i was feeling very virtuous.

    We get down to 12 left and im dealt qq i raise the pot and take it down unopposed, 2 hands later im in the blind and get kk again it comes to me unraised with 4 callers so i raise the pot again, everyone notices that i play tight so they all fold. Then down to 11 and utg raises allin and i look down and see KK in the bb i call, she shows jj a K first out takes it down and im in the money WOO HOO

    We then break for half an hour and i go get some free food and come back to final table with a middling stack and just sit and wait for a hand.

    The first four hands r amazing KK vs AA, AA vs KK vs AQ, AA vs JJ and AA vs KK again, i had muck but enjoyed as the underdog won everytime and took us down to 8 left.

    I procceded to fold relegiously as i didnt see a card above a 9 for the first 5 rounds, eventually im blinded out next hand im in the bb and it gets folded to sb who just checks ( the blinds are the same amount eg 100 and 100) I raise with A7 he calls with Q6 and i treble thru. next hand QQ the guy who i just beat raised the pot and i raised allin he calls this time with JT I Double up again.

    Were now down to 5 left and im feeling quite excited now when the guy to my left goes all in and gets called by AK his Q3 doesnt hold up and were down to 4 left.

    We all look around and decide to chop it then and there. The two big stacks take £200 and myself and the other guy who has about the same as me take £150 and im absolutly exstatic.

    Its my first money finish, and i spent £5 entry with 1 rebuy, £10 in total ($15 dollars) to win £150.

    I have to give many thanks to everyone at PSO for this, without all you guys and gals i couldnt have done.

    Sorry for going on a bit but im mighty happy at the moment.

    Cheers and Thanks

            It just goes to show that the old adage is correct. The Sun does indeed shine on every dog's arse someday.
