  • Cant'bry FallClassic $100 NLHE

    630 entrants, first place over 20K. Starting Chips 1000, 30 minute rounds. Entry paid for with PSO sponsorship points and I proudly wore my PSO cap.

    My tournament went like this.

    Level 1:

    7-4o Fold
    10-2o Fold
    9-3o Fold
    5-2o Fold

    Level 2:

    7-4o Fold
    10-2o Fold
    9-3o Fold
    5-2o Fold

    Yea, you get the picture - I didn't have one solitary playable hand the first two levels and was down to 900 in starting chips. I couldn't even make positional plays because there was a very, loose Asian lady two seats to my left who called EVERY raise, no matter what the size of it was and had built a stack. I was soooooo waiting to get into a hand with her, being as patient as I could.

    Right at the start of the third level, I received 44 in the BB, and after posting the BB have 850. 3 limpers. I check it. Flop came 6 4 3 two diamonds. I check with the intention of moving in to any bet (in case anyone is drawing). Much to my surprise and delight the last limper moves all in for 725. I call after receiving a count and he shows 77 with one diamond. He's essentially drawing to 4 5's and 2 7's, not a lock, but definitely looking good to nearly double through. Turn was a King of diamonds. River was a 8 of diamonds and I am down to 125 in chips. Very next hand I get AQ of spades, 5 limpers, I move all in, all 5 limpers call (chance to get up to 750 if I win the hand). The flop looks good, two spades, but runner runner club comes and I am out fairly early in the tournament.

    The day was not a complete loss however as I entered two sats, won one (I did a partial chop with the 2nd place finisher giving him $125 of the $550) and played some low limit hold em to kill some time with Jordan and netted about $40 there.

    More to come on Thursday, hopefully with a better ending than today.

    not to be rude or change the subjecft, but i thought the tourny had to have a buy in of 500 or more to use your points? am i wrong here? did it change?

        the way I read the guidelines you can post either sponsorship points entries and live results both under this heading. Maybe I misread how to use this section.

          the reply posters question was that he thought (as I also did) that you could only turn in sponsorship points for buy-ins of 500+. So how was the OP able to buy-in to a $100 tourny?

          not that anyone cares, but if you can use them for a $100 buy-in, many more people will use them since it takes quite a bit longer to accumulate 500SP than 100SP.

          I finished around 80th in this tourney. Got nutty the last hand before the antes started and moved all-in from the SB with KQo against two limpers to my right. Unfortunately one of them had AQ and I was dominated with no K's to come on the board. Should have saved my modest stack and kept waiting.

          Any comments on the outrageous entry fees Canterbury is charging. I mean $25 entry on a $100 tourny. Thats a 25% juice!!! I think Daniel N. would have a hard time overcoming those odds.

            As far as I can tell, the original question of how Aaron's $100 entry was paid through sponsorship points has never been answered.

            It needs to be. Maybe Tina will let us know.
