  • changing gears

    on making my 3rd trip on wednessday for the £10 +1 with unlimited rebuys i took JMUSSEYS advice and choose to gamble in early round split a pot with 56s when ii got called by 64o on a flop of J 56 and river came J apart from that all my gambles came up losers including all in with AJ on a flop of AJ5 when i was called by Q5o when river came 5.
    i finally made some chips when 4 of us got all in me with AQs manaic (i call him mr rebuy) with KQs(he only played 2 big hands all night this one and AA and lost both but still went into freezeout period chip leader) 69o and 99 were the other hands invloved Flop came QK5 turn 7 river A and i made enough chips so that for once i wasnt short stack in the freezeout period

    SLOWING DOWN

    with only 20 starters i had enough chips here to sit back and wait and still make it into the late stages comfortably with 2 players on y table and 5 on the other table busting out quick and me not getting a card over a 8 in this period it wasnt hard untill i found myself ONE off the button with A6 (remember button pays first ante and next player pays 2nd ante) i try to steal the 2 antes with a pot raise and get called by a player whom i had player with before and could but on any 2 cards .
    when flop came AQ9 he checks and i raise he reraises forgetting to change gear and fold with still plenty of chips i go all in he calls having me covered and flips his A9 and with no Q on the turn or river i bust out when i knew when i made the play it was the wrong one
    lesson learnt is too remember to change gear.

    off to play tonight for a £20 +£2 with unlimited rebuys the last tourny of the year at the casino so i am expecting to see alot of gamblers there if i unlucky (or play bad) i might see you all at the 7pm tourny if not good luck in the big one 2 tomorrow night
