(copying a post i just made on my local forum, its 343am and play resumes at 1PM and id like to work out before heading out so im just pasting this and not formatting etc)
LoL Live Poker.
Me and Frank (buddy I am travelling with, OTT CANADA on stars) just spent the day destroying what is most certainly the softest 1K I have ever played. What a great day!!!
At one point Frank got moved to the table behind, and then we both starting building our stacks, talking to each other back adn forth, which mostly consisted of us updating each others constantly growing stack sizes. Just hilarious. We would get up, talk and laugh amongsts us about how horrible everyone the people at our tables were and just minraised our way to big stacks.
With 30 left, me and Frank were 1 and 2 in chips. We raped the tables sooo badly... I did a lot of 4bet-shoving when people tried to 3bet me since I was opening so much and only got called when I had QQ Frank spent the day making hilarious 3bet click-backs all the time. For those that dont know, 'click-back' is a term that comes from online where instead of entering your raise amount in the textbox you just click the raise button, and re-raise the minimum. Live click-backs are hilarious because it confuses the fuck out of everyone. Frank would click-it-back (cib) , the players would be confused, the dealer would say that the raise size is not enough, Frank would correct the dealer, the dealer would realize Frank is correct, the villain would call-chk-fold and think Frank had AA. LOL
Like any good epic story, there needs to be some sort of set-back for the hero... unfortunately Frank lost a massive flip on the last hand of the day with AK to 99. He is crushed down to 11BB when we restart and I am chip leader with 58BBs. SInce these live donks have no clue about proper shoving ranges (they dont even know calling-ranges exists) im pretty confident Frank will be able to work up his stack as long as villains dont wake up with AQ+TT+.
I myself will be opening 100% of hands when folded to me until we reach the money.
I opened 100% when folded to me for the last 2 orbits tonight but I didnt open that much cause I get the nits had hands and were opening to 3 or 3.5BBs (lol). When I did open it cost me a bit of chips since i had 93, 84o, J2o but I did make a good hero call on the river with 93o on a board of 234Q8. I raised pre from sb and 'decent but not refined' villain defends BB. Chk-chk the 234 flop ( dont want to give him the chance to raise my cbet with a naked Ace) , I bet small on the turn, he calls. I check river and he bets like 40%pot or so. I look at him and say '' I really dont believe you, I think you are bluffing ''. He kind of nods in agreement so I snap him off. He shows KJhigh and I proudly table 93o. I give shoutout to the winner of the 600$ event (online grinder that I talked too yesterday) who is on the rail and cheering for me.
