I've run pretty good the last couple of days and i'm up about 5k. The 5-10 games havent been running consistently so i stepped down and played some 3/6, which turned out pretty well. Apparently i only run good in China. I made an interesting bluff for about 200 bbs, which i'm not sure i shouldve made, but i'm still ok with it. It went something like this. Reg opens utg, one caller, i call on the button w/ KTo, flop comes T55 rainbow. Reg c-bets 50 ish into 70, other guy folds, i call. Turn is a 3. He bets 125. At this point i feel like his hand is almost always an overpair and hes valuetowning me. I decide to turn my hand into a bluff and make it 300, setting up a pot size shove on the river. He calls. River is a brick, I think a 9, he checks, i shove, he snap calls w/ TT. I'm not too upset w/ my play, i think itd work most of the time. I can very credibly represent a 5 or T's full, or maybe even floated w/ 33 on spiked 3's full, and hes a good enough player to fold, plus i didnt think he wanted to get stacked for 200 bbs, w/ an overpair.
On another note, how fucking beast is Ivey? Anyone who says the best in the world is anyone but Ivey is out of their minds. Hes a monster in all forms of poker, online cash, live cash, live tournaments, nlhe, plo, limit games, everything. I think he might be the only player who could sit at a table full of specialists and hold his own. Imagine winning 3 bracelets in one year and one of them being the ME? So nasty. If he wins this he'll have by far the most earnings of any player from tournament poker. Thats all i got for now, GO IVEY!
