second bullet – i wanted chips

Published in tournaments, updated news - recent posts

not much to say here that isnt said in the video. on the hand i busted out on i had a monster draw. beyond a monster draw – it was like an alien super space invader draw…that monstrous. top pair with an open ended straight flush draw. JT of spades in position – flop 8s9sJ. bet, raise, i shove. one fold and the guy makes a crying call with queens. i can’t blame him cos it looked like a squeeze although on the other hand it should have looked super strong coming from a tight player (up til them) like myself (ie 2 pair or a set). needless to say my gabillion outs never came and i was sent packing. yeah i could’ve played it differently but i thought that was my window to take it down there and chip up nicely. even if i did get called i had a gabillion outs. i was determined to get chips early – that was part of the underlying motivation to push that situation and force these guys into really tough decisions. yeah “that’s poker for ya” but most people at this level arent going to fold queens even if it was for their tournament life. i don’t like that expression …even though i guess it does sort of sum it up. next.
