Hit my first 5fig score last thursday in the ipoker 50r. Had came 23rd in it the day before and took it down on the thursday.

It was pretty useful after a bad 3/4 day spell opening July and spewing about $2K over that time. Not many interesting spots from the tournament because it was such a crapshoot and CL was at 10x the whole time. Having QQ > AK+A3 with 11 left was useful so i entered the final 1/9. Didn't get up to much until about 5 left where i got it in with A3s > TJs. Then after that it was pretty plain sailing and i started moving chips about and got HU pretty much even in chips. 800K each @ 20/40K. He kept r/f the button which abled me to get him 4:1 in chips before AJd > AQo ftw.

So after winning that i told Rich i'd put him in the DTD£300 that w/e. Met Rich at the hotel at about 3:30 and just lay around in the hotel room til about 6. The got some food and hit DTD to start crushing. Starting with 10K and 45min levels the structures perfect. I managed to spin to 21K before the end of level 1:

Stack: ~11K, MP: ~8K, LP: ~10K. I hold Qc Qd in EP.
Preflop: I raise to 150, MP flats, LP 3bets 625. Me and MP both flat.
Flop: 5c 2s 2d, I check, MP bets 1500, LP calls;

here i was like, hmmm standard live guy spew line for LP is to flat AK/AQ here. But just to check he doesn't actually have AA or KK, I'll just flat it and re-eval turn. Also c/r the flop will v likely shove everything i beat out, and get everything that has me beat re-shoving.

Turn: 9h, I check, MP shoves 5800, LP folds. LP folding made the decision easy. So course I call waiting to see some moron hand like A5o lol. He tables 77. [ ] wp sir. LP says he folded 77 too, so i have to fade the 0 outer, which i manage. So sick if LP calls/rejams his 77.

So up to 20dimes @ 25/50 life is ok. Started raising a decent% of hands pre and shelling at flops and generally maintaining my stack.

The next hand of interest i can remember is @ 200/400/50:

My stack: ~25K, MP1: ~10K, MP2: ~15K. I hold 46o in the sb.
Preflop: MP1, MP2, Btn all limp, I make up sb, bb checks.
Flop: 4s As 6d, I check, MP1 bets 1,000, MP2 flats.

MP2 is really spewy so will probs stack off an A here so i c/r to 6,500. MP1 dwell folds and MP2 rejams with 82s. I turn another 6 and its gg sir.

So up to 40K @ 200/400/50, life is still good. Then we get into a huuuuge pot @ 300/600.

My stack: ~41K, C/O: ~38K. I hold AKo on the btn.
Preflop: c/o raises to 2,400, I 3bet to 10,050 and he thinks for under 5 seconds before shoving. 3bet folding would be a huge mistake here, and we're flipping a lot here so i pretty much snap the 38K off. He tables KK. The board rolls of a cruel x-x-x-A-K. loooooool, no need for tht. but w/e gglife a 80K pot ships to him.

Photo evidence of my run badders, [X] Bad River:

Left with 3K i get it in with T4c > QJc to double but then KK guy opens utg for 3,400 @ 400/800, I jam AKo for 7,100 and MP3 cold 4bt jams for 28K. utg dwells forever and folds AKo face up. MP3 shows QQ and holds vs me.

Not done much online, blew the crypto20K with 4 left the other day. Had it won but spewed and busted in 4th for $1.5K which broke me even for the day. Off to York Races on sat, so will probs spew loads lol, hopefully i can nip Brent for tips and ship it crucial. Gonna hit this sunday hard as its dble gtd's on stars! weeee. Hopefully i'm not too fked from saturday to grind well.

[ ] gg.

October was a pretty sick month including my most successful day to date. Sportsbook I managed to scoop the party 500f for 18K and the party 100f for an extra 5.5K on the same sunday. Managed to win that same 100f 12 days later for another 5.5K. Thats the main online success out the way. Went on quite a few live trips in Oct + early Nov including APAT £300f, online casino Dublin €150f, Teeside £500f, DTD £300f as well as a couple of drunken trips to the Alea.
Went pretty deep in the APAT and busted about 18th or so. Got a tonne of chips together but it got pretty crapshooty and i busted jamming ATo into the btn opens AA.
Ireland was total com, flew over on friday morning with Brent, Sledge and Rich. Got stuck into the torny straight away and managed to have a sick last few levels going from 30K to 180K. We got the day off on saturday so went into Temple Bar to watch some footy and have a few drinks. the €120f, somehow Maria, Rooks, march madness Sledge, Brent and myself all ended up on the same table, so hilarity ensued everytime any1 lost a pot. Me and Rooks kept getting slowrolled before i finally busted. Don't go to dublin if u hate slowrollers imo. Day 2 of the torny started off slow, then I upped it a bit nearing the bubble. Managed to win a huge pot with AK > AQ to get to about 400K but got into 2 really awkward spots where I couldn't fold to jams and ended up losing A2 vs 99, AT vs AK for a huge one and finally ran K8h into 99 vs the eventual winner to bust 49th for €650.
