I am absolutely killing the 30/60 game at Party these days.Â I’ve finally hit the point where I am immune to the ups and downs and believe that I am completely playing my A game without regard to the money.
I made a correct calldown with Queen high in a blind steal situation that I am very pleased with.Â The player in question defends his BB like it is a personal insult that you raised and he check-raises the flop 100% of the time.Â The flop was J54 and I had QT so I called the check-raise.Â He insta-bet both the turn 9 (which I could easily call with my oesd and probable good pair outs) and the Ace on the river.Â He is one of those players who will only bet the river with a really strong hand or a bluff.Â Given the pot size and the fact that I really thought he was at least 25% to be bluffing here, I called with Queen high which was good.Â It did seem to encourage some people to value bet the river a bit more, but I’m very rarely calling down with Queen high and I didn’t mind.
Anyhow, I’m up a substantial share of the direct buy-in for the WSOP ME since my last post and it seems to me that it would be smarter for me to just play ring games and buy in directly than to waste a lot of time playing sats.Â Even if I don’t move to 50/100, I think I can easily generate the buy in.Â I’ve also had three different people express an interest in buying a piece of my action (probably fueled by the guy on 2+2 who just won the Party Poker Million and won a bunch of cash for his backers).Â I think I might be willing to sell 30% or so of my action, but I think I’d only want sell relatively small pieces to any one person.Â A friend at work wants to buy half of my fee, but I don’t think I’d be comfortable putting so much of another person’s money at risk.
I’m also thinking that if I play in the Main Event, I might also want to play in a preliminary event, just to get used to the environment at the Rio. Â Maybe I’m crazy today.Â I have to think about it some more.
