Back to the grind

Wednesday, February 6, 2008 9:47 | Filled in poker

I wound up sleeping a shocking amount, so I didn’t get too much play in yesterday. Most of my play was two tabling 15/30, where I ran into my old friend RocketPlayer. I had a weird session at his table where nothing was working and the table was good. There was one guy in particular who seemed pretty bad. Despite sitting next to each other, Rocket and I mostly stayed out of each other’s way. The one time I did three bet him, he got the best of me. This hand pretty much illustrates the respect that the table paid to me and my raises:

Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with , . MP1 posts a blind of $15.
UTG calls, 1 fold, Hero raises, MP1 (poster) calls, 1 fold, MP3 calls, 2 folds, SB calls, BB calls, UTG calls.
I know I’m a bit aggro with old raises, but 5 callers to an EP raise is a bit much even for me.

Flop: (12 SB) , , (6 players)
SB bets, BB folds, UTG calls, Hero raises, MP1 calls, MP3 calls, SB calls, UTG calls.
One guy folds to the donk bet from the SB, no one folds to my raise. Of course.

Turn: (11 BB) (5 players)
SB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets, MP1 calls, MP3 calls, SB calls, UTG calls.
In the back of my mind, I think they are sandbagging with a made flush. I mean with 5 players on a flush board, one of them has to have the flush draw, right?

River: (16 BB) (5 players)
SB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets, MP1 calls, MP3 calls, SB folds, UTG folds.
I admit that this bet might well be a mistake, but when you see the showdown, you might change your mind about that.

Final Pot: 19 BB
Results in white below:
Hero has Ac Ah (one pair, aces).
MP1 shows Kd Js.
MP3 shows Kc 6c.
Outcome: Hero wins 19 BB.

K6s? Are you kidding me? I note that Rocket folded pre-flop from UTG+1, so I’m not saying anything bad about him.

Anyhow, I ended up just over +$400 and my VPP count stands at 1,117 which is still well behind pace (I should be at 1,785). However, given that I’ve only played 2 days out of 5, I think I’m fine.
