Talvez seja o fato de haver muito nos dias de hoje, mas o pensamento de ficar no Ballsbridge Inn nos últimos fins de semana passado, Ukipt, simplesmente não me atraiu.Com isso em mente, decidi jogar o dia 1-espero voltar no sábado para o segundo dia.
Minha mesa de partida foi agradável o suficiente, mas eu não conseguia nada cedo.Foi silencioso um primeiro primeiro nível, pois de fato dobrava quatro jogadores, mas nunca tive mais do que começar a empilhar.
Uma tabela se move no nível cinco quando minha pilha estava em 8k viu uma mudança de sorte.Parecia uma mesa mais difícil com o cara que venceu a perna de cortiça e um finalista de Edimburgo, mas uma boa corrida de cartas viu minha pilha atingir 40k em 30 minutos na mesa.
Eu entrei pelo resto do dia e ensacei 57k, que era apenas 50 grandes e à frente da média para o segundo dia.
One thing that really pissed me off on day one was that they cleared the main room floor of 20 tables for €100 side event meaning 12 tables from the main event were dumped in a sweatbox room upstairs with no AC.
When I saw the redraw its was obvious there would be plenty action on the new table with the Thomas 'Bomber' Nolan dynamic in play. Bomber is an action player, but he also seem to effect action from others on the table and that was the case here.
One had in the first level of day two, I actually managed to chip up 30 bigblinds ( 60% of average chips ) Pre-flop. Bomber opened, I 3-bet to 7.5x - Padge Barry made it 15x - Bombers calls and I jam to win the pot; I didn't have it.
This brought me over 100k but my momentum was stopped soon after when a relatively shortstack shoved 910 over my A9 button open and got there.
Level 3 of the day with blinds 1k/2k was where my pivotal hand of the tournament occurred. We were about 35 off the money and I was playing about 75k at the start of the hand. Bomber opened and a young polish player who was clearly steaming after been shown a bluff from Bomber a few hands before flatted, I called the button with KdQd.
The flop was 9 7 4 with two diamonds and Bomber lead for a near pot 15k and the Polish player shoved for 40k. My thinking here is Bomber had a hand with one pair probably a nine and was just trying to take down the pot while the shover range was wide enough considering his disposition and contained many worse draws to mine.
I felt I could fold Bomber out and would have 15 outs twice a lot of the time or could even be possibly ahead with King high. Anyway being the optimistic I am I went with it, bomber folded and I was 54.5 % favorite against my opponents pocket tens getting 2/1 for my 40k.
If I had hit it would of given me a lovely stack to attack the bubble with and was well worth the risk, unfortunately I didn't and would exit soon after shoving AJ over the same players AQ cut-off open.
Essa é a segunda UKIPT consecutiva que basicamente fiz para o meu torneio em uma panela grande com um empate.Eu tenho entrado com a intenção de jogar para obter uma pilha por causa do tamanho do campo e da estrutura de pagamento plano, para que eu não possa reclamar.
