First hand back, AK in BB. Cutoff makes it 240 (3x). I re-raise to 600. He folds.
Hmmm, I fold 4h5h from UtG+2 when UtG+1 makes it 3x. Awfully conservative, but with 5 more players with position, it would be wishful thinking that I could call here. And I am not raising. So I fold. So does everyone else. Oh dear.
Hmmm, rotation later UtG limps, so I limp behind (UtG+1) with with 88. Flop is 24T so I bet 200 into 350 after UTG and BB checks. Re-raised all-in for 540 by BB and UTG limper folds. Must call. He has Q4 for middle pair and I win a pot but I can hardly call this an interesting hand.
Flop bottom pair in the BB vs. single limper. He c-bets 100 into 350, so I check-call. But when he bets 300 on turn, I check-fold. Again, very conservative. (the next hand, 2 players go broke at the table AK,AQ,JJ pile their money in pre-flop with the AQ CALLING the other 2 all-ins!)
Folded to me in cutoff and I fold A9o. Meh. No good can come of it at 50/100.
I also fold AJo UtG+1, without apologies.
(Interesting Hand #6) When I get AJo in the BB and that guy from the last hand (when I flop bottom pair with 23) makes it 3x, I reraise him this time. Oops, he calls. Flop is Q38 with 2 hearts and I check, he also checks. Turn is a 7 (non-heart). I lead out for 900 (into 1700) and he folds! Phew. (AJ also? AK? middling pair? Who can say?) I had to bet to win, vs. getting a better hand to fold rule.
Hmmm, fold 33 to a raise of 480 (I have 5700) in Hijack because I think its a bad spot and too many chips. Cutoff makes it 1200. Nice fold me.
Make it 3x with AQs UtG, no callers.
Same guy on my right raises AGAIN and I fold 66, Cutoff AGAIN re-raises (all-in) and this time he calls. He had ATs and the cutoff KK. Lame.
Easy Fold KJ UtG.
(#7) Cutoff raises to 565, I re-raise from SB to 1700, Cutoff thinks and shoves with QhJh??? Hope-a-tron! Snap-call with AA holds up.
Get frisky with my image and raise from MP (First in) to 500 with 7c8c and all folds. 300 chips for me.
Call Button min-raise from BB with KdTd. Flop is Ah6h9d. I check, he bets 400 and I sit and think. But fold. -400 chips for me.
Folds around to me on button and yet I still fold 5To. Gimme a T... Gimme an I... Gimme a G...
Battle of the blinds and I have Ac7c. I flop TP AND 2 clubs. He leads out for min but he only has $1800 behind? What do I even do here? He is WAY behind, but every card will be an over. I just shove hoping to look like the naked flush draw. He tanks, but eventually folds. (Note: avg is 7.7k, so what does he lead out with here? Napkins I assume?)
At second break, I have $10.8k, Avg is 8.3k (Q=1.2ish) 575 of our now 1588 runners left (pays 189).
