day two of the Bellagio $10,000 five
diamond World Poker Tour event it’s about fifty five thousand ships we’re
going to hopefully bag around 200 thousand after six levels of play
90-minute levels table draw looks pretty good le ledger on my right couple short
stacks on my left San Diego businessman crazy Asian High Roller guy so we know
we’re working with we’re going to adjust appropriately today I put on my twenty
thousand dollar profit hoodie let’s hope it’s lucky again how lucky
can one guy be I kissed her she kissed me like the fella once said ain’t that a
kick in the head with blinds ants 500 1000 1000 Alex
Greenblatt opens under the gun plus 1into 2200 I’m a middle position with
pocket aces 55,000 stack mandatory 3 bet to 7000 folds back to him and he puts in
the call the flop comes Jack 9 8 2 diamonds we don’t have a diamond he
checks bad board for our range good board for his range he has all the
pocket jacks pocket nines pocket eats green ten suited etc so we check behind
turns a queen putting a one card straight out their pocket tens now beats
us he checks and don’t see any reason to bet here I check the rivers a deuce he
checks again think about which hands I can get value from they are limited to
collie king queen and ace queen so I check again
he shows king queen of spades and we take down a nice pot right now I’m
65,000 with blinds at 500 1000 action folds to
us on the button I’ve ace queen offsuit make it 2200 in both blinds fold the
very next hand it folds to be in the cutoff I have King 8 of diamonds make it
2200 the small blind who’s a apparently a high-roller Asian businessman of some
sort puts in the call and the big blind calls the flop comes Jack 9 7 2 diamonds
action checks to me I definitely could bet here but this flop does favor their
range slightly and if we check behind and turn straight or a flush our hand is
very disguised so I checked the turn is the 10 of diamonds I make a straight and
I make a flush and I block all straight flushes small blind Asian High Roller
bets 3500 big blind raises to 10,200 what do I do here I think raised would
be a little bit too strong I can fold out worse flushes and we still have
position so I’m going to put in the call and play various rivers I call and the
small blind also calls king queen did get there and all eight axes are
straight and there might be some lower flushes I’m pretty confident I have the
best hand with the second nuts here the river brings an Ace of Spades
inconsequential card considering the board small blind shacks and the big
blind goes deep into the tank a few minutes and checks so now we got to
think about what type of bet we can get value from at least one of our two
opponents think 20,000 is a nice round fun number so that’s what I bet the
Asian High Roller and the small blind shoves all in for thirty-eight thousand
just under a minute how can this be a bluff does he have the queen-high flush
or does he have the ace high flush I think he might just called the
queen-high flush the big blind disgustingly folds she probably has King
Queen for a straight or maybe a real low flush I’m not loving it but getting over
a five to one I think we just got a call with the second nuts I put in the call
and he shows Queen nine I think queen of clubs nine of spades and I eliminate a
player and I now have 130,000 chips in the Bellagio 10k what a gift let’s keep
the ball rolling Ron first break with blinds at 600 1200 with a 1200 big blind
action folds to Stanley on my right he’s in the high Jack he makes it 2,800 nice
to act with ace Queen suited a flatted six is the previous hand so we’re gonna
flat the ace Queen also Asian male aged thirty to sixty on my direct left he
just doubled up and commented on his happy doesn’t have to rebuy shoves all
in for twenty-six thousand two hundred Stan folds and the action is to me I
started the hand with about 125,000 I can definitely afford to gamble but I do
fear we’re up against a hand like a skiing or kings but we’re here to win
sometimes you got to put it all on the line I put in the call he shows pocket
tens the flop comes Queen ten deuce two diamonds
turns the seven of hearts and the river is the sixth we double him
up Oh with lions at 600 1200 with the 1200 big
blind ante few minutes left in the 90-minute level I’ve been very active so
I opened up King at 10:00 with the King of Hearts in the under the gun plus
three Shannon Shore flats the button and
Kristen Bicknell flats the small blind three ways to a flop flop comes Jack
five five two hearts pretty good forward for me to see bet I bet fifty two
hundred Shannon Shore calls Shannon Shore started the hand with the
bow it’s thirty thousand Kristen Bicknell folds the turn is an off suit
King great card for our hand now the question is should I check or he has
about a pot size show up behind I want to show but I don’t think I’m gonna get
value from his jack axe I think he might fold that and you think he might fold
out his flush draws maybe we can get him to maybe I can check and get him to
overvalue his jack axe or pocket pair or jam the flush draw undecided I check and
he checks the river is an East not a hurt I think we have good showdown value
still putting him on a Jack X or a small pair type of hand let’s see how
specifically to ace high flush draw which should be good I check and he bets
14500 is it turning a jack into a bluff does he still have a small pair did he
miss his flush draw or is he going for value with a sex of hearts pocket jacks
or maybe a few combos of 5x that he didn’t bet the turn there’s only one way
to find out we put in the call and he shows East Jack
we’re now in second break with just over 50,000 not a good level let’s turn it
around the room was completely black I hadn’t the she hugged with blinds that’s 1000 1500 1500 I
folded every hand for 80 minutes that’s right but the exception of completing
with pocket sixes in the big blind in a threeway and all over is coming check
folding I haven’t played one hand a lot of discipline required there let’s see
if it pays off 10 minutes remaining in level action folds to the highjack who
shoves all in for 18,500 next to act with 35,000 and east the Jack of
Diamonds easy riche of the blinds fold or up against Queen Jack offsuit flops a
queen king queen x turns a 9 rivers of brick and we lose a huge crucial pot next levels 1000 2000 with a 2009 the
big blind coming back from break that’s right
25% of my stack will be in the middle hopefully I get a good hand like this
say less head and that’ll hold my head keep spinning
I just need pinky kirinda first hand back from break action folks to Matt
Salzburg middle position he shoves 20000 holds me in the big blind and I have 6 3
offsuit and I fold six deuce off suit in the small blind there’s a raise and I
fold action folds to me in middle position i.e s– three of hearts shove
it in shannon shore ISOs he has pocket sevens the board comes Jack deuce deuce
deuce 3 2 pair no good and I’m out of the Bellagio $10,000 5 diamond event
