The World Series of Poker $2,620 Marathon Event


26:20 the marathon two thousand six hundred
and twenty dollar buying 100-minute levels twenty six thousand two hundred
ships to start it’s a five-day event so we’re on day one of five no reentry
late reg till second level of day two one of the sickest structures imaginable
it’s game plan going in is to do the opposite of what I think my opponents
are gonna do and that means we’re gonna be super aggressive
they’re probably thinkin a it’s a marathon I can just wait around wait for
good spots we’re gonna go after every spot three bets C bets barrels it’s
gonna be very volatile but should be profitable in the long run you got to
get lucky to win a tournament so we’re gonna try to make our own luck today see
you guys I’m day two upon arriving at my table I’m in c2 and c1 is symbol guy
from the World Series of Poker Main Event that’s right the psycho that
clashed the symbols behind me when I busted at the end of day two is sitting
directly on my right two ways I can go about this
I can berate him all day long and make the situation as uncomfortable as
possible or I can say nothing not engage and just play my game focus on this big
buy-in tournament it’s tough choice but I think I’m gonna
go with Plan B let’s just win all the chips win all the money the glory
that’ll be the real winner with lines at 5100 middle position makes
it 300 I’m in the small blind with queen jack of spades 20 mm stack I make it
1,200 he asked to see my stack we all started together I’ve lost a few small
pots for 250 blinds deep and he puts in the floor bed to 3300 Queen Jack no good
from the small blind and we fold with blinds at 5100 psycho symbol guy
open limps I read this is weakness I’m next to act with pocket tens were seven
handed so I raise it up to 500 off a 22 K stack small blind calls and a symbol
guy calls for 300 flop the flop comes eight eight deuce
two hearts I have the ten of Hearts great pop my hand small blind checks
symbol guy checks I bet six hundred small blind postures
up looks at the flop and check raises to sixteen hundred symbol guy folds and I
think it’s a pretty easy call you could have a lot of flush draws mid pairs
trying to find out where he’s had the turn is an off suit ace and he checks I
am somewhat afraid of a sex of Hearts but I think it’s more likely he’s just
trying to pot control one of his smaller mid pairs so I want to go for value I
get good value from his flush draws that want to continue out of position and his
mid pairs if he has me beat let’s let’s keep the damage to a minimum so I do the
same bet 1600 he calls river is an off suit for each X I don’t think I can get
much more value from his mid pairs so I’m happy to go to showdown I check and
he shows he’s got not sure what is again pocket jacks got me picked by one I have
to mock and the tables thinking what the hell was this guy bluffing with nope
just getting cooler the second best hand now coming back to 75 150 it’s not a
sprint it’s a marathon the blinds had 100-200 we’re in middle
position with pocket sevens make it 525 cut-off calls
Dutch in the big blind calls the flop comes 5 4 3 rainbow pretty much the best
flop we can hope for so we put in a bet of 800 1/2 pot for valium obviously
probably just fold if someone raises their rep and sets two pairs straights
and shit both players call so we’re probably still good hopefully there’s a
safe card on the turn the turn brings an 8 which is kind of interesting
8 6 now beats us in 8 7 now beats us if they were floating with the overs and
gutshot drawers or 8 6 4 the open ended dr. Jackson the big blind action is to
us I don’t really want to just give a free card and check call the button if
he if he bets so I’m just gonna stay with relentless aggression and fold to
any resistance so we bet 1,800 in position folds Dutch goes deep into the
tank I’m praying for a crying call or just a hold and we can take it down he
eventually folds sevens are good and Ron break with 20,000 from our 26,000
starting stack owning raised in South Detroit he took
the midnight the blinds I 150-300
with a 25 ante under the gun plus one makes it 700 I’m under the gun plus
three with nine eight of clubs we’re now night handed for the rest of the
tournament I put it in the three back to two thousand because I’ve been pretty
tight action folds round to him and he says you’ve been pretty tight muffled
Bray’s pocket jacks – 800 button calls and the blinds fold the flop comes ace
queen five normally I just check fold here against this tight old guy what I
want to try something different and I bet 300 he folds hey that works I should
do that more often maybe I should shouldn’t have a checking range at all
maybe I should just bet different sizes depending on my hand strength and other
factors 22,000 on dinner break going to 250 500 trying to hop in a little pot
limit Omaha game same idea nope in 57 yes with blinds at 250 500 action folds 2
peter nath AKA number 1 pen in middle position is about 35,000 and he looks at
me and asked to see my stack in the big blind it’s usually a sign of weakness I
don’t know how well he balances this he’s asked me a few times but it’s
usually concerned to see if they’re gonna have to call my show because they
have a marginal hand she makes it 1,200 white European male from the Czech
Republic makes it 3,500 on the button off at 18k
stack I’m in the big blind with 20k and I looked down at pocket nines is this a
time to put in the cold for but sometimes in tournament poker you have
to be willing to die I show ball in Peter folds and Czech Republic holds for
take it down nice 5k pickup and then some we’re now on the last break of the
night 100 minutes remaining of play 35,000 all time high really on an
upswing feeling good let’s finish out strong monster dawn opens middle position to
1300 I’m in the small blind with king and queen of diamonds
three beds of 4580 folds the button opens the 1,300 of the small blind with
East nine of Spades I make it 4500 and he folds with blinds it’s 300 600 we
opened to 1,400 pocket nines off a 35,000 chip stack action folds to a 70
year old man on the button shoves all in yes 8600 small blind goes into the tank
and eventually falls pocket eights so he says after the hand and recall with
pocket nines old man shows ace Queen off suit flop comes ace Jack deuce turns to
Jack rivers and ace the table congratulate and he celebrates no love
for my good call all the love for the guy that just took 25% of metrics a very
weird table dynamic has developed over the last 10 hours of play same table
same people Asian to my left tank folds every single pot I enter only when I
enter pot 30 seconds look at me pull every time I don’t know why I don’t
break character I haven’t berated them I don’t get it
but I mean a three-bed or opened I don’t know 50 pots today every time and he
always folds he’s never played a hand against me
Iranian has a sizing tell closer two men raised his week closer to 3 X is strong
he opens for 1300 at 3 600 under the gun plus one I’m in middle position with the
deuce of clubs so I three bets 3800 Asian on my left you always tanks
whenever I act thinks about five seconds this time and makes it 15 thousand three
hundred very reliable tell everybody folds and I’m sure he had a monster the
very next hand after the Iranian opened a three bet in the Asian cold for bet
and I folded Iranian opens under the gun to 1600 this time so I’m guessing it’s a
slightly stronger hand I looked down in pocket queens 20,000 ships I three bets
a 5100 Asian tanks and folds back to the Iranian who asks how many chips I have he has 35,000 and he shoves all him to
be a cold day in hell before I fold Queens especially with this history we
have he mean mugs me and I call he shows pocket aces what are the odds of that
flop comes King Queen 10 to arts nobody has a heart the turn is a five and the
river is a three we get a double we now 41,000 chips what you think just because
I’m driving that I’m on the drive of shame I balance my hand history recall
range so never assume just because I’m walking away from the Rio I’m out quite
