London Calling, me with my brother fredrik
Day 1, Main Event
Started out by winning some of the first pots of the day which felt good.
Later I lost 2 important pots against short stacks in a row, K-Q vs 7h-5h hand K-Q vs A-J . I was suddenly down to 9,5K (23bb) and didn’t pick up any hands for a long time. I really struggled but survived with some 3-bets like a 8s-9s shove in lp with 15bb stack when a guy with high VPP raised.
I stayed patient and finally got Q-Q on bb, which held and I doubled up against A-K !
Then with blinds 50/400/800 I got Q-Q on sb. Utg raised 2k and got two callers. I went all in with 20 bb’s, one guy called me with Kd-6d … LOL sweet…. No king and I was up to 38K.
I kept my eyes on this goldmine…. and a few hands later he raised all in utg with 20K.
I isolated A-Q all in preflop in mp and he turned over 6-4 ……/no kidding. He got the miracle flop 465 …… but I rivered a flush /dance. The rail cheered and I was up to 60K!
With blinds 75/600/1200 ep limp, mp limp, old lady on sb raised to 6K, I 3-bet to 16K with A-Q on bb and suddenly ep went over the top to 29bb. I felt I was crushed and folded. He showed Kings..
I have a 40K stack which is a little bit short (avg is 78K) when we start to play day 2 but I still have a good chance with some early moves and a little luck.
JJ, Wonga, Rhyme and Muzone are also still in so let’s go for a PKR final table!
My brother Fredrik is playing the £200+£15 side event today – GL to him – but hopefully I will miss this myself by instead playing deep in Main!!
Time to prepare with lunch and go down to Fox Poker Club.
