Poker and Birthday in Nova Gorica, day 2
Went into day 2 with 32bb’s, a bit short but still with a chance. To my left at my starting table was Dario Minieri. He raised a lot just as predicted. Once when he reraised my button raise I was planning to 4bet light just to show him but fortunately I didn’t that time. He showed AK…
During the first level of the day I didn’t see any hands better than A with low kicker and just kept my stack stealing in late position.
The next level the blinds increased to 100/600/1200 and I had 24K. I kept playing without cards and my stack was going up and down around 15-20 blinds for 1h. With a tight image and respect at the table I made some three bets all in preflop a couple of times with marginal hands and kept my stack uncontested.
In the end of this level a player raised in early position and another guy flat called. I didn’t love my cards but with 16bb’s I had to take a stand and decided to go all in with my KQ on sb. I ran into AK, was dominated and…out in 91st place – shit…!
No final table for birthday this year! Instead I will spend a couple of nice days here in Slovenia. I have already checked in the SPA here at the Hotel Perla and will celebrate my birthday out tonight with a big dinner and
drinks with my boyfriend Luca. He also busted from this tournament so we will have some extra time together.
Then back to Sweden and online grinding again until it’s time for the next live tournament. I already look forward to Irish Open 2012!
