Ace King Can Lick My Balls

Man has this hand completely fucked me over in the last three events. Last hand of CHIMPS was AK less than QQ. Blogger Skills was AK less than KK (fuck you wvapoker :)). The Mookie was AK less than AA. When you have a stack of 10 BB's you pretty much have to shove with it. I don't think flat calling a 3x or 3.5x bet pre-flop is a viable option.

Monday night was the MATH and it did not go well for me. I am just not a good 6-max player. In this tourney you see a ton of 3-bets. I lost almost 1/2 of my chips in the 1st level when I raised to 90 with 55 and was called by the button. I lead for 150 on the flop and was raised to 450. It looked like a standard raise in this spot so I 3-bet it to 1000. He 4-bet shoved and I had to lay it down. I was out 1/2 hour in when I shoved with AQ and I ran into AK.

Tuesday night was Event #3 of CHIMPS. It was a $1 rebuy and I managed to get through the rebuy period for about 6 rebuys and the add-on. After the add-on I had 5200 in chips. A decent stack to play with good for 2nd/7 at the table. Until my bustout hand I did not play a hand where i had over 1k in chips in the pot (more like 600). With the blinds at 120/240 I decided to shove from late position with AK and ran into QQ. I did not improve and was shown the door in 11th good for zero points.

The Blogger Skill Series on Tuesday night was PLHE. I had a much better run in this one but still wound up with nothing to show for it. I busted in 21st place two short of the points (like that really matters now). 10 minutes in I raised with 98dd and got 2 callers. Flop comes 7,4,2dd and I call a pot sized bet from the BB and so does the other player. The turn is the 6s so now I have the open ender to go with the flush draw. Its checked to the last player who fired out 480 and I'm the only caller. I hit the flush on the end and lead for 1100 and am called by a flopped set.

The rest of the first hour was fairly uneventful except for the last 10 minutes. I managed to flop quads twice, getting paid off on one of them. Going to the break I had 7500 in chips. Nothing too interesting happens in the 2nd hour which I ended at 6k in chips. My bustout hand was courtesy of guest blogger wvapoker. I thought I had AK but I see that I had the Jackace. Who loses with that? Well, me.

Last night was the Mookie. Like usual lately I managed to get a top 5 stack in the first hour until I called a 3500 3-bet shove with the lovely fuckin AK again after I 2 bet to get knocked down to 4k in chips. In the second hour this interesting hand came up. I posted it over on CCN to see what people thought.

Your move???

About 20 minutes into the 3rd hour after maintaining my stack I got it in with AK (yes, again) and ran into AA. Fuck this!!!

Riverchasers is tonight and I will play that one. I'm leaning against playing the big game on Sunday. We shall see how the token chasing goes. So far not so good.

  1. My move? Don't limp Queens.

    Bad limp, bad preflop call.

    But you did... so decision time. I re-popping there I think. High probability of AQ or AK.
