Busy Week

Hey Guys!

Starting it off with My Bankroll…..

 

its at $2129.79

 

Obviously not a big improvement like previous weeks, in fact I think Its around $90 profit for the week. Theres a lot of factors as to why its where it is.

Ill list them in Order of Importance

1)I had a killer first 3 days of the week, I jumped up $390 profit and was looking to have the best week on this blog yet. But then I started playing a Reg, which led to Heads Up Warfare, He was playing well and running well, and one thing led to another, and all my profit slid away. I decided in future matches, Ill just play him 2 out of 3, and if he wins Ill do my best to find a different opponent.

2) I decided that even though I’m sick, I couldn’t turn work down anymore and had to put in about 60+hrs of film making work this week. I got lucky, I got handed some really fun projects.

3) When I get home from said jobs, its roughly 8-10pm and all the fish have gone to bed. So I’m stuck playing regs. Although I do enjoy playing Regs, I enjoy playing New people a whole lot more. I don’t wanna sound like a broken record about mentioning the regs so ill stop.

Im only working 4 days this week though, So Im gonna try to do a video or 2 of me playing the $24 and $36 stake level. I know Im super overdue on that. Thanks for stopping by!

Ojo De La Tigre

Hey Kids!

Alright Starting things off with….

My Current Bankroll is $2038.57

And we Aint stopping. This Car came with a full gas tank and no brakes.

 

Had a Mediocre week at the tables. Just played $24 HUSNGs I played a couple $60 cuz I saw it was this reg that was dodging me and I wanted to send him a message, but the rest of the week I stuck to the $24’s.Capture

I started the week off really well. But then I started getting Bum Hunted by a new reg. Ive played him before but I decided that the best course of action was to play him til he quit me, he started off strong, won around 5 buy ins in some cooler situations mixed with bad calls on my end. So my duel started off 6-2 , but I stuck with him, and later we pushed it to 14-9, still convinced that variance was helping him as well as tightening up some of my looser calls that may have had poor judgement. I stuck with him and turned things around, I started crushing him, and tied it up 17-17, in fact the last 5 of those games I played so aggressive that when I finally tied him at 17-17 he snap quit me. I don’t think he’ll be sitting me for a couple weeks at least, and if he does, I have pages of notes now against him.

I wanted to show you some fun calls I did without a hand. I think In both of these I made the call solely on the fact my opponents weren’t thinking of the range their representing.

WPN, $24 Buy-in (10/20 blinds) No Limit Hold’em Tournament, 2 Players
Poker Tools by CardRunners – http://www.cardrunners.com/

Hero (SB): 500 (25 bb)
BB: 500 (25 bb)

Preflop: Hero is SB with Kd Qd
Hero raises to 40, BB calls 20

Flop: (80) Ac 8d 6s (2 players)
BB checks, Hero bets 35, BB raises to 80, Hero calls 45

Turn: (240) Jc (2 players)
BB bets 120, Hero calls 120

River: (480) 8c (2 players)
BB bets 260 and is all-in, Hero calls 260 and is all-in

Results: 1,000 pot
Final Board: Ac 8d 6s Jc 8c
Hero showed Kd Qd and won 1,000 (500 net)
BB showed 7h 5s and lost (-500 net)

 

This ones fun cuz on the turn I was kinda torn between a call or a fold, but when the 8 rolled off on the river, I snap called.  I actually dislike his play, I understand what hes thinking on the turn, but If I call that turn, Im NEVER folding the river, At that point I have just as many club draws as he does in my range, Actually I have more since I still have the Ace of clubs in my range, and he NEVER did. I think hes literally just setting money on fire in that spot with a bluff after the turn play.

 

Second Hand

WPN, $24 Buy-in (10/20 blinds) No Limit Hold’em Tournament, 2 Players
Poker Tools by CardRunners – http://www.cardrunners.com/

SB: 535 (26.8 bb)
Hero (BB): 465 (23.3 bb)

Preflop: Hero is BB with Kh 7h
SB completes, Hero raises to 60, SB calls 40

Flop: (120) Jd 7c 3s (2 players)
Hero bets 45, SB calls 45

Turn: (210) Qd (2 players)
Hero checks, SB bets 120, Hero calls 120

River: (450) Ah (2 players)
Hero checks, SB bets 310 and is all-in, Hero calls 240 and is all-in

Results: 930 pot
Final Board: Jd 7c 3s Qd Ah
SB showed 9d 8h and lost (-465 net)
Hero showed Kh 7h and won 930 (465 net)

this ones a bit different.

When he check/calls the flop his range is something like

Flop

and In all Honesty this is me being Generous, I feel when I raise PF this guy would probably give me a cute re-raise on the flop something really small with AA or KK, people get greedy like that.  Also I Included QTs to his flop calling range cuz I do think he’d call a small flop bet with something along those lines. I feel like ALL of his weak Jacks except J7 would Re-raise me on the flop  for fear of protection. as well as most of the 7’s in his range would also Re-raise the flop. so as you can see by the photo most of his calling range is Air, with QJ being the only real threat.

so the Qd comes on the turn.

He bets 120……

I tank and rule out all the Jacks in his range, I still beat most of the 7’s that he failed to Re-raise the flop with. so that leaves mostly bluffs that are betting big to scare me off and maybe some hidden monster like AA or KK but Im in the air on if he even plays those premiums that way.  I call and decide if the River is a blank card Im calling him down.

River is the Ace of Hearts.

Now he gives his hand away

He has No Aces in his range except for AA, and there’s even less combos of that when that River ace comes. That Ace is the WORST card for him, and he shoves? any weak 1 pair hands would most likely check or bet small. especially after I call that heavy turn bet. Honestly with His hand after that turn, when the Ace comes he needs to shut down, He cant rep anything and I didn’t believe him on the turn so he really cant force too much of a fold on the river.  his river range looks like River

 

You see how the bottom of that Picture it says 79 combos? well 66 of those combos I beat.  Thankfully It worked out and Im able to blog to you today about the call. History is only written by the winners right? 🙂

Anywho I’m withing $100 of jumping up stakes this week to the $36 HUSNGs. I look forward to grinding those for a little while. Hopefully they work out.  Thanks for stopping by, and Feel free to throw out a comment,
