not even my daughter waking me up screaming at 6am and getting a bollocking from the mrs for sleeping through my turn for the night feed can put a dampener on my mood!!
last night i was happy to just session footie manager and poker was not even an option, in fact i was still banned on Full Tilt until today!!
however come 7:30 my dad phoned me with a problem, he was chip leader in the $4k guaranteed on ipoker but couldnt play on as my mum was on the way home and wanted to eat with him, he wanted me to play on for him.
so i log on and decide to sit tight for about 30 minutes and see what the table is like, the answer is everyone is super tight except some idiot who is playing 95/45 and is limping or min raising every pot!! i decide to multi table and stick with footie manager and wait for a good spot
eventually i get into a spot with said donk i 3bet his min raise and a flat call to steal the blinds and he min raises me again! not sure whether this is +ev mathematically but i know that if i spike a 3 im doubling up
this hand got me to the final table easily and the hard part was to finish in the top 5 for a cash.... footie manager then went off and i did a $5 50 man tourney to keep the boredom at bay, eventually i finished 2/50 in it for $50 losing with AJ to A6 all in pre flop...
anyways of course that tourney was not important in the scheme of things and eventually we get down to 6 players and the bubble, at this point one player sits out and we get 30 minutes before the short stack gets bounced.... now the strange part the player sitting out comes back and starts open shoving every hand!! no idea why he sat out and he had halved his stack but it looked like he would be eliminated soon and of course i get into a spot with him.
im still undecided on my play here, i knew he would shove any two cards and figured my ace was ahead but maybe ace 3 is not strong enough for this?
anyways it wasnt to matter much as he was out soon and i eventually finish 3rd for $640
to finish off the night i head back to the Omaha tables and win about $300 mainly due to this hand
the icing on the cake!
now to figure out how i split the cash, think 50/50 is too much for my dad as i was playing for 5 hours - what do you think?
