Well Event 2 (I skipped event 1) did not go very well for me in the Harrah's Chester stop of the WSOPc lol. Pretty good structure and I was out after 3 hours! First big hand occurred at 100/200 (10K starting stacks). Loose, kind of aggro kid limps from HJ, SB calls, I check T6o. I've got about 10,500 to start the hand. Flop comes QT6cc. SB checks, I bet 500, HJ makes it 1500, SB folds, I make it 3500, HJ calls. My thoughts on the 3b was that his range is pretty wide. Pocket clubs, KJ, Qx make up a big part of it. QQ is never in there; he'd 3b AT earlier and was raising a lot of hands in general. TT and 66 are rarely it since he often raises those, and there are only 2 of each left in the deck. QT is possible but a very small part of his range, and Q6 is never in there. So I 3b for value, planning on jamming most turns. In retrospect I would have like to make it 4000; making it 3500 and getting a call puts the pot at 7200 and leaves me with 7000, while 4000 makes the pot 8200 and leaves me with 6500, a more comfortable turn shove, but a minor mistake. Anyway, bad turn cards are queens and clubs. I'm jamming everything else.

Turn is queen of clubs lol. I was pretty much planning on shutting down if a queen hit unless I got a good feel that he was on a club draw, but my hands are pretty much tied when the nut worst card hits the turn. I check planning to fold to a bet. He thinks, almost physically shrugs, and checks. The plan is still to shut down until the river 6x hits, completing the board of QxTc6cQc6x. And I have T6. Dafuq?! I check, probably folding to a jam still since I think he'll check back if he has a flush. He bets 2700. A call would leave me with 4300, enough room to fight back but being under half starting stack is never good. But it's 2700 to win 9900 and I only lose to a Q! But that's basically all of his range! I guess KJ is in there too. Such a sigh spot. I call and he shows QJ.

I grind the 4300 back to like 5600 and eventually pick up 88 UTG+1 at 100/200/25. UTG is an older guy who just got moved from another table and has raised like 3 of his first 8 hands. He makes it 600, I jam 5600, a kid two to my left asks for a count and flats (yuck he probably jams AK; feels like I'm always 20% to win here), folds around and he shows JJ. His are black and mine are red though! So as I'm doing my "I'm feeling lucky sorry in advance" spiel UTG says "I folded an 8 teehee" and I'm like cmon dude! Board bricks out and I go over to play cash, but Harrah's Chester was pissing me the fck off so I got outta there and went to Parx. Bought in $1000 at 2/5, grinded for 5 hours and profited 134 in the end. Had some fun hands. Young TAG kid raises to 20 from UTG, 2 flats, I make it 60 OTB with AdKd, he makes it 120, both flatters fold, I call, flop T42dd, he bets 150, I jam about 650 total (500 into 580 if you pull the 150s in so I really liked the sizing) and he folded in like 3 seconds. I think JJ-AA thinks for a little while there so he either 4b me light (I'd 3b a few times in this session already) or he had an AK kind of hand.

Later on an older guy who I was having fun conversations with seemed to need to play every pot I entered. It was fun though and we really went back and forth at each other. He was really aggro and not afraid to put chips in. After four hours I finally pick up a hand and make it 25 with KK. Two call, older guy makes it 110 from the SB. Back to me, I think a while then pick up 2 blacks, 3 greens, and a red for a 4b to 280. Fold fold, old guy thinks for a while and says something like "so you make it 25, I make it 110, and you make it 280. Doesn't seem like you want a call." Not sure how raising and 4 betting seems like I don't wanna call but that's fine with me if he thinks that lol. He finally folds and I muck. He later told me away from the table that he had AK, which was funny because a few minutes before I raised and he 3b squeezed vs me AGAIN and I folded AK and said it was time to go if I was just folding hands like that to him. Cashed out +134 and was about to leave until I saw my friend at 1/2. As I was talking to him a seat on his left opened up so I sat and long story short won 362 in 30 minutes lol. So managed to turn yesterday into a profitable day somehow. Mom's birthday today so no live poker for me!

Quick update because I have to leave for Rowan to watch the conference track championships where my bro is gonna be a big favorite to win the 10K...I am down $33 this past week. However that's not too bad given that includes 2 x $365 tourney losses and a full 2/5 buy in ($1000) down the drain. I'm up about $470 from 2/5 in the last week, including that -$1000 session. That session was tough, but what I was really happy about was that I wasn't upset in the slightest as I walked out of the casino. I just realized it was one of those days where nothing went right and sometimes you just have to deal with losing. $1000 is a lot of money but if you have the bankroll you can't really look at it as cash; just gotta look at it as a tool to make more money and sometimes it's gotta take a hit. My bankroll is at a certain number right now and if it drops below another number then I'm going away from 2/5; until then I wanna become as much of a 2/5 reg at Parx as possible since a lot of the same people play that game all the time. If I can get any concrete reads on any of them they will be so valuable since I'll get to use them often.

Anyway the 5 major hands from the -1000 session and then I'm leaving.

Hand #1: Folds to my button. I've been pretty tight, I open to 20 with Q8o. SB folds BB calls. (pot 42): flop QJ8r. BB checks, I bet 25, BB calls. (pot 92): turn Tx board QJ8Tr. BB checks, I think about firing then check behind. River 2x board QJ8T2. BB bets a medium stack of reds and I call before even getting a count. If he has me beat so be it, but it's really only a 9 I'm worried about and that's a small enough part of his range that I'm never folding. Raising also doesn't make sense so I know I'm calling and don't delay. Bet ends up being $55 and he has AK

Hand #2: EP makes it $20. 2 players flat and I flat AKo in the SB. This should almost always be a big 3b but based on the dynamics of the table I chose to flat. Looking back 3b was definitely better and I would have won the pot had I done it! lol results oriented, anyway, I believe 4 take a flop. (pot 80) flop A54r. I check, same kid from last hand bets 45, folds to me, I call. (pot 170) turn 8x. I'm not sure about the details of the rest of the hand but kid bets turn and river and shows me 76 for the straight.

Hand #3: Kid from last two hands makes it $20 from EP. I flat AQ from SB. This one is closer but than last hand but probably still a 3b. (pot 42) flop QJ2dd. I check kid bets $15 I make it $45 he calls. (pot 132) turn 10x board QJ2Tdd check check. Probably should bet here. River 9x board QJ2T9. I check he bets like $70. I tank and he shows KQ before I make a decision since he feels that bad for me lmao. I then make a very good fold

Hand #4: I'm down to about $280. EP makes it $20, I make it $70 with AK, button flats, EP calls. (pot 210) flop 233. EP checks, I jam 210, button tank folds EP folds. Button probably folded like 77.

Hand #5: I've got about $400 to start the hand. Aggro Asian guy makes it $30 from EP. I make it $85 from the button with QQ. Folds to EP, asks me how much I have behind, I tell him 300ish, he flats. (pot 177) flop 6JT. EP looks at my stack then checks. I bet 105, he says something about it being his last hand or my last hand, idk, throws 5 blacks out to put me in, I snap call. He says "You have ace(s?) right?" Couldn't tell if he asked if I had a big ace or 2 aces, but I tell him I have a pair and he says "well I have kings" and flips KK. I was pretty shocked to see that hand; figured I pay the man if he has JJ or TT but KQ is in there too, so is AJ, never put him on KK after the question and the flat pre. I really like his smooth call pre flop based on stack sizes; against my exact hand in question, it doesn't matter what he does, money's going in. But if I have AJ or 99 or something weird like that, it's more likely he'll get the money in post flop than pre flop. Just a total cooler for me to end it when I'm 80 BBs deep vs most aggressive guy at the table. What can you do!

Last 2/5 session I bought in for $1000 and was down to about $800 about 90 minutes in when this hand occurs:

Three players limp, I have AA in SB and make it $30. Folds to button who looks at me and says "just one caller." He has me covered but barely. He is a young Middle Eastern looking fellow and has been splashing around A LOT. Not extremely passive or extremely aggressive but in almost every hand. Sometimes he opens the pot sometimes he limps sometimes he flats a raise, but rarely does he fold. Flop comes K64r. I bet 45 he calls. Turn 6x. I bet 100 he calls. River Jx I bet 175 he announces all in for about 450 more. What would you do??? And do you play the hand differently up to this point?

I got a decent amount of discussion going with this hand on 2p2. Some seemed to think checking the turn works better. Some like betting more on each street so we can jam river, or bet more and commit ourselves completely on river. Some advocated c/c'ing river. Some said we have to fold river now because he almost never shows up with worse than aces up here.

In the end I call and he shows 76 and looks at a guy he'd been jawing with all day and says "I'M COMING FOR YOUR MONEY NEXT!" while I'm still sitting there having just been felted. I resisted the urge to punch him in the face, said nice hand, and walked out. I'm going back to 1/2; I still feel confident that I can beat 2/5 but my bankroll at this point in time will not allow me to comfortably play. $1000 means too much to me right now and I was very angry leaving the casino; I don't think I should ever be angry about poker. Frustrated is fine, but I was 'I want to punch something' angry about that session. My bankroll is still five figures but I think I need, at the minimum, $20,000 to want to play 2/5 day in and day out. For now I'll just occasionally shot take while mainly sticking to 1/2 to boost my roll.

And tournaments! Speaking of which, today started the Parx Big Stax II series! I did not get to play in Big Stax I but I have the time I need now for this set and I'm really excited about it! I had to work tonight so I didn't play day 1A but I'll be in day 1B tomorrow of the opening $300+$30 first event. They put a guarantee of $150K on it, but I really think they should have put $300K guarantee for better advertising. They had 1300 some runners last series in February for a $390K prize pool and I'd imagine they'll get more this time around, so the guarantee isn't an issue at all.

What I've noticed reading the blog for the current day 1A running right now is that I've come pretty far already as far as getting involved in the live poker world. When I read the blog months ago it would just be interesting to see all the people and characters and how some people are unknown outside of the poker world but big names within it. Reading the blog now, I know, either directly or indirectly, most of the names that pop up. Some are people I just know of and know they do very well live. Some are Parx regulars who I play with often. Some are people I ran into somewhere else and explained pleasantries with. It's pretty cool because while I do not yet have any stats to back any claim of being good (live at least), I feel like I am on the same level as most of these people I read about. I've had success in the little daily tourneys and it's time for me to show that I can play in these big tournaments as well that come with a little bit of prestige.

The structure of this tournament is unheard of for a $300 buy in. Matt Glantz has done an excellent job of putting the series together and formatting each tournament. Each player starts with 30,000 chips and blinds begin at 50/100. Each level last 45 minutes, and each day 1 plays 16 levels and then breaks for day 2. Day 1A plays today (Wednesday) and will finish up within the hour, day 1B begins tomorrow (Thursday), and day 1C plays out on Friday. The survivors from each day return to day 2 on Saturday, where levels are 90 minutes (!!) long. Day 2 concludes after level 24 finishes or the final table is set, whichever comes first. Sunday is an off day for Mothers' Day, and Monday brings the conclusion of the tournament. Re-entry is open throughout every single day 1. I could theoretically drive to Parx right now at 1AM and enter with 30K at 2500/5000/500. There is also an option to bag after day 1 and come back for another day 1. If you bag in multiple days only your biggest chip stack can come back for day 2. It's a nice option if you finish day 1A with, say, 50K and know you'd be back to 3K/6K with a very short stack; you can go try again and if you bust you'll still have a shot on day 2, and if you run up a nice stack you can go on as normal.

At any rate I really want to make day 2. I have yet to make any sort of run in any tournament that is part of a series; I think the longest I've lasted has been 5 hours and it always seems to end on a flip or suck out. I was 0-4 in flips in the 3 tourneys I played in the Borgata Poker Open, at Chester I lost 88<JJ in a cooler and KK<AK, both hands occurring only about 3 hours into the respective tournaments. I went 99<AK/AQ at opening event in WPT at Parx, TT<JJ in another series tourney at Borgata. I just never get the ball rolling and the most chips I can remember having in any of these tourneys was like 45K. It's time to get outta that funk!

I plan on playing 2 bullets tomorrow, obviously hoping the first one goes well so I don't have to fire another. If I lose two I'm probably done but depending on circumstances I might fire a 3rd, but definitely no more than 3. If I bust before day 2 then I just get to play the $500+$50 on Saturday, same structure as this one except 40,000 starting chips. Hopefully we run good!

The first bullet went well!

I got to Parx at noon and blinds were 75/150 with 30,000 starting stack. I had some very weird things happen at my table, mostly coming from one person. Guy on my left starts complaining it's too cold, vent is right on us. He was right, it was very cold where we were, but I didn't think it was something to get super agitated over. He goes on a rant at the floor person who he claims to know and she tries to get table moved but guy on phone won't let her. Eventually it folds to guy's SB and he sits there. And sits. I look at BB and he looks back at me like huh? He asks guy "you know it's on you right?" "Yep." And sits. We all figure what's going on and finally BB looks at dealer and shrugs and says "clock?" Floor walks over, counts down the minute to 5 seconds, guy calls. BB checks. Flop comes. SB sits there. "Clock." "Sir you have one minute." I get up and walk away and somewhat loudly start telling anyone who will listen what's going on because it's one of the weirdest things I've ever seen. As I'm walking around I see same floor person on the phone and hear her say "how many times does a person intentionally stalling have to have clock called on him before I can assess a penalty?"

Eventually he starts playing again and eventually our table gets moved so we're not under the vent. This causes us to look like some weird featured table since we move from table 73 to 83 and 82-74 get broken up before we do, leaving us on an island. This same guy also waited for dealer to prompt him to ante every freaking hand. It was so strange.

Anyway my table was very tough most of the day. I didn't get moved until about 9:00 after starting at noon. In fact, of the 8 people at my table at that point, 4 of us finished at a different table together at 1:30. 33 people finished the day overall, so for four of our original eight to be at the same table is really ridiculous.

Anyway, I had 19,000 after dinner break from my original 30,000. Blinds were 600/1200/200 coming back around 7:30 PM. Second hand back I jam KQ UTG get a call from UTG+2 and win a flip vs 77. I was very quiet at the table until it broke. I 3b jammed twice at the new table and, after AK JJ and TT being my top 3 hands the first 9 hours, picked up KK and QQ in the first orbit of the new table. I chipped up to about 60,000 then got in my first big important pot in the last hand before the break at 1500/3000/400. EP raises to 7000 and I jam 58K with AJ. EP snaps with KK and board runs A high. Very lucky and bumps me to 120K. First hand back from break, blinds at 2000/4000/500, I open to 9000 with QQ from UTG. UTG+1, who had been playing very strange and loose and said he wanted to get to 200K by the end of the day, makes it 25,000. UTG+2 jams 60K. It folds back to me. I take my time then announce all in. UTG+1 snaps and flips JJ. I flip my QQ and UTG+2 shows AK. I believe my stack would have remained around 120K had I beat the JJ and not the AK, but an 8 high board brought my stack up to 300K. So 60K to 300K in 2 hands, with a break in between the two.

Matt Glantz was at my table for about 3 hours and was playing somewhat aggressively, picking his spots against the right opponents. He built his stack to around 170K when we got into a massive pot together. Matt makes it 11,000 at 2500/5000/500 from EP, I 3b to 26,000 from MP with AA. It folds back to Matt and he makes the call. Flop comes 7h4s3s and Matt checks. I bet 32,000 and Matt thinks for a little while then puts out a 2 handed raise to 86,500. I think for a while, look at his stack and ask for him to move his hand. I'm used to most people being all Hollywoody and barely moving it so I can barely figure out what they play behind, but Glantz just tells me on the spot about 60K and moves his entire arm so I can see. Always nice playing with good players. I announce all in and he snaps with KsQs. Turn and river brick out and my stack goes to 490K.

A short stack jams (claims to have done it blind) 20K at 2500/5000 from CO I iso on button with AK he ends up with TT and wins flip, I finish day at 478K. 252 entered day 1B, 33 bagged for day 2, I had 3rd biggest stack of those. Two from day 1A had me beat so I'm 6th of those 76 (43 from 1a). Day 1C just concluded so I'll get to see what my final position is along with table draw. Day 2 starts tomorrow at noon...I'd be asleep already but I told my friend if he survived day 1C he could stay at my house. He just bagged 228K lolol so I gotta wait for him to get here. Let's run good tomorrow!

So 139 started back up today, I was 10th to start. Gordon Eng, a relatively big name pro, was 7th and directly on my left. Good table draw. 90 players cashed and when we hit about 81 left my friend I mentioned in the last post moves into seat 1 at my table. I had chipped up to about 700K he had about 850K after a crazy heater in the first level and the average was like 400K.

And then one old guy ruined my day! First, blinds are 5000/10000/1000 and old guy UTG makes it 23000. I make it 61000 from my SB, and he calmly announced "120 on top" to make it 181000. The sizing, his body language, the fact he only left 220000 behind, it all added up to AA. And I jammed anyway. He snapped, and I was knocked down to 350K. I grinded pretty hard from there, making sure not to make mistakes but not be too passive either. Eventually, a little bit after the dinner break, a decent player shoves all in for about 150000 at 8000/16000/2000 from the CO. I find 77 on the button and jam 320000. It folds to old guy in BB. He looks at his cards, looks at CO, looks at me, and in a weird joking kind of way says "I call!" We're like what wait that's binding oh shit and he flips AA. Seriouslyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. CO has AJ, board runs T958T and I bust in 41st for $1342.

Here's the hand as described by the casino blog: xhttp://parxbigstax.blogspot.com/2013/05/big-stax-300-day-2-waking-up-to-aces.html

Oh and my friend from last post? He has like 2.4M right now with about 20 left. First place is $63K. One time!!!

Edit: Also if you see this venice, the Ad doesn't work for some reason. I checked the smileys and next to the " : Ad : " there is no picture. No problem for me but figured you'd wanna know.

Figured I'd bump this after two years. I met 1mtm91 and mentality185 over in England last month, that was cool. I've decided to play professionally and am making my living playing primarily on the New Jersey sites. My mindset is miles better than how it was even just a few months ago, let alone how it was on here. When I reread some of my old posts I start to cringe and feel embarrassed but I guess I'll chalk it up to being young. I'm 24 now and have been trying to put some volume into live MTTs now that I have a bankroll, which I grinded up almost exclusively playing online in New Jersey. I'm still anti being backed so everything has been on my own dime and my BRM is probably stronger than it ever has been before.

I just bagged a disappointing 36,600 from a 30K starting stack in a $400 100K guarantee at Borgata in Atlantic City, coming back to 1K/2K and 1 hour levels tomorrow. I had it to 100K+ and Dave "Coldstone" Inselberg opens UTG to 5000 at 800/1600. I 3b UTG1 to 12.5K with KK. We've been the 2 tightest players at the table so I'm sure my 3b here looks like what it is but people just simply do not seem to care at Borgata; if you make a hand you're almost always going to get paid. Earlier I bet 3 streets with QQ on QJ8Q7 and the guy almost beat me into the pot each street. Coldstone flats and flop comes 2T2; he checks I bet 11.5K he flats turn 8. He checks I check back for pot control and since I don't think I'm going to get 3 streets of value vs this specific villain. The structure of this tournament is also amazing so if I'm getting coolered by TT or 88 here I don't want to go broke. River is a Q and he bets 20K. I wonder if I can fold since I think his range is really weighted in the 88-QQ range (and I think AA is even possible) but I decide to call since that was the plan after checking turn. I say "if you have QQ that's pretty sick" as I throw the call in and he says "this might be sicker" and turns over A2hh! Wtf he was folding every hand for 2 hours! lol live poker is so silly but is most likely EXTREMELY profitable; you just have to put the volume in and the variance can take a very long time to work itself out.

Anyway 18BBs in the morning with 1 hour levels so anything can happen. 272 total entries and 76 return (107K average), 27 pay, $27,202 up top. Let's go! Hope all you Surfers are doing well.

So from that 36K I ran it up to 600K before going on a pretty bad stretch to end day 2 with 197K and 10 players left. I was 10/10 coming back to 20 minutes left of 8K/16K, followed by hour levels throughout after that. I got two 3 bet jams through and then stole the blinds to chip up to about 300K. I then opened AA at 10K/20K to 45K, got a flat from CO and a 3b to 125K from button, I jam, he calls with KK, and the 754K8 runout ends my run in 9th. Was a lot of fun and a good experience; disappointing of course but just a stepping stone as I continue trying to play poker professionally.

It seems like anytime I log onto Surfers I'm the only one logged on so I might be writing to myself but oh well it's therapeutic
