I started off recording the main hands I played in this tournament but I've ended up recording pretty
Much every hand I've played ala Gus Hansen.
Everything has been recorded on my phone so it might not look tidy when I upload this post.
If so, I apologise in advance and I will tidy it up tomorrow,
For now, enjoy it, if you like this sort of thing, if not, skip through!
Level 2 50/100 with 7500 starting chips. It's folded to my button and I raise to 300 with 88.
The flop is Js 7d2d and after 2 checks I bet 600 into 900 and get reraised to 1700 by the bb so I fold.
I might have been ahead, but I can't call!
Level 3 75/150
Checked kj in the bb, flop k high with 2 diamonds and I check called the button's 350 steal and checked the turn rag
River came a third diamond so I just had to check the river with the intention of calling a medium sized bet on the river
Which didn't come and I won the pot to get back to 7500 chips.
Level 4 100 200 25 ante after a limp I raise KQ and got reraised to 2200 all in by AJ and I had to call the 1700 and a king on the turn meant I had 9900.
I then got moved to a new table between jimmy morgan and steve holden.
One of the first hands and there are 3 limpers and a go to call the 200 with T7 but throw a 1000 and 100 chip in by mistake. With
One caller I have to continue bet on the AK 3 flop which is called. I check behind on the T turn and fold to the pot bet on the riverm Down to 5800.
Next there is a raise to 650 by jimmy so I call with 77 and there is a squeeze to 2200
. Jimmy then did his usual hollywood think before reraising and saying "go on I can't pass with
his KK and I folded leaving me with 5025 chips.
After a button raise to 800 I went all in with JJ and he folded AT, up to 5675.
Moved tables which is a shame because when the blinds go up the limpers on he old table would have been profitable for a short stack.
Raise from buddy to 1500 who folded his KJ to my shove with AA, 7125 chips but would have been better because ash told me he would have set me in in the sb with K9!
Next level 200/400 50 ante.
Down to 4750
Not played a hand that level with junk hands and. Saw 2 flops in the blinds.
Didn't even have any spots to steal.
Second hand in it's folded to me, all in 23o, I pick up the blinds.
Next hand and there's a raise to 1500, I'm all in again with KK. He says he raised blind and. Calls 24hh flop
comes K99 2 hearts but I survive and up to 13000
300/600 50 next, all in or fold.
Raised late pos to 1700 KJ and bb called and check folded in disgust on an ace high flop.
Next hand raised 1600 AT all folded, up to 15500 with the average 19200 and 34 left.
After a raise utg and 2 calls I called 1600 more with 34 and missed.
Folded to me on the button I pushed TJ and won the blinds, 12300, blinds now 500/1000 100.
Raised 88, all folded.
Tight cutoff Raised to 3000 on my big blind when I had Ac 9c, I folded with 12300 behind.
Folded K4hh on button, blinds had nothing but don't want to shove every time.
Next hand Jd7d the same, bb raised the sb limp.
Blinds up in 8 mins I'm going to have to raise next button if folded to me.
Blinds 600 1200 100
A9 on button, all fold, stack is 8300. All in again soon.
Nice time to find AA all fold 11600.
After a limp, I called in the small blind with KJ, it was checked around on the 732 flop,
I bet 2200 on the 9 turn and took the chips, 13100, 18 left.
99 in the bb but a raise and reraise meant I folded, 11500.
4 hands left for the night, blinds are 800/1600 200 tomorrow.
Last hand, after a limp from a guy who just raised 3 hands in a row,
all in 10500 with 6h7h. All fold, including a good player called Raf who folded TT which is a bit tight
Given my stack size but I was raising an early position limp on the blind of
Howard plant and he still had a few to get past, facing at least overcards normally, I would suppose.
Anyway, I'm back tomorrow for day 2 with 18 left, including Andy Booth and Jimmy Morgan out of the Liverpool lads who were on the cruise with us in 2008.
£17,400 in the pot, 10 get paid with the winner picking up about £5000.
Let's hope one of us wins.
Good luck also to terry owens, another Liverpool player who is on the final table of the £50,000 1st prize main event.
