Re: PL Internet Poker Bragging Thread Not as good as everyone else on the bragging thread, but just finished 6th in a $1600 guaranteed six seater MTT on Ultimate Poker for $20 buy in. Only 87 entries but got to the final table with only 6 getting paid. Went out on the following, see what you think if I played it right. I'm in the big blind with the smallest stack, everyone folds to the small blind who raises the minimum (blinds are 400 -800 respectively with 50 or 100 antes). I only have about 4000 left and am holding Q3 off suit. I think he's stealing so call. Flop comes 3s 9h Qc, I've flopped two pair and go all in without hesitation - no flush and only potential straight draw. He calls and turns over two 9's giving him trips. Unfortunately the turn and river don't help and I'm out in 6th winning $96 - not a great amount but a MTT final table non the less. Quite happy with how I played and think it was the right move at the time but I'll let you guys debate that. I tried to copy the final results like everyone else but unfortunately I've failed. :(

Re: PL Internet Poker Bragging Thread Hey congrats with your winnings.... It can always be discussed if you should: A: FOLD Q3o B: ALL IN Q3o I think if i was SB, i would NOT go for a standard raise with 99... As so many overcards could hurt you on the flop.. So would problably have raised 4-5X BB.. So its hard for you to see he had 1 of 4 hands that could beat you.. QQ, 99, 33 or Q9. Since you had Q3, not so many chances for him to have QQ or 33, couse that would be the last 2 in the deck.. So you put your money in, when you was sure you was leading with 2 pair... I think that was the right move.. Nothing here could have saved your ass this time. But better luck next time.. But still okay result if you ask me.. :ok / cains

Re: PL Internet Poker Bragging Thread Well done Legend clap.gifclap.gifclap.gif It's a good night tonight bigokay.gif I've been getting closer to winning a MTT recently, but never got quite got the breaks ........................... Tonight I did.happy.gif I didn't think that tonight would be the night though. With about 35 people left (30 paid places) I had 2600 chips and the blinds were 1000/500.eek2.gif It just goes to show that you are never out of it happy.gif

Re: PL Internet Poker Bragging Thread My claim to fame probably doesn`t strictly conform to the topic of the thread as it`s "internet poker", but I`m dropping it in here nevertheless :tongue2 Last night, after a great afternoon at Worcester races we went back to Dudley Casino and 11 of us played in a £10 buy in tourney. The players were Staffy, Heniek, Jeffers, Paul Ross, Matt, Osesame, Danny (Betfred chap), Herp, Osesame, Appy Ammer and myself. It`s my first ever live game/tourney and I only went and won the fooker :loon I collected £50, winning it was a great feeling but the cash reward came 2nd to actually winning it. Such a great feeling. It`s probably the last time you`ll see me in here btw actually bragging about what i`ve done :lol

Re: PL Internet Poker Bragging Thread you can never have enough dancing cows :cow I was incredibly short stacked too in my game. On the final table I was down to 3k in chips with the blinds at 6k/3k. Kept getting trash hands until auto all in on the bb, when I quadded through, then immediately doubled through and the rest, as they say, is history. :loon

Re: PL Internet Poker Bragging Thread Nice one Laidbackbloke :clap . I'm KazH who came 3rd in the same tourney! I thought your name was familiar :D. I'm a bit annoyed I didn't come higher as when it went down to 4 players it was all pretty even, and then my software / computer crashed, and by the time I got back I was down to less than 15k chips and you and the other guy were both on over 100k. I guess I would have taken 3rd at the start of the tourney though. I've had a pretty good week really - came 12th out of 350 in the SportingOdds $1000 freeroll at the same time today, a few nights ago I came 3rd in a Canbet $1000 freeroll and won $120,and not long before that I got to the final table on a betfair £2 MTT as well :cow :cheers

Re: PL Internet Poker Bragging Thread Well doneclap.gifclap.gifclap.gif Looks like you have had a good week bigokay.gif I thought you must have been disconnected for a while (though I didn't know it was youlaugh4.gif ) Basically the other player took out the 4th place guy and then used his chip lead aggressively. It meant a lot of hands got played quickly so your chips would have dissappeared quickly ................... I caught him bluffing by putting in a big re-raise a couple of times and made up some chips. I think he knocked you out, but I can't remember for sure laugh4.gif The heads up went on for ages with it going back and forth. I built up a good chip lead twice and then lost an all-in both times (once favourite, once slight underdog) and I eventually won it after building up the lead for the third time when my A4s beat his KJobanana.gifDancingCow.gifbanana.gifDancingCow.gifbanana.gifDancingCow.gif Although the money is nice, I play poker because I love the competition, so I've had a big smile on my face all day today after finally winning my first MTThappy.gif

I meant to reply to this earlier Doddsy............................ sorry got a bit distractedembarassed.gif Cains covered it well anyway bigokay.gif . Basically you were cold decked. Given the stage of the tournament you were at, being the shortest stack,and being first to act ....................... I don't see how you could avoid getting knocked out .............other than if you had folded pre-flop. But his minimum raise could have been made with any cards in an effort to steal the blinds so I quite understand you calling. 99 certainly doesn't spring to mind. Once the flop came the action was on you. If you had checked, it would be because you were wanting some action ...................... so you would almost certainly have ended up all-in anyway. If you had put in a smaller raise, you would be committed to the pot so you'd have ended up all-in anyway. If you had a bigger stack maybe you could have escaped. But IMO, in your position, you were pretty much screwed as soon as the flop camefrown2.gif
