:ok No worries Brian, meant to say earlier, thanks for the notes ;) Although it's my game of choice and so rarely seen I'm glad I missed the 6-card game in a way, wouldn't have been able to resist the temptation to sit with the prize money.

Brian, Your sense of humour only gets you so far mate. You stepped over the line with that post and you know it. Anyway, let's not spoil the thread with any more silly stuff. ;)

Re: APAT Team Event, G Casino Manchester Jan 23rd/24th - BillyThePunter Wins!!!! Nah mate, there's gotta be some luck to win any poker game but you were well in control of the tables a lot of the time - a great performance by a top bloke :clap - but how did you get that guy to fold JJ face up near the end of day 1? :eek :lol (according to gaz it was a standard lay down - still haven't been told why ;))

Nah mate' date=' there's gotta be some luck to win any poker game but you were well in control of the tables a lot of the time - a great performance by a top bloke :clap - but how did you get that guy to fold JJ face up near the end of day 1? :eek :lol (according to gaz it was a standard lay down - still haven't been told why ;))[/quote'] Cheers Tom, looking back my shove vs the JJ was a pivotal moment. :D It was on the Hendon Mob but it turns out the guys remembered a few hands slightly differently, so all good. The Jack river I hit was a 49/51 when the money went in, plus I only had 37,000, it resulted in a 80k pot - I still had plenty of work to do. ;) I suppose I ran well at the correct times. I did win a couple of big races on the FT, but they were all flips or 45/55's (QJ v 77 - KQs v A8o) so real suckouts - plus I lost the big 800k (approx) race vs yourself. The structure forced us to race plenty didn't it? I think it's important to "play" yourself into a decent enough position to be able to afford to lose a big race and still be in contention. Of course that isn't always possible. :ok

Re: APAT Team Event, G Casino Manchester Jan 23rd/24th - BillyThePunter Wins!!!!

Many thanks to everyone for the comments and support - much appreciated. :ok Great to meet up with Al again and to meet Fonzie, Morls, Gaz, Tom, Brian and Hen for the first time - a cracking bunch. Thanks for all the support over the two days guys, it really was helpful and appreciated. Nice to meet Mike and Lou Saban also. Was fairly steady early doors but was up to about 14k at the first break. There were no big pots on my table thankfully and I managed win around eight of the ten pots I played. Table broke and I found myself to the right of two loose aggressive players who didn't seem to want to play flops. Shove-piggy-shove when less than half way through the first day, far from ideal. Was re-popped by the aforementioned players when stealing three times and had to pass (was holding filth). I won small chips off baby stacks when calling their all-ins with KK and JJ but I was losing ground and was worried for the first time. Had to change tactics quickly so limp-called (raises) a couple of times from the guy to my left and won it post-flop each time, up to nearly 30k at the next break, panic over. The table never broke but got a bit of luck when I was moved to another table soon after. It was around midnight and we were approaching the point-bubble. As Gaz says above I felt I could use it to my advtange if I could differentiate those who were playing for themselves and those playing primarily for their team. After working that out as well as I could, as Nade says, I was lucky enough to run over the table, doubled up to around 60k without seeing a flop - raising/re-raising etc. Then came a pivotal hand, around 35 left. Blinds 1500/3000 or 2000/4000 Folded around to the SB who standard-raised. I was in the BB with KdQd, I shove (65k) and he snap-calls with jacks. Low flop but I hit the turn and sit back down. Up to 120k and chip leader when the play stopped a round or so later, although starting day two with less than 30BB's it was impossible to be too confident. Lost a 50/50 early on day two and was down to around 80k at the next break, 13 left. Made a decision in the break to go up a gear, especially consider that three of my five table opponents were part of teams who were still double-handed and in with a chance, so would be playing for points - understandably so, the correct thing to do in their position. Besides with the blinds 4000/8000 I had little choice. First hand UTG after the break I look down and see an ace. I moved in without looking at my other card. All fold. Squeeeeeeze the 2nd card.....another ace. :@ That was followed by 3 consecutive non-called all-ins and more of the same for the next level. Up to 250k without seeing many flops. Then raised it up with A3 in late position, smaller stack shoved and I was priced in. He showed 88. Flop was A J T :nana Turn 9 :unsure River 8 :eyes It was Dave from the Sky Poker team and he was such a nice bloke it was hard to feel aggreived. Then a similar story a while later, this time on the FT bubble, raised it up with As5s, again faced an smaller all-in from the blinds - getting 11/4 for my money I had to call. He showed 77. Flop was 8s9s8d :hope Turn 8c :( River 4s - making my flush just for the for the rub-down :wall I suppose I was lucky with my seating at this time, on the right of Wayne (APAT) I was able to steal blinds as he was surving to get his team over the winning line - and rightly so, it was mission accomplished for him with his team eventually winning. So I managed to hold on and made the FT with 121k (average 178k). The prized were pretty flat... 1st £1250 2nd £750 3rd £450 4th £250 5th £250 6th £250 7th £250 8th £250 9th £250 The BB was 12,000 and with no staggered prizes I wasn't going to hand around. First hand UTG 33. All in. As written above I ran into JJ, it's no surprised it was documented that I was out, I thought I was too. But I covered the guy and was left with a measily 37k (3 BB's or 2% of the chips in play). However the rumours of my death were greatly exaggerated. Found JsTs in the next couple of hands and doubled up when my jack river beat Ace-high. Up to 70k. Another double up soon after, this time with QQ vs 77. Now nearly 200k and a stack I could play with. Took a short stack out when woke up with AA in the BB. After more stealing and re-steals I was up to around 450k. The total opposite to the previous day, one all in on day 1, around 50 all-ins on day 2 - dynamics dictate. ;) Pivotal hand no2 came when 6 left, SB moved in for around 210k. I was in for 20k in the BB with KQ. I didn't see him as the type of player to sit and wait so as he had 10BB and there was over 60k in the pot before the cards wer dealt, I felt KQ would play well against his range. He was in front but I wasn't in too bad a shape vs his A8. I hit the flop and surived a flush scare, was the only time my chips were not in first in the important pots. Around 40% of the chips with 5 left. We were soon down to three and I had half the chips. But as it says above I lost a massive pot. Shoved first to act with 44, the BB calls with A9 and wins the race, was now the short stack. All in very next hand my QJ was called by 77, I think Al told Brian it was a rivered straight but as it says above I flopped it. :tongue2 A checkdown the very next hand ensured the Newcastle forum guy and I were heads up. His timing was spot on throughout the FT and played well to get HU. After all that the HU lasted one hand (see above). Sorry if that's a bit long but thoght one or two may be interested in a write-up. Like I say, great to meet PL'ers properly and hope it's the first time of many. Thanks again for the support and comments on here and from the team. :ok
Just wanted to pop over and say brilliant win Billy and fully deserved, I was rooting for you after I pushed my 78 into your aces. Just read your report, very nice of you to comment you weren't aggrieved as I was such a nice bloke!! You saw I was walking off lol as the river 8 fell, slightly embarrassed but you need that sometimes and ultimatly it got me to the FT. I did think you would win it once you came back from being felted from the 33. Anyway was a pleasure to meet you and play quality poker with a quality player, fantastic win and good luck in the GUKPT, take it down bud!! Dave (Sky Poker):nana
