  • Final Hand Review

    Mid way through Level 14 Blinds were 1500/3000/3000
    Day 1 ends at the end of level 15, 45 minute levels.

    Our table just broke and was playing I believe my 3rd hand. I didn't know anyone at this table.
    However the player to my left had just mentioned that the guy who was about to open was opening a lot of pots and being aggressive.
    This was in response to a comment I made after an old guy called off his stack to what I thought was super lose vs the same V.

    V I estimated his stack to be about 75BB and from MP he opens to 8000
    folds to
    H Bu I had 39BB 117000 holding 5c5h

    we go heads up

    Flop 5s8s (4 or 6x I forget)

    V C-bets 8000
    H raise to 20000
    V all-in has me covered 2-1

    Full disclosure this is were I think I may have made my first big mistake the entire day regardless of how this plays out. I didn't take
    the time to think about my remaining chips or even consider the possibility of folding. In my mind he shows up to often with a big
    over pair, or an Ax Kx flush draw. But even when we are so often way ahead should we ever consider a fold in the late stages of a
    day 1 with enough time remaining to still chip up to a respectable day 2 stack?

    I dont fold the Top of my range here

    55 is in it.

    On Flop I would raise bigger lets say 25000 until 26000

    there was 1 day after a nice deep run I have changed my mindset in Terms of poker is not 1 Tournament in a day or one Session in a day it is a Life Time Session and you cannot beat up yourself going broke with the Top of your range here even if he happens to have you beat here

      You can think about folding, sure, but don't fold. If you had said something like, "I have a long history with this player and know he plays his draws passively. I've never seen him 3-bet the flop with less than two-pair. I block bottom-pair so there aren't many combos of hands I beat," then sure fold. But against random tourney guy, no way. If it's a cooler it's a cooler.

      Also FWIW, I'd rather bust end of day 1 than drive all the way back to the casino the next day just to bust early day 2.

        BUT I live 20 minutes away and only 100k would be 20BB st start level 16 which was to be 60 minutes long.

        Of course I snapped him off, he instantly said I got the nuts and flipped over 88 lol.

        Yeah I wasn't really sure if stack preservation is ever an issue here. That's never been part of my mindset and I have more than my fair share of late Day 1 bust outs.

      I think bottom set is worth going broke. I am not folding a set here. I may if we're on stone bubble and there are a couple of players that are about to bust. But probably not, i assume he had a set of 8s here going by remembering if it was a 6 or a 4. With that said he is doing it with all over pairs too.
