Poker

While I'm in Melbourne for linux.conf.au (which finished yesterday), I thought I'd head down to the Crown Poker Room to get some action.

Unfortunately I missed the Aussie Millions by a couple of weeks, but I did run into one of the final tablist while there. He made alot of money.

I set myself a limit of $300.. so first I tackled the Sunday $100 ($85+$15) NLHE tournament. I didn't fair so well.. I got up in chips early (doubled up).. had a really unfortunate hand..

I was dealt [Kd] exposed, next card was [Ac] and my redealt card was [6s]. I elected to fold and out flopped [Kh][Kc][3d] - I was not happy! I definitely would have been in with [Kd][As] and my trips would have more than likely got me a healthy stack. D'oh.

I endeed up going out just before level 4 with my [Kh][As] vs [Jh][10s]. The flop was a blank and a [10c] came on the river sealing my fate.

From then I moved onto the $2/$3 NLHE. I bought in for $100 and about an hour later was up to $254 and cashed out when my seat in a $50 Sit'n'Go came up.

I didn't do too well in the Sit'n'Go either.. busted out in 6th place calling all-in with my [As][10s] against my offenders [Ah][Ac]. The aces held up.

Then I nearly left.. but decided to head back to the $2/$3 NLHE cash game again for $100. Only about 30 minutes in I was up to $306. At this point although I felt guilty leaving the table a couple hands after winning an $80 or so pot; but I knew it was starting to go to my head and I'd loste up and likely lose it all and probably more back. So I left, $210 up for the day.

Not a bad effort! Tournaments bad.. cash games good.. probably a bit lucky but the tables were quite soft, very often folding to reraises or calling down with bugger all.

Woo!
