WSPL Goes to Vegas Episode 03/11
This week was odd. Jasons S and K were no-shows again.
I did really well in the beginning. I doubled up early with QQ. Jason M called a flop bet, then I check raised him on the turn when I picked up a set. I went all-in on the river and he called with bottom pair. I have no idea what he was thinking.
The next hand I had 72o and bloffed Greg off of a big pot with a large bet on the river when it gave flush possibilities.
I got QQ additional times in the tourney, but each one fared worse than the hand before.
Before I get to that, I'll just say that I was tired and not really focusing on the game, so I made a bunch of plays that I probably wouldn't have normally made. Some worked, some didn't. I was never really in danger of going out until I did.
My second QQ came when I was in the big blind. Archie raised from the small blind and I reraised, causing him to fold. (side note, our group has gotten terribly passive. So much preflop limping and family pots.
My third QQ came four handed. I raised, and Shane reraised out of the big blind. The flop is all under cards, two clubs and he bets my remaining chips. I make a crying call, putting him on KK or AA. He turns over AK, both clubs. That was actually a good bet on his part. Something I didn't think him capable of. Puts a ton of pressure on me to fold plus he has a ton of outs. Which of course he hits.
Not a terrible result except that it was one of my better results this season.
Here are the results from this week, and the overall standings.
- Jason M
- Jason K (DNP)
- Jason S (DNP)
- Jason M (85/84)
- Mark (88/81)
- Shane (68/66)
- Aaron (68/64)
- Greg (62/62)
- Me (57/55)
- Noah (55/53)
- Jason S (48/48)
- Jason K (19/19)
So unless my math is wrong Jason M and Mark have clinched the top two spots. Technically Shane could tie mark, but Jason M said he doesn't think he can make it next week, and the other two Jason's I don't expect to show at all, so there is an almost guaranteed three points for Mark.
