WSOP Update 7

I'm back in the UK now...

I did play a couple more events the $5000 NL Hold'em and the $1500 PL Hold'em.

The $5000 NL Hold'em i probably played my worst tournament of the Series and was a bit tilted after the second hand that i played.

Blinds 25/50... i raised the cut off with AK. The SB reraised me to 600. I called. the flop came K62 rainbow. He led out for 600... i made it it 1900... he made it 4200. Hmmm ... i folded. Its tough to think of a hand i can actually beat. Think given i have no reason to think he is making a move on me its like 35% we have the same hand or i am ahead, 65% chance i am behind. I mucked!

I missed two flush draws in big pots then busted with JJ v KK when i limp reraised in late position as my stack was dwindling!

The $1500 PL Omaha hand i lost most of my chips on was kind of interesting. My second hand everyone limped in for 50 chips (we started with 3000). I made it just 75 more with 4JQK DS. I then declared i wanted to find the Aces. One guy called and Andy Black made it 750 to play. I called. Flop 47J rainbow. I bet the pot and he went all in. He had QQT2 lol. He made his 4 outer on the turn of course. I was a bit tilted and was ranting how bad he played the hand... hehe

I then turned my 75 chips into back to 2000 by winning the next four pots... then busted in a 4000 chips pot the very next hand with TQxx v KKxx all in on a JKA3 turn. Wanted to rebuy but of course i couldn't! Doh...

Back to the grind online for a few weeks and then to Vegas for the main event and maybe the WPT championship. Can't make the $10000 PL Omaha unfortunately. It will be the first time i have missed it since the event started....

I got busted out of a tourney recently when I held AK and the flop was A87. There was a raise and a reraise before it got to me. I wanted to fold but instead I watched my hand move my stack into the middle. Someone held a set and I was on my way home. I wish at that point I had the same discipline as you.
