Poker Session #13 - Suck Out
26 Feb 2014
Played at the Encore after work. The 6pm $500 guaranteed. I like to play 30-man SNGs but unfortunately only 14 showed up that night. Single table SNGs aren’t my strong suit as only 3 places pay out, and bubble play becomes tighter. I love aggressive bubble play, but there’s little place for that here. Towards the end, I got it in two times in a row a 9:1 favorite and got sucked out on both times. 7th place sadness.
Some older guy asked whether or not I dyed my hair and joked he would like to change to my style.
AA vs 58o on a 234 board, AQ vs QT preflop are no good.
- Went Well: thinking about good flops to check back (KQ on a AKx board)
- Mistakes: got a bit spewy after the suck outs and tried to punish + bluff OOP too large
- Get Better At: less results-oriented thinking, thicker skin
- Profit: -$60
