I am Dead!

posted in Live WSOP 2010 Action |

skull-cardsI didn’t have the heart to tell you earlier, but I got knocked out today shortly after my other bad experience.

Do I feel bad?


The reason is because I did the very best anyone could do given the situation. No one would have played differently. Here is what happened in the closing hand.

I was on big blind and was holding Queen, Jack and was able to see a free flop.

The flop came Queen, Jack, Jack – again ALL my dreams had come true. Being 1st to act I decided to check to encourage a few people to enter the pot.

One chap raised, two players folded, leaving me playing ‘Heads Up!’ with the perfect hole cards.

Turn came 4.

The same guy raised me to all-in.

I gladly called and he showed Ace, Jack as his hole cards. To say he was gutted when he saw my full house was an understatement. I felt I was on my way to the final table when, in fact, I was playing my final hand.

The Grim Reaper was waiting behind me to slice my head off.

You guessed it – the river card was an ACE giving the guy a higher full house than mine.

Thank you for your comments and don’t go away because there is more exciting news to follow over the coming days.

    You lasted longer than Helmuth,Raymer,Obrestad,Matusow! All Day 1 casualties.

    Agree that you played your A-Game. You can only get the money in with the best of it.
    If you leave your oppo with less than 5 outs on the river every coup, (ideally drawing dead) then the poker gods will reward you long term.

    Without realising it at the moment, your game is getting stronger the more you play these events. If you only play Torquay/Plymouth week in week out then that’s the standard you’ll achieve. I’ve said to many of the players, they’ve got to put themselves into the mix with other festivals with good structures and improve their game strategy. If they just want it as a hobby, that’s fine too.

    Well done.
