    I tried playing a live poker tournament again today. People are weird, early on I opened 108o from the button and got called bu bb, I checked back a 1042 flop and I bet a king on the turn, villain raised my to like 4x, I called river was a queen and he checked and showed Q3o.

    Later on I 3 bet AJo from mp and got a call from the button and the original raiser, flop was AQ4 two spades and I bet out around half pot, button called, turn was an offsuit 5 and I bet again like 75% pot, button called.

    River was the 6 of spades completing possible flushes, I check villain immediatly overshoved for 1.5x pot and I ended up folding, villain shows J6o randomly and that one did hurt. The double barrel was based on a live read that he looked quite reluctant to call flop, it was clear I was ahead a large %age of the time and I figured that guy from what I had seen wasn't very competent and would most likely keep callign worse


    I'm...gonna have to back to my drawing board to adjust to something like that lol. Later I ended up busting flipping KQ v 66

    It makes it seem you think it was a bad play to bet turn with top pair strong kicker, why?
    I crush the game

    I don't think AJ is terrible to bet turn for value here, but I like a sizing that puts flushdraws in a tough spot so they can't autofold.

    I think we're on the lower side of our value range here, and without a read it's tricky to barrel turn vs villains cold call pre range if he has a head (which he didn't), A10 A9 type hands work better as a bluffcatcher in this spot I think, hoping he'd bluff some draws

    Challenge time, I need better dicipline so lets do a bankroll challenge. I threw in 100$ onto stars because I wanted to play some more pokerstars tourneys but then decided it would be fun to try an run it up to 2k with proper bankroll management and dicipline. Can I do it? Who knows but I'm feeling inspired and want to try, I'll probably keep challenge days and regular grind days seperate and try to set some rules for myself with regards to stakes, also will try to stream a lot, should be fun, ofc this will be on the side of my studies and dancing so probably not many sessions per week

    Edit: I might have to reconsider or at least keep my eyes open with this, for some reason the 2 dollar mtt table I sat down at has two player amongst the top 0.5% on stars and only one semi bad player...this might not be worth it, we'll see

    Bankroll challenge would be fun but lets delay that until after WCOOP and powerfest, for now all focus goes to playing these series, the goal is simple, win at least 1 dollar. With these huge varience fields that might not be super easy

    3.2 million in the break, this next hour might be our last or at least a crucial one. Lets make a deeper run

    Update: 6,9 million in the break 69BB 45 players left. I'm afraid of busting and doing all these hours for "nothing" but I'm trying to stay centered and not worry about results. One hour at the time, next one will be swingy I'm sure. Last hour I 3 bet 7s in a bad spot and got bailed out vs JJ, if I hadn't I'd have been around 2 million rn, if I fuck up again I doubt I'll get another chance

    Update2: I ended up 28th, so close

    partypoker support is just trolling me now <.<

    I decided to play some more sattelites into the tournament I won a package for. I played a quarter final sat and ran up a stack worth 35 dollars that was entered into the next step. This semi final only had my entry and another guy so at best it looked like I could win 60k chips (final has a starting stack of 250k). Tournament was (and still is) paused due to what I'm assuming is a lack of chips in play.

    I contacted partypoker support and after about an hour of trying to make her understand sentences she informed me that the tournament was cancelled and my stack would be carried on into the next step of the series meaning the finals. So now they somehow cancelled a tournament so that instead of one 60k stack in the finals we now has a 35k stack and a 25k stack. On top of this I cannot play any more sattelites for a week because if I were to qualify with a bigger stack I just straight up burn 35 dollars of equity in the finals, this makes no sense on so many levels

    Edit: Support eventually came through for me and compensated me with 3 semi final tickets, glad it got sorted out
