    Herocall for all the chips. Looks like I'll get another shot to play a final sattelite for a tournament I'm already registered to playing (prague) this sunday

    (Software gives the wrong sizing tho pre leaving out the BB, I made it 3.5BB over a limp)

    I'm not thrilled having a jack and I'd much prefer snapping AQ, but I decided to go with this one based on the sheer number of bluffs that didn't hit

    hmm, I just busted a pretty good omaha stack close to a final table. The board was something like 10852 with irrelevant suits, river was a 4 and I ended up stacking off with 36 thinking I made the nuts.

    It's interesting because I had never realised a single card could complete 3 different straights at once. Just one of those things I had probably seen a lot of times without even thinking about before it hit me in the face

    We are running a big random bluff at the bubbla of the final table. the bet on the turn is spewy but once I do decide to pressure the turn without equity that river is pretty perfect for me because I make a bunch of nutted hands with flushes, 66 and 77 so it should at least be tricky for him to call one pair type hands. All in all I don't like my turn bet but after that I don't hate just running it

    Also, I just made the final table of an 11 dollar freezeout with 714 runners and a bit of an overlay

    edit: lost an almost 9 million chip pot set over set 44 v 88 on a T84dd flop, down to like 7 bigs.

    FInished 5th for 300 dollars

    Today we have some fun stuff going, playing a qualifying series for party 5k online event. cent qualifier to 5 dollar qualifier to 22 dollar qualifier to 100 dollar qualifier.

    Currently sitting with 1.1 million chips in the 100 dollar qualifier which is roughly 2x starting stack for the final qualifier and about 1000 dollars in equity. On top of this I will also be playing a final qualifier for nordics prague again worth 250 dollars.

    On top of this we also have some money goals to chase, the goal is to make enough money to play a 550 euro and a 275 euro side event in prague, also maybe a few dollars for cg would be nice. I'm feeling optimistic today

    Edit: We did it, advancing to the 500 dollar step holding 1,5 million chips and roughly 1,5k$ in equity. We'll be playing both mega sattelites side by side, this is a bit crazy

    Not running too hot in the 5k qualifier, ran KK into AA against one of the top ranked players on the site, build back up and flipped TT v AQ and lost. Sitting with 770k in the break which is roughly average.

    Nordic has been a bit of a roller coaster, all in all I've gone from 250k to 325k so I'll jut pretend it has been going smooth. Time to refocus for next hour

    Edit: Ran QQ into KK for another big pot pre, down to 480k, still hope ofc

    Doubled nordic to 670k. checkraised A2 from the blinds and got shoved on by A10, my two pairs held vs his aces

    -------------------------------------

    Out of the 5k sat the last hand before the break, had a bunch of stabs not work out and final hand I called 23s from the BB for a 3 way flop and check shoved a 1064cc with a straight/fd, got called by queens and didn't hit.

    Nordic however is still alive and up to 895k, next hour will be big.

    -------------------------------

    Running really bad in all ins, ran JJ into QQ for a big pot and now JJ < A10s vs a short stack, down to 260k but hanging in there

    doubled KQ v A10 to 540k still fighting

    Got AA and KK back to back and they tried to bluff me off off my KK with KQ on a 10965 board, we're up to 1,5M again

    won several more pots and picked off a 3 barrel bluff. We defended 108o from the BB and called 3barrels after flopping top two even after the turn brought 4 clubs. We're now up to 3.3 million chips

    Make that 4,1 million chips, these extra chips are basically worth nothing but I've more or less decided that after last time I played this my approach should be not to shut down after reaching a good stack, because I blinded down super bad last time I did that and felt crowded as fuck.

    Make that 4,6 million, it's so ridiculously obvious that people are targetting me because I should be folding more with a big stack, give the some room to bluff and make some well placed calls and they go broke...

    Make that 4,8 million, stop...fucking...bluffing me in obvious spots already

    Boo, down to 4,1M, called down with top pair vs aces


    --------------------


    Break, sitting with 5 million chips. 16 players left 10 packages, no one outside of the top 10 has 1 million chips

    Another break, still 4,9 million. 12 left
