    I agree, but I think it would've made even less sense for me to be forced to show if he's allowed to give up his hand

    I don't know what to do in tournaments. In cash games I like to fast roll people to get the hand over with and to support etiquette. I'm not worried about showing hands.
    Looking for poker buddies. PM me.

    A Swing and a miss!

    I have a lot of food for thought after playing the event. I refuse to admit my table was tough, but they were tough enough so that if I didn't stick to my rangers I'd probably need to hit really well in all the plentiful aggro/3bet spots. to be fair I spent most of the 8 hours I played holding the botton half of my range in every spot more or less

    Once again I feel like I need to structure some thoughts and goals and such and this is a nice place for me to come back to for that. I'll add some more details, maybe trip report for Tallinn etc when I have time but for now I just need to get some things out of my head and into writing. I hope you guys are doing well.

    I'm taking a shot using some winnings from Tallinn, goal is to see if i can stabilize a live bankroll, to see if I can hit the casino high ranking finals and to play the upcoming special casino event "Oktoberkampen". the idea is to play 4 extra expensive tournaments then drop down to the still bankroll aggressive 600 SEK rebuy tournaments. It's a shot, we'll see which direction we can take this, I'm trying to sell some action to friends and such to lessen the hits while still going for ranking.

    Today I'm playing the 5600 SEK super weekend, a ranking tournament with 80+ runners, super nervous but I'm ready for this, I'll try to stay at the forum for a bit and provide some poker content, lets see if we can run this shot in the right direction, either way I'm ready for this

    current "bankroll": 50.000 SEK
    Goal1: 100.000 SEK

    Run good ! Sounds like you have a good plan in place to take your shot but still have a decent roll for your regular games

    It's good to be back, I think I fucked up but I'm gonna need to get 8 hours of sleep before breaking the hand down in my head. I played the 5,6k SEK event and afterwards played a 1500 SEK mini ranking event with added battle of malta packages which i cashed followed by some cashgames, overall for the night I'm back 4,5k SEK.

    Anyway for the possible fuckup here's what I did:

    - Open to 750 from our 30,5k stack, blinds 150/300 ante 25 with 89cc
    - 5 people call taking a flop 6 ways because wtf
    - flop Q72 two clubs
    - SB checks, BB jams for his last 6,2k
    - we call button calls SB jams covering us
    - we again call and button goes I guess I can't fold and calls

    showdown for a 100k pot
    us: 89cc
    SB: Q2o
    BB: KQo
    BU: 22

    by some miracle I think between the three of them they barely blocked any clubs either, unfortunately turn runs the last queen in the deck and Q2o ends up scooping a massive pot after calling from the SB pre. In this spot we got it in quite good, but that's no the case if button can easily have our clubs dominated, the queen on the board was a club so QJcc and KQcc combos were not a thing but button can still have Axcc and KJ K10cc that has us destroyed. My logic was that when the short stack jams raising seems meh since I want as many people in as possible when I hit my flush but that logic leaves us open to being dominated.

    My initial thoughts before going to sleep and looking at it later is that the multiway pot with the just over 1x pot shove on the flop has us in such an annoying spot that it's optimal to just fold to the initial jam, but I dunno... It was a tricky spot in my eyes and unfortunately that was the end of my 5k event
