Played the EPT Baden satellite today with the W$ I cashed in from not playing the Dublin satellite last weekend. Very tough game. I raised once and folded to a reraise and after that they were all over me – two players in particular, both Scandinavian if you think that’s relevant…. Couldn’t get any respect and couldn’t pick up any pots uncontested, and never saw a hand to do any real damage.
Whittled away I end up losing a race in the most frustrating way. Can you believe the board didn’t pair?
Preflop: Hero is BB with Js, Jd.
6 folds, SB raises to t300, Hero raises to t1445 and is all-in, SB calls t1145.
Flop: (t2890) Jc, Kc, Ts (2 players)
Turn: (t2890) 5s (2 players)
River: (t2890) Ac (2 players)
Hero has Js Jd (three of a kind, jacks).
SB has As Qs (straight, ace high).
So I’m not going to Switzerland and I’m also not going to Vegas. 4th in tonights Poker Dome qualifier on Mansion. Which was much softer by the way, but you’d expect that for $22 instead of $475. I had aces cracked early on, fought my way back, ran into quads with a full house, managed to not go broke and almost recovered before finally going out 4th with 2 getting seats. A good performance considering the beats, but not enough to put me on the road to anywhere.
