BLUEDAY'S DAILY POKER BLOG

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm going to be posting stuff in here about my day's poker playing. My poker username is either bluehaze, bluehaze222 or blueday1.   Most weekdays - I play in the evening and weekends - as often as I can.

Well today was not a brilliant day for me. 

 

I've played 3 sitngos - I won the first one on pkr.  Lots of fish trying to get lucky with rubbish - so I played tight and whooped all of them.  Payout was small but lets me have 4 more games which is good.

 

Second sitngo  - on sky - came 2nd.  Beaten by a guy holding pocket Qs.  I had AQ which is a great hand and even better when heads up.  Sadly i didn't hit the Ace and he won with his queens.

 

Third sitngo - sky again - came 4th.  Guy was betting with rubbish all the way through.  I was getting low on chips so decided to push all in on the button with A7.  One caller - the fishy guy.  He was slow playing Aces - trust me to pick that one to push all in on.  I had A7 and needless to say I lost.

 

I shall continue on and let you know of any better news later.

Today  has been - in as few words as possible - a waste of time.

 

I managed to come 3rd in a sitngo where only the top 2 places paid (10 seater), 10th in a MTT where only the top 5 spaces paid.

 

I also played on PKR.  I'm all in with the QK.  The caller has been raising my BB every time so I decided to fight back.  Here is a screenshot - what do you reckon happened next?

Basically - my Q beat his 9 and I won the hand on the high card.  I went on to finish 2nd.

 

And finally....I just whooped butt on sky in a sit and go - beating 5 other players.  Down to two players and I hit a flush on the river.

Well I only managed to get in a couple of games tonight - played on Mansion for a change.

 

I was absolutely pathetic in the first game - finished nowhere near the money in a $5 sit and go 10 seater.

 

Fancied my chances in a "double your money" tournament.  So I had a go at the $2 one - top 5 places double their money so if you're an "ok" player - you stand an easy chance of doubling your dough.  Everyone actually plays better in these tournaments and the play is fairly tight.  I quite enjoy these games as I'm a tight player anyway.  It took about an hour to get down to 6 - so that gives you an idea of how tight the play really was. 

 

In the end I think everyone got bored and so when the poor guy with only 50 chips was all in - 3 players called and just checked it down. Needless to say, the poor chap never stood a chance against 3 other players and he went out.  Next hand - you would have thought that everyones houses were caving in - every player went all in including me and I ended up wiinning the hand with Q9 suited and hit 2 pairs.  Three of the other players went out which left one player who had 100 chips and me. 

 

Final hand - I have Q2 and my opponent had Ace rag.  Board ends up with 3456 and I win with the straight.  The point of this type of tournament is that if you place in the top 5 - you all win double your cash back. 

 

Great fun, tight play and some great hands makes these tourneys really enjoyable.

I haven't played for a couple of days as i've been out in the evening.  I've just had a quick sit and go on sky and got whooped by some muppet chasing a flush.

 

Its my own fault for not "getting him off it" during play.  He had 24 clubs - called on a pre flop raise - I had AJ off.  Flop comes - I hit my ace and theres one club on the board.  I bet high - player calls.  Turn - club.  I bet high again - player calls.  River club - I bet - player goes all in and I call thinking its a "steal" and he produces the flush with his rubbish.  Theres too many fish out there to beat em.  But I won't give up.

 

So I just played another one - had K9 unraised BB.  Flop comes down 954.  Opponent bets and I raised heavy.  He called.  Turn 7.  I bet heavy again  - he goes all in and I call.  I show pair 9s he shows pocket 8s and then the river comes 6.  He gets his straight and I get knocked out.

 

Play it perfect and still lose.

Well after working all day I've only managed to squeeze in one game so far.

 

Cheapy sit and go on PKR - 10 player and top 3 positions pay.

 

One guy had most of the chips throughout the game - knocking people out and stealing chips with reasonable hands.

 

I was folding most of the time - all rubbish hands like 25 off etc.  Anyway I managed to stay in down to 4 players (took a couple of players out along the way) and then the hands started coming.  AA, 10 10, AJ suited etc.  Rather than let the fish get lucky - I bet heavy and took the blinds down as they were up to 100/200 at the time. 

 

Another player is knocked out which means I'm in the money.  The guy who had most of the money throughout the game starts to make mistakes.  Guess he thought he would keep his luck but he frittered his chips calling with second rate hands (like Q4 off) and finally was knocked out by the player who was now holding most of the chips.

 

I didn't stand a lot of chance as I was short stacked in comparison but I fought a tough battle and finally went out with K7 against his KQ.  He hit his Queens and I was history.  Was  a good game though and I tripled my outlay.

I had a quick game last night - 6 seater speed sitngo on PKR

 

I started playing very tight and only premium hands but the fish were taking all the chips and I was getting a bit low.  So I played even tighter - folding if I didn't hit, watching the hands they played and bet on and as soon as I started getting pocket pairs and top hands, I bet heavy to stop the fish getting lucky.  Gradually got my stack back up and there were 4 left.

 

Kept playing tight, raising huge and taking the pots down without showing which was good enough for me.  You can't beat the fish until their "lucky streak" is over.  As soon as they started making mistakes, I moved in taking down the pots by minimum betting.  I managed to knock one out and the other player who was chip leader took the 3rd player out.  This meant that I was guaranteed cash.

 

I then changed my play to suit the player  - he was quite tight and was folding the rubbish and I managed to take a fair few chips off him by betting heavy with high cards and small pairs. 

 

it got to the point where he decided to loosen up and the battle went on for about 20 minutes.

 

He got lucky when he hit a straight on the river and I was then down to $1860.  it didnt look good!  ::)

 

Next hand I doubled up with two pairs and I won the next few hands and managed to get up to $5045 to his $3955.

 

I was then dealt 3 5 off and I was big blind unraised.  Flop comes 9 3 4 so i bet min to test the water and the guy went all in.  So I called him having hit the bottom pair and thinking that the chances of him hitting was remote.  He had K8 - so he had nothing.  Turn comes K.  River comes 5 so i won with 2 pairs and won the tournament.

 

It was a good game and I was chuffed that I beat this player (with a lot of luck on the river).  So my pathetic bankroll on there went up by a few bucks again and I live to fight another day!

A reasonable day for poker playing.

 

Wins 1

Place 2

 

I've had a reasonable day today - won the first 6 seater this morning and placed 2nd twice and I'm up on the day by a few bucks which is good.

 

Its too late (12.37 in the morning) to post all the details as I have work tomorrow but the last game was a $3 sitngo on PKR and after seeing off all the bluffy fish its down to the final two of us.  I won a couple of hands by reraising this guy that kept raising throughout the game.

 

I'm still behind at this stage.  Next I get KJ and the guy raises me. So I re-raise him and he puts me all in.  i showed my KJ - he shows QJ...well here is the hand from the hand history.

 

JohnnyLarsen shows [Jh Qd]

bluehaze shows [Jd Kh]

Dealing Flop [9d 6c Td]

Dealing Turn [8h]

JohnnyLarsen does his best dancing ever.

Dealing River [7s]

bluehaze has Straight, Jack high

JohnnyLarsen has Straight, Queen high

JohnnyLarsen wins $5,930 with: Straight, Queen high

 

Needless to say he got lucky and I was knocked out in 2nd place.  But I made a few bucks and it was a good game.

Only one game tonight - a 6 seater sitngo.

 

Was a game with many fish!  One guy calls mid position with 10 3 off and was betting heavy with a pair of 3s he'd hit on the flop.  His opponent was very low stacked and raised all in.  He called and his opponent had a pair of Aces.  Turn nothing.  River 10 so he won with his fishy 2 pairs.

 

Down to 3 players and this was the next hand

bluehaze: ooh ul

Seat 1: bluehaze - $6,255

Seat 3: Haisulit111 - $2,745

Seat 4: DavidTH - $0

 

Now you would think that me being chip leader would be enough to secure the win.

 

Wrong - the guy kept getting lucky and I came 2nd.  I tried to bluff him on the last hnd but he was so fishy he called anything and he hit a pair of 10s and finished me off.

 

Shame on me!

Just had my quickest heads up game ever.

 

First hand I'm dealt AA and the opponent was SB.  They just flat called and I min raised.  Flop comes JQ4.  Opponent bets 20 I raised the pot, they re-raised the pot and I re-raised and this went on until we were both all in.  Opponent shows J9.  Turn 9. Omg - they are in the lead with two pairs Js 9s and I only have aces.  River 4.  I have As 4s and win. 

 

Phew

Three games - 2nd, nothing and 3rd

 

Not a brilliant evening however 3rd place paid the same as first so that was good.  The game where I came 2nd was ok.  Some fish kept getting lucky with his rubbish - there were two of them at the table.

 

I managed to stay in and it went down to two players and heads up is a different "kettle of fish" (pardon the pun).  The hand that took me out - I had A2 hearts and had about 4k left so I decided to push all in and the fishy opponent called me with Q5 off.  Flop comes 285.  Turn Q - I knew this was the end. River 3.  Pah beaten by a fish with Q5 off but then thats the very nature of heads up.

 

I do practice heads up games now and then.  It does me good and reminds me to loosen up a bit.

 

Overall I was up on the evening.  Not so bad after all.

I played one game on PKR and despite the fact they were all men, overbetting and fishing for hands, I won.

 

Down to two players and the guy thats left checked a lot of the time so I was able to steal a few pots.  Chips are even and the play is fairly tight.  It gets to the point where I am well in the lead with $7595 chips and the opponent has $1405.

 

Here is the final hand

 

Button is at seat 6

Seat 4: bluehaze - $7,595

Seat 6: Yahha - $1,405

Moving Button to seat 4

bluehaze posts ante of $75

bluehaze has Straight, 10 high

bluehaze wins $2,810 with: Straight, 10 high

Seat 4: bluehaze - $9,000

Seat 6: Yahha - $0

 

Ten Queen isnt a bad hand heads up - in fact I consider it a good hand heads up aqt that late stage of the game.  Seeing him hit his 6 made me wonder if that was going to be it but the 8 on the turn meant the best he could hope for was a split with a 10 on the river.  Gladly that didn't happen and I walked away with 4 times my stake.

 

Only one game but a great result for me.

Well only one game tonight on pokergear - the freeroll.

 

Didnt get one decent hand but managed to come 300 and something out of 700 odd.  Pretty rubbish to be honest with rubbish hands.  Not even worth a mention really.

 

Many many fish on there and their freerolls have rebuy and addons so you can imagine what the play is like.  Dire!  Thats the word that springs to mind.

I had a "quick" 6 seater on omaha - I came 3rd due to some fish getting lucky on the river.  But it was a good game and I haven't played omaha in a long time.  I had some nice hands too.

 

Also played a game on www.islandpoker.com - an MTT.  (I did speak to live chat and ask if they would give us some no deposit chips but nothing doing at this time - sorry folks)

 

It got so late I had to throw it at 2 a.m. as I had work in the morning and had to be up at 6 a.m.  But I was doing well and was gutted I had to leave the game.  Probably should have posted and folded and I may have come in the money as I came 13th when I threw it.  It was a small starting field but was a rebuy and addon.  Not overly keen on these games but the real poker play doesnt start until after the first break.  Its all fishy muppets trying to get lucky with rubbish up to that point.

 

An enjoyable game nonetheless and some really nice people on that site - mainly Canadians.  Next time, I won't play that tourney unless Im not working the next day!

 

How are you getting on Mago666?

Just had a sitngo on PKRand whooped this guy after being behind when heads up.  It was a good game and he was calling and raising most hands.  I decided to call his bluff at one point and that put me in the lead when I'd hit a pair of sixes.

 

Here is a piccy of the final hand - finally remembered to do a screen shot

Im in the middle of an MTT - currently 4th and i just hit a straight flush.  This player had been raising my BB every hand and I was folding and folding anyway - I'd had enough so I called his raise.  I had A4 suited clubs.  Flop comes 825 all clubs.  So I just went all in and the other players called.  He had pocket Aces  :o  Turn comes 3c - yay straight flush for me and he has no chance of winning. 

 

Made the final table - only top 6 pay!

 

7 left - on the bubble now

 

Managed to scrape 5th - at least I won some cash back.

I just played in the cheapest MTT at 11c buy in.  It was a rebuy and addon tourney and I rebought once and added on once so it cost me 33c to enter. 

 

I managed 2nd and won $4.60 which was a good return.

 

Trouble with these tournaments is that the players don't care if they lose before the break cos they can rebuy until the break so unfortunately, they play like fishy muppets.

 

It was a good game after the break as the real poker play began then.

 

It was down to 4 players and I hit QQ so I raised large and the chip leader (by a long long way) put me all in so I called and he had 55.  Q came on the flop plus a couple of Jacks so I had full house against his 2 pairs.

 

Anyway - 2nd place was good considering he had 125k against my 30k.  I will be playing these tourneys again because the return is so good and its easy to make the final table and place.

 

The name of the site is www.islandpoker.com

Well after being give 5 bucks by poker stars I've had a buck sitngo and won that.  Now Im in a 360 entrant MTT and there are 5 of us left.  Entry was a mere 10c and as Im writing this there now only 3 of us left.  Prizes are good for the entry price - worst for 3rd is 4 bucks and best is 1st for 8.50.  Good return for 10c.

 

 

Well after a huge bad run of crappy cards and bad luck I came 3rd - was winning on my final hand with just ace high - and then the guy who called me with his "nothing hand" hit a 9 high straight on the river.

 

$4 in the bank and 3rd out of 360 is pretty good for 10c

This has to be my worst night for poker ever!

 

I played 2 x $3 games and 1 x $5 and came nowhere in any of them.  Lost to a fish on one hand where I had QQ -  I raised quite large pre flop and he was BB and decided to call with his 79 off!  He hit a straight on the river after I put him all in and he called.  What a fish - or "poison" as he was french.

 

The only game I won was a $1 double your money on poker stars - last 5 left in win double their money back,

 

That was my night!

 

Tomorrow Im in the $1,000,000 satellite freeroll on poker heaven.  Fingers crossed I have a better night tomorrow!  Will let you know which position I finish in.

Well I didnt do so well in the million dollar tourney - there were 7 people on the table sitting out and 2 others playing.  One was called Donkey something or other and he truly lived up to his name! 

 

He was betting like a muppet and stealing all the "post and folders" blinds and was trying to steal mine all the time too.  I called a few hands and beat him which showed the rubbish he was calling or raising with.

 

A good few hands in, Im big blind - he decides to go all in cos I clearly got to him and I'd seen some of the hands he was betting with so I called.  I had JK off and he had 9 10 off.  Flop comes down J4K so I hit two pairs and the turn was nothing much either.  I thought I was "in" and he was going to lose.  Then the river came - you can guess what I'm going to say it was - yep a Queen - the muppet hit his straight.  I was so mad I couldnt post this last night.  I dont normally get angry when I lose but this muppet just got lucky with his rubbish and that was his reward for bad play.

 

Needless to say I was knocked out and came 1000 and something. 

 

I also played a 5 bucks 10 seater sitngo on another site and happily came 3rd in that so won $10.  A better end to the evening at least.
