Good match Naismith.That big pot early..I had TT for top set when you turned the straight.I don't go for that steal at will crap...had my 92 sucked out on that hand..I would have given you a rematch.Nice of you to return the 80 chip difference also.Key pot...Raise by me to 150 with blinds 50-100..re-raise by naismith..we get it allin with me having AJ vs. Naismith's A5...board comes TT88 for the chop.Final hand played itself with the blinds at 50-100...we get it allin preflop with me having 99, Naismith having AJ...AJ hits two pair..no miracle 9 on river...Naismith wins.Good Match.

Game Report:First off, much appreciation to Alf. After I signed up, the room did not pop up. When I finally got in the room, I had 800 chips left. He doubled me up intentionally on the first hand, we evened it out at 1500 and went from there.Here's the report from my perspective.Not much action early on. I had taken a 1760-1240 chip lead when I got lucky on the following hand:Seat 3: Naismith0 ($1,760 in chips)Seat 7: alf13800 ($1,240 in chips)ANTES/BLINDSalf13800 posts blind ($10), Naismith0 posts blind ($20).PRE-FLOPalf13800 bets $50, Naismith0 calls $40.FLOP [board cards 10S,6H,8D ]Naismith0 checks, alf13800 bets $60, Naismith0 calls $60.TURN [board cards 10S,6H,8D,9S ]Naismith0 bets $125, alf13800 calls $125.RIVER [board cards 10S,6H,8D,9S,5C ]Naismith0 bets $325, alf13800 calls $325.SHOWDOWNNaismith0 shows [ JH,7S ]alf13800 mucks cards [ 10C,10D ]Naismith0 wins $1,140.Not sure if I could've got more out of him. I didn't think I could unless he had a 7. I had him as low as 420, but he wouldn't make any mistakes. Unfortunately, I would make one...and moments after I told myself he hadn't raised out of position:Seat 3: Naismith0 ($2,425 in chips)Seat 7: alf13800 ($575 in chips)ANTES/BLINDSNaismith0 posts blind ($15), alf13800 posts blind ($30).PRE-FLOPNaismith0 calls $15, alf13800 bets $50, Naismith0 bets $2,395 and is all-in, alf13800 calls $495 and is all-in.FLOP [board cards 5H,JD,2D ]TURN [board cards 5H,JD,2D,AD ]RIVER [board cards 5H,JD,2D,AD,JS ]SHOWDOWNNaismith0 shows [ AC,5S ]alf13800 shows [ KH,AH ]Naismith0 wins $1,850, alf13800 wins $1,150.From there, he fought back to even. I had been catching some hands earlier, but once he got back to even, I switched gears (with the blind raise) and started betting out more aggressively. He caught me on a bluff and took an 1800-1200 chip lead. I fought back and took a 2:1 lead by playing aces horrendously and stealing a couple pots. I made another stupid play here and got lucky:Seat 3: Naismith0 ($1,790 in chips)Seat 7: alf13800 ($1,210 in chips)ANTES/BLINDSalf13800 posts blind ($25), Naismith0 posts blind ($50).PRE-FLOPalf13800 bets $125, Naismith0 bets $1,740 and is all-in, alf13800 calls $1,060 and is all-in.FLOP [board cards 10S,8C,2C ]TURN [board cards 10S,8C,2C,8D ]RIVER [board cards 10S,8C,2C,8D,10C ]SHOWDOWNNaismith0 shows [ AD,5S ]alf13800 shows [ JS,AC ]Naismith0 wins $580, Naismith0 wins $1,210, alf13800 wins $1,210.I built a 2500-500 lead but Alf again battled strong. I doubled him up to 1320 when I called a raise with Ac6c, flopped middle pair and doubled up his pocket eights.He came back strong and took a 1720-1280 chip lead, his earlier river bluffs paying off when I called a river bet with A-high. With the blinds at 50-100, the chips were moving back and forth pretty quickly. I had the lead going into the following hand, but I played it so badly, my soul died a little. I deserved to lose after this:Seat 3: Naismith0 ($1,630 in chips)Seat 7: alf13800 ($1,370 in chips)ANTES/BLINDSNaismith0 posts blind ($50), alf13800 posts blind ($100).PRE-FLOPNaismith0 calls $50, alf13800 checks.FLOP [board cards AD,5D,6H ]alf13800 checks, Naismith0 checks.TURN [board cards AD,5D,6H,7S ]alf13800 bets $200, Naismith0 calls $200.RIVER [board cards AD,5D,6H,7S,3D ]alf13800 checks, Naismith0 checks.SHOWDOWNalf13800 shows [ 7H,5H ]Naismith0 shows [ AS,7C ]Naismith0 wins $600.After all that back and forth, I had a 2:1 chip lead and the game ended in an anti-climatic form on a simple coin flip when my AJ hit and his 99 didn't improve.Anyhow, I terribly misplayed at least three hands and I can't really think of one he did. Good game, Alf.
