The Rematch with 39 Big Pot Hand Histories

28 Mar 2011

I was down right off the bat and it looked like a repeat of last week. I was down to 20k at one point, stuck $130k in the match, but fought match to win it down the stretch. Once I took the lead in the last 500 hands, the lead changed hands about 5 or 6 times till the bitter end when I started to make some hands.
In total we played 39 pots of 20k or more, and below you'll find every one of them, including hands that I didn't show. I ended up winning $26,500, EV adjusted was $55,000. Now, I know some people hate that I post the EV adjusted total, but I think it's a very interesting note to add to the results of a session so I'm not going to stop doing that, even IF I start running above EV. In the two matches versus Isildur1 I ran a combined 70k below average in all in pots. I'm not whining about it I swear! Just posting the facts people.

I added some comments below each hand, but plan on doing an extensive video for www.pokervt.com for the members there. Also, if you missed my video blog I did a couple days before the match, you can find it here: RawVegas.tv

Of the 39 pots we played that were 20k or bigger, I won 21-18. Over both matches I lost 23-30.

***Pretty interesting hand. I called the flop since he bets almost every flop and Queen high is going to be good a lot. Turn I have the straight draw. I hit on the river, but didn't bet because I didn't think he'd call me with a King since I could have 4-5 or A-2, A3, A4, A5 so I thought it was better to check, hope he value bets thin, or goes for a bluff.

*** A lot of people might wonder what the heck he called me here for, but it actually made sense. Based on flow, I was checking pairs in this spot a lot. So he figured I was either super strong or I missed. Plus I'd been check calling flush draws, so the check-raise on the flop may have had him thinking I had something like A-8***

***I took an aggressive line here, leading with two overs and a flush draw, then firing on the turn when I picked up a straight draw. In hindsight, when he raised the turn I should call and try to hit, because the board is so draw heavy he wouldn't fold any pair I don't think. I was thinking he may have 8-10 or J-10 also and I have that beat with Queen high.*** (not sure about this hand, will need to think about it some more)

***Such an idiot! Gosh this is the worst hand I played the whole match and I hated myself as soon as I made the call. I tanked forever, but called. So stupid. He's never bluffing here, and he isn't raising me with less than K-J. I couldn't beat anything really. I talked myself into it thinking he'd raise me on the turn with K-8 or K-Q. I hate this call and it will haunt me.***

***This hand may seem weird, but I think we both played it perfectly. No way he can ever put me on an 8 and has to get full value from a 10. As for me, Ace high isn't a fold on the flop, I turn a pair to keep me in, then check the river in case he wanted to bluff at it. Betting the river would have been a weird bet.***
