Yesterday I played a WSOP No Limit Hold’em Freeroll Super Satellite shootout at PokerStars. Top 10 advanced to another tournament where the winner would receive the WSOP tournament package.
Total entrants: 9723 players
My place: 372
Good news: Top 4%
Bad News: Donkey Test’s crowning of me as Average – able to go deep but not cash holds true (for now :-))
I won the first table in 19 minutes, then waited 2 hours while the remaining tables played.
Ten players, one sitting out the entire time. One very aggressive player (bikersue). Once she had accumulated ~5K in chips, she was in nearly every hand. Calling and raising with good hands and garbage. I figured she and I would be heads up for the table.
Blinds: 50/100; 4 players left; three playing, one sitting out.
I had 3820. Bikersue had 9410 .
Under the gun, I raise to 600 with Ah Td. SB folds, BB – bikersue calls.
FLOP 3s Tc Qh
bikersue: bets 500
PokaPaloma: raises 2710 to 3210 and is all-in
BOARD 3s Tc Qh 6d Jh
bikersue: shows Th Qd (two pair, Queens and Tens), and I’m busted.
The way things were going, it didn’t matter what bikersue had in her hand. She was calling and/or raising with everything. So, I had to pick good hole cards and jump in. A 10 was one of the best hands I had had that round.
