2:21 pm 100' Hose: Post Incendium curre bene...?
4:22 Persuadeo: I just woke up and you are hurting my brain.
4:22 Confector Acervorum: Bust
4:22 C.A.: Didn't work out.
4:23 100': Sorry. That sucks.
4:24 P.: Oy.
4:24 C.A.: Eh
4:25 C.A..: Kinda unraveled there at the end
4:26 C.A.: Down to 30 people had about 30k was slight chip leader 300/600 was a bad level
4:26 C.A.: Kept running into AQ v Ak type situations
4:28 Gargamel: Yep tourneys are higher variance than cash, which are plenty swingy
4:30 100': Yup. Best path to minimize variance is a job.
4:30 C.A.: Best path to minimize variance is a gun.
4:30 C.A.: Ya one spot I should've folded AQ lost 9k in chips that was kind of the key hand
4:31 100': Sux. Was it all in from EP short stack, you called from mid and some nit shpped behind?
4:31 100': That is an AQ tourney fold
4:32 C.A.: No this decent young asian player open raises utg 1500 at 300/600
4:33 C.A.: To me that is a pretty wide range
4:33 C.A.: He's got 9000 chips
4:33 C.A.: I'm in big blind with AQ
4:34 C.A.: I was just gonna call but what threw me off with this older Asian guy with 15000 calls on the button
4:34 C.A.: And this guy was turning over some weird ass hands
4:35 C.A.: So I wasn't tryna get in some weird three legged AQ trap flop
4:35 100': You 3 bet?
4:35 C.A.: So I bumped it to 5000
4:35 C.A.: Kid goes all in old asian folds
4:36 C.A.: Have to call kid has AK
4:36 C.A.: flop was all low rag
4:37 C.A.: So if old guy was out I would've either won that pot or lost 3500-4000
4:37 100': Not too terrible, but coulda raised to 9000 though.
4:37 C.A: lol huh?
4:37 C.A.: what are you talking about?
4:38 C.A.: I shouldn't have been so aggressive with AQ in that spot
4:38 G.: What made you think he was wide when he opened?
4:39 C.A.: i've played with him before he morw kind of play by the book but he's kind of a pussy he's not doin crazy stuff
4:40 100': He has 15 BB, he's probably not super wide from EP, but he might fold AQ or <1010 if you take away all his perceived fold equity and force him to put it all in.
4:40 C.A.: I really was only afraid of AK there
4:40 C.A.: He's limp shoving with AA KK
4:41 100': You were going to call any shove. Why not put him to the life decision.
4:41 P.: Probably go conservative against this guy but a theorist would say you did well. Tough ending.
4:42 100': Just a thought. Sounds like you played ok.
4:42 C.A.: Raising 9000 looks weaker than reraising 3x
4:42 100': Who cares what it looks like. It ends his tourney.
4:45 P.: Good point.
4:42 C.A.: He's not a bad player
4:43 G.: If he's a puss UTG, next time you can just fold AQ
4:44 C.A.: What it looks like is pretty important when you're deriving part of the value in your play from him folding
4:45 100': Agreed, but he's more likely to fold to all than some. A button call there is a squeeze op for you.
4:44 C.A.: And you have to take into account the button caller has 15k
4:44 C.A.: He was playing kind of weird
4:45 C.A: So let's say I make it 9k and then he goes all in
4:45 C.A.: Now what?
4:46 C.A.: I agree normally but like I said he was kind of unpredictable and he had a lot of chips
4:46 C.A.: That's a bad combo
4:46: C.A.: Yes I should've just called
4:47: C.A.: When someone makes it 2.5x
4:49: C.A.: Then I lost another big flip all in pre I had AK other guy QJ
4:49: C.A.: went from final table to short
4:49 100': That sux
4:49 C.A.: Happens
4:50 100'.: What's a good point?
4:51 C.A.: Can't go conservative man... u gotta put the iron to the cattle if u tryna eat steak
4:52 C.A.: Happens
4:52: P.: Raising bigger. Sounds like the Amber Alert is over.
4:52: 100': Ha
5:09 P.: Thinking it through, no one is folding their utg range vs. the Confector.
5:10 100': Then fold?
5:10 100': Flat?
5:11 P.: Either one. Fucking tournaments.
5:12 100': So raise bigger, fold, or flat. Helpful.
5:13: P.: You got it.
5:15: 100': Given Confector's perceived range, does guy call a shove with A10? Does he have A10 in EP range.
5:22 P.: Neither
5:36: 100': Tricky spot.
