Ok, fo starters I am really tired after a monster 12 hr grind however i thought I will let you know about how the team is doing in Macau. First off, this has been the most memorable of the 3 trips I have done to Macau. Firstly the results and the epic stuff we do here.. The team has already had 3 Final tables and Bhalla and I are deep in 2 really big tourneys.
I am only going to discuss about the Main event in this blog as this is the biggest tourney I have ever played in my life…
Day 1 – It was a monster grind. The structure is super deep with 1 hr levels and 30k starting stacks. I had to really grind it out to end the day with a Good 100k stack which could help me a lot on day 2. My first table had Kenny Shih ( Wsop Main event 14th place finisher) and I had position on him. I started off aggressively on that table showing down bluffs and getting paid off with my monsters. One interesting hand –
I Opne A2o UTG +1 at200-400 25 ante and I get 2 callers. Flop is JJ6 rainbow. I check, and one guy bets out 900, the other player folds and I make it 2200, He repops it to 4800 and I make it 9k total and he mucks. I show the A2 here just to set the table image which helped get max value out of a flopped set of 33.
Day 2 – A bigger Grind. My first table broke in a few minutes , but I was able to get a few chips when I sucked out on QQ with my 77. Later I got a few chips and moved to about 180k. I then got moved to a very tough table with 2 PokerStars pros. One was Mement_mori , a very good online player who had position on me on that table. I played really aggressive on this table, opening a lot of pots, huge 3 barrels and even a cold 4 bet with K7o which worked in my favor. Here I was able to chip up to about 200k which was an above average stack at the end of day 2.
