[B]My Be(A)st Moment On Pokerstars[/B]

My Best moment in poker can be argued to a sad moment as wel for me in poker…

This is how it all started…i had being making a steady roll by playing the 1$ 45man non turbo and had made 700 FPP’s in the process also…Sunday was approaching and i felt like playing some Sunday major.

But still my bankroll was very small and i didn’t feel like putting even 1% of my bankroll into events i didn’t feel i have an edge in…So keeping my $’s aside i planned to play the Bigger 11$ and Sunday Storm…the only question was where to get the buyins from…i searched for the best possible FPP option available and found out the 70FPP 9 man sats that gave entry to 1 person to STORM…so 7:30pm Local time i setup for the grind… firred 2 70FPP SNG’s and began… the Storm happens 11:30pm local time whereas Bigger 11$ happens at 00:00hrs…i had 10 attempts and 4 hours to make my buyin… the 10 events happened and i was able to secure 2 entries… crushingly sad part was i was head up 5 times holding major chiplead 4 times and i blew 2 of them..one because of a huge bad beat and other cause of an ill timed 3 barrel bluff..so there i was with 22$ in hand so i registered the two events…

I started pretty good in storm rose up the ranks bt then became moreover cardead… Bigger 11$ had also started by nw and i was smooth sailing in both… i played pretty knit in bigger 11$ at start and also made a major fold.. at that point it was a big fold for me to make…

here’s how it happened.. i played them bad i know.. bt i was pretty sure the guy had a 10 post flop and would chase whatever happend… i should have 3-bet pre only and taken it doen… other guy paid him of with J9

everything was going smooth until i picked up AA in STORM.. a guy raises middle posion.. i 3 bet big with almost a pot size bet left behind on the flop when if he calls my raise.. he calls.. flop is 3 7 9.. no fluush draws..i check he bets.. he had a big stack he could easily do that with any overpair and Ace so i was more than confident to call and moreover had intended to put the money in on the FLOP only… he shows me 33 and i BUSTED

Bigger 11 i was pretty chatty on the table and picked my spots perfectly also observing the way everyone was playing which allowed me to fold this preflop

[replay hand_id=415214 type=ps title_id=2 showControls=1 themePath=table_PS_560x386.jpg lang=en gameEntity=0 hash=F1C92D593D]

i was so sure he had AA that i called it out on chat as soon as i folded

chipped up well… almost cooler this ..either i am very strong or very weat there

ONE MAJOR THING I NOTICED TO RUN DEEP IN A TOURNEY UR AK (Anna Kornikova) has to be on your side.. like this

[replay hand_id=415219 type=ps title_id=2 showControls=1 themePath=table_PS_560x386.jpg lang=en gameEntity=0 hash=B24C01313F]

i was always in top 30 1000people down.. then i starting fading in the backpack when 27 were left… played a bad hand BLIND vs BLIND and that is guess what costed me everything in the end…

Last hand jammed this.. standard play on button but the big bully in BB wakes up with better

[replay hand_id=415225 type=ps title_id=2 showControls=1 themePath=table_PS_560x386.jpg lang=en gameEntity=0 hash=F49AE7F407]

And i was left to wonder what could have been… my biggest score online then… but then i recognised there is always a tomorrow and my day will come soon to just got to keep on working hard


[B]Getting right back on the Horse[/B]

So will start my grind back on PokerStars from Monday onwards…

this is what i have left right nw

Main BR-104.5$
Sunday BR-8.1$

Round about 110ish… with this week leading to the 7th anniversary Sunday MIllion i plan to play the 1$ turbo sats to the 11$ Super sat…1.65R sats into ME and 1.02$ hypers if by any chance then only on Sunday before the Event…

Lets do this right nw

RANDOM UPDATE-oh dam i forgot to update the blog about recent happenings and only updated the thread

thread link here

in short i won a few 1$ sat to supersat 11$ and a 1.65R to Sunday million 215$

so bankroll nw

so current bankroll- 314$
Sunday grind bankroll- 9$

WBCOOP 1 2 3 4 and a costly 2 outer twice :([/B]

Yayyy WBCOOP started …all ready with 10 bullets to run in it…

First event was a very nice structure bt a big turn check raise bluff and a river value bet bluff on a hand costed me pretty much all my chips… -LESSON- PEople dont fold top pair whatever happens lol

Event 2-My favourite game OMAHA was on offer here…how could i ever miss this

Played my natural PLO game…chipped up..made a solid image and then made moves around…at one point was down to 8BB with 150 left..ws 148/148 with around 108 paid if memory serves me right

Crawed back..this hand is commitment when i start it


It was a good going till bubble which was the 5.5$ SCOOP ticket…

i cleared the first cash then it was the 11$ SCOOP ticket that was guarateed to me …and then this happened..what was the guy even thinking..lol…our very own PSO instructor ahar010 was there to see


sad got only 11$ ticket..

THIS BEING THE FIRST 2ish outer on river..not exactly 2 bt u get my point


I wanted to play this bad but since we have only 10 tickets at disposal i chose doing a very hard decision to skip this

Event 4-PLO/NLH

This was also tough for me to skip but i had started a 2.2$ PSO tourney that had a SUNDAY MILLION TICKET on offer and was playing well there so wasn’t much of a hard decision to skip this in the end


I was playing well there,,and had a pretty healthy chip stack going into FT..but two brutal hands happened back to back which i lost both even after having the guys dominated both times

[replay hand_id=419459 type=ps title_id=2 showControls=1 themePath=table_PS_560x386.jpg lang=en gameEntity=0 hash=A720AF10D7]

Entered FT pretty short but was pretty determined to win..u can see my twitter why i was sure showing my commitment lol @jdsazpoker

played solid won a flip and a domination to get a healthy stack

was 4/4 after some time and a well time tilt call by opponent handed me the chiplead

[replay hand_id=419463 type=ps title_id=2 showControls=1 themePath=table_PS_560x386.jpg lang=en gameEntity=0 hash=86ACD30BFC]

played well and ended HU with 1:1 chip with a good read on my opponent..played like 20 hands wheere chipstack did not change much…

i had also made note that he was raising big if i limped the BUTTON..so after losing some pots i did this..and when hence the COSTLY 2 OUTER came AGAIN…215$…was so close

[replay hand_id=419464 type=ps title_id=2 showControls=1 themePath=table_PS_560x386.jpg lang=en gameEntity=0 hash=D203BEE903]

GL to all those friends and aquaintances playing the SUNDAY MILLION 7TH ANI 2morrow..some other time for me then



Also i need some other help guys…am continuously trying to improve my blogs by posting graphics but i am having problems with how to put pictures in ..on how to make boom player hands directly visible instead of a link..would like if someone could post i link where i can find help..gl guys gg
