This journey started friday night when i went to nuno´s house to play some poker.
it was fun like hell but the shit hit the fan... it was 7:30am and we should go to la toja @ 1:00pm.
i went home and sleep around 4hours or so. bath and shit and went to velasques ( meeting point ). I arrived @ 1:01 and call nuno to ask him where he was.
ME: hi nuno! where are you?
nuno: bah... sorry mate... i´m waking up
ME: ???!!!!??? joking right?
nuno:i will be there in a second. cya
well he arrived not in a second but in 1 hour.
and we went with his cousin and other mate of nuno.
we stoped in a gas station ( sto tirso ) to wait for other portuguese guys. TonyL, Acacio, josé and Filipa.
finally we arrived @ la toja. 1 hour before the check in.
so i decided to play a 50$ sit and go ( 6 players ) in the hotel.
1 folded 16 times in a roll
and 1 payer out
i was in the button and i got QQ
the utg raised 150
and i re-raised 425
the BB called
and the guy utg also called
flop Js 7h 3d
the BB check
utg bet half pot
and i went all in
BB called my all in ( going all in too )
and utg called too ( having 220 chips behind )
they both showed their hands
and i could not belive my eyes
BB had Jd Ks
utg had Jh Th
omg 2 donks
i looked @ nuno
nuno looked @ me
and we started laughting
someting went to my head ( i thought that could be a warning. and it was )but i didn´t said nothing to nuno.
yeah i shared the room with him ( sick bastard because of him i can´t put the videos right now here - i can´t tell why - OLOLOL )
we went to la toja casino
the tournment started
1st nuno was on it
2nd i knew other guy there "golfinho" a very good spanish player
3rd i knew 1 more guy - a MANIAK
the others i didn´t knew
well easily i get to 7k
with nothing special
stealing chips and shit
my best hand was KK but no one payed my raise
after 30 min i had a really good read on the table
but i was wrong
with 7k and AhJs in the buton i raised to 300 ( blinds 50-100 ) because no one limped in
the SB folded
but the BB re-raised me to 800.
MY 1ST MISTAKE
I KNEW HE WAS A TIGHT PLAYER
SO I PUT HIM WITH BETTER AND THAN ME
BUT I DECIDED TO GO FISHING
( WRONG - IN THIS EARLY STAGE I SHOULD FOLD )
FLOP Jh Xd Xh
nice flop - top pair top kicker
and i raise it to 1k
and the BB re-raise me to 2,5k
I HAS SURE HE WAS WITH AA, KK OR QQ
BUT SINCE HE HAD ALMOST MY SACK I THOUGH I WILL CALL HIS RAISE
AND IF THE HEART IT THE TURN I WILL GO ALL IN IF HE CHECKS
SO I CALLED
HE WAS A GOOD PLAYER I KNEW HE WOULD RESPECT ME IF THE HEART HIT THE TURN
i went ALL in
decided to call and said
ok show me the flush
"man if you thought i had flush why did you call me?"
he said because i could be wrong
well he had QdQs
i was behind but i still had outs
hearts, Aces and jacks
but the river was not my friend
well i played bad because i could fold pre-flop
but after my call to his raise. i think i made all the right moves. my only mistake was thinking that the spanish guy was a good player. he couldn´t leave a good hand even when he thinks he was behind and with any chance of winning.
i was donw to 0,8k
and wait till i had one hand i could double/triple up
i had the hand but i didn´t had the luck
and i was rebuying
by that time i thought in joão nunes aka jomané
when same thing happend to him and he finish the tournment in 2nd.
but i hadn´t the same luck
well i was donw to 2,8k losing some pots with no luck in the flop.
then i double up with As 5s and got nutts in the flop
the other guy went all in and i instant call
then i started to play my game
and steal blinds over and over again
i went to dinner with 9k
i didn´t get to stay in the table mutch longer
everyone folded till SB that raised my BB to 900
i called because i got 8x8s
the other guy - a very tight/passive - bet 2k
3 things could mean this bet
a- he could have AK AQ and need to bet to kick me out
b- big pocketpair ( QQ KK AA ) because if was lower he only would limp but since he was SB i open the range to 99 - TT - JJ - ... - AA
c- or he could have 2 spades
since he had only more 0,5k than me
i decided to push all in
well he mad a great call with TT
no 7 or 8 to help me
and i was out.
now the photos
omg this before dinner
