4th At The Hoy

Another Final Table Run at the Hoy. This would be three FTs in my last four tries at the MATH.

Early, I would see with this action in front, and a pretty good starting hand. I was planning on calling the shorty, but figured I was behind with the reraise.

I would have rivered the straight, but the preflop fold was correct. Later on I would play this hand below. Not very proud of it, but I am much more willing to go to war with an overpair in an MTT vs. a cash game. Stack sizes played into it as well, as I would have some chips left if I was behind.

Figured there was a good chance I was ahead, would have 6 outs if I was not, and would be getting decent odds on a push. Wippy being a little short help cinch the decision.

After this, I would get QQ all-in preflop vs. JJ and win. Get KK all-in preflop vs QQ and win, and call one of nomeys pushes from the SB with AQo and double through. At the second break this is where I was at.

I would make it to the final table as a shorty, but was playing the shortstack pretty well. I was ahead every time I put it in preflop (except the hand I knocked Bayne out with where I had two live cards). My hands were holding up as well which is a nice touch. I doubled through a few more times when my jams were called by K high hands, and my Ax or AK was good. At the third break we were 4-handed, and ITM. I was second in chips (barely), and the chip leader had a little more than 2x my chips. I went out on the hand below:

Can't put him on AA-QQ with that raise. Given this and frequency of these types of moves at this table the range is pretty wide. It is a +EV call.

Blinders raises to 19,690, and is all in

Was sure I'd caught Mr. Weak/Tight making a move only to see you suck out as a 3:5 dog.

Congrats on Cash

Good call/read. Didn't like seeing the 99, was just trying to pick up the blinds. Next time.

Not sure if you know but, FTP constantly shuffles the deck and all actions change the board. If you played the AQs, the board wouldn't haven't been the same.
