BBT Points/Event Standings
For those who did not notice my streak of 10 straight BBT events in the points ended last night in the MATH. I went out with AQo, everyones favorite to-the-rail hand in MTTs. I think I played the hand ok, but I thought hard about folding it three different times during the hand. I did not save the history, but I will summarize below.
Blinds at 25/50, and Mike Maloney raises up 3x. I have AQo and position on the raiser. I thought about folding, but I think you need to make the call and take a flop in position with AQ0. The stacks are pretty deep, so there are some nice implied odds if I hit the flop pretty big. I think at least one other called as well. Flop comes Ace high, all hearts and I have no heart. Mike leads out for 1/2 pot. Very dangerous flop, but a good chance I am ahead with an exposed hand. The size of the bet made me think that he did not have a hand that was already ahead of me. If he has AK, two pair or a set, I think he bets more to protect the lead. I see this as a c-bet with air/weak flush draw, or he is on a good draw. I also think that If he is on the draw, it will be hard to push him off it, since he had me nicely covered. I thought about just letting the hand go right there, because I was so exposed to another heart coming, but decided to min. raise back to get some info. I figured this would push him off air or a weak flush draw, and if he just calls it I can reevaluate after the turn comes. He min. raised me back. So it is push or fold time at this point as the pot is getting too big relative to my stack. I still am reading him for a draw here, and think that I am ahead based on this. If I am ahead, I have easy pot odds to call. I am behind a flopped flush (not likely), AK, a set or two pair. Again, I don't think the betting pattern indicates AK, set or two pair. I really wish you had more time to think online because this was a tough one. I decide to Jam, and Mike tanks, making me convinced it was the correct play. He eventually calls, and flips up AxQh for the tie, but a freeroll to the flush for him. Turn and river were both hearts, and IGHN. Jam may have still been correct if I knew what he had, based on pot odds at the time. Oh well.
Going to skip the mookie this week as it is home game night on Wednesday. Hopefully, I can get a run going again soon.
