Last night was a decent stop to a week long skid. I played a bit of 50c/$1 limit to pass some time and I made 7 or 8 bucks. Not horrible, and it almost payed for my entry fee to a private heads up event.
I played in the 3rd or 4th Big O Poker Room PokerStars private event. We had 8 players and I think I played pretty solid. In the first round, “moku” and I danced for a good while as the blinds climbed to 50/100. I ended up hitting quads and although there was no showdown I took a bunch of chips and moved onto the victory. The second round I was put up against “Qn of Hearts” I got down early but built it back up and ended up winning an all-in with KJ against AQ when I hit a K on the river. It put me in good chip state when my AK ran into QQ (fitting hand eh?). I spiked a K on the turn. This got me into the final round. The final round lasted exactly one hand. I had J6 of diamonds in the small blind and limped in. The flop gave me a gut shot straight and 4 to the flush. A single bet didn’t get me off the pot. The turn broght and offsuit 5 filling my gut shot. I made it two bets and got called. The river was a 9 of diamonds giving me the J high flush. My opponent, “brucewayne31”, went all in and after pondering a spell I called. He showed Q7 diamonds for the bigger flush.
