LAPC: $350 Triple Stud Stack Updates

January 22, 2019

Gonna focus on Stack Updates here only and not posting hands constantly.

Same structure as yesterday. Triple Stud rotates every eight hands between Stud, Stud 8 or Better, and Razz

No Radio Mike or Frankenstein today. Same notables as yesterday.

First Break: 14.5k

We are coming back to 300/600 betting limits. Razz went horribly for me. I started with a couple monsters and got super rough runouts. Fortunately I just sucked out in Stud 8 in a pretty gross spot when I backdoored deuces full against someone I think made three jacks on 4th street.

Second Break: 13.6k

Betting limits will be 600/1200 when play resumes. I won a big Stud 8 pot early on during this last stretch and that’s about it. I still haven’t won a Razz hand in this tournament. I’m getting some good starting hands but my runouts have been way below average.

In other news, EDGAR MARTINEZ IS A HALL OF FAMER! So awesome! I actually got a little teary-eyed watching it be announced. It’s pretty silly he had to spend a decade on the ballot waiting to get in when he’s quite clearly one of the 50 or so best hitters to ever live. Congrats to Edgar! Second Mariner ever elected!

Third Break: 26.7k

Betting limits are 1200/2400 after the break. Finally had a spurt of positive momentum and won my first Razz hand!

This tournament got 125 runners – down from the 186 that showed up for Omaha 8 yesterday.

77 players remain and 16 of us will cash. There is $9500 up top for first place.

Average stack is 20.2k so I’m in much better shape than I was at this point yesterday.

BUSTED

It was a solid drip since the last break but the hand that broke me is in Razz. Dude limps with a 9 up and I raise with 72-5. He makes an open pair and I still can’t beat his fucking hand.

On 5th street…

Me: 72-5J5

Him: xx-944

I should just fold right there. I think I only called because it made me sick to let him win with a 9 and a pair on his board. It can’t be strategically sound to continue here. This is pure emotionally driven spewage.

On 6th street, I catch an ace (heeeeey!) and he picks up a ten. So he now has four upcards and only one of them is a good one. I call again.

I pair the 7 on 7th and then I make another dumb, emotionally driven mistake by betting the river when he checks to me.

Here’s something that’s never going to happen: guys that limp in and call raises with 9s up in Razz are not folding on 7th street in big pots. You are going to have to show them the best hand. I couldn’t do that and I think I lost three big bets here I shouldn’t have.

Two hands later, he limps in again and I get 3-way action on my last 2200 starting with A3-4 in Razz.

He bets the other player out on 6th and I have a made 87 against a 98 with one card to go. He improves to an 86 and I brick and that’s that.

GG.

Pretty steamed up right now. Nothing upsets me more than making dumb mistakes.

I will definitely play some cash games tonight as I will be playing on LIVE AT THE BIKE tomorrow and I don’t plan to be there until around 2 PM and the show doesn’t start airing until 6 PM. I will post details on how to watch tomorrow.

I’m not going to blog my cash game session tonight.
