I pwn Last Donk Standing

Last night was probably the most entertaining poker night I've ever had. Of course it doesn't hurt that last night was one of my most profitable poker days ever.

  • BuddyDank/MiamiDon Radio
  • +$300 in the 100NL 6 max tables (Up to $550 at one point)
  • 3rd place in the Mookie for +$105
  • 1st place in a $50 SNG for +$170
  • Two wins in "Last Donk Standing" 50 FPP all-in prop bets for +$280 or so

  • That adds up to $855.

    The Mookie: 13th hand in I got involved in a hand with Iakaris with my AA. I 3-bet pre-flop and he called. Flop was 7 high and he called my c-bet. Turn was a blank and he folded to my 2/3 pot bet. That got me up to about 4000 in chips or so. I played tight and didn't get involved in too many hands until the 40/80 level. I get dealt KK in the Big Blind, and there is a raise and 3 callers! So I squeeze and get it all-in with a shorter stack who has QJs. Lost that one to a flush on the turn. Then i was a short stack for the next couple levels and it went fold fold fold for me. Finally at the 100/200 level and got a hand I felt I could push with, as my M was only 5. A7o. Too bad jmathewson_III had AQ. But the 7 on the turn kept me alive!

    Then I went on a stealing rampage. I stole stole stole, and got called a few times, but they always folded to my c-bets. At the 250/500 level, I had built my stack up to 10,000 in chips. I knocked off a short stack while I was in the blinds with T8s vs his KJo. That got me up to 14,000, which was a top 5 stack at the time. Continued to steal and was up to 20,000 when it got down to 2 tables. Then my stack started to dwindle all the way back down to 12,000 during the final table (and money) bubble. I was able to double up against Rakefeeder with AA vs 99 and then the bubble burst and I was at the final table sitting in 4th place. Things went pretty fast, and people were getting knocked quickly. I ended up busting ElSnarfGrande in 6th place with AQ vs his A9.

    I was finally knocked out in 3rd place when my A7s ran into bdidde's KK. I was in the SB, and DonkeyPuncher74 raised from the button for about the billionth time, and I decided to take a stand with my A7s. Unfortunately bdidde woke up with KK in the BB. I flopped a flush draw, turned my bottom pair, but missed one of my 13 outs on the river.

    That topped off a very fun Mookie tournament. And for the first time, I listened to the BuddyDank Radio crew. They had MiamiDon, Chad, ScottyMc, Hoyazo and BuddyDank on air commentating about the tournament. They were very entertaining. When the tournie started to wind down, and all of them had busted out, they decided to do some last longer all-in contests in the 50 FPP satellite tournaments. Everyone would pitch in $11, and we would all push in on every single hand. The person who lasted the longest won the pot. We did this 4 times. I won the first two, pocketing an easy $300 or so. the 3rd one we all busted out on the first hand, and the last one, fuel55 won.

    That's not even all of the e-mails!!

    Here are the hand histories for the two that I won.

    I have to post the last one, because I damn near won that hand too. I hit top pair with my Ace, and Fuel flops bottom pair and a gutshot. The gutshot hit the turn, and he hit one of his 9 outs. So close!!!

    ********************************

    I also played a $50+5 SNG and the $24+2 28k guaranteed while I played in the Mookie. I'm not much of a SNG player, but every once in a while I like to play them. And since I had been running really good at the cash games, I decided to play a $50 one. I ended up taking that thing down, so that was a nice $170 profit.

    I played really tight in the 28k, but hit a few hands to stay above the starting 3000 stack. Then a mega-donk came to our table. He played at least half of his hands. I won a nice sized pot off of him right away with pocket QQ on a AQ8 flop. Then later on, he doubled up off of me with A3 vs another QQ for me. Then he accumulated a huge stack some how. He doubled me up when I 3-bet him PF with AA after his min-raise. He pushed with QTo and I won a nice pot. That got me back up to an average stack. A couple orbits later, he raised again, and I pushed with AK and an M of 10. I knew he would call with any high cards, and he did just that with AJ. Too bad the river was a J, and I bust out. If I win that hand, I am in the top 40 with about 400 people left. Oh well.

    ********************************

    The cash games went really well yesterday too. At one point, I was up $550 at the 100NL tables. But towards the end of the night, that dwindled down to $300. I probably shouldn't have been playing so many tables with the Mookie and FPP last longer bets going on.

    A couple of those hands:


  • I 3-bet a 45/16 donk with TT. Flop is 89J rainbow. I check-raise all-in and he has QQ. Not the hand I wanted him to have.

  • I raise a limper with J9s. Flop us QJ9 with two clubs. He leads into me, and I get passive and just call. I call his small turn bet. River is a Q and I call his his small bet. He has KQ. I really thought he was on some kind of draw ( I should have raised that flop anyways if that was my read.)

  • I raise with 54s and flop a flush. Other dude has a set and we get it all in, but the board pairs and I lose.

  • AA vs K9 all-in on a 9 high flop. King on the river. Doh!

  • Since this post is so long already, I'll skip the Sweet-n-Sour hands.

    Cheers!

    Hey,

    I saw your post on another blog and figured I’d check yours out and give you a headsup about a WPT giveaway I’m running this year.

    A lot of players want to participate in a 10K buyin event, but most lack the skills or experience, so if I gave that way it would be like giving away a lottery ticket. Unless they got very lucky they probably wouldn’t do much with it.

    So I tried to come up with something that I felt would be a much better prize for the majority of poker players. I’m giving away a WPT Battle For The Season Pass III package this year on my site.

    You can win a weeklong vacation in the Bahamas, training from the pros (over 20 in attendance last year) and entry into up to three tournaments while you’re down there. One of the tournaments is a 3-day deep-stacked event with a number of WPT, cash and boot camp prizes. The grand prize is a $100,000 WPT Season Pass plus $10K in cash for expenses.

    You can use the WPT Season Pass to enter any World Poker Tour events you want (ten 10K events, a mix of 5K, 15K, etc)

    The first free satellite is being held on Full Tilt Poker Sunday, February 10th, 2008 at 14:00 (2pm EST)

    Right now there's only 34 players signed up, the top 4 advance to a single-table semi-final in February. The fields aren't going to get any smaller as word of this promotion spreads. So if you want in, you'll want to play some of the earlier events to have less competition.

    Hope the tables & life are treating you well, and I hope you’ll take a shot at winning this prize!
