Anybody playing the major APL events around Australia?

I see Gold Coast have a big 150k event and Melbourne had one just recently

SA has a 75k Main Event (plus other events) in July
I played our one on the last Friday of April

Ran good early, doubled my stack, then had bottom set sucked out on by an open ender on the river about half hour after lunch, bet into 2 guys flop and turn and they weren't giving up their holdings. Lost a third of my stack that hand and was a slow 2-3 hour descent from there on. Got my last 25k in preflop with kings at 1-2k +2k level, kid who chased down his open ender called in the big blind with A9os, clean flop, turn 9, ace river...absolutely trash, same kid on an absolute heater too knocking a few others out beforehand and he rebought after playing like a donkey before lunch, called out a bluff from him earlier on too which chipped me up.

Them them breaks

10 handed table Blinds 800/1600 utg1 J8:diamonds: raise to 3200

Button and sb calls bb folds


received_3987636291272767.jpeg


BB checks I check button bets 15k SB shoved 43k

I had 44.5k and thought BB had a set of 6s and thought button had A:diamonds: but I recognized that any other flush combo was possible. I went into the tank for a bit concerned about KQ or A

Ultimately I felt that it was impossible for there to be 9 diamonds out so I called - button calls

Must be the Diamonds

13 left blinds are still 3/6 and I am bb with A7 both Diamonds

I have a stack of 50+ but want 1 more big score to feel comfortable.

There is a shark on the other table gobbling up stacks so a double up should see me good

Utg2 limps and sb calls and I call

Flop is 4:spades: 9Q:diamonds: beauty

Utg2 bets a blind telling me he has hit, sb folds and I consider a call but decide to shove.

He calls and turns over 2 cards of which I can see one Q (couldn't see the other one)

Turn is 5:diamonds: and I pat myself on the back.

River is 4:diamonds: and everyone at the table goes off. I already had it so not sure why

Until someone reveals his hidden (to me) card is the 4:clubs:

Sigh

Friday night splashing down to 16k look down at pocket 7s utg raises 2k I call plus 2 others (blinds)

Flop 794 -sb/BB checks raiser bets 6.5k I shove. Fold fold utg calls and shows QQ - face drops when I turn over my 777

Turn is Q

River is a 4 - his Qs are good and I am watching football typing this

Playing the Main Event at the APL casino event blinds are 1/2 with 2k ante - I am button - my stack is 70kish and I have fought my way back from 31k an hour earlier and we are heading towards bagging up (maybe 1 hour away)

I look down at A :spades: 5:clubs: - ehh see what happens

Middle position raises to 7k - I call and the blinds fold

Flop 3, 5 and 10 - all spades . - Nice lets see how this - oh she has bet 50k. I didnt think she had the flush and anyway I only need another spade to have the nuts - plus I have the 5 and maybe she doesnt have an A

I shove my 70k and she calls - turns over pocket 7s - good I didnt think she had much and I am happy with the shove even if behind.

An A or a 5 or any of the remaining 9 spades and I am good for a possible final day appearance

Yeah nah - 3 club and K heart and I am out

Serves you right for dealing her a river 2-outer to knock me out for the first time! ;)
(TBF it was a flip when we got it in pre flop, just brutal the way it ran out.)

Dealt this bad beat

Player to the left of me has an image as a tight player waiting for premium hands or someone willing to fold when the cards dont hit

Player in middle position bets 3x and most fold until the SB who looks down at under half stack and shoves the small blind - folds to the original raiser who calls

SB turns over AK suited and MP shows 99

Flop has the A

Turn is a brick for both

The river is a 9

Brutal

My second bust out was worse than that first one.

Blinds 800/1600 with 1600 BB ante. Last hand before break.

2 limps to me in SB and I have AKo with 52k stack. I really didn't want to burn a bunch of chips raising pre then a continuation bet when I likely miss the flop so I just jam. I'm hoping someone will think I'm just making a move as people often do on last hands.

BB who has been super aggressive and has ~200k tanks and calls. Limpers fold.

BB has A4o (WTF??)

Flop A T 6
Turn 4
River J

gg, nh.

I would've come back from break with over 50bb and and above average stack for the first time all night.

Karma wasnt from this hand - it was from this one

Blinds are 6/1200 1200 ante I look down at AK in the small blind

Short stack shoves and folds to me and I shove leaving us heads up

He turns over Q10o

Flop has the Q

Turn is the 10 and I groan until someone says 'just need the J'

Yep Jack hits and I get a healthy stack

Poker giveth and it taketh away

It Giveth

My day at home ended up being over before I expected so I made the drive into the city and into the casino expecting to watch and realised the 3rd flight was still on rego

Buy in and get my 50k stack (actually 2 x 25k chips) - get straight in the hand and look at JQclubs -

Blinds are 8/1600/1600 and I am utg2 - I limp (wanting to look at table dynamics) and everyone else limps - ok

Flop is K :clubs: 7:clubs: 5spade - SB checks , BB bets 5k - I call as does SB and the rest get out of the way

I felt the King was important as it meant the Ax was the only cards beating me if the flush hit

And it does on the turn with the 3:clubs: - SB checks BB bets 10k I call SB folds

River is a J:diamonds:

BB bets 15k and I call - I was concerned at the Ax but he turned over pocket KK - o_O

He limped and didnt shove the flop or bet harder and got his pants pulled down

He started a general convo saying '' I dont know the guy he could be doing anything I never seen him so I went slow''

He then asked if I would have called if he shoved - my mouth said ' yeah mate I had 2 cards to hit 35% blah blah' and my brain is screaming 'of course I would have folded my first hand - I wanted to make final day '

It Taketh Away

After bagging up for final day I moved over to the Teams event and kept on getting the chips back my partner lost - blinds are 3/6k and down to the last 2 tables and I am BB (58k?) with 29:diamonds: - it limps around to me so I aint folding them

Flop is K2:clubs: 9:spades: - 2 pair you beauty here we go

SB checks I check UTG bets 16k - SB calls the 16k and I shove my last 52k - UTG jams his big stack over the top and SB gets out

UTG shows KJ - and is stunned to see my 2 pair

Turn doesnt help him

River - the river is a J to give him the 2 pair and we finish 13/14th?

Been a while

1st hand of the night - A:diamonds: 4:spades: - Dealer button - 1 behind dealer raises to 250 (blinds 25/50) - I call as do SB/BB

Flop TQK:diamonds::diamonds::diamonds: - High Jack bets 1k - I call fold fold heads up

Turn is the 5:clubs: HJ bets 1k call

River is so beautiful

J :diamonds: and GC gets his 2nd RF of the year - HJ bets 1k - I think about how much value I can get and decide its really only going to be a min raise - 2k - HJ grumbles but calls and shows his Trip Qs

Poor bastard

Last 2 tables and I have 33k and BB with 3/6 blinds with 89 off

UTG flats , LJ flats HJ flats SB folds and I call

Flop is 858 - UTG bets 6k - LJ raises to 12k HJ folds and I have to decide what to do. Can I slow play these? Does one of them have 55?

I shove - UTG thinks about it and calls my bet - LJ tanks for 2 minutes and goes all in for an extra 3k and UTG calls that

UTG - AA
LJ - 67off
BB Trip 8s

LJ doesnt want a 9 as that boats me.

Turn is a 4 ffs and a 7 on the River sees me out
