Been lazy

Hi friends

I have been a bit lazy lately in both writing and playing.

Last friday my computor broke down so I spent the weekend enjoying the nightlife in Stockholm. The nightlife in Stockholm is fab, with lots of interesting clubs and I'm sure that we have the worlds most beautiful girls here. Lucky us!

My computer is now back on track again but I will not be able to play anything this week due to some stressful projects at work.

I will play a live tournament (approx $80 buy-in) on friday and hopefully there will be some interesting situations that I can write about.

Regards

A terrible night...

Ladies and gentlemen,

Have had a bad night...

Played four tourneys tonight:
1 MMT (£1o.000 guaranteed) buy-in £25
1 SNG £ 20
1 SNG $ 20
1 SNG $ 10

In the MMT I went out after 10 min, my AA didnt hold up against 66. All in pre flop, the enemy flopped a 6 and I had to lift my hat and say good bye.

In the SNG $ 10 I ran into boat with three of a kind

I won the SNG $ 20 and got $ 90

In the £ 20 I went out as number four

Bank roll 1983, tonights result -$41

In the £ 20 I was doing all right, but with four players left this happened:


------HAND 5------
Game #1410384883: Hold'em NL (50/100) - 2005/11/24 - 19:05:38 (ET)
Table "SixPak10 1440738 - 1" Seat 2 is the button.
Seat 1: Sherrif67 (1330.50 in chips)
Seat 2: Sommelier (1098.50 in chips)
Seat 3: Zoomer22 (1893 in chips)
Seat 5: Snabben73 (1678 in chips)
Zoomer22: posts small blind 50
Snabben73: posts big blind 100
----- HOLE CARDS -----
dealt to Snabben73 [Jc Ks]
Sherrif67: folds
Sommelier: calls 100
Zoomer22: calls 50
Snabben73: checks
----- FLOP ----- [Jh 8s 9s] (flop gives me top pair with K kicker)
Zoomer22: checks
Snabben73: bets 300 (Bet quite big because the enemy was calling and raising with everything)
Sommelier: folds
Zoomer22: raises to 600 (this is crucial, normally its a fold, but the guy played strange)
Snabben73: calls 300 (decided to call after thinking a long time)
----- TURN ----- [Jh 8s 9s][Jd]
Zoomer22: bets 600
Snabben73: raises to 978 and is all-in (here comes the misstake)
Zoomer22: calls 378
----- RIVER ----- [Jh 8s 9s Jd][5s]
----- SHOW DOWN -----
Snabben73: shows [Jc Ks] (Three of a kind, Jacks, King high)
Zoomer22: shows [Qd Th] (A Straight, Queen high)
Zoomer22 collected 3456 from Main pot
----- SUMMARY -----
Total pot 3456 Main pot 3456 Rake 0
Board [Jh 8s 9s Jd 5s]
Seat 1: Sherrif67 folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 2: Sommelier (button) folded on the Flop
Seat 3: Zoomer22 (small blind) showed [Qd Th] and won (3456) with A Straight, Queen high
Seat 5: Snabben73 (big blind) lost

What could he possibly have after the turn?

-He didnt raise pre flop so pp is unlikely, because he always raised strong hands before the flop.
- 89 NO, needs no explanation
-AJ, not a possible hand since he would have raised that hand pre flop
-J with lower kicker than me, not very likely since he re-raise my strong raise after the flop so much that he almost was pot commited
-Full house, probably the hand I would put him on after thinking a while
- Straight, also likely, since he didnt raise pre flop he must have something after the flop. He caught the straight on the flop which is alot of luck, but I dont think he would risk his chips re-raising on a draw (there was a flush draw as well) after my strong bet after the flop.

To sum up, the only possible hand that I was winning against was a pure bluff (or maybe j low kicker) and how likely is it that the chip leader risks almost all his chips when I showed the strenths that I did? And why did I risk all my chips towards the chip leader when I was second? A great rule is to stay alive....

What do you think, am I completly wrong?

Need to get back to the books...

Tomorrow is another day and I aint giving up!

My first night...

...As a Pokercasinoguide-player is finished. I played two tournaments, one $20 SNG (six handed) which I won and got $90 for the trouble...And one £20 MTT (49 players) where I finished as number six when only five players was paid. The result of the first night session is +$24 which gives me a bank roll of $ 2024.

In the SNG I got loads of great hands and I had 90% of the chips when I started to play heads-up. In the MTT the dealer was in a very bad mode, so I was happy to reach the final table even though its boring to be outdrawn just before the money...All in all I think that I played good even though I could have tried to steal more blinds in the MTT.

Here we have a quite interesting hand from the beginning of the SNG:

-----HAND 5------
Game #1399829973: Hold'em NL (7/15) - 2005/11/23 - 15:23:46 (ET)
Table "SixPak20 1434405 - 1" Seat 4 is the button.
Seat 1: Fat-boy (805 in chips)
Seat 2: LE82 (895 in chips)
Seat 3: Aljo0146 (865 in chips)
Seat 4: paige (68 in chips)
Seat 5: cinquino (2382 in chips)
Seat 6: Snabben73 (985 in chips)
cinquino: posts small blind 7
Snabben73: posts big blind 15
----- HOLE CARDS -----
dealt to Snabben73 [Td 9d]
Fat-boy: folds
LE82: folds
Aljo0146: calls 15
paige: raises to 68 and is all-in
cinquino: calls 61
Snabben73: calls 53
Aljo0146: calls 53
----- FLOP ----- [Tc 4h Qd]
cinquino: checks
Snabben73: bets 120 (information bet, wanted to see if anyone hit the Q)
Aljo0146: folds
cinquino: calls 120 (Only player calling)
----- TURN ----- [Tc 4h Qd][Ah]
cinquino: checks
Snabben73: bets 150 (This is quite bad, think that I should bet more or check-fold)
cinquino: calls 150 (was expecting a re-raise or maybe fold, but not a call)
----- RIVER ----- [Tc 4h Qd Ah][2c]
cinquino: checks
Snabben73: checks (had no hand to put him on, so I played safe and checked)
----- SHOW DOWN -----
cinquino: shows [8c Jh] (High Card Ace) (He was chasing a four out straight, not very clever)
Snabben73: shows [Td 9d] (A Pair of Tens, Ace high)
paige: shows [Qc Jc] (A Pair of Queens, Ace high)
Snabben73 collected 540 from Side pot #1
paige collected 272 from Main pot
----- SUMMARY -----
Total pot 812 Main pot 272 Side pot #1 540 Rake 0
Board [Tc 4h Qd Ah 2c]
Seat 1: Fat-boy folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 2: LE82 folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 3: Aljo0146 folded on the Flop
Seat 4: paige (button) showed [Qc Jc] and won (272) with A Pair of Queens, Ace high
Seat 5: cinquino (small blind) lost
Seat 6: Snabben73 (big blind) showed [Td 9d] and won (540) with A Pair of Tens, Ace high

I think that I played this hand bad because of the weak bet on the turn. After the flop I put him on the Q because of his call on my bet. If he put me on A after the turn, but wasnt sure he should have reraised to get information, but he just called. That call indicated monster hand to me so if he would have bet after the river I would have folded....

Comments please...

Snabben73's way to the top

Hi fellas,

My pokernick is Snabben73 and I'm a 32 year old financial analyst from Stockholm. I´ve been asked to write about my pokerplaying here at Pokercasinoguide. I've been playing cards since I started walking and poker more seriously since 2001. I play Texas Holdem NL, both cash and tournaments, on the internet and live but here I will mainly write about Texas Holdem NL, SNG and MTT played on the internet.

Since the beginning of 2005 I call myself semi-pro, meaning that I still have a job, but playing/reading/studying poker takes up most of my spare time and poker playing has been a significant income source to me for one and a half years. I use different strategies when playing SNG and MTT. I tend to play much more agressively when playing SNG's and maybe it's because of that I'm much more successful in SNG's than in MTT's? I've read and been told to play more agressively in MTT's than in SNG's, but everytime I try I lose...

The main reason for me writing here is to develop my game. I like to analyse my game and sometimes I think about and analyse a hand over and over again, thinking about what I could have done differently, what the opponent was thinking, was my raise signaling what I wanted etc. etc. I hope that you players out there can help me to develop my game and hopefully you too will learn something on the way.

I will start with a $ 2000 bank roll at www.interpoker.com and play tourneys (SNG and MTT) with maximum buy-in of $50. I will continuously move money to different sites to get bonuses. It would be fun if you popped by to say hi if you see me at the tables.

I will post interesting hands and it would be fantastic if you players out there could come up with comments, critisism, strategies or whatever.

Stay cool, play pool.

Yours,

Snabben73
