Bloghosts are taking time Sep 26, 2004 / 11:14 AM

While setting up our new blog I encountered numerous problems with our selected provider, www.20six.de. Although having an already paid and registered account I decided to give annother one a try, www.typepad.com. So I have the second time within days to deal with custom-html, design-sets, uploads and the like. This really keept me from playing this weekend as all these really important questions like which color to choose are running thru my mind.

Anyway, after a nice dinner with Katja and my son Alex I managed to get a seat in our regular stud pot limit game friday night, although coming late (the game starts at 8pm and is usally full within a second). I was tired and with a full stomach but got a great start. Pocket queens made two pair against pocket kings which could not improve. My opponent sat two seats to my right and just called the bringin, so he tried to trap... I got lucky on the river (my stack was in the middle on 4th already).

Just  2 hours of small up's and down's were enough for me, I quitted the game a 400eur winner.

My son Alex could manage to win his first single-table 5$ tourney, well done Alex! While working on the blog I had a quick glance at one of his hands in annother SNG 5$ (where he got second place) - had had K8o and was about to call a re-raise on a AJ7T board with a flush draw open. He insisted that he will make his hand and win the pot, I explained the concept of "outs" and pot-odds annother time and after some doubting looks he finally folded. Guess what, a queen spiked on the river and A3o took the pot... we had a really big laugh on that and he keept on needling me the whole day that he would have won the tournament had he called (or was he planning to raise???)... hard to arguee with a 13-year old "poker expert".

So my weekend was rather nice, a small win, some laughs and two great diners (oh, I forgot to tell you about the great 7-course diner yesterday?). Katja -after some wine with every course- decided that she still not had enough and take me as 8th-course... wow!

Royal against quads and a first place split Sep 24, 2004 / 12:59 PM

WOW! While the tournament was on break and I talked on the phone to my 13 old son (I wanted him to join and play the million dollar guaranteed tourney at Partypokeruntil I get home) Katja got a lucky hand on the already running omaha pot limit game (yes, the field was already down to about 15).

***Well, somehow the content here is missing. I cant tell all the details again but Katja got a Jackpot with 2,000eur for her RoyalFlush, while dragging a nice pot against quad 10's. I made first place in the tourney (splitted the pricemoney with some other guy), mostly due to a great laydown of KK-6 on third street against 88-8 which I somehow managed to "smell".***

Some PLO along the way Sep 23, 2004 / 01:00 PM

Last weekend I played a tournament in Schenefeld, a local casino here in my hometown. It was 7 card stud, about 30 player, a two day event with a 500 € buy-in and 3 rebuys each 200 € worth. In the end nearly everybody took all three rebuys giving us a pricepool of about 28,500 €. I was running well well from the start on, nearly never lost a pot and ended after the second level with around 10,000 in chips (we all started with 2,000) and did not took any rebuys. Rebuys could be made until after the third.

We even got some meal, french cousine. Nobody liked that. I guess we are all more on the "get something real" side, lol.

Anyway, after day one was over we started with our cashgame. Toni asked all evening for some PLO action and this is what we got. We got a full table of pot limit stud experienced players from whom over the half never ever played a hand of omaha. Our biggest "pro" was Pete, who said in a discussion about the best starting hands that AAKK double suited not even belongs into the top 10 ("you are blocking yourself all that straight possibilities"). Our game was 500 € minimum buyin with 10/20 blinds. Go figure what a game that was. I made jokes the whole night about how many players that I know of would jump into a plane just to get a seat in this  game.

Far from any real omaha pot limit experience myself (maybe 20 hours under my belt) I sat and played with the boys. Wow, that was great! After about 10 minutes there must have been 15,000 on the table with two people in there 4th buy-in. I can't remeber how many times we say the flop 10handed (sometimes raised and reraised!) but it was a great party time. After about 5 hours the dust seatled and the game was closed with my 1,100 looser :-(

Our casinos here have strict opening times, this dy it was even extended because of the tournament.

Stay tuned what happend on day 2!
