    I final table bubble in the 00:30, with fate teasing me mercilessly with my exit hand...

    7th place was still a cash, however, meaning a break even session.

    I will do an update as soon as I get he time (little to report poker-wise, think I've played only one tournament since last update).

    Just wanted to say that I will likely be tackling the Min(efield) UKOPS this week.
  • mushroom1mushroom1 Member Posts: 645
    I know I defend too much in the BB and I know I should not call on a paired board.

    But, the river is far too harsh a sentence for those crimes.

    Punished in no uncertain terms for questionable play.

    What a turn, what a river. ;)
  • mushroom1mushroom1 Member Posts: 645
    And we are out of UKOPS #1.

    I think this shove is fine, here? I think it's going in no matter how the betting went...

    Think with your stack it has to go in.
  • mushroom1mushroom1 Member Posts: 645
    Ironically, a few hands later I exited after another AQ vs KJ coup.

    This time I had the best hand. Temporarily.

    Out of UKOPS #2, after failing to recover from my opponents Calsberg river three posts back.
  • mushroom1mushroom1 Member Posts: 645
    I am playing the Marksman alongside the Mini UKOPS, where I have lost 40% of my stack.

    I tried a ridiculous bluff, the kind of nonsense I used to pull when I was 25. The kind of move that didn't work then and don't work now. It made no sense. It was just nonsensical aggression.

    I found some grey hairs yesterday and I believe that, subconsciously, I wanted to feel like a young idiot again.

    Amazed to see an AIP that I win, they are a rare animal at the moment.

    I had 13bb so I think it plays itself, unlucky.
  • mushroom1mushroom1 Member Posts: 645
    UKOPS
    #1 - Blank and no bounties.
    #2 - Blank and no bounties, granted this wasn't a Bounty Hunter, but still.
    Marksman - Blank and no bounties.
    #3 - TBC
    #4 - Blank and no bounties.

    Struggling on in the #3 (Mini) but, good grief, it's been an almighty slog. One small bounty and yet to hit 30k with regards to stack size.

    Currently 51/59 with 15-bigs.
  • mushroom1mushroom1 Member Posts: 645
    Ended up 15th in the Mini.

    Got it in first and (slightly) in front. Sadly, a member of Team Golden called and the 45% hosed up. :p

    Folded round the button where I held pocket fours and 20-bigs. I shoved and Arrogant rightly called in the BB with AQ.

    I do like the Mini, these days. Though no real profit this time, due to only claiming one bounty and having two rebuys.
  • mushroom1mushroom1 Member Posts: 645
    UKOPS #5 - Blank
    UKOPS #6 - Blank
    UKOPS #7 - Blank
    UKOPS #8 - TBD but I will probably win this.

    Thought I would attempt a DYM streak. Currently 0/1 after finishing 6th in a £2.20 affair.

    I shoved 10-bigs with 99 and was called by a 14-big stack, holding A4.

    Ping! Immediate service with an Ace-high flop.

    When I saw the call I initially thought I must have mistakenly NOT entered a Double or Nothing. Perhaps I was in a Turbo Heads-up?

    Nope, turns out I was definitely in a DYM.

    Clearly I am doing it all wrong.

  • mushroom1mushroom1 Member Posts: 645
    Perhaps I would be more 'streaky' at the £3.30 level?

    Perhaps not. I lasted just two hands.

    I raised with QQ and was bet into by the sole caller on a T88 (two spades) flop. We are too shallow for this not to go all-in. I was up against K8.

    Still in UKOPS #8, though I am in for £12.30 already after marrying AJ on a AK6 board. I was up against K6.

    I must've been Genghis Khan in a previous life.
  • mushroom1mushroom1 Member Posts: 645
    A clean sweep of blanks in the UKOPS tonight.

    With 99 left and low on chips and pick up Tens in the big blind. Action folds around to the button who raises, I obviously shove. Button had Ace-King, which received immediate services.

    I think I've won just ONE bounty from eight Mini UKOPS so far.

    I played a £500 BH and failed to cash in that also. Lost a race when low on chips. I flopped an Ace with Ace-Jack - that is no good against trips, though.

    Failing to get the rub of the green when AIP in the second half of tournaments - which has been the case for six weeks or so, not sure if I have mentioned it? :p

  • mushroom1mushroom1 Member Posts: 645
    I sit down for a little spin-up. Sunk by a two-out on the river when in my first hand (all-in).

    I spun on my heels and left.

    I am in the 22:45 £400 BH, where, after holding the chip lead with 29 left, I am in the process of blowing up.
