With 2,467 hands to go, I’m up HKD16.5k against Jay Gonzalez. So far, we’ve played a total of 5 sessions (overall 10.9 hours) of HU NLHE, alternating between 1-tabling and 2-tabling.
That gives me an average of 6.6BB/100 hands, a decent figure considering I lost HKD5k during the second session. Unfortunately, I cannot show many interesting hands (to say the least) we played because there is a problem with posting sessions on weak-tight.com.
Jay has headed to vegas to recuperate his losses. I’ll keep this blog updated when he’s back.
One hand I think I played well:
- Flop ($12, 2 players)
balla852 bets $6, Hero raises to $22, balla852 calls $16
- Turn ($56, 2 players)
balla852 bets $22, Hero calls $22
- River ($100, 2 players)
balla852 bets $45, Hero raises to $140, balla852 folds
~~~~~ And here’s the biggest pot of the challenge so far (HKD6k pot)
- Flop ($44, 2 players)
- Turn ($1,200, 2 players, 2 all-in)
- River ($1,200, 2 players, 2 all-in)
Against a normal opponent, over-shoving over a raise on that board with KK with no club would seem rather foolish, but Jay is no ordinary opponent. So I guess he had to put me on a crazy draw with ace of clubs, or perhaps a straight and a flush draw, to call my shove with 2nd pair with no redraw (against which he would be just about flipping with).
