Outplayed!

Last night I played the £10 rebuy at Margate, 60 runners, made for a healthy £2780 prize pool, and £1000 first prize. Ended the rebuy period on just under 12k (was in for £60) and I always say that if I finish the rebuys on 10k or over I should make the final table. Last night was no exception, even though I was card dead all I needed to do was maintain that 12k stack until the number of tables decreases and we get short handed.
Final two tables short handed I made all my chips to take to the final, went on with 42k (average 30k). However blinds were huge, 3k/6k to start with, but I had good position on the table with two tight women on my left. All was setup for a big finish!
Unfortunately, the women were absolute card racks on the final, even though I never got a chance to steal their blinds as muppets kept limping off half their stacks making it impossible for me to do anything without hands.
7 handed one of the women limped UTG (so I was big blind) and it folded to me. Blinds 4k/8k, she has 30k total, I have just over 40k total. I look down at AJos and make a TERRIBLE move, pushed her allin. I just didn't think about it, saw my second biggest hand of the night and got excited :-( This is such a bad play because I know her range here, I've played with her so much in the past - she has AK/AQ or 88-JJ. The optimal play against these hands, if I want to win the pot, is check my option and shove the flop. But, I made a mistake, and it cost me the tournament, I ended up sticking around for another orbit in which 3 players got knocked out by the other woman (no clue at all, seriously, the sort of player who will never make another final table), she was a total card rack, picked up AK, AQ, JJ, QQ in a row. Sick! Came 4th for £250 when I shoved allin UTG blind, for 20k, blinds 4k/8k but I definitely had fold equity as the two players in the blinds were retarded. Big blind has AQ tho, and I have... Q6 ugh - why domination?!
Didnt play anything online when I got back cos I was a little steamed. Today I realised that the WCOOP starts on Sunday, and continues for the next two weeks. I want to play some of the events, so I need to play a load of satellites and grind out some W$. I bought W$530 off some random on pokerstars for $450, and played a load of $13 double shootouts, a $58 freeze, a $22 turbo rebuy (all into WCOOP event #2, $530 NLHE). Got nowhere in the double shoots, KK v AA in the freeze, and the $22 rebuy I busted in 18th (12 seats) when some mug called my push with KQ when he had no need to risk half his stack. Obv I had Q8. Also played a $25 standard rebuy into EPT dublin $475 satellite, got chips in the rebuy period, and never left the top 5 in chips until I had a seat. Deregistered and taken the W$. I plan on getting as many W$ as I can this week, then playing as many WCOOP events as I can. Ones which look tempting are Event #2 - $530 NLHE (1.5 mill gtd), Event #4 - $215 Headsup NLHE (300k gtd), Event #6 - $215 NLHE w/rebuys (1 mill gtd), and Event #10 - $1050 NLHE (1 mill gtd). The main event I couldn't play even if I satellited into it I don't think - the $2600 buyin is just too far out of my roll, I'd have to sell the W$ on. So, 796 W$ and counting.
Had a break for a couple hours, and then put in 1,228 hands of $200NL, for a magnificent $8 profit, lol. Seriously, wtf is going on?? I had AA v AA twice in one session! Also I got outplayed in the following pot. Prior to this hand we had played a few pots against each other which I had been on the better side of - including one hand where I called a reraise on the turn with 77 with a couple of overs out there when I knew he'd just caught a flush draw - unfortunately he didn't bet when he missed the end.

Marjorie1947 bets [$20]. (Shud have bet more here, wanted him to come OTT of me)
Mockinbrd calls [$20].
** Dealing Turn ** [ Ah ]
Marjorie1947 bets [$20]. (So he called the flop bet, which could look like a missed AK as it was kinda weak. Also with his action - raising the button, calling a raise, theres no reason to put him on AK. So I followed up my flop bet, but again with a small bet, this could have been bigger)
Mockinbrd raises [$40]. (He minraises me. I put him on a weaker ace, something like AT, and I think he's called on the flop to take it away on the turn.)
Marjorie1947 raises [$40]. (At the time I planned on minraising him back again here then pushing river. I thought this play would make him fold his AJ, AT. If I thought I had the best hand here I could call/call river, but I thought he had me beat)
Mockinbrd raises [$60.50]. (He reraises me again, this time $40 more. Now I'm sure I've got my read wrong, and he either has AK/AQ or TT. So I give up the ghost)
Marjorie1947 folds.
Mockinbrd shows [ 7s, 7d ] two pairs, sevens and fives. (What a sickhead! He made a great read or a stupid play here, one of the two. After reraising him preflop OOP, I'm very likely to have AK/AQ/AA here, but he got it right this time, wp!)
The time at which hand ended:Sep 12 2006 21:58 ET
Mockinbrd wins $246.08 from the main pot with two pairs, sevens and fives.

Was over $500 down at one point in the session, but finished it $8 up after the above hand. So over 10,500 hands this month I'm a buyin down. Oh well, I suck. At least I'm up after rakeback.

Hey jambon.

Not sure if anyone reads writes this blog anymore, but I have a quick question. You mention you bought sixthsense. What do you think of the program? I am using the trial version and although I find having the VPIP data readily available very useful, I have found the "fish ratings" pretty poor (ie ratings good TAGs are massive fish).

What do you think of the ratings? Do you use your own custom or just generally ignore them? Is it worth the $30/month?

Cheers,

Graham
