Well I’m here at the LAPC, though at least for now my wallet wishes I’d missed the flight. I played the PLO rebuys today. In one of the first hands post-rebuy, a very loose raiser opened from the hijack and a very loose caller called. With 75 blinds on the button, I looked down at KK93 and quickly decided that my opponents’ ranges were so loose that I should be three-betting with any kings. I three-bet, the raiser called, the caller folded. The flop came 983 with two hearts and the raiser led out for a near-pot bet. I shoved in and he called with T985. His hand held, and that was that. In hindsight, I think even against the loose ranges of my opponents, and even in position, I should just flat with my naked KK (I had no flush draws even). It’s a pretty bad hand. As played preflop, I think I like my shove on the flop. My top-and-bottom two pair with an overpair redraw is priced in or ahead of a decent chunk of his range, and there are probably even some hands he would incorrectly fold against my shove. Oh well.
I played some 60-120 Limit Hold ‘Em cash games after that. Since I don’t like to talk about bad beats, there isn’t much to say. I’ll summarize: I took more crazy beats in a short span than I ever have, and I’m thrilled I only lost 30 bets.
I’m taking a personal day on Saturday, and then I’m going to start out Sunday playing online. If I bust quick enough I’ll try to play this ironman (no breaks except for three meals) thing, but my east coast body is pretty worn out after one day out here, so I’ll have to really feel up for it if I’m to attempt to be Iron.
