Seventhsense 3rd In Cake Poker $50K For $5626!

50k Guaranteed, 100 $ + 9$ buy in, 577 runners,  5k starting stack and 15min blinds.

After seeing fellow EMS players play in the Cake 50k G over the last few Sundays I decided to give this well structured tourney a shot. Feedback from some of the palyers was that the tourney was full of open play and loose aggressive moves in the opening period of the games and having always been the type of player who seems to do ok at the start f games I had decided on a strategy where by I would look to control pot sizes etc early in the game by betting draws and small balling tptk type hands.

Feeling good about my game in general recently I started the game in that vein with bet and made flushes for reasonable pots.

7thsenseless wins 2,880 with Flush, Ace high

7thsenseless: shows [ 9h Qh ] (Flush, Ace high)

7thsenseless wins 2,100 with Flush, Ace high
abou***: mucks [ 8d, Jh ] (Pair)

Following these earlier plays I settled in with the intention of tightening right up and aiming to create a nice tight image at the table raising only once in the next 30 hands with KK and JJ and taking pot down after the flop.  I thought that a tight image may pay later on when the antes kicked in if I got deeper in the game.

Then came a poorly played hand pre flop and a disciplined lay down.

I enter the pot in ep with ak suited with a limp (expecting a raise ).. so when no raise come I am happy to play the pot passively I tell myself.  A rainbow Ace high board looks safe enough to bet and clear some players out and I get two callers.  The board pairs and I feel with draws and weak aces possible ill take one more shot at it .. one call.. I check the none diamond river expecting a weak bet or check but I receive a large bet on the river .. Annoyed at myself I reluctantly fold to an 8 or a busted flush draw … u decide…??

The rest of hour one was spent playing TAG playing only the AJ + pps.  I had some playable hands but all in ep when I had established a good tight image only showing down with strong hands.  I  lost one pot other pot other than the AK fold that I VPIP when I had AJ and lost to a turned Q on a 9J3 board…. even this hand I felt like I lost the minimum and was happy enough with the play keeping my moral high… this hand plus a few set mining attempts saw me dwindle for 8k – 6.5k at break 1.

183rd/422/580

30 minutes into the second period.  I’m was at 5.5k when hand 93 brought my 1st all in moment in the game.

7thsenseless wins 11,080 with Full House, Queens  full of Fours

12.5k  in chips I go card dead for the rest of hour two and mange to maintain my stack with a few raise and takes.  Scouting for any re-steal opportunities and watching players actions and showdowns carefully.

Break 2    12.5 k             101/161/580

chippie was 65k        Average stack was 16 k (ish)

Playing well for the next 50 hands but with no action I build up to 20k but with the top 90 paid this was action time for some and alas I found my pre flop raises where targeted by good players when I was in late position and felt forced to tighten up completely  as I suffered another burst of poor hole cards.  After a huge struggle to do anything I squeezed into the money with just 5 big blinds left!!!

Now looking at the money jumps, I noticed that from 90- 30th the cash jumps were petty as always and as such the play dramatically loosened up as it always seems to for a short period.  Then come three important hands in quick succession….the 1st being a quick double up shoving A rag into a BB when folded round to me SB  he calls with 78 and I’m on 15k.  A massive 10bb !! heheheh

The second was so funny and occurred just before break 3. So much so I spent the break period in stitches over it. Hand 233

I might add I took a fair amount of time to push in my chips thinking through the hand as played I couldn’t picture his hand holding a king.  So I breath in and push…..he auto folds !!!!!!!!!!  I mean come on !!!!  He also told the table he had AQ and misclicked.  Even funnier imo J

Break 3 I’m 36k and with blinds at 2k I feel in the green zone.  On returning I choose to tighten up for a while taking small pots down and moving to 45k.  A card dead period sees me float back down to 37k before finally getting a premium hand and some action.

Now id like to tell you I maintained and moved forward but I didn’t.  I loosened up and raised pots in late position again getting called or raised off pots over the next 40 hands or so running down to 36k again.  We had been at this table together for over an hour and a half so we knew each other very well something I was hoping to get some advantage of later if I could only build my stack.  With the blinds now at 5k and 12.5k in the pot to take down pre flop  the larger stacks started to take control.

Hand 280
I wake up with Ak and with a raise infront I shove pre flop looking for a double through.  Happy days I’m called by 99 and hit my ace to double through to 86k.  QQ quickly follows with apre flop bet and fold by villain I’m close to 100k for the first time and 12th place with 24 remaining

Hand 313 and 314

Now as I said we’d been on the same table for along time now and atleast 5 of the players had stayed with me.  The quilty of play was good and I thought I might find some opportunities to resteal.  A raise is shoved on by my self from the sb.  Expecting a fold from this aggressive pre flop player I get called by 99 and thankfully make a hand to double through to 180k.  The following hand ive put up to show you just how frustrated I was getting with the 2 players behind me (who I might add finished 1st and 2nd above me !!).  Ive I raised light I got killed of these two players especially very*** hence my out of character play from the button with the big hand.  I had plans for this guy but knew id have to bide my time.

Top 16 .. Another dead period sees me having to scrap to maintain a stack so aggressive play the key I set about raising and cbetting.I’m in 9th place and feel I can play my way to the final table with the inevitable tightening of play around the FT bubble I looked to take advantage but to no avail.  I have to tighten up and wait ofr ahand worthy of shoving.  I might add that I folded 77 88 during this phase in the game something I was very happy about especially in one hand where 2 players went in with 99 and AK when I folded 88.  Mid-pairs are a problem for me as I seemed to overplay them for my tourney life so often so I was really happy to avoid that trap.

The final table arrives and I’m in small stack shape with just 10bbs lying inth place from the 10.  I stay focused and watch a few players drop to 6 handed.

So here I am 6 handed and in 6th place.  When I wake up with 99.  But with a raise fromj the UTG very*** and a call from the loose re flop play of the other villain my aim when shoving was to take it down pre flop.  However I got a nice surprise when I am called by the other villain who shows 88 happy days I’m in with a shot of this now I think to myself.

I know this is a spot to try and make plays given my tight image so I look for a re-steal as TG and Desp 2 of my railing friends on ems (who I should thank for supporting me), had been pointing out the plays being made by our friends very*** and Good***  were to steal my blinds.. Also I had a guy to my immeadite right who thought he could open shove every time on my BB without any worries!!! Now was the time to act.

Please take note of the fact that this guy choose to show me that he folded A 10… now this meantto me I had some respect at long last and raised my moral no end at the time.

30-40 hands lfy by with the same flow peeking back into the game and my now leel on chips villain to my right in the sb kept shoving and shoving my BB … I mean 400k in chips open shove … EVERY SB ???.  I nearly called him down with k 5 at one point but was “encouraged” to fold by tg and desp !!!

Hand 454

I waited till I was ready and I know this hand may seem daft on the surface but I was 100% sure I was ahead here and took the plunge with no fear.

4 handed and I’m in with a real shout I feel good about my place on the table and my knowledge about the players styles etc.  4th place goes and I’m top 3 and feel like I can win it.

15 hands later I make this play I feel like I really can go on and win this game.  I mean…. calling turn and river with ace high felt sooooooo good I can tell you and I am sure it put him in his place.  However he was to have the last laugh on me…

until I pick up 99 again with a button raise from our friend very***.  Now I wish I had taken time to think this through a little more and I suppose that most people will say I played them right… however I went over this hand with Mick hart last night and I now feel given the stack the guy has behind him in relation to mine the more prudent play would be to call the 80k and when seeing an ace flop go cold.  However 99 3 handed is strong and I felt I could shove and be in with the best of it.  If this holds I’m HU and in a commanding position to go on and win it was my thinking.. If I lose it I have a small stack left but could still come bck three handed…. I shove my stack.

He flips AQ like I assumed he would be….

Gutted.

I last another 20 hands or so mixing it up with the players left but I can see they are being prudent as I should have been and waiting for me to double through or get knocked out before opening up.  My exit hand was another re-steal attempt that was called down but to my surprise I was I a race pre flop with A6 v 55.  with the river to come I need any heart and ace any six to win but it doesn’t drop my way and I leave the game with the best payout in my time so far.

To sum up I was really over the moon with my efforts and play and as I mentioned to the esm hierarchy this would not have been possible without the improvements I have made to my game over the last 12 months by reading, watching videos and chatting with fellow ems players about

Raising amounts when in ante games…  pre flop play with mid-pairs and re-stealing for kicks when you have my image at a table.

I cant thank you all enough for the support network at EAT MY STACK and fingers crossed this is the start of  a regular thing for me.
