Session notes: I'm kind of stuck in a bad run again. I am ending up with hands, but running into the top end of everyone's ranges. I've managed to keep losses to a minimum, but I know that my recent losses have affected my play by way of some entitlement tilt. I need to get a handle on that.
Day of week: Saturday
Session 1: MTT - $135 buy in, 15K stacks
Start time: 12:23 PM End time: 4:45 PM
- Played well. Defining moment was getting it in good and losing to a two outer that left me short stacked.
Session 2: 1/2 NL, $200 buy in
Start time: 5:37 PM End time: 9:02 PM
- Most of the losses were taken playing too wide opening range at a bad table. I end up flopping 8-12 out draws that require me to continue on the flop. This is where entitlement tile shows up!
Interesting hands: Here are a couple interesting hands from this session.
Hand 1: QJo BTN (tournament)
Situation: This is a little later in the tournament. Blinds are 500/1000/200. I have about 12 BBs and am short stack. Hand has been limped three ways preflop. Villain 1 is maniac that plays way too many hands pre. Villain 2 is still playing a limp/fold style - obviously does not make it too deep in these types of tournaments. SB and BB are very tight. Table is 7 handed.
Hero has QJo on BTN. Two limpers. I raise to 2500. Blinds fold and two limpers call. Preflop pot is 7500 plus blinds (1500) plus antes (1400) = 10400
Flop is 9c6s4d. Checks to hero. Hero bets 4000. All fold.
Analysis: I need to understand how to do this more often in tournaments!
