The week has been rather slow in the casino for poker. We do have the usual people playing the tournaments in the morning and early afternoon. I am trying to stick to a schedule of playing tournament and live play. I am playing the deepstack on Wednesday night now and will play live on Thursday night. Friday will be open to play the afternoon tournament. I played last night in the deepstack. I went out of the tournament in 15th place. The player next to me was playing loose and I made a call of his all in and lost. What do you think of this play? I have Ks and Jc. We both enter the pot and the flop comes QcXcXc. I checked and the player goes all in for T$25,100 and I go ahead and call. I turn over my KJ looking for either a club for the flush or a straight. He turns over AJ with no flush possibility. He wins the pot with his Ace high at the end. The turn was an 8 and the river was the 9. I am getting to the area in the tournament where I need to make better decisions with my chip stack. It always comes down to one or two hands could make a difference in my outcome. Earlier in the day I did play in the 1pm tournament and was able to cash so the day was not a total letdown. Have a fun day…..
