The events feature an awesome structure relative to the buy-ins for live events. 7 Game will be awesome because about a quarter of the field won't know how to play one or more of the games, although i'm worried it might be a small field. If it's a 120+ field it's a huge value tournament since there are only about 20-30 players at Crown who are competent across all the games (basically the online pros who make the trip, joe hachem and lee nelson and maybe 5 other live pros). PLO will be awesome too, I think i've only finished outside the top 20% of the field once in an Omaha or Omaha Hi-LO tournament at Crown and this one has a very good structure for a $200 buy-in.

I may also decide to play the $340 Terminator (if I bust from the Heads Up in one of the early rounds and feel up to it) and the $1100 6max, depending on how i'm feeling. The main also features a repechage so if I fail to make Day 2 on the first attempt i'll probably have a second attempt since there's so much value in that tournament (I finished ~30th when I ran KK into AK and KK into AA back to back and lost both hands in the last HDS Main Event I played)

Not really looking to sell action over the series as a whole because I have to play at least a couple k worth of buy-ins to justify the travel expenses.

If anyone wants to buy half my action at close to face value for the $1100 6max however (we start 600bb deep w/ 40min levels) let me know and we can work something out since i'd like to sell half to lower the variance a bit if I play that event.

I'll also be updating my blog daily after each tournament with a TR

Nine days until Event #1. I'm getting pretty due to make another live final table soon and i'm playing quite well at the moment so we'll see how we go.

Any other Aussie PTippers going to make the trip?

Will update the blog with proper entries later.

Day 1

I depart Gold Coast airport at 6am for Melbourne and do my best to fall asleep since i've been awake all night. Unfortunately, there is a 3-5 year old boy sitting in the seat behind me who is having fun kicking my seat and poking my head. The flight attendant notices and tells him to stop. He stops for five minutes then starts again. This process repeats itself several times. Eventually, the boy's mother gets mad at him and yells at him to stop. He finally stops and I fall asleep.

I wake up as the plane is landing and quickly make my way to the very familiar airport-city shuttle. Upon arrival, I find out that my room isn't ready yet, so I leave my bags in the storage locker and head into Crown for Event 1, $230 NLHE. I catch up with some friends from Brisbane and Melbourne who are in the room and surprisingly, the event sells out half an hour before play is due to begin. Fortunately, I have pre-registered for everything.

I take my seat and don't recognise anyone at my starting table. This can only be a good thing.

We're starting with 15k stacks at 25/50 with 25 minute levels. I find a bunch of suited connectors and start raising and winning every second or third hand with cbets and finding no resistance. I've built up to about 17k when I find myself involved in my first significant pot. Both villains have ~14k

I'm on the button.

Dealt to SwoopAE: Ad Jd

A fairly tight player in MP raises to 175, the loose/donktastic CO calls, I call, everyone else folds.

Flop: 6d 4s 2d

Cool. MP bets 700.

What? This is a massive overbet for live poker and it means he probably has TT-AA. Normally I raise here but villain will probably just reraise me and I don't want to flip for stacks yet, plus i'm pretty sure I can get value if I make the flush.

CO folds and I call.

Turn: Js

Well that's interesting. I'm pretty sure he has QQ-AA a lot, although if he's only got a mid pair I just made the best hand.

Villain bets 1125. I call with the intention of folding to a large river bet unimproved, calling a small river bet unimproved or raising if I make the flush.

River: 4d

Well that's helpful.

Villain quickly and confidently bets 2000. Wait, he can't have JJ here can he? I'm pretty sure he wouldn't overbet the pot with a set on the flop, so JJ is the only hand that beats me. I consider flatting for a moment, then realise that's retarded since there are only two jacks left in the deck and villain probably has aces or kings.

I think for a few seconds, considering a small or large raise, then settle on 6000. Villain gets a pained look on his face and it's clear he has QQ-AA and knows it's no good. After about two minutes of deliberation villain folds AA. Stupid villain you're supposed to pay me off, I thought all live players were supposed to be bad. Nice laydown sir.

I spend the next few few levels accumulating by raising limpers with hands like Q6s and winning most pots with cbets. I'm up to about 24k by the time i'm involved again.

Dealt to SwoopAE: 7d 4h at 300/600/50. Villain is a solid laggy Asian kid and i've mostly steered clear of him so far since he's the second best player at the table by a large margin and is probably close to my level.

Action is folded to me, normally I walk him but i've been inactive for close to 20 hands so I decide to raise to 1800. Unfortunately, one of the purple '500' chips I grab is actually a black '100' chip so I raise to 1400. Villain is about to muck, then realises how small the raise is and elects to call.

Flop: 9s 4c 3d

I check. I should probably bet here but I figure villain fires most of his air if I check since he's very laggy. Villain checks behind.

Turn: 2s

I bet 1500, villain minraises to 3000. What? Why the fuck did I check the flop again? The board is so draw heavy and villain shouldn't have defended any hand that just made two pair that didn't have 2p on the flop so I think he may have something like 54 or 53 or maybe some spades. Although I normally fold here, something feels wrong and i'm pretty sure he's semibluffing so I call, intending to c/c a safe river and c/f a bad river. Villain is unlikely to play a nine this way so he either has some sort of nuts or a semi-bluff.

River: 4d

That's a weird card. If he had the nuts (a straight basically, sets seem unlikely since he would 3bet a PP BvB and he looked like he wanted to fold pre) then he still has the best hand. I've overtaken an unlikely nine or if he has 92 32 or 93 i've just improved to the best hand. If he has a four, he probably bets the flop when I check, right? Hmm...

I tank for a solid 30 seconds, considering bet/fold or check/call. Although he's laggy, if I lead the river, i'm pretty sure villain only shoves a straight or better and calls most of his 2p hands or a four so I can safely bet/fold the river. If I check though he's going to bluff all of the air/missed draws in his range, since he can't put me on a four if I check and my hand is massively underrepped. He may even vbet a nine, although I leave myself exposed to a large value bet as well.

I check after a solid minute (in hindsight 30% pot/fold to shove is probably better)

Villain casually grabs a stack of white '1000' chips and dumps them into the pot. It's 11,000 to call.

RF^TGUHIDR%UH*wefuh9fweweu9wh89e89hfwe89 why didn't I bet/fold?

I only have about 15.5k behind and villain has led 11k into a ~10k pot in a pure nuts or air situation. 56 is the most likely hand, I figure he's unlikely to have A5 since he looked like he wanted to fold preflop. He shouldn't have a full house, especially with only one four left in the deck, why does he minraise a four on the turn unless it's a four with a straight draw? 42 is possibly, but unlikely. Is he value betting 45 or 46 and i'm actually good? My hand is very, very underrepped for live. He isn't bad enough to lead hands containing a nine that he's actually played this way so far. So that leaves bluffs (mostly 5x or spades or both), a weaker four, 42, 56, possibly A5

I ask him if he realises I have a four and it elicits a seemingly mixed response from him, he's doing a good job at masking tells one way or the other.

Eventually someone else calls time on me. With about 20 seconds left, I announce call. Villain shows A5 and I feel really stupid. I made a complete mess of the hand. Jesus, lead the flop or at least fold the turn, my line is so retarded.

I pushbot my way back to 9k and then find 99 at 400/800/100.

A weak-tight woman limps (she's been limpfolding all day) and an aggressive, macho-looking guy who has been hyperaggressive/donked off most of his stack with top pair 2nd kicker when a guy raised/4bet all in on the turn against him moves all in for a bit over 7k, about 9bb. Action is folded to me on the CO, I reshove and everyone else folds.

Villain shows AA and again, I feel really stupid (although in this instance my call is definitely ahead of his range so i'm fine long term I guess)

The board runs out with four hearts. I have the 9h. Unfortunately, villain has the Ah.

I'm left with about 3bb and a few hands later I shove 77 into KQ (I think, I can't remember the exact hands) and bust.

GG, better luck tomorrow.

I decide to see '2012' the 'epic' disaster movie. It has some pretty special effects but the script and acting is beyond terrible. In all seriousness, the strongest acting performance came from the 7 year old girl from the family trying to flee the disasters. I usually like John Cusack and Amanda Peet's movies and they both gave career-worst performances. So did the guy who played the President, the main scientist and practically all of the movie's main characters. The fat Russian guy was ridiculous. The story was ridiculus and the supposedly 'sad' scenes actually made me laugh unintentionally with the cringe-worthy script and bad fake crying from the actors.

Overall, I consider this the worst movie that I have seen in 2009 so far. Do not see this movie under any circumstances.

After the movie, I get dinner with local live pro Sam Khouiss and head up to his room to give him a transfer since he wants to play online. He's a well known figure and he shows me large past transfers with some FTP red pros so I have no probs doing a large xfer with him, he's a great contact to have incase I ever need to move money in Melbourne or even overseas in the future. I watch him play some 2/4 PLO8 and 4/8 7-Game online; he plays quite well but loses a bunch of races and ends up down a couple hundred. We watch the WSOP ME Final table on TV. Spoiler... Joe Cada wins!

I wander around Crown for a while checking out Melbourne finest ladies in their cocktail dresses and consider playing some roulette, then I remember that I don't play pit games so instead I head back to the hostel. Eventually I fall asleep after having been awake for about 35 of the past 36 hours. Mixed games tomorrow (and PLO if I bust early from Mixed Games)

Non-Hold'em games with Crown fish? Let's do it.

Swoop 69.9k an hour ago in the 7 game when the average stack was 40k. Only 20 left in the game. He must have listened to Seb in Vegas

Re: 2012. I disagree, if you go in expecting nothing but bad acting, bad script, no thought required whatsoever, loud noises, and good special effects, it's not bad.
It's basically Independence day but with the Earth's crust breaking instead of Aliens.

Back on topic. Take 'em all down!

fwefweuhfwe had my TR written out (long) and the page said cannot be loaded or some crap and I lost it

Finished fifth in the 7game for 1k; mincash with 5 paid. Busted Joe Hachem, lost two flips in a row with 5 left. Will write it out again later. That's frustrating.

Always write everything out in Word or notepad or whatever and save often. It took me two times losing everything before I learned my lesson.

Cliffnotes for Day 3; will write up full TR later

Played $550 HU

Best of 3 per round; 32 players in the field.

R1G1

After some minor exchanges, I find myself with an 11k-9k chiplead. I'm dealt Ad 5d at 100/200 and pop to 525 from BTN. Villain calls.

Flop: Jd 9d 2s

I bet 675, Villain tanks and raises to about 2400, I shove, villain calls and tables Qd 4d. Cool.

Turn: Js

River: 3h

Ace high ships the first game. 1-0.

R1G2

I'm completely card dead and villain s hitting every flop. I make a bad laydown to a 4bet with something like AT; villain shows 7c2c. Ouch. I find myself sitting on about 6500 at 150/300.

Villain raises to 750 (he's been opening most BTNs and folded to all 3bets so far because I haven't made many compared to him), I find Tc 9c and shove, villain snaps with Kh Kd. Oops.

Flop: 2d 2s Jc

Um, yeah.

Turn: 7c

Wow, no way, eleven outs one time?

River: 9h

Guess not. 1-1.

R1G3

I'm completely card dead and villain is moderately card dead and we pass the blinds back and forth and give a ridiculous number of walks. At one point, I walk villain 7 times out of 8 hands, never having better than 94o (I raised 65 the time I didnt walk him).

Anyway, I can't get anything going and villain is kinda stationy so I hover between 6k-8k for ages and i'm down to 6k when the blinds hit 200/400. I find kings; my first 99+/AK hand of the tournament. I make it 800 (my standard has been minraise-2.5x because villain has a reasonably high 3bet frequency and I've been leaving room to 4bet shove (twice) or fold (most of the rest of the time))

Anyway, he calls and the flop is AxKxJx. He checks, I bet 800, he calls.

Turn: Tx

FFS, stupid fucking card, if he has a queen I lose and if he doesn't I lose a street of action.

He checks and I check, intending to snap any river bet/value bet if checked to. Sadly I can't get three streets vs this guy with a set on this board.

River: 6x

Villain checks and looks like he's giving up with a weak one pair hand so I tank a little and bet 1100. Villain makes the crying call and flashes the case king then mucks and i'm back in business. We pass the blinds back and forth through 300/600.

I reshove on two of his opens (K8 and AJ) and suddenly I have a 11.5k-8.5k chiplead. The blinds go up to 400/800 (it's been about 2 hrs for G3 at this point and we've barely played any noteworthy pots)

I find A6 and shove BTN; villain INSTASNAPS with 33 and tables it as if it's aces. Off to the races. Let's finish this.

Flop: 34J

Or not

Turn: 5

Let's try this again... EIGHT OUTS ONE TIME

River: 4

Awesome, he really needed that full house.

Now i'm at a 3k/17k disadvantage. This doesn't look good. I shove and win the blinds twice somehow to get back to 5k then villain shoves the BTN and I call with AT. He has 66. Time to race for an average stack.

Flop: AJ5

That's more like it!

Turn: 7

River: 8

Well, here we go again...

Next hand I find A9 on BTN and shove.

Villain makes his patented INSTASNAP with QJo. The lightest he's seen me shove is A6 and the lighest i've actually shoved is K8. Good play sir!

He has me covered by a couple hundred, but this one is for all the cookies.

FINISH HIM

Flop: 338

So far so good. HOLD~!

Turn: Q

Well that's unfortunate. Ace, please.

River: K

Sigh. We shake hands and I wish him luck in R2. I had an edge but he wasn't bad by any means. Villain later busted iN R3 to my friend Lee.

I play the $340 Bounty NLHE tourney and take $300 in bounties because people like putting 15k into the pot with AQ on an AKJxx board with blinds at 50/100. I'm up to 85k with the average at 30k by the start of 600/1200. I see a limped flop on the BTN with 7s5s and the flop is Ks Qs 8h. Weird aggro guy bets 10.4k into a 7k pot and everyone else folds. He has about 88k and we're two of the top five stacks in the tournament with about 70 left. He always, always minbets with a set or 2p (he's had 3 sets and 2 twopair flops) and always overbets the pot with one pair hands and draws. I'm in a gross spot because his range is nut flush draw, Kx, Qx only. I add 20% to my stack by shoving; he's calling about half the time with AK (which he shouldnt have but he sucks so who knows) and maybe half the time with the nut flush draw since I haven't been out of line and it'll be 65k more into a 160k pot. Despite his wacky playstyle he isnt too awful for live standards so I give him credit for folding most of his range if I shove since he'll put me on KQ, nut flush draws and 88 and I did overshove two pair earlier because I knew a fish couldnt fold one pair.

Anyway, he tanks for about no exaggeration 6-7 minutes and eventually says screw it lets gamble and calls with the nut flush draw. FFS of course that's what he has. I can't hit my six outs to one pair and villain wins a 5.5x avg stack pot with ace high and I feel really dumb.

After the tournament, Sam Khouiss, Gary Benson and I head up to the Mahogany Room (VIP area at Crown where you need to be a millionaire to enter basically) and I get signed in with a guest pass. Joe Hachem is smoking cigars with the brothers from the band Nickelback. Gary knows them from somewhere (probably because he has more money than God) and introduces us. The Nickelback guys are cool. Gary asks one of the brothers if they gamble (the other one is playing roulette already) and he says my brother does but I don't gamble, I play poker. He's going to try to play the WSOP ME if he can get the time off touring. The Nickelback guys are cool. The two girls Gary has hanging off him (because he's richer than God) and very impressed to have met Nickelback and on the way out they hint that Gary's going to be the lucky recepient of a threesome tonight. Having hundreds of millions of dollars must be nice.

Sam and I play a $109 MTT on Stars and we finish 7th for about 1200 when 88<AJ and A3 AIPF in a massive 3way pot. Stupid fourth club on the river.

Cliffnotes; will do a full TR later

1100 6max

Chip up to 40k playing flawlessly no showdowns without effective nuts

Chip down to 20k shoving top pair+draw into set in a spot where villain has set/air on turn

Chip up to 40k making sick hero-call with AQ on K42Q4 board when villain shoves river for about 3/4 pot after action on each street; villain shows 33.

Chip up to 55k stacking same villain; Ah 3h vs Jd Td on the turn on a 8h 7h 8c 9h board - preflop, flop and turn action; villain is all-in drawing dead on turn

Hover between 50-60k for a while; have 6 of my 8 3bets so far during the tourney flatted; got 4bet once and got only one fold

Then this hand of course against a guy i've 3bet five times and he's flatted five times; I think i'm 3-2 or 4-1 against him so far in 3bet pots.

I have As Qc on BB, villain is loose/aggressive/thinking but not brilliant/on the SB. He's also a station as well as an aggrodonk pre.

At 500/1000/100, I have ~58k, villain has ~52k. Average is ~63k

Folded around, Villain raises to 2500 on SB; SB folds, I raise to 6600, villain calls. His range is any ace, broadway cards, low pairs pretty much. Villain is constantly trying to outplay me postflop; mixed results.

Flop: Ac Td 2s

Villain checks

I bet 8800 which I know to him looks like a scared JJ-KK type bet. I fully expect him to float 100% of his range and get all of his chips in on later streets with all ace hands. He would 4bet AK TT and AQ pre. He's also going to bluff the turn or river if he doesnt have an ace and I show any weakness.

Villain calls

Turn: Ah

Perfect card, now villain NEVER puts me on an ace, goes broke with any ace on the river if I show weakness here due to his river vbet committing him.

Villain checks and I check. He always bets over 20k now on the river and he has 0-3 outs depending on his hand. He'd also be leading AT/A2 now so i'm way way way good.

River: 3s

Villain bets about 22600, I put him in for 10k more, villain makes a speech, calls and shows... A3.

Fuck you, you slowrolling son of a bitch.

I then chip back up to 10k open shoving and jam K9 into QJ and the board promptly runs out KxTx9. Sigh.

He bet/calls river without filling up too AND he bets 20k+ the times he has floated me with air on the flop whereas he would fold those hands out if I bet turn too so my line is perfect. I had him so badly trapped. As played it would have been the same result if I bet the turn but I get his stack when he has air too this way.

So gross, 4k+ equity pot, about 30 players left with 12 paid when I busted.

GG, bring on the Main Event.
