The $300 NLHE started at 6AM, so I let myself wake up whenever I woke up and then late registered it. I mentioned having a bit of a revelation on Sunday that I wasn’t adapting well to the amount of 3-betting I was encountering in these tournaments. I think I did a better job of that in this tournament, though as you’ll see later I spazzed in a pretty bad way in the $500 1R1A.

I won a big pot early in the $500. It was a horrid river card for me, but fortunately he had about the only hand I could still beat:

Turn: (t1210) 10♣ (2 players)
Hero bets t1111, BB calls t1111
River: (t3432) 8♠ (2 players)
Hero checks, BB checks
Total pot: t3432
Hero had 6♠, 9♣ (straight, ten high).
BB mucked Q♦, 7♦ (two pair, Queens and eights).
Outcome: Hero won t3432
FWIW I think he should fold the turn.
In this next one I played back post-flop at a guy I knew was opening too wide of a range from early position. Too bad he had the hand I was representing. Interesting spot on the river when I get there but can’t value bet because I’ve already repped a stronger hand than I actually have:

UTG bets t300, 3 folds, Hero calls t300, 3 folds

Like I said, spazzed out pretty badly on that last one.
