Poker Content

I played some poker at the Vic recently and got lucky in a hand. Super satellite for a seat in the EPT main event, 3000 starting chips, blinds are 25/50.

About the fourth hand in there's one limper and I raise to 150 in middle position with As Jh. Both blinds and the limper call. Flop comes A 7 5 with two spades.

They all check to me and I bet 500. Both blinds call with the big blind giving it a small dwell. The limper folds.

Turn is another 5 and they both check to me again. I look at my stack and think, "Fuck it, it's a dumb super satellite", and go all in. The small blind thinks for a while and folds.

The big blind now goes into the tank and folds his cards face up, saying, "It's too early, I can wait". His hand? A 7!

Hi there, I was at the Vic but I don't believe we have met before, mainly because I don't know what you look like.

If you spot me, feel free to introduce yourself as I remain grateful for the mentions in your poker blog round up on poker verdict.

On a sidenote, I think I spotted a typo. I believe Mark Telcher has an 's' in it. Hope that helps.

Keep up the blog, always reading.
