Bovada $5,000 NLHE Superstack (T5,000)
I’m not going to annoy anyone by recounting the full run of this game, but it was another deep run for me that was made particularly pleasing after a bluff gone wrong and a semi-miraculous recovery, so here are a few key hands.
Hand 92 9
I open to 1,200 and SB 3bets to 3,200. BB drops out and I call. The flop is K
Hand 93 9
Less than 5BB. M about 2. I fold.
Hand 94 Q
I go all-in and BTN calls with 5
Hand 95 8
Hand 96 2
Fold. A player is eliminated with A
Hand 97 Q
The Portland Nuts. Action folds to me, I shove my 10BB and the player in BB who I had some back-and-forth with earlier calls with A
Hand 98 T
I don’t know if people are just sitting back because they think there are going to be some fireworks or if they just had bad cards two hands in a row, but they’re not going to be disappointed if it’s the former. I 3x open and the guy whose aces I broke is all-in immediately for more than 4x my stack. I call with my ace, and he has J
Hand 99 A
HJ opens to 900 and I call. BTN comes along with SB. The flop is 5
I bust a guy on the hand after break. The guy whose aces I busted goes off on a wild gamble and busts before we hit the money at 45 players. There’s an enormously long bubble. I get up over 60k, but end up busting shoving 10BB over an opening raise from a stack of 45K and J
