Life in the Holdem Grinder. A No Limit Poker Journal. 12/13/11.


Recap of Tuesday no limit poker action by Fred123. December 13th 2011.

My no limit poker game started at 7 pm. We started the night with a single table holdem poker tournament. $70 buy in and winner takes all. The whole thing only took about 3 hours. Jeff won the poker tournament. Congratulations.

The $1/$1 no limit cash game started around 9pm. Average buy in was $120. The game was 8 handed. The poker game broke at 2am.

I play a little holdem every night after work. Typically a 2 hour no limit session.

$2/$5 no limit holdem. Session started at midnight. Session over at 3am. Buy in for $500. Cash out for $840.

The cash game action had begun much earlier around 8pm. There were three players with at least $2,000. Small pots for a couple hundred dollars went back and forth. The largest pot of the night was $2,700. This can be a pretty deep stack $2/$5 no limit game. Players can buy in for a maximum of $1500. The game was 8 handed until 3am. At 430am there was wait list. $7000 on the felt, maybe more.

I didn’t get involved in any major pots. I took down $200+ with pocket aces. However, seat 3 made an amazing call on the river tonight. There was only $170 in the pot when seat 9 gets the bet up to $500 on the river. No limit holdem, there almost no money in the middle compared to the bet, and seat 3 makes the call showing pocket sevens. Seat 9 only has ace high, and $1170 is in the pot. WTF? Sick call? Crazy call?
