888 Super Stack London

28 Jun

After a couple of fun weekends socialising – ; One of my closest friend’s Hen party in London followed by a fabulous Wedding in Krakow, I was ready & very much eager to get back to the tables for some live poker action:)

ImageLuckily for me there was a Super Stack Series in town, happening at one of my favorite poker venues in London – Cromwell Mint Casino this weekend. The place seems to attract the friendliest players in town, hence there is always good banter & atmosphere at the tables. I assume, this is because the majority of regulars are recreational players & casual adrenaline seekers, who are not as competitive as professionals could be and play more for “fun” rather than “win” aspect.

I made my way to the Mint yesterday just before 1pm for the flight 1a of the Super Stack Series, feeling positive and ready to crush the tournament:) It’s a Β£150+15 buy in + an optional (no brainer:) 5,000 chips for an extra Fiver.

I love the fact that the 30k starting stack & a decent structure (Super Stack Series structure) for this specific event provides you with heaps of opportunity for lots of post flop play.

The action on my starting table was fast & furious and regardless of how sensitive I was playing, I found it very hard to win a pot. Players were not giving me much respect & calling off huge over bets with marginal/drawing hands & somehow getting there versus me. I ended up 4bet shipping with AK suited for 35bb in late position and losing a flip when BB decided to make a hero call with 10,10 (for his life and 2 players still to act)

ImageAnyhow, I after a long break chilling at home, having some therapeutic ice cream as suggested by poker pro Dara O’Kearney on Twitter (https://twitter.com/daraokearney) and my change into a new/luckier outfit for the night, I’ve decided to give the Super Stack another go and play the Flight 1b at 8pm.

It was a bad idea! I didn’t run any better; didn’t get many playable hands, kept on missing flops and in the end lost another flip for 22bb JJ < AQ all in pre. Sigh!!!

The highlight of the night was making a new female poker friend. She is from Latvia, plays poker for a living and lives in London too! You will probably see us hanging out together at the tournaments from now on;)

I am having my sister over this weekend, so going to have a girly day & night in today, starting with a full English Brunch shortly and some inevitable shopping trip later πŸ™‚

For whose of you who don’t have much going on today and fancy playing some poker, there is another Super Stack Flight at 8pm at the Mint tonight not to be missed!

Good luck and see you soon x
