180SnG – the cheap version

After I heard about the new “cheap version” of Stars’ 180SnG (4$ + 0.40$) I thought I’d give it a shot. Nothing spectacular to report…half-way through the first hour I flop TPTK, turn is blank and my opponent fires…I ponder and think that there are basically four possibilities:

  1. He’s trying to buy the pot
  2. He’s holding two pairs
  3. He’s holding a small set and is afraid of being outdrawn on the river
  4. He’s trying to make me think that 1. is true

2. Is possible, but I don’t think so…3. Doesn’t make much sense either, why would you overbet the pot so much? …so I think it’s 1. and I call his push (he has me covered)….as he flips his pocket sixes to match the flopped 6 I see that it’s a mixture of 3. and 4. – nicely play, dastard! 😉 Out in 111th…

And condolences regarding your loss of money and 111th finish. I know that money meant a lot to you.

I’ve been looking for the $4 180’s…I don’t see them. What am I missing?

Well, I forgot to mention that they’re only running during the day (I can’t remember the exact times, but I think the last ones start at 5pm ET – which fits my timezone (+6) quite nicely…afternoon/early evening fun)…
