Played some SnG-donkfests while waiting for the bodonkey to start – nothing unusual here, but I doubt that many of you would even consider to kill time until 3am…I do…not as regularly as usual, but for tonight’s bodonkey I’m doing it, again…

So I played some donkfests on Stars…and all in all I’m pretty satisfied with my play. I cost myself some money in one of the five I played. I look down at ATo on the button…I’m the chipleader, the SB is short, the BB is second in chips (I got him covered by 1k), UTG is short. As it’s a six-max SnG, we’re not on the bubble yet, but with blinds starting to rise again shortly (in this hand they’re at 75/150 and both shorties have less than 10BB) it’s crunch time. UTG folds, I standard-pop it to 450, SB folds, BB raises to 1450 which is around a third of my stack. I ponder, not very long and push. Hmm…BB obv instacalls with AKs…good timing…no help and he’s got a monster-stack now and the other two along with me are short. Next hand I open-push UTG with A6o…BB calls with QQ and I’m busto. Quick rewind. From first to out in fourth in two hands. Necessary? Not really, I mean yeah, the BB in the first hand could be making a move, but why should he with two shorties at the table? And even if so, I can wait for a better spot. So I blame myself for that one.

The other matches were pretty standard. I bubbled in one, where I shouldn’t have…money goes in on the flop KT vs K8 on a K-high board…he turns the three-outer and I’m busto. At least I was able to win one and finish second in another one, so slightly up for the night and not really in the mood to continue the “killing time theme”…so enjoy the random pic dump…and I’ll be back later after the bodonkey, let’s see how I can get unlucky this week 😉
