Taking A Shot

Earlier in the year i committed to playing at least 2 Sunday Millions by the end of the year. I kinda lost site of that for a while, but after railling Kennl from RTR go deep in FTOPs #24 i realized that i should've at least given it a shot.

So i decided to start playing more sats. Tonight i got home from work and got into a few sats; a $24 stt to the 750k on sunday, a $7.6 sat to a $55 sat to the 750k and 2 $8.8 $26 token sats. I won a $26 token, the $55 seat, and the seat in the 750k... It was a really good night. Here's one hand i played when we were 3 handed that was perhaps one of my sweetest hands in recent memory;

Full Tilt Poker, NL Hold'em Tournament, 100/200 Blinds, 3 Players

BTN: 160
Hero (SB): 6,300
BB: 7,040

Pre-Flop: (300) :Ac :3h dealt to Hero (SB)
BTN folds,Hero raises to 600, BB calls 400

Flop: (1,200) :3d :3s :Qd (2 Players)
Hero checks, BB bets 600, Hero raises to 1,200, BB calls 600

Turn: (3,600) :Ah (2 Players)
Hero checks,BB bets 1,000, Hero calls 1,000

River: (5,600) :6c (2 Players)
Hero checks, BB bets 1,200,Hero raises to 3,500 and is All-In, BB calls 2,300

Results: 12,600 Pot
Hero showed :Ac :3h (a full house, Threes full of Aces) and WON 12,600 (+6,300 NET)
BB mucked :Ad :Jh (two pair, Aces and Threes) and LOST (-6,300 NET)

With this hand i secured the win and a seat in the tourny.

So over the next few days i plan on watching as many sunday major videos or hand histories as i can. Hopefully if i get a bit of luck and run good i can have a huge day.

Nice satellite win. Good luck in the Sunday tourney. (That's where the real money is!)

The check-minraise on the flop is a bit suspicious. Better to make a standard c-bet on the flop, or check-call if you're worried he will call. Flush draw is a minor concern compared to maximising value when you're ahead.

lol, of course it was suspicious... I wanted him to think i was trying to rep the 3 to steal the pot. while giving him great odds on a call to get him committed to the hand. Once the Ace peeled that was all she wrote... the flush draw was never a concern for me.
