    My own Bovada challenge 2pm EST tournament June 1-August 2

    I'm going to use this thread for tracking. I will post what number player I am for that tourney and maybe some big hands and what not.

    The tournament starts with 10k chips and runs with 10 minute levels Mon-Sat with 1 reentry.

    On Sunday, there is more guaranteed money, and the levels are 12 minutes long with 2 reentries.

    Goals

    40 buy ins minimum (33USD) (counting reentries)
    1 win (very hard IMO)
    4 final tables (doable but hard, and much harder on Sunday)
    10 cashes
    600 profit

    I will only use the reentry if I bust before the 1st break, even though you can use it longer. I think it becomes less valuable after that. However, if I am playing Sunday, I will be looking to use it later possibly, as with more money it becomes more worth it to enter late. I'm not going to play if I cant start playing by the first break.

    So here it goes.

    I was the bubble boy (45th place) shoved 18k a8 suited from the cutoff at 1250 2500 blinds button had me covered barely and called with 77 (small blind had about 20k and big blind had 12k behind)

    I really had jack shit this whole tournament, at least I had a few hands on Monday. I think you could fold the a8 suited there if you want to make the money, but that's an easy shove if you want a chance to win the tournament. I would have increased my stack by about 40% with antes if I get 3 folds.

    Ugh first hand I misplayed.

    Had j9 suited flopped an open ended, guy flopped top 2 with q10 and hit a runner runner flush.

    he bet the flop i call turn he checks i bet he raised i call river is the k of hearts he shoves i call.

    I really thought he had a set on the turn and all of my outs were clean or I would have folded to the turn check raise.

    Had it up to 30k lost 2 races in about 5 minutes:

    a10 v 99 (400/800 blinds) and aq v jj (500/1000 blinds)

    would have had 50k with the first one and 28k with the second

    Busted at 250/500 shoved k10 from the button into kk small blind.

    I was low because of this hand:

    125/250 bb with a10 of clubs cutoff opens to 750. I call. Heads up.

    Flop 1086 rainbow (8c)

    I check call 1250.

    Turn 5 completes rainbow.

    I check guy shoves all in for 7400 into like 4400. I think and call, he has Qk and rivers a queen.

    Really didnít have any reads on him but I expect to be ahead most of the time in that spot. Worse 10s, air, maybe a crappy 2 pair or jj qq is his range IMO.

    I had about 3k after and was scrambling.

    Ended up 36th (49.05 cash)

    Probably had more interesting hands today than the first 5 days combined.

    Still have not had anywhere near 45k (which is usually the average stack when they start paying). I have topped out at about low 30s.

    Got a complete gift with qq when i min raised under the gun (6 handed for this hand) at 500/1000 with about 14000 chips. BB shoves 11k with all others folding and has qj.

    Pretty much card dead after that aside from another qq hand when I busted a low stack right before the money (less than 2 big blinds).

    Ended up getting it in against a massive 100k stack when he raised to 7500 at 1250 2500 from middle position and I had aq in the small blind (allin for about 12k). He had qj and turned and rivered a jack to bust me.

    Just busted out. Got it in a limp pot early with 95 hearts on a 7810j board against just a 9 and rivered the flush. Pretty much dwindled out after that. Had the worst cards I had by far on any day. Ended up shoving with kq hearts UTG for 5800 at 400/800 blinds a low stack with 3500 calls with 10j and BB wakes up with AK flop ace game over. Had AK and JJ once both uncontested raise and take down preflop. Usually I would never get that low but lots of really bad starting hands and always action before me if I was on the second half of the table.

    since i have position i decide to just flat call

    utg+1 stays flops a107 utg+2 bets like 1900 and gets called by utg+1

    turn 7 they get it in aq vs a2

    river king

    5th place at the break

    First time Ive had chips about 70k

    What got me going was a shove from the small blind with j2 at 500 1000 when I had just 8200, bb called with 28 (no idea how i was ahead here TBH) and jack high won. Ironically, this was the same guy from the aces hand earlier.

    got 23rd (61.96 cash)

    Got a complete gift early when a guy had king7 and gave me all his chips on a 257q6 rainbow board

    won a big race with 10s vs kq

    that was about it until right before the money the deck ran me over for a couple levels although i did lose with ka to 99 when he shoved and i called in the big blind (would have put me at 70k with 1k/2k blinds)

    then the bubble took forever

    got my worst beat of the tournament when someone shoved 20k at 2500/5000 and i came over the top (had 25k) with ak of spades he had 78

    flop was aqs3s then running 7 (would have had about 65k)

    i was in desperation mode got a couple lucky wins where i had to stay in

    Going to do a quick update after 10 buyins

    30 more buyins minimum (this will be easy)
    1 win (not even close so far)
    4 final tables (had 2 realistic chances up to now IMO)
    3 cashes, going for a minimum of 10 (really think I could have made it on 7 of the 10 buy ins so far with one more hand won)

    down 156.26 (trying to win 600)

    I feel good so far. Lots of chances at early chips with horrendous play during the early levels for the most part. It does seem like they should cut registration earlier because the play is really getting bogged down with low stacks coming in 20 spots before the pay. I have yet to win a significant hand after payouts have started, so I don't see the stats getting much worse any time soon.
