MIddle of the field in the HOY
Played another BBT3 event last night, Mondays at the HOY, and actually for the first time since my MATH win on Christmas Eve, I was on the same table as Hoyazo himself. Also with a couple other tough players, including BBT3 monster Tuscalossa John, so I knew I had my work cut out for me. With my tight style, I was getting pushed off my good by not great hands, and bled off a few hundered chips early. My AA got no action to a 3X raise, so when I finally got QQ UTG, I simply minraised. Hoy read me correctly (see his blog) for a strong hand, but his KK was stronger, so his push was good, my instacall not so much (I read him for a resteal of my minraise, not a monster hand). The Q on the flop put me ahead, and I managed not to get resucked out on. Unfortunetly that was the best I could do all night, as I never really got about 4,000 chips, and eventually got to push mode when we were down around 30 left of 70 starters. 27th place and no points, so I probably sit at 13th-15th for May, and will need a good showing in tonights Skillz game to move into the Top 10 and continue my run for a TOC seat and/or a $2000 package for the most points in May.
