This weekend were the Venlo Vip days in Venlo, Limburg, the Netherlands. 4 big live poker tournaments in 4 days. First day there was the EUR 220 FO, second day the EUR 100 1R1A, Saturday the main event (EUR 550 buyin) and Sunday the EUR 50 rebuy. Tried to qualify for the ME online, but just didn't make that. But, because it's my birthday tomorrow, I gave myself a gift, cashed out some $ from my pokerstars account and played the EUR 100 1R1A friday and the 50 rebuy yesterday. Needed some practising for the upcoming WSOPE-event I qualified for.

Friday 3th July 2009 EUR 100 1R1A.
Startingstack was 1500 chips and I didn't do to much the first hour. Took some chips with AK and 88, so I had a 3k stack at the first break and took a 2k addon. Blinds starting to go up fast after the break and antes came up when I found pocket tens. Blinds 150/300 and I raise utg to 900, when a German dude in MP shoves allin for more then my stack. I have got 3k chips left and decide to make the call, because the German dude plays way to many hands. He shows AQ for a flip, doesn't hit, so I can play on with about 7k chips.

On the picture of Pokercity I'm in seat 1 (next to the dealer, just a piec of my head lol) and the German I eliminated was in seat 7.

After the TT hand I didn't get to much, but then I got involved in a blind battle with the BB. I completed with A3. Flop 34J, I bet 600, BB raises and I have to fold. Then I find 99 UTG and I raise to 900, "shorty" (2040 chips) in MP shoves allin and CO calls. CO has me covered and I decide to fold. Shorty shows TT and CO has AK. CO turns his K obv, but I mad a nice laydown there. Just for the dinnerbreak I have 4k left, blinds being 200/400 with a 50 ante. Table is shorthanded and MP raises to 1200. Ik expect a bluff, while table is shorthanded, he is a bigstack and he raised a few times in a row. Ik see AQ in my BB, shove my stack in, and after a few minutes he makes the call. Flop was with an ace but no queen unfortunately, so I just could join the dinner and after that I could go home

Sunday 5th July 2009, 50 rebuy.
Played the EUR 50 rebuy yesterday, also called maniac-fest, so almost everyone went allin in the first hand. The casino even gave a gift to the table that would make the most rebuys in the first hour.

I took it easy the first hour and didn't spew my stack away. 2nd day of the Main event was running also, so I took a look there in the rebuyperiod. First hour is over pretty fast, and chips enough left if you double once. And that happened when I got dealt AA UTG, I shoved my stack in at my hyperagrresive table and only got 1 call I double and go on to the next hour, phew no rebuys anymore.

The most hyperagressive people are out just after the break That were the people with the most skills obv A few minutes after the break I find pocket aces again. UTG+1 minraises to 400 (blinds 100/200, ante 30) and I shove my chips (+/- 2000) in, but don't get a call. Maybe I should have flatcalled, but I expected a call form hyperagressive IR. Hand after that I find 33 in my BB, and I call an allin from the button who has "only" 1400 chips left. He shows QK, No K no Q. Shipship. Immediately I get 44 in the hand after in the SB and I fold after a raise from bigstack. Then I get AJ on the button, I wanted to raise, but unfortunately I make a stringbet, so the BB can see a flop for free. Flop comes 23J check/check, A on the turn and check/check again. Then we get a K on the river, I decide to make a potbet for value and get a call from the BB showing KJ

Now I have a nice 5,5k stack after this nice run of hands Unfortunately now the worse thing happens that can happen with this stack and the crappy structure, getting tottally carddead 72o, 52s, 39o, I don't get any picture cards at all The next disaster is coming now, with 2,5k left I get reseated to a table with bigstacks Blinds 200/400, ante 50, I finally find a sort of a hand, A8s UTG, best hand in hours, and I shove all my chips in and get a call from a guy in MP, not the biggest bigstack, but he thought his QJo were very nice. So I was in the lead preflop (didn't expected that) but unfortunately a queen comes on the turn, and I have to leave the tournament in place 48.

Unfortunately After my hot run from 4 hands in a row I couldn't get more chips, and it was over to early. But it was fun and a good experience for the upcoming WSOPE-event I'm going to play in London. Startstack over there is 10k chips, 10 times as money as in these tournaments in Venlo, and that all with the same blindlevels. So that's way better
