Online Tournament Action Action Action

There are a couple of tournament on Stars coming up that are worth having a look at ; on Tuesday Pokerverdict are kicking in $2000 to a $20 tournament, 1500 EST (I suggest you check on the day exactly when that is our time), here's the link. It's a little unclear but I don't think you have to have originally signed up through Pokerverdict to be able to play. I was able to register OK. If by any chance you don't have an account on Stars (unlikely but anyway) Pokerverdict will also pay your $20 buyin. Can't say fairer than that. Of course I am not recommending that anyone open an additional account on Stars just to take advantage of this (cough).

Also tonight on Stars they're guaranteeing $1.5 million in the Sunday night eggfest and even if that's met the field should be pretty tasty so I'm going to have a rare shot at this. 8-30 start tonight because of US summer time.

Cheers for this, only just regged for the million in time because I thought it was at 9:30 until I read this.

Looks like i'll be alright anyway:

MP3 (t33994)
CO (t109238)
Hero (t124314)
SB (t50015)
BB (t138316)
UTG (t60860)
UTG+1 (t129764)
MP1 (t29296)
MP2 (t217731)

Preflop: Hero is Button with Kc, Kd.
6 folds, Hero raises to t12000, 1 fold, BB raises to t138116, Hero calls t112114 (All-In).

Flop: (t263630) 5d, 5s, Ts (2 players, 1 all-in)

Turn: (t263630) 3c (2 players, 1 all-in)

River: (t263630) Jc (2 players, 1 all-in)

Final Pot: t263630

Results below:
BB has Td 5h (full house, fives full of tens).
Hero has Kc Kd (two pair, kings and fives).
Outcome: BB wins t263630.

Thanks for the action

Interesting that when Stars guarantee $1.5 million they smash $2 million (>10,000 entrants) so the guarantee doesnt cost a cent. Some of the additional entries may well down to more Europe/Scandanavia-friendly start of 8.30 due to Daylight Saving Time starting earlier this year.

I thought they wouldn't have to add any money but 10K runners did surprise me. My finish of 7588th is officialy my worst ever. I did lose it all with Aces. In two separate pots.

Hats off to the T5 guy, my kind of player.
