4th time a bit luckier

Went back to the Circus tonight for my 4th attempt at the £10 rebuy.

The rebuy period was pretty uneventful and I was at 7.7k at the break after 1 rebuy and an addon. With 2 tables left I was pretty short but a double up (my AJ vs AT) saw me through to the final table again as shortstack with 9k chips.

Fortunately there was talk of a saver and everyone agreed so 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize donated £200 to give £50 for 7th-10th. With guaranteed profit, a short stack and blinds of 2000/4000 I played some hands I might not have and doubled up twice (my A9 vs 99 and my 55 vs A6). I split the pot in another all-in as we both had AK. I then lost most of it with my A8 (sb) against KQ (bb) when I tried to get the blinds but recovered with another double with a small pair to 17k before my final hand...

We were down to 7 and another 17k stack raises to 10k. I pushed all-in with AKo and a large stack in the middle of us thought for some time and called. The original raiser was committed and called to show KTd and the big stack showed 99 - a pretty iffy call after a raise and re-raise. With AK and a pot of 51k+ chips I felt pretty good when the first card on the flop was an A. However the 3rd flop card was another 9 and it was all over :( As KT and I both had exactly the same chipcount we split the 6th prize of £100 and 7th of £50 to win £75.

So, 4 final tables in 4 attempts :) The times that I've cashed have been when I've entered the final table with the least chips ironically. And AK has been my losing hand on the last 2 occasions after being ahead at some point in the hand - it isn't called Big Slick for nothing!

Net win : +£44 (£75 - initial buyin - 1 rebuy - addon)

£10 rebuy placed:
1st=(with 3 others)/5? (£330)
8th/53 (£0)
8th/60 (£0)
6th=(with 1 other)/54 (£75)

You should come and give it a try sometime. I'm sure you'd have fun even if the format isn't the best!
