Pokerguru Mentorship Program and last week
Hi, my name is Ashutosh, and most of the goa tournament and cash game regulars already know me, so wouldn't want to waste much time with the pleasantries
I am very excited to be a part of the Pokerguru mentorship program, a chance to learn tournament poker from guys who have won millions online and live cumulatively. I will be blogging pretty actively for the next few months, and looking forward to learn from everyone here.
Last week was pretty average and break even for me tournament wise. I was in Goa for India Poker Series and played 3 tournaments. On the first day, I split the 2nd prize in the mega satellite. In the 10K event, I was running okay until my last hand which was when I was 20 BBs deep and was as follows - Cutoff limps with Q5ss, I check my BB with J7. The flop is J 7 5, rainbow, with 9K behind, i check, Big blind bets 3K, I checkraise him to 6K,he calls. The turn is a K, I go all in for my last 4K, he calls, but the river is a brutal 5, he makes his trips, and that was the end of me.
In the 20K main event, I didnt get a double up in the initial stages, although my stack was pretty constant, I was constantly getting blinded out, as I was card dead and someone always got better cards, when I had hands. Ultimately, I shoved 22 from cutoff, which ran into Big blind's AQ and that was it. I finished 13th in both the events.
It was fun being part of the pokerguru mentorship sessions, and I am really enjoying being part of the discussions. I have always wanted to do better online on pokerstars, and I am going to try to build a good bankroll online in the next 1-2 months.
Well, that's it for me for now. Until next time, Take her easy!!
