How I won $16,000!


the win $230 rebuy big getting upwards
of 200 entrants it’s really booming how’s business booming finally the word
is getting out that this is the best tournament of the week in Las Vegas it’s
a one-day event structures great some say the structure is too good but I’m
all about that value the rake is low the service is excellent let’s get in there
and win all the ships arrive at the Wynn at 2 o’clock and there is up to a 1-hour
wait come on once again unbelievable the whole room
is completely packed with tournament players and cash game players every
table is taken and it’s rebuy so it’s less likely people are gonna bust and
leave I’ve got about an hour to spend at the wind / encore property not the worst
place to hang out let’s make the best of it and do something one hour later with blinds edge 300-400 I’m under the
gun plus one with king queen offsuit make it nine hundred to go the button
calls and both the blinds call we’re four ways to a flop flop comes Jack nine
four two spades checks to me I decided to check in hopefully peel off a free
card or back jam on the button the button does not check you bet 1600 so
when the small blind calls great spot for realizing our max equity with the
two overs nut flush draw and B D F D backdoor flush draw shove all in for
fourteen thousand one hundred ships original RAZR on the button goes deep in
the tank and calls it off we have about the same stack small blindfolds button
shows jack ten of clubs the turn is a four and the river it’s a jack not a
good card for us and we rebuy $200 but blinds ants three hundred six hundred
out of the gun makes it 3x eighteen hundred VIP on my right is playing
almost every hand and is in for multiple rib eyes call six hundred but of course
it’s 1800 so it just doesn’t even know it’s the hell’s going on so he’s forced
to call the 1800 I’m next to act with pocket kings two red ones fifteen
thousand chips or maybe a little less so I put in the three bet seven thousand to
go under the gun calls and VIP I’m I write folds flop comes eight six deuce
two hearts under the gun checks I shove for sixty eight hundred on
he calls with pocket sevens with the seven of hearts the turn is the five of
hearts will he hit a straight flush the rivers of five of diamonds he does not
hit a straight flush and we double up 30,000 ships with blinds at 600 1200
action folds to local aggressive Asian woman who opened shoves for 70,000 I’m
in the big blind with East Jack offsuit in 26,000 pretty close I mean just over
20 blinds we want to call it off with East Jack here I got somewhat of a live
Reed I got to go with my live Reed I make a disciplined fold face up and she
shows me East Queen dodged a bullet and I’m now on dinner break with a forty
thousand chips coming back with 20 blinds let’s enjoy a meal with a viewer
over the blog with wines that one thousand two thousand I have 43 thousand
I’m a middle position with pocket jacks making five thousand to go action pulls
to the cutoff a tight player that check back turned in river with top top once
he snapped jams sixty thousand action folds back to me can I pull jacks here I
think we got a gamble put him in put his range on something like ace Queen Plus
tens plus so he put in the call and he does have East King suited let’s hold
flop comes King high turns a Brit and the river is the two outer that I need to survive we
got a big double over 90,000 now the blinds at 1500 3000 Caucasian male aged
70 raises to 6000 under the gun it could be ace another elderly Caucasian male
who I’m real friendly with snap jams 73,000 in middle position we’re in the
small blind with pocket jacks love pocket jacks we have 110 thousand my
read on the 73k Jam is that he’s pretty tilted he had over 200k a little while
ago and keeps getting out kicked in some pots so his range might be pretty wide
if we eventually shove under the gun folds middle position 73k guy has pocket
tens pop comes 9 8 3 turns a 7 and the river is a deuce we now have two hundred
thousand chips two hands later I opened to 7000 with pocket kings in
the cut off button shoves 80,000 or so of course we call he has King jack of
spades let’s hold the flop comes five three deuce two spades
I feel like an underdog in this situation the turns are seven of clubs
and the river is a nine of hearts patience pays off
we’re here with JT welcome to the vlog and we’re at about two hundred and sixty
thousand going to I believe three thousand six thousand about thirty three
players remain twenty pay twenty thousand dollars for first let’s get it but blinds that what’s up editor Chris
here that’s me please subscribe to the
channel and like the video because if you don’t just gonna come to your place
and kick your four thousand eight thousand I’m on the button with the old
nine eight off suit make it sixteen thousand to go both players in the
blinds call flop comes nine nine seven two spades feels good man they check to
me I bet small to induce from any straight draws flush draws 7x combos
twenty two thousand is the bet small blind folds I’m disappointed and then
the big blind says those two words he’s all-in for one hundred and sixty
thousand I snap call of course he has East seven he’s drawing almost dead the
turn is a six and he’s out I now have a stack of five hundred and seventy
thousand chips feeling great we’re approaching the bubble let’s put on some
pressure one eternity later him nice but blinds at eight thousand sixteen
thousand under the gun just lost a big pot and his lips of sucks under the gun
that guy’s the worst I’m next to act with pocket jacks you
know I can’t lose with pocket jacks in this tournament so I pump it up to
60,000 14 players remain action folds to a fifty five to six year old Caucasian
male in the small blind who thinks about it and shoves all in for two hundred and
thirteen thousand ships folds back to us we got a snap call we got them well
covered three hundred K behind we call he shows pocket nines let’s hold the
flop comes ten eight for the turns of seven for the open ended sweat but we
got the jacks blocked and the river is a six and a few table mates winced at the
unlucky run out and we lose four hundred and fifty thousand shit pot gotta win
those but blinds at ten thousand twenty thousand ten people remain we came back
from the devastating Jack’s verse 9s hand yeah it was a rough one and we’re
staying aggressive holds us on the button we got the ten three of clubs
great hand on the button we make it forty five thousand chip leader on our
left folds and a fan of the vlog defends his big blind the flop comes seven four
three two clubs bingo bango bongo Vince he checks to us of course we could check
back for a little deception try to get the showdown with our bottom pair or
disguised flush but I decide our stack sizes are perfect I can bet forty five
thousand if you check raises like 140 I can shove my for seventy-five and still
a fullback buddy and really make him doubt his decision he’s been very
aggressive and he’s been getting away with it so I bet forty five thousand and
he quickly makes it one hundred ninety five thousand what the hell’s going on
here am I about to effectively call it off with bottom pair on the final table
bubble we might have fold equity I have hope
he could have a flush draw or a favorite you could just have a naked 70 folds
over flip it against sometimes in life you have to be willing to die in order
to live we shove all in and he folds we take it down bottom pair
putting it all on the line and we’re now at the final table of nine with 700,000
chips we have reached the final nine $20,000 up top there’s no reason we
can’t win it let’s stay focused we’re middle of a pack stack let’s pick our
spots and use our knowledge of ICM jumps to our advantage
few shorties go out we I now have seven remaining we see an epic cooler of Ace
King suited versus aces and we’re now six handed with blinds at fifteen
thousand thirty thousand action folds to us in middle position I look down at Ace
King five hundred and twenty thousand ships holy one move here no reason to
raise call with ICM pressure we shove it all in there’s three people shorter than
us action falls to the small blind who has two hundred and twenty K and he puts
in the call for heads up against pocket kings
let’s hit an ace one time the flop comes King high that’s a problem and we double
him up the guy on his right is cheering for him and I tried to explain to him
nicely that you kind of want him to lose the very last hand before break were
still six handed action folds to the button big stack he makes it 65,000 I’m
in the small blind with pocket kings finally we waited for it and we got it
we shove all in for two hundred and sixty thousand elderly Caucasian male
and the big blonde goes in the tank we’re praying for a call but he
eventually pulled a white guy it’s a old white guy I described everybody equally
original RAZR puts in the call he has a Sten
dear God no ace okay but blinds at twenty forty thousand
we’re now four handed I have about seven hundred thousand and I opened rip it
with ace-queen offsuit small blind goes into the tank and calls it off he has a
stack and we got some video Oh three-handed my opponents our heads up
in a pot ace ace deuce x board and they somehow get it all in the deer says do hold and renow heads up
with 5.7 million in play I have about 1.5 million and he is 4.2 million of
course I offer an even chopped 16 K each he considers it for a second and then
counters with 15,000 17,000 a pretty fair deal I think my ICM is close to
14,000 and I eventually say 15 560 and 5 you got a deal he proceeds to win about
10 pots in a row and then he declines the deal so we’re
playing or playing for the win eventually I’d Windell down to 1 million
and he has 4.7 million I say okay I’ll do 15 you get 17 we’ll call it a day he
now reconsiders he wants to play for all oh we can play for it all
the very next hand I put on my sunglasses he open shops and she’s been
doing a lot and I looked down at King Queen 20 blinds we call he has 910 off
and here’s the video we play for a few more hands and of
course I just lose all the hands he’s very fearless to say the least and
that’s not a good thing heads up for me I want my opponent to be very timid weak
passive so I can run him over he’s doing the running over I’m not picking up any
hands and so when I have two million chips I’m gonna make him an offer he
can’t refuse I offer up the even shot 16 each he thinks about it and says okay if
I get the trophy we got a deal well there is no trophy but you can have the
official Twitter victory here’s the pic he gets $4 extra and we have a deal in
for 530 out for 16000 only at the wind best casino in Las Vegas
hashtag boycott venetian play at the wind in for five hundred and thirty
dollars out for $16,000 – tip I always tip well at the wind / encore I mean
they really treat me like a king I debated even coming here today because
I’m lazy and I could just play online at a CR but in the end I really appreciate
just how nice the staff is you got to see it to believe it along with all the
players that come here specifically to play this tournament really means a lot
when they come up to me and say you know thanks for the recommendation love the
vlogs thanks for the videos feels great man overall great day could have played for
the win but like I said very aggressive high variance so we’ll take it
16,000 favorable chip-chop gotta take that deal big shout out to the rail
