MPT Results: May 3, 2008

Posted on May 3rd, 2008 by John Stewart

The night started with nine players trying to win the first HORSE tournament at the Lake Mendota Casino.

The first blind rounds were every 15 minutes, then subsequently every 12 minutes, cycling through each of the HORSE games:

H == No Limit Hold ‘Em
O == Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo
R == Limit Razz
S == Limit Stud
E == Limit Stud Hi/Lo

I think the only complaint was regarding the ante being a little big compared to the limits for the stud-based games; I’ll try to adjust that next time. Otherwise, I think it went really well and hope we can do it again. It was a lot of fun switching gears (having the computer tell us what were playing at all times was a big help), and none of the games were really overwhelming to those of us with little experience at them.

With what will almost certainly be the last tournament of 2007, we did another mixed Hold ‘Em and Omaha Hi/Lo.

I really enjoy that format, and am glad we could fill a game with it. It definitely keeps things interesting.

Congratulations to Britt, Sarah, and Colin!

I don’t know why the TD2 results are showing it starting at 8; the same actually started at 7, and all of this summary is off by one hour. I leave it as an exercise to the readers to adjust in their head. =)

It was the first tournament in the new Spring Harbor Casino, and we did a double header with a 6pm Turbo No Limit Hold Em game, followed by an 8pm Pot Limit Omaha / No Limit Hold Em mixed game.

The late game we split into two tables with 14 players.

In both cases, it was new MSOP players that took down the top prizes. Congratulations to Pader and Lucien. Also nice job, Kenny – the only player who managed to win money in both games (albeit at the bottom of the prize brackets).

I think the mixed format worked well and we’ll definitely be giving it another try in the future.

We ended up with seven players on the second night of our double-header weekend, and the game got under way at the usual time of 7pm. This night, we did $20 rebuys with unlimited rebuys for 2 hours for T3000 in chips (if you were broke). An optional add-on of $20/T3000 was available for players with under T500 at the two hour mark.

Sadly, this is the last game for one of our longest veterans of the MSOP… Dan is soon off to marriage, then San Francisco! Good luck in both endeavours, Dan! We’ll miss you.

Final Roster

John Stewart
Nickles Stanton
Dan Hesselson
Greg White
Jane Schneider
Robert Regan
Tim O’Brien

8:10 Nickles, with top pair on the flop got all in versus Robert’s pocket rockets and sent him to his wallet for a a rebuy.

8:16 Jane with AJ got all-in against my AQ and was in for the game’s second rebuy.

8:23 Dan with a flush draw on the flop couldn’t put me off a small pocket pair with a big reraise, and I called. Dan’s draw missed and he was in for our third rebuy.

8:53 Tim busted GregW and gr8yt was in for the game’s fourth rebuy.

9pm The cutoff time came with no more bust outs. With seven players we had eleven buyins and $220 in the kitty, for a payout of $110/70/40.

9:25 Despite a pretty good run early I was the first to bite when it really mattered. I moved against Nick’s bigger stack with a straight draw, and his AQ had hit a queen-high flop. I was done.

9:49 Tim knocked out both Greg and Jane.

9:58 Robert busted to Tim on the bubble.

10:05 Tim knocked down Dan, sending him off with 3rd place and $40.

10:13 Nick took out Tim for 1st and $110, sending Tim home with 2nd and $70.

1st ($110) Nickles
2nd ($70) TimO
3rd ($40) DanH

The $20, no rebuy, game got under way at 7pm with a full roster, the second-to-last game for at least a month (as Susanna and I will be in Italy for three weeks!).

Full Roster

John Stewart
Robert Regan
Nickles Stanton
Chris Armagost
Adam Bodette
Rob Larson
Dan Hesselson
John Cokl
Nathan Bowden
Pat Wissell

7:48 RobertR busted out to me, his bluff running into my full house.

8:27 Dan and Nathan got all-in on the flop of 4c8c6c. Dan showed down a powerful KcKd, but Nathan showed 6h6s with the set. A turn and river of 8s Th would not help Dan out and we were down to eight players.

8:48 Adam, JohnC, and Pat were in a big pot. A flop of AhKsQd prompted Pat to push with 750 more. Adam and JohnC called. After a turn of 5c, Adam pushed and John called. Pat showed KhJc, JohnC TdQc, and Adam had QhQs with the set of queens. A turn and river of 5c 4h could not help out Pat and JohnC and they were done, giving Adam the lead.

8:56 Chris chipped off his stack with Ac3h and a board of Qs8c8s6c5c on a bluff. Rob showed down QhKd with top pair and sent him packing.

9:31 With blinds up to 150/300, the chipleader Adam raised it up to 1000. I looked down to AT and sick of being bullied, pushed for 2000. Adam quickly called, showing KK, and I was soon out.

9:43 Nick pushed preflop for 2000, and RobL called. Nick showed 4h4s and was looking good against Rob’s Ac4d. A flop of 3h5s5d and the fours were holding, but then a turn of Ad and river of Qh paired up Rob’s ace and sent Nickles packing on the bubble.

9:44 Nathan pushed with 9hKc and Adam called with 6c6s and Nathan was soon done in 3rd and $40.

9:50 The chip count was approximately 5000 for Rob to 15,000 for Adam.

9:55 RobL was all-in preflop and Adam called. Rob showed down 4hKd and Adam KcQh. The queen kicker would do it and Rob took 2nd and $60 and Adam took the main prize of $100.

1st ($100) AdamB
2nd ($60) RobL
3rd ($40) NathanB
