Played in the Deepstack as I prepare for The Main Event. The structure is great, starting at 25/25 with thirty minute blinds.
Started out fine but had a guy on my right playing like a maniac. His bet sizes were way out of line and he bet me off a couple of hands that I probably should have called.
At the 75/100 level I lost a bunch of chips when my set of tens was cracked by a rivered set of jacks.
I kept getting small pairs, threes, fours and sixes. I had to see a flop and none of them grew up and the flop was always some variation of AKJ. It was brutal. I won a few small pots but couldn’t get any traction. I had thirty big blinds on the button when the first to act raised to 1200 when blinds were 25/150/300. Surprisingly five people called. I look down and see A♦A♥. I raise to 6000 and the initial raiser goes all in with me covered. I call and he turns over tens. Sure enough he flops a ten and I’m out. Ouch.
Variance is a bitch.
