YouTube poker tube video check it out in
the description below Michael hey hell
of a guy long time buddy I hit him up
and he says sure let’s play a little to
five I need some motivation I say it’s
fate you got to go with your gut as long
as you don’t have a bad feeling he’s got
to be a roll with him so he’s gonna join
us at the Venetian very soon
it’s 8:45 on a Thursday night we’re on
the strip vlogger from out of town is in
town and he wants to gamble play a
little to five No Limit at the Venetian
not one to argue so I’ll meet up with
them and see if we can have a good time
win some money maybe have a little
dinner afterwards five to five games
currently running
protip call the poker room 30 minutes to
an hour ahead of time to put your name
on the list and you’re going to wait a
lot less longer pro tip of the day with
blinds at two dollars five dollars is my
second hand at my table I had to wait
about 10 minutes to get a seat but
that’s okay don’t have any reads on the
table I’m under the gun plus one seven
handed with East three of spades raise
it up to twenty dollars only the big
blind calls Asian male sunglasses and
hat unknown age flop comes ten six three
two hearts one club we had bottom pair
he checks this flop dusted his range
very well but we’re gonna rub it over
pair and just try to bring the pot here
through about thirty dollars he puts him
to call you could have a ten you could
have a flush draw it could have a
variety of straight drives the turn is
an off suit for four clubs actually
bringing the backdoor flush draw not too
worried about that he checks I
definitely could check here but then I’d
really been lost on rivers I could be
blocked off in my hand with his missed
flush draw I miss straight draws left
hands so I want to make them making a
mistake and charge his drawers and maybe
get him to fold a six a mid pair and
maybe even a week ten I’ve got 75
dollars he thinks about it and puts in
the call the river is the king of spades
if you were bluffing with ace king we
got there but I don’t think we need to
Bluff we have reverse blockers to all
it’s straight and flush draws he checks
I don’t see a reason to turn our hand
into a block we have showdown value
against all of his miss draws we check
behind and he shows king nine of clubs
floated me on the flop out of position
turn the back door flush draw and river
top hair nice answer
race
with blinds at $2 $5 or 7 handed my
stack is now
$290 due to a few unfortunate hands I’ve
not reloaded but I got money in my
pocket I’m gonna feel all this new table
I just got moved to with action under
the Gunn Asian male makes it 20 out of
the gun plus one calls 20 on a gun plus
two calls 20 and we’re in the effective
cut off with East King off suit I
thinking about making a hundred which I
probably should do within my relative
staff size so I have a pot size bet left
if I get one caller but I’m scared money
and I have ace king and I just want to
take it down three and get zero rate so
I make it 120
accent folds around past the under the
gone past the under the gun plus one and
the over caller thinks about it and puts
in the call all right I’m just gonna
probably jam any flop the flop comes
East Jack deuce rainbow maybe flush draw
doesn’t matter he checks I shove all in
for one hundred and seventy dollars he
asked for an exact count he’s got a
tough decision he hums he Haws and he
eventually puts in the call feeling
pretty good at bout top top here the
turn is an innocuous seven and the river
is a deuce I asked who has to show first
even though I had no dam all I have to
show first since he called mal in and he
doesn’t want to show I don’t want to
show just so hopefully he shows first
dealer doesn’t want to tell me who shows
first someone at the table eventually
says yeah you gotta show first bro
I probably show my Ace King and he shows
pocket sevens nice call three nice call
on the flop he must have put me exactly
I’m king queen sometimes you got to put
your man on a hand or turn to set either
way congratulations to you Asian male
age 30 to 55 your gamble paid off
and we’re now stuck five hundred dollars
it’s nice
under the gun with pocket fives I make
it 20 get two callers big blind makes it
120 I fold seven handed I’m under the
gun I raised it to 20 with ace-queen
a viewer of the vlog who’s been very
friendly in the small blind makes it 120
I ask movie has pocket jacks if so I’ll
gamble with him for my last 300 he says
no jacks I assume I’m beat I fold
face-up and he claims he had Kings I
believe
yes a few more hands go this way and we
win one or two minut pots Knights not
going well but I’m having a lot of good
at small talk with my friend Ben my
buddy Michael hey who I invited to this
wonderful casino this already has a
qualifying high hand a queen-high
straight flush if it holds in the next
30 minutes he’s going to win $1,000
let’s get a hold
Chuck much cheaper Big Bend each rack
and stacking rare occurence there
you
