      So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!

          What about Ivey? Before last year he finished in the top 25 3 out of the 4 last years. Thats pretty impressive.

              Man this was tough..

              Andy Bloch


              Andy Bloch made a pre-flop raise of $2,800 and the player in seat no. 7 made the call. The flop came K 9 3, and both players checked around. The turn brought the Jd and Bloch bet out $5,000. Seat no. 7 re-raised and moved all-in, Bloch called (Seat no. 7 had Bloch covered). Seat no. 7 turns over A 10 for the ace-high flush and Bloch showed K K for top set. The rover brought the 4 and Andy Bloch was eliminated halfway through Level 3.

                I've read a few articles recently saying how Ivey really does have much interest in tournament poker considering he makes more in cash games.

                  Thats a tough way to to lose but Bloch can't be to upset since it wasn't really a bad beat.

                    Well, when I flop a set I don't expect to lose. I'd consider it a bad beat. That's just me.

                      He didn't bet the flop, the turn brought a 3rd diamond and he raised and the guy re-raised all in. Its a bad read by Bloch not a bad beat.

                      • Seriously Bloch should have bet high on the flop especially with the chance of diamonds out there

                          Like I said, bad read not a bad beat. Thanks SuperKevin!

                          • I think Block made the correct move checking the flop. He was trying to trap his opponent, hoping he didn't have diamonds, and he planned on betting the turn no matter what came, even if it was a K.

                            He probably put his opponent on AQ, AJ, AT, TT, 99 (tough to put ur opponent on a set though when you flop one because that is so rare), 88 or 77.

                            As long as your opponent doesn't have diamonds you are good and checking the flop makes you look weak. You don't want to bet there and scare off a hand. If your opponent has QJ or JT then he has a gutshot and an 8% making it on the turn (16% total with 2 cards to come).

                            HOWEVER, if there was already a lot of money in the pot, then I think it might be correct to bet the flop, but since there as only 6k in the pot preflop (appx), then you have to check it. You only have a 17.5% of turning a flush assuming all 9 diamonds are still in the deck. Sometimes, it is correct to make a big bet making yourself actually looking weak (reverse psychology) so your opponent puts you on QQ, JJ, or AQ, and thus letting them making a big bet back at you and assuming you don't have a K.

                            Bloch made the right play, just a sick turn.

                              Again, it was a BAD READ! When the guy re-raised all-in with 3 diamonds on the table you got to make the flush read. Bloch didn't and lost, plain and simple!

                                Lol, ya, its not like he didn't have outs. I think it is about a 20% of pairing the board on the river. 10 outs is quite a bit.

                                Also, there is a lot of hands Andy can beat here: QQ, 99, 33, JJ, Adjx (meaning he had the nut flush draw with jack of spades, clubs, or hearts). A pair of kings (or two pair Ks and Js) is less likely since it would be the the case king.

                                If his opponnet made a dumb move and just smooth called the pf raise with QQ and a K comes up on the flop then that is scary and so he checks behind Andy. Andy checked the flop making himself look weak, so now the player thinks his QQ is good if he has it.

                                There are a lot of hands Andy can beat here, he knows this. Even if he is beat he has a lot of outs.

                                In tournament poker, you just cant fold every time you are behind and have committed a large amount of his stack in the pot, which Andy did. He has to draw out to win the big pots. I am not saying you should count on draws at all, but when you are highly committed you have to. You dont win tournaments playing short stacked poker for a lot of it.

                                Andy probably knew he was up against a flush, but it made mathematical sense to put ur money in on the FH draw.
