So here I'm playing happily some 2.5 k welcome freeroll at betfair I didn't even know I was entitled to. I see 137 player 99 cash places, I say go for it.

Of course being a Welcome tournament I'm guessing I'll be up against fish, like myself. :f_biggrin: And what do you know I was right.

Now my game was a bit off to be fair, vpip a bit too high, pfr a bit too low, but at first I wasn't drawing anything and got bored. So then I start playing, I hit a couple of flops and a blind steal and I'm up 500 chips, stakes still low and I'm happy.

Then I start drawing good hands AKs with turn flush, QQ, KQs hitting 2 pair on the flop, 66 hitting a set on the flop, and I'm sitting on 4.5k chips 4th place in the tournament. With 30mins play time and just 108 players left I'm thinking 'All right, I'm looking good for a deep run here'.

Naturally here's where things go wrong. Now as I mentioned it's a fishy tournament so it goes as you might expect - a lot of loose aggression, cold calling pfr and cbets. So I'm getting pretty scared to raise preflop in any position because I keeping getting 4-5 guys limp call all the time on all kinds of trash.
So here is what happens: This guy is crazy loose like 65-70% vpip, pfr just as wide, about 30%, calls anything with anything post flop. First it starts with getting my AA cracked with a backdoor flush, with him going allin with J7s clubs on a 2.2k pot.

Next hand this happens:

note: I'm not placing in the hand evaluation forums cause I don't want evaluation. I know I messed up some, but hiss drawing is way more messed up, not to mention his betting. I'm just whining lil' bit
