      Blinds 75 - 150:

      EP raises to 300, BongBob calls with üocket JJ, a player in LP squeezes to 1200, EP folds and BongBob calls. He check-calls the flop of 9 9 4, 2 on the turn and both check, BongBob checks the A on the river LP bets 3.900 into a pot of about 6.500, BongBob raises to 11.000, LP tank-calls with AQo.


      BongBob: "I tried to represent a flush which I really could play like this. I put him on a weak hand after his check-behind on the turn and he will have the ace most of the time but I also though I may get him (as a good player) of his hand. Unfortunately the check-raise did not work out, he was tanking for a while but called with his toppair."

      BongBob dropped to 15.000 chips.

      Seatchanges for Tsubi.


      After he dropped a little in chips, he went up to 50.000.

      He got pocket KK and raised in early position, two callers behind him and and also the bigblind called, who also called two bets on the flop and turn, board was QJ23. K on the river and the BB check-raised Tsubi all-in, bad timing for him because Tsubi snapcalled with his topset, BB showed Q4o and built a nice pot for Tsubi.


      A few minutes later Tsubis table was broken up and right after he sat down, tournament director Thomas Kremser came by with another new seat draw.


      Tsubi: "New seat again?"


      Now Tsubi is sitting right next to blackmember cYde.

      Blinds 100 - 200:

      UTG+1 raises to 550, Allanon (UTG+2) reraises to 1.400, UTG+1 calls.
      Heads-Up in the flop J 4 8, UTG+1 check-calls Allanons cbet of 1.600 and donks 2.000 on the 6 turn, Allanon calls. J on the river and another bet of 5.500 by UTG+1, Allanon makes a crying call.

      UTG+2 shows pocket 66 for a turned set and Allanon mucks his hand.


      Only a few hands later:

      Allanon raises first-in to 600 on the smallblind, BB reraises to 1.625, Allanon 4bets to 3.600, BB 5bets to 6.625.
      The french dealer was not sure about a minraise or a call (because he is used to double the bet as a minraise) but the floorman cleared the situation, it was a correct minraise. Allanon shoves 18.000 all-in, BB snapcalls with AKo, Allanon shows K 5

      Good beat on the Q J 5 5 3 board for Allanon and he doubles to 38.000 chips.

      Not the best day for BongBob. He gets a lot of hands but can not really improve on the boards and when he does it is only the second best hand. He already dropped to 5.500 chips.

      Blinds 150-300:
      Allanon lost some chips against the same player in two hands in a row:

      First Hand: UTG+1 raise to 700, Allanon and the BB calls. On the Flop J 7 A all three players checks . Turn 2 and the initial raiser bet and can pick-up the pot.

      In the next hand the UTG raise again from the same player on 700. This time Allanon 3-bet to 1.800 from the CO, but UTG makes a small 4-bet and Allanon has to fold his hand.

      Apart from Mike McDonald on his left Allanon is realtively happy with his table.
