      Hi guys,

      Thanks for joining me for last week's Xmas Cracker coaching - we'll be running the last installment next Monday 22nd December at the same time (7pm CET) focused this time on final two tables / final table spots.

      I'd like to invite you all to post hands from late stages such as final two tables and of course final table spots. Please specify any stats or reads / dynamic when you post. The best posts will be short-listed for a winner, and the top contributor will be featured in a guest spot discussing hands in one of my upcoming coaching videos in January :)

      If you'd rather post a hand anonymously please just PM it to me and I'll include it with your name listed as Hero. I welcome all hands, from spots where you crushed, to spots where you were crushed!

      Whether or not you choose to post a hand, please feel free to join us next Monday for some cracking tournament analysis!

      Good luck on the grind this December,

      LuckyLuke

      SB: 16,024 (16 bb)
      Hero (BB): 10,077 (10.1 bb)
      MP: 20,277 (20.3 bb)
      CO: 44,049 (44 bb) (23/19/5 - 48hds)
      BTN: 14,056 (14.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A T
      MP folds, CO raises to 2,000, 2 folds, [color=red]Hero ???

      FT 'bubble' of a 180man - I think iirc, this was an icm fold when I checked it in HRC, but it was one I was a bit confused about as we are very short-stacked,villain is on the looser side of TAG, and we are 5-handed so seems tight to fold our holding to me here

      thoughts please?

      Hi Luke - I don't really have any FT hands worth discussing in my Db unfortunately - the few final tbls I have are pretty std aipf hds really, but I did see this amazing (nlh) hand go down in the recent FTOPS 10 game FT, which might be suitable to talk about???

      It features some play/thinking that is on another level, from one of my 'heroes', Mark Herm especially at the stack-depth:
