No pudo ser :(

Me había puesto como objetivo 2 Steps4 y al final sólo pudo ser 1.

Es una lástima porque caímos en varias burbujas donde eran coinflips o partíamos con ventaja, pero así es esto...

Las manos:

Primero una de las más polémicas del único step2:

Maldito river...

Recuerdo mis reflexiones del entrenamiento:

Si en el river hago check y me apuesta fuerte (o me pone all-in) no sé si me está apostando por mi check o porque lleva el As o la Q de corazones.

Si apuesto de cara y me resube descarto un bluff y por lo menos asumo que el villano mejoró de verdad en el river...

La verdad es que tras el river es una situación horrible (encima sin posición), en el fondo no me gusta ninguna opción (ni check/fold, ni el check/call, ni el bet/fold...)

En el primer Step3 los villanos enloquecieron y sin mucho problema llegué a los 5 últimos. Eso si, al primer push a la calle.

Bueno, este no dolió mucho. Después de todo ya teníamos un Step3 asegurado y era un coinflip pero el siguiente dolió (y mucho).

Tras esquivar varias balas y aunque no se había roto la burbuja, por fin teníamos una oportunidad excelente para ponernos segundos en fichas (Step3 mínimo asegurado...)

Este hizo daño.

En el siguiente todo mal de nuevo.

Tras ir perdiendo poco a poco fichas con manos como AK o parejitas finalmente eliminado con otro AK (en este sit no gané ni 1 mano)

Ya me estaba quedando sin fold equity y pensé que el rango de call más amplio era el de la BB que calculé a ojo en un 30%.

Decidí jugarmela y la BB tenía K6s (que está dentro del 30%) y me pagó y me ganó.

De todas formas de esta no me quejo.

La clave fue perder 88 vs 94 y los 2 coinflips...

Creo que al final usaré el step4 para el Sunday Million, a ver que pasa...
