My first victory in CoinPoker's tournament
I played PLO 5-card yesterday in CoinPoker and won it.
It's so cool. Actually it's a little tournament that had only 12 players but I qualified for the tournament through freeroll.
This freeroll is hard to win because you should play the Push or Fold game almost all tournament. When I realized that I would have a better chance to win if I would enter the tournament at the end of registration I started to enter at the end.
So I qualified yesterday and started to play.
There is my graph of chips during the tournament.
The tournament had 3 prize places and progressive knock out prizes.
In the middle of the tournament, when there were three of us left and the registration period was ending two more players entered the tournament in time. There were 5 of us played.
But I had a huge stack this moment.
Before two more players entered the tournament I won 3 big hands and made two knockouts.
Sorry about the hand's history. HM3 does not support 5 cards PLO and can't see players' cards.
This opponent had 3 knockouts and a big reward for his elimination. But my chips were not enough to knock out his.
My cards: 8♦ J♠ K♣ J♦ 3♣
Opponent's card: 7♣ T♦ 6♥ T♣ 4♦
I knocked out his a few hands later.
My cards: 6♣ 7♦ A♦ 8♠ 3♥
Opponent's cards: Q♣ 5♦ K♦ T♠ 6♥
After that, I won one more big hand that allowed me to get a huge stack. I made one more knockout.
My cards: 2♣ 3♥ T♥ Q♣ Q♥
Opponent's cards: 4♥ Q♠ 5♠ 5♥ K♥
At the end of the tournament, I got a bad beat. My opponent was calling station that almost always got his outs on the river. I had a nuts flush here, but he got one of two outs on the river.
My cards: K♦ 8♣ 2♣ K♥ Q♥
Opponent's cards: 5♣ J♠ 2♥ 9♥ 9♠
But I pulled myself together and won the tournament three hands later.
My cards: 4♣ K♥ 4♠ K♠ 9♥
Opponent's cards: T♣ 9♣ 8♦ J♥ 6♠
I won 3330 CHP - 1080 CHP for first place and 2250 for knockouts.
My bankroll on CoinPoker has grown significantly.
