Here is the situation. I’m in a poker tournament multi table. The stakes were $ 150 + a registration fee of $ 12. So I have $ 162 wrapped up in this game.
My friend calls to the right when the game begins. In the major poker tournaments, usually only play hands. So I thought I could talk a little when I double or 20 times, and aftercare. This was my first mistake. You should look at everything carefully, as one who has lost his hand in the hand after the slaughter. Look at how people behave in general. You cannot do these things efficiently, while you’re distracted. Here are the details.
I am the small blind. The blinds are 10-20, because we are in a very early stage of this game. For the same reason, the distribution of the chip 10 players at the table was rather flat.
Dealt to me
The player in first position calls 20. Everyone else folds until it gets to me. I don’t consider to be a premium hand, but I called 10 to get in, expecting the big blind to check, 3 players in the hand, and one who is only there because because their chips were already paid.
Instead, the big blind raises 205. I was leary of the player who called in first position to start with. My hand needed to improve on the flop for me to have any interest at all. Here are the mistakes…
First mistake, if I’m going to play crap like in the early stages of a tournament and in late position, I should have raised it a little in an attempt to get the big blind to stay out of the hand.
After the big blind raised 205, the player in first position folded.
The second mistake, I’m always on the phone with my friend. It is also a poker player. At this point, I am arrogant and have fun, because it speaks of poker. I put the big blind (who traveled 205) all-in doubled since I was risking my tournament in hand; I do not care much to begin with. The big blind calls my all in, I would like to bend, but moved and flame.
