Regfest Video

I was approached by Artanis11 a few days ago about the possibility of getting together with 8 other regular PokerStars full-ring no limit cash game players to do a video. Basically, the idea being that all sit at a few tables together and then each record our session on video with commentary to share with the other eight players.

I had a few reservations about it all. Mainly that I would never sit at a $200nl table filled with 8 tough players and also that a lot of these guys usually 16-24 and cutting back to 4 or 6 is going to change their games a bit. I thought it would be an interesting experience and I might get something out of it though so I agreed to participate.

I wasn’t all that happy with how my video came out. I didn’t have all that many interesting spots, I was pretty card dead for a while there. The two big pots I played were when I had KK and Artanis11 had KK and also I feel like I made a bad call down with AK on an A9336 board when TehBluffman showed me quads. By the river it was just extremely unlucky he was bluffing or value shoving worse given the line he had a taken and me not looking like I was going to fold.

The highlight of the video was definitely this one, although it was close as there were a few other sick calls. This one is pretty amazing on every street really, I think Yada’s call out of the blinds is pretty loose, but I guess he had a plan to check/raise any flop. SubV’s instincts were correct on the flop, he knows Yada likes to check/raise so he decided to float. SubV decided that if he check-raised the flop light he’d probably barrel the turn and give up on the river I guess so he decided to call the turn planning to shove the river if checked to. It seems like Yada decided at the last minute that it felt like he was getting bluffed and made a pretty sick call.
