Aussie Millions Main Event - Day 1C

I played day 1C of the main event today and finished the day with 35,850 in chips. It’s a little below average but with the blinds starting at 400/800/100 tomorrow and the levels being two hours long I still have plenty of room to manoeuvre.

The day got off to an inauspicious start when I lost 4,000 on the very first hand. I thought Tony Hachem might, just might, be good enough to fold a face-up pair of tens on a ten high board to heavy action but apparently not. I was down to as low as 13,000 at one point but with a very slow structure I was never really worried and managed to rebuild to and hover around 20,000 for most of the day.

For the last level and a bit I was moved to the feature table which contained Michael Binger, Joe Cassidy and Clonie Gowen. Unlike at my first table, the players here actually had a fold button so I was able to chip up nicely with some steals preflop and some continuation bets postflop.

Tables will be redrawn tomorrow so hopefully I get a nice table draw and can continue to build my stack without too much risk. Until then, I better catch some shut eye. Night.

Did you really believe that Tony would fold TP?! :)

Good luck for the rest of the series.
