Postby MJFX » Sun Mar 07, 2010 2:21 am

(READ MY LATEST POST BELOW FOR UPDATES)

Quick update on Red Dragon.

Atotal of 321 players for the event and was told 20 singaporeans took part in this tourney.
Many of them from Asia poker showdown.

The qualifers - namely myself, uncle bob and babyroti busto today.. me just before the day 2 dinner break and babyroti at the start of the day 2 session when he knocked his short stack into aces.

NKOTB still in with a shout (though below average stack at ard 6BBs) in the final 29. At bubble time ( 38 players got paid), he shove with pockets kings against a pre-flop aggro big stack (T9s) and doubled up. well done!
btw, was told there is another sg lady still in the running.

Good luck to Norbert tomorrow and hope he can go super deep and go on to become the next SG pokerstar.

the rest of kakis... will head to i love pokerkaki tomorrow for the macau poker challenge (hkd2.7k buy in). wish us luck too.


cheers

NKOTB eventually finished at 21st at the Red Dragon Main event.
He was very unlucky to be bundled out when his pocket 8s was called pre-flop all in by the massive chip leader in the big blind with J5 and Jack at the river sealed his 21st placing.

Congrats for the 21st placing! and a nice decent price money of hkd23.

Apparently SG lady ( i think her name is Jessica Lew) was busto at the same time at 22nd..

At the Macau Poker Challenge at the i love pokerkaki. Luckless Babyroti, who unbelievably went card-dead throughout the tourney was busto just before bubble time.

Uncle Bob emerged at the chip leader at bubble time (18 players remaining) when his AQ beat a fellow big stack (78s) in a preflop all in.

The pokerkaki badge/ SG flag suddenly appear on Uncle Bob's chest and poker table when he arrived at the final table as one of the 2 massive stacks. =)
Playing super super tight at the start of the final table and evading any sort of action. Uncle Bob suddenly started his killing spree knocking out the 5th, 4th and 3rd place players.

In the memorable 4th place KO hand, uncle bob was holding A9 suited when he called the all in shove by a short stack. (short stack shove at least twice in every round of hands).. naturally A9 should be good but this time he is holding the rockets. Flop was AT6, leaving uncle bob almost drawing dead. But as uncle bob put it, you have to bad beat people to win tournament, turn 8 and river 7 arrived to put uncle bob in a good position to ship the title.

he later eliminated the 3rd place player with a 88 vs 77... further proof uncle bob is on a roll as flop came 88x to hit quads!

With a 3-1 lead at the heads-up and prize money worth HKD117k for 1st and HKD64k, gutsy and admirably, Uncle bob refused his counterpart's proposal to deal. Card rush for his opponents came at a wrong time for uncle bob and he eventually finished 2nd.

Congrats to Uncle bob!
Wonderful and admirable display of poker/ sportsmanship and he was well liked by everybody at the final 2 tables, everybody was laughing and having fun as uncle bob continued to trill them with his speeches while accumulating their chips.. amazing.

And at the last event at Macau Cup rebuy side event, mjfx (myself) finished at 3rd.
This is an event tradtionally only won by singaporeans since the inception.. (feeling the stress!)
EVentually i was KO at 3rd place and when the eventual winner amazingly had Aces in 2 consecutive hands, 1st he slow played his aces, crippled me when i hit my top pair, 2nd hand finished me when i have to go all in any 2 card with 1BB left.
Nice decent outing nevertheless with a handy hkd13k.

Hopefully soon, someone will ship the next big one.
cheers

everyone here, thanks for the support.

1st, i wanna say a big "thank you" to my 3 non-pokerkaki friends that railed me thru out at the StarWorld "Poker King Challenge".

Then I have to specially mention our fellow pokerkaki MJFX, Ming Soon for his great show of support behind me, to the extend of beaching the security line times and times again to get near to the table and was warned by the security numerous times.... hahaha.

Infact, MJ was the first and only one who spotted and shouted "ST8 !" when the runner runner hit, (the "BAD BEAT" of the day, when my [Ah] [9h] lungga [As] [Ad], all-in) , the whole field including myself thought i was drawing dead after the flop.

Thank you, MJ, and i promise you a good dinner the next time we at Macau. And nice trash talking to you, kaki babyroti and of cos our kaki slkia aka sibehsuay.

Also congrats Bryan for ITM in 3 Events, Nobert ITM in Red Dragon and MJFX 3rd in $500 Re-buy.

A good start for SG Pokerkakis and definitely more to come from us in year 2010.

Many Cheers.

Uncle Bob,

actually its a little bit irritating to hear that guy kept saying "im all in" with the ABC (American born chinese) slang... And when he showed his aces, i rmb him saying something like "show you my rockets"........... :o **Jaw dropped.**

There is a reason why we should never "sia lan" with aces preflop just in case get bad beat really dun know how to hide. i think he will remember this for a long long time. :lol:
