Weird
PaddyPoker 'welcome back' freeroll
250 entrants
I get sat at a table with 1 other guy and 8 sitting out
So we start sharing out the blinds, folding primo when it's not our turn, stealing with rags when it is, etc.
At one point somebody turned up and didn't get the idea, but luckily we disposed of him. and he was replaced by another sit-out...
So we chopped them up until they were getting forced all-in.
Then the empty seats were filled with people who were there and e had to start to play, but the break arrived.
We're in the top 10, not really having had to play at all so far. 30 places pay. We're 96 from the bubble.

Looks like some network problem stopped all bar around 50 turning up, from the way the stacks were spread.
Now at 2nd break, last 3 tables, bubble just broke.
The money's derisory of course.
And I'm getting mostly rags...

2 (3?) hands after the break I decide to raise with Q/J from mid position.
2 callers.
Flop AKT rainbow. I have the nut straight.
Guy to my right bets a shade over 4k, I pretend to think it over and push, and extra 2k or so.
Snap overpush from the guy on my left, quick call from opener.
Lefty has Q/J too, righty has TT.
Turn's a rag
River's an A, giving righty the boat and a commanding chiplead for the whole thing.

A shade over 2 hours, $1.68

Oh, that reminds me. Seeing as you know everything about, like, everything... Are there any books you'd recommend on strategy for low-ish stakes NL Hold Em? Either cash or tournament.

"Top book" seems to change regularly. Harrington On Hold'Em is well thought of.
Not sure for tourneys - the big MTTs are very different to the S&Gs, too.
Have a look at relevant threads on thehendonmob.com or twoplustwo.com
