The following is the third and final installment of Titan Team player Jan Bjoersland’s report on his experiences playing at the Dusk Till Dawn poker tournament in Nottingham.
It was the same structure as on Saturday, but 240 players. 27 got paid.
Level 1: A9 and limping in from the button. Fours guys were in the pot and it was ace high on the flop. Small blind starts betting and I call him all the way to the river and picked up 1,800 in the pot. No idea of what he had but a nice way to start the day.
Level 1: 66 in 7th position. Two limpers and I called. BB makes it 250 to play. All 3 of us called and the flop came: Ad 6c 3h. A pretty nice flop for me!
