My aim in poker is to win a Sit N Go Jackpot and have total poker winnings of $50,000. Since the end of 2010 I have been recording my progress in this blog. Currently I am playing the Maui Jackpot Sit N Go games, working on ways to improve my win rate % and thus increase my chances of hitting the Jackpot. My profit total at 1st December 2015 is $26,377.

ICM: Incredible Chip Mayhem
Having played a gazillion poker hands online it is only now and again that something new happens which really surprises you. In this crazy hand I get a good beat late in a six man non jackpot sit n go (part of my current mini-challenge) when all the other players go all in pre-flop. This leaves me to slip into second place spot with very little effort. The incredible bit is that all five players make the correct mathematical pre-flop decision according to the Independent Chip Model.
Preflop: Kartajana is in the BB with 5 Q
fotograf1234 raises to 1295, torryak moves all-in for 1910, gwyddyon moves all-in for 2065, redickforthree moves all-in for 1875, Kartajana folds.
Flop (7370) 6 9 3
Turn (7370) T
River (7370) 8
fotograf1234 shows 4 4
torryak shows 8 8
gwyddyon shows J J
redickforthree shows A A
torryak wins 7370 with Three of a kind, Eights
A great result for me. Even better for torryak with his rivered set of eights. Two players still have a tiny amount of chips left following this hand but we are soon heads up with torryak taking the $42 first prize and me $18 for second.
