The success story on Boyle poker continues, I played the £15 rebuy on DTD for a seat at the next 321 weekend main event, I go out of this just after the break when I jam it in with A 10 suited on the bb to a 5 limped pot, AQ calls me flopping two queens leaves me drawing dead. I check out Blue Square but there are no GUKPT sat’s so I decide to play the freeze outs on Boyle.

$2k Guaranteed, $5 + 50c, 529 runners $2645 in the pot.

I play ultra aggressively early on, raising mid position with hands like 85 97 67 following through with continuation bets, hitting the flop every 4 / 5 times, I get chipped up so I start to slow down playing my big pairs 9s+ by shoving and coming second best just once, QQ v 88 with an 8 on the turn. I make final table, using my notes I isolate a couple of players who appear to be weak and as I have position on them I target their blinds as they increase.

Three handed and we get a massive cooler hand, I cant get away from the flop, all the money goes in on the turn, my set of kings are looking very dominated against Hugo’s full house 4s/ks – I shout K, J, 5 at my 14” screen and am duly rewarded with a 5 on the river, 790k in play and I’m now sitting with 530k of them, I keep the pots low now playing the flops, picking my spots carefully to claim another victory. I also cashed in another 2 tourneys so at the moment Boyle is working for me.

How about Turn J river K to give you the straight with AT v AQ on the QQx flop?

and just to be pedantic K5 on a KK4 flop is not a set of kings but trip kings. To have a set you need pocket kings in the hole and hit one on the board.
Nice river though.
