Bodog Ari

I'm Ari Engel and am also known as BodogAri online. I've played poker for a living for virtually my entire post-college life. In the last few years I have started teaching people my style and philosophy on poker tournaments. Many of them have done very well. If you are interested in getting my help, email:

First Wsop of the year

didn't go too well. Started off real good, when I got put a weak tight table and played aggresively early.

A couple of key hands early:

I got k8 hearts, and after a min raise and a bunch of callers, i call out of the big blind. The flop comes 975 with 2 hearts, and the SB checks, I check, the original raiser checks, and a shortstack bets 40% of his stack, I then reraise an amount that puts him all in. It folds to him, and he folds.

I have q4 hearts, and again there is a min raiser with a couple of callers. I come along for the ride too, and the flop is 875 with 2 hearts. I check, and then the original raiser bets and someone calls from the button, I then reraise an amount pot commiting myself, and I take down the pot without a showdown when they fold.

It gets folded to me on the cutoff and I raise the 25-50 blinds to 150 with a6. Only the BB calls, and we see a flop of j62, it goes check check, and the turn is another 6. The BB bets 300, and I make it 900 to go, she quickly calls. The river is an ace, and she bets 500, and I reraise an amount that puts her all in, she thinks for a while and folds.

I am eventually up to 6700 and end the first break at 5800. I then proceed to donk it all off, and am at home before the end of level 2. Damn, another day hopefully.

I met you in the lobby before the event today, not sure if you remember. I wish I had hands worthy of donkng off my chips with.... I took the other route and blinded away with my 2-9s and 3-9s. I would have rather gone out when you did personally instead of floating to the dinner break. Good luck in the rest of the events, I will probably be in the $2K NL event coming up, if not that definately the $2500 NL event after that.
