Friday Fumble

For every nice tourney win you inevitably have these...

I worked my tail off in this tourney. I recognized only 2 players made the next level in this thing and I played the tourney exactly how I wanted to. I controlled the action at the final table almost to a T. I was the chip leader most of the final 5, but when we got down to 3, I missed a step. My fatal mistake was calling an all-in bet with K high when I felt I was ahead. I was only against A rag (I think), but inevitably I lost the hand. I never recovered.

Frustrating to work many hours in a tourney and have nothing to show for it, but I really shouldn't that way about this. I gained some serious short handed knowledge from this action tonight. I feel like every day I'm starting to come into my own with MTT's (I write this after nearly 4 years of playing them).

I'm starting to find a comfort level that I want to focus on in 2007. The $20 - $100 tourneys that draw around 50 - 200 people are very juicy and can be pwned. I think that's where I will focus my efforts over the long haul.

The players at this final table were capital folks. Nary an asshole in the bunch. It felt like I was at a blogger table. I even invited them to visit this blog so they could play in the blogger tourneys (something I've never done). We'll see if any of them comment or end up at a tourney.

This was a rare *weekend* post from me. It sucked, but soak it up

Great finish, but I can only imagine the disappointment in such a strong finish but the taste of the fcking bubble.

Have a great rest of the weekend.

I edited my post. Thanks. CHeck it out, I really need your input on this one.

I agree with you. The Mansion tournaments, $1,000 added $20 + $2 are very juicy. Do you want to play one together? I finished high last night without many hands at all.

Well make up your mind, did it feel like bloggers, or was no one an asshole?

Wait, was Waffles there or not? That's the deciding factor.

I keed, I keed.

Nice work. Even with the bubble, it is nice work.

I was one of the top 2 finishers (staggerlee47). You played well. You did a good job using your big stack when you were chip leader. Thanks for not calling us assholes, also.
