Happiness, thy name is Titan Poker, home of the worst players on the internet.
Please don't start playing there.
For a change tonight, I decided to take a shot at a $50 MTT with $2,500 guaranteed. It looked right up to the last minute like there would be overlay, but we started with exactly 50 players. About 30 of those players did not last the first hour.
I was the uber-shortstack at the final table, with a massive 820 chips. Darned happy to make it that far, as it meant money. I managed to survive two all-ins, with JJ against K9 (I rivered a flush after a K on the turn, phew) and a three way job with A8o vs. QQ and 55 (A on flop). I knocked out a couple players and actually had the chip lead (barely) with 3 left. Didn't last long - I let myself get pushed off top pair, crap kicker for a third of my stack, and found AKo on the next hand. The BB woke up with KK and I didn't get the miracle Ace.
3rd place, plus $246. I'll take it.
