Well That Was Fun

alt hed: Now I remember why I've really started to hate multi-table tournaments

I missed almost all of the first hour of Dr. Pauly's tournament, arriving home maybe ten minutes before the first break. After a quick trip through the blinds I had 720 chips.

A blind steal, followed by another. I busted a shorty - even shorter than me - when he called my TT shove with KQo and didn't hit. I wasn't up to average at that point, but I was getting there.

And then it was time for the Degree be-careful-what-you-wish-for moment:

Hijack raises. Cutoff reraises all in. I'm on the button with AA. I shove over the top for not much more (duh). The big blind has everybody covered and he shoves. Hijack folds.

AA vs. QQ for the big blind vs. 99 for the cutoff.

Do you really think aces won? That I picked up enough chips to get into the top 20 with more than double the average stack?

Uh, right. Can I interest you in this fine bridge?

So anyway I busted in the middle of the pack and got a good night's sleep. Time to surf around and see who is Borgata bound.

Good times.

Glad to hear the whole tourney was rigged.

I busted w/AA vs. AQh. One heart on the flop, then runner-runner to pick me off.

Love this game.
