Ok, in one corner, the AIPS series, where I've won twice over the last year, the sole double banana winner....
In the other, the fourth BBT2 tournament, where I might as well just randomly bet and raise without looking at my holding...
One PLO8, one doublestack holdem. Let's see if I can get deep in either one. Ha!.
104 runners in the Riverchasers tourney. 88 in AIPS. Let er rip.
boy, that was fast. 87th in PLO8. another cooler. limped four way pot, I have AKQ5, flop comes K95. I lead out, original limper reraises pot. I don't like it but call. Turn 8, I check, he pots, I feel like I have to be behind, but call anyway. of course, he has KKJ2. dummy 1.
Level 2 of the HE event. I raise the button with K2 because I feel like it, the BB min reraises and I call., flop A52, check check, turn 8, check check. river 2, he leads for 400 into a 500 pot. I min reraise because I'm stupid instead of just calling. he shoves. I call KNOWING i'm behind and yes, get shown AA.
Oh, after that I'm short, stick my last 140 in the pot - against another AA. out in 99th.
I could not play any worse if I tried. This is why I've gone from playing 400NL a year ago to donking around in $5 SnGs now. Because I am stupid. and bad. and know I am beat, but try to make hero calls against villains who NEVER are bluffing.
Let me go beat myself up now.
