BBT3 - POINTS! - CASH! - RAZZ! (caps lock, lol)

Finally managed to sustain long enough to make the money in a BBT3 event -  83 runners tonite, I go out in 11th in Skillz. Yeah, it's a Razz tourney, which makes me a brilliant monkey flinging poo at everyone, instead of an actual thinking human player, but w/e. I needed something positive to happen for once.

Which is strange, because I spent the entire first hour getting fawked by everyone. Raise a good starter, get called in three spots and brick fourth - get to fifth with the best draw against a marginal made hand, and brick two streets so bad I can't even call the river... I bled down to 1000 chips, then slowly rallied and finally picked up a sweet hand - there's no better feeling than when you know you've got two players smoked and they're giving you their stacks because they play way too loose.

Ended the first hour 11 of 76. Ended the second hour 16 of 41, but jeez, I dropped down to almost last before spiking a couple of pots...XGod_Of_WarX was extremely interesting to play with - as I said later, he can chat better than he can play, and it's not that he can't play, so much as he pushes a LOT of thin, thin edges. like this...

Now, I know he can read a board, and knows I only have a made 9 with a redraw some of the time, and can be bluffing some of the time... But I can read his board too and HE DOESN'T HAVE ANYTHING YET - and if he does make a hand on seventh it'll only be a 9 and I can still draw underneath that. I have no idea why he's making hero calls here, unless again, he's pushing every thin edge.
Later on he tried to tell me how we both had nine high on sixth, which ignores the fact I'm made with a redraw, and he isn't. Now, I'm just going to assume he made a mistake, or misremembered the board, because no one as good as he says he is can make that fundamental a mistake and mean it.
Anyway, had 17K a little while after that, which got me through the bubble just fine, and then just went completely card-dead - bringing in a lot, and not finding a spot to play for my rapidly dwindling stack. Finally went out with 86A v. 752 AI on 3rd and bricked every street.

Hey, I may suck, and will never final table a Razz tournament according to Mr. XGod. (and honestly, though I love HORSE and the occasional Razz rotation, anyone that plays Razz tourneys regularly needs a mental health checkup, or some strong meds, or both) but I squeezed everything I could out of tonight's run, so that feels good, even if it's for, like no money and little pointage.

It's a start....
