Yay - final tabled the Big Game, played really well and ran good, just rolled through the first 2 1/2 hours with a huge chip lead.
Boo - kept getting three outed at the final two tables (86 vs. Shabazz Jenkins' K8 in a limped BvB pot, all in on 86x flop, K turn for a third of my stack, went out in 7th shoving AJs over top of a preflop raise by maneki_neko's ATo, got called, T on the flop), finished 7th for only $193 instead of the $1600 out there for first.
The formula is so heavy I don't know if it was enough to get top 20 overall or not, I have a feeling I'm 21st.. :-). I knew during the final two tables I couldn't catch anyone for May's leaderboard even with a win, so that was kind of a bummer. Still, at least I leave the BBT3 on a high note heading into the TOC.
Also turned a token into T$216 tonite, so it was a pretty good night overall... but geez, I should've gotten deeper.
Thanks to Al, Hoy, Chad, Mook, and Miami Don for hosting all this stuff.
It sucked for me at first, but it was a nice ride at the end....
