and finis.....

So I play kind of loose and bad in the first hour of the Big Game, in between my connection flopping in and out, and make the break with 4500 in chips, 34 of 45, with 49 runners...

People were making a lot of moves at this table - shoving flops with K5o, five-betting all in pre for 90BB with a suited hammer... I end up doubling through to 7800 with this hand..

I never really get past this stack size, though... I run into flopped flushes twice in multiway limped pots preflop - once with my Queen-high flush vs. the nut flush, and once with my nut draw that doesn't get there against an 8 high flush.

Anyhow, I end up coolering myself again when willwonka opens UTG with a 6K stack at 100/200, and I shove AKo for 20BB despite the nagging feeling this is a bad idea in this spot. Sure enough, he calls with KK and I'm not even drawing live, and don't spike to bounce in 31st.

So after knowing I needed a big last week of the BBT4, I end up with one minimal points finish. Bleh.

Looks like Jordan managed to rally and snatch the May leaderboard from QueensUp with a 3rd in the Brit Blogger earlier today... Meanwhile, the overall leaderboard is still pending on what TJ does later in the Big Game, as is my final spot (waiting for Shabazz Jenkins to bust, pls, k, thx)

So it ends... Will ponder the overall series and my performance once the final standings are out this week.

I'll probably take it easy this week playing - I'll show up for the Mookie but not sure what else past that. I'll just get prepped for the TOC next Sunday, and will probably run the $650 Stars WSOP satty as well (I've got enough W$ to do this) and put all my eggs in one evening's basket.. :-)

Disappointing final day for both of us.

Good series Heff.
