just a suck night all around.

Damn, this night was full of disappointments....

1: Caps just get housed at home in Game 7. Down 5-0 in the second period, lose 6-2?

Jeez. They finally fell off the tightrope... the sloppy defense, the silly penalties, Varlamov finally running out of gas and magic... all came home to roost tonite.
They're a talented team. They aren't a good playoff team yet. Hope that changes in 11 months.

2: AIPS. Bounce out of the LHE tournament 69 of 106...
When it's a limit tourney with a 1500 chip stack and blinds start at 40/80... well, it's not an ideal spot... Structure afterwards was ok, but man you get short awful quick with these stacks.

Not that I played well at all - I hate LHE and was basically playing to either get a big stack or go home early. Honestly, this was one of the rare times I play a tourney and feel like I have NO SHOT to get deep.

Never got above 1700 chips and was basically playing from behind all night... and since it's Stars, I will not get there by the river no matter what I have.

Anyhow, looking at the future schedule... at least there are some mixed and high/low games coming up (8-game, Stud8, LO8) along with a NLHE $1 rebuy (yum) that should be fun in the upcoming months.

Although outside of the 8-game, we will still be running single stack tournies with nearly 100 people...

I've basically played like complete crap in the three tourneys I've played this year, not even getting halfway through the field. Gotta focus more and play better if I'm getting another banana this year.

3: 70 runners in the Mookie and I play another tournament horribly the entire way.. I'm hardly paying attention, to be honest. I just am not very locked in tonite.

I end up bleeding down to 1700 chips, raise/calling a shove with the JackAce, and holding vs. AhKh on a Jh7h3c flop to double through.

Then I spew here, and I blame Jamyhawk for flatting the initial open, which made me think a resteal shove was a wonderful idea. Dumb me. Champ's never raise/folding in this spot, especially if he's tank/calling one of the worst hands in his range.

At least it didn't matter what I had, I'm going down anyway.

Full Tilt Poker Game #12206969362: The Mookie (90360042), Table 4 - 80/160 - No Limit Hold'em - 23:23:16 ET - 2009/05/13

So after that, I shove 98o into KJo and the board runs out a straight to chop... and I shove 44 into A3 and watch the board double pair to counterfeit me and I go home 44 of 70.

What an utter waste of a night. At least it only cost me $16.50 and a couple of hours.

In the interim between now and BritBlogger, I may actually run a FTOPS event on Sunday (I wish I remembered the HORSE from last night, dammit), as I've been too busy to think about anything besides BBT4 and AIPS this week.

I'm also goofing around with some of Stars' WSOP Steps satellites, we'll see how that goes.
