Looking for #4...

So Skillz is pretty meh early - I don't start hitting hands until close to the second break.

Of course this is the annoying thing about limit hold them - it's a game of getting to showdown and making hands, not blowing people off of pots.

Anyhow, I hit that 11pm break 5 of 39, 47 runners overall

I build up to 12K in hour three... then start whiffing/overplaying every AK/AQ type hand to get down to 2500...
but I quickly win three big pots

KK v KJ on a J high flop
AK v QQ after an 855K turn
88 v AQ on a J9x board

to get back up to 13K like nothing happened - freaking LHE variance.

I do interesting things like flop quad aces vs. ScottMc to take him out, and eventually make the final table.

Seat 1: DDionysus (13,738)
Seat 2: ElSnarfGrande (11,755)
Seat 3: pvanharibo (10,750)
Seat 4: cemfredmd (9,246)
Seat 5: heffmike (17,056)
Seat 6: Chippy McStacks (26,815)
Seat 7: hoyazo (8,317)
Seat 8: smokkee (29,348)
Seat 9: sophie2002 (13,975)

I get to run AA into Chippy's TT on a nine high flop - up to 24K

I bounce around and get up to 27K before I play the first of two shitty pots with LJ.

(ALERT! She never buys your stories, Heff. Quit trying to make her a believer. Just stop it.)

I still think I got pwned with A-high or something. Frankly, that's all I beat.
Probably should have just check/called with fourth pair anyway getting 8-1 just to be sure, and to prove I'm a showdown monkey.

After this I generally go carddead, stay quiet as the money bubble bursts..

..and then try to blow LJ off a flopped pair in limit.

To be fair, if her read is I have two overs, she's going to fast play the shit out of this and hope I don't hit.

GG me.
6th for $22.56, final table, points - that's ok in the big picture. Damn three outers, though.

heffmike (Observer): obv LJ really thinks I suck... OK, TID then.

And she did.

Obviously I really wanted #4, and I thought I was set up well for it at the final table...

but I got pwned hard, and as snakebit as LJ's been for the last two BBTs, it's well deserved...

Even when she backdoors a full house and forgets to threebet it on the river... :-)

Dealer: smokkee shows a straight, Jack high
Dealer: pvanharibo shows a full house, Jacks full of Nines
Dealer: pvanharibo wins the pot (30,750) with a full house,
Jacks full of Nines
pvanharibo: jdkfjalksdjfldasj
pvanharibo: oh
pvanharibo: i have boat
smokkee: omg
pvanharibo: bah
smokkee: wtf

Mookie time tomorrow!

lolololol. so glad i can laugh about that hand now. i really thought i lost it to a straight, was stupidly paying more attention to fringe than the tournament. hmmmm, wonder why i haven't been doing well in bbt tournaments.

i won a similar hand to the K5 when i had 55 to one over on the flop and was just praying villain (pokahdave?) had AK (which is what he had). i am always so surprised when a retarded ATo takes down a pot w/ A high after i fold a pair that i kind of went to the felt last night w/ any piece of the board.

sometimes i got lucky, like when i hit trip 5s on the turn and trip 4s on the river v. a higher pair. yay luck!

also, pls stop trying to bluff me. you only hurt yourself.
