So I haven't been playing that much lately - pattern has been, play well in SnGs, donk off those profits in MTTs by playing like shit.
So, Sunday night, I decide to settle in and actually play some large field tourneys... I play horrible early (anyone watching me at the MSOP HEROS event must have thought I lost my mind) - get coolered (shove an eight-high turned flush.. and get snap called by a nine-high flush) before I mini-cash in the Fifty-Fifty (and ran into cmitch, who's in way deep as I type)
and actually make a non-blogger MTT Final Table..
In for the max $31... and while I should be happy with a $1200 profit, I'm really annoyed I didn't take it down, especially when I enter the final table like this
PokerStars Game #29644870055: Tournament #171772882, $10+$1 Hold'em No Limit - Level XXI (4000/8000) - 2009/06/22 0:53:27 ET
Table '171772882 23' 9-max Seat #5 is the button
Seat 1: the FC kid (151216 in chips)
Seat 2: machland68 (503290 in chips)
Seat 3: TropiFish (318562 in chips)
Seat 4: davcp (651629 in chips)
Seat 5: Dodorox (134422 in chips)
Seat 6: 4my2boys (793715 in chips)
Seat 7: heffmike (1281488 in chips)
Seat 8: OptionDrake (549038 in chips)
Seat 9: lilnip15 (437640 in chips)
Freaking huge chip lead, and I dust a third of it off two hands in - QdJx can't get there against 9d6d on a KT7 diamond flop - and then I never really gain momentum back after that. But I really really really thought I was taking it down, and I don't like to get deep and not win.
Gotta love the 1r1a structures on Stars, though... a long, seven hour tourney, but avg. stack at the final table was over 50BB when we started - a lot of play was left late in the tourney, and that's always a nice thing...
I'll review later this week and see if there's anything of note from the tourney, other than I ran good and made some supergenius reads that actually worked for once....
But yay for night in the black...
