no, that's not a cooler... this is a cooler...

So I'm running the 50-50 last night - actually doing well, but then spew half of a 30K stack right around around the bubble trying to impress a couple of railbirds who couldn't stop talking about how bad I was - so I obliged by making some godawful threebets instead of just muting chat and playing normally. Silly me - it was entertaining, but not +EV.

I nit up and get myself back to around 25K when this happens.

So I bounce in the 110s, something like that. That'll happen.. but hopefully not that often. :-(

And here we go, in the "Heff just says F-it" part of the show.

Hand 1 - big stack is to my right and is open limping a ton because he's got like 17K and covers the table. I've been overlimping just as much behind him because he's shown the tendency to 1) slowplay big pairs and 2) call OOP with anything as deep as he is, which has created a lot of problems.

He open limps in MP at 150/300/25, I reraise to 1325 with an 8700 stack and holding 44. All folds back around to him. He tanks, and reraises to 8700 on the dot. I tank and decide to flip vs. his overs and call - because he'll never do this with a big pair, right? - but he shows QQ. FML.

But I flop a 4 anyway - board runs out with two aces and three diamonds on it as well. Boy I suck.

Hand 2 - comes like 20 minutes later, same table - so you can say my image is a little loose. I have been opening quite a few pots with the goods and getting snap folds - so I am waiting for the inevitable threeball to keep me in line.

Folds around to me on the button with 17K, I open to 1375 at 250/500/50 with 22.
Villain in the small blind, who has seemed solid, threeballs me to 3250 with a 6k stack.

Something in me just feels like this is such cheese, especially because I think this guy is good enough to pull this off - and I don't mind flipping vs. whatever junk he's making a move with. I minreraise him back, and as soon he doesn't snap shove I know this will get ugly. He gets it in with Q6s, the board runs out AKTA5 because deuces never loses and I get to hear about how bad I am again.

So anyhow, I actually am getting good at building a stack in MTTs.
What I need to do is get better at sustaining it once I get to 2x, 3x average.

In the meantime, the wife and I are heading to Tuesday night's U2 concert at the Dannydome/Mailbox here in DC, where apparently we'll be stuck in traffic for eight hours.

Hopefully babygirlheff digs the show, but not enough to make an early appearance... :-O
