Continued a small upswing by actually final tabling and cashing in the Mookie last night... Pretty simple run, make some hands, win a flip or two, take advantage of the fact that everyone thinks I'm a bluff monster so I can valuebet or call down with relative ease... I get a decent chip lead with four to play and then make a pretty silly mistake in a limped BvB pot.

Now, it looks pretty silly C/Ring and donking into the virtual nutz... and I'm not sure why I didn't just call the turn and evaluate the river - but obv I thought I could get a hero call from an overpair or a fold from a weak club - which is silly because Bone is doing neither as played.
Naturally, I don't do anything stupid without making trips on the river - which really shouldn't change anything regarding relative hand strength, but somehow I got it in my head that I could be valuebetting there. Not sure there's really any holding Bone gets to the river with that would make setting him in a smart play. Of course, given recent history, of course he has AA there, what else do I run into in the Mook?
Anyhow, soon after that we get three-handed, he minraises his button, I ship 13BB with 88 from the blind, he snaps with QJ and I lose the flip to finish third.
Good run regardless.
