and there's very little to say about it.
I played the Mookie, slowly chipped up to about T6000 during hour two - I made more out of simply betting flops and turns, than when I flopped sets and two pairs - by hour two the only way I won any chips was by stealing them, because I wasn't catching cards or hitting boards, that's for sure - I limped into hour three, until these two hands show how much you really don't control in MTTs.
Corron10 jams UTG+1 for 2555, folds around.
I tank fold 55 on the button with 4265 b/c I just feel like it's a really thin spot for me, a flip a best.
Cmitch with a big stack calls in the BB with A9s, Corron10 shows 77.
OK, smart me, why spew on a two outer or having to fade like four overcards?
Flop QT5. ARRRRRRRRRRRRGH.
Board runs clean, I would have almost 10K if I'm in there.
Two hands later, all fold around, I open jam A9o for 4165, corron10 wakes up with TT and I don't get there, 30 of 91, pffffffffffffffffffttttttttttttt. I make one thin call, he's not even there to take me out.
No hands of intrigue tonite. 15/18 down in BBT5.
I've been thinking about taking a look at trends over the last three years - who's getting better, who's getting worse (me) - too bad FTP doesn't generate summaries like the ones Stars does when you play a MTT, I could probably plug in results and mock up a pseudo-leaderboard like AIPS does pretty quickly... :-(
Anyhow, let me try to get the mojo back through PLO8 and go again Sunday.
