Well, I either burned up all my rungoot or just set the table for the next few weeks.
Played 3 SnGs before I went to bed.
1/9 in one PLO8 tourney.
3/9 in another, where I went from 66% of chips in play to out in 5 very cooler hands.
Ended up having to put BabyGirlHeff down in the middle of this run - kind of nice reading her a story about Winnie-the-Pooh's colors while coasting through a 90-man. She fell asleep with about two tables left, and I took it from there.
I did make some nice coolers hold, KK over QQ, AA over 99 on the final table bubble - but had to zig and zag for a while as the short stack four-handed, but we were still deep (I had 20BB) for a 90-man so I had a little bit of time.
I got the worst player at the table to double me up twice (TPNK vs. the flopped nizzles, and an A5s vs. A7o hand where I had the nut flush draw on a AQ7 flop and binked it), went heads up with a slight chip lead, and crushed within 20 hands to finally close out a NLHE tourney for the first time in a while - even in SnGs I usually finish first in PLO8 and second in NLHE.
So, yeah, I'll take +787% ROI for 2 1/2 hours work, sure.
And one other thing - doing this is soooo much easier than taking down a BBT tourney.
Sure, there are still meh players out there - but as a whole, bloggerdom has gotten a LOT better at tournaments over the last few years. Even the worst blogger doesn't make half the mistakes you see at the $20-$50 MTT/SNG level all the time, night after night.
But hopefully I can catch a few boo-boos during
The Mookie at BDR.
and make something great happen as we hit the halfway point of BBT5.
