You know, I'd like to be as cool as these three guys, and show off an MTT win, but
- I only play 30-40 a month, so good luck beating variance with such a small sample size
- I tend to be an impatient muppet at anything over two tables, and
- it's really hard when type of stuff happens to you

I saw villain play every hand earlier in the tourney, so I knew he didn't have a damn thing.
He basically snap fourbet with JTT2 and no fold equity in a hi-low game with a one-way hand.
-90% ROI lifetime, by the way.
Yeah, well, that'll happen.
Had another one in the Stars 70K when a guy 3x opened in the cutoff, I jammed 20BB from the big blind with AQs, and he snapcalled off almost his entire stack with A3o. KK3 flop, fun times for me. How he manages to make four figures a month, I have no idea...
Twice I managed to finish 27 of 27 in a three-table SnG.
First time, I check/called all in when I decided to let a Euro bluff into my sevens on a K95 4 T board... and I got shown T5, a T5 he called a flop checkraise with... nice read me, lol.
Second time, after jamming a river which gave me Broadway, and villain a rivered boat, for over half my stack, I only had 560 chips left at 10/20. So, next hand when MP and the button limped, I figured why not jam 99 (lol 25BB preflop jam) and let them monkey call me with whatever.
Instead, they both reshoved. MP open limped AKo, button overlimped JJ, I do not spike.
These are the times I really wonder if I'm completely doing this wrong - if I should be a little muppet that openlimps a ton and waits to tarp everyone like a nit - or maybe flings poo like a monkey at everyone and calls off/jams with crap trying to spike instead.
At least it was not a disaster of a night - I cashed just enough to take a small loss for the session.
Yay me. goheffgo.
