So, uh, that wasn't as fruitful as the series has been for me so far...
I spewed a lot early, mostly to VeryJosie , who I put the SuperBounty on b/c she had to repeatedly call me out this week...
She valuetowned me early with AQ v Q8 while I was defending my blind and the Q hit the turn - I got it back making a nut flush vs. her really weak top pair - then I took a chance trying to take her out with 44 vs. AT when she jammed over my raise for 17BB and she hit the river.
After that, I just hung out for 30 minutes until this brilliance...
The easy call is, I got HEFFED.
The real call is, at least when I do this stupid shit, I raise and jam and make people call off, not flat OOP for almost 1/2 effective stacks with 64s.

To be honest, it's one of those specific spots where I'm going to get it in no matter what given stack sizes and opponents, so whatever, I can't complain. Most of the time this works out for me, especially when the Queen on the turn puts me ahead of like ALL of pushmonkey72's range - but that'll happen, out 35/42.
Oh, and FU WAFFLES for calling this in advance, fucking Nostradamus. Go play some chess. :-)
Thanks to Jamyhawk's run - Team Fish had to vote another teammate off. and they bounced Hoy - which is just so appropos. Period.
Of course, then I spewed 2-3 BI at 100NL Rush by having people spike runner runner with overpairs vs. a flopped top two pair... not once, twice, but three times. - which, if you run the numbers, is really hard to do 3/3 times. Just the other day I mentioned I only had one losing Rush session all year, which was just asking for the anvil to fall on my head....
This is probably why I don't play cash games all the time. I expect bullshit/run bad in tourneys, but not so much in cash. Which should really be the complete opposite of normal expectation... and probably why I've always been a better tourney player than cash - my mindset just deals better with the swings.
Anyhow, let me try and make it back playing randoms instead of bloggers and get my head right for the first multi-entry tourney I'm ever going to play Sunday night....
