I promised myself--and Le Blog--that I wouldn't post any screen shots of tourney finishes unless it was a win.
Regardless, I'm very pleased with my finish in the (Not So) Crazy Re-Buy last night, that being the later one with only 441 maniacs, as opposed to the Prime Time Version of thrice that many.
So, I give you this:
PokerStars Tournament #11805630, No Limit Hold'em
Total Prize Pool: $17610.00
Tournament started - 2005/09/02 - 01:30:00 (ET)
You finished the tournament in 4th place.
A $1,232.70 award has been credited to your Real Money account.
It. Is. ALIVE!
I made one truly horrible play on the evening, allowing myself to get pushed off a better hand by being passive with TT with only one overcard (King) on the board. I take the pot with just the slightest hint of aggression. As was, I folded on the river when a 9 paired, thinking his all-in meant he hit it. He had 33. Ugh.
That dropped my stack about 30%, but I got it back soon enough.
And aside from that, I played perfectly, especially in regards to continually laying down solid, but second-best hands. No, "Aw fuck it" calls tonight, baby.
The only downside is it's 3 a.m. I get up at 5. Maybe.
More tomorrow...er...today. Maybe.
