Boy am I playing some damn good poker. Made a final Table today at Full Tilt, finishing 8th in the $30+$3. Good thing too since only the Final Table paid. Now, you may be askiing yourself how I can say I'm playing so "damn good," if I only finished 8th? Well, lemme tell ya. I was the chip leader in the tourney from the middle of the second hour to the middle of the third hour, playing my funny ass off and dominating the proceedings. In the middle of that third hour, with only 12 players remaining, I re-raised with my Pocket Aces. I was re- re-raised by a Donkey, who obviously had Kings or Queens. I swear to Buddah I damn near folded those Rockets. I'd still have been left with 19K chips and in the top 3. Instead, I called and saw her River the set of Kings on me, dropping me to 6K. I basically folded into the money from there, not trusting myself (or a certain fast growing online poker room) to get involved.
Can I possibly NOT get majorly fucked late in one of these tourneys? Could I possibly have a hand hold up late when I'm buzzing the top? I'll fucking settle for once. Once.
