I have been mostly really happy with my tourney game lately. Have knocked on the door a couple times and come away short, but my decisions and timing have been generally correct. Was bolstered by the Re-buy result last night, knowing I had to tangle with some good players to get as deep as I did and knowing I wasn't out-classed.
I've hesitated to say I was on the verge of something, superstition and all, but I've really felt my game coming around. I played well in the satellite to the Six-Gun Shootout in the Desert this afternoon, making the final table and finishing 8th. And that was with HDouble and -EV on my left all day! I went out when I foolishly tried to out-draw CJ. Congrats to he and -EV for the seats.
However kids, that is not the end of the story. No, no, no. I'm here to tell you that was just the first Final Table I made on Full Tilt today. I finished 3rd in the $8K Guaranteed tonight for a cool $1200 payday. So much to say about it, but it will have to wait (or not come at all, everybody hates Hand Histories). I just...well...I did everything right.
Feeling a little vindicated. Glad I can read my game well enough to know when it's gonna pop.
