Ahhhhhhhhhh

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.

POP!

Nice hit. Next time, please don't raise my BB late in the tournament. Or please do not have A K.

thank you

I knew you'd hit it big after watching the play of those who were left.

Congrats man.
