There It Is!
Not my biggest cash, not a big field, but a win. A bleeping win!
For once, I got to play some Big Stack Poker. Went on a rush of cards with about 25 left, moving to the top of the heap. Down to two tables I took a ton of blinds and antes off short stacks trying to edge into the money. I began the Final Table second in chips and busted a couple players. We got to three-handed, all of us reltively even in chips, where we battled for a good 45 minutes. Back and forth, up and down, dip and feint. Finally, I doubled up off the chip leader--the primary aggressor most of the time--when he ran his 77 into my JJ. Suddenly, I had 80% of the chips. Four hands later, it was over.
Monkey. Off. Back.
