sunday results and a few hands of interest.

interesting day with a lot of potential that didnt pan out... i cashed the stars million, got close in the stars 2nd chance, and bubbled ftp's 500K. the stars million was using a new structure where we start with alot more chips, but i am pretty sure the structure was sped up a lot. i play 9 sngs today, only cashed 1... got 1st, but i lost about $1400 today between the MTTs and the SNGs.

ok some hands. from the stars million

apparently i am weak tight.... sometimes you have to bluff, and squeeze plays are a great bluff to make... btw, it is also awesome to set up a guy for a squeeze play if you know he makes them.

a FTP 500K hand... it wont convert, so here is a link to the hand. not sure if i played it well, but i think it was a must call on the flop due to the amount of money in the pot... dont you think?

FTP, had QQ

I liked all your plays on those hands. The tens would have been a very bad call IMO.

The J6o was nuts. Great squeeze play, its important to have a good feel for the table when doing that, which I am sure you did.

The Sunday majors are great for plays like that. Lots of loose players afraid to bust because they are playing over their bankroll.

And I as well will final table one of those tournaments.
