winner winner, blonde spinner...
when sunday 1st started i was sure it was gonna be as horrible or worse than most other sundays. i had KK 4,329 times in the 1st several hours and only won 2 pots with them.
things started to turn around and i was winning 45 man sngs ( i won 4 of them, which is the most i have ever won in a day even though i once won 3 straight). and i built up stacks in a few tourneys.
i got pretty deep in both the 65k and the nightly 30r, but both were failures. im ok with that as those don't pay as much as the 150r.
i was starting to get pretty deep in the 150r on FTP, i was running hot, winning flips, sucking out, and holding up.
so i get to the final 2 tables of the 150r, and i was completely expecting to bust at that point since it seems that is a curse of mine. it also seems i was supposed to...
this was all in pre for all my chips and i won a very nice pot. i guess it was my turn, usually i have been on the other side of this. this was not my only suckout this tourney, i ran good.
and i made the final table with a descent stack...
i think i played the final table pretty well, although i did made 1 or 2 mistakes (1 kinda bad, don't wanna talk about it). i was up and down the whole time at the table, but kept recovering when i got knocked down and took it down...
heads up didn't last long at all, only 2 hands, he had 1 mil and i had 2 mil... in this hand i limped the SB and he checked. he checked the flop and i min bet, he just called. he check raised 40% of his stack on the turn, and i put him all in.... and B00M!!
this feels so good if is impossible to explain. i was all excited and my heart beating fast, was def a rush. it hasn't felt anywhere close to that good to win a tourney since my 1st win ever.
guess this isn't my last day playing MTTs... either Monday or Wednesday is, depending if i play tomorrow or not (just kidding obv, but seems like every time i decide a certain day is my last i come up with a win).
time for a hooker?
