The White Boy Is Back
Sometimes you have good weeks. My MTT game has never been better than this week. As I mentioned yesterday I was ITM in an O8 and Bubble boy in a Razz MTT. This should have shown you my vast superiority in all games of poker not just HE.
Tonight I decided to add on to my MTT run with TWO ITM finishes. The first one I am the most proud off in a way. I entered one of those $2 HE tourneys. I ended up busting out 39th of 1700! I beat up on 1660 people. Albeit they were not the brightest bulbs in the poker world.. but that is hard to do. I did it without a single suckout also. The thing that got me deep into this was catching good hands late. I had a decent stack of 10K in chips and I went on a run where I trippled up. This set me up for a hand where another 30K stack tried to draw out a gutshot straight on my set of kings. I ended up holding up and doubling to 60K. I then went to a high of 138K until I finally busted. I am not really sure how I screwed up but anyway. While it was dissapointing to not make the final table I did well and should take pride in that.
The next one helps me have a workable bankroll again. I scored 4th of 200+ in an O8 MTT. I played super tight and got cards when I needed them. One of the most memorable hand was when I was drawing to a nut hi/lo, missed both, and still won the pot with Ace high. That is EXTREMELY rare in O8. The 4th place finish in this 10/1 MTT netted me over $200 and brings the bankroll to around $260. So I have something to work with on Stars. Next stop: Full Tilt.
Oh, and peeps. Beware of me in the HORSE tourney for these Waffles are cooking!!!!!
