WWDN: I P@WN You
I took another final table finish. It was a small field. I got blinded down and went out in 3rd place. I pushed with 58d figuring I had straight, flush, and low card outs. I was right. He had A4. I ALMOST caught my straight. Oh well. Not much you can do with 10xBB left.
A player at the table, Gantor, was making some sub-optimal decisions and getting paid off big for them. I beleive his wins included pushing 55 against JJ, AQ against AA with an AKT board. Hands he should of gotten beaten on over and over.
Now while I think he *could* have gotten away from a few of those hands I have two problems with people yelling at him. The first one is that it is just rude. Grow up. Bad beats happen every day. Blog about it but don't go and berate a player. Especially in the WWDN where people have various skill levels.
The second thing I like about his play is the fact that he was willing to play. Yes, he was behind, and sucked out alot. However he showed aggression and it is VERY important at a final table to be very aggressive. I liked that.
So anyway, here is to hoping the next time Gantor wins he does so with the best cards. However, cut the guy a break, he was playing hard and I respect that.
The bankroll(s) had a very healthy night. Stars stands at $450ish, Titan is up to $272 and I even have a few bucks left on Full Tilt. I entered the cancer MTT with half of my monies at Full Tilt. So here is hoping I make some scores with the other half.
