Was one of THOSE nights where you flop trip 9's and get beaten by a higher kicker. Ick. Oh well. It was my worse night so far on FT and I ended down 1-Slb (I mean 2 buyins at 25/NL). What is a girl to do? Alot of it honestly was due to my play. When you push thiner edges you end up getting creamed sometimes. I just needed to play better last night. Not let frustration get to me. This game has so little to do with cards.
The Mook was the highlight of my night I think. I busted out in 12th which makes a decent finish in the last three blogger events. The best part of the night was when Mookie was small stacked and I wasted him with his own hand. I had been picking on his blinds with some decent hands and he finally pushed. It was like $190 more to call after I 3x the blinds on him so it was a no-brainer. I flipped over the MOOK (T8o) and he turned over his Satanic twins: 66. I thought all hope was gone until I nailed him with a ten on the river! MOOOOOOOKED! BWAHAHAHA! It is pretty nasty to kill a guy in his own tourney with his own hand. Yes. Indeed. The best part of the night. I finally got my just deserts when Chilly the maniac of the night (and I am sure he would fully agree) decided to run his KQ against my 77 for around 1/3-1/2 his stack. He of course spiked a Q and that was it for me. Chilly was getting luuuuuuckkkkyyy and he was enjoying it. Good game man.
One hand I am not sure that I played right in the night. I had a decent size stack and it was 3 ways with 2Kish stacks. The flop gives me 2-overs, a gutshot straight and a backdoor flush. It would have cost me another 1100 to call. I would have been able to make like 5K. I would have then been able to cover Chilly later on or even not push my sevens if I won this hand. I would have been left with like 3K if not. So I have a fairly decent drawing hand, I will not go bust, and all the pressure they can exert on me has happened. I am not sure my fold in this position was correct. In the raise that got me out of the hand came from J5o (TPSK), another call was made by KJo, albeit a small stack. My KQ would have turned the nut flush draw and rivered a Queen for a win. Perhaps I am just lamenting the fact that I actually would have won but part of me thinks taking a risk like this might have been a good MTT move. Any comments?
