Call me a bad sport but I DO NOT congratulate Lightning. I mean I like the guy. He really is a nice guy. Kind of goofy and weird like me. He had to have played one of the worst games I have ever seen though. Besides that fact that CALLING AQ into a 3-bet shove is like bending over and saying "Give it to me up the ass".. I mean the range for that shove is AA-JJ AK. So most of the hands your up against your totally fucked. The guy just plays flip a coin. As proven by his next call of a 3-bet jam where he was against Aces and by some miracle lost.
I will also say his retardation was probably the least shown by the hand we played. He consistently called huge bets on Axx boards with Queens for significant parts of his stack and gollleyyyy if that Queen did not show up three times. Two outers for the skilled play. Go Lightning. I am not even including the five or six times he legitimately hit a set on the flop vs hands like aces and kings when he should have called.
Every MTT is based on getting a little lucky. Catching a nice suckout here and there. When you consistently get in dominated worse than a dwarf whore in a leather factory and pull miracles out of your ass that is not playing well and just getting lucky here and there.
Basically he played Keno all night long got a fucking once in a lifetime blow job from statistics and lucked his way into a seat he probably did not deserve based on his play. So congratulations? Really? I think I will save that for someone who deserves it.
