After coming back from footie practice I felt like playing another little tournament, so I entered a 5$ + 0.50$ fee S&G – 9 players, top 3 pay, 1st: 22,50$, 2nd: 13,50$, 3rd: 9,00$.

I played a little tighter than usual and was able to survive some crucial early hands (A-9 vs K-3, board: 7-2-10-5-Q; 7-7 vs 10-K, board: 4-Q-8-5-3). After 5 players busted out it was time for the bubble and believe it or not: this time I made it…sometimes you need to be a little bit lucky I guess…caught the hilton sisters (Q-Q) and raised All-In from the button, the player after me called and showed his Cowboys (K-K), eek! I didn’t only survive though, I busted him out and doubled up when the board came up: A-Q-2-9-3….We’re in the money….couldn’t catch all that many hands, bluffed some pots though and won some minor pots (mostly holding an Ace and pushing a little), and was chip leader for a while (8k)…couldn’t survive though as I was pushed out of many hands…in the end I lost when I pushed all in with A-Q, one caller showing 9-9…board didn’t help either side and I was out in 3rd position…would have loved to at least finish second, but hey…better a 3rd and 9$ than nothing 😉
