The WWdN, also known to mankind as gotta love it, gotta hate it. Same ol’ same ol’ at the WWdN front. I do fairly well until we’re down to the last two tables and then I can’t catch anything and/or can’t seem to hit anything. As soon as my stack is down to a low, I get a hand, but my stack doesn’t scare anyone off anymore, so my hand get’s cracked by bs hands (this time it was AQo vs 109o)…out in 17th of 72…either I need to catch a break or present a gift to the poker gods – although I’m fairly sure that they’re mad at me for sucking out on the hammer. Yes you read that right, I sucked out on the hammer! I confess – no wonder that I didn’t finish ITM, I sucked out on the hammer in a tourney which is featuring 72 players. A coincidence? You be the judge 😉
Hand of the night – the already mentioned hammer (re)suck:

Well, so I was way ahead preflop, way behind on the flop and then I sucked out. Basically a loose/bad call on the flop, after all I suspected that S.t.B was on a semi-bluff-steal (if a steal attempt with the hammer can even be considered a semi-bluff) as you can see in the hand history above, but tbh I can’t really suspect a hammer behind every bush…although this is the WWdN, so I guess you could…but more often than not, it’s not the hammer…anyway…I won that nice pot, but in the end the poker gods punished me for it ( 😉 )…

Alrighty…I’m out of here…already missed the first half of the NBA Finals game 3…gooo Dirk! Goooo Mavs! Get this one tonight and I’m getting my broom ready 🙂
