Bubble Boy Blues
Played a little SNG last night. Got down to four-handed, guy goes all in, chip leader calls, shortstack catches his card on the river. I ended getting blinded down and go out on the bubble.
I then go to my Saturday night game. First game my nines run into aces, but then I go three straight tournaments out on the bubble. All three times there was a shortstack all-in who caught his card on the turn or river to stay alive. Two of those times were against me, the worst is when I had a guy crushed AQ to Q2 and had the board come a full house.
I did cash in the last tournament of the night, but I had a 2-1 chip lead heads up with the blinds so high it was an automatic all-in for the shortstack. My cards in the 3 hands that decided things? 8-3, 8-4, 8-9. And on the 8-9 hand the other guy had pocket queens. I love poker.
Well, I just got off the schneid by winning a little SNG. Played well, got cards, etc. Nice to win for the first time in a long, long, long time.
Was up till about 3AM playing, so that was good Vegas practice. I plan on getting to bed early the rest of the week, getting some exercise, laying off the booze and fried foods, and a bunch of other things I'll forget about before this actually posts.
