Strange but true:
Today I registered for the 500 GBP (about 800 USD) Sunday Afternoon Freeroll at William Hill
. A little before it was due to start, a friend came to visit. We sat around talking a while and I forgot about the tourney.
After he left, I went to the PC to break out of the William Hill site and go play somewhere else, having missed the tourney. Out of curiosity, I checked the tourney situation. By now, it had reached the first interval. There were 320 of the 1000 starters left, including me ! I was not quite blinded out, had about 3 BBs left.
For a laugh, I decided to play just one hand. First time I was dealt reasonable cards (K7s) I went all-in. I got two callers, made my flush and tripled up.
Ok, thinks I, got just about enough chips to play with now, might as well carry on. To cut a long story short, two-and-a-half hours later I reached the final table. Sadly, some guy sucked out on me then and I only managed 9th place. Even so, this was much the best result I`ve had in my four attempts at this particular tourney, and I didn`t even start to play until I was all but busted.
How weird is that ?
