In holdem MTT, which one of these statements, in the main, is true.
Just come out of a $20 buyin MTT on stars. 1053 entries, I placed 189 - just out of the money
I was really happy with my play. I got my money in with the best hands, got as much as I could with the monster hands and folded decent starting hands when I saw flop. I did take a few bad beats, being
- 1010 v K10 all in from shortstack with 7 times bb. He pushes in middle position, I`m on button. I pushed all in to lose the blinds - spikes his K on river
- AKs v KQ all in push by guy with 1/2 my stack. He catches his straight.
- AKs v KQs -We were both in middle position and both on about 6000 chips. He raises 3 times bb (1800) I shove all in. All fold to him. He catches Q on turn.
The nearest I came to being `lucky` was when I was forced all in by a shortie. He showed flush draw, 57, v my trips on flop. Again I was ahead.
To cheer me up, however, I have pulled together a poll to get a general view from you all. Please participate and feel free to comiserate with me about my bad beats
