I actually busted out not long after posting in 16th place. Didn't feel it really warranted an update post. Wasn't too pleased with myself, lost my stack in two hands. AK on the SB, medium stack shoves from middle position. . I figure him for pretty much what he has, middle pair. I dunno, I find so often people shove this hand. Anyway, I figure that it's worth the coin flip if I want to have a formidable stack going into the final table, as the money was pretty much the same up to top 5, and the blinds are getting bigger, so anyway I call and he flips 10 10 and it holds up. It was one of those ones, if I'd won I would've had about 10k and would've been sitting in top 3 with 17/18 odd left. As it was I was down to 14th odd.
NEXT HAND, I get AJ on the button. . 1 limper from middle position, who's been playing fairly loose calling a lot, so I shove hoping to pick up the ok sized pot.
Alas, the BB called and turned over, wait for it. . 65 suited, and hits his 6.
And i'm oot.
To summarise, not a bad first day of play, like the site, and still looking forward to the freerolls.
