Weird Thing, Poker
So, my last $15 is dwindling away after a few bad beats and I have $2 and change left. I am thinking of reloading and therefore enter a MTT for $1. First hand, bust out with AK. Oh dear. I am not on tilt, just have a rye smile on my face.
So, with my last dollar, leaving 30 cents in my account I buy in for a turbo shorthanded tourny with top 80 paid and 980 entrants. It is ridiculous as the blinds shot up and I am soon down to about 3 BBs half way through. UTG, I pick up AA. Triple up. I survive until the bubble, when I steal a few big pots. Suddenly, I am in the race, and some more aggressive play really strengthens my stack. A few bad plays leave me shorter than I would like but on the BB I am getting the hands and suddenly I am at the final 5, and finish second.
I won $118 and it is my biggest cash so far in around 3 months of online play. Just when i thought I was dead, I survive. Very happy.
Now, BRM is top of my list to keep this run going.
