but don't get wound up in it, lay low it's your best bet. blew off the ofc buyin yesterday because 2nd hand pocket Q's. i made a strong bet in late position and utg went allin and i called they paired A's and i was out - pretty much. i keep vowing not to do that but chit happens.
i later played 200k tourny very tight i might add and finished in the 300's there's about. i didn't make a move without a solid hand that's what made the difference and you didn't see much donking going on at least preflop.
gl on the felt.
yea i had a similar situation happen in the FTOPS Turbo warmup..
i had 12,000 in chips, the average was about 4,000 at the time but there was another guy at the table with 13,000 betting like crazy...
i finally hit a hand, KK so when he raised i reraised all in
i was stunned when i saw the quick call, he ended up having AK and hit a Ace, and that was that...
i played tight and smart but couldve folded this even though its hard, the chip stack/position was not worth it i guess...
