Dumped the ticket for cash. Mistake?
I always do this.
I get into satellites. People play like absolute fish, and they're easy to take advantage of.
Was in a satellite to one of ACR's big guaranteed tourneys. 1'st gets entry to the tourney, and second takes cash.
It was easy all the way to the final table. A few educated coin flips. Sit tight for a couple hours and we're final table.
I hit the final table sitting around 5th. My goal is to make a nice buffer above 2nd place.
To that goal I get bumped to last. So 6 to go, and I'm last I start pushing any ace or face.
Back to first.
Finally 2 of us left I've got 3 times 2nd places stack and my mind gets going like usual and I wonder if I even want the 1st prize.
Lack of confidence tells
me take the cash so I've got something to show for my work.
So long story short I start pushing hands like 2 9 off and such and walk with the cash.
Don't know why I do it.
