i know that i don't contribute much around here, but i've not been playing a TON of poker lately. been playing a little bit more, trying to prepare for a $600K in early Jan at my local poker room. and my tournament poker play straight up and down sucks a$$.
played the Noon tourney today. 40 people bought in, top 5 places paid; 5th was $57, 1st was $360; $35 buy in. cheap enough to gain some experience.
made it to the final table, i have a little bit more than 10 big blinds left. around 15k or so.
i'm on the button, 10 players on the table,
blinds are 600/1200
first to act, folds
second to act , folds
third to act, three bets
everybody folds around to me
i look down at pocket 9's;
i shove all in ; around 15K in tourney chips
small and big blinds folds so we are heads up
he flips AQ
three deuces and a Queen hit the board; i say good hand have a nice day
i guess i could have just flat called a third of my stack???
what say ole wise box?? i figure i'm pretty close to a coin flip??? dumb move? it happens??
went and sat on a cash table and had my roll back to even in like 10 minutes but ; i'm trying to be a better tourney player and when it's down to one and done, i mean , what do i do here fold??????
