This is a discussion on So I was in two minds.... within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; about registering for a £5 + 0.75 bounty hunter tourney.
I am a cash game player, and generally dont stay focussed for long enough to play
about registering for a £5 + 0.75 bounty hunter tourney.
I am a cash game player, and generally dont stay focussed for long enough to play tourneys. Had played my first one last night (same buy in) and got about £7.50 prize from my final position (near min cash) and about £2.25 from knocking people out.
This morning I decided to register, during late registration, with a partial hangover from last night.
Long story short. I made the last 2 players (field was 70 odd), somehow made it to the last 2 even though I only claimed one head - basically other people were on the whole pretty poor. Stacking off nearly any draw and happy to get it all in top pair mid kicker (even if they were in second or third position). I got to the last ten by the skin of my teeth (tourney pays ten for position) and got to the last 2 very much by default.
Last two. Stacks were about 130,000 to him and 10,000 to me.
Blinds about 1k/2k
I shove 22, he calls A7 and I hold.
A few hands later he open shoved A4of and I laugh snap call KK to hold.
A few hands later, I limp AQoff and just felt funny about the hand. He shoved and I call, still feeling uneasy. He shows A2off and flops the 2.
I suppose it was a fine call, but I somehow knew I would lose that hand before I even limped. If you have had the feeling you will know what I mean.
£40 odd prize money and £1 ish for knocking one person out, and I nearly didnt register.
In my semi annoyance at A2/AQ and semi happiness for getting a decent payout I forgot to screen shot the congratulations box but screen shot of last table below.
Oh, also just finished a freeroll, 75pence, hmmm, probably should keep that quiet.

re: Poker & So I was in two minds....
this is the freeroll he finished, may read all the text then you will find it in the last paragraph
Well done, maybe you shuld keep on playing tourneys coming ito cash in the first two tourneys is quiet impressive.
Looking forward to read more
By the way your heads up play was completly correct, have to get in your chips with AQ

It's never wrong to get it in good. Next time be the aggressor or if you get bad feeling, get to the flop and analyze it, you might just save some chips.
