Full Tilt 625-player $24+2 MTT
Game #: 9301291
Player: Tiltopotamus

I'm currently 8th out of 9 with about 6% of the chips. Haven't been chipleader much in this tourney, but haven't had to show down many hands, either.

Pretty fun tourney so far! Good action, lively table chatter until the bubble.

Biggest final table I've ever been to! :D

Fell to last in chips pretty quickly, all-in blind-steal attempt from the button with T3o goes horribly awry as I get called by the BB with A5... 3 on the flop... 5 on the turn... T on the river! Whoo!

5th place out of 9

Other than losing 9 antes, 1 SB, and 1 BB, nothing much interesting in that orbit! :)

I like the Full Tilt "final table" background, tres cool...

Edit: Break time!

Still a full table, 3 interesting hands in succession:

SB/BB/antes are 4k/8k/1k, and my M is basically 5.

1) AQs under the gun, I decided to just push (maybe I could have gotten away with a small raise). Short stack calls me with KK, I hit a Q but not an A or enough suits, so I am reduced but not quite crippled.

2) Next hand: I'm BB, dealt A6o. SB completes, I raise all-in (maybe 6x the BB). After some words, he folds.

3) Very next hand: In the SB, I am dealt KK. Someone pushes ahead of me, I call, he's got AJ, he hits an ace in the river but I hit a K on the flop so it's all good.

Update: #3 / 8

Gut-wrenching hand. 100k chips, I'm in the BB for 10k, middle position with the short stack raises to 40k (25k left), called by late position so I fold. Flop comes A-rag-rag, short stack bets all-in (25k into a 100k pot), late position folds and says he had KJ.

Wonder what middle position had??

2 more hands:

1 - In the BB again, very short stack in late position pushes and gives me 2:1 odds to call, which I do with A6, with my 6/5 boat beating his 2-pair.


2 - Dealt ATo on the button with 7 players left. Folded to me, I raise to 4x the BB, I'm called by the BB. Flop comes T-6-2 with the 6-2 suited. BB bets half his stack into me, and my only note on him comes in helpful -- "c-bets" -- I re-raise all-in and he folds.

Phew! 2/7

Down to 4-handed, 3rd stack does all-in, and I call with AK of diamond. Flop of AAK seals his fate, and I am sitting on over half the chips here.

I am super psyched right now! Thanks Combu and the others who visited the final table and offered encouragement!

What a great cap to a year spent learning the game of poker, or at least improving my game and taking it online, struggling at times with discipline or patience or even the urge to gamble, and finally being able (with lots of luck) to complete one of my goals to win a nice MTT! My wife watched parts of the game, and most of it at the end, and I'm glad cause it was among the most observant and analytical poker I've played (with lots of luck).

Thanks for some great poker discussions over the year, guys. Wow, what a great thought that was: "hmmm... this poker forum looks pretty civilized, maybe I should check it out". :) :) :)

Thanks, Sherm and Xife!

For sure... it was also the longest I think I'd ever played in an online tourney, at 5 hours and 5 minutes. Definitely a great feeling.
