Hi all :D

Just come out of a $20 buyin MTT on stars. 1053 entries, I placed 189 - just out of the money :(

I was really happy with my play. I got my money in with the best hands, got as much as I could with the monster hands and folded decent starting hands when I saw flop. I did take a few bad beats, being
  • 1010 v K10 all in from shortstack with 7 times bb. He pushes in middle position, I`m on button. I pushed all in to lose the blinds - spikes his K on river
  • AKs v KQ all in push by guy with 1/2 my stack. He catches his straight.
  • AKs v KQs -We were both in middle position and both on about 6000 chips. He raises 3 times bb (1800) I shove all in. All fold to him. He catches Q on turn.
The nearest I came to being `lucky` was when I was forced all in by a shortie. He showed flush draw, 57, v my trips on flop. Again I was ahead.

To cheer me up, however, I have pulled together a poll to get a general view from you all. Please participate and feel free to comiserate with me about my bad beats :D

All the statements are true, at this moment in time but one.

You did just come out of a $20 MTT on stars, where you got at least those 3 beats while still being happy with your play. All true as far as we can see.

The untrue statement at this time is the poll part. There is no poll.
