What did I learn



So what did this teach me? Well.. I learned it is not worth fighting over the last $400 when you are both from the East Coast and you can make a deal. I learned that I HATE PEOPLE WHO PLAY .25/.50 LHE so much that I would kill one on site. I learned that torturing myself at low limit LHE hurts.. alot.. and I will never do it again. I will also not be tilting anytime soon, because, even though it was only a day it sucked. I learned that I do really good when I play angry I hate you maverick poker. I learned that my last (x) dollars is usually good for a huge win in the 180/SNG or the 90/SNG. I learned that the 90/SNG is alot easier than the 180/SNG and I like my chances against any random 90 donkeys. I learned that Gavin Smith is a great player featured on Card Player and I knocked his AQ loving ass out of the tourney so I am better than he is and I should be on Card Player.

Ok.. Ok. I might be pushing that last one a little. Props to Gavin for pushing his AQ against my 88 with an M<5. If he won that hand I would have been the short stack and he would have gone on to win the whole thing like me.

Anyway I am exhausted as I always am when I play my best. I am elated at winning 1125 after the split. I am greatful to have a bankroll for the 1/2 LHE game again and I am going to sleep.

Congrats, glad to see that the assclown busting you turned into a nice profit. Do you know where Maverick blogs?

Gavin Smith? Really? What's his nick? Congrats on the score btw.

As far as Maverick is concerned, a similar thing happened to me last night. With about 30 people left, some "tired" blogger pushed with pocket threes against my kings on a J-10-8 flop that was raised THREE times preflop and he managed to suck out a three on the river. That hand would have given a monster chiplead instead of knocking me down to the middle of the pack. Oh welll...

Again, nice job. Have a question for you, what limits do you play in relation to your bankroll (cash and tourneys) ?

Congrats !
