Chop Chop Chop

Played a bunch of MTTs last night. And I got this e-mail early this morning from PokerStars:

WaaHoo! My biggest MTT cash yet! Made the final four in one of those $20 180 person SNGs. When it was down the four of us, we agreed on even four way chop. I was pretty satisfied with that because the blinds were so high by this time, it was a turning into a luckfest. So we all got just below second place money.

I am pretty happy about my overall play last night. I think I brought my A game. I was patient, focused, and I didn't go on tilt, even though I suffered some pretty good beats in some of the other MTTs.

I played a total of five MTTs last night:

The above $20 180 person on Stars.

I played in the $17,000 guaranteed on FullTilt. I had a $26 token, so it didn't cost me anything. I made it to the top 200 or so. Lost with AA vs KK all-in PF in level 2 and was knocked down to below 300 chips, but crawled my way back to starting chip stack eventually. I don't really remember what I went out with, but I was a short stack for quite a while.

Played in BoDogs $6,000 guaranteed for $16. Got some good cards in this one, but the bad beats were plentiful. One particular hand there was an EP bettor and I re-raise with Pocket Kings. Flop is all unders and dude pushes and I call. He has AJ. Ace on turn knocks me way down. I crawl back in this one. Later on I get AK, and same dude calls my all-in bet again with AJ! Flop is QJ2, but a Ten on the turn gives me a straight. River is a King for a chop. Lots of beats here. I'm surprised I didn't go on tilt because of this MTT.

Played in the PartyPoker $40,000 guaranteed. I started out well and had double starting chip stack for a while. I was playing pretty tight and lost a lot of chips in a super aggressive guy who min raised me on both the flop and the turn when I had top pair. Usually min-raises mean monsters so when he did it again on the turn I folded. That hand cost me over half my stack. Damn, and I was playing really well there. Made it to the top 25% of the field in this.

And then played in a satellite for a seat in Party's Million guaranteed. Got good cards and was over average with half the field gone. I ended up losing with KK after all the money got in on the flop to JJ. Jack on river sent me packing.

If it weren't for the PokerStars score, I was all ready to write a post on how I am the most unluckiest dude out there. It was quite unbelievable. I couldn't win any coinflips, and my monsters were getting destroyed. AK vs QJ. A9 vs 87. QQ vs AJ. 88 vs KQ. All losers.

I have the hand history of my PokerStars game, and I always like going through those, so I might put up a post soon detailing that game.

So I'm back up to 10G's. Hopefully I can keep it above that point now.
