A good day so far. I'm playing well and making very strong reads; as a result, making some fantastic plays.
Thought I was going to have my first big cash in a MTT as well. I signed up for a $10+1 Knockout NLHE event on FullTilt. Played well and doubled up a couple times late. I found myself sitting in around 14th with 38 people left when this hand happened:
I'm BB with a min raise from the biggest stack at our table. 2 callers plus SB call in front of me. Pot odds say play my A-2off.
Flop comes A-7-2 rainbow. WOOOHOOOOOO!!!! BigStack raises, I re-raise, he pushes me all-in. I call thinking that I have just put myself into the chip lead and have a very good shot at a final table for a real strong payday.
My thinking was wrong.
Oh well, I don't think I could have gotten away from this hand. And I was correct in calling due to pot odds. Sometimes poker is just brutal.
But with all that said and done, my confidence in my game is restored. I'm up a healthy $80 today. Bankroll after buy-in to my 2nd blogger tourney (Hoy tonight) is at $621.
See ya at the virtual felt,
