Up until last night my best finish has been the 3am tournament that I registered for but didn't play. 138th is not bad considering I was asleep but it is sad that I can't finish higher by playing!
Anyway, thought I was going to qualify last night when I sucked out on someone early with 77 against 99.
Then got KQ on the button and so limped as I thought the big bilnd might play back at me if I raised.
Anyway he did raise and so I called.
Flop came J55 and he lead out. I didn't figure him as being strong and so flat called with 2 overs and possibly even the lead.
Turn was a K and when he bets again I opresume he does have the J, I reraised he went all in for a handful more chips and I call to see his aces. Even the Q turn doesn't help and I finish 123rd.
To be honest, if I raise pre flop and he reraises I am still expecting to have the best hand given the table dynamic at the time.
Could probably have folded into the final maybe but the added money (that's right I did notice the extra payouts, unlike some!) made me want to win.
Anyway, looking forward to having a dabble at the mixed games tonight.
Good luck to everyone playing.
