More Final Table Frolics
After donking out of the Micro Millions PLO Mtt yesterday afternoon I pre-rolled eight fat smokes and registered for 32 Mtt's.I learned last week that if I hit the "Ctrl" and "R" keys at the same time Stars shows which tourneys I'm in and how many.Very handy! Anyway I started at 6.30pm and finished up around 3.30 in the morning and despite getting up at 12 today I still feel pretty exhausted.I suppose that's not really a surprise after 9 hours of constant decision making with only a 5 min break every hour.The good news for my bankroll is that I made another final table,this time coming 4th for $719 in a $5 turbo ,$10 Gtd tourney with 2500 runners.
The bad news is that I probably should have taken down that tourney as I had the chiplead going into the final table.My excuse? Well a girl I'm good friends with from work who's off on long term sick at the moment decided( after a bottle of wine apparently!) that last night would be a good time to catch up and even letting her know ( seemed like a subtle hint to me) that I was playing quite a few tables including a final one didn't stop the texts coming.Next time I'm switching my phone off and explaining later!
It's all a bit of a blur looking back but I do remember getting lucky when I shoved 7h4h blind v blind when 5 handed.The villain woke up with 1010 and I made a flush to survive.With the blinds being so high there was no room to raise/fold and although I did resteal a couple of times with nothing I was card dead too and for ICM reasons I had to balance shoving all in preflop without a hand to stay in the game with hoping others would bust and I'd move up the pay ladder.
If I'd been thinking straight it would probably have made sense to try and do a deal as it was a real crapshoot towards the end with myself and the other shorter stack on 6 and 10 big blinds and even the two bigger stacks only holding 14 and 16 bb stacks.The other shorter stack shoved utg and holding KQs on the button I decided I had to call as I had 6bb,the blinds were about to hit me shortly and if I could win the other shorter stacks chips I'd just about lock up 3rd place and have a decent chance of winning the whole thing.He had 22 and flopped a set so that was that.I did twelve table the 45/180 player turbo's for a couple of hours afterwards and although I took a $7 45 one down I should probably have hit the sack earlier.These multi-table sng's do seem to rack up the frequent player points though and as I've hit the magic 3.5k mark I think I'll use them tonight to get a free ticket to the bigger $55.
I've mentioned on here that I'm not into ( well apart from having a good old fashioned online diary of course) social media, however one of my friends pointed me in the direction of a Steven Gerrard twitter Q n A session and some of the questions put to the Liverpool captain were just brilliant.#AskStevieG ...
"Ryan Giggs wife divorced him and took half of everything he owned.How does it feel knowing she has six more Premier League title medals than you do"?
Someone saying they were Ji Sung Park asked Stevie G if he "would like a photocopy of one my winners medals"?
"How does it feel to know that ( insert random member of the public's name) has the same amount of Premier league winners medals you do"?
"If you could have a forehead,whose would you pick"?
"Who would win in a foot race,Jamie Carragher or the erosion of the UK coastline"?
"Stevie,do you remember when you were better than Frank Lampard"?
"Steve,which defeat was harder to take? It's ok you can email me as I know you only have 140 characters on here"
"On a scale of Jonjo Shelvey to Jordan Henderson,how bad is Stewart Downing"?
"At least at Liverpool you can now concentrate on the Champions League,The Premier League,errr your family".
Thanks for reading.Back soon...
