Did you ever do something and your heart just wasn't in it? Well, that was me last night.
I started my play last night and shockingly it was an up and down session. Oh wait, that happens every night. Anyway, I decided to sign up for the Mookie last night. I hadn't played in a while and thought it would be fun. By the time it started, I was ready to stop playing. So what do you do? Well, I will tell you what I do. I go into super aggressive mode. Get chips or get out. The last choice almost happened as all of my 3 bets, check raises, etc failed miserably. I'm down to around 800 chips or so sitting squarely in last place. I'm not too upset as I said, my heart just wasn't in it; but as bad as I didn't want to play, I just CAN'T GIVE chips away... so I waited.
I shoved... doubled up... a little while later... I shoved again... doubled up and now I'm almost back to my starting stack. Dang it!!! Now I guess I have to play. I was truly rooting for the others in those all ins.
Next thing you know, we are at the final table. Next thing you know, we are in the money. Next thing you know I am heads up with my nemesis, Skiddo. This guy historically has killed me headsup in tournaments. Tonight was no different. My middle pair was no good as he flopped top pair as he always does and beat me out. I was going for my 5th Mookie win; but it wasn't meant to be. I guess 2nd is OK; but a win would have been better. ;-)
Have a nice day!!!
