That's final table #4, and 2nd place #2. The other 2nd was also the Mookie.
I came to play tonight. I wanted first badly. Like I said in the last post, I wanted to win. With authority.
I'll spare the details until later today maybe. It's 2:20am and I'm wiped. But I got incredibly lucky to get heads-up, and sucked out huge to get up to 100k vs Mike's 200k+. Then card death. I'm not talking A-rag, or unsuited one-gappers. I'm talking 62o, 73o... nothing suited, nothing painted, no aces. And it got WORSE as my chips dropped. Finally called all-in with 67h vs Mike's 69s. 9 hit on the flop, nothing helped me. End of game.
That said, 2nd place MAY be enough to achieve 1/3 of my goals for the week. We'll have to see how tomorrow plays out. I know the other 2 are impossible this week.
Congrats to Mike. Just like I had no problem losing to Iggy, I've got no problem with Mike taking it down over me. It was well deserved. My time will come.
The $190.40 for 2nd is okay, and the $100 win for Lucko's horse betting was gravy. Toss in winning a token for The Big Game (5k superstacks = awesome) earlier in the night and cashing in another $22 turbo and I'd say it was a solid night of poker for me.
