Seabrook AGAIN

Spoiler Alert!  I won the whole shebang bitches!

I decided to play the 4pm tourney and get a little practice in for Super Bowl Sunday.  Because of the weather we didn't get as many runners as usual.  There was a paltry 27 peeps, a 3 table mtt with 3 places in the money.

Changed my live play up a bit.  Usually, I start off tighter than tight.  Tonight I did more limping than usual, trying to hit a flop.  Meh.

Started with 7K and at the first break I had 12K.  Not bad! 

When we were down to 2 tables, I found myself playing against the guy I split a tourney with last time I was there.   Boy did he remember me! :)

He was talking me up like he was my agent.  After 5 minutes of him telling everyone how scary I was, I was able to steal some pots and chip up.

Fast forward to the final table.  I'd been card dead for over an hour and look down at A-K.  I bet it hard and win.  Couple hands later I get A-K again and the other woman at the table jams all in.  She short stacked so I obviously must call her.  She flips over 7-7.  I hit my ace and knock her out.

Now I've played with her before.  She's an older woman and a decent player, albeit a bit too tight.  I actually feel bad about knocking her out (rare for me) so as she's leaving I say "Good game.  I had to call you, but I wanted to take the guys out, not the girls".

Then one of the big stacks says to the table "Ever notice how older women like each other?"

"Wait a minute!  Did you just call me AN OLDER WOMAN?"  I ask.

He did!

I tell the big stack that he just put a nail in his coffin.  He's my focus and he's going to be the bubble.

I shiat you not....he was the bubble!  He lost a big hand to Edward (total donk) who had Jack Ten!  Very next hand, I have.....Jack Ten....and I took his ass out with it!  Flop was jack high and he jammed.  Now this was right after I was extolling the beauty of the jack ten. 

He looked dazed and confused as he walked away.  He's a regular there, and I remember knocking him out about 6 months ago, and how he yelled and acted like a baby when it happened.  Oh well.

John was to my immediate right and a good player.  Only reason he made it to the final table is much earlier on I had him crushed while he was all in and he went runner, runner for a flush.  Ugh.  But he didn't waste those chips....he came in 2nd!

When we were heads up, I took him out in 4 hands.  I did predict I'd do it in 3, but potato, potahto.  At that point, I was doing so much trash talking it was ridiculous.  I kept predicting my win and John kept saying "Don't say that out loud, you're going to jinx  yourself!"

Of course he also kept saying that I was the luckiest person ever.  That it was all luck....getting lucky flops...blah, blah, blah.  Kind of reminded me of another John, (sparky36).  Should I have told him that I'd been card dead for over an hour?  Nah.....let him talk himself into believing it's all luck.

I did get one lucky hand though.....Remember Edward, the donk I mentioned earlier.  I do not know how he made it to the final 4 but he did.  And he SUCKED.  Just not a good player.  So we're 4 handed and I have A-8.  Edward's the short stack and the BB.  I raise and he jams all in.  I figure I'm behind but it wasn't much more to call his all in.  He flipped over A-J.

Ut oh!

Flop was 8-8-x.  Prettiest flop evar!  gg Edward!

Then I took out Joe and then....best for last.....I took out John.  BOOM.

With a pocket full of cash, I headed over to 2-4 limit holdem and won an additional $60. 

Sugar Bear got his take! For spending Saturday night without his Mama, he pocketed $22 cash money.

Now I just have to do this again tomorrow on Super Bowl Sunday.

Oh and I gave John the url to this blog.  John if you're reading...leave a comment and tell the masses just how amazing I am at live tourney play!

Play smart bitches!

WTG Josie, well done. I just got back from Derby Lane after screwing up the tourney. Played well but all it took was one hand and it was goodbye. I did make it all back up playing cash at least. But obviously I am not in Josie's league am I?

Josie said...

LOL Lightning, I know! I was thinking of you when they kept saying that at the final table. I think guys have to rationalize losing some way.

Thanks Neo....All it takes is one hand, one mistake. Been there.
