I pretty much played abc poker, with basically all of my big hands holding up. Had one or two tricky spots but tightness prevailed. One of the spots I put as an example on my thread "Tricky spots: what do you do?." Another one there was like 17 people left I was UTG+2 with JJ blinds 500/1000 with my stack about 18k. I kinda didn't know whether to just go all in or not, because I thought somebody would have an ace and call me the way the table was playing. I bet 6k, the biggest stack went all in, from just after me in position, and the guy after him called all in with 12k, everyone else folded. Which left me in a real predicament. I probably should have just shoved in the first place, and I dunno whether it would be a bad call after what happened after my bet. Despite what my intuition was telling me I folded, (it told me to go all in in the first place but I've been running really bad of late and am kind of beat down from it, so my rational side took over). I would have won, the bigstack had AQ off and the other guy had A6 diamonds both hit nothing. Would have been smooth sailing if I did call but i got there in the end anyway. Hopefully my run improves by the 30th so I can get a big cash!

@ SuperNoob: Thanks, I need some good luck, its been over a month of running bad. Some of the statistics I've seen you come out with I'm amazed! You must be a maths whiz if its mental arithmetic. But aswell, these stats are implied if you get me, you must be good at poker! You're like a savant or something. I hope I never get on the same table as you.
Posted by Greenmohave: That's a nice one to get in. Carbon has a$10,000 also in which I'll be in at the end of the month. normally 1800 to 2200 players. I'll get sucked out on trips, but hope you do well. Keep us posted!
Good luck in your 10k also. Does this 10k on carbon have any restrictions? I'm trying to build a bankroll for free on carbon, because I've done it before and like the site. Will probably deposit if I fail for much longer, and no offense to you because you seem like a good player from your posts, but most of the opponents on carbon are american which usually equates to a donk. I almost placed in one of the freerolls the other day went out just before the bubble. A donk was really getting to me and I made a rash decision.
