I'll never forget the hand that could have changed everything Only 4 players of 2712 were running, and I was ledear chip table It was in the small blind, I see my cards and I have 66, I thought a long time how to play the ball, the player who was under the gun double the blind, the fourth player folds, and I wanted to frighten him out that he was under the gun I shot him the all-in, he finally folds, but I did not expect the player who was in the big blind pay my bet, as it was a very defensive and fearful player, but unfortunately right then pass had QQ in hand, pray for see a 6 on the flop, on the turn or river, ut it never happened, and lost any chance pass because it is last with very few chips, a couple of passes and then pull my other lost That close I was to travel to the PCA Bahamas, and that idiot I went to play that hand so offensively, but so bad The award was a complete package to the PCA Bahamas valued at $ 15,468 dollars and even then the tournament had not even reached prizes simply be 8 days in a 5 star hotel surrounded by the best poker players in the world had It has been a unique memory Now every time I get couple of 6 in hand when I'm playing a tournament folds without thinking, I hate that pass

yep know the feeling, i still keep a screenshot i made when played for 1.5mil main tournament out of 9 players that got there by taking 1st spot on 9 major tournaments throughout the year, where i finished 5th on one of those 9 tournaments, sooooo close yet sooooo far, could have been a life changer, but i guess it was not my time, but what that experience did, is it got me for good in to poker, haven't been close to make it big out of nothing ever since but im still trying

This Sound verry heavy and of course, you are verry frustrated about that hand. But we all believe and hope that we have one time a good run in a qualifier and win one of this great packages. I think the step tourney are the best chance to win one of this great packages one time in the future...

I'll never forget the night that changed everything. I slipped on a soap in our bathroom, broke my arm and the vacation that year was horrible due to the cast I've gotten out of this. Never forget. But being in a chiplead and winning the tourney is two different animal you know.

i'll never forget the night that has changed everything... there i was sleeping and dreaming of big boobed babes as usual, when suddenly doorbell rang, i woke and went to open the door... gosh you you would never guess who i saw behind the doors- mr. fcukin santa clauss himself... and he asks me- "have you been a good boy pochui?"... "aye as usual" i said scratching my armpit... well then here's a prize for you.. and he gave me two inflatable big boobed babes to use for 3 hours... the moral to the story- when santa claus visits you- open the doors and scratch your smelly armpits in front of him...

Well played the final pass but there is always the feeling it could have been otherwise and fate might have changed, but that never may already know, for me it was just bad luck They may many idiots expesar anything stupid, but I assure you all would have liked to be in your shoes defining this tournament with the illusion of traveling to Bahamas Do not despair, soon got a big prize and with a bit more luck in your pocket stay

That was a disappointing end to the tournament,so close to a great prize with the potential of winning a major tournament.It is frustrating but if you played well at least you know you can hopefully do it again in another game.

If you had won that tournament your happiness would have limits Long you want to classify any tournament on the LAPT ago and I'm sure that soon you can do for your record Every day you are more confident with your game and now they left off twice to close to qualifying and win the full package The third will be the charm surely

had to visit this thread and cancel one of the down-votes for bowie. our blue friends from argentina (aka the "a55 giver" and the "a55 taker" have been doing lots of thing wrong in their shameful lives, but down-voting a post from the legendary mobbit bowie is just one step too far.

That prize was a very good one to miss indeed. You were the chip leader, you had to push the game but not do such moves i believe. 66 is just a pair. Even AA gets cracked lots of time. You could have played the game differently. Maybe next time, you will be more lucky travelling to another tropical destination . All the bets with it.
