I managed to final table this tournament 2 times a couple of weeks ago finishing 7th on both occasions. Hope this is a sign of things to come today. After a disastrous end to the day yesterday.
Was playing the Jumbo Shrimp 1.10 yesterday afternoon and made it to top 100 in about 30th spot and threw it all away against the big stack in the BB next to me. It was folded around to me and thought he would only call with the goods. He called with K9 os and hit a flush. It was stupid on my part but even more ridiculous as it cost him more that 65% of stack, mot a good choice but he was lucky i had nothing.
Wish me luck the rest of the ways boys and girls and I'll Pop in to update later on.
------------ Never ever try to do laundry and play poker at the same time, especially if you have to run downstairs to the basement of your building. play 2 stup hands and am down over 23k from my previous post. I hate chores!

They are saying its not how old you are, but how old you feel. Your 38 year old boy is having another great start it seems, but it didnt finish well this time.
It may have to do, with the time the tournament you are playing lasts, irish. I never had good results in long tournaments. At some point i get bored, losing concentration and playing hands i shouldnt have played in the first place. Believe it or not in some occasions, im relieved that i lost, so that i can do other things, than keep playing poker

Why did you start playing before finishing your chores?

That's a poker, you are now on the top and next time you are at the bottom, one hand destroyed you. I hate when I have big stack point and got great hand all the time, and then with good hand loose from some idiot who pay me at all in with nothinh and got me but I said that's a poker, sometimes is a roses and sometimes is a s**t..

You seem to be getting very close to winning one of these things and it must be only a matter of time before you do. You must be playing really well and, if you can cut out the little mistakes, you will be posting many wins in the near future
