Another day playing the BRM leaderboardfreeroll. Very early blind are 25/50 and my stack the lower with 2,325. I am on the button with K K i have two limpers in front of me plus SB and BB so i raise to 300 the SB and B B fold and the to limpers call. The flop come Jh 9c 4c the first one check and the other one shoved and i called. see result in screen shot.
Should i i think it is the best to do. I just went to see i went out 319th. and the one who did went out 312th.

... < You're having some serious bad luck in them tournies lately pinotte...! You're usually in the upper levels instead of getting bounced constantly...!
... < I'm finding there is a higher than usual 'Donk Factor' in these PP tourneys...! Those ace chasing morons really annoy me... I'd consider that with at least a suited ace,...or high card connectors,....but THAT junk,...??? A 4 off...??? ...and to get ClObBeReD with THAT $H!T...?

Tough break my friend Mr Pinotte : (
I on the other hand could easily be in first still. had the chip lead most of the first hour or so and then lost a couple of stupid plays by me. didn't crush my stack to much though as i was so far ahead of everyone else on table.
Sitting 11th currently at the second break with only 27 more to go till the cash portion of the tourney begins. With 38 BB's still i can make some moves with only 2 other legitimate stacks to worry about on my table. Wish me luck boys.
------------ BS guy calls my A K with A 9 and hits the flop. Out on the bubble 31st. should've folded to make money but I knew I was stronger then him. Wow bubble really sucks when you are near top whole time. This one will take a bit to get over.
Stupid me for not folding preflop or just unlucky me ?
I'm going with the first option more than the second. If I had just played AK the way i had earlier in the game i would've gotten away from it. oh well learning experience and a harsh one at that. at least it was only a freeroll and not for some major coin. Then i might have to kill myself hehe.
Good louck the rest of the way boys and girls in the leaderboard.

I saw you and IQA bubbled, only me and Ingrind of the forum regs ITM this time I was sorry to see...
Finished 8th out of 367 for 2.05 points on the leaderboard; I could have easily finished a few places higher (waiting for two short stacks to bust), but I was going for the win, so I took my chance. I'm okay with it.
I think I may have gotten some of the luck that you are lacking, Pinotte...

Posted by pinotte: surely i am in a downswing.
me too... yesterday i lost twice with QQ to AA on PS. both hit trips on flop, slowplayed to river. after i pull out a huge bet he moved all-in and somehow i had the feeling "hes got aces", unfortunatly i was right 2nd time was nearly the same. AA preflop all-in lost to AKs, JJ and once to a donkey who moved allin with 28o after my reraise...horrible. lucky i won on weekend some big pots, so im break even. most annoyin is that all happened in a short time of play.

... < I will attest that our friend Monsieur Pinotte is unequivocally (spell check on unequivocally please) about as far from being a 'RigTard' as humanly possible....!
... < I don't believe I've ever seen him claim that things are 'rigged'...!
you noticed my laughing smiley ? it was a joke...
edit: but i might open a rigged thread, most funny threads imo

I have seen many members here saying that they have lost in zoom pinotte, so if you are on a losing strike, definitely dont try your luck there. play some omaha h/l games for a change and do a couple 1$ buy ins, hit and run

PINOTTE. As you appear (in your own words) to be on a downswing, walk a way from poker for a few days and recalibrate your mind. Play some other game where money is not involved. I find playing 10/10 is a great way to regain my focus and play until I get a new high score, then return to poker refreshed and refocused.
