The wife was in Vegas all weekend. I got to blow my 3 tokens on Full Tilt and have some fun with the boy. My best finish was 102 out of @940 in the 18K on Satuday. Not bad, especially since I went out on a bad beat. AT outflopped my AJ. No 3 outer for me. Winning that pot would have vaulted me to well above average. I am very happy with the way I played that tourney. The guy that busted me also busted Mr. Speaker when Speak's QQ ran into his AA.
They way I went out was pretty interesting, to me anyway. The hand before I was in the BB with KTo. The badguy is on the button with a large stack, about 4x mine. I have an M of about 5. It folds to the button and he pops it up in a standard manner. SB folds and I move all in. He insta-folds. Next hand I have AJs in the SB. It folds to the bad guy in the cut off and he pops it again. Button folds and I push. He thinks and calls. AT vs my AJ. I'll take that matchup every day. Now, I know he has to stand his ground at somepoint, but he called off 25%-30% of his chips with AT. I don't think I can do it. But maybe he thought I was abusing him because he had shown that he could lay it down. I dunno.
I stuck it out to play the 8K and didn't fair as well. I was too tired and donked too much.
Sunday was a fun day. The boy and I played in puddles and dirt hills. He went with me to kickball and witnessed dad go 1-3 with a crushing solo homerun. Yes I am big and fat and there is no fence. So I have to kick the ball very, very far to make it all the way around the bases. And yes I am a 33 year old father of 1 that plays kickball, two games every Sunday. But these guys play too.
