A little closer

I managed to cash in another 10K on Full Tilt tonight, this time finishing 30th (588 runners). Saw an astounding 8 percent of the flops and got stuck for an extended period at a table with some big stacks who knew what they were doing. As we got near the bubble, I folded some nice hands, including 9s and jacks. Yes, jacks. (Sigh.) Wimpy? Yes. But I really do hate jacks. And, as it turns out, both hands would have lost.

One from the bubble with a stack of around 5K, I found pocket kings. I pushed and the big stack called with A-4 from the big blind. I won my race and cruised into the money. Nothing happened after that. N-O-T-H-I-N-G. I stole with A-Q once and finally pushed pocket 9s with around 5K left and got two callers. King-queen got his king on the flop and I was done.

In the meantime, I'd been chipping up nicely in the Tanner Evers Charity Tournament hosted by Mookie. I managed to final table it, finishing eighth, but more importantly, captured bodacious bounty -- cookies! -- by knocking out Mrs. Mookie. A fun tournament. Let's hope Mr. Evers rebounds nicely from his bad beat.

Congrats on the nice run last night, including the bounty. You're lucky their cookies from an online place and not homemade...there may have been a a secret ingredient or two after knocking MM out :)

Thanks so much playing in the tourney last night.
