|Another Big Field !!|
I was lying in 20th place, with $53k, and sitting nicely the intention was to only play big hands in good position, or against desperate shortstacks.However I was dealt 66 in the Big Blind and the 3rd Placed player who was well chipped up raised in Mid-Position to $20k - which was 5*BB.
I said to myself Small Pocket Pair, and used coming over the top for all my stack. He took an eternity to call and when he did he showed TT - another T on the flop and my slim hopes where dashed.
Really narked about my stupidity, but I'll take it on board and learn from it. I had earlier folded AKs to a Min Raise from the then Chip Leader - and feel that was correct, and I should have shown a little more discipline this time. Still $15-40 for no outlay is a (very) small recompense
On a better note,
Congratulations to Mike Saban on qualifying for the Virgin Poker Festival - I put €75 into Virgin Poker yesterday to fund my attempts at qualification (Watch this space)
