But from then on it was downhill all the way - although I personally think I did little wrong and had a 'bad beat' day at the office. The 2 main pots that did for me where below
I limp Btn +2 with 77, the person in the cutoff raises to 4*BB all fold round to me. I push, and he calls showing AsJs. The Flop/Turn brings 9sTcTs Kh- So he has an awful lot of outs (25 !!) but I'm still leading until the River brings an Ace.
I had raised 3*BB on Button with A9- and the BB had re-raised me 10*BB more, so I fold. Next circuit I have 44 on Button, no one had entered the pot and I decide to raise 3*BB again, hoping he again tries the re-raise, and lo-behold he does. - Just what I wanted.
I then push All-In, and he ponders, at this point I know he isn't to strong but he eventually turns showing 22 - the trap is sprung and I couldn't have asked for better, thinking he may have 2 over cards if he called, as opposed to a lower pair !!
Unfortunately as they say in the Army - 'No Plan Survives Contact', and so it came to be with this plan as a 2 showed up on the river.
Bloody Marvellous !! - Still only $1 down on the tourney thanks to the Bounty, and I played well enough, even though I went out early
