Busto

It’s all over. I pushed what I had left in with 77 and got called by a pair of tens. I battled but it wasnt to be. Couldn’t get paid on my real hands and was never able to build any momentum. Thanks for following along, have a great weekend!

2nd break - short stacked

The hand I lost the chips: with 80k behind I raised to 4500 with KJ hearts. The big stack who was the big blind called. Flop J95 2 spades. I bet 7k, he called. Turn was the 7 of spades. He checked I bet 16k, he called. River was the deuce of spades. He checked. I guess I could have bluffed all in after this check but I just checked too and he showed 97 for two pair. It leaves me with about 50k an with the blinds about to be 1200/2400 with a 400 ante, my chips will be in the middle 100% in the next level. If I get a double up I’ll have some breathing room, but I’m going to need to get lucky. Unfortunately when you need luck it usually doesn’t show up! Anyway, we start back up in 10 mins

Lost a big pot

But I’m smiles because I did everything right. He got lucky and that’s just the way it goes. What a bummer. Will elaborate later. Still barely in but should be out shortly

First break

Just before the break I flopped a top flush and got no action on it. Ugh these are the hands I’m trying to make money on today! I’m at 70k. Next level is 1k/2k blinds. The stacks are growing around me an the soft spots disappearing. I will be all in soon, gonna need some luck
