This hurts ... my first attempt at the $75 token frenzy madness for Sunday's Big Game ended painfully like so:
I flopped second pair with an inside straight draw (QJ on an ATx flop) when I was comfortably in the money vs. the chipleader at my table and a shorty. He min-bet the flop and I c/r allin for another 6K in an attempt to bust the shorty and the bubble.
Instead the chipleader found a call with TPNK (A6) and I couldn't hit my half of the deck.
Pretty disappointing lapse of discipline, considering I was making big laydowns left and right during the bubble period, even going so far as to fold AQ under the gun preflop. ;)
I should have check-folded or led out myself and just checked it down once I got a call. I would have preserved enough of my stack to earn a token that way.
At least I won my freakin' buyin back. Sigh.
