Take Two: More Failure

Out in 20th place -- which was a few places out of the money, although I did earn two or three bounties along the way.


My bustout hand was your typical bad beat where a blogger overplayed a pair of aces and got there with a rivered two pair which beat my strong hand which was ahead the whole way.

In the long run, you earn a lot of chips from players who overplay hands like this, but it still hurts when you don't hold up in a crucial hand late in a tournament.

Villain really had no business continuing with one pair past 5th street but managed to get there on 7th with a miracle.

On the plus side I did knock someone out with a royal flush. That was rather fun and obviously a rare feat.
