Life has been tremendously busy the last few days with family visiting from overseas, and work has been quite hectic as well. So I was glad to finally find the time to sneak in a bloggament.
Unfortunately, my chiplead at the final table didn't hold up as I busted out in 4th place in the Mookie (but with plenty of scalps earned along the way). I'll do a longer recap tomorrow, but for now I'll just put up a couple of screenshots.
And that was one sick bustout hand where I used position and a big flop raise to try to get my opponent to fold ... and failed. K-high busted draw is good. Poor result ... but I got her to put it all in with a bare draw against my range of hands which is way, way ahead ... so I like my play even if it didn't work out. I guess I need to borrow this phrase to summarize my feelings on this.
