I don't have time to do a full recap at present. I will just say that I risked being first out on the very first hand of the tournament (last week, as you may recall, I busted out on Hand #3). From here I rode my way to a 5th place cash, cursing as I lost a couple of key hands late and failing to dodge 7 outs with one card to come to vault into a commanding position and a strong chance to win.
Maybe next time Don won't be quite so cute with KK ... sometimes flopped straights do win!
