-Hoy, last week.
Here's a picture of me and Astin playing the $26K Guarantee over at Tilt.
Currently I'm 10th out of a remaining 63 runners, and Astin's 2nd.
1:46: Astin's been having a bad stroke of luck. Got horrendously sucked out upon QQ vs. AJo (there you go, Hoy). I'm at 2nd out of 45. Astin's a shorty but hanging in there.
1:51: Astin's out in 41st, pushing AK and running into AA. Nothing he could do there. I guess I'm solo from here on out.
2:21: I'm 20 out of 22 runners at the break. Blinds are silly high and every time I try to steal, somebody wakes up with a premium hand and I have to fold. When I had more chips I folded 44 to preflop pressure and the flop came low with a four in it. I'd have cracked KK and JJ. Good fold there, but it stings. Proud of myself for staying afloat all the same. With an M of 4 after the break it will be double or bust time.
2:29: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand . . . it's Double: This happened whent the money got in preflop:
2:38: 4th in chips as we go to 2 tables.
3:08: Final Table, baby. I'm 5 out of 9 in chips after winning a race.
3:19: 6-handed now. I've got 180K or so in chips with an M of around 4. That's my lucky M!
3:27 At the break we are 5-handed. I'm 4th in chips but my table image results in folds. Respeck.
3:36: Out in fifth. Pushed with A6s and my lucky M and Blaze the chipleader found sevens. Big MTT cash, I think the biggest one I've had. Feels great. I'm tired. Good bye now.
I'm sure there will be more at some later date.
