Like Niagara, I fall....
Although I really wanted to do much better than eighth last night, I will take the result based on how well I actually played for the most part. I managed to make some good reads at critical times and that included some great folds and some even better re-raises. No real complaints about how I went out either. In a situation where chips are gold and I was playing with a pile of Silver, I made a decision to race what I had to believe was a pair. I wasn't sure how big the pair was, but I really believed that I might have two overs with my suited Asian-Jew. I took a second or two to think it over, and then I jammed my stack on top of the initial bet.
It turned out I was a 2:1 dog and only in on about a 32% chance against pocket Queens. It was a calculated risk I felt nescessary to get me to the next level of play. It didn't work and IGH. But cest' la vie, that's why it's called gambling right!
Thanks for all the comments, e-mails and IM's yesterday to say you were happy I'm still here and all. It really means a lot to me that someone else out there actually cares. It makes me live more too and we could all do with a lot more of that!
On that note, I've just decided to take Peb's away for our 14th. or 15th. honeymoon this weekend. All is booked and off weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee go ! Have a great weekend everyone! I know I will.
My sincerest thanks for dropping by....
