The horrible thing is it was ALL standard.

One failed 3bet cost me 50k early but everything else was 100% standard

I FUCKING HATE VARIANCE

If I had even finished 2-3 places higher it's a solid score but nooooooo ship the $600 when I started the FT with about 2.5k in equity.

Oh, 7th for like $685 for what it's worth. Just short of the real money obviously. Every play was optimal except maybe my 3bet from the BB with air over a button raiser who flatted and the AKx flop shut me down.

I ran so horribly at the final table.

If I had even finished 4th or 5th I wouldnt feel so bad but chipleader to seventh.

Mid downswing in a spot where top 3 erases most of the damage.

...and I run like garbage, lose every single pot bar an all in bluff with five high and finish seventh...

Now that my friends is the definition of variance

...and the definition of epic fail.

Is it me or have about ten rail threads in a row for me ended in the worst possible outcome... I mean come on, chipleader to seventh?

That final table was the worst soul crushing moment i've experienced post Aruba.

Okay, second worst after hearing villain say 'I didn't come here to lay down a set' on the last hand of Day 2 at Aussie Millions.

So sick. I ran SO good from 18-9 and then so bad from 9-7

On the plus side it's an improvement from my constant stream of 18th place finishes in 1200 player MTTs

Seriously, look at my OPR this week on PokerStars. Sure it isn't big volume but if you consider I was chipleader in two tournaments with 20 and 9 remaining and 2/25 in the third, ending up 18th, 19th and 7th while playing very close to optimally is very disillusioning

I go deep so often.

Okay rant almost over. Almost. Only five more posts of self pity allowed.

Okay, i'm over it. I'm still up like $500 for the day and I did win a 40/60 for my tournament life with 30 odd left.

Time to register for a few more before bed.

I know you're totally clueless when it comes to equity and such, but you're probably right that you're due for a nice score by now. So better luck next time.

If you look at the payout structure and factor in my chiplead starting the final table, my equity is about 2k.

So technically I lost a little over 1k but whatever.

Look at my OPR and the deep run to score ratio over the past 3 months.

Sure I ran hot for a while before but this is pretty abysmal.

This week alone i've been 1/28, 2/25 and 1/9 in 700-1200 field tournaments and finished 18th, 19th and 7th respectively without making any major errors.

Going back to my last 20 top 30 finishes in 300+ fields, my best finish is seventh. I can count on one hand the number of tournaments where my exit was due to a mistake.
