I would love to be playing this event, but I has to go before the judge tomorrow (no I didn't do anything illegal, it's a moot court ).

I'll do my best to run hotter than the sun for you. When you get back, you can Imper1um my account at the final table and get one outered repeatedly until you lose it all.

1183 runners. 2 players busted on the first hand. 3000 starting stacks. 15/30 starting blinds.

Skeptix is playing, so am I, not sure if any other Ptippers are around yet. I drew a table full of randoms, no pros or name players to be found.

Currently 1175 players remaining. I haven't played a hand yet.

Always helpful to turn the nuts with a redraw to a royal flush.

This bodes well for me.

Hotter than the sun, baby!

... or not. I run like TWLLM

First hand - I have AAxx two spades. Pot it, guy with half my stack calls. 337 flop with two spades. I bet 3/4 pot, he shoves over me, I call. He tables KKxx with two spades and two clubs. He catches running clubs to take half my stack. Drawing to 2 outs or running clubs. Now I know how TWLLM feels all the time. Why now though, why not in my .25/.5 cash game

Second hand - I have KKQx with two hearts. Guy in EP pots, four callers, I call.

Flop 874 rainbow. SB checks, I check, we all check.

Turn K rainbow. SB fires pot (1050). I figure there's a 50% chance he has 56 and was looking to c/r on the flop but there's an equal chance that he has something else like top two pair; after all my table has been bad and spewy so far. I'm getting almost 2-1 on a shove and I have a redraw to the nuts if he does have 65. I move in for my last 1400 or so, he calls, has 65, river is a blank, GG. Sadly, I wouldn't have been put in this situation if my first hand held as I would have had a large enough stack to either muck it or flat and muck the river when I didn't fill up.

I'll stick with NLH tournaments and Omaha cash games. Bring on some NLH FTOPS events.

I'm amazed at how fast this became an ultra-shortstack tournament. I guess 50BB in PL Omaha is a LOT less than 50BB in NL Hold'em.

Fortunately, I bought 5% of skeptix in exchange for him getting 5% of me (sorry skeptix, I suck, I didn't even get a bounty). So it's up to Skeptix to win 4k+ for me to win my buy-in back. Fortunately, he's steaming along, was up to about 7.5k when I busted.

All unsold shares are effectively shares I bought in myself. I can do with those as I please.

I'm rolling right along at the first break with 7561 and 1 Bounty.

Hand too strong to r/f, too weak to r/c, too strong to open-fold since pushing is massively +EV, so, by process of elimination, we arrive at my favorite play
