4855 at first break. Very uneventful table full of TAGs/rocks, the main fish busted already and the only LAG/solid type guy is directly to my right so i'm hoping i'm at this table for a long time.

Haven't been involved in a major postflop pot yet; took one down with a cbet and check/folded another. Very uneventful.

Haven't really had anything so far. Blinded away to 4545 a bit after the first break.

I actually thought villain had a set a lot when he led on a board of that context (since overpairs are unlikely with preflop, I have Ac in my hand and he probably checkraises a flush) so I felt I have to raise and leave him room to shove over me.

I was close but fortunately, villain was drawing dead instead.

First time i've folded QQ pre in, well, a long time. I almost flatted for this very reason; I have no idea what to do if he comes back over me. I'm pretty sure JJ/TT/AQ would flat me here so he should have KK/AA/AK most of the time since he has shown no indication of being a maniac.

Problem is villain has only been at the table for six hands and has folded every hand preflop so far. I'm pretty happy with the fold, but it does suck.

The tank/reraise should be aces more often than not I think.

Sigh, nit catches his king

Still well above the average but the last 20 hands or so have sucked.

Well, looks like we'll cap at 6 tables from here on out. At the 2nd break we got 6065. This tournament will take forever, so chipping up slowly is fine.
