  • Red Spade Open 1M Gtd

    It really hurts when you play a big tournament close to perfect and loose beeing a huge favorit.

    263 left of 28,338

    I have about 10 BB.

    Im on the BB, its folded to the SB who puts me all in. I have AA, he has 67.

    Flop 267, over.

    Why cant those hands hold in those key spots to get a chance of a BIG payday

      it's still a good run. umbup: AA will lose those about 1 in 4 unfortunately.... I got KO'd from a WSOP-Circuit with them this last spring... it'll happen live and online, as the same odds hold.

            A couple of months ago in the Premier League after the bubble burst, I shoved QQ in early position and got called by somebody in later position who had AA. And I wound up hitting my two-outer and the other person got eliminted. Which felt awful, because what with everybody being so good in the league, sometimes it seems like the chance to make ITM is only going to happen once every handful of times - and then for this person, with this being their time, this had to happen So then the next day I was checking out the two of our scores, and it turns out that person who got their aces cracked by me actually went on to do even better the next day - they went up all the way to 1st place in the next tourney they played umbup: I know PSSL's different from the Red Spade Open, but I guess I'm just trying to say that maybe if you're thinking this this was the time you had your chance at the big one, maybe the time'll be next week or the week after? And now you've got enough money to buy buy-ins for more tries Sometimes poker can be kind of cruel, eh? But there's always that next time Here's hoping it's somebody's turn from PSO to hit it big in one of the upcoming 10th Anniversary events - one of the weekly things, or the World Record, or the Sunday Storm umbup: PS Nice to see a familiar face at the 10th Anniversary Satellite tourney the other day AJEI
