Mookie bustout

I decided to grace the bloggers with my presence and play the Mookie tonight. 14/59 is the final result, but that doesn't tell the whole story.

I was in first place with twice the chip stack of the second place guy for nearly an hour! And I blew up in fine Mike Matusow style. First, I decide to push AcJc against a short-ish stacked LJ who raised me in the small blind when I limped UTG. I shove on her and she tanks for a bit but calls with 99. I didn't hit a thing, though I had a flush draw, and she doubles up. Then I double up another short stack when I run my 55 into KQ and a Queen flops. I manage to build it back up again when I run late in the tournament into the cooler.

I bust out a few hands later running Ad7d into AKo and a K and a 7 both flop.


I had been playing really well and to lose out to a few races is icky. I feel dirty.

gotta be honest, i was FLOORED to see you turn over AJcc on that limp shove. you looked so strong i actually thought i might be up AA, but w/ my stack behind i decided to call and pray. it was still just a flip, but very surprised at how you played it.

the AA v. KK was such a massive cooler.

Oh, I know I overplayed it but I had a few considerations there.

One, I honestly thought you were trying to steal from the blind so I actually wanted you to call because I thought your hand was weaker than it was.

Two, there was another big stack in the SB and I was afraid he would call if I just called so I needed to raise. I figured if I represented *big* he would fold a marginal hand.
