I wanted to update that post a bit earlier and elaborate, but I've been pretty busy today. I was so freaking fried last night after that tournament, it was truly the most grueling final table I've been in in a long time. I totally effed up the screenshot of the beginning of the final table where I had a majority of the chips in play.
The ironic part of it is that I had just watched the WSOP circuit event in New Orleans with Gavin Smith the other night. Gavin came into that final table with a HUGE stack and kept plugging away at opponents, seemingly regardless of his cards. Unfortunately for him his aggression got the better of him and he wound up taking second.
I was determined to win this one.
When we got 4 handed I still had a massive lead over perennial MATH final tabler DrRaz(get a blog you poof), Don the weak tight pushmonkey (just kidding don), and mowenMRTIGHTumdown. DrRaz was picking off blinds, playing my role for me as I dodged and weaved. Kelly took a tough beat by don to be bubble boy, and I figured things would be over quickly. I was sadly mistaken.
The lead probably changed at least 5 times, 3 handed I got as low as ~T5000 chips, but I was finally able to dispatch Don. Heads up was truly a battle. You may recall last week TripJax and I were heads up and in the mook and I could not keep up with the aggression. This weeks MATH was very similar, however this week everytime I made a stand, I made a hand, almost every time as an underdog. I put a few seriously bad beats on Raz before finally making it through. I was spent, no other way to describe it.
Thanks alot to the ATL homies, My brother (king1112), KJ, surf, and
todd for the encouragement, it does mean alot.
