MATH win!!



I must be dreaming...I won a BBT3 event!

I really didn't give myself much of a chance with 4 tables left. I just played in survival mode until the bubble broke, then opened up a little. At the final table i was in last position and just played real tight and position.

I was sitting near the bubble for most of the time. I just waited until the right places/cards and pushed.

Here's the hand that solidified 2nd place.

Full Tilt Poker Game #6040943796: Mondays at the Hoy (45101284), Table 6 - 1500/3000 Ante 400 - No Limit Hold'em - 1:34:42 ET - 2008/04/15

Seat 2: hellory (button) folded before the Flop
Seat 4: pureprophet (small blind) folded before the Flop
Seat 5: iam23skidoo (big blind) collected (25,200)

It smelt like a weak steal, and I went for it. I was right.

I never had a lead since Hellory was killin' and there were several huge stacks.
Hellory took 4th in the 32K so I know I'm up against a solid player, but he was playing fairly passive and tight IMO. He might have just been putting a little more emphasis on the 32K. Here I slow played aces and won on a scary flop.
