It was as crazy as I've ever seen. I had AA and KK in the first 10 hands but had T1020 when they were over. I fought my way back until I attempted to bust wil with my weak AK vs. his TT. Down to next to nothing, I pushed 7 times before getting called. Of course, when Waffles called me, I finally had a legit hand (JJ) and it held up. Suddenly I was in 2nd.
But then again, I wouldn't have been in that spot except for one of my top five all time suckouts a little earlier in the tourney:
I hold JJ and get all in with Waffles after a flop of 5c 6c 7c. I didn't have a club, but I knew Waffles didn't have two. I did, however fear he had one. Had I gotten the chance to push first, I don't think there's anyway he calls with pocket deuces (one of them a club). But there it was, I was ahead, but afraid. I was 55% to win and Waffles 40%. The turn was a 9 of clubs. Ugh. Suddenly, Waffles was 81%. I thought I was drawing dead.
But I forgot I'm The Luckbox.
The Q of clubs on the river chopped it up. It was a pivotal point for me and I'm sure it didn't make Waffles happy. Now he'll post about his 81%.
My tournament went all wrong when I battled wil again. This time I had KK and he had the weak AK. Of course, he flopped one Ace and turned another and I was crippled again. Thankfully, I slipped into the final table and cashed in 8th. It was a crazy tourney.
