My foray back into blogger tournaments hasn't gone the way I hoped. My game has been solid, but not spectacular. I've avoided the big mistakes but have also failed to take advantage of a few opportunities. In both the Run Good Challenge and last night's Turkey Day Cup hosted by Pauly, I've found myself in pretty good shape deep in the tournament.
And then it happened.
In the RCG, my AQ fell to AT. In the Turkey Day Cup, my AK lost to Joanne's A6. Not only did the latter one cripple me (I went out shortly there after when my push with A9 was called by AJ and I didn't improve), but it also virtually cost me my last longer bet with Joanne. She would go on to carry my chips into 5th place, I believe.
When you get all in with someone preflop holding a bigger ace, you're generally a 3-to-1 favorite. Maybe that's my problem. You can't exactly be a Luckbox if you're always getting your chips in when you're ahead!
