frickin' sweet.

two nights ago i played in a $5 PL Hold'em/Omaha tourney. out of 72 people i ended up getting third place. profited me about $40.

tonight i just finished the same tourney, $5 PL Hold'em/Omaha tourney. Out of 55 people, i just won. profit of $90.

most of the tourney i was trailing too. i eked my way into the top 10 in 9th place with a chip stack of 2.5k when the blinds were maybe 80/160. I was still in the lower half of the remaining chip stacks even all the way to heads up - when it turned into heads up, chip lead had about 65k in chips and i had about 15k. i wrestled my way up to about 28k and then hit a critical omaha all-in where he hit the nut straight on the turn but i hit the full house on the river. After that, i took him out (still omaha) with a double gut-shot straight draw that caught to his single suit KK.

when there were five people left, the chip lead (pretty super aggressive) and the second chip lead (also pretty aggressive) both had about 32k in chips, and the second guy did one of the fucking stupidest things i've ever seen.

awww.... sorry.... dumbass chip aggression and you made away with $20 instead of $100. thanks for playing, idiot.

tourneys have done me well these days. aside from the above two records already mentioned, i've placed in the money i think in the past 7 out of 9 tourneys i've played. my tournament play has improved a great deal since reading those harrington books.
