Wow my biggest MTT cash

I think.

$384 for 4th in the $5.50 NL tourney this morning. 1291 runners. Way shortstacked until midway through the 2nd hour when I finally got some traction. From then it was just building my chips with steals and reraises. The players are so horrible in these.

Huge hand was when there was about 60 left and I am one of two big stacks at table that's in top 6 in chips. He raises utg to 4800 (3x blind) and I push 62k with KK. He almost instacalls and I assume he has aces. AKsoooooted. Wow. Somehow he missed and I rake in a 124k pot when the average is 28k. Amazing. From there I shot up until with 44 left i have about 160k and the chipleader has 170k and 3rd had less than 100k when pokerstars places the chipleader to my IMMEDIATE left. Oh well.

Treaded water until getting moved again with 20 something left and then built it up to over 200k - always in the top 3. Then I get moved with 18 left and guess who is to my immediate left again. It stayed that way until I busted to him with AJ after he had raised to 60k and I pushed 200k in. He had been extremely aggressive and I was more than shocked when he turned over AK. I probably could've gotten 2nd if I had not made that move but I have no complaints.

I played great and got good cards that usually held when they were favorites. Once I got chips I just rolled and people were more than willing to give me their chips with few outs. That's what sucky players do.

Tournies like that are so much fun.

Ah, so I decided to 4 table $25 PLO tonight (the highest I had been playing was $10) and made around $85 in an hour. Wow, bad players there too. My favorite hand was top set with a flush draw against TWO pair all in on the flop. When the flush hit the turn i figured i was beat. Nope. He had zero redraws. Wow.

Playing in the weekly NL tourney now. Quads got me to 2nd in chips with 11 left (18 started). We'll see.

oh yea - i played in a 6 person $6.50 sng to warm up and got KK first hand. Over-raised to 240 since there were 4 limpers and I assumed someone might push and sure enough but 1010 hit runner runner flush. Oh well. :)
