Played most of my games this afternoon today as world cup final was always gonna distract me later on in the day.
Best result was 3rd/116 in a £20 multi for £220 but, as always theres always room to moan.
Had A7 vs J10 to have gone 1st/4 with almost double 2nd places chips.
Also KJ vs A2 to have gone 1st/4 with slightly less than above.
Finally exit was 78std vs QJ for pot to go 2nd/3, cant complain about that one.
Also had a small win of errr $80 or mayb $100 for 5th/72 in a $1000 freeroll.
Again pots at the final table in order (and not including lots of steals) were:
AJ vs 44 to have gone 1st/5
A8 vs A4 split when short stacked
K10 vs QJ pot odds when short stacked lost. would have improved to 4 players left.
AJ vs QJ won to double up
66 vs Q2sd won to double up and go 1st/5
K2 vs KQ lost to have gone massive chip leader of 4
A5std vs AA ! to have gone back into the lead but eliminated instead.
Blinds were huge so i was in almost every other pot to some extent using others chips to kind of freeroll but in the end just ran into bigger hands and i think the idiot that had virtually blinded out won about 20 pots in a row to win , thats poker.
I played 20euros and £27 games as well with no progress.
The only bigger entry of the day was the $150 30 min blinds game with only 11 entrants.
This paid to 4 and when i lost a big pot KK vs AJ of about 2800 to have gone joint 1st/8 with 5500 at only 30, 60 blinds i knew it wasnt my day.
Obviously i still had a great chance to recover but i overraised a raiser 6 handed with jj only to run into aa for a 4k pot.
Finally i overraised a raiser with AJ only to run into QQ and another QQ , apparantly another guy folded JJ that hand as well !!!
Ignoring the JJ factor i was actually in ok shape at about 32% to more than triple up but no help came so i was out 6th. Still would be 30%+ even if u took the jj factor into play.
Anyway on the day im up , bit annoying not to finally break the cycle of final table syndrome in a cash multi and win one for a change but it all helps and 3rd is better than 9th or 10th. £440 and £660 were 2nd and 1st in that £20 multi just for the record , so not huge but would have been a nice win to supplement further multi entrance fees for the month :(
