Last Night I played in my 5th EPT event in Milford MA, the Central Massachusetts Region. Placed 7th out of 32.
It was a long night of practicing patience. I had to fold so many times that at one point I was so frustrated, I went all in on a spade draw with A 8. Funniest thing was that the player that called me ($32K) was on the spade draw with K 10. The flush never came, my Ace played, and I doubled up. 🙂
Had $45K in chips when we were down to the final 16. Experienced two bad beats before we got to the final table. One was A K hearts beat by Q 8 off suit when board turned 4 diamonds flushing up his Q. It was against a very new player who should have folded after the flop.
Went to the final table with $9400. Blinds were $2000/$4000. We drew for seats and the dealer. As luck would have it, I ended up in the Big Blind. Great can’t even breathe before I have to go all in. Another player had even fewer chips than me, so, on the first hand two of us were all in. We both busted out, although I had a tiny tiny glimmer of hope when the flop came with 2 spades. I had two spades (5 3) in my hand. But… it wasn’t meant to be.
Made 91 points for the night. Enjoyed the bar-b-que chicken pizza and ziti with mushrooms – and – the players were friendly and good no limit hold’em players.
