Riding on a Crazy Train

By: Acquitted425 @ 13:18 (EST) / 30 / Comment ( 0 )
Well it wasn't exactly Isidur1 action but yesterday was a rollercoaster! Four Tourney: First two had finishes in the middle of the pack the Third one had me knocked out in the first 250 (When QQ ran into KK and blew up)and then a miraculous recovery coming in the top 50 the second time in two days. I am almost at my goal of 10 PSO tournaments in a month and I have already reached my two cashes for the month. Given my previous PSO results I had no way of predicting this. SO all and all I am up 400 spots in the Leaderboard I am nearly 25 points above the average I set for myself and I am going well into my goals for the year. 

Now as for my favorite hand from yesterdays march: PokerStars Game #55322200589: Tournament #347990774, Freeroll Hold'em No Limit - Level XIII (600/1200) - 2011/01/03 19:54:08 ET

Seat 7: marty-t-07 folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 8: dagallon folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 9: ducedroppin folded before Flop (didn't bet)

The key to this hand was YoungSwaggr's check on the turn. If he had it he'd have pushed. After I had two pair I knew I had the best kicker. I figured even if he had a pocket pair it was 22 or33 and that we would both be playing the board with my A as the nuts kicker. I proved to be right and I turned it on from there.
