Arrrrgh so frustrated right now, just blew of my stack with 99 when a jack came on the flop, so so stupid of me and such a great oppourtunity wasted. Turned out the tourny was a turbo which i dont like that much so very quickly found my self down to 15 blinds even though still had the starting stack.
Was my own stupidity that got me knocked out though, allin bluffs/semi bluffs are not a good idea espcially that early in a tourny againts a big stack :( .
Feeling rather idiotic right now so may wait a little while before going back to my bankroll building mission, then again, might not :)
