NEVER GIVE UP / chip & a chair theory

By: Dreams78 @ 06:50 (EDT) / 919 / Comment ( 6 )

You always hear the chip & and chair theory... but never really believe it.

Well last night i started believing :)

As the second break hit in the PSO 9pm, I took a bad beat and as the break started i was left with 74 chips.  Yes thats right 74. :(      The blinds were at 400 and 800 with anti of 75.   Usually I would just sit out and consider it a wash.  I was in 551 of 553 with my 74 chips and needed a miracle.

First hand after the break was K 5..... and what do u know I hit trip 5's  and have 670 chips... I let the next 2 hands go knowing i only had 2 after that to choose from... and then right before the blind hits me.... my eyes light up .. the rockets :) .  I dont push because they guy in BB has been pushing 4 of the last 6 hands so i try to maximize by letting others call b4.  It works.. he pushes...It holds for me.... I Win 3400 :)

So now I am in BB.. i get Q 10 ... 4 callers.. no raises and flop comes Q 10  7  all clubs.  I dont want another club coming.. so I pushed.... the clown called with 7 9 (1 club).. and he didnt hit  :) :) :)

So I started after 2nd break with 74 chips...... 6 minutes, 6 hands later..... I had over 18000 chips :)

I could have just sat out at break and took my 550 placing... but I didnt and I ended up moving to top 200 and increasing my points :)
