2nd Shot at Sunday Million ...

By: Fugu123 @ 18:45 (EST) / 495 / Comment ( 4 )

 Well, i played my Sunday Million ticket that I won in PSO Million Club promo this week. Maybe it was a bad idea, maybe not, but I didn't get very many playable hands. I did however play the few I got well, so I guess I have nothing to be ashamed of. I went out around the 2100 mark, AA vs 97 os. Now , many people will argue the way I played the hand, only 3x raising in early position, but I was low-stacked, and needed action on my monsters. BB called my raise , and hit 9 on flop. I shoved, hoping he had hit something and was going to call me. I got the action , but lost to a river 9 , giving him trips. Some say I should have shoved, and maybe they are right, but , I really think the BB had such a big stack compared to mine, that he would have called me even if i shoved. Then the other thought is, if I shove , and someone else calls or reraises, he might not be in the hand. In hindsight , I see a case for this too, but really, when I think about it, I needed callers because I needed chips. I had the nuts pre-flop, and wasn't going to back down from anyone. A small pot there would do nothing for my stack, but a 2-3 up would get me ITM. I took my chances and lost. You will not hear me bitch or complain about it, that is just how it goes, sometimes you win ,sometimes you lose. You have to be able to take it on the chin, get up off the ground, straighten yourself up , and get back in the game. It is a game of skill and luck, and we only control one of those.

 I will try my luck again, and hope for a better result.
