50 Chips and a Chair

By: Ovalman @ 12:07 (EST) / 423 / Comment ( 4 )

I hate getting it in so early in a tourney but I think this spot was justified.


Many would just shove all in but I never gave up and didn't panic.

I wanted a load of limpers in this next spot but I'm calling any raise or shove. When I missed the flop completely I had to fold. I know I'm really short but still can pick a hand for all in.

Suited connectors are strong enough although I know I need to hit lucky.

Never panic again, just keep waiting on spots to accumulate chips.

Remember the whale that busted my KK? Unlucky bubbleboy.
