Had a good time playing the Friday Nite Paltalk tourney. I don' t usually get to play this tournament and it was fun to see everyone.
I got ppK 5 times in the first hour and could get absolutely no traction. Managed to maintain around avg stack then started to loose ground fast when the blinds got to 400/800. I was down to 2k and managed to survive way to many all-ins to recover and become chip leader.
This was short lived as the blinds became so high around the bubble (20 players), it was all pre-flop poker. No special hands, stealing enough to survive and arrive at final table with avg stack. everyone is around 10bb, so again it's pre-flop poker.
This tourney would be a lot more enjoyableif it wasn't such an all-in fest for the last 2 hours. Problem with that, it would go till 4am. AQ took me out again for a 5th place finish.
I'm with TheHazyOne, AQ has taken me out the last 3 tournaments. I think it was correct to push in all 3 cases (shallow money), it just won't bail me out.
