Costly Mistake

By: VareckRay @ 20:08 (EDT) / 388 / Comment ( 2 )

Earlier today I mentioned that I was having a problem with PS MTTs. People getting lucky maybe but also I thought it was mistakes I was making for various reasons.

Here is the mistake that cost me a much better finish in the 12k turbo

Slow played trips but I can't believe what I did on the river. I should've just checked. The villain was a bit wild, calling a lot but I knew he might have the straight. And I really can't believe myself calling his check raise when I knew then he did.

Lesson learned I hope lol, finished 60ish for $14 and I am really annoyed with myself because I was looking good for a much better finish.
