"So Sick" I am :(

By: chillipops @ 21:55 (EDT) / 178 / Comment ( 0 )

Well I am soooo upset with myself so I thought I'd come on here and tell you guys about it as my friends just saying bad luck just isnt enough sypathy lol

On Thursday night I played (as I usually do) the "Online Pokershow Freeroll" you get to watch a weekly video of the week before's final table and then enter the given password and you get to play for 1st place is a free $215 ticket to the Sunday Million there are 25,000 players every week.

Do you know where you play in a tournament pretty regulally and on night it just goes soooo well you think "Hold on Im going to win this !" ?

Well thats where I was, after about 3 1/2 hours I was in 5th place with about 1,4000,000 in chips on cruise control............well.......or so I thought.

Half an hour later I was crying in my coffee mug ! I had finished 22nd, missed out on not only the ticket for the Million, but also 2-9th get a step 1 ticket which really could have helped me on my way to building a reasonable bankroll.

But even though I made without any shaddow of a doubt the biggest "Brain Fart" up to now as I think on the hand I had tilted its the only explanation, I had just lost 500k in a hand running either AA or KK into a weaker holding an getting sucked the hand before. I held Q7 id like to say suited but I dont think it was, SB to BB I just pushed, oh dear ! woe is me :( lol BB called and turned 88 over.  You know the rest 

It really was on par with a few tournaments I have managed to place in, I satellited into the 10 aniv million and beat about 1800 to first which was very cool (didnt get anywhere tho there were 65,000 in the main event), also in the last couple of weeks I have managed to satellite into the Sunday Storm twice didnt cash in it yet tho but I will win it one day ! (soon I hope) its just a case of building my skill level and learning more through Poker School Online.

I am really begining to enjoy my poker experience with "Stars" and growing my reads and confidence, I have played on (am I allowed to say Party P***** ?) a different site for a few years and have had varied sucess but some notebles I learned a lot there too ill tell you all about it sometime :wink:

Anyway thanks for reading (you'd think I'd be more misserable than not playing in the mocro's eh ??) well Im not I do tho however wish I could have qualied again, but will see what happens next week :)
