Finally Embracing MTT Games!!!

While checking my wcoop sat tickets, I was surprised to see a Big Bang ticket, and that was a day or two before the event.  Had I not checked that day, I am pretty sure I would have missed it.  I have been on the red line for a couple of days and I really thought I shouldn't open PStars and just have a couple of days break.  So, I guess freeroll is ok.  At least I won't be losing anymore of my bankroll.

After a losing streak, it would be nice if I win the Big Bang I thought to myself.  I decided to get a good rest, but a lot of things keeps popping in my mind and failed to get a good sleep. I woke up 2-3 hours earlier.  I tried to keep myself awake going through my FB.  Alas, a few minutes before the Big Bang I felt tired and decided to lay down for a while.  Naturally I fell asleep... and woke up startled by the PStars warning beep...  it was already 12 minutes into the tourney, I had an AKs, and PStars is prompting me for action.  That was the 13th hand...  and won a good pot.  

I doubled up once with JJ when I had 15bb left.  From then, my stack  drops steadily, until i had only 3bb left.  I think I was already in the money and final table is near... then I got KQs, "Oh, I am going to shove" i thought to myself... then a guy with 8bb stack shove before me!  I thought, I wouldn't get any card better than that, I will be blinded out if I fold... so I called and doubled up vs. 66.

I managed to climb back again to 19bb, by that time I was sure I had a good chance of reaching the final table... my "hopes" even told me I could actually win that Big Bang when I reached final table... sure I had only 8bb left, but the largest stack was only a little more than twice my stack.  I was all fired up and quite determined to win the Big Bang that day.
