Nope. I got my money in with the best hand the rest is luck. The hand vs. Sharonique I did misplay. I was not paying attention close enough and way over bet the pot. A pot size bet on the flop is still probably called but a turn all-in may not have been. No way to know. As played, her call was still marginal. 1MyWynner1 called probably thinking he was in a coin flip. He figured wrong and still won, that's poker. I will take this play all day every day. BenWa surprised me a bit. We played back and forth quite a bit. For all intents and purposes he put his tournament on the line with two overcards to the board. Once again I like my chances here on a regular basis. The KQo call was actually legitamite. It was 7000 to him in a pot of 14500. It was about 20% of his stack and by his body language when he flipped his hand over he seemed to be hoping he held two overs to my small or medium pair. He was wrong but he still had the odds to call. And to address my stack size in the live tournament. I did have only 5x the BB or so but, with only 65 people in the tournament and not everyone had rebought, 25k was going to be an average stack at the final table. So a single double up, such as this opportunity, would have improved me greatly. The problem with getting it all in with the best of it is that you still lose hands. It's better than the other way around though. If you get angry about such losses be sure that it is a quick "SOB that SUX!" and you're over it. If you let it linger you will begin to make bad plays and things will get worse. If you play well and keep playing well you will get your fair share of wins.
