Wow, really fun tournament, 1 mistake spoiler maybe, read til the end, it comes late.....

I double up early with TT vs AQ. flop 662, I shove, called, turn comes 6, river comes 3. TT hold up to 3K.

raise 3 BB with AA no action, maybe should have checked......looking to build a pot here....

A7 in the BB facing raise and re-raise, I fold, guy shoves with A2, flop comes 278. A2 wins 9K pot with pair of deuces. Missed opportunity but A 7 too raggy for me there. make note on the A2 donk.

PSO member pecheurs joins the table as SS. A9 UTG I fold. Pecheurs out.

Get moved with 7K. New table has 13K and 17K stacks. K T sooted UTG I open for 3 BB, 17K shoves, I fold.

addon break I decline 2500 chips for $0.30 makes no sense with 6K facing stacks of  2@10K, 3@15K.......I.m 61/131.....

blinds 125/250

A3 sooted I fold UTG. good fold....... not sure? weak hand in that position IMO

I pick up 1K on an AA river runout bluff. Pickup 2K on TT with flop 6T3, I raise small ball with set. no action....3rd time with TT this game....

Tourney gets really fun when villian shoves 99 and gets rivered by broadway draw that hits. Goes on a long rant about the site being rigged. was a flip at best, and caller had pot odds. Lots of foul language by a sore loser lol.

called limper with A7 flop comes AA2 2 diamonds, turn 3 diamonds, check check he shows flush, got there on the turn.....ezed check check for me, only playing FH if it hits.....

next hand I get 99, I shove for 20 BB, only seemed fitting given the whiner's 99 rant, no callers, I chip up!

blinds 300/600 I have JJ, check, get player to my left open for 4K, I raise to 5k to put him ai, he shows A4 sooted, flop comes 2 spades, I fade the draw, up to 10K.....

next hand A3 spades in the cutoff, I lead 3BB, get raised, fold, flop comes 3, turn comes 3, would have hit set, no worries, still a good fold IMO, maybe should have flatted....

later I fold T3 would have hit fh, no worries

blinds 400/800

pick up blinds with T7 and KJ, etc. always looking for spots to chip up

KK I raise 3 BB, get shove with 99 (maybe in tribute to the whiner), I call, fade flush draw, up to 27K......

steal more pots with KT, AJ, etc.

AA raise 3 BB no action....

2nd break 13/22 with 31K, blinds at 600/1200

shove with AK vs QQ, QQ rivers the flush.....I had a read on him where he was overbetting A rag....

1 mistake. always say AK is just a drawing hand lol.......

1st hand where i wasn't sure i had best, went with my read

finished 19th out of 447 runners 99 rebuys, 29 addons


Good luck everyone!
