I played in event 23 today ($355 buy-in). Was playing what I thought was pretty solid poker all the way thru.
In the first 2 hr session, I basically doubled my starting stack. The key hand there was holding QQ, flopping a Q that turned into a full house (another guy had 6's full of 7's). I did bet a bunch there, but didn't want to push..... just incase the guy had pkt 7's.
The second 2 hour session, I was basically treaded water, gained about 2k chips from the end of the first session.
The third 2-hour session, I was totally card dead for most of it... although I made a few good to great folds (KK being one of them). About 25 min before the dinner break, I was about 2k chips below the chip average and got dealt AA for the first time all day. Level was 250/500 with 50 and I opened the betting by raising to 2k. Called by 4 players. Flop was 3 suited rainbow J 7 2. Turn was a blank...Pushed and got called by a guy with basically an even stack of chips to me. He had J 10 spades..... sees my aces and says "wow, I misread you on that one", as he thought I was bluffing with AK or AQ and didn't want any action on the hand. River.... 10.

With how many chips were in that pot and what the chip average was at the dinner break, I'd have had well over double the average stack and more than likely enough chips to cash, even if I didn't win another hand (based on the stack size I had when I played 2 years ago... I missed there by 9 places and I'd have had 15k chips more than then... with about 1/2 the chips in play).

At least if I had to get KO'd, I went out fighting with the best hand by far (88.71% according to the odds calculator on here) and put myself in a position that with 1 huge hand holding, I was in solid cash position.

Only one for now. Gotta get the bankroll back up before I can play in another.

Sucks to go out on a beat like that. Sorry to hear. I'm sure you'll do great if you play another though.
