Am playing. 3.5 hours in. 60k chips (average 45k), 9200 - 1500 left - 1170 ITM. Chipleader jorguhna (UK).

A bit out of my price range, so am rather uhm nervous. But paid for with t-money, so what the hey.

Have met several nice people with a lot of active chatting that I enjoy. Will post my sorry demise when it comes


And a sorry demise it was. Analysis: ITM too important for me (and probably rightfully so given I was playing above my comfort range), so blinded down to 9 BB basically (though with a little effort here and there). Did not get cards ITM until 4BB, then first in shove midposition A5s. Defeated by A9 unsuited on BB (he had me covered barely).

-5,5-5,0(rebuy)+ 16,4 = +5,9

In retrospect: The speed at which people were dying after the bubble gave me about a lawyers hourly rate. Following logic of doing opposite of everyone else: I should have just gone with the blind out principle I had running. Highest dollar EV I think. Could have shoved at 1-3BB when truly desperate and time basically out anyway.
