i won

event #12 MM

Can i brag yet?

Just wanted to do a bit of a recap of the tournament:

So i register about 40 minutes into the tournament and get a quick double up hitting a straight on the turn from there on in it felt like i coasted until the 4 hour mark. The hand that tilted the scale in my favor was cracking AA with my JJ with around 400 people left to put me in the lead.

Before i knew it i was on final 4 tables.. and this was probally the biggest test of my online poker career to date but i did get a nice pot cracking AA, a min raise UTG got it folded around to me and i have 66 in the BB so i called and the flop came TT6 with both over 1.5M with the average stack around 800k i tried to extract as much value as i could by 3x is min raise on the flop .. after the turn a X it didnt take much to get it all in and with that i was on my way..

Second last table didnt come without it's tests though, It felt like it was 2 tables for hours.. one hand i had was QQ i was on the button with a min raise i 3 bet my QQ making it 4x then i see an instant shove it was for 3/4th of my stack i didn't really want to call because didn't know if it was a cooler so i timed down and got the courage to fold the ladies telling my opponent with him replying "A-A" which i don't know weather to believe or not. A few more plays and i go into the FT 2nd in chips by about 1mil off the leader.

I decided to hang back and try jump up The pays.. but with a few dud hands and blinds increasing i found myself in 5th spot with 14BB with 5 runners left.I was pretty much pleading for a deal for about 15 minutes until i finally got everyone to tick the little box and i was happy with taking $3.500 + giving up some for "KEHOE86"
who was chip leader at the time & wanted more money.

After 40 minutes of discussion KEHOE86 was been so greedy over $47 i decided to quit the deal and gamble which turned out to be the best decision i've made with "joebarteam23" doubling me up my AK vs AQ and then i got the urge to punish the greediness of KEBOE86 with a decent run of cards and 3/4 Betting in the right position i was sitting comfortable in 1st with 4 runners.

Waking up to AA on the button and with "Wolfrulez" shoving 55 was an easy pot with not much of a sweat
it was 3 runners including and and i decided to get a deal done even though i was sitting on 110M in chips and they both were sitting on 30M each in chips ive seen my share of final tables and know how quickly they change i gave them both a few hundred to bring them up to 5.5k ea and i took 7.3k and the tournament was over with $800 for first i busted KEHOE86 with a flush on the river which never felt sweeter & then eventually taking the championship Joebarteam23 K7os Vs my A7.

Great tournament alot of fun.
