Min-raised called small stack shove preflop with Aces.

Think I'm getting paid - but nope

http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...380_D88DE57803

40 chips left - 30 after the ante goes in.

Pocket 4s in the hole

http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...407_CF5EE366A9

folded 3-9 offsuit - a hand that would have won here v KK/AQo

http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...694_E764110123

folded the BB for less than a BB - wasn't bothered about continuing

http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...737_59BCA80B9C

so I am put all-in automatically with QTo in the SB

http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...782_FDEDABB585

next hand I get a premium - QQ

http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...812_744E442DF3

back above starting stack - over 10BBs

2 hands later tried a shove with AQo

Crazy crazy board - four way pot - I hit nothing - one opp flops a set - board runs out all clubs

http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...488_9916E36108

!!!!!

Thats some turnaround in luck from getting my rockets pumped.

Never give up!

Come unstuck against a monster - but survive

http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...033_94CC7BEE95

Was trying for a check raise on flop for 'trickiness' and betting turn for 'shooter'.

Get back over 40K with another premium holding

Gotta laugh at the exit hand.

Nicely book-ends this little run.

It's now official - pocket aces have a 50% win rate - its basically a flip!



Got my one cent though...

PokerStars Tournament #824280505, No Limit Hold'em
Freeroll 10000 players
$10.00 USD added to the prize pool by PokerStars
Total Prize Pool: $10.00 USD
Tournament started 2013/12/10 14:00:00 WET [2013/12/10 9:00:00 ET]

Dear EdinFreeMan,

You finished the tournament in 65th place. A USD 0.01 award has been credited to your Real Money account.


Not as good as the five cents I got when I bubbled the FT for tenth spot a few days ago.

But a fun ride from nearly busting around 4000th after 45mins and coming back from 40 chips.

Almost time to reg for the next one too....
