It Didn't Take Long

Well it didn’t take long to get five first and/or second places in the Maui SNGs. I did it on my first five tries and got the $200 bonus put into my account today. It seemed like an easy way to pick up $200 and it was for the most part. On my first three SNGs I skated into the top two winning one of them and being the chip leader in the other two before being smacked in the face by lady luck each time.

In each of the final two SNGs I had to come back from a short stack to get in a position to place high. In both instances, I pushed the medium stacks until I was in better shape and picked my spots for continued aggression. In the last one, I went from 330 chips to 8000 chips when we were down to two players. Mother variance hit me in the nards as I lost with my AK to A5, KQ to Q10, and finally I was cold decked as my pocket 7’s didn’t improve to my opponents pocket 9’s. Overall, I’ll take the $200 and the money won from the SNGs. + $255 for the day. That puts me at just under $400 in my quest.

********************

M pitched well last night and picked up the victory. She gave up two runs during her stint on the mound and drove in the game-tying run in the bottom of the fifth inning. It was the team’s first victory of the season so all is well.

L plays tonight so hopefully she continue to pitch well.
