No seat for me
Tonight was my last chance to win a seat in the BBT Tournament of Champions sponsored by Full Tilt.
A key hand late: I had ♥3 ♠3 and the flop was ♣7 ♦3 ♦5 -- I had a set! Cardgrrl bet, Bambam moved all in and I also moved in. Cardgrrl got out of the way and Bambam showed ♦A ♦9. At this point I was a 72.6% to win. The turn was the♣8, and I was a 77.3% favorite (according the Card Player magazine's Odds Calculator). Notice that the ♦7 and the ♦8 are no longer outs for the Bammer -- he hits a flush, but I have a full house. He has, however, picked up a straight draw. The river was the ♦J to give him his flush and a 19K pot.
After that I was in shove or fold mode and went out with 8-8 (Smokee had a higher pocket pair).
There were 101 runners, and I finished 16th. For this, I got my 10 bucks back.
Good luck to all the winners.
