A min-cash is better than nothing, or is it?
It was a succesion of bad hands that were raised ahead of me. I had ♠A ♠6 in the small blind once, raised and the big blind moved all-in, oops. I lost with A-K to 5-5 for about half my stack.
My stack dribbled down until I had only 11 big blinds. A player bet 11K (the blinds were 5000/2500/500) with two callers to me in the big blind. I had ♥J ♦10, this player's favorite hand. I didn't have enough chips to have much fold equity, so only called. The flop was ♠K ♣Q ♦6, and I shoved. I was hoping no player had a king. If they did, then I had an open-ended straight draw as a backup plan.
Unfortunately, a player had K-Q for two pair. He called, and I failed to improve.
