Third time's a charm
I was running good, as they say, so decided to enter a third MTT on Bovada. No second place or any of that stuff -- had my MOJO workin'.
This was only a $5 tournament and I noticed at the final table the players weren't as good as at the higher levels. With eight left, a player who was third in chips moved all in from early position. Everyone folded and he proudly showed his Q-Q. Huh? He left some money on the table didn't he? They were afraid to play poker, so lots of shoving. I just sat back and waited, like a sniper in a tree.
Last hand, villain had A-5 and limped from the button. I made a big raise with 9-9 and he shoved. I was suspicious, but finally called and my hand held up.
