I've been running meh on Bovada -- lots of min-cashes or near-misses. When I logged on this morning, two bridge players from Raleigh (Wayne and Lance) were there, and we all agreed to play the $3.30 rebuy and add-on at 11:30 CDT. For $3,
The three of us waited until the first break, then entered and did the add-on for a total investment of $6.30. The add-on gives you T10,000, so why do the rebuy? In fact, why even enter before the break unless you intend to play tight as a clam.
One of my buddies did the Annette Obrestad thing: he covered his hole cards and played position and stack sizes. He lasted a couple of hours, but finally busted out. The other guy went deep, but went card dead, then was eliminated when his 10-10 lost to A-Q. You gotta win the flips as a certain blogger says.
At the final table, I was dealt a series of good hands. When we were down to three, I had slightly more chips (1,037,000) than the other two combined. On the last hand, the short-stack shoved for 411K, and the other guy with 505K called. I had ♥A ♣Q and also shoved, making the second guy put the rest in. The first guy had two rags (♣10 ♠8), the second guy had ♦7 ♣7. An ace on the flop pretty much sealed the deal. It's nice to run goot.
