You have to win the flips
I finished 49th for a min-cash in the PPC tournament that is being played in Tunica at the Horseshoe Casino.
Two hands went against me where I was on a coin flip, and that was deadly. When the blinds were 2500/5000/500, I was in the big blind. A short stack shoved for 19K and it folded to me in the big blind. I called with 7-7 to see I up against A-Q. A queen came and the pot went -- went to my opponent, that is.
When I had drifted down to about 40K and the blinds were 3000/6000/1000, I was again in the big blind, this time with A-9. The button raised and I shoved. He called with 7-7, and this time the sevens held up, and I was walking to the rail. Too bad, as first place paid about $26,000 and a trip to Aruba.
I think it is Lucki Duck (and probably others) who say you gotta win the flips. He's a wise man.
