Main Event run ends
I'm sitting in my room watching poker on TV. An hour or so ago, I was playing in the event. Playing is more fun than watching.
I started with 14 big blinds. Early I shoved with 9-9 and everyone folded. The blinds and antes ground me down and I shoved with A-K and again with A-J. It's tough with a short stack. You basically have to shove or fold. Raising and then having to fold to a three-bet is a recipe for disaster. I shoved one last time from the cut-off on a steal and the BB called with A-J. I whiffed the board and was gone.
I've got to come back and play again next year. Even though I don't like my result, I enjoyed playing and the excitement.
