another deep run

Thursday 9/27 The Bicycle Casino 6pm – $150 Deepstack Big Poker Oktober 20K Event #8
last night i continued my string of 3 straight deep runs by finishing 16th out of 223. on one hand, it’s something to be proud of, but i feel like i should have done better. with 20 players left i called and lost two important all ins against 2 different short stacks. the first was qq vs aq – the guy rivered an ace. the second was aj vs t8 and he turned a ten. these hits resulted in a loss of over a third of my chips. with the blinds going up and a very untimely drought of cards i pushed with 99 on the button only to be called by aces in the big blind. im not sure how else i could have played it. if those 2 hands mentioned above had gone my way i probably would have just called those nines instead of shoving them. alas…this is a moot point. overall my play was impeccable with 2 incredible hero calls. they really weren’t hero calls though because i knew my reads were correct (thus the calls) but that’s how it looked from the outside. anyway, thanks to my one person rail of courtenay who came out to root me on.
