Sitting at MSP waiting to board my flight home. Thanks for everything @Trihonda - poker, ATV’s, shooting range, and Spotted Cow were all great. I enjoyed meeting some new PCF’ers - @NotABot , @Belgian_Aler , and @Sparkynutz plus locals @BukNaked36 , Paul, and Mike.
Special thanks to my travel buddy @inca911 for the road trip. It’s always great to reconnect and I’m already looking forward to the KC straddle.
i think payouts were like 460/300/160 (not including bounties).
I was extremely card dead for the first 3/4 of the tourney. My turn-around was when I limp UTG with AA, an immediate shove by @k9dr with AQo, and a reshove by Vegas Paul with 77…. I just had both covered and my aces held.
the very next hamd, I get ATo in the EP vs @BukNaked36 who was to my left. When it’s limped to me, I ship it in (maybe 20bbs). @BukNaked36 calls (he has me barely covered and rolls over KK. I spike an A and double up. I now have the table covered, but it wasn’t a cake walk. @Belgian_Aler was a cockroach (I say it in the nicest way). He just wouldn’t die. At one point he had 1/2 a BB, and I doubled him up like a dozen times…. (Well, it seemed like a lot). I had big Ace hands AIPF against his 76o type hands and he catches a pair, and so on….
huge thanks to those who were able to stay and help with clean up Sun morning…. It was beyond helpful. Even with the help, I was at the cabin until after 6pm cleaning and packing. Lol. I can’t imagine how late I’d have been if I didn’t get the help.
