It was a very comfortable stack, with the average stack still around $150k.
Unfortunately, I also had my worst table draw of the tournament and one of the tougher table draws of my career.
Andy Black and Kevin "BeL0WaB0Ve" Saul were all at my table with huge stacks. Oh, and to make things worse, they were all on my left.
With just over 100 players left and only 80 places paid, my original plan was to attack the money bubble and pick up some chips with little resistance. But with this lineup of great players who had no fear of bubbling, and who had position on me, I'd have to reconsider this plan.
I picked up a big pot early on against Matt Stout
