This Sunday was one of the biggest and most epic Sundays of all time as far as online donkament action goes. It was the culmination of the Spring Championship of Online Poker series, which included a $1k event, a $2k event, and even a $10k event with a $5M guaranteed prize pool.
Naturally the $10k was all I focused on the entire day, and mindlessly played my other tournaments in the background while giving them little to no attention.
I made a deep run in the Lock $162 but ended up bricking 14 outs twice for a huge pot against the pocket threes of one of the biggest fish I've ever played against. I'd give the hand history but don't want to whine ... but trust me, he sucks LOL =)
I also managed to make a deep run in the turbo $109+rebuy again, but came up just short of making the final table of it in back-to-back weeks.
So that leaves the $10k. I really put everything I had into this tournament all day long, and got off to the right start early when someone decided to gift me their entire $10,000 investment. I was very grateful, as this set me up to remain in the top 15-40 players in chips (out of a 600+ starting field) throughout the tournament.
I cruised through most of the mid stages of the tournament while slowly chipping up and really playing my best, which can be tough when you're playing nine tables other than the $10k. I managed to stay focused all day, but lost traction and wasn't able to pick up many chips from the time there were 50 players left until there were about 30.
As a result, my stack slipped down to just under 30 big blinds (~110k @ 2/4k), the lowest it had been all tournament. I was dealt A♣ Q♦ in the cutoff, and AJinOK opened to 12k from the hijack. I made a pretty standard shove despite my vast hatred for the hand, and he called with 9♣ 9♠. His pair held, and I busted in 29th place for $30,750.
As usual I wasn't really bitter or mad after this elimination, even though it happened almost 17 hours into my session and 5 minutes before the tournament broke for day 1.
The only thing that'll usually frustrate me is if I feel I've made some mistakes that led to me losing chips/busting. I really feel that I played my A-game throughout this tournament, and had I won a flip I'd have most likely made the final table and been playing for $1.16 million.
