on the brink

i'm on the brink of a huge MTT cash. playing great poker and improving my game a ton. have been playing 5-12 MTT's a day lately.

today i got down to 25 in the 100r on Stars and lost to a 6 outer on the river and with 5 left at the Stars nighly $100k final table i lost to a sick runner runner straight when i had flopped two pair. if i win either of those hands i'm the chipleader of the tourney. whatever though, standard fare. jon little made multiple huge money final tables and went out in similar fashion before his cards finally held up and now he's top 10 for cardplayer player of the year. thats coming for me, i can feel it. mark my words, i'm going to have an insane MTT win/cash very soon.

two awesome hands today:

109r: deep in the tourney.

i open KK from ep, get re-raised and then the SB pushes. we are all big stacks with a bunch of shorties at the table. i'm the table chip leader and have been reasonably tight. i mucked it. he said in chat he had AA but who knows if thats accurate. ansky from 2+2 said it was a terrible fold but everybody else i talked to liked it. i like it.

final table of the 100k, one of those hands that just make you feel like a god of poker:
