It's $1-$2 NL, I'm in the big blind with JJ, LAG in mid-position raises to $10, all fold to me and I call. I have about $100 and he has me covered.
The flop is
8 5 3 rainbow
I bet $10, LAG calls. From his previous betting behavior, I put him on AK or similar, but not an overpair.
Turn : T
I bet $20, he calls. I'm not so sure about his AK anymore.
River : 7
I push, he calls and takes down the pot with AA.
A few hands later I look down to see QQ in early position. I limp, it's raised to $10 by the button and I'm the only caller.
The flop is
6 4 2
I check, button bets $10 and I fold. I'm not risking my stack on third best overpair.

I'm enjoying moderate success in the low buy-in online MTT's. I have often wondered what live tournament players do in between tournaments - that is, those that don't play cash games. At least online, there is non-stop action.
My renewed interest in MTT's may result in participation in some online WSOP satellites over the next few weeks. I've lived in Vegas for over 3 years now, and have not yet personally witnessed a WSOP event, let alone played in one. I plan on allocating no more than $200 toward the satellites, so the chances of me finally stepping foot in the Rio are very slim indeed.
