Another cash in the Riverchasers

After bombing out in this week's Mookie, I managed to finish 5th in last night's Riverchasers Event #2, hosted by the Reverend Al. I started off inauspiciously and was down to T690 (and last position) very early on. I fought back, building my stack up to a respectable level. The pivotal hand for me was the following:

Full Tilt Poker Game #1673618973: Riverchasers Tour Event #2 (11176593), Table 8 - 60/120 - No Limit Hold'em - 22:13:28 ET - 2007/01/25 (partial)

After the flop, I was a 91% dog and was very lucky not to have been eliminated there and then. Of course I could not put him on a 7 and would play the hand the same way tomorrow. That's poker.

Yeah, you'd better believe that hurt! I ended up moving tables shortly after and being eliminated within about 10 hands. Hopefully next time I can join you at the final table!
Cheers. -patryn21

From what I recollect, as chip leader you were starting to attack the blinds but were still playing solidly. Had you been a short(er) stack, I would have reraised all-in preflop, probably pushing out a 97s. But given the circumstances, I can't see how the hand could have been played differently.

I agree. I was looking to have a little fun with that hand, but ended up paying for it. I too would not have played it differently, even if I were in your shoes. It is these exciting events that keep us all addicted to this game. Hope to see you at the next one!
