MTT's are fun

It is an immutable fact of tournament life that eventually either you will suck out on someone or they will suck out on you. In sharp contrast to what you will read elsewhere, I present an example of the former. This was an all-in hand and I went on to finish in the money.

Following is another all-in hand and an example of nearly being sucked out on. Preflop I am an 82.3% favorite. The flop gives my opponent 93 outs and from here it is virtually a coin toss (51.5% in my favor). Not surprisingly, my sphincter contracted as the turn and river cards fell (see last visual).
