I've had nothing meaningful to say for a while.
I've written about two posts a day, but stuff that I didn't want to or couldn't post.
I finished third tonight in a free roll that paid out one thousand for first place. I won a measly one hundred dollars for placing third. Yes, I'm happy I made the money, but the hand was a "no-brainer" and I ran into the only hand that could beat me.
Picture this, you play, rehearse, work, whatever...perfectly for three hours, knowing that with only one hour left you will be rewarded handsomely. Then it all comes crashing down around you in less than 30 seconds.
I left crushed and defeated with acquaintances and friends reassuring me that there was nothing I could have done to get away from that hand with three players.
I'm home and I still can't get that hand out of my head. It's going to haunt me for a while. I want to know how the pros lay down KK face up. If I knew how to do that, I'd be a grand richer.
