Final Regular League Events

Made a good showing tonight and snagged two more ITM finishes in our last event before we move on to the Final Table: took a 3rd and a 1st for $285, plus I jumped into 3rd in the bounty race for another $80-$90. Wasn't happy about the 3rd place finish because of a misread, but I'll take it. More later...need sleep.

Happy to advance to 2nd after being pegged at 3rd for months, and will start the FT with just 500 chips off the leader. Had a good feeling going into last night's events. My game had somehow replaced some aggression with hesitation in the previous months, probably from feeling my way around cash games, but I played some SnGs on Bovada and got back into the swing of things.

In the 2nd tourney, I folded 99 when we were down to 3 and facing two all ins, and would have taken both players out. Kind of sick and felt like a laddering move. If I had been thinking of ranges, it should have been an easy call, and would have bumped me to a tie for 2nd in the bounty race.

Headsup though, I took several pots from the SB by shoving any two. Final hand was me shoving J8o from the small blind into 77. Villain flops the set, but I hit runner runner to fill the straight. Got very lucky and earned enough points to accomplish what I hoped, so I'm happy overall.

There was no way to catch my best friend JD in first, after he steamrolled 4 consecutive tourneys for a total of 5 1st place wins out of 24 tourneys. He's been on a wicked run and took down an MTT at Choctaw on New Years Day for $1200+.
