Lucky # 12

I played in free poker tournaments the last two nights, and finished 12th both times.

Last night I started strong and was even the chip leader for a while, then I just got sloppy and put myself out. Don't even remember what beat me.

Tonight, I was playing horribly with one exception. Usually, when I try to slow play the table, I end up losing. Early on I flopped a king high straight and bet it like I was chasing it, which got someone to go "all-in" when I checked on the river. Always feels good to put someone out. Unfortunately, that was my one shining moment all night. I put my own self out when I got a straight later on, which blinded me to the possible flush showing on the table.


Bummer. I guess I'll just have to try again.....
