Lemme try this shiznizzle

Welcome to the Poker Blog of an unqualified, presupposing college student. Namely, me.

So here it is...900+ entrant in a $20+2 Pokerstars tourney. Down to the last three table (second time in a row going deep into one of these tourneys). and this hand comes up. As it stands I might have played the hand a little poorly, but in any event the result would've been the same.

It just goes to show you that there are times when all the skill in the world isn't gonna help you. I was gonna go broke unless I fold preflop there, and that would be one of the most ridiculous folds ever. Ah well. Onwards and inwards.
