Poker :: Aussie Aussie Aussie, Almost Almost Almost...
  submitted on December 21, 2007, 1:32 AM




I think the most fucked up part of the whole night was my chat with Miami Don before the tournament:

(19:37:55) Mike (Yahoo): Hey, are you watching the game? Who's announcing with Gumbel?
(19:37:58) Mike (Yahoo): Is that Deion?
(19:38:03) Miami Don: ya
(19:38:14) Mike (Yahoo): Where's Chris?
(19:38:31) Miami Don: no idea, wish gumble would go with him
(19:38:46) Mike (Yahoo): yeah
(19:40:53) Miami Don: you gonna go deep tonight?
(19:41:29) Mike (Yahoo): Man, I hope so...although really, what is something like finishing fourth going to feel like? :)


Damn.

Honestly, I'm not quite as devastated as I thought I might be. I'm definitely disappointed to get that close and fall short, it reminds me a bit of my my third place finish in the $24k back in July. I am happy that I played well enough to make it to the final table, and to finish in 4th place, especially considering some of the competition.

I do want to break down this tournament, because I want to reflect on how I played. There are definitely some things I need to work on (Like not having lucko run over me at the FT because I turned into a calling station preflop). But that will probably be this weekend some time, because it's late. Maybe if I was going to Australia I would be a bit more energized and wouldn't care as much about staying up for an hour or two longer. Ah well. Good luck to whoever ends up taking it down.
