Fortuitous

The lucky streak lasted long enough for me to get 18th place (333 people entered, a sellout) in today's poker tournament which was good for a pay day of $1401, split it in half and gave my Dad his half (+$1) for funding the days fun and I walked away $700 to the good for my 11 hours of playing. Not a bad result at all. I know no one actually reads my blog for the poker content so I'll spare the boring details and breaking down of individual hands but will just mention that I titled this post "fortuitous" because I got very lucky on 2 hands early in the tournament and without that luck I would have been out of the tournament before the supper break. After that though I settled down quite a bit and played well, I don't believe I made any real mistakes for the rest of the tournament. Even the hand I was eliminated on was a situation where the hand was good enough and I had few enough chips that I had to go all in, I just didn't get one more kiss from lady luck to keep me alive. I'm quite happy with the result, it was probably the most technically perfect tournament I've played in several months and I did outlast at least a dozen of the best poker players in the country.
