I made my 6th final table of this mission tonight. The final tables so far are: 2nd in the $20 Omaha H/L for $935.48, 6th in a $10 Omaha for $150, 6th in a $3 Hold'em for $120, 1st in a $2 Hold'em heads up for $256, 2nd in a $4 Hold'em for $144 and today a 2nd place in a $5 hold'em for $685. Hopefully if i keep getting this far that tournament win that has been avoiding me up to now will eventually come around.
I ran 99 into TT heads up. He limp re-raised me. This is actually the second time that this happened when i have been heads up in a tourney holding 99. Both times 99 was no good. To make things extra sick we both made sets on the flop so no matter what the money was going in there. I then pushed, maybe a bit too hard, with a (weak) flush draw and overs cards on the last hand. His top pair held up.
Playing the cash tables with Pahud and Poker-tracker has been really productive. Recently, it helped me make a really tough call against an aggressive player. I had QQ on the button on a K high flop. To make things worse the flush hit the river which was also a possibility. You can't have everything though, and in the end I made the call as his betting seemed strange and his stats backed up the fact that it would be worth giving him action.
