Default I run like a lame duck on Full Tilt.

I played, and made it deep in one of the Guarantee’s on Full Tilt last night. It started with 1055 and paid out 99; here are the big hands I played after I made the money; sorry theres no HH, but im posting from a different computer than the one that has my Ptracker:



Hand 1: Blinds 250/500

My stack 25K

Opponents stack 30K

I get all-in on the turn w/ A,Q on the A,K,J,2 board and get called by A,6; 2 on the river, no chipping up for now.



Hand 2: Blinds 600/1200

My stack 26K

Opponents stack 12K

My opponents moves all-in on the turn w/ A,J on the 10,2,2,7 board, I call with 5,5; A on the river!



Hand 3: Blinds 1K/2K

My stack 36K

Opponents stack 80K

I get all-in on the flop w/ Q,10 on the J,10,J board against A,K; K-Ball on the turn, nice tournament.



These are seriously the only big hands I played after I monied; I maintained my stack and chipped up by playing effectively in late position and blind on blind, but these are the only hands that I got all-in or went to showdown.

Here are some interesting hands from tourneys I didn't money on Full Tilt last night:
Mid-stage I have K,J, and I get all-in after there is a bet, a raise and a call on the 9,10,Q board. My opponent has J,8 and is rewarded with a K on the river; man it is hard to chip up on full tilt.
A few rounds later the sb - who covers me - 3x's my bb; I three-bet him with K,K. After breif deliberation, he shoves and I call. He shows 9,9 and the flop comes out 9,10,3....good tournament me.

I played in one other tourney on FTP last night, and this bust hand is pretty standard. About 4 tables before the bubble, mid-position 3x's and it is folded around to me. I have A,A on the button and three-bet him; he shoves and I obviously call. He shows K,K and the board 4 flushed me out of the tournament on the turn; good tournament me.

This is seriously how I have ran on FTP for all of Nov. So, last night, I had my brother creat a screen name on Full Tilt which I think I am going to start playing on. Check me out with my new FTP alias: "iRun Bad on FTP"

Don't post in BBV if you are serious. (This should be a sticky)

Obviously, not actually changing my screen name. I get ridiculous rakeback on FTP, just figuritivly expressing my frustration with running like a one-leg turtle during all of November on their site.

You managed to find this forum which means you may have read some of the stories on offer.

At what point while writing this (thank you, it was quite a delectable read) did you think this would be...

a) anything other than standard
b) interesting

My post is not about an unfortunate outcome for individual hands; I am disconcerted about my overall tournament results on FTP for the month. All month, my pivotal hands, late in tournaments, have repeatedly had negative outcomes in greatly +EV spots, hence I labeled my post "I run like a lame duck on Full Tilt."
