Added $50 to my UB account since Jiddy was playing there tonight. He is now set for online gaming-dear God. Man, sometimes the donks kill me, sucking out on me, ie JJ raise pre-flop, called by KQ, flop all rags, move on the pot, KQ calls off all their chips on overs and hits of course. Other times the donks pass their chips over like the good donks they are, ie same guy calls my pre-flop raise, I flop top set w/QQ, he puts me all-in w/AK, thanks pal. Sweet revenge. Very next hand I have 88, flop 876, I give the pot a little nudge to help it grow, and to see where I am, turn 6, full 3-way action from 67 and 9T (I just flat-call everything as my opponents put me all-in) tripling me up to 15K in chips! And I was thinking how I might have to get rid of my hand if the board didn't pair for me because of the goddamn straight possibility. 2nd at the break...

AK, flop AT8, big bets pre-flop and all through the hand, river 8, opponent who called all the way shows 38s. Lose around a third of my stack. The donks are at it again. Trip Queens w/the Varkonyi gets me back some. QQ gets a bad flop so I release it. Suck out a flush on a set and the river doesn't pair and I'm up to 17K. Flop trips w/a trash hand and can't get any action. Fold AKs pre-flop, would've flopped the nut flush vs AK and KK after the 2nd break. No action on my QQ re-raise before going to the flop. 88 gets in a little trouble. KQs v AJ puts me out in 39th for a whopping $3 profit. Hooray for me. Looking back I played much too tight towards the end of the tournament and that was probably what cost me a better finish. A solid lead blown.
