Played the Sunday noon tournament at Delaware Park third week in a row. Two weeks ago, I busted out with QQ against AK. Last week, my pocket KK lost to villian's QQ when a queen hit the river. This week, my luck was little changed.
The tournament drew 155 runners. 18 paid. I met my fate shortly after the second break. Blinds were $400 / $800 with $100 ante. Average chip stack was $16,000 and I was sitting on $21,000. I had been quiet for 15 minutes or so when I look down at KJ off in the hi-jack. One early limper. I raise to $2,200. Button calls and blinds and limper fold. Button has approximately $20,000 behind.
Flop comes 7d, 4c, Kd.
I lead for $4,100. Button shoves for $17,000. I call.
Button turns A Q diamonds and says, "nice call." Always the kiss of death.
Turn blanks and the river is the 2 of diamonds. Out at 61.
