I convinced Jenn to come play the local game with me tonight, I have work in the morning so planned to just play the first tournament.
$15 bounty buyin and we had 7 players. I finished on the money bubble in 3rd. Jenn outdrew my TJ with J9 earlier to stay alive, then picked up Aces in the BB against my 3's in the SB to all but cripple me.
I had an opportunity to risk most of my chips 4-handed when the button shoved and I had KQ in the BB. But I hadn't seen him make a move like that before and thought he was stronger than he was (he showed me 89 and we ran it and I would've won, taking the chip lead)
So I busted on the bubble and Jenn got heads-up with another guy. She eventually realized at the 2K/4K level to start shoving every hand, the other guy kept folding but eventually he picked up A9 to her 9T and sent her out in 2nd.
She took down $25 for 2nd and he snagged $45 for first and we called it a night. Gotta hit the sack, busy day tomorrow!
Too tight can sometimes be a good thing in small home tourneys. I once won one playing only 5 hands. And that one had 21 players. It especialy works in a call-station crowd -- and that's what it was. They never realized everytime that I bet I had the nutz.
