Two Chances Left for TOC

Either I donked off chips to LJ or lost as little as I could when I flopped pair of Aces against her 99 but failed to raise her on flop. Either I win pot with jam or go out when she decides there are only 2 overs on flop no one would call her UTG raise holding an Ace or Jack. I nursed short stack for a long time and JD Schellnutt was chipleader to my immediate right and took great liberties in stealing my blinds so 3rd orbit he raised I had a K and jammed against his Ace and sucked out

Along the way I got this comment from donkette:
Donkette: you know he's calling
Donkette: he calls everything
Donkette: with nothing

I had pocket Aces so I hope she was complaining about earlier hand.

To my great joy I eliminated donkette with 88 > AA.

My string of winning races and sucking out sets with underpairs came to an abrupt end 3 handed when my KQ flopped ahead of Jordan's 33 but river 3 gave him the resuck. A few hands later 99 goes down to Emptyman's J7s and I am out.

Congratulations to Emptyman for taking down the Mookie and for a display of cardrackery that even Astin, LJ or I would be ashamed of.

Also cashed in the Dookie and eliminated Mookie for banner bounty making for a good evening overall.

I went out 13th in Omaha DS when my nut straight after turn was jammed by 3rd straight but river flush cost me the pot. Was looking at my stats in the 0045 Omaha DS today and realized today was my 16th entry with 6 cashes and 1 pro bounty collected. Cashes have been 3 1sts, 1 2nd and 2 4ths and impact on my 120 day tourney ROI is a return to positive (5%).

I am ashamed. Sorry for the J7 beat, it was obviously out of my hands.

Writing is for English/Lit majors anyways. Just take down the Big Game on Sunday.
