MTT Action 11/1/2005

Well, not what I wanted, at all. 139th out of 175. Two suckouts and I'm out. I thought both were appropriate plays, just bad luck. Here's all 6 hands that I played. Give me your thoughts. Anything anyone would have done different?

DiggaDog folds
threadman calls 390 Uh oh...maybe he does.
IlliniFan shows [Kc Jd]
threadman shows [Qh Ac] Nope. Just the gutshot, and an A. 7 outs

So, how did I do? I thought this was just a case of bad luck. Looking back, I did have the loose call with K9 that ended up costing me quite a bit, and then the KJ. But I see a lot of people playing these hands for cheap and then getting away after the flop. Am I too loose with these plays?

Illini, this is just me talking, so take that for what it's worth. I'm not thrilled to death with your raise with the A6h. While your opposition prolly had worse hands, this is still a drawing hand, that has to hit to be profitable. I would have rather limped with position than raised with position. That's just me though. Otherwise, just a couple of draw outs on ya, and you know it happens to the best of us. BTW, nice call with the K9. I wouldn't have been able to do that.

Thanks for the thoughts, ct. This may be a weakness in my game. I try to not limp from that late of a position. If I am going to play, I'm going to show strength. I'll look at some of my other plays to see if this is a leak.

Saw u did pretty decent in "Isn't it Grand" tonight, but bubbled...:( I couldn't play in it. I seem to have trouble around the bubble. I was wondering if you had any critical hands for discussion. Just a thought.

the final had vs AQ, the guy had a double gutshot draw, any 9 or K makes a str8 along with the Ace out.
