Coin flips

I donked it up to do well in the WBPT Gemini tournament, where we played two tourneys at once on Poker Stars. I took 2nd and 5th place, which should be good for second place overall.

Congrats to Hoyazo for taking down first prize. Other top players who put on great tourneys were individual winners FatBaldGuy, Spaceman and third place overall finisher Doubleas.

Any time I do well in one of these tourneys I'm amazed at how lucky I get. I pushed K2 into QQ and hit a K. I had AA and KK a few times. I flopped sets. It was good.

Most of all, I won races. I hit my overcards and my pocket pairs held up. That's all there was too it. Other than that, the tourney was just deciding when to go in and when to attempt a steal.

I worry that tourneys will rot my brain. The random rivers are like poisoned candy, tempting me to push in with my draws and suck out. Oh, it tastes good when they hit.
