Played 2 hours, 30 minutes,
$3.30 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (733rd out of 2444 Players)
$3 re-buy 20k guaranteed.
had 2.8k after rebuyperiod. Won races and picked good cards to get me up to 20k. Then the Pokergods started turning against me. Lost with JJ against a shortstacked QQ. He had been playing ultra-tight, so I knew it was a coinflip at best, but I had the odds after making a pre-flop raise. I also let a huge bully semi-bluff me out of a couple of big pots, but that's what I get from being passive...
I also was very unforunate with my lay-downs. I laid down TT UTG+1 when UTG opened up with 4x BB with 99. I also got raised and re-raised out of a hand holding pocketpair in the bigblind when I would have made quads and sets on the flop...
Ended up going out holding jacks against AKo. Can't I ever win a race with my tournament-life on the line?

it's tough making those lay downs sometimes... but, in a tourney structure,it's often necessary to pick spots...
that's why at the WSOP Main Event the chip leader after the first day hasn't won in, what is it... 20 years?
usually ends up being some ultra-aggressive player who gambles too much and gives it up because he gambled at the wrong spot against the wrong player
gambling into that player who "knows when to hold'em, and knows when to fold'em"
can't get bullied... but, gotta stya intelligent with your moves

You are on pace.. -$37.59 is not a big deal. I notice you comment about posting losses. Those are the best posts as you can learn from them.
Just from reading your few entries I see you may want to work on your passiveness and concern for losing.
Glad you enjoy posting.. it is nice tool to reflect on when things are bad/good.
