Shootout!

Today was a fun and exciting day. I was in a poker shootout tournament. For those of you who don’t know, a shootout tournament is when you have to eliminate every other player on your own table to progress to the next round. It is much quicker to get to the final table because if you start with 2,000 players as we did today, then tomorrow it instantly changes to 200 players.

I did well and was chip leader for much of the day on my table. It ended up with me being heads-up with one other guy.

He had just taken out two other players and was now chip leader on our table. I had 18,000 whilst he had 27,000. I looked down and saw Queen, Four of spades. As I was big blind and I managed to see a cheap flop that was Queen of Hearts, 4 of diamonds and 2 of spades.

I checked and the other guy raised as he had been doing for some time on previous hands. I re-raised him all in and he showed Ace, Queen of diamonds. The turn card was a diamond and so was the river, putting an end to my campaign for today.

I know I am better than most of the players here and just need a little run of luck of my own. No one ever won a poker tournament without some good fortune and I believe my time will be in this WSOP.

I hope you are enjoying reading this.
