It always happens, losing a few calls here and there, but this time, it was a bit more than here and there, and against the same player everytime.
I had about 950, blinds 10/20, and I get QQ. I raise it to 60, someone raises it to about 100, and I move in (he had only 200 in chips). I call, he turns over J8s. Board comes J87... Alright, **** happens.
About 5 hands later, QQ again. Nice, it's payback time! I was around 850 chips, and the guy had around 375. I limp in (I'm UTG), he raises, I move all-in, he calls. He turns over 88. Great! Oh wait, flop comes T78. Alright, **** happens twice against the same opponent.
Now, I'm short stacked, I need to make moves. A9s, middle position, no caller yet, I'm all-in. The same guy calls with A3o. Two pairs on board, we split the pot. He was up to 2000 by this time, after his deuces all-in preflop won against someone else's QQ. A few hands later, I was back up around 500 after stealing a few blinds, 1 minutes before the blinds go up to 50/100. AKo, perfect, I'm all-in. The guy calls, and he turns over KTo. At last! Oh wait, flop 89T. Turn 7, river 6, we split again...
After moving in about 8 more times, I finally got caught with 44 against JJ, and I was out in 127th position. I was not too happy overall, but then I checked the guy who stole all my chip. He went out around 170th! He had over 8 times my stack, and he busted first. I guess he used up all his luck against me. It's not everyday that you win/split in 4 calls in which you were at least a 2:1 underdog.
The tournament was great though. Lots of action, I moved all-in preflop 13 times, and I won only once (QJo vs A9o), but hopefully I'll play better next time, and Mike will let us take a chance at the bounty by surviving longer than 1min15!
PS: I would have done the same in his situation. QQ with a bounty on my head, I'd be all-in. Too bad the guy had KK.
