  2. I thought KQoff could be a fold, can't we find a better spot to put our chips in? How far ahead are we really, she is probably shoving any ace there? We aren't desperate there yet. I would be curious to hear opinions on that hand.

    Otherwise, great blog, enjoyed it a lot!

    Good job, always feels good to cash. Superman call with the AA with a board of diamonds.

  6. Hi Matt!  I'm honored that you referred to me as the "woman who is a pro" in the video (except that I'm far from a pro).  I made a fatal mistake there shoving with QTo – in that moment I thought you were the only person behind me who would call off correctly and my shove would have a good chance of getting through given how tight the table had been.  It was nice playing poker with you.  Hope to see you again at the borgata.

  9. Nice cash…this why it's just so hard in tournaments you basically just start flipping at some point and to final table you probably have to hold with the best a dozen times, win a dozen flips and suck out with a worst hand another half dozen times…call it variance but it's really a lot closer to luck…you could play perfect according to the book/chart and still not get to final table playing 20,30 or 40 tournaments, although cashing enough times could get you even a hey it just takes on big win to make your year successful

  10. Sick, the top 8 chopped basically for $20-28k each …. tough luck not getting there

  11. Great run Matt! Tournament grind can definitely be exhausting. 16 hours straight is so tough to stay focused the whole time and play correctly throughout. Cool to see Q4 get through against 72. That doesn't happen often.

  12. Hey Matt, are you ahead overall for all the tournaments you've entered? I always wonder if you guys use money from you Cash Game Bank Roll to pay your entry or if you start a separate tournaments Bank Roll?
    G'day for Australia btw

  24. Was writing to ask what first paid towards end of video and then you answered it. Lol good run tho. Nothing you can do with 8bb just pick spots and go with it. The feeling sucks, but that's tournament poker.
