Moral Victory

Came in 8th in the Garthmeister Invitational WWdN tonight. I feel this almost as good as winning it given the insane card deadness I experienced. I am happy in particular with my patience, but boy was that adventures in fold'em.

I managed to survive essentially by betting occasionally with nothing and getting fair number of folds from those paying attention enough to realize I was playing almost nothing.

In 200 hands:

I had 11 pairs, which is just below the expected, but I had exactly 1 pair over 77, and 6 pairs that were 33s or 22s.

I had only 10 suited direct connectors, and only twice was the hand strong enough to play for a raise (AKs) or in a proper situation for calling (T9, managed to win with 2 pair on that one).

Of the 10 aces 10 or bigger (including the bullet once), 6 were AJ or AT.

Most frequent hands: KTo and 74o each 5 times, K6o, JTo, 33, K2o, AJo, Q4o, QTs each 4 times.

Oh, the AA? UTG for a 3x bet, folded around (I don't blame 'em).

Here's the full ugliness:

Card dead indeed. You should very good instinct to lay low and come out with the guns loaded when you did play a pot. Good job.
