I had a bad last level today, highlighted by a 1 million chip loss in a blind-on-blind pot with top pair vs. better top pair, and augmented by an 800k coin flip defeat. Also today, I lost a million chip pot as a 2.5-1 favorite, and a half million chip pot with 77 vs. 44 vs. 22. Despite all this, I also busted two different players, both times by flopping two small pair, and I was fortunate enough to get AA vs. QQ, so I’m still in this thing. I’m down to 766k, which is the smallest stack relative to the blinds that I’ve had in the entire event. That said, I still have 25 blinds, which at this stage of almost any other tournament would make me an average or even above stack. Besides, I’m better with a smaller stack anyway. Today wasn’t so good, but I’m thrilled to be in a position to have a shot. Tomorrow is a brand new day at the office. Wish me luck.
