After playing like a donkey for the better part of 2 hours, I doubled up and was back in the tournament. I got lucky on a squeeze play and ended up just below avg. To this point, I had not been dealt a pair of tens or better.
Got QQ on the button and managed to reraise preflop to win a nice pot. Very next hand, guy raises from mid position, I look down at two red Kings, I reraise pretty hefty, he calls. There’s now enough in the pot to make me chip leader, so on a J84 flop, I ship my remaining 12K. He calls pretty quickly with…….JTo. Rivers a Jack.
Somebody please pull the sharp stick out of my eye.
