Just played in a Bovada Triple-up Sit-and-go. Nine players each start with 1500 chips. The final three players triple their money.
After about 15 minutes I had gotten AA twice and KK once. I won big with all of them, and had taken out three of the nine players at the table. With 6 players left, I had over 6000 chips, almost as much as the rest of the table combined.
All I had to do is sit back and wait for the others to destroy eachother. There's no way I could lose this one right?
Fast forward another 30 minutes. We're down to four players...one more to the money. But oddly enough, I am now the short stack. Everyone else is passing the chips around the table and I am getting blinded off little by little by little. I played a couple A-K or A-Q hands, but lost them too.
As short stack of 2000 and the blinds now up to 300/600, I get hit with the big blind and I pretty much have to make a desperation move. I call an all-in from the small blind, with an unimpressive 9-J. He beats me with pocket deuces and I'm done in fouth place.
Can't believe I lost this one.
