I had a decent Sunday. Bubbled the final table of the $200 Horse in 10th place and then stone bubbled the Stars $500 NL 144 paid I got 145 place. I shoved 50k from the cutoff at 1k/2k from a hijack raiser who made it 5k. It was my first hand at the table. I shoved QKo and he called with 88 and I lost the flip and bubbled that tournament.
I ended up getting deep and making the final table of the Stars 2nd 100r. I finished in 4th place for about 15k. Here's how I lost:

Supposedly the other guy folded the other 7 in the deck so I guess I could say I got 1 outted here (2% chance to lose for those who don't play poker -- the worst odds an opponent can have with one card to come if they are not drawing dead. lol) First place was 36k so I feel like I would of had a great shot to win it with 1.2m in chips 3 handed. One of the opponents was pretty weak and the other was getting too aggressive. Oh well. I played good that's all that matters.
It feels good to get back from Vegas and the first day I play get some decent results. I really feel like I turned a new leaf and hopefully this starts the momentum I need to start making some big, consistent scores.
I still have one of my buddies in the main event who has a nice stack with about 170 players remaining. Hopefully he can continue to go deep and make the November 9.
Not sure what else to say, still kinda in shock about the 1 outter lol. I handled it well though. I've been handling the swings and stress of poker better lately so I need to keep that up.
I guess that's all I'll write for now. Goodnight.
