2 showdowns, 3 rivers, 4 turns, and only 7% of flops, and here I am at the final table. Weak/tight is the new tight aggressive. I made a questionable fold on this hand, and called a jam from the other shorty on the next hand. I had QTo vs A2o, so I was not in horrible shape. Also with the dead money in the pot I could triple up to about 5k in chips, and some room to maneuver. I would not hold though and go home 9th.
Towards the end of the tourney, I jumped on a blogger 100NL cash game. After complete card deadness for about 1/2 hour, my nut peddling ways would pay off. I would flop the Nutz with 99 on a 9 high board, and double though against a flopped 2-pair that was drawing dead to all but runner/runner quads. I would flop the nut flush and build a nice $65 pot before a forth heart on the river would spoil my action. I ended up quitting up about $120 for the table. That plus a 10th place in a 90 player $10 S&G, would make for a decent night overall.
