First Final Table

Well, I made my first Final Table in a poker tournament tonight. The irony is that it was in a Pot Limit Omaha tournament. I’ve never played PLO before, so I wasn’t expecting to do too well. I have played some Omaha and O/8, but I’ve never played any Pot Limit stakes.

I turned $5.50 into $40, so that’s nice… but I’m frustrated because I probably could’ve busted 7th or 6th instead of 9th and made another $40 to $60. I just overplayed a second-best hand and busted earlier than I should’ve. I was very short-stacked, but that’s not an excuse.

Anyway, I’m glad I made the final table, but I wish I’d not busted on a stupid play.
