A great way to start the year with my record score. Only my 2nd session of 2013 after a nice long break over Christmas. I was so burnt out in December and determined not to come back before I was looking forward to playing poker again.
I ran hot and accumulated a big stack in the middle stages, then rode it to the FT. Once at the Final Table I was thinking how unusually weak the remaining opponants were. 3x, 4x and 7x raises were the standard! Once I'd avoided being sucked out by the maniac the stack sizes were perfect and I just ran over the table short handed. A rare luxury these days. Then when it gets to heads up we have a standard Stars allin to inflict maximum stress to the players.
One of my main goals for 2013 is a 5 figure score. Not quite there yet, so I just need to repeat this in a TCOOP now!
