    Poker Maximus 7.5k 2.20 main event (Donkus-Maximus)

    So, I played this game, yet with a THREE HOUR (lmao) late entry, it was packed with well over 1k players.

    Anyrate, I make one mistake after doing pretty well and chipping up, then run into a "it's only $2.20? I can afford that" non-player, who thinks pot odds are what the soup of the day might be at their favorite restaurant. "I hope it's chicken noodle. I like Chicken noodle. What are the odds it's chicken noodle today, honey?"

    So, I'm out, but wait! There is a rebuy! I check my account balance and...crap, $1.43. So, I start bombing the 11 cent super turbo games to get the pennies I need to rebuy.

    Ever play the super turbos? 300 starting stack, 3 minute blinds. It's like Sherman's march to the sea, if he and the Northern troops had rockets strapped to their asses and you are a Southerner in their path. Or, if you're not a history buff, it's like eating a cactus whole and then getting explosive diarrhea. Yes. One or two games is like that. I had to play about 15 of those to make it...and finally I have 2.23! I feel like I just birthed a small mountain range, but hey, I'm back in the game!

    So, I re enter, 5 minutes left to late reg. Levels are actually not to shabby, 1200 BB (lol). The big stack at the table only has 157k. I am the short stack. Next short stack is only 52k. Who don't like that situation? Sure enough, in no time I have amassed a 30k stack. I am doing great. The bubble is approaching fast now...

    Then, I get moved to a new table. Do you think the calling stations and loons are gone by now? No, of course not. I run into Sheriff Mc-you're-not-bluffin-me, who kills my flopped set by donking to the stupid end of a 4 card straight. Just never enough overcards to a small PP, is there? No, no there is not. Not even every card on the damn flop. And who won't risk their whole stack with the additional safety net and security an oddball runner runner hand provides? Not this guy, clearly.

    No, not this Sheriff. For all the good it did him. Next hand after donk-smacking me into the felt, I got the satisfaction of watching him call an all in post flop when his J-3 suited paired the Jack (it was only 1/2 his stack to call preflop, yet, after all, it was suited!) and he ran into the overpair (KK) of a player smart enough to know a fish when he sees one. Well, there was one of his suit on the flop, so that runner-runner backup plan came into his decision, yet sadly, let him down. I felt so bad (not).

    So, I'm pretty bummed by now, right? Then I look a the pays. The game started out with a $30.00 + min pay, only now it was down to like 7 measly dollars! And the top pay got whittled down something horrible. Hell, I could have found a 7.5k GTD game for $2.20, with fewer players and less late entry! Better payout amounts as well! WTF!?!

    Oh, well. I think I'll go eat some chicken noodle soup now.

    Hopefully the 33.00 main event will be better. 7500 starting chips, 15 minute levels, and, HOPEFULLY, fewer loose cannons. At least near the bubble, late in the game!
