But I got a bit careless with my calls at the end. If it had been winner-take-all, I probably would have played a little bit tighter at the end. However, I knew that second place gets his $20 back, so I made a couple of calls on hands I should have walked away from. He won one big hand that made my lead less insurmountable. Then he went all in and I called him. I had two pair, sixes and nines. He had three threes. I had little choice but to go all in on my next hand and couldn't suck out a pair.
Oh, so close to winning $120! At least I didn't lose anything. And I played well for the most part. That's what counts.
