Last night while I was sleeping, I had a dream. This dream started with me looking through a local thrift store. As I walked by the section with posters and paintings, something caught my eye. A signed wall-sized poster of NaDa. I knew that finding Starcraft stuff at the thrift store was rare (although I did actually find a shirt with the protoss icon on it irl), so I bought it. After paying for it and starting to walk home, I lose my focus and somehow drop the poster while staring at a Tim Hortons. A biker ran over the poster, and I thought it was destroyed. However, i turned it over and looked at it. Turns out it was in some kind of pictureframe with glass protecting it. The poster was safe, and the glass only had a tire track on it. I continued walking with the poster, past a bunch of houses and stores. I come up to another Tim Hortons, with some people playing baseball on the street outside. As I walk by, one of the pitchers hits the batter in the ear with the ball. (This part is a little wierd) For some reason, my dream cuts away to an episode of Mythbusters, and them testing if a baseball to the ear is leathal. I then cut back to me walking down the street. Just as I reach home with my poster, I wake up.
I have no idea what sparked half the stuff in this dream (I am rooting for NaDa in the TSL, so I understand that, and its Canada so theres plenty of Timmies).
Second half, about a poker sit&go tourney I just entered and played in.
I was playing some real money tournaments on Full Tilt Poker. I got down to 11.68 from the 50$ i got from pokerstrategy.whatever. I decided I was done dicking around in the 1.20 and 2.25 sit&gos, and decided to risk it all in a 11$ sit&go. A normal person would never have done this, but I am a little crazy. The sit&go starts with 9 players. At the start I do pretty well, getting the top stack after 3 people are eliminated with some lucky pocket nines. I then start to bleed away money slowly. Once the table hits 4 people left, things get really tense. There is going to be one more person eliminated before cash is handed out. Two of the players were sitting fine on about 4k chips each, I had 2k and the guy to my right had about 1k. I was lucky enough to catch a break where both 4k players and the guy to my right bought into a hand, and one of the 4kers won bringing him up to 7k. At this point I was happy I managed to stay alive until the paid positions. Two or three careless hands later, I was eliminated and awarded 18$ for placing third. I would have kept playing if it wasn't for two factors.
1. Both the opponents were of high skill
2. I was a severe shortstack (1.5k vs 5k and 7k)
Overall though it was a good tourney, helped me tighten my play a bit. Also taught me to hate pocket nines.
