    You'll get a kick out of this. On Friday at my regular poker group, we started a second tournament around 11:00 pm and it was crazy aggressive play by everyone but me. My cards were so bad, I couldn't even play them. So, I did not voluntarily put money into a pot for about 35-40 hands to start the game. There were 10 players when we started and before I knew it, I was in 3rd place (and in the money) before I had played a single hand. By this time, I'm way short stacked compared to the other two players. So, the first hand I play, I look down to see AK suited. I shove all in, get called immediately by the host who turns over AA and I'm done. I played a single hand and cashed in 3rd place.

    I finished 2nd in the first tournament and lost to the host, who had AA to win that one too. So, both times I went all in, the host had AA. If I didn't know the guy really well, I'd wonder...

    It's no different than online. Nice work cashing without winning a hand.

    Way to grind it out for a losing, yet finish in the money! Now that's some TIGHT poker. Might as well have read a book like what Jensen did that one year at the WSOP.
