Six Handed - 230 players remaining in FTOPS #7 (144 pay)
Blinds 200/400 w/ 50 ante going up to 250/500 w/50 ante next hand
Out 230 of 1,282 :(

Anyone playing this hand differently in a 6 MAX tourney here - SB vs. BB? Cooler obviously, right? No way to lay down QQ in this spot when this short (or ever) in a 6 MAX tourney? Of course not, but it makes me feel better posting it.

I think that I am going to fold QQ any chance I get now. That is my bustout hand in FTOPS Event #1 and #7 now. :(

    And go broke.


  5. You fold you leave yourself with an M of like 5....U have to go broke there especially at a max 6.


  6. and this time the SB wakes up with it. so effin ghey.


  7. After you have already committed half your stack you have to go broke there.


  8. Just catching up on some blogs...wanted to echo the other comments. No way I fold there.
