Gambling for the tournament win

With Mr. White at seven points now, I felt like playing some tournaments last week to close the gap. PKR guaranteed me a nice bonus so I now play at this online poker room. They offer good tournaments at almost every moment I log in, so I’m very satisfied about it at the moment. They should only let me slip into a final table one time.

I played a tournament with like 180 players and decided early on to go for the win here and to gamble from time to time. Here’s the first hand I want to show you (not coverted into a hand replayer because the HH format of PKR sucks monkeyb***s):

Ante = 100
Seat 1: BURDOCK4 – 17,725
Seat 2: rrfc1994 – 75,006
Seat 3: Mr. Blue – 14,900

This huffmiester guy is making fun of my game first, but must realize in the end that i made a very good play here with my JT suited, I even catch a royal flush draw on the turn. Some hands later we collide again:

Like I needed some luck with my shiny aces against this KJ^^. So I take down this pot also, but from then on it’s the same old story again. I make a deep run in the tournament but I’m not able to make that final jump towards the final table.
