Won my way into tonights satellite...

I played in a couple single table texas holdem events at the poker club tonight, trying to win my $150 seat into tonight's tournament. Up for grabs tonight is a seat at an upcoming Mirage $1500 buy in event, plus expenses, so its a very nice package.

I was playing solid, and did not make any mistakes, but found myself pretty short stacked with 4 remaining ( 11 person table ). I went all in with J-10S when I was in jeapordy of being blinded out, and hit a lucky J on the flop that held up.

Having enough chips now to stand a while and look for some good hands ( $2200 chips with $200 BB ) I got dealte a K2 off... I quickly folded. The big stack made a $800 bet. The other short stack moved all in.... to my suprise, the SECOND big stack ALSO moved all in, AND, the Big Stack quickly called!!!

I walked away from the table to grab something to drink and have a smoke, and as I was coming back, all I hear is 'It's over'!!


To my suprise, the Big Stack's hand held, knocking the other two players out of the game, and giving me a seat! ( Two seats and a free roll were awarded )!

Talk about backing into a seat!
