Made final table of the Mookie, but bowed out first
Tonight felt like it would be the night. I was getting some cards and building up the stack when ... I got the dreaded pocket rockets. Irongirl01 raised, I reraised, she went all in, and I called. A classic: A-A vs K-K. As luck would have it, she spiked a K and left me with only a few hundred points. Somehow I was able to fight back (as I wrote in chat -- lightning36: small stack specialist) and got to the final table. I did not want to see the fold equity go too far, and I went all in with A-6 of spades, counting on everyone folding. Alas, the dreaded pocket kings took care of me for a final time and put me out in 9th place. Disappointing to be the first out at the final table, but I'd rather go out like I did and not see my stack go down to nothing slowly.
