Fridays are goooooooot

After a day off from work to do yard work and catch up on house chores, I decided to play a 10 PLO8 MTT with everyone's favorite blogger Scott Fischman. No run ins with him but it was a good idea to play. First hour was nothing special ended it pretty much even, then getting low in the second hour I took a shot with the nut low and what figured to be the only flush draw, albeit not a good one. Well the FD got there and sent me off to the races.

I was able to make some big hands and get paid off every time. Yes, Zooks, I did flop quads twice but I didn't make the people go all in first. The other big hand came with about 20 or so left while I was in the top 10 in chips. Played A2310 for a small raise from UTG, flop cam 338. SB bet out, I reraised all in and he called with KQJ3. He never improved and I was up to 3rd in chips. Played tight for a while after that, trying to take down pots cheaply and not let the hands get out of control.

Make it to the final table and then finally to the last four. Shorthanded I really started to get aggressive and amass some more chips from the prohibitive chip leader. Then down to 3 I grabbed the lead briefly, only to see it slip away again. We start heads up with him in the lead. After a few hands i pull slightly ahead. Only to have this happen.
