Better Luck Next Time

Game started at 6 p.m., 114 players, 22 got $10K seats, 23rd got $8K in cash. Went on third break at 12:30 a.m., 28 players left. I'm sitting 2 away from button, blinds are 3000/6000 with 500 ante, I have 21K in chips.

Action folds to me, I look down at AQ clubs, figure 3x$6K = $18K, so I shoved. Action folds to small blind, who has $32K, and is known to me to be a donkey. He asks for a count, then calls with 77.

Flop comes Q64, I cheer, but one of the other players says to put the celebration on hold, all cards were diamonds, and so was one of his 7s. Turn is 2s. He rivers the 2 outer, and I finish 28th, basically at or near the bubble yet again.

Maybe one day soon I'll get paid.
