$12 bounty tourney at UB

The great thing about the tournaments at UB, aside from the structure, is the fact that you don't have to be massive fields each tourney to have a chance to win. The most frustrating thing about tourneys at UB is that, because the fields are so small, there aren't a lot of spots in the money. I played two five dollar tourneys, one a bounty, and finished a table away from the money in one and donked my way out of the other in mid-stream.
I played the $12+1 bounty tourney and battled around for quite a while. The best hand I was dealt was the one time I got QQ. Aggressive pushes gained me enough chips as the bubbled neared kept me alive until I got lucky on the hand below, which kept me alive until I was knocked out in 16th, 4 in the money:

I ve been working harder at concentrating on my games and avoiding surfing Pocketfives while I'm playing. So after I busted it was really nice to find a couple of personal messages (pms) letting me know that the Braves were having a great game against the Mets in game one of a key series. As I write this, Chipper has a couple of hits. Jeff "Frenchy" Francoeur has 4 hits including 2 doubles and a homer. Go Braves!!!!!!!
