When asked what the worst possible tournament result is my answer is "Crash and Burn". That is when you get to the money round in every event and lose all of those matches.
That is a much worse feeling than losing in the first round of every event, especially in "Vegas" because at least there if I lose right away I can see a show, go play poker, or at least catch up on some much needed rest.
This past week in Las Vegas, I managed to assemble a stellar 6-1 match record during the first three days of competition, only to go 0-3 on "Black Saturday" losing in two money rounds and one pre-money round.
As a matter of fact, I was leading 13-11 to 15 in the two money round matches, and through misfortune or misadventure I managed to let both of those victories slip between my fingers. Today we will go over a dozen positions from some of those matches and we'll whether I lost due to bad luck, bad decisions or a combination of the two.
