Back on Track

Went deep in 2 tournys so far today, busting 23/636 in the 11.5k gteed and 7/537 in the 2.5k $3 rebuy. It feels good to play well after the last 10 days. I was not playing well due mostly to not being in the right frame of mind. I still have a few more tournys to play tonight but for now i will post a hand from the 11.5k

Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, 0.00 BB (9 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from

Button (4035.00)
SB (2835.00)
BB (2970.00)
UTG (2955.00)
UTG+1 (3255.00)
MP1 (2835.00)
MP2 (2820.00)
MP3 (3240.00)
Hero (CO) (2055.00)

Preflop: Hero is CO with 9, 10

1 fold, UTG+1 calls 30.00, 3 folds, Hero raises to 135.00, 2 folds, BB calls 105.00, UTG+1 calls 105.00

Flop: (420.00) 2, K, 9 (3 players)
BB checks, UTG+1 checks, Hero checks

Turn: (420.00) 4 (3 players)
BB bets 120.00, 1 fold, Hero raises to 450.00, BB calls 330.00

River: (1320.00) 3 (2 players)
BB bets 150.00, Hero raises to 1470.00 (All-In), 1 fold
Total pot: 1620.00 | Rake: 0.00

(+885 NET)

So a nice bluff. But was it really necessary this early in the tournament? On many forums you will see posts saying not to get involved in these hands early in the tourny aka "tight is right" early. This is generally a good idea, but you still have to take advantage of situations when they arise... villain in this hand could only call me on the river if he had the Ace of diamond, so i pushed.
