Third Place (but not really)

PITTSBURGH -- Larry played in a 7:15 p.m. tournament last night. $65 buy-in, 40 people. Even though he had lousy cards (not a single pair for almost two hours), he was patient and made it to the final table. Actually, he made it to the final 3. By then, it was almost 1 a.m. He pushed all in with (I think) Ace/8 off suit, because he was ready to either double up or go home. One person called. With a pair of 8s. So third place. But he wouldn't have done that if it wasn't just practice and it wasn't so late. He would have stuck it out. But I need my beauty sleep.

  1. Actually, he "called" an all-in pre-flop bet at 1am from the chip leader who ended up knocking him with a pair of 8's.
