Why does Brighton hate me so much?!?

Firstly , apologies for not updating the DTD story - needless to say I have forgotten what I wanted to say so I will skip over it.

So onto Brighton.

Went for their £150 + £150 deepstack event - basically a £300 f/o with 15k chips. All started well until I got called when making a move for a big pot. I felt he made a bad call with his holding (A rag) on an A high flop but maybe he had a read on me? I dont know. Anyway, that left me with little play left and I struggled for the whole day - I did get lucky late in day 1 with 88 vs QQ where I rivered a flush.

So back to day 2 with 13 left and I had 38k (again in danger zone) with the blinds 1600 3200 and running ante of 300.

With 9 getting paid I felt it would be a long drawn out affair to get to the final table, but it wasnt. It took only 40 minutes. I was the last to go (yes Bubble again). I am in the BB with 77 and 28k behind. Folded to the SB who makes it 15k. Now I know he cannot fold to my shove but I felt this was my time to take a shot at a double up. Feeling I was racing against 2 overs I was more than happy to see him flip A 7. So with 3 outs we head to the flop, which duly bought an Ace and I was out.

The drive home was a nitemare and took me over 4 hours! (Most of which was spent on the M25 doing no more than 5 miles an hour) and all this on my birthday. Nice birthday!

Anyway, it got me thinking about the other comps I have played at Brighton (ranginf from £300 to £500 comps). It seems Brighton does not like me, having bubbled today, I remembered the last comp I played where I also bubbled. And the comp before that I had AA vs KK (being in the top 3 in chips with circa 20 left) and got all in against chip leader with KK. Pot was massive and needless to say he hit not one, but TWO kings on the flop!

Maybe I should steer clear of Brighton? lol

Next stop is the £250 + £250 at Luton next week - again a 15k deepstack event.
