The worst thing that can happen...
...on a Sunday when you are
- Above average stack, ITM, and have good reads on everyone at the table in the $20 $25k GTD
- Just above average stack after 2 hours of the Sunday warm up with good reads on most people at the table and two weak blinds on your left
- Above average stack in the $5 $15k GTD
The worst that happen in that situation is your munter fuxxing ISP going down for the first time in like 2 years and then being forced to speak to a moron on the phone about it. When I explained that four other people on this service also didn't have internet that might have been a clue the problem was not actually
"A problem with your router sir."
My brother is online with a different company so when it became clear I wasn't getting back on anytime soon I drove to his house. Just in time to go allin with my two BB stack in the warm up with KQo and shove it into Aces 60 people short of the money. I got blinded out in the $20 game but still finished 91st for a $52 prize.
Perhaps asking for a HH to see what cards I missed was in hindsight not the best way to reduce the tilt I was feeling.
I did get second in a $10 27plyr SNG after to recover some of the losses.
Talk about crappy luck.
Today I'm working out the best way of setting up a backup service that won't cost me unless I use it in case this ever happens again.
