It had to end :(

6th attempt at the Circus £10 rebuy tonight.

The rebuy period went perfectly.. almost too perfectly. 2nd hand I got AA and dealer dealt themselves AK so doubled up straight away. With 4 or 5 QQs, a KK and an AKvAQ I reached 10.2k chips at the break with 0 rebuys and 1 addon.

Post-break I grew my stack to 12.2k and was chip leader at my table then had a run of pocket nothing for ages, and my one attempt to steal some blinds was met with a re-raise. I made one big mistake folding KQ with a K on the flop to a decent raise before me. I knew the guy wasn't the best of players at all but being too nervous about losing 2/3 of my chips if we ended up all-in I folded. He exited shortly after with a daft attempt at the pot with nothing and he said that he'd had nothing on the K flop hand too :(

By this time I was getting pretty short and with a number of large stacks joining the table as we got down to the last 20 I had to make a stand. With about 5BB left I was dealt 66, best hand in ages, and went all-in. Called by AA my tourney and streak were over going out 17th :(

So, my run is over but at least it was cheap without needing a rebuy. I should have tried to dominate the table with the 12k stack (average stack at the time was 5k) but was too worried about ending my final table run. At least that won't be a problem next time!
