One time Win PLS

I got completely pwned HU. 2-1 CL and lost a 2k hu sng. oh rubba,

first time playing 40k on UB. 14 played left im 5th in chippies.
777 <> 999
I have 50k
Button 75k
CL of tourney has 1100000
Button raises 2.5x I call from BB with 77.
flop come 9d 7d 6c (DING DING DING)
ship me the big win...........come on now :)
I check.... ( rub my hands together furiously and cackle)
I am gonna make a UB Final table after bubble the last 4 OMG.
First place is 10k. SHIP me the monies...........weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
BB bets 2/3 pot.
I pause take deep breath. Smile. Stretch..............
Reraise 3x bet (want it to lok like I'm making amove at the pot as I had just made a uber weak
move at a pot on river and gotten snap called by a weak hand).
BB insta-reraises all in.............. (UG.......No way he must have JJ - AA) there is no way.
YES! oh NO
BB turnes over 99 for the flopped higher set.
Brick! another brick on the WALL!
wsop all over again.
out 14th for 240.
I totally took out my frustration on the FT of the 22k on Full tilt.
raise. No reraise. 3-bet fine 4 -bet.
I think i knocked out 6 of 9 last players. But in order to win you must take out the last player.
I put myself in position to win and totally got impatient. tried to win the hu match in one hand. Rather than successive small battles.
2.2k buh bye.

New favorite poker related quote!

Whether he likes it or not, a man's character is stripped bare at the poker table; if the other players read him better than he does, he has only himself to blame. Unless he is both able and prepared to see himself as others do, flaws and all, he will be a loser in cards, as in life.
