Relatively Similar to Yesterday

I got deep in the Party $100 40K guar, and almost broke my final table drought there, but bubbled the ft, when my 22 couldn't hold to the chip leaders a7. He had earlier had a medium stacked and reraised my early postion raise (when I was pot commited) with k4 soooted. I made the auto call with aq, but he caught his flush. He proceeded to get lucky a number of other times, and then started playing relatively smart, ie: hyper aggresive with his huge stack. The blinds were preety large relative to most of our stacks, and he was making auto calls with kx.

Also had a real short stack stack in the 100R and managed to nurse it for a long time, but ended up bubbling in 22 (18 paid). Sitting in 50/144 in the 30R on Dise, after being short there also most of the way. The good is that I'm learning to play more patiently at times, switching gears etc.. but the bad is that well, I'd obviously like to have a big stack, and the flexibility to make more plays. Sometimes you just gotta work with what you're dealt.
