And then today, I got stacked by a maniac for most of what was left of my roll (3 way all in AK = AK << the maniac's 65 FTL!). At one point I was down to my case $43 but no way in heck I was leaving my seat three to the right of a crazy person sitting on 4 1/2 buy ins!
I slowly chipped up and restacked the maniac with QQ versus an overplayed JJ where we both had an over pair to the board. Was back up $140 at that point, but couldn't leave out of shear etiquette despite having my roll (then back to $490 or so) on the table -- and then, naturally, ran AQ into AK on an A high flop.
Maniac eventually went busto, natch. I came back for one more crush.
I ended up $200 today, but, to paraphrase President Eisenhower, that happened, but, by God, it didn't just happen.

Past the parson's place
In the old blue car
We used to race
A little country store with a sign tacked to its side
Said: NO L-O-I-T-E-R-I-N-G-A llowed
(Underneath that sign always congregated quite a crowd)
