And now the good news: Matt Matros, a poker player whom I respect greatly and have learned a lot from over the years (via his book and card player articles) won his third bracelet in as many years. This is the guy from whom I received an "a-ha!" moment when he wrote (paraphrasing here) that if you want to money in a tournament, your focus should be on avoiding getting blinded away, but if you want to win the tournament, you have to accumulate chips. Sounds simple, but this is actually quite profound.
All-in for now...
