How could I have forgotten? During the $5K guarantee KO game I was dealt 9♣9♥ in the small blind (15/30). I was the second-largest chip stack at the table, with about 4,500. Four of the six others were between 570 and 1,900. Short-stacked UTG went all-in for 570, the button called (leaving 1,070 behind), and I called. The flop was 6♦K♦9♠. Pocket kings had me beat, but I wasn’t too worried. I thought I’d see how far the button was willing to go on his own, and checked. The button checked and the turn card was 6♠. Now pocket 6s also had me but I went all-in for almost 4K. I guess the button didn’t think I had much. He called. Then the 9♦ showed up on the river. When the cards went over, the small stack had K♣T♦ for a higher two pair than the T♥A♣ of the bigger stack, but neither beat my two pairs of nines. Two bounties and 3,880 chips.
