I was playing a 22$ 10x 109$ tickets gtd tournament 15 left and chip lead. I’m SB and the BB is the second biggest chip stack, I raise with 89 and he calls on an 8 high flop with two hearts. I bet 3/4 pot and he re-raises, I ship “I’m the daddy of this table not you” I think . He calls me with a Queen high flush draw and hits it on the turn. I go from chip lead to 14th with 15 players remaining. A poker table is no place for ego, I screwed 2 hrs work in one hand. I ground my way back up and managed to get a seat, but I was lucky, very lucky. I shoved A6 from the button and was called by the big blinds A4, he hit two pair on the flop but a 6 on the turn gave me full double up.
