Feeble Attempt at Live Blogging


Hello My Brothas & Sistas,

I am playing the Poker from the Rail Tournament RIGHT NOW.  50 minutes into the game and I have 3,600 in chips.  Sitting next to DDionysus and first thing he says to me is "Did you scare away Lightning?" 

Obviously, I did.

I'll update every 15 minutes or so and let you know how I'm doing.

11pm - on first brea. 5,880 in chips..took shortstack out with pocket 8s.  He had 7-7 and the snowmen held up!  Woot!

Just got A-Q suited and raised to 3times the blind.  Reraise to 1300, an 2 all ins after that...then it's back to me and I fold.

Three hands are QQ, AK & AA.  Aces held up, and I folded the worst hand with A-Q.  Sheesh!  Only on Full Tilt!

Midnight ET and I'm on break again.  I have 7,200 left in chips but it's been a roller coaster ride.  I lost alot of my chips with QQ.  I called a stupid river bet with QQ while there was an ace on the board and what did the villian have?  AA!  Sure HIS held up.

Anyway I slowly built up my chips stack, taking someone out with 9-9 I reraised all in and got a call from 6-6 and they held up!  Woot!

22 players left - 15 in the money.  But you guys know I'm not playing for money tonight right?  I want that goddam seat!  All I have to do is figure out a way to get it.

In the money! 

Down to 15 players and I have over 20K.  I had QQ, with a 3 way all in....small stack won, but I got the lion's share.  Next hand same guy goes all in and I have AK Suited so I call.  Flop is KKK.

Let's see if I can hold onto these....

NOPE I cannot.  :(  Out in 10 place - one before final table. Won like $40.

Do I really have to tell you what my last hand was????  :((((  I'll give you a hint.  It rhymes with Ace-Fag.  You figure it out.  :P

Play smart.

Josie

Nice run, Josie. Looks like you have been playing solid poker in BBT5.

Can't break that habit can you?

Josie said...

Thanks guys! :)

Wolfie - I tossed ace rag maybe 30 times and I'm not exaggerating. Played it twice suited and lost both times. I'm done for real now. lol


I was shortstacked and it was the best hand I'd seen in a long while. A-8 suited. Never again tho.

Try A-Q -- especially against Waffles ...

Nice cash Josie, sorry about the bad finish. Actually got Ace rag to hold up for me last night. Flopped the nut flush and the second nuts bet into me the whole way. Otherwise, its a worthless hand used by frauds and charlatans to take down good people holding KK and QQ then spewing off all those chips to some other sunglasses wearing wannabe. But I'm not bitter.

Josie said...

Lightning, thanks for the advice BUT....
1. Waffles wasn't in the game
2. If you read my post you'll see that I tossed A-Q and would've lost with it.

Now give me GOOD advice so I can get to that ToC and kick your butt!

@Neo - Nahhh you're not bitter at all. ;) Glad ace rag held up for you....one of these days.....

Rymes with A fag.... Wolfhead! No that does not fit.. hmm..

Never listen to Lightning. I have sent a formal petition to Full Tilt to remove his TOC seat since he can not even spell Poker. So obviously he could not have a Poker Blog.

Oh and Gratz on the 10th! You have been getting right in there.. you just need your cards to hold one time and you will make it.

Josie said...

@Waffles - LOL you crack me up.
