Baynes made an entrance showing up a tiny bit late, but what a pleasant surprise. I could've kissed that frog! (frog avatar) Baynes I think you can leave work at a decent time one a month, right? The Very Josie is only once a month!
2 tables. I started off with Mojo, Kat, Edgie, GoBurn1, Baynes & Ducky at my table. Started off playing good and stayed that way. Caught some decent cards early on and kept the chips I won. But that Damn Mojo was a thorn in my side for the whole game. He got MORE chips early on and held onto them too. Mojo will now be called Nemesis from here on. And Meanie, and Ugly, and....well you get the idea. Cricket thinks he's sweet like I USED TO. lol
Okay I was having too much fun chatting to actually pay attention to the game, but here's what I do remember.
Gary was out first. He was playing on the other table, so I didn't witness his demise. But when I stopped by his table to visit and chat, very early on, I noticed he was gone. He pushed all in preflop with ACE RAG. Specifically A-8. My boy Frankie had K-Q, called him and flopped a straight. Gary was having a hard day, so we're gonna cut him a little slack. Hard to play good when your mind's elsewhere.
My favorite Canadian, Coop, was out 12th. Yes Schaubs, he's my fave. Unlike someone, I'm on his blog roll. Coop got his favorite hand, Pocket Rockets! My sister had Fish hooks. I wasn't there for the betting but I know that Cricket caught another jack for trips and hurt Coop badly. Coop was shortstacked, but he was my pick to win The Very Josie so I was rooting for a comeback. It didn't happen. Both Coop and his Canucks lost. Coop out 12th, the Canucks a 2nd place finish. :) Just remembered that Kat's Canadian too. She's my other favorite canuck.
Kat was out 11th, and I don't remember what happened. Don't think I did it. Must've been Mojo.
Go Burn1 out 10th. I took that boy out and got a bounty. No dinner though. :)
Wolfie lasted longer than I expected. He was out 9th...lol....he made it to the final table. That's good FOR HIM. I'm just kidding around. Wolfie was playing 4 games at once which I cannot imagine doing but I'm glad he did. He made time for my tourney and you know why? Because he likes me! :)
I busted Frankie out 8th, I think. I flopped trips and bet and bet and bet. He had a two pair and I got all his chips. Sorry sweetie.
Duck got hunted down in 7th place. Baynes was out 6th. Really cool that he was able to show up though.
Edgie was out 5th. Edgie says he's a blogger but I've never heard of him. Edgie if you're reading this drop me a comment so I can check out your blog. I like Edgie. Know why? I'm on his Google Reader. Obviously, The Edge has some damn good taste.
Down to 4. Someone has to be the bubble. My sister, Mojo and I had the biggest stacks. Jordan had a puny little one. (talking about his CHIP STACK). Anyway....soon enough my sis gets shortstacked. Mojo and I have about 15k in chips and they have between 2 and 4K each. We go round and round for quite a while till Jordan takes my sister out. She shoved with pocket 3's and got called by Jordan with a higher pocket pair. Buh-bye Sis. Cricket played damn good tonight.
Down to the 3 of us. Me, Mojo and Very Jordan. I was my usual tight but aggro self. If I had the goods I was betting hard....unless I had the nuts....slow played once or twice with good results. Jordy was shortstacked but not out by a long shot. Some people know how to play shortstacked. He's one of those guys. We played 3 handed FOREVAH. Very Jordan and I had a $5 side bet and man I wanted that money. Nah, it's not the money I wanted soooo much, it's the win. But in the end I had ace rag against his picture cards I THINK, and he connected while I didn't. Out 3rd. Factor in the prop bet, the knockout bountys and my Mookie buyin and I'm even steven. Like kissing my sister.
Mojo took out Jordy when Jordy flopped trips. Mojo was on an open ended straight draw after the flop and yes he connected and took Jordo out. Great players and a great game.
We played 3 handed for quite a while and I have to tell you I love a challenge and challenging they were. Now Mojo won the game, but I was most impressed with Jordan's playing. I'm woman enough to tell you he made it happen. Yeah he got some good hands. We all did. But the way he played ALL his hands got him to 2nd place. Kinda reminds me of myself. *smile* (except I DON'T raise repeatedly with 2-7 off suit and yell HAMMER when I win with it. hee hee) And he did this while I trash talked him MERCILESSLY. Didn't phase him a bit. Right, Schnuckums?
Money's one thing. Getting to chat with 10 guys at once...priceless. That's MY kind of night. I had the most fun chatting with The Wolf. He cracks me up. There's something about him that I like.
Speaking of guys I like, as I type this Riggs is at the final table of The Dank. He's second in chips with 35K. If he doesn't fall asleep, he just may himself a ToC seat. 6 players left...Oops, now Riggs is down to 23K. He called an all in with AA. He was up against 9-7 suited.
Flop 9-7-8...Full Tilt Special! Ouch. After that he was out 5th. Damn fine showing, but no ToC seat. Know what he lost with? Yup, Ace Rag (8)....Still, it was the best hand. He was up against K-6 and lost to sixes.
Both Riggs and I got knocked out with Ace Rag. Just further proof that it's a piece of shit hand. Think of it as a diseased hooker. Looks appealing but it's deadly.
Time for Mama to hit the hay. I'm a little bummed though. I don't want to wait an entire month to do that again.
