Ugh

Out of the invitational in 20 minutes!!!  Stupid bluff with 3 clubs on the board.  And Snail Trax, the guy in the hand, had the flush.  Not good.  Dunno why I even did that.  Had plenty o chips and everything.  Duh.  And guess who was at my table?  Waffles himself!  He and I had a little incentive bet going on....obviously it didn't help me. We'll see if adds enough motivation to make Waffles win.  Right now he has 3,700.

I'll update periodically while I play an MTT.

About 1 1/2 hrs into it and Waffles has about 10K.  He made an all in call with a flush draw and caught his flush on the river......Ace rag beats AA (Coop can feel the pain, can't you Coop?).  Why is it I always lose with ace rag, but Waffles?  He cracks aces with it.

And Waffles is out!  Loses with AA.  Flop was 9,9,4.  All in and up against Joanne's 4-4.  Out 3 before the money.  Heartbreak, but Waffles you played so well. 

Turns out some things are more important than a ToC seat.....to Waffles, anyway.  And since I'm SUCH a good sport, I'm extending the incentive for one more week....and adding first OR second place finish to the mix.  That's all you need to do Waffles...just come in second and win a prize!

Play smart.

"Good luck Sunday night. Remember, the field should be loaded again. The variance in finishes in blogger tournaments is tremendous. One week you final table, the next week you don't make the first break."

Damn smart, I know ...

Ha -- I thought you were a little (lol) cocky after your success last week. Welcome to the world of blogger tournaments.

btw -- You might want to win one of these before you start crowing too much. lol

Josie said...

Moi cocky? LOL I'm going to leave that one alone...too easy.

And I WILL crow as much as I want and I WILL win one of these suckers. I have a secret weapon for winning. An incentive bet with Waffles....well it worked for HIM anyway. He played bettter than he played in years.

Okay, I'll consider this your "nice" comment. Lord knows compared to the others it's pretty goddamned nice.

Too bad on Sunday. I was out playing or I would have checked in to see how you were doing.
