Okay, there was alot of poker played by ME Wednesday night. Let's start with the home game. Gary and I had a side bet. $5 for whoever won the most cash. After a hell of alot of good poker playing we wound up even. I won game 1 (a heads up game - I ROCK heads up). Then I split game 2, but game 3 wasn't ending fast enough for me and The Mookie was starting so I just jammed all in with a crappy hand, got called by a crappy hand and lost. Meh. What can u do.
I really pulled out all the stops to win too. I even wore a poker uniform, which I never do at home. Actually it was a sundress. So of course Gary snaps a picture of me with his camera. I thought he was trying to get back at me for posting that picture of him in the pink hat, until he mentioned something about putting it on his ceiling. Creep! And we ended up in a tie - that's like a win for Gary!
Onto The Mookie!
Note to self: I gotta stop threatening and swearing at guys I don't know. I like these poker bloggers yet I get so frustrated!!!
So I chip up early as usual and become chip leader too. I am rocking the table. Playing good hands, flopping top pair, 2 pair, over and over.
Doing great till.....I have over 8k in chips, After being chip leader for over an hour I'm 2nd in chips but not by much. I look down at KQ. I raise 4XBB and get called by PushMonkey. Flop is K-Q-5 off suit. Shazam! I bet, he raises, I reraise to like over 2k and he jams all in. Fuck. I'm hoping he has AK. He has a few more chips than I do.
I can't lay it down. Unhappily, I call. He has 5-5. Turn is another 5 and I am out!!
I am soooooo angry at Pushmonkey I put a bounty on his head. $10 to whoever takes him out but no one does. That's okay. I will KICK HIS ASS next week. I'm sure of it. I owe him a whupping, which I plan to deliver.
Lightning, shortstacked from the beginning (cuz he sucks at poker!!!) somehow hangs onto the final table...hangs on till in the money...and takes 2nd place. Nice going Lightning. For real yo. You play pretty good for an old guy.
Then.........I started on my challenge. 10 sngs. I am 0-3. I'm just not feeling those one tables. I think I have to be in the mood for them.
Whew. Now it's wicked late and I need to go to bed.
Some Thoughts On The Main Event - For the first time in, like forever, I watched a whole lot of the WSOP main event this year. Although one of the things that got me into poker was seeing ...
