Is this the real life, is this just fantasy....
I don't know if you've heard, but I'm going to Vegas in December to play in the Winter Classic. Yes, if you're dying to meet Very Josie, and you're willing to buy me drinks, be sure to drop me an email. :)
Wonderful PokerStars is sponsoring the LuckBox Last Longer Challenge! Teams must consist of 3 players. Poker Stars is putting thousands of dollars into a prize pool just for us. The team that lasts longest gets $500 each in their Poker Stars account. 2nd is $300 each, 3rd is #200 each!
Plus there are other ways to win. They are putting (10) $100 bounties on some
old original bloggers. Plus $50 bounties for those who win with The Hammer. I love me a bounty!
The coolest thing of all though, is that I am playing on a team with Waffles and Lightning. Lightning christened us Da Killer B's!!! Boobs (me) Brawn (waffles' new jogger's bod) and Brains (Lightning ain't just a pretty face).
We will last longest!! And then roll around in our Pokerstars dollars!
I just came in 3rd place in The Mookie. Field of 12 players, with 3 places paid. NY Rambler won.
I was short stacked early on when Lightning flopped trip 9s with an ace kicker. I had me top 2 pair and thought I was good, but no. So I was down to under 1,000 and at one point made it to chip leader, but ran into a couple of bad beats. That's poker baby.
Wanna hear how Lightning busted out? :)
He had oodles of chips early on (thanks to me!) and he had AK spades. There's a raise and a call and he's heads up with the lovely Joanne. Flop is KQx 2 spades. Bet, raise call. Turn is a spade, and river is an ace. Light has aces and kings, but he loses to Joanne who has trip queens. That's a tough one, but it's okay.
You know why?
Because we weren't teammates in this tourney. My teammate Lightning is gonna kick ass in Vegas - I have a very good feeling about this.
