I won The Very Josie! It's the first time I've ever won my own tournament! I am so excited. The key to winning is getting good cards. :) I got pocket 10s 5 times, AA twice and all sorts of good starting hands.
Unfortunately, only 9 people played so it was a one table. I didn't realize that I didn't have late registration set up so Mojo got there a couple minutes late and couldn't get in but he railed for a while. I wonder if I would've won had Mojo played.....
The only downside to the game was that Wolfie baby took Dionysus out before I had a chance to play against him. Yes Dave was first out, and I didn't get his bounty. But the more I think about it, I took Wolfie out so I feel like I got Dave's chips once removed. :)
I was so happy to see Wolfie was playing. Haven't had a chance to chat with him for a while. And I figure if he's in the game, he's like a captive audience. He can't get away from my chatting. :) Wolfie was partying with ice cream and nyquil. Not that's quite a combination.
Wolfie took Lightbulb out and someone else who shall remain nameless. Damn Wolfie, how many bounties did you get? You are a poker pro! You cashed all while enjoying ice cream and nyquil!
My boy Bam-Bam played too. He sat next to me, to my right and seemed to play solid tight poker for quite a while. I don't think I've ever played with BamBam at my table and I have a VERY good memory for players. So I started thinking "What do I know about how BamBam plays?" Hmmmm went through the cranial files and came up with only one thing. I remembered reading a post of his where he played a $3 (90) person game (I think that was it) and he played ONLY ONE HAND and came in the money. I shiat you not. So he's a nitty old man. :) I figure I'll go with that until I get more info.
He sure played like a nit, so I only went up against him if I had a big hand. No draws, no mezza mezza crap. I didn't get many chips off him, till his last hand. Poor Bammer ended up being bubble when.....I took him out. I think I had an over pair to his top pair with jack kicker....that's the only way to get a nitty old man out. (I'm ready for you Mojo!)
Anyone ever notice how happy and positive Bammer is? He should give a seminar on how to achieve his bliss or something. Ummm a seminar that includes booze. :)
Okay down to Me (yay very josie!) HeffMike (booooooo) and Wolfie (meh). HeffMike was the chip leader until........Wolfie and I get in a hand. Flop was 9xx with 2 clubs. I have q-10 of clubs. I bet almost pot and he calls. Ut oh. turn is the 3rd club. Bing! I check, he bets I call. He goes all in on the river and I worry about a bigger flush but that doesn't stop me from calling. I win with my flush against Wolfie's pocket nines. He flopped trips. What a howl! lol
Down to me and HeffMike. I tell him how I've never won The Very Josie and how I NEED to win this. And then I tell him how awesome I am heads up and he should just roll over and die. :) I won about 5 hands in a row and Mikey was seriously shortstacked. His demise was 2-2. He raised and I called with 8-9. Flop was 8 high. Nice! Turn was a 10 and he jams all in. He was so short stacked I had to call him and I really didn't put him on a 10. I didn't even put him on ducks. He didn't improve and that was that. Yay!!! HeffMike was distracted by some 8th grade homework, and that can be a killer.
Winner, Winner, HeffMike Dinner!
But the lesson to be learned here is:
ONE TABLE, 8 GUYS, ONE CHICK.
PS. Here's a weird thought. Somehow the conversation turned to porn or prostitutes or something and Lightning mentions his Amy Fisher/Long Island Lolita post and then he says.....that I look like Amy Fisher! At first I'm thinking Nooooooo Efffing Way. He's never met me in person and I think I'm cuter than her. ( I really gotta work on that confidence thing) But!!! I just googled her and shiat, I think I do look like her! I dunno. Waffles has met the wonder that is Josie live...so tell me...do I frigging look like that psycho bitch?
Not Amy Fisher
I can kinda see it, I guess.
