I made it in. Someday it's going to be hot and sunny in Boston.
As I was up uber early, and in the mood, I played a tourney on Full Tilt. If I won, I was going to stay home. Um, I'm here. I played an $8 tourney with 52 peeps. I played strong and smart. I was pretending I was at Seabrook and it seemed to work. When I play live I'm much more selective with my hands. Online, not so much.
Anyway, a couple of breaks later I was down to the final table with 6 itm. I'd been a chip leader for a while but suffered 2 bad beats, having the best hand till the river. Anyway I was out 8th when a guy in early position raised and I jammed all in (7k) with 6-6. He called with king jack off, the jack off! lol jk. Flop was 2-3-4. Hope! Turn was an 8. Exhilaration....Mama's doubling up! K on th river. Suck. LOL But it was FUN!
And it got me thinking. When I went to Seabrook 2 or 3 times ago I was the bubble jamming with 6-6. Perhaps I played a little too much like live! I have to stop jamming with those mediocre pairs. I know how to play post flop. Perhaps if I waited till after the flop was flopped Mr. Donkalicous would've folded.
Oh Lightbulb, your b-day gift is at your disposal. I suggest you start checking stuff.
Okay I ain't getting paid to blog about poker....well maybe I am, but still. Work calls.
Play smart, like I'm gonna do tonight. Still in tourney mood and I'm playing a big one tonight. I'm up for suggestions.
Oh, and my bad mood is finally gone and I know the culprit:
