Very nice table! Although it got ugly early! A few minutes into it and HeffMike had 25 chips left. Shelly annihilated him when she hit a full house, jammed all in and got paid off. Heff had trips. So tonight, he truly WAS the first loser. First one out of the tourney!
KeepFlopping was out 2nd and I believe that was Jordan's doing. That Jordan!
I started out playing very tight. Hard to believe, right? But it's true. Tonight's play was tight early on, playing premium hands and just doubling the blind instead of big raising. It really worked for me. When i hit the flop I got paid off and I hit the flop a few times. I knocked out Lucky Duck when I hit a K high flop while holding big slick.
Speaking of knocking people out, I knocked out a ton of them. In fact I even made a list!
Knocked out by Josie
Lightning started off quite aggressive. He was on my left and whenever I was in a pot he'd jump in and type "It's ooooonnnnn!!!!". But I held to my game plan. I chipped my way up slowly and took Lightning's ass out when I turned a straight. And got paid off by the old guy!
For the majority of the mtt I was 2nd in chips....2nd to Jordan who was at the other table. He kept getting the chip lead and there wasn't much I could do about it....until the final table.
We played 4 handed and 3 handed for a long time. GG to SmBoatDrinks who bubbled because Jordan hit his double belly buster straight draw. And yes, Jordan had the chips to pay for the cards.. BoatDrinks played a great game though. Team Fish rocks!!!! Although he pushed me around a little in tonight's game. Don't think I didn't notice BoatDrinks! Mama sees all.
Okay, so Jordan takes care of the bubble and gg SmBoatDrinks. 3 handed for a while and then he knocks out Adam.
Then it's me and the villian heads up. Appropriately enough, Jordan is on the other team in Survive Donkey Island. I had a small chip lead and wasn't feeling great about this heads up match, but in less than 5 minutes I had all of Jordan's chips.
Very Josie won The Very Josie! (again)
Those bounties I threw out there - one on me and one on Lightning....no one won either of them cuz I was poetry in motion baby! lol Obviously I'm laying it on thick,but seriously, I stayed focused and played well. Did I get a few good hands? Hell yeah! But as I told Lightning, I played
Some others from Team Donkey showed up like The Goat, and Katitude. Thanks for playing! You can check out The Goat's demise below.
Now I was at the other table so I don't know when The Goat decided to jam all in with the hammer. lol I cannot WAIT to play Survivor Donkey Island with this guy!
Thanks to MiamiDon for some really good HU advice. It worked! Oh and Don took down that little game called The Mookie. Josie and Don FTW!!!
Play smart, and maybe someday you'll win a Very Josie t-shirt....like I did tonight.
