De-Throned

One man did it, and he did it while taking care of a silly baby.  HeffMike kicked my ass.  Notice the choice of words?  I didn't say he winned, I said he kicked my ass, and for good reason.  We played best of 5 and he won the first 3 games.  Freaking shut out.  OMFG.  I battled away but I just wasn't on my game and I wasn't playing like I usually did.  Instead of taking control, as I like to do, I just laid there and took it.  So not me.  Neo Baby was railing and even commented how I didn't seem like myself...I wasn't even really trash talking.  I dunno.  All I know for sure is that HeffMike sucks donkey balls.  That and I will give him a link here for the next 5 days.  Blah.  FWIW HeffMike is a fine poker player, but wasn't anything special HU, getting in baaaad as much as good, but the cards just fell his way.  Couple that with my shitty playing, and I am dethroned.  I know I should be more gracious that this, especially considering I really respect Heffy's game, but I dunno. I should've beaten him HU.  My HU play failed me again later on btw....a fail that hurt as much as being dethroned.

Let me give you a quick recap of the night though......

I made my sister a birthday cake when I got home.  A (hopefully) yummy triple layer lemon cake with the most luscious filling topped with a chocolate sunflower. (handmade by me) Then....

I played the Booze Cruise with smBoatDrinks last night, which was a limit H/L Omaha game and I came in 3rd - ITM!  I won $6, but it cost me $5.50 to play.  Alot of fun as usual.  Oh and guess what?  Not only is today my sister's birthday, it's also SmBoatDrinks birthday AND Boaty's brother's bday too!  How weird is that?

Happy Birthday Boaty!

When Sumo (Boat's bro) told me about their shared bday I assumed twins (bestill my beating heart) but no.  They are 10 years apart.  Hmmmm one is 32 and one is 42....

Then I lost the HeffMike HU challenge.....Grrrrr I will crush him!

Then I decided it was time for some satellite playing.  I could only find one. $24 game and winner gets the $216 token, and 2nd place got like $48.  Like 12 peeps.  I did my thang, and took people out like I do.  I was first or second for the entire game.  Fast forward 2 hrs later and we are HU.  Winner gets the big prize 2nd place gets a tiny, why waste your time prize.  Going into it I had more chips than him and yet, I lost HU.  Even though I had the chip lead.  Big diff between $216 and $48 dammit.

See below.


Below are a couple of pictures of my sistah's cake.  I made the sunflower out of chocolate one petal at a time.  I dunno if I like the look but I know it'll taste amazing. 





At first the base of the cake was going to look like a terracotta flower pot and I was going to fill it with small flowers, but I took the easy way out.  Blah.  Not just because this was easy, but because I was worried that a giant terracotta pot might not look appetizing. 

Oh and congrats to Lightning, who I railed as I was playing my satty.  He came in 2nd place in a 50+ peep game and played AMAZINGLY. (Personally, I am amazed that I just typed that sentence but I have to call them like I see them). 

Happy Birthday Cricket, Boaty and Sumo!!!

"Lightning ... played AMAZINGLY."

Finally some truth in advertising on your blog ... lol.

Good job on the satty. You put yourself in good position to win, but sometimes things just do not work out.

Are you actually going to play in any of the FTOPS events, or just save the tourney credits?

Josie said...

Light, those are the only 2 I've played so far, as Survive Donkey Island was taking up most of my poker playing time. It's good to get back to the satellites. If I win another one or 2 I'm going to give it a shot.

Tara said...

WOW, that cake looks amazing!!!

Josie said...

TY Tara! I'm feeling about as tired as you these days!

Heffmike said...

1) That cake looks tasty.

2) Showing your bitterness, padawan is, hmmm....

I played a little better than OK. But I know it causes great pain for you to admit that. I suppose this is a good enough gesture for now.

3) I'll let you make that $33 back from your other challengers before we go again.

You forgot to mention who won the Booze Cruise

Josie said...

Who said I forgot? I know it was somebody ugly....Hmmmm...now who was it?

SirFWALGMan said...

Heffmike deserves no respect. :P.

Why did a rabbit poop on the top of your cake?

Josie said...

LOL It does kinda look like bunny poop but it's not!

bastinptc said...

Great cake. Very impressive.

Josie said...

Thanks Bastin!

Wolfshead said...

I know it was somebody ugly.

See, you do know who it was

Josie said...

Wolfie, you're not ugly. Trust me, I'm an expert.
