Take a look at that stack!
The oranges are 1,000 chips, the purples, $5,000 and on top of those orange chips are my green $25,000 chips.
I just got home from my Foxwoods tournament and I have soooo much to tell you! There was alot of controversy and yelling and screaming (not by me!) at the end, so we have alot of ground to cover my friends. For now I'll give you the highlights.
I went down with my crazy sister Cricket, who deserves a separate post of her own. Lynne never came down, but guess who did? Hoyazo! It was the first time I'd ever met him and I didn't know what he looked like. Maybe an hour or so into the game I looked up and there was this hunka hunka burning love in a Phillies t-shirt waving to me. Had to be him, right? Unfortunately even though he and I played in the same tourney, we were never at the same table, nor were we even in shouting distance of each other. I would've loved to be the one to take his bounty. Heh.
Now I like Hoy but there's one thing about him that kinda pisses me off. I'M NOT ON HIS BLOG ROLL! I've asked him
4,177 times more than once to add me, but that always fell on deaf ears. I decided to try once more.
"I need a little incentive to win this tourney. How about if I make it to the final table you add me to your blog roll? It'll take you 3 minutes and don't say no!"
"Alright, you final table and I'll add you." he agreed although I got the feeling he only agreed because he thought 'no way in heck she's gonna do that.'
BUT I DID.
Swing by HOY'S PLACE to see me, VERY JOSIE, on his blog roll. Someone should've told him it was only a matter of time. You do not say no to Very Josie, right Jordan?
There were about 290 peeps in this deep stack bounty event and I came in 4th. 4th baby!!!!!!! I was actually on course to win the whole thing. I was NEVER short stacked through the whole event but I made one bad call/decision after 14 hours of playing and went from 2nd in chips to the shortie.
Game started at 11am and 14 hours later I was knocked out at about 1am. That's a loooooong day of ups and downs and alot of men yelling at me - more than I've ever experienced in my life. More on that later though but I must say, it was the closest I ever got to crying in a casino - BUT I DIDN'T. I think I was just over tired and overwhelmed and I let them get to me. By "them" I mean the regulars at Foxwoods. It seemed that there were regulars and nonregulars. The nonregulars loved me, but the others not so much. Once I got the chip lead I pretty much ran roughshod over the table and they didn't like it.
Here's the results though:

Yes, you read that correctly! 4th place and $4,177. 4th out of 290 players. Not to shabbay.
You may have read about the deal I cut with Gary before the tourney. He paid 1/3 of my buyin to receive 1/3 of my winnings less my expenses. Yeah, maybe I should've capped his earnings potential like I usually do but this time I didn't.
Why? I frigging worked him like a dog to create poker business cards to my exact specifications and he did. Plus he took me to the doctor when I was sick so I'm glad he's getting lots of money.
I have so many hands to tell you about and so many guys to tell you about. I shiat you not in the 14 hours I played poker I got an offer of jewelry, two dinner invitations and a few other kinds of invitations I'm too much of a lady to discuss. I just don't understand how me kicking your ass at poker is attractive but I'm not complaining. Men are funny. Half of them forgot we were there to fight for money, not date. The other half; they remembered why we were there and didn't like me one bit. Fuck 'em.Big poker recap to come.
In the mean time, play smart.
