Lose Your Lips Must Die
Friday I played a double header in SmBoat Drinks' poker league on Poker Stars.
7:00 Early Bird Special Seven Card Stud
I suck at this because I never play it. I never play it because I suck at it. What came first, the chicken or the egg? I dunno, but where it was only $10 I figured I'd give it a shot.
It was a great game. I get it now. I get the strategy and how to play. So much so, I wouldn't mind playing again. That's the good part.
Here's the mutha fawking bad part. I came in 4th place, the bubble. I had also bubbled the previous night. Grrrrrr I played for over 2 hours only to bubble and the good tournament was starting soon at 10pm. Fun time.
I was never shortstacked in the 10pm game. In fact, I stayed in 1st - 3rd place for most of the tourney. I did my thing, ruthless attacks, and putting my fishponents on edge - making them face tough decisions. The more you make your opposition make tough decisions, the more you win.
So I played this mofo for a hair less than 4 hours. I took out my boy SmBoat Drinks, like I usually do ;) and then finally I was heads up with Lose Your Lips.
Winner gets a "bracelet" a lot of points, and entry into ToC. I already had one win, and LYLMD had 2.
Oh how I wanted to even things up but nope. We didn't last heads up long. I played a little suited connector, 5/4 hearts and hit 2 hearts on the board. The river came a 3rd heart onto a paired board. I jammed all in and of course he called with a full house. ffs! gg very josie.
I'll get my revenge tonight. I have one target, LIPS.
