There It Is!

Not my biggest cash, not a big field, but a win. A bleeping win!



For once, I got to play some Big Stack Poker. Went on a rush of cards with about 25 left, moving to the top of the heap. Down to two tables I took a ton of blinds and antes off short stacks trying to edge into the money. I began the Final Table second in chips and busted a couple players. We got to three-handed, all of us reltively even in chips, where we battled for a good 45 minutes. Back and forth, up and down, dip and feint. Finally, I doubled up off the chip leader--the primary aggressor most of the time--when he ran his 77 into my JJ. Suddenly, I had 80% of the chips. Four hands later, it was over.

Monkey. Off. Back.

It's great that you finally won a MTT and all, but could you tell monkey's friend to get off my back? Thanks!

It seems that a lot of people attending the WPBT are peaking at the right time. Talk about a tough tourney.

Twelve hundy is pretty good, but it's no $200 Nano.

Maybe I'll let you hold it in Vegas if I win.

Congrats on spanking the monkey.

Off your back, that is.

Congrats again!!

As for Aladdin on Friday morning, I might be in depending on how many shots I do on my birthday (Thursday) or if the strippers leave my room in a timely fashion.
