I Accept



It took me 6 shots at satellites to make it in at a cost of a little over $80. Not exactly getting in "cheaply," but the $602 payout made it worthwile. I played g00t. Got my money in dominating at the end, with AJ no less, but J7 flopped two pair. In the interest of full disclosure, I spiked a 3-outer earlier to stay alive (quite possibly one of the worst mis-reads of my poker career, that one). I squeaked past the bubble with an M of 2 and about 6K chips. The hit some big hands and went another 350 spots. I was feeling the flow and am a little bummed to not go deeper. Still, I out-lasted 2900 people and all the pros. Maybe the game is coming around.

Thanks to the railbirds and birdettes. When I think of you, it will be fondly.

Sadly, I have let my world class pokering skillz die a slow death. It's been rare that I've played, and even more rare that I've wanted to.

Kind of like writing.

The good news is that I've increased my porn and alcohol consumption.

Maybe we should make T-shirts for the December Vegas trip that say "I cashed in the FTOPS but all I got was this lousy T-shirt"

Or thank the poker gods for shining a little light in our direction for a change.

Well done Speaker!!!
