Going for the Gold

First satellite tried, minimum $30 expended...giddyup.


You'll notice fellow blogger jamyhawk, finishing in fourth. I didn't play with him until the Final Table, but he was playing his typically solid game. I was one of the shorter stacks once the Final Table conveened, thanks to losing a race with JJ .v Big Slick (the King coming on the river, naturally), but stole my way back into contention. I got rid of a shorter stack with 6 left and finally got my biggest hand to that point at the Final Table (AQ. My raise was re-pumped by jamyhawk, his KQ looking pretty good 4-handed against the table maniac (though less so, I'm sure when I pushed, but he was pot committed) and my dominating hand held up, giving me a huge advantage over the rest. I got to heads-up with a 4.5-1 chip lead and soon squandered it, but by that time, I had a great read on my opponent and quickly took control again. When all the money went in, my lead was back up to 3-1. I still needed the re-suck, though.



Sunday. 3 o'clock L.A. time (6 p.m. Eastern). Come watch me get it on. The poker, I mean. Bring beer. Fifteen minute levels and 7500 starting chips.

Excellent!

Both you and the Drizzle had nice wins yesterday. Maybe I should have been playing poker instead of searching for frustratingly elusive ardvark on girl porn.

Bob, you'll never find the good stuff unless you spell it "aardvark". Trust me on this one.

Speaker: Giddy up.
