Not Bad, For A Rookie...

I'm not off to Australia... Which really doesn't surprise me, so I'm not really disappointed in it. I finished 16th of 42 players. I have to say I really did have a good tournement. I got into a little bit of trouble early on when my AK didn't amount to anything and I got caught with my hand in the cookie jar trying to represent a hand, but made it back up a few hands later with a well played AA against the chip monster on the table. My stack pretty much followed the tournement average for the entire go-round. Then this happens. I get 67h in the small blind. Folded around to me so I pop it up to 3x the BB for the steal and get called... Flop gives me the open ended straight draw and 4 to the flush. I throw out a pot sized bet and BB doubles it. Hmmmm. BB is a good player but is in chip trouble, so this raise could mean anything. I check, he shoves. I have him readily covered in chips so I call it and I catch my straight on the river to knock him out.

Next hand I get AA on the button. A couple of limpers and I pop it for a decent raise to see if they're serious. SB (an equal stack to me) calls and the limpers bow out. Flop comes with a rainbow of low cards and I'm thinking I'm money here. SB throws out a pot sized bet and I double it. He calls and a K of whatever falls. No flush possible and I'm feeling pretty good about my aces. SB checks and I sense weakness, so I shove and he calls and turns over a pair of 8's. I'm eleated until I notice an 8 fell on the flop. No help for the Klingon and I'm gone. Hero to Zero in two hands.

That's Poker!

This is the kind of site I've been looking for. Definitely bookmarkable! If you get a chance, can you check out mortgage interest rate . I'm fairly new to building websites, and would value any opinions
on my mortgage interest rate site.

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
