Been a while!

I finally tried a $25+ online tournament!

Half my bankroll on the one site on the line! LOL! Thriving under pressure I guess!

I came in 2nd for $195....

Hands that made me: 52o and Q9s [52o was lucky accident and 22 came on the flop]

Hands that broke me: AKs and 83s

Fresh from another tournament, my only one today/2nite....

DynamitePoker Tournament Summary

For: lemonade
Tournament Name: Classic $2 TNT ($10 Added)
Type: Holdem
Date/Time: 9 Mar 2004 4:00 am EST
Total Buy-In: $2.00
Total Players: 15
Total Prize Pool: $86.50

You have finished in position number 1 out of 15 players.

Prize Total: $43.25 / 2 points


Final hand:

KdTc vs AhTh suited [by chance the same 2 cards this same guy crippled my big stack with earlier, seemed fitting! ]

He called my All-In after turn he had just a flush draw and I already had 2P on the flop. He told me that and tried to chat me, I went silent... he took his 4.24 shot.... I had him outchipped 2 to 1 so didn't matter to me that much. LOL!

I was by far in 3rd place when it came to final 3 and I knocked out both of them.....

That seems to be my pattern though for final tables.

Earlier in the day, I played 1 hour of 50 cents/1 dollar limit Omaha 8 or better Hi/Low (O8B):

Up $30 or 30BB, I won all 6 hands I showed down. Only 1 hand that I went to the river card and wound up with squatola....

My poker is definitely at the next level, feeling very confident now.... not cocky, but more confident...

What I have finally beat was my problem with patience.... YAHOO! That and I am not scared $ anymore....

Many thanks to my wife! Love ya!

Monday, March 08, 2004

My first hour as PRO online player....

Up $30 or 30BB! 8) Omaha 8 Hi/Low.... .5/$1 limit....

Damn, I'm good! hehe

Key hand: 5532 rainbow, I scooped with it!
Sadly only 1 person was left after flop gave me trips, I wound up with full house and 32 made 2nd nut low.
My opponent and I capped after TURN!

He left the table soon after, but that was a common occurance at MY table. LOL!
After 1 hour, only 1 guy I started with was left, I wonder why?

The free roll weekly FINAL was today at 8am PST. No Limit Hold'em!

I got out of bed at 6:30 am unexpectedly, I honestly expected to sleep through it.

I took a caffeine pill and 2 colas and worked on wifey's PC issues.

SO here it goes:

We only started with 1000 in chips, I was in top 5 for almost all of it, pre-final table.

Once there, it was taking forever to get down to the final 4 who move on to the Quarter Finals in April.

Key hand for my tournament though was this one:

AcKc

I re-raised PF, 2 callers....

FLOP:

4c 6c Qc

I raised 1080 ALL-IN, I had stumbled earlier with trip aces vs trip aces and kickers both sucked, but mine was lower to knock me down from top 3 to 16th.

BOTH guys called my ALL-IN!

Turn: Jd

River: 9s

I have the nuts but the remaining 2 bet about 1200 between them over and above the main pot.

One of them had: QQ!

Anyhow, I had about 6500 and a nice leap back into first by about 2000, that was a key hand for sure.

When we got heads up, I was at about 11500 vs 36500, GASP!

Key hand I think was K8 vs AT

I went AI with K8, he called, he was up by only 4750 at the time, and two 8's magically appeared on the board...

Next hand played out: A9 vs Q8

He has A9 and board winds up A99xx

I double him up and then:

I get Kh6h, and I'll never know what he had, I AI'd him, he called, I got Ace High with board and he mucks and it's over!

2 consecutive victories!

There was a field of 94 to start this one, but only 49 showed up.... You had to be logged in at 8am, if you weren't you got removed....

Now I wish I could take a nap!

At the final table I was in last through 5th in chips for most of it, final 4 happened when 2 people who both folded hands leaving themselves with under 75 in chips (70 and all of 5 for the other!) Someone FINALLY knocked them both....

I WON IT!?!

2 consecutive victories! This time against ALL the top 10 free rollers from the previous week, so not a weak field at all!
