Remind me again why I dislike tournaments?

Oh yeah, because I like to go deep in them and then do something really stupid.

The inaugural pokerstars blogger tourney was just exited by yours truly.

I did well for a while, running my chips up to 25th or so with 800 remaining, but then a cold spell of cards hit and as the blinds went up, my chips went down.

My final hand I held QQ on the button with 10k in chips, two limpers to me and I made it 2000 to go with blinds at 200/400 ante 25. One caller. Flop was 3-hearts with a King. Checked to me, I bet 4k into a 5k pot and he c/r's me all in which I call. At this point i'm praying he's drawing to his hearts as I dont see him limping AK but no... A3 hearts and i'm toast.

It was a nice flop for him, but I should have checked immediately on that flop and conserved my chips. DUMBASS.

Anyhoo, thats why I dont play tournaments... because I like to go 2 hours and then fuck it all up.

On the upside, I got to play with Matt "Jacksup" Matros for a few hands though we never tangled.

I finished ahead of a lot of players who I respect (277 out of 1473), so I figure i didn't donk it up totally.

Thanks PokerStars... you're the best!

My cash games have not treated me well this weekend. One of my first hands today I get AA and re-raise an early raiser, one donk calls, the raiser pushes for another $10, I re-raise to $50 and the donk calls. Flop is Kxx two hearts. I push my remaining 43, donk calls... blank.. heart.

Guess what the donk has? thats right bitches, J9s in hearts. That silly fucker called $50 of real no-nonsense money at a 100NL table pre-flop with fucking Jack Nine Suited.

After dropping a bit more, i worked it back to only be down $40 for the day.

I wish stars had a buddy list.

The simple pouring out of online casino gamble is apt to become tiresome to all save the lover and the beloved; but in reading Shakespeare's sonnets we are sensible of no such loss of gusto. online casino gamble online casino gamble

Looks like you are going to have to turn on that word verification thing.

I agree 277 out of 1473 is not a bad thing at all. I would be more than happy with that outcome.

I agree,

I love PGA GOLF. and recently I have bought stock in it. Not like real stock on Wall street, but a stock market that is strictly for sports.

You have seen it? Its pretty cool. You buy issues for your favorite golfers and you make real money. Not like a fake stock simulator. I cash out Dividends each time your golfer plays in a tournament. Also I can sell my players stock when the price goes up.

check it out if something like this interests you.

This site has lots of data about dividends and game pots and golfers. It also has alot of information about how the market works.



See you there!
