one banana, two banana!

I can't do much, but I can play a split pot game....

I played OK - I pushed some thin edges, and (naturally) spiked a couple of luckbox hands - but I really, for once, felt comfortable and in charge at a final table. Mickey Jay played well too - we started heads up about even, I went up 3-1, then he did, and finally I rallied back and nailed it down. Woot! to the Ante Up! Nation.

1) don't forget to go here and vote.

2) check out the better half's blog because she's the best thing that ever happened to me.

Later - Heff.

baby steps

OK, managed to finish 5th in the Mookie by being a short-stack ninja, open shoving for the last hour and a half, all while managing to run into AK in the blinds every time I jam six-handed...  I guess the only way I can make it deep in these tourneys is by being a nit (13% of flops seen, half what I usually do, and winning 30 hands without a flop) and shoving for value.... boring, but it seems to work.

Also made it to Stars' WCOOP Horse tournament through a Turbo satellite using just player points, so freeroll for me! - I barely cashed in it last year.... prolly will take longer than 8 hours to do that this year ... :-(

So whee for me - Heff
