sold out.....

OK, so the condo finally sold this week after almost four months on the market. whee.

Anyhow, so I move out in mid-March, but not before taking some time on my birthday to go donk around in AC at this for a couple of days

We'll see how well I play. I swear, ever since Halloween and the UIGEA passed, I've just been a massive donator at the tables. I really don't think the games are that much harder: I think I'm playing poorly and running bad, a horrible combination.

I keep changing things up to find a sweet spot - lately it's been 5/10 to 10/20 Omaha/8 and HORSE, which treats me ok, but I swear every time I raise a premo hand like AAxx or KKxx with wheel cards preflop, someone flops two pair or rivers a straight on me and the flopped low draw never gets there, so I get scooped like a donk.

Whether it's the Ante Up Tournaments, the WWdN, or the Mookie, I'm either donking myself out (raise KK preflop, get one caller out of position, watch an A flop, stack off anyway) or losing coinflips. I just want to get even for the year before all the online sites finally shutdown to U.S. players.

Anyhow, maybe soon there will be house news to report. Wish me luck - 2007 results say I need it..... :-)

pros pwn, rebuys not so bad.

John D'Agostino pwned me last night. Whee.



I rarely jump on a table with a Full Tilt pro when they pop on a table - usually the wait list is too deep - but Jdags just popped onto a couple of 2/4NL tables, and the list was short enough for me to get on the table.

First hand I'm dealt, I post in the cutoff, JDags limps UTG, 90 people call, I pop a pot-sized raise in position with AJo, I get the BB and JDags to call, flop checks through (because I suck) and when the turn checks to me, I bet.
Of course, after my turn bet, John min raised me, I called, and he jammed the blank river. I really think he had a busted draw more than two pair/set/straight, but I folded like a little girl. It was a good fold overall, I think. I made it up later on the table after he left, so no big deal.

Otherwise, I really sucked honoring the Hammer last night (finished something like 130 of 160, but better than Jenn!), but rallied to finish 5th in a $10 rebuy tourney (129 runners, in for 30, out for 270) for a nicely profitable night. I forget that the rebuys allow you to play a little deep-stacked poker after hour one, which I'm so much better at than pushbot shortstacked freezeout tourneys...

DQB works in emailaments too.

Hey I finished 22nd of 1286 in this thing last year...... and WRGPT 16 has been running smooth for me as well, as you can see here.

It's great when you flop the nutz and get someone to bet into you on every street. Too bad it's just for bragging rights and no coin is involved..... 

Hey, Top 20 stack with under 450 players left isn't bad.

mookie

While I've been just a godawful tournament player lately, I actually did OK in this last night....

  Odd things - I was playing ridiculously tight. I didn't even see 10% of the flops. But I was raising a lot preflop and stealing blinds and pots with pretty good hands - it's just no one wanted to play postflop with me once we got into hour two.
   Had the chip lead with two tables to go, ran into a shortie's KK two hands in a row with TT, then JJ at 200/400 to drop 2/3rds of that fat stack.... but won a couple races with 88 and TT to recover nicely to close to the chip lead when we hit the final table.
   Once there, I just went completely card dead, missed every flop, and even when I was pretty sure I was getting played back at with marginal hands.... I had no fold equity if I moved in, and all I could beat was a momo bluff... Open pushed JTs five-handed with 8BB left, got called by AJ in the BB, I did flop a flush draw, but didn't get there.

    Oh well, a surprisingly relaxing night for me. I felt like I could and should have done deeper, but given how horrible I've been playing any tournament larger than a SnG, I'll take it.
