- played about as bad as you could play HORSE in the WCOOP Saturday - didn't even get to the second rotation, and bounced out in the 1400s like an idiot. Basically, in the Stud rounds, either people kept calling down though behind with marginal hands/draws and spiked a scoop on seventh - or I kept banging away on a semi bluff and they kept looking me up. Making trip sevens on fourth in Stud/8 - (77)47 - and getting scooped by a high-hand only straight containing the case seven hurt too. Oh, and I was trying to put together a hamster cage (don't ask) while keeping track of dead cards, which didn't help - but that's a lame excuse, I was donating my stack even if I was playing in a soundproof booth
Anyhow, structure was odd in that the first Stud rounds (60/120, 80/160) were a pretty big chunk of a 3K starting stack, so I was either going big or going broke in that hour the way I playing. Ick.
- trying to clean and stain a deck that hasn't had any maintenance done to it in billions of years sucks - I think my hand is turning redwood from all the drips and spills from the brush.
- AIPS this Thursday - limit hold 'em. Start with 25BB and at 100/200 blinds with 1500 staring stacks at the end of hour 1.. Whee - maybe I cap everything on all streets in level one and see what happens... :-)
- I can't think of anything else. Duke Dog never did this when I was there....
