Well, decided to jump into BamBam's tournament while waiting on my roto draft and try my luck - and that was kind of ghey. Only two hands worth looking at...
eight-handed at 20/40, I've got the starting 1500 stack.
veryjosie openlimps UTG+1, Yor66 calls, I raise to 275 from the button with AKo, all fold around, Yor66 jams 700 total, I snapcall.
Yor66 managed to call down in position with AJ on a KJx flop vs. Lightning36 and lose 1/3rd of his stack, then dribbled the rest down in three orbits, so I wasn't giving him much credit - I actually overraised to induce a jam. Sure enough, he shoves KQo, but there's the three-outer Queen on the flop.
Not the best endorsement for Pokerwit, natch.
So three hands later, I open UTG+2 for 120 with 44 and a 800-chip stack, veryjosie jams 1250 from the button - and I would normally snap fold, but hey, I have a roto draft in 20 minutes, it's a blogger tourney, maybe she's light (riiiight!) - so I tank call pretty light myself, see AQs (probably the bottom of her jamming range) and lose the flip to finish 29/31.
So yeah, I guess that's better than finishing second after 2-3 hours of play, if you look on the bright side.
In draft news I'm in the same league I was in last year - where I finished second loser, 9/10.
I'm horribly bad at roto football - while I can pretty much guarantee a podium finish in roto baseball no matter how I draft, I can't build a football team to save my life, and I have an irrational hate/fear of every running back in the NFL. Every year I don't really prep at all and immediately puke looking at my squad as soon as the draft is over - fifth pick in a twelve-team league, by the way.
Hello second division. You can build a strong roto baseball team out of B-level talent and waiver pickups over a six-month season, but not a football team... :-(
Play Spewday and the VeryJosie this week - I have a very special sheep post coming soon.
