I winz PLO8 PokerSlut tourney - only 4 players though. Cmon, there's at least 20+ people in the home game group.
Maybe the Stars switch, the new HomeGame setup, and dropping the buy-in down to $1.10 makes a difference. I'd like to see the series weather the turbulence and build back up. But yay $3 profit nevertheless.
Donk Island was only a turbo, not a pushfest. Which is a shame, because coolers, setups, and binked river cards were outFUCKINGstanding. I can only imagine it would have been even sillier with 300 chip stacks.
So I just watched TBA bink every pot against everyone else, but I kept winning pots off of him, including calling him down with 5th pair FTW.
Then I tried to flip with BuddyDank with AK, which was a bad idea, since he made quads. He's good at that, it seems. And then, I punted a stack with this:

Honestly, I should fold this with three allins in front of me, even with 10BB.
But, it's a turbo and I said fuck it.
Stupid. I'm running into KK/AA here every freaking time.
For a second there I though I could fourflush FTW until I saw Lightning's Ac.
14/20. I've not been running well here lately.
But nice for a Survivor series tourney to last under an hour one time.
Somewhat surprising that there was a 3-3 voting tie with SmBoatDrinks and BrainMc, so there will be a HU match Monday night to bounce the next Survivor.
Afterwards I sat around in a $5 PLO8 blogger table for a little bit, made some minor coin while watching the end of the NCAA's.
Go Richmond/VCU. Potentially most hilarious Elite Eight matchup ever.
Outside of Mason's vivisection by OSU, and Hampton being the #16 sacrifice to Duke, Commonwealth teams represented nicely...
I go back to the old job tomorrow. Should be interesting...
