BBT in Exile, Game 1 of ???

We had 30 runners for the first BBT in Exile game.
So that was super great.

However, the freaking Caps lost in OT to go down to the Lightning 0-2, which took up most of my interest for the first half hour - and I did not play very well overall.

Never really had a stack, and when Jamyhawk opened the button with a big stack, I three-balled with fives from the SB - and when Lana reshoved from the big blind - well it's a great spot to make a move light - so I got dopey and called off over 40BB - and ran right into sixes for the super notch.

Board ran out low too, so I'm good v AK/AQ/random trash.
GG me, 23/30, I get pwned.

Anyway thanks to everyone that came out. Seemed like structure was about right - about three hours for 30 players, good without being too long

(let me know if I need to add/edit/take off a blog link as needed...)

If there's moderate interest, I will try and do this twice a month/every other week, and maybe play around with some odd structures and different games just to keep things interesting and sustain a little bit of blogger community through what looks to be a looooooong Dark Age of online poker.

I know NumbBono's working on some things, Grump's still got a private game, so does the PokerSlut series... there are ways to make this happen for the long term...

Oh, and yeah, the last part of the game got overshadowed by events.

It's important. I hate to soft pedal it, because I know it's so meaningful to a lot of people - but it would have been so much more important 7-8 years ago.

But there still are plenty of evildoers out there.
Smoking Osama doesn't make them all go away.
Channel Winston Wolfe - let's not go celebrating too soon yet.

But it is a good thing.

I would suggest keeping the Stars game NLHE.. and on the off weeks make the off games maybe... something like that.. I know I love the PLO and HORSE and stuff like that but the turnouts are never as good..

Actually, the quick idea off the top of my head was to play the first Sunday of the month as NLHE and the other Sunday as something randomly different. Trying to play more than that would probably be pushing it.

But that can change.

Where were you?

Thanks for hosting, Mike. It was a lot of fun and, as I think NYRambler said, the toughest play money tourney ever.

I look forward to the next one. I am game for any variation you want to try. After all, it's just play money.

No game this weekend?

Heffmike said...

No, figured it would be asking a lot for a weekly game. Every other week - we'll have something together for next Sunday.
