Sunday Sunday Sunday

The long story is here, cliffs below:


- Open the Stars main poker lobby, then click on the Home Games tab
- Click the 'Join a Poker Club' button
- Enter my Club ID number: 415619
- Enter my Invitation Code: wolverines

You have to be registered to play.

So far we got two tables easy: I think we can double that easily by Sunday.

************

The home office is pleased that the Washington Capitals finally managed to win a series without going seven games - it would be nice to see this team again..



but whatever next round, 12 more wins please thank you.

I will have to ruminate some more on non-poker/hockey things when I have a moment.

Probably some profound observation on the Internet's power to isolate and connect.
Or a review of the clusterfuck that is Glee Season 2.

It's a tossup.

Let's all freaking play cards one time.....

"Remember, Red. Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies. "

OK, here's what I figure.

What most of you really miss after Black Friday is sitting down and playing cards with each other.

Some of us played for fun, some for side money, some for an actual living... That's the big uberpicture, and it's being well covered in many, many places...

The smaller, Blogger Tourney picture - is that with all the tourneys people hosted over the years -

the WWdN,
the Mookie/Dank,
the MATH,
the Skillz game,
Riverchasers,
PokerSlut,
AIPS,
Friday Donkaments,
WPBTs,
BBTs,
VeryJosie,
Survivor Island, yadayadayada
(and sorry if I missed something!)

People were essentially playing for pocket change and entertainment.

It wasn't really about the money. It was about the play, the competition and the win.

While you can recreate a lot about online poker by going to play live, what you can't recreate is bringing everyone together from across the country in one virtual place at the drop of a hat.

So, just because the DoJ stopped everyone in the U.S. for doing it for money - doesn't mean you have to stop playing period.

I'm setting up a Home Game for play money on PokerStars.
I assume most of Blogger Nation has a Stars account.
You can still get a .net one if you don't.

There will be a tourney on Sunday night, May 1, at 9:30ET.

There is NO LEGAL DANGER for doing this.
No money is at stake.
Come out and play, or don't.
But I think by May, people will want to push some chips around and just see what's up with everyone else.

2000 chips/10 minute levels with standard Stars setup, so it'll be a decent structure without taking all night.

Let's just play some cards and have a few hours of fun.
There might be 3 players, there might be 30.

If it works out OK, maybe there will be some occasional tourneys that are something else besides unlimited hold them on Sundays. That's probably the best time of the week to do something like this, with no football/Sunday majors/like you're really watching Brothers & Sisters anyway you momo...

If not - we'll that's OK too.

I know it's hard to sit there and play for a couple hours with nothing but pride at stake.

I just figured that it's silly to just throw in the towel when there is an avenue for everyone to get together and play. While I doubt anything about online poker will be the same whenever it's legal for Americans to play for real $$ again, this is what we have right now.

It's a small gesture of civil disobedience. Club is named BBT in Exile.

Weekend and more De-Throning...

Since there's nothing better to talk about at the moment, let's revisit our last little bit of glory - the De-Throning of VeryJosie, Part the Second!

Game 2

VJ gets out to a small lead early - then she opens 3x to 60, I flat with T8o.
Flop 997, two hearts, I check/call 80.
Turn Td, now two diamonds as well, I check/call 180.
River 4d, I check/tank call 300, see Ah5c, I win and take a 2-1 chip lead.

veryjosie: i am soooo on tilt
veryjosie raises to 80
heffmike: obv/
heffmike folds
Uncalled bet of 60 returned to veryjosie
veryjosie: lol
veryjosie shows [7c 2d] Seven Two high

She does know how to fill up, though

Seat 1: veryjosie (735)
Seat 2: heffmike (2,265)
heffmike posts the small blind of 15
veryjosie posts the big blind of 30
The button is in seat #2
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to heffmike [8d Ad]
heffmike raises to 80

veryjosie bets 655, and is all in
heffmike has 15 seconds left to act
heffmike: I should call you with Ace high, but no easy chips.
heffmike folds
Uncalled bet of 655 returned to veryjosie
veryjosie shows [7h 9d] a full house, Sevens full of Nines
veryjosie wins the pot (160)

A little later, I open/limp 5s3s for 40 with a 3-1 chip lead. VJ raises to 120, I call.
Flop 432r, she jams 640 into a 240 pot. Even if she has an overpair, I have a lot of outs.
Bet sizing screams Ax more than a second-level bet for value.

I call, see AKo, I hold and win, and I'm up 2-0.
Took about twice as long as game 1, but I felt in control both times and was just riding the wave.

Game 3 was a hell of a lot more work and lasted over 30 minutes.

First hand, I limp the button, VJ raises, I fold, she shows AA.

Second hand, VJ raises her button, I fold, she shows 66.

Third hand, the one time I make a move all night:
I raise AJo to 50, she calls.
Flop Q66, two clubs, she donks 60 and I call.
Turn Ks, she checks, I check behind.
River 5c, completing the flush, she bets 60, I raise to 200, she calls with Qd2d and PWNS.

Fourth hand, VJ completes, I check A5o.
Flop AT5 with a heart draw, I bet 60, she calls.
Turn Jc, I bet 80 and she calls again,
River 9c for a backdoor flush, I check/call 80 and beat her QQ no club.

VJ turns on her boat switch later. She makes them twice and notches me, once when I have an underboat and the other with top pair - and I'm down almost 3-1 pretty quickly. I grind it back to even, then start falling behind again when I gambool silly...

VJ opens 3x to 150, I repop to 450 with KTo, VJ jams 1745 and obviously covers.
I figure I've got a 1/3 of the stack in already and with a 2-0 lead, it's gambool time.
Flop KT8.
Turn Ace
River blank. Now I'm up 5-1.

Of course it's not that simple.
Twice I get it in pre with overcards vs. her small pocket pairs and lose flips, but I still maintain a small chip lead until we get it in for the last time.

I openlimp to 60 with A8, VJ repops to 240, I decide to jam,and VJ tank calls off with 55.
I flop an Ace and fade the the two outer FTW.

***********

Looking back, man I was playing passive/trappy on purpose.

Limping a lot of buttons, keeping pots fairly small preflop, flatting preflop raises with a wide-ass range - then trying to play more postflop...

It wasn't really by design - well, not entirely.

But I do have a pretty good bead on VJ's play, recognized some tendencies over time... and adjusted what I normally do accordingly.

Anyhow, we were going to try another best-of-five sometime this week... but unless there's some other avenue for HU SnGs for free on the interwebz... so much for that.

***********

I did decide to have a last call/one more session Friday before all the doors slammed shut - burned up all my FTP points for $26 tokens (and a deck of cards, whee!) and jumped in a bunch of 90-mans and Rush MTTs. I ran into overpairs a couple of times - but I did manage to final table the last tourney I'll probably ever get to play on FTP, the ol' reliable 90-man $24+2.

I do my usual silly shit:

I jam A7s into an openlimped 44, board runs T85T8 and I counterfeit on the river.
I jam KTs into the same guy openlimping A2s, board runs J95AQ and I spike the river again.
I jam QTs into 22 and AK, board runs AJ5K5 - and I'm a genius again.
On the final table bubble I call off to a 10BB shove with ATs and hold vs. KQo

I hit the FT 3rd in chips with 20BB.
Nothing happens until we're five-handed, I shove 8BB with K8, get called by A7 and make trip eights.
I'm jamming a lot, so when the button opens four handed, I have an easy 25BB reshove with AKs - he tank calls with AQo and suddenly I've got the chip lead with a little under half the chips in play.

So of course I finally quit hitting everything.
KT vs. a shorty KJ.
99 vs. AQ
I jams 15BB BvB with A2 and run into A7 - and that's that.

4th/90 for $190 more I won't see until the DoJ figures out what it wants to do...

Microcosm of the overall run online run for me.

I only get deep when I spew and donk around early and hit - but I play really well with shallow stacks near bubbles - and naturally, when I'm close enough to get the W that's when I quit spiking everything and miss the big pay bumps.

So it's fitting I close this poker chapter this way - consistently profitable, but never making a really big score.

************

This blog won't go dark - although there will be less to talk about obviously, there still are some loose ends...

- Caps playoff run, of course... 2 down, 14 to go...

- Hey, I still need a new job - the old one is extended until the end of June, but the half-life is rapidly fading on it.

- Maybe some live play to talk about - although I was going to do it out of the online roll, so we'll see how that will work out in the near future...

Regardless of what happens with the future of online poker - the sad thing is, good luck finding a low or mid-stakes live game that's NOT unlimited hold them - or finding a quick one-table SnG - or playing a friendly blogger game like smboatdrink's 10-game tourney.

All those type of things are going by the boards without some kind of virtual poker room to support it.

Maybe if something was organized as a free home game on one of the sites for teh bloggerz - but somehow I don't think that would fly longterm - it's not really poker if there's not money at stake, even if it's only a five spot.

Just keep up with the smart bloggers and posters out there, and we'll all see what transpires...

Iike a dinosaur watching the asteroid hit.


Could be worse, I suppose.

I don't make a living at this, and I have mobney stuck on the sites rather than in payment processor limbo.

However, I would have liked to have an offline roll - I've got enough online poker-only mobney to play indefinitely live, but that's what I get for being slack in 2011 and not pulling it off sooner. Who knows when/if it'll ever be freed up or not.

I guess this means I'm not playing the Ante Up PLO tourney tomorrow.

At least I'll have some more free time now.

EDIT: just read this and sit tight. Nothing else to do at the moment. Nothing else you can do.

The De-Throning, Part The First:

So VeryJosie and I are playing 1500 starting stacks, starting at 10/20.

Very first hand, I limp the suited Grump (4s2s) on the button, VJ raises to 80, I call.
Flop A82 with two clubs, she donks 1/2 pot, I call.
Turn another deuce. She checks, I bet 240 into the 320 pot, she folds, I show.

We're off and running now.

VJ opens 3x to 60, I flat with das Hämmerchen (72o)
Flop 743 with club draw, I check/call 80.
Turn 8, it checks through.
River 2, I donk 1/2 pot, she folds what she says is AKs, I show.

So I'm playing fairly wide open and free, obviously.

VJ opens 3x to 60 again, I repop to 225 with AQo, she folds.

I'm up 1800 to 1200 when she opens her button again 3x to 60.
I repop again to 225, this time with TT.
She types grrrr in the chat and flats.
I don't really like that. Probably walking into a big hand.

Flop T53 with a spade draw. I can like that.

I check, she bets 120 into the 450 pot - sketchy, like it's meant to induce.
I can either jam or just reraise - trying to figure out what gets the rest in better.
I reraise to 450. VJ tank jams for 975 total, and I hold vs. her KK no spade for the 1-0 lead.
Spade draw with the 2s got there on the river, so my other likely semibluffs would've hit as well.

Only 20 hands, one level of play.
Six minutes, Doug E. Fresh, you're on.

Of course, I basically coolered VJ with a two outer to win Game 1.
If the flop comes all undercards, I certainly double her up.
I probably get away on a rainbow flop with a couple of overcards.

But that's poker. 60BB on the flop with an overpair should be good more often than not HU.

Heff 1, VJ 0.

Sweep the leg, and everything else of Joe C's

Ah, what a glorious night.

New Office and Parks and Rec episodes. Caps won Game 1 Wednesday night.

And then I get the email I was waiting for.

VeryJosie wants to go best-of-5 in a HU series.
I offered the challenge after her post about pwning Jordan earlier Thursday.
Woot.

Game 1- Heff
Game 2- Heff
Game 3- Heff.

Games 4 and 5, not necessary....

SWEEP!

I'll post some hands over the next five days - because VJ owes me a link every day, bitches.

So she's not a Terminator after all.

The rest of you guys can thank me now for revealing the wizard behind the curtain.

To be fair, she played well. Definitely a dangerous HU player.

But I played and hit better. Dangerous combination. That'll happen.

Winz at Grumps....

So there was a very late email about a quickie $3.30 Stars home game Grump was putting together - since I was watching the baby while all sorts of other stuff was going on around the house on a Friday night - sure, why not?

A good mix of nine players, including cardgrrl, Goat, Captain, and Boat - which meant the prize pool was winner-take-all for the top 10% - and that happened to be me. I got HU with Grump down 2-1 and hit enough hands and boards to grind out a solid W.

I hit so many 40/60 hands with live cards it wasn't even funny.

***

Rereading all the recap Donkey Island posts, including Jamyhawk's Hoy-length review... It pains me to say this, but Hoy's analysis is the most spot on -

"Josie undeniably played a great game, but this shit was also handed to her. Absolutely handed to her. I mean, not literally handed to her. But the Donkeys had Josie and the entire Fish team dead to rights, and then they fucked it up. They made a terrible decision like four straight weeks, and just stood there and let Josie's rise to power be consummated."

I'm still not sure why Jamy and Jordan decided to reach out for a cross alliance to VJ in the first place - WHEN SHE NEEDED THE HELP A LOT MORE THAN THEY DID - and then decided to tell us Donkeys about it to boot. Did you think we were just going to let that happen, instead of making the logical connections and start to cut you off pre-emptively?

To fill in some knowledge gaps for the record beyond this post:

- I had already decided to be Goat's humble servant from the get-go, way before anyone else even asked, for a lot of reasons. You have to trust someone - I decided it was him. Maybe he was going to screw me in the end - it's certainly possible, although I'm pretty sure we had a solid working relationship. Everyone else I talked to, I basically told them what I thought they needed to know.

I didn't really have a Plan B, and after the Donkeys got out to a big advantage in team play, I didn't bother to find one. I never watched Survivor and don't have patience for all this alliance building and breaking everyone else loves. I picked a horse and strategy and was going to ride it into the ground - way too simple, I know.

- In retrospect, we should have realized that Jordan would have reacted a lot better to clipping Jamy than the other way around. We had to stop this cross-team alliance momentum while we could, figured Jordan was a more dangerous organizer and plotter - and it looks like we came pretty close to pulling it off. But, I think Jordan would have realized the overall danger of working with VJ and the Fish and figured out another way to make things happen within the team of Donkeys.
Instead, Jamy basically gave VJ free reign to use him to flip the power structure to the Fish and take us all out. She's too nice to say so, but there's really no way she wins anything in Survivor without that gift.

- Once Goat got voted off, it was pretty obvious I was a dead man walking b/c I really had nothing to offer to VJ (she already had her people lined up) and I was not about to listen to anything Jamy had to say (b/c there was no way I was going to trust his decision making).

Still, it was strange because the night Jamy got voted off, because both VJ and Jamy were IMing me at the same time asking for my vote. Of course I amused myself stringing them both along until it was obvious my vote didn't matter - but the fact that VJ worked so hard to get my vote when she had to know that she really didn't need it - told me she wasn't missing any angles in this competition.

So it was just a matter of time - by then my only hope was to manufacture a tie vote and get to play my way on or off the island - but I couldn't manage that. Still fun, though. You got to learn a lot about other people's thought process, and I got tighter with some blogger players as a result. Plus, I spewed back close to $200 with all the Mookie bounties I offered during the series, so at least I made it rain for everyone else and paid it forward.

If I do it again, maybe I'll try to actually "play" the Survivor game - but to be honest I'd probably just duck my head, try to winz as much as I can, and finish in the middle of the pack again.

Oh and to complete a lingering question from the other night - the Heff is..

*half-Okinawan (hello Miyagi-san! - Mom grew up on the island. Not really Japanese, Okinawans have an odd relationship with their bigger Northern neighbor that annexed them way back in the 19th century.)

*half-Eastern European Slav (Austrian, I think, or maybe further east than that. Pop's family came over around 1900 - very Eastern Orthodox, so they know about pierogis, kolackies, Easter bread and what not. Pop grew up a few clicks from Apalachin in a heavily Italian town and remembers that infamous 1957 mob raid.)

So that's that. Half grinder bee, half crasian gambool. Figures.

Spew times two. Boo (hey, that rhymes!)

So let's see, that was a night of running into the nits... POOF!

Spew around in the VeryJosie for a half hour until I hit AQs in back to back hands.

Texar opens 2.5BB in the cutoff, I jam 20BB, he snaps with AKs.
ATT flop, 6 turn, Q river. Yeah, I'm really good.

Next hand, BamBam opens for pot, I reraise in position to 960, he flats.
Flop A65 with a diamond draw...

BamBamCan checks
heffmike bets 2,140, and is all in
BamBamCan: folding slick heff
BamBamCan folds
Uncalled bet of 2,140 returned to heffmike
heffmike wins the pot (2,040)

So apparently I dodge a bullet twice. Unreal.

So when this happens... well, poker>karma>instant, you know.

EP limper for 40, texar raises 3x to 240 from the SB, I threeball with AKs to 975, limper folds, texar FLATS.
Flop QT6r, texar jams for LESS THAN POT, I snap, I see AJs.
running hearts for the nut flush, I loser... :-(

and then of course, I get slowrolled by JOELPOKERGOD when I openshove 13BB from the cutoff with KK and he does his standard tank douche move with a big covering stack...

Dealer: heffmike raises to 1,360, and is all in
Dealer: wolfshead folds
Dealer: 1racerx folds
JOELPOKERGOD: gl mike
JOELPOKERGOD: think im calling for the 2$
JOELPOKERGOD has 15 seconds left to act
JOELPOKERGOD calls 1,260
Dealer: heffmike shows [Kh Kc]
Dealer: JOELPOKERGOD shows [Ad 7d]


Dealer: The flop is [Th Jd Kd]
Dealer: The turn is [4d]
Dealer: The river is [As]
Dealer: heffmike shows three of a kind, Kings
Dealer: JOELPOKERGOD shows a flush, Ace high

JOELPOKERGOD: bounty game is why i called sir
heffmike (Observer): whatever. you were calling anyway don't try to make it out like that.
heffmike (Observer): but nice slowroll.
JOELPOKERGOD: i dint slow roll did i?
JOELPOKERGOD: i acutally have an once of respect for mike
heffmike (Observer): uh, you always slowroll people. It's what you do. no surprise.
JOELPOKERGOD: i called in 3 secs
JOELPOKERGOD: and told u i was calling

So anyway, 12/17. Karma's a bitch during the long run.
Given I burned up two lives early to survive, it all balanced out...

Meanwhile in the Dank, I got ate up in another NIT spot.
Although honestly, I probably wouldn't bet/fold here either.
However, in real life, I can beat an overpair here every time, or at worst have a 50/50 to get there.

Earlier villain check/called the nizzles HU on the turn to me BvB, so I was really certain my Ace was a clean out, oddly enough.

OK, I'm a moron. Seriously.

Anyway, who cares, I got PWNED again, 19/20.
Basically a waste of $22 and 90 minutes.

cruising.

Played SmBoatDrinks 10-game tourney last night.
I miss the old Skillz Series, at least this fills the gap...

Ran OK, went runner runner on VJ in NLHE as a short stack after I called off with no pair/no kicker to stay alive early on.
People obviously forgot I play O8 like it's my job, that's where I got most of my chips.

Again, I build up a big ass stack as we get to HU play, a nice 3-1 chip lead.
And I lost to wolfshead. 2/9.

Went through five rotations, so we played for like 30 minutes.
I probably let up too easy in Stud/8 and didn't force the action enough - and just got pummeled in 2-7 TD.

To be honest, I'm a lot torked right now.

Bottom line, I should not be losing a mixed game HU with that much of a chip lead, period.
I don't care how high the blinds are or who I'm playing.

But, at least I cashed in a blogger game on FTP for the first time in a month, so that's nice.

Although, if I'm this annoyed, I obviously don't do this for the mobneys.

Wednesday is VJ/Dank time? Fun. Maybe BBT6 info will be revealed.
Too many hints in the air for the details not to drop soon.

Oh, one last game for the day.
Questions about my background came up in chat last night.

Yeah, I'm a half and half mongrel. Guesses on the halves in the comments, please!

The wife is Irish/Italian, btw. Explains the red hair and hot temper....

Survivor: Donkey Poker Round 15 - Finale

Why dime rebuys are LOL - I win the first hand calling a shove with J4 v. 84 and doubled thru.
I keep doubling with QJs, A6o, and QQ, all in the first orbit, and get up to 23K just like that. So once you've got that kind of stack, you really don't want to punt it against other big stacks - you'd rather just keep pecking away at the double rebuys 2K at a time. But no, that's not how a dime rebuy works, obviously... :-)

I basically lose it all getting it in good in multiway pots with AT, AK, and JJ, the last in a nine way allin.. Meanwhile I keep folding good stuff (for rebuys) like A6s and A9o against multiple shoves like a dummy and watch the nizzles get made without me.

So I actually did start rebuying in Level 3 after going busto and played the way I'm supposed to play a rebuy.

Of course, after the break I actually ended up winning big four way allins with JJ and KK and made it back to 30K to be 3/18 once the rebuy period ended. But when BrainMC has 130K - well, who cares about my stack.

I only was in for 70 cents, though, so it wasn't that bad. But this sure was a tourney that could have used the AlCan'tHang free mobneys from FTP - which dried up as soon as he got voted off and the Sunday tournaments started changing formats.. :-(

Later I got coolered with the second nut flush vs the nuts and should have resisted raising Muhctim's donkbet for pot on the river and saved 5K in chips. It's hard to stop going for thin value when you have 400BB behind.

Nothing good really happened to me after that. Numb decided to keep flatting me and screwing around with a big stack in spots where even if I'm good I'm ridiculously vulnerable. I spiraled down pretty quickly to 10K at 150/300, I restole KJ into JJ BvB for 25 BB like a momo, basically played like shit and bounced 14/18.

Which is a stupid, lame way to be done with the Survivor series - but for under a dollar buyin and less than $20 for first, I did not want to fuck around all night at this. I still played pretty bad regardless. Plus I owe at least $10 in a Brain vs. the field bet I made at the second break to jamyhawk and gpjacobs. I run horrid at prop bets.

Oh, yeah, so Boat won the last longer for 40% and VJ wins voting for the other 60% of the prize pool, almost $200. That seems about right...

I did remember to play PokerSlut and finished 2/7 in the razz tourney. I had a ton of chips and then got pwned HU by Gadzooks. I played way too loose and she kept catching every hand when I decided to look her up. So I got steamrolled as bad as you can get in HU Razz.

After all of that, I got my ass handed to me for a while in SnGs- bubbled 2-3 in a row- but then finally broke through with a 1st/3rd/3rd in a quick PLO8 set for +$150. So maybe I am finally breaking the seal on a shitty March and will enjoy April a lot more.
