My cousin came round yesterday for a visit and we hit the virtual tables at 'Stars for some pokery fun.We managed to win a $6 turbo and come 3rd in the other 18 player one we played.
Dinner called, and afterwards I logged on for this weeks Britbloggerment tourney and was delighted to see we had a record 27 runners.As usual, most of my hands are a blur, although I do recall laying down AJ to Cadmunkeys push with QQ and being dismayed by the Ace that fell!
Not long later I laid down 55, and although initially pleased to see I was dominated by 66,I would have hit a 5 on the turn.I do wonder if I don't take enough chances sometimes in these games but I suppose the aim is to get your money in ahead ( or be first in the pot betting) and I think I did that most of the time.Great to see Bluescouse back defending his title with his usual brand of aggressive "put you to the test" poker.
When we were down to the final 3 I won a nice hand with AK v Viktors QK before finally crashing out 3rd when my nines couldn't hold up v Viktors AK.Two aces on the flop sealed the deal and it didn't take Viktor long to wrap it up against Luckbox.No victory for England again this week (!!) and congrats to French man of mystery ,Viktor73,who took it down.Quote of the week may come from the winner who ,moments after taking down a blogger tourney,asked "What's a blog?".
Great stuff and I hope he returns to defend his crown next week.
Thanks to all who turned up to play and congrats to Luckbox on a fine performance in coming 2nd and hats off once again to Viktor the victor!
I watched Mikesaban make the money in the Stars Million before hitting a $50nl 6 max table and leaving with a small profit.
I have another Old School post ( 1988 this time)almost ready and ( thanks to my cousin) have an idea brewing for a post on whether one of Amarillo Slims stories was actually fabricated.
Thanks for reading.Back soon...
