Top 3 finish!

Played in a $10 No Limit Texas Holdem Poker tournament at Full Tilt Poker yesterday and ended up taking down third place!

The amazing thing was, that they paid 18 places, and I just BARELY got in to the money in the first place, and with 15 left was down to two BB's!

After a couple of successful ALL IN moves, I was up to around 5K, and then hit a rush of cards to boost me up to 25K and in the top 4. I was able to hold on to that position and get into the top three, and actually take over the chip lead at one point.

Unfortunately, cards went a bit cold on me, and I got knocked out third, but considering where I was to get to the money, I was pretty happy with that finish!

Cashed in online Tourney

I gave in to the bug, and played in a $10 No Limit Texas Holdem Poker tournament yesterday. There were 253 players, and I ended up coming in 18th, so I cashed!

I played pretty well, and would have come in a bit higher except for, what I would consider a 'glitch' in the Full Tilt Poker software.

I had just gone through BB and SB, when two hands later, I was moved, in balancing the tables. I was move INTO the BB again! So I have to eat up BB and SB again.... two fucking hands later, I am moved AGAIN INTO THE BB!

In 9 Hands, I am BB three times and SB three times! That is quite a hit to your stack....

Played some Live poker...

Saturday night, we had some people over, and actually played some live Texas Holdem Poker! It was good to play some live poker for a change!

There were only 7 of us playing, and we only played for $5, but we managed to get a couple games in, and there was no buffonery.....

I had forgotten how much fun it was to just PLAY Texas Holdem, to kid around, talk some shit, and just have some fun!

... ya, I got sucked out on each game! LOL Some things do NOT change!

Quite a long break...

I have taken a bit of a long break from both playing and reporting on texas holdem poker, or any other form of online poker. I was not doing things that i wanted, and figured getting away from the game for a bit would help me clear my head and get some perspective. Every now and then, we ALL need to clear our head and get some new energy and perspective on things.

I'll be back playing soon, I know that. The game never lets me leave it for very long! ;-)
