Eighth is Enough


I think I played some pretty great poker tonight. I stayed patient even while riding the shortstack and made good decisions. I only sucked out once (AJ flopped a straight and rivered a flush against AK) and in the end I got my money in with the best hand. There's only one call that troubles me, but the analysis will have to wait until tomorrow. 8 straight hours of poker and my back is killing me.

Uber-props to my sweaters: JoeSpeaker, Easycure, Alan, April and Chad.

Good thing I have a bag of blueberry kush to ease the pain and get me to sleep. After all, it's only a scant 12 hours before the craaaazy last minute turbo super to the Full Tilt $40K.

Of course I'd have liked to have gone further tonight, but for right now, it's enough. After all, one week ago I was playing on the last $15 in my Full Tilt account. Now it's pumped over a grand.

I needed that.

AWESOME, Change, great work! I've never come anywhere near the final table in the 17k, although I did just make my first final table in a ftp MTT myself this weekend. Here's hoping I can duplicate your performance soon in this thing, very impressive!

Just think, if I had managed to make that same final table, you'd have been able to double up.

Nice finish.
