Not a Bad Kick-Off

EDIT: Oops - I apparently can't read 24-hour time. I'm getting in at 10:30 tonight. Sweet, bowling should still be going on by then.

Turned out I made the Mookie last night after all. Which is good since I missed The Hoy. Even better? I final tabled that baby for the first time since I won it. I went out in 8th when my JJ ran into Doogman's QQ. The guy had been pushing like mad, so I put out a committing-but-weak-looking bet to get the re-raise. It happened, I insta-called and swore. To drive home the point, he spiked the 3rd Q on the river. That was SUPPOSED to be a Jack. With all the huge suckouts last night, it figures I don't get mine. :)

Worst luck I saw was Bayne_s (I think). Calls an all-in with AK to meet TT. T on the flop seals it. The very next hand, and VERY short-stacked, he goes all-in with Rockets to meet... TT, with a T on the TURN. AK and AA in consecutive hands busted by a set of tens. Wow.

Regardless, I got some much-needed points to move me into 12th place on the BBT, which puts me back in striking distance of the top 10, but it will be a fight to get into the top 5 again.

I have to give huge props to BuddyDank and InstantTragedy for a great live broadcast. Even if IT didn't show up until half the players were gone. Generally great song choices (I'm so glad my feed droppen when Hanson came on), and some of the funny at the end. For the record though - I don't have Parkinson's, it was a comment on how to get ahead in slot tournaments.

According to my handy-dandy countdown clock, I have just over 7 hours until take-off, which means I have 12 hours until I look at all that pretty neon. Damn but I'm looking forward to this.

Btw, do you know Hoy's real name? I want to track how he's doing in the 6max event.

M. Barrett Sandler. He posted on Card Squad when it existed, so his name isn't a secret anymore :).

Congrats on the final table at the Mook. Thanks for tuning in and the props.
In the future I'll try to steer clear of Hanson.

I soooooo jealous. Have fun, and remember to manage that BR.
