BOOOOOOOOYA!



It's late, and I'm not going to go through my HH or screenshots just yet. Look for 'em Saturday maybe. Hey, I have a life you know :)

But let's put it this way:

Down to < 1000 chips early on, to quickly become the chipleader. Give away chiplead. Give away more chips. Get all-in with 99 vs KK and get dropped to 450 chips at the final table. K9 rivers two pair to more than triple. A8 holds? Hammer wins! A3>JJ, AA is still gold, and eventually, chipleader. HU, back and forth... and WINNER!

Actually, I think played a pretty good HU game, and kept the chip lead well at the FT.

Wow. I'm such a luckbox. :)

I'm glad you won in the end, but good lord I nearly have to buy a new computer monitor.

I really would have liked to get headsup for the seat and all, but as the cards were dealt that was impossible.

Good game. I so wanted that win. Didn't look good heads-up started.

Well played.

Figured I would pimp my blog too since nobody knows who I am.

I will link you on my site if you can do the same.

Great job Astin. When you were down to <1000 chips at the final table I figured there was no way you come back. Glad I was wrong on that.

Congrats!

I managed to catch one hand (where your QQ held up against A-face and A-face).

See you in Vegas!

You're such a luckbox.

I jest... GG man! 450 chips at a final table!? Wild.

Shrike said...

CK: If you could only catch one hand, that was probably the one to see.

Would have liked to win ONE race at the final table though (even if one of my outs was gone). :(

Oh, and Astin: don't shove A3o into me anytime soon. You've used up your nine lives. ;)
