Redemption- I Can Sleep Well Tonite

I'm at the final table of the Poker.com Blogger Poker Tour. Ive made the cash and played my usual disciplined game with a few surprises that I've learned. My reads have been dead on. I put last years tour champ on a weaker kicker and pretty much stacked him. It was my trouble hand of last evening too that won the pot KT.

I was up as high as #2 during the mid part of the tourney but AK ran into pocket 77's that hit a set and I miffed the whole board. I recovered nicely and made a gutsy call with K9h against the big stack who had 22 and I flushed him. Once I built my stack, I never dropped out of the top ten.

Down to 8 right now. We are playing for an eventual seat in the Aussie Millions. I'm off to a great start.

I just made another gutsy call against a bigger stack with 44. He had Trent's famed hand of 33. I hit a set WOO HOO. Im in 5th. Aces just got cracked by the big stacks A8c which caught the flush sending Hacksaw to the rail. And then there were 7. Just folded the gay waiter. I have 3x the short stacks chips. But have dropped to 6th. The #2 stack in the SB just raised my BB I have 55. I push not making the fatal error of last week. My 55 holds against Q7h Back into #2.

I just called an all-in with my trademark 99 another push all-in and its 3-way: AA vs AJ vs 99. I hit a set, knock out the AJD and stack the chip leader who is now on TILT. I am now in the lead . The dude whose AA I cracked just pushed with A9 I call with KQ. Ace high is good enough to take the pot and I lose a stack back into #2. The new chip leader announces he is off TILT!!

Down to three, I'm in 3rd by just a tad but 2nd and 3rd are both short to the chipleader. All-in with AJd no callers. I push again with KT against the big stack he flips QQ ouch. Same as Vegas.. Im out but $75 profit and Aussie Millions points. Results posted below.

I missed all of last seasons tourneys as did my buddy JBaldwin. I Im'd Jeff today to remind him. Taking a break from diaper duty and his nursing studies he was out to a good start and ran into the donkeys. Hes gonna out him/them on his blog!!

I used to have an issue with poker.com. It used to lag and be so slow and made me want to stick hot pokers in my eyes. I actually said that in a forum post. What an improvement in a year and I must give Poker.com props for coming thru for the WSOP seat winners from Check n Raise poker. They made about ten potentially disappointed poker players very happy.
