So close and yet so far



All in all I atoned for my mediocre (make that pathetic) performance of the week and am now almost back to even and the FTP account is looking plusher. If you count the money I gave up so Brdweb could have his seat, I was profitable. Maybe I should just focus on playing on the weekends.

I raised off the button with JJ heads-up only to run into Waffles Aces. Expect a Waffles rant about my calling his reraise with pocket threes, running them into queens (we were three or four handed) and then hitting my set to almost stack him. But he played one hell of a game to get back into it.

I played a few hands very poorly trying to mix up the game and a few hands very very well. My last donkament two weeks ago was a third place finish so I expect a win soon.

Rebuy formats are generally not something I do and they are definitely not my comfort zone. But I think I did a good job of aquiring a stack early after about three rebuys and then adding on, making it thru the rebuy period and then kicking it up a notch.

Plus its always a great nite and interesting chat with the blogger crew.

Great job, except you lost to Waffles. Talk about putting a black eye on an otherwise stellar performance.

OH, and without getting into too many details, WE TRIED THAT ALREADY. It worked last time. Not this time.

Congrats on the nice finish!

Stacking waffles (or almost stacking waffles) is the funnest part of poker for me!
