Staycation All I Ever Wanted

I was at two Phish concerts over the weekend with Tao of Poker/Coventry Music's Dr. Pauly . Therefore, I didn't update or change any of my fantasy horses and let them ride for the weekend tourneys. Not a smart move but i wanted to go off the grid and chill for a few days with my "lil bro" who took a short trip back east to catch the shows with me and escape the madness that is the WSOP. I filled him up with NYC comfort food like: black and white cookies, and a chocolate Russian coffee cake plus cupcakes from Coccadots. We hit up PJ's BBQ and a Poster Art show that Pete "PhanArt" Mason held up in Glens Falls. Somehow we never made it to the potato knishes.

Full Tilt has had some minor issues with the fantasy game this year and on one such day I couldn't change my picks for the 8PM tourney. I've pretty much written off having a good finish in this thing. I haven't been able to play most of the freerolls I've qualified for either. But I have won another hat, which I wont receive as I never got the two from last year. P.S. Full tilt I have one so really don't need it.

However, I did catch my 4th and 5th Phish shows and I took some video's which are uploaded to You Tube under my Irongirl99 user name. I've also crossed posted one so far to Coventry Music Blog.

And short of only checking a few emails over the weekend from family and Snake5970, I was successful in going off the grid. I avoided Facebook, twitter, PokerNews and any other blogs I gravitate to every day. I bought my Sunday papers but haven't read them yet and the TV was only turned on to the Yankees/Mets game and the World Cup.

I had a great time this weekend met some cool people like TWOL's: Mountain Laura, Steve aka Unolker and Emile, aka Soozy Greenburg, plus two kewl young Southern Hippies: Chase and Tony who we were seated with for the Saturday night show. Now on to Furthur in Brooklyn next weekend.

For those readers too young to remember the title of this post is a play on the song Vacation by the GoGo's.

PEACE & Music

WSOP Fantasy -Event #14: $1,500 2-7 Draw Lowball

OOPS!! I thought the only event beginning Saturday was the $1k donkament. But the $1500 2-7 Lowball being played no limit started last night at 5PM Las Vegas time. Since I failed to select new horses the players I picked for the $1k carried over. Therefore, I have a ton of players who have probably never played a hand of deuce-to-seven as my picks;

Position Player
A Player James Akenhead
A Player Shannon Shorr
A Player Annette Obrestad is playing
A Player Lex Veldhuis is playing
A Player Vitaly Lunkin
B Player Praz Bansi
B Player Jeff Madsen
B Player Nikolay Evdakov
B Player Joe Cada
B Player Sorel Mizzi
C Player Annand (Victor) Ramdin
C Player Erica Schoenberg
C Player Tim "Tmay420" West
C Player Erick Lindgren is playing and made it to Day 2 and busted before the money
C Player Adam Levy

For some reason, I find all the No-limit hold-em low-buy events mind-numbing to follow this year. Seems like the name players chip up early, bust-out and move on to the next tourney. Not sure if this is because they just don't know when to change gears once they hit the 4th or 5th level, or get bored and its only $1-1.5k or if its the structure that causes them to play that way. Seems like they are all played turbo. I've said it before and will say it again. I'd rather play the Venetian Deep Stack series then a WSOP donkament. I'm beginning to think the low-buyin events cheapen the WSOP.

WSOP Fantasy - Events 11-12 - $1500 NL & L DONKAMENTS

2 Donkaments begin today: One of the No-limit variety and the other of the limit variety. Tomorrow the second of the $1000 super-donkaments begins. Last year there was 1 $1000 buy-in open event referred to as the "STIMULUS SPECIAL".

Here's hoping that Kirk Morrison shakes the bad ju ju and has some run good so CK and I can get our Kirk fix. Hopefully, he doesnt head back to the hills of New Zealand before the Main Event comes up. I finally cracked a top 2000 finish to earn a spot in my first FULL TILT freeroll thanks to ROOTHLUS aka Adam Levy in a donkament no less. I should also earn another spot thanks to Neil Channing's runner-up finish in the 5k shoot-out.

Waiting for a PokerNews confirmed sighting or live update.
