Change is in the Air and Fun in the WWdn

70 days till vegas

Is Linda Over at Pokerworks Like the Borg??? Assimilation is Futile.
seems like a bunch of the Good Poker Bloggers are being brought into the fold.
congrats to Joe Speaker, Change100, Amy, and Maudie all join the PokerWorks team.
Congrats and Hope it all works out for you all.

One of the Poker Bloggers that I read everyday is also moving to new diggs.
Drizz moved so check him out.


Played the Wwdn which is A tough but fun tourney with Bloggers and Assorted Will Wheaton fans. My Goal is usually to try and make the first break.
Last week I was GIGLI last week. Not Fun!
Atleast I did alittle better last night.

Had 69 people last night which has to be the high water mark for december.

All I know is my first table was tough with Stb, Mean Gene and cawtbluffin
and I was the epitome of weak tight play. getting dealt lots of middle pairs and JJ would raise get 2 callers with a KKQ flop. and me being the weak-tight that I am I would fold. But low and behold I Did make the first Break. Crazy stuff for someone who smoked enough Tea to kill Bob Marley Prior to the tourney.

All I know is I Won. I sucked out on the Poker Princess when this hand happened.

After this hand I was off and running since I now had the stack to deal with the real bully at this table who was Hoyazo who was playing awsome and up until this point had double the chips of 2nd.

It also helps when all your hands hold up and I think this is really the most important thing that happens when you win. Either most of them hold up or you have enough chips to overcome a tough beat.
