3 weeks in a row in the money

Played the tourney last night. $11 buy in and won $25. So in the last 3 weeks I've finished 1st, 4th and 5th. Not bad at all :)

Played a $15 NL tournament on Pacific the other night and just missed the money. Finished 67 of about 560 and top 50 got paid. I didn't have many chips left and picked up TT in middle position. There was one limper so I pushed and he called. He had A7 and of course the ace came on the flop. I might have been able to coast into the money but there is no way I'm throwing away the 5th best hand preflop. My 72/28 favorite did not pan out though :(

We are about to launch our second site soon. Discount magazine subscriptions. It is live and ready to be used but without much fanfare on its launch. I'll announce more about it soon!

3 days going the wrong way

Bad weekend for playing poker. Saturday was crappy. Sunday was break even. Monday was crappy. The poker gods are not liking me lately. Among other crappy hands have been:

hand 1:
Me: 77
Flop: 7TT
Turn: 9
River: T

my TT777 becomes crap

Hand 2:
Me: QJ
Flop: T98
Turn: T
River: T

my straight becomes crap

Me: AA
Flop: Q74
Turn: T
River: 8

Opponent flips over 88 for rivered set

Doesn't do well for the psyche when stuff like that repeatedly happens.

Almost defended my title

The tourney was tonight and as you may know I won the tourney last week :) so tonight was spent trying to defend my title. I played pretty well until we got down to 4 when I made a stupid move and reraised all in against JJ. not incredibly stupid but he had me covered and hit his J on the flop and I was done. 4th place finish got me $34 though so it was still a good night.

haven't played a whole lot of ring games lately as I've been busy with work but I'm trying. I have a couple of promos to finish for PSO so I can get enough points for Poker Genie and more cool stuff. Hopefully my new poker table will get here soon :)

Til next time...

Coolest Keyboard Ever

They say it will cost less than a good mobile phone. Guess we'll have to see but it looks sweet.

Up up up ....bleah

I was playing in the PSO forum freeroll last night. top 30 got prizes/cash and 1st place got an entry to a 10k event at the Taj Mahal in AC in October. I played really well in the first hour got up to over 3000 chips from 1000 and had more than twice the chips of anyone else at my table. After the break I made two really brain dead plays and wasted almost 1500 chips. After that all i could do was steal blinds and I finally got called with 66 in SB by the BB who had Q7 and caught his Q. sigh. finished 61st place. On a good note, I played 1/2 on Poker Rewards and made $80 in under an hour. I won 2 big pots back to back on a full house and a straight for $60 and $30 pots :) Kept doing well after that so it ended up being a good evening.

I finally won a multi table tournament! I won the private tournament Thursday night! 26 entrants for the $10+1 buy-in and 1st prize of $130 :) Hard to believe but this is my first ever multi table win. I've won plenty of single table tournaments, but most of the multi tables I play have at least 200+ people. I finished 2nd out of 110 or so once and 4th out of 222. I believe this is my second biggest payoff as well. I felt really good about every decision I made in the hands I played. Really comfortable tonight playing more aggressive than I have been. In the last couple of months playing multi table tourneys I've really gotten a better feel for the game and am very pleased.
