waited a few days on these since these hurt a little bit when I got taken out in both. In the skillz game it was the story of basically running into things a tiny bit better then me on 7th street. It could of been earlier but who knows with the card switching which makes no sense to me. But out early in this and no points.

Mookie basically first hand was my high point with chips as I hit my flush and had an open ended straight draw to a persons set. The hand that took me out I knew the person I was playing vs didnt have an ace on a board of ace queen 6 I hold king queen. My king hits on the river but it also gives me a flush and thats what busts me. Just bad timing on that but again no points or cash in mookie but that im used to lol.

Sunday is the last day of the BBT and my last chance to win a tourney and get a seat which I would love to get. Like some people know I am going to vegas June 10-14 so if I do get lucky enough and win a 2k seat or more I would use it for a wsop event. Im really considering playing in either the 1500 no limit tourney on the 11th event 24 if people are looking for that or 1500 limit tourney on the 12th event 26. I hope that I get into the top 20 in points also since right now im #20. I hope to see everyone sunday.

Mookie/Brit Blogger

Well im writing after the brit blogger tourney about these two. I did make points in both of these which is good but only 1 cash. With the Mookie I was playing a bit more loose then I normally do and it seemed to be working for the most part. Got a good double up when I had 10's vs 8's hold for me. Basically went out on a coinflip after I hit my over he hit his set.

Brit Blogger I thought I was finally going to break through and win a blogger tourney since I was on the end of hitting the 2 and 3 outers. I got 3rd once again which is kinda my high point in these since this is my 5th third place in this BBT. I was facing kat and jo so I was basically the odd person out so I was the bad guy lol. The hand that took me out was vs kat when she heald ace 2 of crubs and I had ace 4 of hearts and she hits a set of 2's to take me out in 3rd. Jo won the tourney so gratz to her.

With these 2 in the points I get into the top 20 so hopefully I stay there since the 25k of ftp would be nice so I can get either another jersey or just stockpile them up. Tomorrow night is the last PPI of the BBT so I hope to see everyone there.

I should just really question is it the fact im really really unlucky, like waffles, or is full tilt rigged. Probably both, but someone give me a break on one end because its getting frustrating.

Well today was a weird day. I was planning on going to the mets game with my brother since we wanted to see Santana vs Lowe. We were looking into the tickets online and saw a ton of seats still on sale so we figured we can buy them at the stadium since for the 15 dollar seats they had a 7.50 service charge which is pretty stupid. We get to the window the guy says the cheapest he has are 100 dollars. Keep in mind this was about 30 mins after we left the house with the computer saying 15 were on sale and in a big amount. We werent happy to see when we got back to his apartment that there was a giant section of seats that no one ever sat in. I find that to be complete bullshit. To top off this experience we got to talk to a guy and said how can they sell that much in that short of time and he went "Tough." Douchebag right there so screw it wont be attending as many games as I planned on.

Anyway back to the reason for the post. I got into the points of the PPI ending up in 11th place. I only played 8% of the hands I saw which if you know percents is pretty horrid. I usually play pocket pairs, suited connectors, big cards and once in a while bluff but still saw 19 flops out of 229 which is crazy. I got very lucky when I played king queen vs ace 9offsuit(I hate that hand sooooooo much) and rivered a straight to his set of aces. The only other hand I really pushed with was jacks vs king queen off and the jacks held for me. This is my first points in a while so im feeling alright just wish I got to have some more hands to play with because even though I play like that it gets annoying when other people get hands over and over and over again and you see 2 3 over and over and over btw not suited. Tomorrow I should be playing in the Skillz game hopefully I can do well again since I do want points but really want a win.

BTW I gotta thank Numbbono for his comment he gave me I know I cant win everyone but I get where you were coming from and I know it was words of encouragement so I want to thank you for that. Also I want to give a shout out to Buddy and Joananda for their engagement. Congratz :).

PPI/Skillz Game

These tourneys for me sucked. It might sound like im either making this crap up or just bitching a bit too much, but im just really getting annoyed of how when I have aces and never seem to win and when I face aces I cant crack them. The PPI I had aces 2 times and lost to king queen and king ten, the king queen lost to trip queens and king ten to straight. Went out with queens vs aces.

Skillz game I lost when I flopped a set with another pair so I had some out but I ran into a flush and couldnt improve. Then when I go all in I have queens again vs aces and lose

Tomorrow night Idk if im going to be home from work but right now the way im running idk even if I do get home I would even play it since it would be a quick 11 dollar loss but who knows.
