Mookie and a super turbo rigged fest.

Hi all. This week mookie saw a little bounce back up to 3 tables which is around what it was before the BBT5. I got 8th nothing too special happening in it.

Now with the other tourneys my god I wonder sometimes if these things are set up for action boards. In one particular super turbo I saw 3 flopped quads and this gem of a flop

Im holding pocket 6's and im all in flop comes 7 6 4 two hearts
Guess what my opponents are holding?
One is holding pocket 7's the other one is holding 8 5.

I dont know if its just me or does that seem very very off based on the amount of hands I saw seeing that amount of big time hands in such a short period. I mean people rarely see quads once in a huge session and yet seeing 3 in the course of 160 hands something about this is puting me closer to the edge saying this isnt right. Its my opinion so Im not saying its fact just doesnt seem right.

If you agree or disagree please let me know I would want to hear opinions.

Next week I wont be playing the mookie since I will be going to Las Vegas for a few days. I will write a report about my trip when I get back.

Last week of the BBT and Toc

Hey all sorry I havnt been keeping up with the blog. I had some time so I figured I would post about the final week of the BBT.

On Mondays tourney guess what beat me again lol. Yep it was aces again vs my pocket kings so yea needless to say busted early from that tourney.

On Wednesday's mookie I acutally didnt bust to aces which shocked the hell out of me. I was holding ace queen and I was short stacked so I pushed and Aquaman called with king jack off. We had a suck,resuck,re-resuck out hand where he flopped a jack I turned a queen and he rivered a king. So that busted me from that middle of the pack.

My run in the BBT5 was over after that resulting in 1 final table and 1 cash which from last year was a huge disappointment.

The toc came and went with some big things happening for my in real life friend NyRambler where he won a main event seat. Congrats to his great run this BBT and for basically running amazing when it matters most.

What ive been up to the last week basically just working and playing cash games online. My god I forgot how many fishes their are in 3/6 limit games online. Basically making my bankroll back from the horrible run of the BBT in the course of 3 days so yay me. I will write a report of my mookie right after the tourney on wed. I hope to have people read and comment on it

Monday Tourney

Shocking I get knocked out vs aces yet again. I think its a bad sign that Ive yet to see aces in these tourneys in over 2 weeks and been knocked out to them each of the last 4 tourneys of the BBT 5 events and overall of the 17 events its been close to a dozen. Im either just running like shit or am I that unlucky? I hope its just im running like crap and it goes away soon or my trip to vegas is going to hurt.

Poker Catching up

Hi again. Havnt posted in a while so I figured I would catch everyone up on how im doing.

Lets put it this way last 4 of the 5 BBT tourneys have been busted vs aces when I've been holding 10's of better yay me. I've had to push with them preflop since ive been running cold. On mondays tourney at one point I was so cold I only had 1 ace and a total of 3 playable hands out of a run of 65 hands.

Im been just running horrid for the better part of the last 3 months which Im not too happy about, but yea what can you do. Hopefully for the last week of the BBT5 I just want to cash. Based off last years performance getting 13th and a win last year Im not liking how im playing atm.

This week in blogger tourneys

Hi. This week I didnt win either tourney but I did have decent runs. In the money tourney I finished in the mid 20's which is decent but no cash. That tourney didnt really have much to note about, just played the cards how they were and busted out on a hand that was a coinflip nothing I can do.

The mookie I managed to finish in 7th place so I made some money which was good. The final 2 tables I didnt get a single hand better then king 6 suited which was shocking since it was about 60 hands, cue violin music. I managed to just claw and kick my way into making the final table so its a step in a positive direction.

Congrats to hoy for winning on monday and as for the mookie winner Im not sure who you are but it was like watching a trainwreck. The plays made were beyond crazy and made me wonder whats going on here. Hey whatever works for ya, as you got the seat and I dont have one as of yet.

Turtle Out.

The Mookie 4/21/10

Last night saw the biggest mookie tourney ever, 122 people. Its a nice comeback for a tourney that was having a semi-hard time breaking 40. I didnt fair so hot in the tourney going on in the 90's when my set of queens got run down by a runner runner flush to cripple me and then my ace queen lost to an 8 7 again by runner runner flush. What can I do there. Congrats go to aquaman, aka xkm, for getting his seat into the Tournament of Champions.

Also Congrats are in order for Pushmonkey, Rambler, and everyone else that got invites into the freeroll events. Even though I didnt get one I'm not upset about it since I know I'm still the new kid on the block when it comes to the blogging community so wasn't expecting to have my name called for it. Either way I still wish everyone thats doing those freerolls luck and no bad beats, but you know those will happen.

Until next time. Turtle Out

Starting a New

Hi again. I havnt posted in a while so I figured I would start now since the news of the BBT5 is offical now. I have to thank AlCantHang for again providing the blogger community a chance to be able to play in the biggest event of the year, the WSOP. When the last BBT came around I was fairly new to the blogger community and to the people playing the tourneys on a regular basis. I hope that since the last BBT I have made a better impression on people then I did last year. I know that the people playing the Mookie and listen to Buddy Dank Radio will know me as Turtle from the peanut gallery. I try to ad what I can to that show and I have to thank everyone doing the show for letting me be on it on a regular basis and to deal with my crap and of course Ramblers. I will be writing more frequent about my poker playing and just other stuff in general. I hope to hear your comments and possible ideas for things people want me to talk about
