Floppy Flop

Gotta love the action too! Luckily, it held, unlike yesterday, when I flopped a boat with 88, only to have QJ get it all in with me on a q82 flop, and then see the proverbial 'runner runner' QJ send me to rail.

2011 NBC National Heads-Up Championship Field Revealed

You can find the full article from Bluff and list here.

Now in light of the big 2+2 thread regarding Sorel Mizzi and John Racener, wouldn't it be cool to have them matched up? At least they will have a 3rd party dealer this time! lol!

Highway robbery at FTOPS ME FT!

This was a whopper of a main event for the latest installment of the FTOPs. The final table deal went down early this morning, and from the looks of it, someone made out like a bandit. I believe Blur is Blair Hinkle, and a pretty good thing he had multi entered (6 Entries) this tournament. 1.1 Million ROI on his 6 entries is pretty damn good, especially given how he made out on the deal. At the time of the deal, the chip counts were roughly:

60m (Blur)
30m (Giampp)
16m (SirMad)

The deal was..

1.145m (Blur)
830k (Giampp)
805k (SirMad)

About 65k left to play for. With Giampp winning the ME, he banked less than 2nd would have been pre-deal. Sirmad would have got 620k ish for 3rd pre-deal.

One thing of note which was interesting, is that Giampp only had one entry in the tournament. I might be wrong, but he may be the first, non-multi entry player to win a big buy-in multi-entry tourny, since Fulltilt started these a month or so ago. Nevertheless, the MultiEntry format definitely benefits the elite players, and as long as they continue, winner's like Giampp will be far and few between. Of the 9 players at the final table, only Giampp and beerocrat had single entries, all the rest had multi's, with the majority holding 6 entries!

Final Table the 35k

I was able to ride the just previously posted 'str8 flush' to a 6th place finish in the 35K. Talk about not being able to close out a tourney, this is getting old. I had the chip lead at one point when we were down to 2 tables, but it wasn't meant to be.

It still is what I love about tournament play, and will keep plugging away. In this tournament, pretty much everyone left after 3 tables were pretty good/expert players. I am always up for the challenge, and felt I held my own fairly well.

Granted I was aided by that spectacular suckout, but hey, you have to have a little bit of help from lady luck along the way.


FU and your never ending string of st8 & Royals Flushes!

You don't see this often

And by that, I am referring to coming out on the + end of the suckout! Amazing no one had a heart!
