Riverchasers Win*

At the last minute, I decided to sign up for the Riverchasers tournament last night. I figured I'd sit down with the wife on the couch and play while we watched Grey's Anatomy. I usually don't play the Thursday night Blogger tournament because of the earlier start time. The kids are never in bed by then, and last night was no different, as I didn't sit down and play much until 45 minutes had already passed.

I think I played pretty well and was pretty aggressive with steals and re-steals. The tables I was at was playing really really tight, so I got away with a lot of steals. The only person that stood up to me more than once was RasingCayne. Around the middle of the 2nd hour, I won a nice pot with AA vs KK. From there I hovered Between the top 3 and top 10 right up to the final table.

At the final table, I had a couple massive suckouts. I don't feel too bad, because I don't think I made any huge mistakes. When you raise with A5s and someone pushes all-in, and you are being offered 3:1 on your call, you have to call with pretty much any two cards.

The two big ones were my AJ vs AK all-in PF. Flop was KQx giving me just a gutshot. But the turn and river were both Jacks, giving me the pot. I also got it all-in vs CK31 with my A5s vs JJ. Flop was Jack high, but it gave me a gutshot, and I hit it on the river.

I put the * asterisk up in the title because when it got down to heads up, it was between Loretta8 and myself and we made a deal giving me the TOC seat, and Loretta8 the money. I'm ok with that because Loretta had a 3:2 chip lead (I know, not much), but I suck at heads up play. Plus, I won about the same amount on the cash tables last night as I shipped over to Loretta. So I think I came out ahead.

That's right folks, another cash game specialist is in the TOC. Woot!


April Results

After the brutal start to the month, I turned things around, and ended on a super duper hot streak. When the month was over for me, I had a new Best Month Ever . It feels pretty good to fight back from being down so much. Here is the cash game graph.

I think my MTTs were pretty much even, and then I'll make $500 or so in rakeback. Not too shaby!


Disney World was awesome last week. I'm going to put together a bigger post with more pictures and a trip report maybe later tonight or this weekend. But in the meantime, here is a cute picture of the kids with Piglet at one of the character meals we went too.
