Still Warm and Fuzzy
Wow. I am still feeling mighty good about last nights win. As you all know I tend to be an emotional player. When I busted out 8th in Thursday nights WWDN it was painful. I was really bumming. Sort of like when Iggy busted me on the bubble in Saturday's With Dr. Pauly. However, I always bounce back fast, and just like Dr. Pauly's I came back the next time and took it all down.
I actually want to examine the KJ pivitol hand a little more also. It was true it was risky, dangerous, etc.. but it also is not totally my move. I read about something like this in Phil Gordons little Green book. I paraphrase but basically Phil likes every once in a while to cold call a flop bet and then raise over the top on the turn. It is a scary thing. It really says either I was trapping you or I have a really good hand your doomed. Now I do not know how he would feel about risking all your chips on a move like this but I liked it. If you have not read the Little Green Book you should. Before I read it I thought of Phil as "That Hollywood Doofus guy". Shows how much Poker history I know. Afterwards though I gained a great deal of respect for him. One thing that was interesting but can be hard to pull of in low-limit poker is the varied bet move. I think most of us either pot it or check-fold. His betting strategy involved putting up between 1/3-3/4th the pot in a random fashion. The only problem with this is alot of donkeys see this as a weak bet and automajically come over the top of you. Use this to your advantage when you can.
Buy the book though. It explains things much better than I ever could. I added a link to the book below in my Amazon section if you want it.
On a brighter note me and Boobs are in negotiations to write "WWDN: Beating the System". As multi-time winners we will share with you our patented secrets to beating the tourney. All this can be yours for the low low price of 19.95+s/h and tax where applicaple.
On that note did I win some entry to some special WWDN winner tourney or something? I thought I read something about that somewhere. Would be a nice cherry on the top! Also, if someone has naming rights, may I suggest "Sir Waffles House of Pain". heh.
Did I forget to mention Iggys all in with the hammer last night? In all my excitement I think I may have. Balls of Steel little Dwarf! Balls of Steel! He not only went all in, but he had a HUGE stack. The kind of stack that easily could have made the final table. A stack bigger than mine. He pushes it all into the middle with the Hammer with 14 or so people left. WOW! I bow to you Sir. One day I hope to be half as good as you.
Ohhhhhh... I almost forgot. My Aqua-Lung came today. It is a little thing. Looks like a vacume but goes the other way. Hope this helps my health improve.
Ok. I am an airhead and my ranting has gone on long enough. Thanks again to everyone who posted, cheered me on, and all that stuff. I hope to be able to build on my meager start. I have a nice working roll at PokerStars with Small starter rolls of $40 and $50 at Titan and Full Tilt. Hopefully I can score in a few small MTTs on these sites and get all three rolls up to healthy status.
