Lucksac = Me!

I won THE MOOKIE!!! Woot Woot!

So they say that you can't win a tournament without getting lucky once or twice. How about 6 times???!! Karma was on my side is all I can say about that.
What a fun night. We had BuddyDank Radio on the air with all the new improvements kicking in. And we had 33 listeners last night at our peak. Wow! We even had our first special guest. Sean and myself were grooving along both playing in the Mook and hosting the show. And then along came PokerEnthusiast on the Skype to make it a trifecta. He had some interesting things to say while he continued to play in last nights Dookie.

My night of poker started off pretty normal. I was busy as fuck trying to keep the broadcast going, checking IM's and basically folding my cards. Played a lot of premium hands and chipped up to about double the starting chips. Shortly after this the points bubble burst and karma kicked in. I made several plays with ace paint only to be pushed in by a stronger ace. I won every single time. It was absolutely sick. Caught my flush on the river once, made trips on the turn, and even caught a bigger boat to take the chip lead.
The final table went pretty quick to began with. I caught a couple good hands to double up and pretty soon I was sitting on a very large stack with just 4 players left. My biggest hand of the night came against Zeem on a J77 flop. I had a J and took a chance that Zeem did not have the 7. All the chips go in and he turns up K7. Ouch! Karma comes around the corner for me and kicks Zeem right in the jimmy with a jack on the river! Sick sick timing. He goes out shortly after and we were down to 3. Fishiswa and Bcbombers have it out and Bcbombers out kicks his ace. After Fishiswa was basically blinded out I pulled a 180 with my game play. Up until then I had been playing tight conservative poker. When we got heads up, I turned up the heat and surprisingly he backed down on almost every hand. To finsh it off I got 2 pocket pairs in a row with 6's and J's and they held up both times leaving me with my first win at The Mookie!

Thanks to Schaubs for sending me the screenshot!

Not only was it my first Mookie victory, but it was my first blogger tourney victory and more importantly my first MTT victroy EVER! I'd come close a number of time but could never close the deal. Wow does it feel great to finally win one of these games.

I'd like to thank everyone who tuned in to BuddyDank Radio last night! We had a great time and I hope you did too.
My main man Timmy(ricky424) wanted me to thank the folks who donated some cashola to his account. He provides the server and bandwidth for the broadcast. He played his first blogger touney last night and I hope to see him as a regular during the weeks to come. He sent me a graph of last nights bandwidth usage.

That's good stuff right there. And we weren't every close to maxed out!

Make sure and come on out for more fun tonight during the Riverchasers Event.

Buddy, as I told you last night in the girly chat, the radio broadcast is a breath of fresh air and the most fun new idea the bloggers have come up with for our weekly tournaments in some time. The show is really, really awesome and I can't wait to hear more tonight. I bet your audience is bigger and bigger starting tonight with so many positive comments about the show in other blogs. It's all well deserved my man, you do an excellent job with it and I'm sure it will only get better with time.

Congrats on the win...u'ze a big pimp now.

And teh show is awesome. I listened during the donkament, but missed it last night. Apparently I missed a good one.

If I play the chasers tonight, I'll be tuning in.

The way everone's jockin your nuts over the radio show, you GOTTA be in pain by now. At least a little bit swollen.

Not that it's undeserved though. It is pretty fucking entertaining.

Congrats on the win and keep up the good work!
