After a decent day of sng's on Bodog I should have stuck with them. Instead I chose to play cash. First orbit.
Back to the sng's.

Big slick sucks donkey balls

Howdy! How you doing?

Life changes continue and as to be expected things are still a bit stressful. My move is about 89% complete with everything being completed this weekend.

I've also found some free time in the evenings to play this new fad called poker. After my win in the 5k on Bodog I finally have a bankroll to play with again. Results have been fairly break even but good. The past 2 nights I have played in the 30+3 5K event on Bodog and managed to squeak into the money. But in the past 4 tourneys I've played on any site I have gone out in the same exact fashion. AK seems to be my weakness. AK < AJ. AK < KJ. AK < A5 and last night AK < A9. Each time I raised I was pushed back on by a big stack and getting unlucky or I am playing it wrong. And yes admittedly I have been pretty weak at bubble and need reevaluate my play to win strategy over playing get into the money. But boy is it starting to piss me off when i can't win just one of these

OKIE-VEGAS is now less than 2 weeks away!!!!
I should be back to posting on a more regular basis soon.

I'll be sporadic at best this week cause I'm moving. WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Moving sucks big time!

Many may have heard Iowa was having a few flood problems. I do not live in a bad area but upon further inspection of my basement today there was WAY more damage than I originally thought. Soooo gross. My yard is now full of water logged boxes, clothes, carpets and crap. It's going to be a fun week.

Had a pretty good weekend of pokering too.
Small cash but it felt good to get this far with no cards.And after a few sng cashes I'm still running pretty darn goot. I'm liking bodog more and more every day.

Not sure I'll be back up and running Wednesday for the Mookie but I'm going to try.

errrr....OK so NO I didn't win the BIG Bodog TOC game last night but I did win this.

Here's what happened.

Got home last night and figured I'd fire up a game to get warmed up or something for the TOC. I only had T cash on Bodog so that means no SNG's. I found the next MTT starting in 2 minutes and it was this 5K Guarantee. Not sure what I was thinking when I joined this because I wasn't interested in playing 2 games. I guess I just figured I'd donk out since it was 1500 starting stacks with a blind structure almost twice as fast as the Bodonkey. Slowly I crept up and all the sudden I'm at the final table. I felt I played well in the tourney but I have to be honest here. I was lucky enough to have Aces 8 Freaking Times! None were cracked and I was paid off on almost all of them. Funny because I was playing super tight and still getting action on the few hands I was playing. Slowly I began to bring up the aggression and BAM BOOM ROAR! I took it down.

While all of this was going on I was in the Bodonkey and never really got anything started. Made the final table but went out in 9th. I'm disappointed in not winning the Bodonkey but at the same time I just had my largest MTT score ever. Hard to be too upset.

Congrats to GoldenHammer who is a Japanese blogger that I'm pretty sure none of us know. A bit sad as it's hard to see him flying over for the WSOP but who knows.

Big chance for the Big Dance

Many years ago, shortly after starting to play poker online for real money, I won a satellite in to one of the larger tourneys on Party Poker. I had never played a large MTT and was still grinding it out at limit hold em games. But boy was I excited about the chance to play for that much money. At the time I really thought I had a chance and started thinking about what I would do with all that money. I was out within the first hour but the rush I felt sitting down at that virtual table was quite the experience. Of course overtime I realized how slim my odds were and do not get nearly as worked up when playing these MTT's anymore.

Until now.....well except for that fact that this is more like an SNG.

Tonight we play the Bodonkey TOC. 18 bloggers battling it out for 1 Main Event seat. The field is tough but manageable. The rush is starting to hit me again and it feels good. I like my chances tonight and am more excited about playing poker then I have been in a long time.

Live Poker Radio will be on air tonight. We will have some things to talk about preshow but once the cards are dealt I will hopefully have someone else to take over the show for a bit. I really want to give the game my full attention tonight. And if for some strange reason I get knocked out early, I'll be back on air getting drunk. WOOT!

Have a great weekend everyone!

I'm going to try to be available to be on air during the TOC Saturday. Hopefully I get home in time for the start of it but I shouldn't be too late.

Not sure I've mentioned this here but I'm moving at the end of the month. My weekends will be filled with packing and cleaning and cleaning. I fucking hate moving but it's not a bad situation so I'll just have to suck it up and get busy. Plus it's only about 30 miles from where I live currently.

As much as I could care less for basketball, I had a great time watching the game last night. When I was younger I was a Celtics fan but really only because I worshipped Larry Bird. So I'm going to get back on that bandwagon and root for the boys in green. But with regards to ABC's broadcast, we need MORE Larry and less Magic. WE WANT LARRY! WE WANT LARRY!!!

And for those possibly concerned(all 1 of you), due to some negativity in some of my more recent posts, don't worry cause I'm in a much better mood now and have a more positive outlook on things to come.

Is it me or am I seeing more poker blogs getting all emotional and crap lately? Poker? Oh yeah? That's what we're here for! I forget sometimes, might be the drugs.

Never been so happy to be in the Dank

Bodonkey! Me no play goot so me no have more points. Had to sweat it out as it was unclear on how or if Bodog was rounding to determine how many people got points. Looks like they round down so that was good for me as I clinched the 18th spot but just barely. Whew!

Drama Bombs will be dropping as talk of collusion and whatnot that are almost a given when there is a prize this big at stake. This of course should shock no one if you've been around even for a short while. Cause you know online poker is rigged! Right Smokkee?

Bastard took down his own tourney again to claim the bounty place on his head. I don't really have a good conspiracy theory yet but if he wins the TOC we should have plenty of ammo. Best of luck to everyone in next weeks TOC.

Mookie tonight! Tragedy and I will be broadcasting yet another annivesary show. This time it's for when IT joined the show. No drunken box o wine Buddy tonight. I think it's IT's turn.

Yadda yadda yadda, Bodonkey something something

Tonight is the last game of the Bodonkey series before the TOC next week. If you are low in points or on the bubble, let me give you this piece of advice. Quit! Just don't play tonight. It will save you the further embarrassment.

Looks like I'll be flying solo on the radio tonight as Tragedy is focused on the game tonight and wants no interruptions. Me? I'm not a pussy so I'll be on the air.

Tune In!

HEY, anyone know how to get rid of a muscle spasm. My right eyebrow won't stop twitching and I'm tired of looking quizzical.

Well that was fun. NOT

Ambiguous statements with cryptic overtones be damned.
The slightly hyped 'announcement' I was looking to make is squashed. Mostly. There may be some minor things that arise from this but right now everything is pretty much a bust.

Now that the BBT3 is over, I'm afraid we will not being attempting to do shows most nights of the week. There will still be a show Tuesday for the end of the Bodonkey. But after that there will be a hiatus of sorts while I try to figure out what I will do next. The future's so bright I have to slightly squint.

I'm off to make some decisions and changes that are almost guaranteed to piss off some friends. WHHHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
