Challenge Day 1

Watched DNasty win a 6 person and I got railbirded by Gary, Jordan, Kipper and DNasty. Thanks for stopping by.

Played on 5+.50 6 person SNG, SNG-0007o

Busted out 4th in 80 + hands with the hammer. I knew I was a goner, but it was worth it to go down in style.

Going to try to play one more, my head was not really in this one as I was working on a partner's home computer from my Columbus office. His HD was wacked out and had over 2,000 infected files on it. I am about to see if it will boot now.

Update - played one more SNG tonight:

5 + .50 10 person SNG -

Watched GCOX and HighOnPoker play a SNG together and noticed that there was a familiar name at their table, they had ended up at a table with one the fish I have tagged on the UB buddylist. He was catching some cards, but I watched Jordan take a nice one from him with a better kicker. He was chip leader for awhile, but eventually went out 4th.

Rght after TripJax stoppedby, this happened. Booooo. I knew I had this punk.

No rake is taken for this hand.

Piece of Monkey Piss!!! A4o?? Calls a Pot sized raise, and then goes all in on pair of fours? I guess I should be happy that guys like this are playing me in the money, but not much fun when they draw out on you. Consolation is I would play this hand the same the next time... and probably win.

Getting to bed, Jordan and Gary are both in the money on their table. This challenge should be fun!!

Net result after night one:

Jordan ended up busting in third with the hammer and I came all the way back for the win.
Great talking with you and sweating you last night. I look forward to the next 4 weeks.
Thanks for the link-up also.

Good lookin' out yo. Excellent gaming last night. I'll drop by and say hello anytime I log on and you are playing. BTW, for some reason I didn't have you linked up, but that has been cleared up today.

May the felt be with you.
