What a difference a day makes.

Wash rinse repeat.

It's nice when you throw something out to the cosmos and fate decides to shine on you if only for a few minutes.

Needless to say I was able to get my poker fix yesterday and I had a good one..

I started out small in the 3+.30 MTT just so I could see some cards and donk it up a bit... 2 hours later I made a small cash in that donkfest YAY.

I followed that up with a couple of tokens and a nice little cash game cash. Last night I decided to give the nightly 50/50 a shot as well as the $75 token frenzy. I played fast and loose at one and rocky at the other. I managed to spew chips in the frenzy then double a few times. Unfortunately I stayed pretty wild and failed to get a token.

The 50/50 was a war of attrition. I managed to get quads fairly early and coast through the second hour getting NO cards to play. Near the bubble I had to take a stand with KT and hit the flop. I doubled up again with the JACKACE vs AK. I committed myself preflop and hit the Jack on the turn.

Other than those 2 hands I was playing tighter than a frogs ass and limped into 61st place, committing myself with ATh vs KK. GONDO, but it felt pretty good to run deep in a 1000+ tournament without the benefit of the deck hitting me in the face. I ended the tournament playing 11% eek!

I also managed to take down a 33+3 sng while the 50/50 was going on. weee hoo!

Can anyone tell me who rags007 is and why he has a personalized Avatar but is not a FT pro? I took him out first in the sng with a straight flush draw that hit the flush. Interesting.

Wow, nice run in the 50-50. I think I saw you last night on the 50-50 also. Nice!

Btw, personalized avatars are overrated. Esp when FTP first started, they were giving those things out to people who won a certain tournament and stuff. So I've seen cash game donks with personal avatars... now you can also get them for a 1,000,000 (I might be missing a few zeros) FTP points...
