In other news... after knocking out Wil Wheaton in tonight's WWdN tourney on Stars, I managed to go out on the bubble when my 55 fell to AJ. I hear that Wil likes to get knocked out by girls:
Gracie: and nice job knocking out wil! first me, then tanya, then you! he's PWNED by the ladies!Hey - if ya gotta go down in flames, might as well let boobs do it!
Me: LOL not too many guys would complain about that
April finished Bubble+1, after taking down some monster hands to stay alive. Together, we are losers. :)
My friend Ed convinced me to play in the $5 rebuy tourney on Stars tonight. I managed to place in the money (lowest tier, but still money) and make a $16 profit. LOL! The first hour was just insane - five way all-in's were not unusual, and it seemed like somebody was all in on every hand. Things calmed down a bit after that first hour, but it seems quite certain that a vital part of the strategy of those things is to accumulate a chip stack during that first hour, because if you don't have at least 10k in chips in front of you, you're at a serious disadvantage.
I also placed 3rd in a $5 sit n' go on Stars this afternoon. After all is said and done, I've earned a profit of $3.53 today. Ha! I really wanted to make it to the final table in the WWdN tourney though - if for no other reason than the fame of such an accomplishment. Oh well. I've got one more week that I can play in the Thursday night game before I have to go back to work. Maybe next time.
