long stinkin line!
argh! I was so psyched to play in this tourney last night. I was hopin to meet some of you guys in person...
I was tied up at work for a while, so I called my buddy and told him to head down there to get us some spots. He got there at 5pm and was alternate # 46! DOH! The tourney director said that by the time we got on, the blinds would be 100/200. With only 1800 starting chips, that didn't sound like much fun.
SOoooo, my buddy and I headed to Capital Casino and played from 7pm - 11:30. Played the $3/$6 tables and went down $100, up some, down some and stopped while I was up $100. Good fun, great table with some easy reads.
Made two stupid mistakes that probably cost me around $35 - 40 total. 1st mistake, hit my straight on the river and was so excited I overplayed it... re-raising twice with a pair on the board. Of course my competition hit the Full Boat on the flop, so that was no good! DOH! Second error, (I'm holding K, J) J, Q,K on the board, 5 checks to me, I bet. All call. Turn comes 2. Checks all around I bet. All call. Then comes an 8. For some stupid reason, that 8 made me think that somebody hit a straight (of course that makes NO sense whatsoever... like I said it was a stupid mis-read on my part). So I checked it down and won with my two pair to a top pair A kicker. SO I missed some action on that one too. Probably could've gotten a couple extra bets in the pot.
All in all a good, fun night.
Still on my "to do list" is the Limelight. Thought about heading over there last night, but I liked my table too much.
