I've played almost as much live poker as online over the last few weeks. How's it going? Let's see:
1)18 players -finished 9th
2)13 players -finished 1st
3)27 players -finished 12th
4)20 players -finished 18th
The 27 player tournament is my monthly WSOP wanna be tournament. We have played 8 of 12 tournaments and I am ranked 4th (disappointing to say the least). Top 3 spots will get a buy in to the WSOP this year (1st gets the Main Event -the other two get $1500 buy ins). It's an interesting series to say the least, because you have to focus on winning the monthly tournament, but also try to get as many points as possible each month. Sometimes your decisions will be different depending on which you are focusing on at any given moment. I have won enough money to cover 10 of the 13 buy ins, so that helps. We finish up in April with a "2 tournaments in one day" extravaganza.
I was looking at Party Poker the other day, which is one of the best UK poker sites on the net. I heard a rumor that they might be opening up play to the United States players again. We still talk about how "juicy" it was playing there. . Anyone else heard anything on this?
Anyway, looks like it's back to work. Stay patient....

But, we are still in need of prizes. Any monetary or prizes donated would be greatly appreciated. We need money, online poker funds, hats, shirts, electronics, books, poker chips, or anything else that we could give away as a prize. These tournaments are only a success because of the donations we get as prizes. The better the donations, the better the prizes, the more people we can entice into playing. All the money raised will go directly to Colon Cancer Patients. For more information, go to http://www.figgtree.com/ .
Last year we raised right at $3,000. This year, I would love to raise over $5,000.
You may contact the foundation directly, or leave a post here and I will contact you. Or you may contact me at broncohawk7 at yahoo dot com.
Thanks for considering this.

First player out is Mazoo99 on a busted draw....
Next out is ifoldallthetime. I couldn't see his muck since he was at another table, but I would guess it was a suckout that took him out...
Andybel142 takes out Mandalgan, putting Andy as the chip leader by far.
BigOface (my son) stays alive after I try to take him out with da bitches.
babbs01 is the next one out, with Acerag.
I get knocked out on an attempted blind steal shove. I was down to 500 chips or so at the time.
BigOface outlasts his dad (me) but goes out right afterwards to blowinadeuce's mighty K2soooted...
Next out is the once big chip leader Andybel142. blowinadeuce continues to dominate anyone that takes him on. Bowie300 gets caught up in the big pot with bad timing for 2 pair and he goes out after Andybel142 only because his chip stack was bigger.
With Andybel142 and Bowie300 gone, we are down to the final table and only 8 players left. Blowinadeuce has a DOMINATING chip stack.
Here thecloserx5 wins a HUGE pot to take out JohnWPSpoker and takes about half of blowinadeuce's chips.
next out is pjloch with a pocket pair shove that can't beat Acerag.
Thecloserx5 wins another big one to take out the defending champion trusturgutshot.
Thecloserx5 continues his domination, taking out tgrazz's bitches, with Acerag.
blowinadeuce is officially out and then changed his name to blowinthechiplead. thecloserx5 now has everyone completely dominated in chips.
shimmshady goes out 3rd and first out that made the money. He gets $32.
Thecloserx5 takes out rickphillips to win it all. rickphillips gets $40 for 2nd place.
Congratulations to thecloserx5 for winning 2 out of the first 3 tournaments. He gets $80 for 1st this time and quickly offered up a bounty for taking him out next time. Next tournament will be February 8th (since The Superbowl will be the first Sunday in February). Come play and take out thecloserx5 to win your buyin back. Hope to see you there. Thanks to everyone that played this time.
