Repeat Offender

I had about a buck sixty-five left in my PokerRoom account after I cashed out for Vegas, as I found out when I logged in this evening before the WWdN Not tournament. I busted out of that WWdN variant quite unceremoniously one minute before the PokerRoom tournament started. Twenty-one seconds short of FIVE HOURS later, this was the result.

Five times as many people as the last one, but only a $1 buy in. Serious donkeyness in this one. I chipped up very early but got cripped when someone got all in against me with QQQ2. I guess he thought he had enough chips because he sat out after that. (He bubbled)

I on the other hand made a huge comeback, taking the lead with two tables left. I was in second when we made the final table, and it was pretty much a two-man fight the whole way. Heads-up lasted a total of three hands. I remember thinking it was going to take forever with such huge stacks and only 15K big blinds, but on the third hand I turned the nut low and the nut flush draw, got him all in and the beautiful spade came on the river, giving me his final 500,000 chips.

It's past 3am, I have to work tomorrow and Mrs. Bogey is flying in to look at houses tomorrow. It should be a busy weekend, and I'm going to start it on no sleep. There's a lesson to be learned there: Don't play online poker if you value your sleep very much.

If you can outlast the donks in the first hour or so of those tourneys then you have a good shot at it. The chips fly fast as most players figure to double up early or bust.

Grats on winning it all and creating a new bankroll on Pokerroom.

Excellent run, Duggles. Chipper's right. Those low buy-in MTTs are total donk-fests thru the first hour or so. Most of those I've played in shed 2/3 of the field in just about a half hour. To survive 999 donks at 4 in the morning is impressive. Nicely done!
