Good Week

mookie win

It started Tuesday night with a third place finish in the Weekly Wheatie, and the hot streak continued with a Wednesday win in the Mookie. My secret? Have AA in the big blind when someone raises into you. Happened three times in this tourney.

I played the hammer six times in the Wil Wheaton tournament, and won all six times, once winning 1000 chips from CJ which put me into the lead.

I played it twice in the Mookie, the final time when heads up. Won 10,000 with it after a continuation bet. I folded it once when I was in the small blind and there were two all-ins in front of me.

Papi Justify got horribly unlucky on the last hand of the Mookie. I raised A5 and he reraised. Flop came 235 and I pushed, thinking top pair might be good, if not I had redraws with the ace and the gutshot straight. Papi called with 66 and I started begging. I didn't have to beg for long when the turn was a 5 and I just barely had him covered, so the bad beat ended the tourney.

Mookie always live blogs his tournament on his blog: 9/28/06 Mookie. Interesting that I was either leader or in second for nearly the entire tournament, but my name isn't even mentioned outside of chipcounts until 11:55 in a three hour tournament that ended at Midnight! THAT'S how you win these things, stay under the radar!

Yeah, Papi knocked me out when he had AA in the big blind. It was fitting that the 2 of you went heads up. Nice job.
