It's like the Mookie, only earlier.

Interesting hand from last night's Mookie. Very loose call pre-flop, but summer_babe got whacked for most of her chips on the previous hand when her KK went down to Gary's QQ which rivered a Q. AK is the worst possible hand Gary could play here so folding was the right play. I had it in my head to call as soon as summer_babe went all-in and Gary's call just made me think "better pot odds!" Don't get married to your hands, kids. There needs to be a constitutional amendment for it.

I still managed to outlast both Gary and summer_babe and took third. The tourney was thinner than normal because it started an hour earlier than scheduled. Only 36 played and four paid.

summer_babe went out two hands later when snake5970, who donked it up all night, min raised aces utg, got called in a zillion places but managed to river an ace to take a huge chip lead. snake5970 still had to suck out twice with dominated aces at the final table to take second place.

I played in the same seat the entire night and the table was fun from start to finish. I knew everyone at the starting table except one (Prophesy?) and all the fill-ins joined in the fun.

There, I posted a hand history, now JJ can read me again.

First off, great title for your post.....

Second, congrats on your third place finish! Well done.....

Third, agree on the sentiments regarding playing Gary in an allin.....basically, don't ever do it unless you're sitting on AA or KK.

And finally, I will never stop reading you Dugs.....

Thanks for the laugh. Now go win an O8 tourney......

And did you get your landscaping done yet?
