Wednesday Poker...

"Remind yourself, nobody built like you, you designed yourself." Jay-Z - A Dream.

I'm just finishing up my last tournament for the night. I am currently 27/67 in the 50/50 on FTP. Had a couple shots tonight. Got 11th or 12th in the 100 cubed on FTP, 50th in the 300 NL on stars, close to bubbled the 100r 6max on FTP and there might of been something else. Oh well. My night will be saved if I can do well in this 50/50.

Okay now I am currently 6/65 after this really active guy doubled me up in this hand:

I think his play is not so good. Worst case there is I have a flush draw and over/overs but my raise size I tried to make it look like I flopped a bad 2 pair. He just insta-shoved, so I'm figuring he didn't even think about it. I could have just called on the flop but I felt like gambling in this spot to get a big stack and it worked out. It's about a coinflip with me being 48% to win.

I would post some hands from tonight but I only saved a couple sick beats for huge pots which I will not post in this blog and I will spare everyone all the pain of seeing the hands.

I think anyone who doesn't play the Wednesday tournaments at least sometimes should definitely play them. They get a lot of people in some of the tournaments and it seems like all the little events are action packed. So anyone who hasn't fired up poker on Wednesday night I suggest you do so.

After I finish this last tournament I am going to workout (or sleep) and I'll try to keep up with the updates. If and when I head out to Vegas I will have daily updates from all the tournaments and hand histories and everything, so the blog will be really active again.

Update: 12th...grr....
