September 4, 2008, 9PM: Played 2 hours, 30 minutes, Lost $55.00 at Full Tilt Poker
$55 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (201st out of 901 Players)

First time playing in about a month.  Was low around the 2nd break with ~10 BB then doubled with AK v 10 8 sooted.  A few hands later I get 10 10.  UTG min raised to 480 and the next 2 guys called.  I had the first guy covered but the other two had ~15k each.  I decided to push for ~4k and UTG called as did one of the other original callers.  I was up against 77 and AK respectively.  Board comes Q2345 and I lose to the straight.  Worst part was I thought I had won...

$26 tourney last night

So after I little while of taking some nasty beats I've been playing pretty well.  I won into FTOPS #1 but can't play so I just took the tourney dollars.  I was deep in the $24 8 o'clock tournament tonight but donnked out.  Yesterday I got really deep ending up finishing 35th or so.  One guy sucked out twice on me which would have put me in really good position with first getting $7500. 
First hand I raise to 14k with KJ in the SB with blinds 2k/4k.  He immediately shoves for ~70k (he did the exact same thing the round before that with hand between us two).  I called and he showed K3.  7-7-10-7-10.  Not cool.
A little later in the tournament me and the same guy both have about ~60k.  Guy in late position limps, I call with QTo and BB checks.  Flop comes Q-6-4.  Checks around.  Turn 2.  I bet 15k into a pot of about 25k and he goes all in and limper folds.  I think for a little bit and he shows Q8 only to spike the 8 on the river. 
I think I would have been sitting about 10 of 35 had I won that hand.
The worst part about it in my opinion is that the guy that sucked out on those two hands which would have knocked him out is that he went on the win the tournament...

Why no one should play $3 tournies...

So I was messing around in a $3 tournament and had about 40x the BB.  I decided to push utg with AKo.  No a smart play but I don't care.  Button decides to call and BB decides to push.  I have a feeling I'm up against two big hands...42 soooted and 10 8 off.  The flop is 2 10 K and naturally I lose on the river.  Things like this piss me off and is why no one should ever play a $3.  It just messes with your head.

Poker, etc.

Nothing went right tonight in anything poker wise.  In better news, 2 of my friends qualified for the Olympic Trials Final in the Steeplechase on the 5th.  Go Corey and Jordan! Top 3 make the Olympic team.

Poker Tournies on FT

Hey all,
Just an idea that I had.  Maybe dumb maybe cool.  I don't know what you all will think. 
So like many people do for the WSOP I thought it could be cool if we all did some kind of weekly/monthly tournament, etc buying in for $10 or $20 where the winner would take all and try their luck at a $100 or $200 tourney.  Obviously would need about 10 people for this to work. 
Any thoughts???

$55 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (13th out of 873 Players)

Probably the luckiest I have been in a tourney.  Times I was all-in KJ beat AK and AQ sooted cracked AA.  I was having internet troubles the whole time and folded AA after a preflop raise when there were about 16 left.  Also had to fold QQ and 1010 because I didn't get back in time.  I'm going to buy a new computer today and probably throw this one out my window.  I donked off at the end.  The guy's betting pattern made it obvious that he had something but oh well I suppose.  I shouldn't have made it this far anyway.
