$5.50 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (10th out of 11 Players)
went out with QQ. Onlinepokerlog busted me with Asomething. I was so excited to play that I didnt see the signs and didnt fold. Should have at least left a dollar so that i could play one more hand.

May 4, 2008, 12PM: Played 1 hour, 15 minutes, Made $54.50 at OPL INVITATIONAL
$5 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (1st out of 11 Players)
The new champ.....lol.
It was a lot of fun playing against all the OPL people, and some good poker friends. I was a few hands late, computer problems.
Just sat back and relaxed till I got in a heads up situation with pocket 7s. I flopped a set after making the standard raise and slow played. Luckily, the turn paired the board and hit my opp. middle pair to give him trips. So, doubled up there.
Later on, DeDobber was getting a bit too agro with his AX, and I caught him when I had AQ.
Then......the best hand of the day! Jesse is short stacked, bout 2400 I guess, I have almost 8k. I limp with my favorite hand, and he shoves except for one chip. I flop an open ender against his AA, and spike it on the turn. Sweet victory! I am sure Jesse would have chosen any other situation but that to lose to me. But, had to get that ten dollar bounty.
Got heads up and battled for a little while, where I finally crippled her with 78 suited, flopping a pair and flush draw. She turned the straight, and I turned the flush.
And the rest as they say is history. Lots of fun, can't wait to play it again, win or lose.
Thanks for the good times y'all!

May 4, 2008, 2AM: Played 1 hour, 30 minutes, Broke Even at Home Game
$30 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (3rd out of 6 Players)
This was strange and fun.
Playing a home game tourney with Jason and his Grad Student friends. They are interesting guys and I didn't really know any of them other than 2-10 minutes interactions if that.
Once they played poker their true colors came out.
Anyways.. we get down to 3 handed then I go out. The very next hand my friend gets JJ and makes a small raise and the agro kid shoves in with A2 and wins the tourney.
What is funny about this is the kid wouldn't take our money and handed it back to everyone. He is not wealthy nor a gambler.. he actually is really religious and said he had fun and could not except it.
He played great and played with a ton of heart and instincs. Fun stuff.

May 4, 2008, 12AM: Played 2 hours, 6 minutes, Made $586.00 at Full Tilt Poker
$24 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (1st out of 90 Players)
Hanging out in Napa...go drinking with my cousins? Sure, after I blow off $26 on this knockout tourney. 2 hours later I get my personal best win.
Knocked out 9 players for $36, plus $550 for the win.
So, how did it happen? Well, let's see where I got lucky:
Early on, knocked out two players with 77 (vs AA and AK).
I can live with one super lucky card every two hours and still be happy with the way I played. I can't say I deserved first in this thing, though. After the second break we were three handed, and I probably had QKA in my hand 90% of the time. Also: the chip leader played like a short stack, so I guess he didn't deserve to win either. I was so hot, though, that I even survived a crippling mistake to make the chips like 240k vs 30k and still came back and won it.
I wonder how I played in this hand, though. I folded to an all-in bet against a couple short stacks. I think it was probably the right move as I was stuck in the middle...then again, perhaps I fold as well if I'm last to act and two short stacks have called.

WSOP Fantasy League Update
RyanMo6707 and I have drafted our teams. Overall I like my team. Ryan probably has a little more well-rounded team when it comes to different games, but a few of them don't play a very full schedule of tournaments.
My Team--------------------RyanMo6707's Team
Daniel Negreanu------------Phil Ivey
Phil Hellmuth--------------Allen Cunningham
Chris Ferguson-------------Erik Seidel
JC Tran--------------------Johnny Chan
Barry Greenstein-----------Gus Hansen
Michael Binger-------------Scott Fischman
Mike Matusow---------------Scotty Nguyen
Scott Clements-------------Howard Lederer
Erik Lindgren--------------Michael Mizrachi
Jonathan Little------------Huck Seed
I think my team has an edge in NL Holdem, because a lot of the guys will play more events and play them better. Also, if I was torn before a few guys, I went with the guy I would like to root for the most. That will make the 6 week sweat (or however long it is these days) that much more fun to follow. Just over a month and I will hopefully have a points lead to post!

May 2, 2008, 8PM: Played 3 hours, Made $168.00 at Woody's
$2 No-Limit Texas Hold'em
Same place I played live last time I was home. My friend backed me last time, but this time I bought in for my own $160.
One of the first hands I played I was in the cut off with JJ...EVERY person limped and without any info on anyone at the table I decided to limp and just play it for set value. I didn't want to raise to $15 or $20 and still get 4 calls with no reads. Maybe not the most +EV decision available but I wanted to settle in and get a better feel of the table.
Anyways, flop came 863 two hearts. It checked to me and I bet $10. I got just one call. Turn was a 2s. I bet $20 and she called again. River was the 5h...she checked and I checked behind. She showed Q8 and I took about a $40 pot to start the night.
After that I couldn't really do much and was pretty card dead for a couple hours. I hovered between my initial $160 and $180 until my big hand of the night came up.
Super-loose pay-off-wizard raises from MP to $7 (small raise for the table). There were two callers and I called from the BB with 7h3h. Flop was 346 one heart. I checked and the initial raisor bet $10. There was one call on the button and I decided to call thinking a 7,5,or 3 were all good...and another heart might put me in a spot to draw for a huge pot.
Turn was a 5 (rainbow board)! I checked and the raisor bet $25. The button called and I made it $70. The raisor called and the button went all in for $5 more.....we each called. The river was a 2 putting a 6 high straight on the board. The guy in MP thought we were done since the button was all in and went to flip up his hand. I only saw an A before the dealer stopped him. I had $93 left and stuck it all in and MP insta-called playing the board :)
I took the side pot down but had to split with the button who had 77. Still I moved from about $160 to $340 in the pot. I was card dead for about 30 more minutes and decided to leave.
From a purely poker standpoint I should have stayed as I had a huge edge in the game. But $328 is a lot of money for me and I was happy with the result of taking this shot.
