February 12, 2008, 6PM: Played 27 minutes, Broke Even at Poker Stars
Free-Roll No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (1,150th out of 1636 Players)

I did this in my other blog I just started... I think it applies here better though.  I dumbed it down incase someone decided to read.
I’ve decided to do play by occasional play of my most recent online poker tournament… this may be a long post, or I could do something shitty and it could be a short post. All of that being said, the fact that I’ve sucked recently, dictates that this be a free roll.
Being that it’s a free roll, a few things you should know:
1) It’s free.
2) People are maniacs.
3) The prize is really small for a large amount of dodging craziness and getting fortunate… but, as I said, it’s free.
The winner will receive a remarkable grand prize of $46.00 for navigating a field of 1636 overwhelmingly incompetent players.
We are starting at a table filled with remarkable luminaries of the poker world such as me (Steveinho), lvtogolf from Chesapeake, known for his love of golfing, and badlukjoe straight out of Gaffney, South Carolina, who’s unluckiness is notorious to anyone who’s ever played on Poker Stars.
Brian Voyetek, a Denver Broncos fan from Perris, is also stationed at the table and uses his full name, as though he would be recognized for some reason.
2nd hand of the tournament and I decided it’d be nice to try to steal a pot with 10-7 of hearts in my hand. To put 10-7 of hearts into perspective, it’s kind of like having… well, shit. Someone called me, the cards came out 9-J-9, which really isn’t any good. They bet, I decided to bluff and raise them… they bet more and I pussied out.
They were kind enough to share that their hand was AJ by pushing the “show hand to retard who bluffed you” button, and I responded by lying about the cards in my hand due to it being necessary for a poker player to have no class.
-8 minutes in. I’ve decided I need pumped up. Wu-Tang will be put on. If I pump myself up too much, I will turn to Radiohead which, unfortunately, pumps me up sometimes too.
-18 minutes in and 360+ players have been eliminated, owing to the cut throat prowess of all the skilled players in this event. 1/3rd of my stack is gone due to whiffing every time I raise and being called by at least 3 players each time. Boo hoo for me.
-26 minutes. Well, got my best hand of the night… AK suited. Bet early, got raised, shoved for my wittle itty-bitty stack by a guy who lost possibly the funniest pot in poker history the hand before and he, unfortunately, has pocket Kings. Need an A or a J for a while and, alas, it comes not to be.
This comes one hand after I insulted the player who busted me. Class and elegance escapes me.
1150 out of 1636. I guess the dream will have to wait one more day.

February 1, 2008, 3PM:

This game is still in play, I'm curious for a reaction or two.
Seat 1: Steveinho (1,805)
Seat 2: MAMU13 (1,805)
Seat 3: BastianBooger (1,315)
Seat 4: ZCHIPMAGNETZ (1,140)
Seat 5: cocofran18 (1,465)
Seat 6: maiore (1,470)
Steveinho posts the small blind of 20
MAMU13 posts the big blind of 40
The button is in seat #6
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to Steveinho [8h 9h]
BastianBooger folds
cocofran18 raises to 80
maiore folds
Steveinho calls 60
MAMU13 calls 40
*** FLOP *** [7s 4h 5h]
Steveinho checks
Now, let me just open by saying that I was hoping for a continuation bet here, because I planning on semi-bluffing with a big raise, and committing myself if anyone else came over the top.
Gutterball straight-draw in addition to my flush draw seemed lovely enough to get my money involved with.  Best case scenario, all fold... worst case, I'm in with a pretty damn good drawing hand.
MAMU13 has 15 seconds left to act
MAMU13 checks
cocofran18 checks
*** TURN *** [7s 4h 5h] [Tc]
Steveinho checks
MAMU13 checks
cocofran18 folds
Steveinho calls 320
Okay, it was a pot bet... I'm putting him on a pair of 10s.  I'm just looking for my draw to hit at this point.  It might not be a good money play, but it was too temping to lay down now that I was open-ended.
MAMU13 raises to 1,600
ZCHIPMAGNETZ calls 740, and is all in
Steveinho has 15 seconds left to act
Steveinho has requested TIME
My process is, if I hit my hand... it is definitely the best hand... if a 6 or a J hits, my straight is best... and I don't think either has a flush draw... so I'm saying to myself that, at best, I have 15 outs... at worst, a heart or a jack are gone... I'm thinking that, worst case, I'm looking at 12-13 outs.
I know the raise has to be a set, or a straight... I leaned towards straight, but didn't put set out of the equation.
So, it's still the same thing, hand hits... I win... hand misses, I lose.
I put the money in to get a huge stack early.
Steveinho: god, i'm behind, but i'm getting odds
Steveinho raises to 1,725, and is all in
MAMU13 calls 125, and is all in
Steveinho shows [8h 9h]
MAMU13 shows [3c 6d]
ZCHIPMAGNETZ shows [9c Td]
*** RIVER *** [7s 4h 5h Tc] [Kh]
Steveinho shows a flush, King high
MAMU13 shows a straight, Seven high
Steveinho wins the side pot (1,330) with a flush, King high
ZCHIPMAGNETZ shows a pair of Tens
Steveinho wins the main pot (3,500) with a flush, King high
MAMU13 stands up
Now, I'm not saying I played this hand well... I'm not sure.  Turns out, with his 3-6 straight made, a 2-1 dog, while the retard with 10-9 is drawing dead.

Call me superstitous...

Not sure that there's been any real level of concern over my lack of daily entries... I was playing a shit load in October and November, but started to run cold. 
At first I started to blame it on blogging, kind of like having a shirt be unlucky... so, I did the SMART thing.  No, I didn't take a break, I just stopped blogging.
Kept playing, whittled my online account down a fair bit... so once December hit, I stopped playing online except for the random day to give myself a break and concentrate on finishing school.
Fellow player on here staked me a few times at live games, and that was the only way I was really getting money for rent and random out nights.
I finally got my bachelor's in Journalism in December and have been happily unemployed since.  I've been gradually picking up the online play more, but I'm reallllly encountering a lot of variance... both in my play and the cards.
Live I was running relatively well and getting paid off on semi-decent hands, so I kept getting staked... but the last three times I've sat down have ended pretty poorly... so, kind of on the look out for something part-time to fund the poker as well as kill time until I get a "real" job.
So... basically I stopped blogging because I blamed it for me running bad.  Smart, I know.
If you'll have me back, I'll eagerly run my post count up a ridiculous amount.

November 16, 2007, 7PM: Played 7 hours, Made $11.00 at Full Tilt
$5 Buy-In HORSE Tournament (2nd out of 69 Players)

i was down big yesterday... then went online when i was half loaded and lost some more until i got tracktion in two tournaments
one was horse, where i finished 2nd because i blew it heads up
one was a 45 sng where i also blew it heads up
the horse was the 2nd consecutive horse tourney i final tabled on... won the last one... disappointed because i know i was much better than the guy i was heads up with, i just got myself in some stupid limit hold'em situations

November 15, 2007, 12AM: Played 4 hours, Made $225.00 at Full Tilt
$5 Buy-In HORSE Tournament (1st out of 122 Players)

i'm going to incorporate the other small cashes i had tonight as well... played well, minimal bad beating...
but man did i fucking own in horse tonight... even after i was heads up with 160k against a guy at 11k who came back and took a chip lead after hitting 2 outers on all ins twice on me... one on the river
but he was an aggro retard... and i took him hard during omaha hi/lo... once calling his opening bet and bet the whole way down on a Q-10-Q-5-3 board... i had a pair of 10s, he had a pair of 9s in the hole
another i took a huge scoop with 2-3-J-10 when i hit broadway and nutlow... flush draw on the board but he only had two pair (wtf?)
put him back to crippled... we both had aces in the hole next hand but my low draw was significantly better... and it hit a flush
yay for stephen
