Dead Man Walking
The irony is pretty deep that my first blogger tourney win is in Stud. Insanely deep.
1st, I think stud might be my 6th best game after NLHE, OPL, O8, Razz and Triple Draw (which is not to say I am particularly good at any but the first).
2nd, I almost didn't play this because of the 1st thing and the fact that it started so late.
Perhaps not unrelated to the 1st thing, I got CJ-level luck at several spots.
Extra sweet as it capped a very good Sunday at the FT NL 100 tables, pushing me over the top today recovering from yesterday's beating and capping my best month since last September. Although as I said to Mrs. SoxLover, it wasn't about the cash, it was about the glory.
It was a blast, thanks especially to Mrs. SoxLover, my Auzzie railbird, and Flux for their moral support at the end.
Good timing to Katitude for getting my awesome new banner up just in time for I hope a few extra hits brought about by this fluke. See the flop...
