When I talked with lightning36 last weekend, he asked me why I didn't play in the blogger tournaments. I suppose I could have said that I play live tournaments a lot instead, but I didn't really have a good answer.
So, tonight I played The Mookie. There were 25
Twice that worked in my favor. One blogger gave me all his chips when he had 10-10 and the board was K-X-X and I checked to him and he bet big. After he moved all in on fourth street, I called and turned over ♠K ♣K for top set.
The other time, a player raised before the flop with J-J. I called from the blinds. When the flop was K-Q-X, he bet, and I called. The turn was a rag that couldn't have helped either of us, and he fired a second bullet. He moved all in on the river -- overcards didn't scare him. I stubbornly called, and showed ♣A ♥K. For once, TPTK was the nuts.
After that, I went card dead and my stack eroded. When there were five of us, I was the shortstack, and NumBono (the other short stack) moved all in for the zillionith time. I made a desparation call with ♠A ♠5. He actually had something this time: 8-8, and his hand held up -- gg me.
