It's like a universal truth that there's no money as sweet as blogger money. Yeah, and for the next month I have Very Jose Poker Tournament bragging rights.
I think a tournament must take on the personality of its sponser -- in this case
Very Josie. It was perky and fun, just like she is.
At the end, I was heads up with Rakewell, and we battled forever. First he got lucky, then I got lucky. Neither of us could take out the other. On the last deal, we were all in pre-flop. He had ♠A ♥9 and I had ♥K ♦J, so he was a 57+% to 42+% favorite. The board ran out:
♣6 ♣J ♥3 ♥10 ♥2,
and my hand held. I didn't feel jubilation -- more like relief. Third-place went to Thorn in side, who played great, so congrats to him, too.
Rakewell had a Royal Flush. My best hand (above) was only measly quad aces. I play so well.
Above was a big hand. I had two players ahead of me go all in and I was looking at ♠K ♥K. Sure, I could have run into aces, but I'm not good enough to lay these cowboys down. Show me somebody who does that, and I'll show you a loser.
