One of our own

When bloggers used to get together to play tournaments online, there was lots of talking junk. The money wasn't that important, but the fellowship and bragging rights were. Now it's one blogger, me, against 529 non-bloggers who are left in the Senior's Event No. 30 (out of a starting field of 3752). I hope you're happy that I'm well-placed to cash. Who knows? Maybe I'll get some luck and go deep.

I'm tweeting, so you can catch some highlights there when play resumes Saturday at 3:00 p.m. I'm memphismojo on twitter.

The disappointment of the day was when Poker Grump had three bad beats in a row and was eliminated. He plays way better than most of the geezers and I was sorry for his bad luck.

Above: Table after table of poker players -- that's what you see here. This shot was taken Thursday.

Above: Wonder what 24,800 in chips looks like? Here's my bag for Saturday's play.

  1. WPOM

    Took a look. It pays 396. Blind/ante getting there. Should start to move quickly. Play smart. Why'd I say that; it is obvious you have.

    Looks like it ended about 2AM. Relax and a light meal and we'll watch for you at the final table.

  2. Well, I guess I'm going to ave to fire up my Tweet feed today. Tear it up, Mojo!

  3. Wow! Nice run MOJO. Best of luck today.

  4. Found your tweeter last night right after I found grumps. 10 seconds later he was out. Glad I didn't have that effect on you!

    Hope you take it down!

  5. Great job, Dave! Rooting for you all the way!

  6. Nice photos, MOJO! I didn't know there were than many poker players in the world! :-)

    Good luck!

  7. Go Mojo! Been following you on twitter! Love the pic of the Rio!


    I'll say one thing, MOJO. Reading that link let me know what you were up against. I hadn't thought of the contest in those terms.

    Good going, sir.
