Fall Poker Classic kicks off
I played for more than six hours to be knocked out just before the diner break. From late position, I shoved with ♠9 ♠5 (kids, don't try this at home) to try and pick up the blinds and antes. The big blind called with A-J. The flop was K-9-5, two pair! The turn was a queen and the river a 10, however, to give the villain a Broadway straight -- boo.
I'm going to try Day 1B tomorrow. If I advance to Sunday, then good, but if not, then I'll watch football. There are more events on the schedule.
I talked to Jusdealem. Her husband played in the same event I did -- not sure how he did. She entered the mega-satellite, and looked to be doing well when I exited.
EDIT: I found out later that Jusdealem won a seat into the Main Event. Congrats to her, that's awesome!
There was a Chris Moneymaker sighting. I outlasted him woot.
