Running Over a Table

Have you ever been at a poker table, where you are running so good, that it changes your style of play? Well that was me yesterday in a Stars $6.60 SnG. I was hitting flops left and right. I started off doubling up in the 1st hand with AK and then I get AA the second hand. After that I just ran over the table and it got to a point that I was making some really weird plays like raising out of position with rags because I just KNEW that I was going to hit the flop, and I did. Anyway I ended up winning the SnG eliminating 4 out of the 5 other players.

I also managed to Final Table a 180 $4.40 for the FCP Challenge. But I ended up busting in 9th when my two pair didn't hold up to an open ended straight draw. It was so sick because if I manage to win that pot I'd be up to almost 60k and with a decent shot of winning the whole thing. But oh well, I did scrape up 58 much needed points for the challenge. My partner has gone AWOL so I guess I'm on my own the rest of the way. A 4th place finish is still not out of the question but I'll have to run amazingly good with a few more Final Tables to even have a shot.


I wasn't up to much else over the weekend. I lost $50 on the Chivas v. Tigres game, which really sucked. I mean, it was essentially the best team in the league against the absolute worse. The final score was 0-0 but I went with the Money Line instead of the Pick, so the draw was scored a loss by Bodog.


Gonna go back to school tomorrow. Time to hit the books hard I guess. I've also gotta start looking for a way to complete the 40 hours of community service learning that I need for graduation. No idea what I'm going to do there.


I just finished writing an article for the News from the Felt section so make sure to check that out.

Nice win and FT finish in FCP. Wish I had time to get involved in that. Good luck with the community service, you could always coach a soccer team or basketball team for little kids.
