nickels and dimes
i realize that i have abused this blog, treating it to mere hit-and-runs, highlighting the highs, lowlighting the lows, but generally not serving the purpose of telling a good tale (or at least an entry worthy of actual reading.)

but today i shall attempt to overcome past faults and foibles and present something worthy of interest, to wit: nickels and dimes.

highlight below for a glimpse into the post title:
(warning: WSOP '05 info below)

the final nine!

Seat 1: Joseph Hachem - $5.42M
Seat 2: Andrew Black - $8.14M
Seat 3: Tex Barch - $9.33M
Seat 4: Daniel Bergsdorf - $5.27M
Seat 5: Mike Matusow - $7.41M
Seat 6: Aaron Kanter - $10.7M
Seat 7: Brad Kondracki - $1.18M
Seat 8: Steve Dannenmann - $5.46M
Seat 9: Scott Lazar - $3.37M

sadly, both Raymer and Ivey got knocked out. to be honest though, i would like to see Matusow win it. i think it would be a good comeback for him and might exercise some demons.

cards are in the air today at 4PM PST. check out for up-to-the-minute details. of course, the venerable Pauly has his own live updates too!

in other news, i took two Ultram last night prior to sitting down for the Poker Stars $11+Rebuys tourney. i ended up donking out 593rd out of 1149 entries. the pills and G&Ts made me pretty "loose/aggressive". heh.

off for more work...updates maybe later!

Full Tilt's $.50/$1 NLHE: -63BB (-$63)

to further my good play, i then promptly got involved in the hand below and ruined my chances in the Poker Stars $11+Rebuys tourney:

how we do


i had the opportunity to not call an all-in with my AKo. i could have passed, waiting to hit place #99, which paid out the minimum - $70.45 (i spent $31 on this tourney - one rebuy, and the add-on.) instead, i chose to gamble. why? b/c the $70 wouldn't pay my bar tab from saturday night; the first prize of $11K would pay my 2006 taxes and buy me a motorcycle - you make that call.

as for me and my house, we'll follow the gamble.
