Back in the Saddle


After a four and a half year hiatus, I finally played some online poker last night.

After making a small deposit on Bovada, I stuck my toe in the water and entered a $4 sit-n-go to get a feel of the site without a big investment.

This particular table played very tight, with the exception of one player who was two to my left. As it turned out, he and I were the last two standing and he had me out chipped by a 3-1 margin.

However, the blinds were high, so I was able to pull even with one double-up. I upped my aggression and took down the blinds several times building a nice chip lead.

He shoved for 3 big blinds with 8-9 soooted and I called with K-5. I paired my 5 on the flop, but he had a spade flush draw. No more shovels appeared and I won my first tourney.

Not much money, but a nice start nonetheless.

Till next time, win the flips.
