WSOP Baby!

(This is a re-post from July, 2010)

I flew to Vegas last week to play in my first WSOP, event #54, NLHE with a $1000 buy-in.

Also on my agenda was a lunch date with Jonathan Little and a few of the coaches from the FloatTheTurn.com website, which was providing my buy-in and three nights at the Rio.

Nice!

Ms. Duck and I enjoyed meeting and discussing poker with the FTT crew. In addition to Jonathan (who would Final Table a WSOP limit hold 'em tournament the next day, cashing for $73,000+) were JOhnDaytOn, JasonKobe, and HotJenny.


(L to R: Lucki Duck, Jon Little, JOhnDaytOn, JasonKobe, HotJenny and husband Collin)

JOhnDaytOn specializes in NLHE, 16 tabling the $55 sit and goes on Pokerstars. HotJenny's forte' is the Super Turbos on Full Tilt, also 16 tabling at the $50-60 level. JasonKobe plays the $50 and $100 Double or Nothing Tourneys on Pokerstars, juggling an incredible 30-35 tables at a time! All of them are in their mid 20s, living the high life and making a living at poker. Fun times and I learned a lot from each of them!

As a bonus, Johnny Chan was eating a couple tables over from us.

I signed up a day early for my event and once my seat was assigned, I went to find my table so I wouldn't have to look for it on the day of the tourney. While there I saw Phil Ivey and Vanessa Russo playing. Too cool!

Event #54 began at noon last Thursday. It was a four day tournament, with two day ones (A and B). The plan was to play down to 15% of the field on the first day, with day two on Saturday, and wrapping up the event on Sunday.

My goals were:
1) Win a hand.
2) Make the first break (two hours in).
3) Make the dinner break (six hours in).
4) Make the second day.
5) Cash.
6) Make the final table.
7) Win a bracelet!

The starting stack size was 3,000 chips, with the blinds at 25-25, and one hour levels. Lots of time to play some poker! Of the almost 3,900 players in the tourney, 3,100+ were playing on this day 1A.

I reached my first goal on the third hand, checking my BB with QT offsuit. The flop gave me a gutter straight draw, which hit on the turn. I bet and the villian folded.

I lost a fair amount of chips when I raised from middle position with pocket nines and was called by the BB. I c-bet a Q-4-Q flop after the BB checked, but was then check-raised. I folded. I know it sounds nitty, but I didn't want to go down with this hand and decided to wait for a better situation.

Our table broke just before the first break and I was moved to this guy's table!


I knew right away that this was gonna be an interesting table!

Just a few hands in we hit the break and I had accomplished my second goal, limping in with 2,400 chips.

During the break, there were two bracelets awarded from previous events. One went to Mike Lee and a second to Chance Hornung. The best part was the playing of the National Anthem, as both winners were from the states.

Blinds were up to 50-100 at level three. I was still playing tight aggressive poker, picking up a few pots, but not gaining any traction. The guy to my left was extremely tight, playing only three hands in the 2+ hours we played together. His hands were JJ, QQ, and KK, hitting sets on the flop all three times. Amazingly, he just check-called the hand every time, winning the minimum amount possible.

As the blinds eroded my stack, I pushed from late position for 12 BB with JJ and was called by the big blind's 66. Thankfully, the jacks held and I hit the second break shortly after with 2,200 chips.

About a half hour into level five our table broke and I was moved again. With blinds at 100-200 and a 25 chip ante, I was card dead and getting short, waiting for an opportunity to push and double up. I was the BB when the button open raised 10x the big blind, screaming of a steal attempt. The first card I saw in my hand was an ace and I knew I would push this hand, but I was hoping my kicker would be good, just in case the villian had a hand. I slowly squeezed out the second card, another ace... sah-weet! I pushed and was called by the BB's K4 offsuit. He hit his four on the flop, and the turn was an ugly K, giving him two pair.

Did I mention that the flop also had two eights, thus giving me aces-up and the double up!

Whew.

Now at level six (100-200, 50 ante), the short-stack raised 3X. I looked down at AJ and pushed my 3,200 chip stack. The blinds folded and the raiser insta-called. "Uh-Oh," I thought to myself, but he tabled AT and my hand held, putting me above 6,000 chips for the first time in the tournament.

I reached my third goal when I went on the dinner break with 5,400 chips. The field had dwindled from 3,100+ down to 630 at the break.

Apparently, the dealer removed all the face cards from the deck while I was at dinner, because I didn't see one for the next hour. With the blinds climbing, I was able to steal a few pots, but my stack continued to shrink. Shortly after moving into level eight, two players with HUGE stacks were moved to my table and sitting to my left, so the stealing portion of my game was over.

My final hand was an open shove with QT offsuit for seven BB from the cutoff. One of the big stacks called with A6 offsuit. I didn't improve on the flop, but the villian had a straight draw which he hit on the turn and my World Series was over.

As I was leaving the room, the dealers were instructed to start racking chips, because day 1A was over. As Maxwell Smart might say, "Missed day 2 by THIS much!"

My final tally was 450th out of 3,138 day 1A players. Not too bad for my first try.

Known players in event #54 were Chris Ferguson, Layne Flack, Maria Ho, Jeff Madson (former WSOP Player of the Year), Scott Montgomery, Men "The Master" Nguyen, Dennis Phillips, Gavin Smith, Jennifer Tilly, and Jerry Yang. Unfortunately, none were at my tables, so I didn't get the opportunity to play against them.

Overall, a great trip that will not be soon forgotten!

Texas Lottery Chronicles- "Holiday Magic"

Welcome to another adventure in minus EV gambling, otherwise known as the Texas Lottery.



Today's lucky ticket is titled "Holiday Magic" and since it's the Christmas season, I decided to splurge and purchase a $10 ticket. As the old saying goes, "You gotta bet big to win big!"

Of course, my poker buddy Philly Phanatic says, "The more you bet, the more you can lose." Let's hope we don't have to use that quote again today.

The top prize in "Holiday Magic" is $250 large, which would certainly be magical. Odds of winning a prize (which includes break even prizes) is 3.17/1. Odds of hitting the big one is 690,000/1, so I guess I won't start counting my chickens just yet.

As is the case in all the scratch off tickets, you get a set of "winning numbers" (five this time), and you have to match your number with one of the prize numbers. If you match, you win that prize. Should you get a "bell" symbol, your prize amount is multiplied tenfold. Sweet! Should you reveal a wreath, then you win ALL the prizes on the ticket. SAH-WEET!!!

So, without further adieu, let's see what our numbers are, and scratch off the top line to see if we have any winners. Good luck us!


The first line looks like a loser, so let's cross our fingers and move on.


 We had a lot of big amounts on the second line, but once again we whiffed.

Four lines left, so on we go!


 Another swing and a miss on the third line, so we can safely say that the top half of the ticket sucked. Let's hope the bottom half is better.


Looks like line four is bringing more pain. The prizes are noticeably smaller, but the results are still the same...zippo!

Line five is next.


The losing streak continues and we're in danger of being shut out. Not too Christmasy of the state of Texas.

And now for the final line.


More of the same. We had a shot at over $315,000 in prizes.


0 for 315,000. That's just depressing.

Till next time, hope your's is a winner!


Tickets                      10
Winners                     2
Investment             $55.00
Winnings                $15.00
Net                      ($40.00)

Texas Lottery Chronicles- "Solid Gold"


 Today's $5 scratch-off ticket is titled "Solid Gold." According to the headline on the ticket we can win up to 20 times! What it doesn't mention is that we can also lose up to 20 times. Ticket odds are 3.24-1, so we have an uphill battle.

To score on our ticket, we have to match one of our numbers with the "Winning" numbers on the upper half of the layout. Should a "$" symbol appear, we win the prize and if a "$$" shows, our prize amount doubles.

 "Yeah Baby!!!"


Cross your fingers...here we go!

After scratching-off the top row, it looks like we can change the headline to "Win Up To 15 Times!" No matches to be seen here.


On to line #2.

Well, that line sucked. Halfway thru and this ticket is bringin' the pain. Let's hope for a strong second half!


Looks like another whiff on the third line, so now we're down to a "Hail Mary" pass to see if we can pull a couple bucks out of this sucker.


And our desperation pass is incomplete and we have to deal with another losing ticket. At least the state of Texas adds a few coins to the coffers. Image how much they could make if gambling was legalized here.


"What about lotto tickets?" you ask. Well, obviously scratch offs are a game of skill, otherwise allowing them would be hypocritical of the state. Duh.

Time to give this loser a proper burial.


Till next time, hope yours is a winner!

Tickets                       9
Winners                     2
Investment             $45.00
Winnings                $15.00
Net                      ($30.00)

Vegas or Bust Poker League





We completed our seventh of 12 league tournaments last Friday at Tin Man's home. At stake is two seats to the 2015 WSOP at the Rio in Las Vegas.

I had a third place finish last month, but the previous two hadn't been too kind to me.

In the August tourney I open-raised from the cut off with a medium-strength hand and was called by Tin Man, who was the BB.

Tin Man put out a small feeler bet on a T-5-A rainbow board. His betting pattern is pretty reliable, so I put him on middle pair and raised him. I was surprised when he called, but shot another bullet on the turn when a blank hit. Tin Man check-called. The river was another blank and after he checked, I shoved the remainder of my chips, putting maximum pressure on him.

To my dismay, he said, "I guess I'm gonna have to double you up buddy. I call."

I turned over my king high hand and Tin Man showed me the second pair hand I had put him on.

"Lil' Annie Okie (his wife) told me I needed to stick with my hands longer," he said as I headed for the rail with a ninth-place finish.

Thank Annie.

I finished eighth in the September tournament, but it was just a case of being card dead for two hours. I finally shoved for 7 BB with A-J and ran into Big Daddy's A-Q. Buh-bye.

Obviously, I needed a strong finish to remain in the thick of things and was fortunate to get it.

Bobby Dee was the first to go when his A-K got run down by Ollie the Accountant's Q-J. J-Dawg was next to fall, playing very few hands and finally made a stand with pocket sevens. Ranger Rick called with A-J and paired his ace on the flop and then hit a third one on the river just to show off.

Annie finished eight and Big Daddy seventh. Blinds were getting big ($200-400) with only $15K in chips on the table, so the shoves became commonplace.

Stamps fell on his sword in sixth, and Ollie was toe-tagged in fifth. Tin Man busted in fourth shortly thereafter.

Once we were three-handed, the chips seemed to make a circle around the table as we traded jabs. I finally felted Rick when my A-9 held up over his A-7 shove.

A-7 ended up being a big hand for me on this night as I shoved with it against Philly Fanatic when we were heads-up. Philly quickly called with A-J and I knew I was in trouble.

I had him covered, but only by a few chips, so this one was for the tournament. A seven on the flop turned the tables and the final nail came on the turn when another one showed its face.

Hey, it's better to be lucky than good! Righr?

I was pleased to take this one down. The win puts me in position to make a run at my third consecutive title.

CLICK HERE for the latest standings.

Till next time, win the flips.

Cancer Returns- Update

I haven't updated Mom's progress in a while, mostly because there hasn't been any major changes over the last few weeks.

She completed her chemo and radiation almost six weeks ago and is making some progress, albeit very slow. Last week was the first time since this started that she mentioned she was feeling a little better. It's a little thing, but I'll take it.

She had a catscan three weeks ago that showed the lymph nodes had shrunk, which is definitely a good sign, and her petscan (which checks specifically for cancerous cells) will be in January. So we wait.

She uses her walker to move around her house, and is now on oxygen 24/7. My younger sister and her husband moved in early last month to help her out until she gets strong enough to take care of herself.

Don't get me wrong, it's certainly not all rainbows and lollipops, but the small improvement she has made is encouraging.

Once again, thank you for your inquiries as to how she's doing and your good wishes for her. Please keep those good vibes, positive energy, and prayers headed her way.

Cancer sucks.
