Deep Runs at the WSOP

I want to give a couple shout-outs to two friends who had deep runs this week at the WSOP.

My buddy Larry (known as Stamps, because he's a mailman) finished 42nd out of over 2,000 in Event 37, a $1,000 NLHE tournament. Stamps was representing our Vegas or Bust Poker League, so the league players will divide half of his $6,000+ cash, which means moi will make a little payola on his success.

Another friend, David (known as Memphis Mojo, because he lives in...Florida?) final-tabled the Super Seniors Event, finishing 7th for a tidy $34k payout. You can read all about it by clicking HERE. 



Not only has Mojo now final-tabled two WSOP tournaments, he has also won our NFL Picks Contest twice. Truly a superstar in our midst.

Congratulations to both players! I'll give it a shot on July 3rd, (representing our league) knowing you two will be a hard act to follow.

Till next time, win the flips.

Winning Ugly

It wasn't pretty, but it was effective.

Entering the final league tournament, Tin Man and I were tied for second in the standings, with Ranger Rick hot on our tails, and both Ray Ray and Stacy within range.

Stamps clinched first place two months ago, leaving just one WSOP seat available. With half the league in contention for the second seat, several things would have to go my way in order to win the trip to Vegas and entry into the WSOP.

The night started well for me as I won a nice pot early with a rivered two pair. Ranger Rick and Stacy both dropped out early, leaving only Ray Ray, Tin Man, and myself in the running. Now that the water wasn't quite as muddy, I was able to focus on my two main opponents. Ray Ray trailed Tin Man and myself by five points, so I set my sights on Tin Man, figuring if I could finish ahead of him, Ray would have to win the tournament to have any chance of catching me. Stamps had also busted early, so we were down to six players.

As blinds reached $50-100 ($1,500 starting stack), Tin Man was down to around 1,000 chips and I had chipped up to 2,000. In addition, I was seated two to the left of him, giving me the position advantage on most hands.

I lost over 600 chips when I open-raised to 250 from middle position with A-J. I got calls from both blinds and we saw a flop of K-Q-5. Both blinds checked and I c-bet 350. Big Daddy called from the SB and the BB mucked.

We both checked the turn and river and Big Daddy turned over A-Q for the win.

Tin Man and I took turns folding for quite a while, both knowing our next hand could well be our last. He was finally forced to go all-in blind for his last 200 chips and received four callers. If he won he would have 1,000 chips and the luxury of folding for another orbit around the table.

I had 450 chips at this point, so I knew this hand wold probably decide which one of us would win the second seat. Tin Man never looked at his cards, so we would all find out together.

The board ran out 7-8-Q-A-3, with no flushes possible. Ray-Ray showed a pair of eights and everyone else folded. Now it was time for the moment of truth. Tin Man turned over the first card which was a 4.

One card away.

The second card was a harmless 6, and suddenly it was over.

With fifth place in the tournament secured, it gave me 6 points for a total of 68 on the season. Even if Ray Ray won the tourney, the most he could get was 67 points.

Two hands later I pushed my final 450 chips in with A-4. I don't remember what the board was, only that I lost the hand and finished fifth.

CLICK HERE to view the final standings.

I think I'll probably play in Event 63 ($1,000 NLHE) on July 3rd. Ms. Duck is checking rates as you read this.

After not winning a seat last year, it'll be nice to play at the Rio once again.

Till next time, win the flips.

Vegas or Bust Poker League

The fifth season of our Vegas or Bust Poker League wraps up on April 14th. We began last May, playing one tournament per month, and will send the two players with the most points to Las Vegas to play in the WSOP this summer.

I have run bad through most of the season, seemingly never catching a break. I generally play tight during the early portion of tournaments, waiting for the other players to knock each other out. My problem this season was that whenever a short stack would get his or her chips in the middle, they would almost always win. Then the blind levels would get high and when I pushed it seems I would always lose, regardless who had the best hand going in. I don't know how many times I had the best of it going in and lost, but it was well above the norm.

Like I said, running bad.

Going into last month's tournament I was 6 points "out of the money," and needed quite a few things to go right in order to have any chance at winning a seat. You receive a point for each position you finish in the tournament. First place is worth 10 points, second 9, third 8, etc. Stamps has run away with the first seat, so the other nine of us are playing for the remaining seat. There were several players between me and second place, so I needed to win the tournament and hope all of them bust out early.

I knocked out Thom first, and he was one of the players ahead of me. He pushed with a K-Q offsuit and I called with A-K off. Through most of the season I would lose here, even though I had a dominate hand. I was waiting for the Q to hit the board to send me home, but we both paired the king and my hand held.

"Maybe things will finally go my way," I thought.

By the time the smoke cleared at the end of the evening, I had knocked out all the players in front of me, including Tin Man, who was second in the league, and was able to win the tournament.

My win was worth 10 points, and combined with Tin Man's seventh-place finish, left us tied for second place with one tournament left. The standings are close, with several players in contention for the second seat, but Tin Man will be the one in my cross-hairs. I'm hoping my new found "run good" will stay with me one more time!

Till next time, win the flips.

Back to Reality

It was back to reality as Ms. Duck and I returned home last Saturday after a relaxing week in Las Vegas. We caught a Southwest flight from Austin the previous Saturday and arrived at McCarren a few minutes late. Our bags were among the first off the plane, so we grabbed them and caught the shuttle to the Rental Car Center.


We usually use Alamo, but Ms. Duck found a better deal with Thrifty and decided to give them a try. We won't make that mistake again. I won't bore you with the details, let's just say there were quite a few "add-ons" that weren't mentioned on their website. Thrifty, Dollar, and Hertz are all one in the same, so we won't be using any of the three on future trips.

Thrifty? Not so much.
We stayed at Sam's Town the first couple of nights because prices on the strip were a little rich for our blood on the weekend. Although the rooms are nothing to write home about, I always enjoy playing in their casino. Monday, which was Ms. Duck's birthday, we moved camp to the Encore.

Ms. Duck enjoying the view from our room at the Encore.
Since it was her birthday trip, I didn't get in as much poker as I had hoped, but we ate well (too well) and I visited more stores than I cared to. I did find time to play some craps at the Silverton (lost), some blackjack at Sam's (won), and some poker at Green Valley Ranch (won).

Ms. Duck playing a 100 Hand video poker machine at the
Venetian. Because one hand at a time is never enough!
I also won a nice payout at Plant Ho by betting on Calgary to win their hockey game. Our last day I placed several futures bets on the over/under for wins by MLB teams. I bet the under on Minnesota (75 wins), Cincinnati (71 1/2 wins), and Oakland (74 1/2 wins). I also bet the over on the Cubbies (95 1/2 wins). If I'm fortunate enough to win them all, my next trip will be funded.

I hit a nice hand on a Deuces Wild machine at the Orleans.
My birthday is in late October. Sounds like a good time to go pick up my loot!

Vegas Bound!


Ms. Duck and I are taking a much-needed vacation in Las Vegas.

We leave tomorrow from Austin and will spend a couple days at Sam's Town before moving to the Encore on Monday, which is also Ms. Duck's birthday..

I hope to share a few stories of big pots at the poker tables and a win or two on those sweet, sweet video poker machines. :)

SNG Challenge- Race to 100


My challenge at the beginning of 2016 was to win at least 100 sit and go tournaments on Bovada before the end of the year. However, Bovada was out of business by late summer and my account was transferred to Ignition.

It took a couple months to hit my stride, but I finally settled on their 6 man, Extreme Turbo tournaments which turned out to be very lucrative. By the end of December I had racked up 120 wins.

Nice.

Here's the final win of the year.



So, I guess the goal in 2017 will be 125 wins.

Till next time, win the flips.
