I've been reading posts Gary's on the DON Tourneys on Pokerstars and thought I'd give them a shot.
I seldom play on PS, mainly because I like the shorter blind levels on Full Tilt. The $6-18 man SNG on FT generally last only around 45 minutes.
I played two of the $10 level DONs last night, bricking one (card dead) and cashing in the second. One thing I noticed was how tight everyone was playing, especially as the bubble approached. Stealing blinds was relatively easy. Both tournaments lasted a little over an hour, longer than I like, but I think I can deal with it. I'll update to let you know how it goes.
J-Dawg's Poker Extravagnza was cancelled last night because we couldn't get enough players together, so I joined Ms. Lucki Duck for a going away party for one of her co-workers.
It was held at a local "Tex-Mex" restaurant that is known for their "White-Wings." If you're not familiar with "White-Wings," it's a grilled chicken breast wrapped around a cheese stuffed jalapano, then the chicken is wrapped in bacon and fried. OH MY it is slap yo Mamma good! It's served with a side of deep fried jalapanos, an adult beverage and the phone number of the local cardiologist!
Good food, good drink, good company, good time!
