Tourney Time At Tin Man's
I got off to a quick start on the first hand, picking up pocket sixes and hitting a set on the flop. Edie, who was playing for only the second time, had limped with pocket aces. The turn paired the board, giving me a boat and half of Edie's stack by the time the hand was over.
Not too long after that hand, I felted Big Daddy. I limped from middle position with Very Josie's favorite hand (J-T) and had an open ended straight draw after the flop. Big Daddy bet about half the pot and I flatted. The turn gave me the nuts and after Big Daddy bet it again, I raised him all-in. His top pair left him drawing dead and he was the first one out.
Philly KO'd Edie in fifth and I toe-tagged Lil' Annie Okie in fourth. Tin Man took care of Philly, and since our stacks were about even, we decided to chop the $30 prize money, plus the $6 bounty since one of us was the bounty. As it turned out, it was me.
Philly was the big winner in the $2 buy-in cash game, crushing the table. I lost $6, but still walked away with a $6 profit on the night. Hopefully, we'll have a bigger turnout next week.
Till next time, win the flips.
