J-Dawgs Poker Extravaganza
From left to right on your radio dial in this $20 buy-in, dealer's choice limit game were J-Dawg, Ray-Ray, Bobby Dee, Stamps, Ollie the Accountant, Dealer Larry, Gentleman Jim and yours truly.
I got off to a good start when I took down the first hand with jacks over fives. I was winning the High Hand Jackpot with kings over fives when the following hand occurred. Bobby Dee was dealing a hand of Omaha High and tossed me 5-6-7-A, double suited. The flop was 4-5-K, with the 4 and 5 both popcorn (clubs). It just so happened my 6-7 were both popcorn, putting me on an open end straight flush draw. I bet my draw and got four customers. The turn was a blank, but I continued to bet on the come, building a nice pot with three callers. I hit Yahtzee on the river when the three of clubs made an appearance, completing my straight flush and giving me a tight grip on the HHJ.
I was the big winner on the night with a $29 profit. Gentleman Jim took the biggest hit, losing $35. Bobby Dee and Stamps both lost around $15, with Ray-Ray, Ollie, and Dealer Larry booking small wins.
Tomorrow is the first tournament in our Vegas Or Bust Poker League. There's quite a buzz about it among the players. I'm hoping to get off to a good start and finish in one of the top three positions. I'll write up a report sometime this weekend.
Till next time, win the flips.
