Quick Update

Got to play in my second ever blogger event. Mookie put on the Big O Bird Flu Waffles tournament on Stars tonight. 23 registered for the fun, including Mookie, Mrs. Mookie, Waffles, Garthmeister, Sox Lover, Vegas Rico and others (sorry for not having the links). It was a blast. Garth showed up ready to prevent a junk kicking with his kevlar cup. I held my own, tho, and I'm pretty pleased with the way I played. I was definitely more loose and aggressive than I normally play, but being at a table with Mookie, Sir Waffles and Garth I felt I needed to up the aggression level. I was in the top 4 for a decent amount of time, and made it as high as 2nd place. The point where it changed for me and I started my downward slide was when Garth kicked me in the junk. It wasn't a bad beat by a long shot, but he definitely had me preflop. The only reason I was in was because of the ever-dangerous Big Blind Discount. I flopped a pair to what wound up being Garth's 2 overcards. In the end, we both rivered a flush, my Queen coming up short against his King flush. Still, the best moment of the tourney for me was this hand.
