WWdN: Not The lives!

Thanks to Biggestron, Surflexus and Mookie, we managed to get a record 360% attendance at tonights WWdN: Not The tournament. We even managed to get our favorite geek and namesake to show up and enjoy the game with us. I also want to thank Jay (L0K1) who I keep asking to set these things up for us.

The event was attended by a regular whos-who of the blogger community.

In the style of many blogger tournaments, the Hammer was spotted on many occasions. This particular occasion was just a little stressful to me.

darval: posts big blind 50
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to darval [2h 7d]
Gilain: raises 150 to 200
darval: raises 300 to 500
Gilain: calls 300
*** FLOP *** [Th Kc 8c]
darval: bets 500
Gilain: calls 500
*** TURN *** [Th Kc 8c] [9s]
darval: bets 2260 and is all-in

Really long delay - sweat drips onto my eyes and I can't see.

Gilain: folds
darval collected 2025 from pot
darval: shows [2h 7d] (high card King)
Gilain said, "damn it!"
Garthmeister said, "HAMMER!"
Quatloos said, "ya!"
darval said, "now that is way way too stressful.."

After what seemed like an awful long game - personally I think these bloggers are wimpier than they claim to be - we finally managed to get past the bubble. I would like to thank all those who arranged for me to win the tournament in appreciation.

Stay tuned for the same thing, same time next week. Thanks once again for playing.

For the record, I had AJ.

I know I hate it when I fold a stronger hand to the Hammer. ;-) But that is part of the fun of playing blogger tournies. You did great overall tho.

You hosted the event AND won it??

Online poker is SO rigged...LOLOL!!

Seriously, congrats on the win! Good to see you had a nice turnout.

Thanks, too, for telling me to put a stitch in my gash yesterday. I turned it around last night and ended up just about even for the weekend.
