D’s Dealer’s Choice

Usually get the pants beat off me at D’s regular game, but for one reason or another we played a lot fewer hands with wild cards than we usually do and I managed to take down a couple of large pots, with nearly back-to-back queen-high full houses. I was up three full buy-ins and very close to another full house when I called an all-in from M—who’d just bought back in because I’d busted him—and I lost nearly a buy-in when I missed and his straight held.

Four hours. +180% ROI.

Only 29 winning days before EPT Prague.

Hands Chopped Off

D’s Dealer Choice Game

Quite the turnaround from the weekend tournament. Three hours of mixed games essentially wiped out the cash game profits from the other night. I won two hands, one of them because D convinced everyone to evaluate a Badugi hand incorrectly and the other only marginally because I split the low of an Omaha pot with Ax2x3x4x5x. Down 2.5 buy-ins.

Since it was close by, I stopped by The Final Table to see if they had enough people for their advertised 11pm turbo but there were just a couple tables playing. Ran into one of the dealers I’d originally met at PPC who was managing the place and who actually remembered the card cover I’ve often used, which is the helmet from my Simpsons®-brand Professor Frink figurine.
