2nd at Ramblers, and the RETURN of the SKILLS GAME!
After reading Miami Don's blog and talking by email to him, I am going to give it a shot at bringing back the Skills Game. I always enjoyed it, and it gave me the opportunity to practice more on non-NLHE games. One minor change I am making (at least of the first tournament) is it will not be a double stack. I plan on having it doublestack for Pot-Limit tournaments, but not the Limit ones. Please feel free to leave me feedback on that idea, I will take everyone's thoughts into consideration. So go sign up already!!
I also managed to finish 2nd at NYRamblers HA tournament last night. I nice turnout of 17 players, and I entered the final table with a top 3 stack, but was on the left of Loretta8, who was apparently in God Mode last night during the tournament. Say what you will, usually I like being on the left of people with open ranges of hands they will play, but against someone in God Mode, hell no!!
Somehow I actually took the chip lead away from him briefly, but a couple of hands where I was likely outplayed, and a few others where I saw that I got rivered out of a pot, and I finsh 2nd. Great game Loretta8 (and to Lightning36 for finshing 3rd). So if Loretta8 was God last night, does that make me Chris Furgenson?
