Skillz Game Results and Leaderboard Update

Congratulation to CK for winning her BBT4 seat. For those that read her blog and know her, this wasnt too much of a surprise, as Riggstad even called it on her blog yesterday before the event!

NumbBono was runner-up again, but wins enough money to move into 1st place on the Skillz Game 2009 Leaderboard.

Next week is Pot Limit Omaha. Should be quicker, but a much better chance for massive suckouts.

My Brief Thoughts on BBT4

Seems like there is a lot of bloggers talking about the BBT4 lately, with their comments generally about the lack on attendance on some events as the three month event winds up the second month. Here is what I think: What exactly is anyone complaining about? I dont get it. We have this great event, that you can choose to play as many or as few as you want. No one is forcing you. People talk about how there was 140+ in the Mookie in other BBTs previously. Now there are only 80. Ok, I know everyone wants to beat the best competition they can, but considering the times they start, I would rather play 80 people then 140. And yes, the number have come down since the BBT started. I had 84 people in the first Skillz Game event, the lastest event had 45. Do you think I am worried about this? NO. I had some events previous to the BBT4 that had 8 people, having 45 is great. And again, I would rather play less time and have a better chance to get a seat in the TOC with the lesser people. Unlike previous BBT's I have played only 1/4 of the games this time around. Is it because I dont want to? No! I would love to play them all. But with the arrival of my little girl, a lot of things I used to have time to do, I dont anymore. I probably lucky that I now host the Skillz Game, as it gives me an excuse at home to play on Tuesday night. I think a lot of people are spending a lot more of their time on other things, either by choice (theirs or their family) or because things like the economy are making them chose to do so. So that is my 2 cents on this. I say just play the ones you can play, have fun with it, and do you best to win a tournament to get in the TOC. If you are able to play a bunch, then play for the points titles. But dont let everyone elses views of how the BBT4 jade how you feel about it!

Full Tilt Server Problem???

Crashed out of the Mookie last night, but actually came back from the dead in the Mookie, and was sitting 3rd with 3 players left when all of sudden, everything went dead, and the next 20 minutes I get the "trying to reconnect". All my other internet based stuff was working, so I was wondering if I was the only one that had this issue last night?

I also have decided to play more Limit Hold'em MTT in able to work on my game. I got a chance to play on Saturday night, but the only game I could find was a $4.00 buy in on PokerStars, which you take the chances of having a LOT of donkey play involved by your opponents. I am happy to say that I play very well, and will 558 players starting, I finished in 14th. I would have really love to have played at the final table, but I ran a good hand in the chip leader playing his big stack like it was no ones business, and eventually the cards ran cold for me.

Skillz Game Pimping....and WSOP Plans

Tonight is Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo. This should be a lot of fun to watch, not so much for those of us playing. Another BBT4 TOC seat goes to the winner. With my schedule lately, I need to win one of my own tournaments to get into that tournament.

As far as my plans for the World Series of Poker itself, I have managed to win enough playing my live tournments and off of Full Tilt and Bodog to be able to take the money and play one of the $1,500 events this year. As Mrs. CEM, Baby CEM, and myself are planning to visit family in California in early June, we decided to drive down and I will be playing in event #26 - Limit Hold'em that starts on Friday June 12. Hopefully if any of you bloggers are out there, and those that I know already live there, I can get a chance to finally meet some of you. So those are my big plans for this year, for all 5 of my readers (or am I overestimating my readership here?).

See you all tonight at the Skillz Game!

Comcast sucks....and Skillz Game Results 7 Stud

Comcast in my area was out for most of yesterday, so I ended up having to play using my Verizon Wireless aircard. Usually not a problem, but I live right up againist a mountain, so the aircard does not work at its best. I must have been disconnected 60 times, and I am truly sorry to those that had to encounter my problems. By the time i finally got some type of service from Comcast, I was already tilting in general, so I ended up going out way earlier then I should have.

Congratuation to Dueyv9 for the win and BBT4 seat.

Stats will be updated later this week.

Next week...... Pot Limit Omaha 8 or Better. Hide the children now, because the donking the will take place next week should be spectacular!

Upcoming news, I think I have made me plans for the WSOP, I will fill you guys in later this week.
