Skillz Game - Limit Stud 8 or Better - VOIDED

Far smaller turnout then I expected, lots of people enjoying the summer or in Vegas, as no one but me signed up, and Full Tilt voided the tournament.

We will try again next week, with Pot Limit Omaha Hi

Skillz Game Tonight - Limit Stud 8 or Better

Less players with everyone busy with Summer things or the World Series. Hope that those of you that can make it out tonight do!

And, since I have really nothing else going on but my family, here is a picture of my 6 1/2 month old daughter Katie:

Skillz Game Results - Limit Razz

12 runners on Tuesday night, not too bad of a turn out.
I donked out in 10th, poker burnout plus the fact that I suck at Razz.

Next week will be Limit Stud Hi/Lo.

No updates on here from me until Monday, taking a little time off playing poker for the weekend, as it will be my first Father's Day as an actual father. Cant wait to see what the wife has planned for this!

Skillz Game Tonight + WSOP Event #26 = EPIC FAIL

Tonight we play Limit Razz.

The World Series was a huge bust for me. I took the first hand (as the big blind) when everyone folded the whole way around. I got QQ 3 times in the first hour, once where the person to my left ended up having the other two queens, and the player to his left had Pocket 4's which ended up rivering a straight. My one huge hand was when I had QQ and ended up flopping the set, and rivered quads. I took a nice chunk out of the young Asian kid that was playing every hand. He ended up giving me a big hurt back in the 4th level, as he was playing literally any two cards. I got pocket 8's, and bet out on every street with him just calling. He somehow woke up with pockets 9's. I finally pushed my last 850 chips in at the 150/300 level with AcJc, and some online internet "pro" called me with Pocket 7's. I didn't improve, and went home. I am disappointed in finished in the 4th hour, but not with how i played. Hopefully I will get another chance next year.

Vacation Update - The Belmont

I got to California after a few flight delays and a little sleep. I managed to get the computer run in running for the Belmont (last race of Horse Racing's Triple Crown). I had the already decided to pick the 2 Horse - Dunkirk, the 6 Horse - Mine that Bird, and the 7 Horse - Charitable Man. When it came to my Trifecta bet (picking the Top 3 finishers) I decided to throw in the 4 Horse, Summer Bird, who actually had the same father as the favorite Mine that Bird. I had a little extra on Bodog, so I put down a $3 box Trifecta ticket, which cost me $72. Summer Bird came from behind to win the race with 11-1 odds, Dunkirk finished 2nd at 9-2, and Mine that Bird third at 1-1. So my $72 bet ended up paying me $442.50.

The Skillz Game has not been posted yet by Full Tilt for Tuesday, hopefully later this weekend.

I will be heading to Vegas on Thursday and be there until Saturday evening (or Sunday night if I make the final table of Event #26.

Send me an email at chip_moser at comcast dot net if you are there and have some free time, I want ot actually meet some of the bloogers I have been playing poker with these last few years in person.

Skillz Game Tonight - Pot Limit Omaha 8 Or Better

Sorry for the lack of updates, its been a very busy time for my family, and Al managed to save my butt as far as the stats go, so they will be shown completely updated after tonight tournament.

Hope to see everyone there for some Pot Limit Omaha 8 or Better. I am sure the numbers will be much smaller then those during the BBT4, so no more 2 AM or later finishes.
