WPBT WSoP Event - Satellite # 2

May 1st, 2005

63 bloggers played tonight. I finished in 7th place. PokerPundit KO'd me. I was the shortstack and moved all in with AJo and lost to his A7o. He hit trips and I was done. I got pretty damn close but didn't make it in the end. Congrats to ABVidale for winning the seat! Both he and Bob will be going to the $1500 NL WSoP event on June 3rd. Good luck guys! Thanks to Iggy and Otis for setting this thing up again. I had a blast.

I was seated at the same table as CJ, Bob, F Train and TripJax.

Level 1: Bob won a big hand with AA. FEAR Bobby Bracelet!! I pretty much folded everything in this round.

Level 2: I got KK and raised. Easycure reraised me and I moved all in. He called with AT and I doubled up. A King even hit the flop for me. I had T2735 and moved into 3rd place.

Level 3: F Train pushed me out of a big pot preflop. I folded TT, 77, and 77 when I missed the flops. My QQ lost to A3o and I was down to T1865. I got AA and raised. Bob came over the top of me with QQ. I moved all in and Bob called. I severely shortstacked Bob in this hand. I was back up to T3730 and 4th place.

Level 4: I should've been KO'd in this level. I bad beated Sean. He flopped a set of 2's. I flopped top pair with my AJo. I foolishly called his all in reraise on the flop. The board was 2-T-A at the time. I runner runnered a straight on him when a K and Q hit. Sean was pretty shortstacked after I sucked out on him. Sorry Sean. Bob got KO'd in this hand. Sorry Bob. I had T7940 and was the chip leader. The break hit and I was in 2nd place. ABVidale was in 1st.

Level 5: I won a big hand with AK and had T9529. I folded everything else.

Level 6: Paul was moved to my table. He got KO'd shortly after he took a pretty bad beat. His KK lost to FTrain's QTo. F Train hit a boat and Paul was shortstacked. Paul also lost a big pot when his QJs ran into AA. I folded KJo and would've won the pot. Oh well. Paul finished in 23rd. Damn.

Level 7: It was down to 2 tables now. I had T8879. I limped folded a lot of hands in this level and fell down to T6779. I won a big hand with KQs and bumped my stack back up to T9279.

Level 8: KK won a nice sized pot for me and I was in 2nd place. The break hit.

Level 9: T11,250 - I limped folded a few times in this level. I got KK once again and won a nice pot. The final table started and I was in 7th place. I laid down a big hand against ABVidale. He moved all in with QQ and I folded JJ. Whew!

There was 8 people left and I was the shortstack. I moved all in AJo and lost to PokerPundit's A7o when he hit trip 7's. I got KO'd and finished in 7th place. Damn! Oh well. I had fun. I also got lucky as hell.

Congrats to ABVidale
for winning the tournament! Well done. He beat Poker Pundit heads up. Nice job guys. On_thg finished in 3rd place. He had a nice showing yet again. Congrats guys!

Good luck to Bob and ABVidale! We'll be rooting you guys on in the event.

Thanks Iggy and Otis!

I don't remember doubling you up in Level 2, weird. I played well after that and finished in 13th. Great job, Derek.
