WPBT HORSE Tourney
After bubbling out of several tournaments, I got back on the saddle and signed up for the WPBT HORSE event that April set up on Full Tilt Poker.
I did very well and finished in 4th place. I was really glad to make the money especially after a painful 24 hour period of getting kicked in the junk time after time.
In total, I bubbled out of 4 large field tourneys (starting late Thursday night going through early Friday evening). Luckily, I ended the drought by cashing in 2 consecutive tourneys. Wooot!
Congrats to Biscutblocker for winning the event. He beat out Scurvydog in heads up play. It was a tough 3 way battle at the end with Garth finishing in 3rd. Great job guys!
I even got a chance to drop the hammer at the final table!
I had a pretty big stack at the final table and was in first place for a bit. I blew it when I donked off most of my stack in Omaha 8OB. That's my least favorite HORSE game. In fact, I'm starting to prefer PLO these days to O8 and I thought I'd never say that!
I lost a big hand to Garth when I flopped trips and he turned a full house. But the hand that put me on tilt is captured below. I folded this hand by mistake and lost focus after that. I should've scooped! I had a 7 high straight and the wheel for the low.
The implosion of Derek started shortly afterwards. Thankfully, I was still able to finish in 4th.
Thanks again to April for setting this event up! I had a blast! Until next time guys!
