Quads . . . Ship it!

I wish I knew this guy had the hammer.

I would've bet more and took his last $140.

I'll take what I got though!

I slayed this HORSE tourney tonight. I was the shortstack when the final table started and somehow found myself as the chipleader when it got down to 3 players. I even dropped the hammer during heads up play. Wish I got a screenshot of that.

Click to enlarge . . . it's a pretty nice score for a $50 MTT.

Uh oh . . . there's rumors going around that Doyle Brunson was arrested late last night/early this morning. For what? No one knows at this moment.

The legend of Doyle Brunson continues . . . .

No Limit Sickness

Check out this screen shot. I was playing $2/4 NL on FTP and busted two players with AA vs. KK and QQ. What a sick hand . . . . I won an $839 pot. I took about $539 from those poor guys.

I've been winning some pretty huge pots at the NL table. Sheer terror in some cases.

A few weeks ago, I won $1,200 in two hands. They happened at the same time which was crazy. I was multi-tabling $2/4 and $1/2 NL tables and was all-in on both. I took down both pots for a nice score. I had the best hand when the money went in each time.

I issued a pretty brutal beat last night though. I cracked AA with JJ. I rivered a Jack for the win and took down a $720 pot. Talk about being lucky.
