Interrupting the Dream run

The dreams are still running but distorted lately, I’m not in the stress mode of trying to get to work or deal a game, although Jennifer Harman, my ex-husband poker player, and a few others are popping into the dreams, they’ve taken on a different texture lately.  But in the meantime, the dreams of thousands of others are kicking off tomorrow in Las Vegas as the WSOP brings the pros, wannabes, newbs, and everything in between into Sin City.

Updating PokerStars WBCOOP

The night that I took first place, I can only recall one hand where I got really lucky. But he got lucky first. Then I got relucky when it counted. Of course I heard about it because we were stuck at 10 handed – two tables – for frigging ever. Two short stacked players kept managing to win the low, or the high, and hang on to a few chips, and we were hand for hand, I didn’t time it but I think that went on for an hour and a half.

The Tournament I got knocked out of

when Hughes.net shut down my satellite stream to a trickle is kinda sad in a way.  I probably shouldn’t have even went back to find out where I placed but I did.  I had over 5K in chips when I went into the dead zone.  There were 1014 of us and I finished in 207th place.  Then I checked to see what my last hand was…Aces…No KIDDING!  Of course you just get auto folded out of the hands when you are sitting out.   Continue reading The Tournament I got knocked out of
