“In each of us two natures are at war… the good and the evil. All our lives the fight goes on between them, but one of them must conquer. In our own hands lies the power to choose. What we want most to be we are.” – Dr. Henry Jekyll

Happy Father's Day P*Star #1879

First Happy Father's Day to my fellow "Daddy" bloggers... and of course to my own father. So here's a quick update on the Poker Tournament... I'm out at #1879 of 2247. Here are my overall stats for the tourney:
During current Hold'em session you were dealt 42 hands and saw flop:
- 2 out of 5 times while in big blind (40%)
- 3 out of 5 times while in small blind (60%)
- 22 out of 32 times in other positions (68%)
- a total of 27 out of 42 (64%)
Pots won at showdown - 3 of 10 (30%)
Pots won without showdown - 5
I know... my showdown ratio was horrid... but it was a very tight playing table with a lot of checking. The guys were cool though... and for a bunch of bloggers it took awhile to get some table chat going... although I tend to think I may have been the only one who was a blogger with more than 2 months going into it. What killed me? The Bitches. No... not those Bitches... the Queen of Hearts and the Queen of Spades.

Here's how the final hand played out for those who care:

Seat 5: Dixon01 folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 6: achengy (button) folded before Flop (didn't bet)

Seat 8: max1090 (big blind) showed [2s 2h] and won (3545) with three of a kind, Deuces
Seat 9: lucianoar folded before Flop (didn't bet)
In hindsight... I should have seen the trips coming... but I didn't. I figured the odds of max1090 having the nut straight was pretty weak... so I came over the top and my Bitches got blasted. Originally I had wanted to end in the top 1,000 which didn't happen. The World Blogger Championship of Online Poker has once again eluded me. My future in poker is grim. Maybe I should just take T on and become Uno Champion of the World. Sounds easier... and cheaper. Now I'm off to a barbecue.
