So my first experience with the WPBT was a fun but short one. I won the second hand at my table when I flopped a flush. Not a big pot but I thought it was a nice way to start. A few hands later I had to fold AKo when nothing flopped for me. From there I preceded to sit back and watch the show. I had Dr. Pauly to my right and I watched him push with the hammer preflop and drive everyone out of a pot.
I saw a few flops here and there but most of my starting hands were awful and the few I had that were potentially playable saw sizeable raises that most of the time I could not justify calling. After sometime (I have no idea how long, I was in a fever/drug induced haze) I was down about 400 chips under the starting stack. The blinds weren't killing me yet but I needed a hand quick....
I'm on the SB and I have cowboys....Yay! The guy behind Pauly, 787Style raises to 150 from 50, Pauly immediately pushes. I'm thinking 787Style=overcards, Pauly=hammer, yes I actually put the good Doctor on the hammer, I mean he did it earlier so it did not seem so far fetched. In my mind I'm probably ahead and can potentially triple up and then have some real fun at the table. Ahem, no. 787Style had AA and Pauly did have the hammer. Flop came 7h 5d 7d, glup! Turn in 9d. Hmmm now wait, I can catch my miracle four outer flush here cause on of my K's is a d. Alas no the river is a 5h the board pairs and Pauly gets a full house hammer.
The news travels faster than I thought possible around the tables. In no time the hand history is posted on Iggy's site. Did anybody get a screen shot??
I was not upset, I mean this is what is supposed to happen at the Blogger tourney right? Also I shall ever live in infamy for being involved in The Hand. I informed Pauly of his winning of my bounty, he feels a bit guilty about the hand compiled with winning a bounty with it. Let me say this Pauly, if I had caught my four outer I wouldn't have felt the least bit guilty and neither should you. So all in all it was fun but waaaay to short also not being anywhere near 100% made it a bit less enjoyable too. I can't wait for the next one!
