Green vs. Blue and other stuff
The program was a bit, ummm, i dunno really how to describe it (embarassing? retarded?), with the tournament taking FOREVER to start (it said 6pm but started 10pm) delayed by stupid song and dance numbers that had nothing to do with poker, hosts and emcees who didn't really know what the hell they were talking about, (wow sir, you must be really to good to win two world championships with deuces of tens!) and a retarded blinds structure where everyone starts with TEN big blinds at 15 minute levels.
But Doyle and his crew were good sports and just went along with the program all smiles. What a great guy. After the program, he even went up to the cash tables and said goodbye to the players before being whisked away to his hotel.
Well, after a rush like that, what else is there to do but play some poker! So i promptly did my thing and lost going all in while pressing my edge (my all in was pot sized pre-flop, made everyone fold except one guy with 8-9 offsuit.(?!?) he got two pair on the flop against my sixes.)
Kath (who swore NEVER to play in the ACF after tasting multiple bad beats) had a better night, cashing out TEN TIMES her buy-in! Go kath! (maybe i shouldn't play and just stake kath all the time.)
I'll be playing the Green vs. Blue game on saturday, gonna go for that plasma TV! The blinds strucutre again will be a bit retarded and super-turbo fast, so i'm hoping to get lucky and hit the cards right. No amount of skill will win that game for anyone. The luckiest man that night will win the tournament for sure. Wish me luck! I'm gonna need it.
