Busto [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Some interesting hands of the day:

1. 25/50, like the 10th hand or something. Table is a bunch of live players, and one guy who is clearly a good online player (later find out it's bigegypt). Guy raises utg to 150, 3 callers, I call in sb with 85hh. Flop J72r, I check, utg bets 150, bigegypt makes it 400, I make it 1250 because my hand looks enormous and I think good online guys generally raise much bigger there with a big hand. UTG calls, oops. I check fold the turn.

2. I've 3 bet bigegypt a lot. He makes it 300 at 50/100 in ep, some guy calls, I make it 1300 on the button with KK. He thinks and 4bets to 5k with 7k behind. I shove, he calls unhappily with AK. Flop AAx. [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Turn K. [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

3. I get as low as 6k before cardracking a bit and getting to around 13. SB who is youngish and just got here recently open limps sb at 100/200. I raise 99 to 700 total, he calls. Flop KQ7r, check/check. Turn 6, he bets 1050, I call. River A, he instabets 2100, I call, 22 no good.

4. bigegypt loses a big pot where he opens Ac8, bets all streets on a 8c7c4c6c7 board. Guy shoves river and he disgustedly folds and shows. (LOL story of the day, the guy claims for the rest of the night that he had the Kc.) Next hand, he opens in ep, I call in the co with 66. Flop T63 two diamonds, he leads 800, I make it 2300, he make it 8k, I shove 9k more, he thinks a bit and calls with AdA. Turn 4d (obv), river blank.

5. I get as high as 41k before getting moved to watts' table. I unsuccessfully squeeze once and am down to 35k when this happens...button raises to 1200 at 150/300/50. I reraise 9h4h to 3700 in the sb and he calls, oops. Flop 6h5h4, I bet 4700 trying to leave myself room to 3bet shove if he does some bizarre tiny raise to see where he's at. He jams and I instacall. He shows Kh3h, turn 7 [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Probably going to catch a train back home tomorrow, then head to Foxwoods on Friday.

Steve

lol @ live players. Watson comes back up to the room (with like 75k at the end of the day) and tells me this is what the guy who busted me said about the hand (the K3hh guy): "I knew he was reraising me with nothing, so I called because I knew that if I caught the right flop I could bust him."........lol donkaments

Just over one hour in.

Fiery Run Goot


Rhynie Campbell bets 250 preflop and two players call before Jonathon Little raises to 1,000 from late position. Campbell and one other opponent calls and the flop rolls out J-9-8. Campbell and seat two call and Little fires out 10,000. Campbell makes the call and seat two moves all in for 16,000. Both Campbell and Little makes the call and everyone opens up their hands. Campbell shows pocket jacks, seat two show pocket aces, and Little rolls over pocket eights. The turn and river cards come 8-7 and Little makes quad eights. Campbell is eliminated on the hand and Little now has 53,000.

Just got settled into my room.

This place is pretty cool, it looks like there is a lot of stuff to do.

I'm probably playing tomorrow, so I am going to get some rest.

Ok, I'm not going to come any where close to doing this story justice, but I'm going to try to tell it anyway.

So, I'm in Niagara Falls Ontario in a quest to qualify for the the WPT. I played an 18 hr session through Thursday night and Friday morning. Cause I don't live in Ontario anymore, a buddy came to visit me tonight in Niagara.

So, we hit up Sundowner which is suppose to be the best gentleman's club in Niagara. That gets us warmed up. Then cause we're old (I'm 29), we hit a local bar to find some non teen bopper girls. So, anyway...get wasted at this local bar and decide it's time to hit the Fallsview casino for some late night black jack.

So, we get there and it still looks like the club dragonfly at fallsview is still going strong even though it is after last call. Well, we some how get in after last call, after close and it's still packed. We run into this beautiful 6'1" blonde I know from Kingston and end up leaving the bar with her.

We head to the casino still with the plan to play some BJ. Anyway, we're standing out front of the poker room and I decide to go in and see who I know that is playing. So, I talk to a guy that I know that is playing 50/100nl. After talking to him a bit and discussing going out tomorrow night, I head back to my friend and the tall blonde.

So, what do I walk into? Daniel Negreanu and my buddy are in some kinda high energy discussion. Apparently Daniel asked if he could punch my buddy for no reason (realize, we are all very drunk). So, my buddy, although not big, is very excitable and knows how to handle him self.

I'm a little confused by this part because my friend is very intelligent despite his usual actions, and it's hard to know when he's manipulating a situation. Anyway, I'm trying to tell him who he's talking to and why we should not make a scene. He says he doesn't know who Dan N is. Later he admits he knew the whole time.

Anyway, no one go overly aggressive or anything and it all seemed to be in good fun. Dan N wanted to punch my buddy for no reason, my buddy played it up, and when everyone is watching in front of the brush at the poker room, my buddy takes of his shirt and drops his pants...again, no apparent reason.

Obviously this attracts a large crowd. I'm trying to police everything by talking to Dan N and Mike Matusow and the security guards. It was crazy, funny, and kinda unbelievable.

After all the security shows up, Daniel is kind enough to help escort my buddy out to a cab with my help to make sure no one has any problems. It was all really crazy and I wish I was half way sober so I could tell it better.

Mike Matusow was surprisingly quiet through the entire thing.
