Shuffle up and deal… October 30, 2005 at 9:52 pm
So two weeks ago, Bert and Rick wanted to try out playing a real Texas Hold’em tournament, so we went out and played the $13 10am Sunday one at Sycuan. None of us won any money, though Rick made it to the last 3 tables before getting knocked out. While there, I found the new WPT table game… which I’ve come to really enjoy. Anyway, had enough fun with the tournament that I went back alone last weekend, and again today.
Today, I made it to the last table! Everyone decided to split the pot, well, the 2 chip leaders took $250 each, and the rest of us took $198. Sure, could’ve won a bit more if we’d played and I’d made 3rd place or better, but in the end, this was the smart play for us. Anything less then 3rd place would’ve been less and less money, this way, we all got a decent amount.
Oh, and I also got 3 $5 bounties for eliminating people. 🙂 Then I lost all the money playing the aforementioned WPT game… then won it all back, plus a bit. So a good day overall.
