A very huge congratulations to Bear for taking down his third bracelet yesterday, winning the $1500 Razz event. Nice to see him take one down this year, as he has been knocking on the door for a while now, making several final tables in the last two years, but falling short. To boot, not only does he bring how the hardware, but he also pockets a nice chunk of change via a few bracelet bets that he made this year. The Bear is dominant, and it's nice to see him scoop one...

On my own online poker note, I just busted out of the $10k Limit Hold'em event about 20 short of the money. I don't feel like I played especially well yesterday, but I somehow managed to weave my way through the field and come back today, albeit short with only 23k, with a shot to make something happen. Things started off great and I was able to grow that stack up to about 85k, which made me very healthy and comfortable. Just as I was about to settle in though, I had a harrowing series of hands in about 15 minutes...

I picked up Jacks and ended up losing a huge pot to Queens on an all rag board. Not two hands later after that I picked up Jacks again...and lost a slightly smaller pot to...Queens! Deja vu, huh?! That knocked me down a bit, but then I lost another big one not but about 5 hands later when I flopped a set of 9's and my opponent made a runner-runner club flush after flopping open-ended with the 78 of clubs.

Whew, my luck could use some work recently, man. I got down to about 18k and ended up losing with 77 vs. KK vs. AQ all-in. See ya, baby...

That's about it for me. I seem to be going deep in most events, but not getting it done when it's crunch time. Gotta improve on that...

Nothing else going on, my friends. Just poker, poker radio, and keeping everything else in line...

Holler at you guys soon...

peace,
J
