The weekly Mookie tournament update

I played in Mookie’s tournament last night while I worked on ripping CDs to add to my new iPod. After struggling until about 1:30am on Tuesday night to get the thing to work with my laptop, I had a ton of music that I wanted to get added before I leave for St. Louis this weekend. I also won’t have much time from when I get back from there and when I leave for my trip next week, so I need to get it done.

Anyway, I started off with some playas at my table with Hoyazo, Boobie Lover, smokkee, and others. I was catching some cards early but giving my chips back as I played looser than I normally did. It also didn’t help that I was playing with some aggressive players. It wasn’t the smartest strategy but it may have paid off later in the night.

The first huge hand was when I caught bullets and got all the chips in pre-flop with Hoyazo. He had cowboys and I doubled up. He had me covered so he was still in but wounded pretty bad. Tough one man. Gotta love rigged online poker.

I don’t remember a lot of details but I did manage to survive until the final table. I went in fourth, cashing again, but was put out by the eventual winner, Dog Lawyer. Matt followed me out the door in 3rd and it was left to Dog Lawyer and Sniper to battle it out for the title. Congrats to Matt and to Miami Don for a strong showing in the tourney.

I like the Mookie tourney a lot. It helps that I have had some luck in it but it is also nice that a large part of the field is friends of Mookie. They are very good players and the final tables are usually split between bloggers and Austin weirdos.

Give it a shot next week. I won’t be able to attend, but I will see you there the following week.

That was all the poker I fit in last night. I am getting psyched up for my big trip to St. Louis for the APL National Championship. I finished the Moneymaker book, which I thought was very interesting. He had a lot going on before he made it, and subsequently won. It sounds like he had even more going on after too. It didn’t get into the affect on his life too much, but it said enough that you got the impression that it might have been the best thing in the world for him.

Good game last night, Chris. I definitely got lucky quite a few times. Then again, PokerStars owed me big time.

Thanks guys. Hey Mookie, that is the Austin thing right? "Keep Austin Weird".

Of course I don't really know what that means. Hope I didn't offend anyone.

Great game Chris, it was fun sweating the bubble with you.

I've only known one guy from Austin and yes he was a weirdo.

I'll let you know more when Mookie and the crew make it out here in June.

Ha, yea unfortunately that's the motto here as well as "Live Music Capital of the World". I am not a native Austinite, much less Texan (originally from Chicago) so no offense here.....damn yankee :)
