The Wednesday Donkarama

Through tiredness I drove on into the Donk fest that is called the Mookie. It was a fine field and I fluctuated up and down early. After the first break I was sitting near the Dank position and made the decision to play a few more hands. I chipped up a little but still had a long way to go. I had been playing real tight for 6-handed and when Numbono raised in front of me I pushed with my 77. I figured him for a strong A and I was right when he called with his AK. I was hoping for AJ and a fold from him but the coin flip was ok. The flop came QTQ and I’m feeling ok. The turn was x and I’m ready to double…that is until a T hits and my 2 pair is counter fitted.

I also played the Dookie which was turbo Razz. This is a real skill game and the play reflected the great skills of all the players. I eventually made the final table as a short stack and doubled up at the right time when my 972 clearly dominated my opponents 974. I waited a little and finally found another good hand with A56 only to get called down by A53. He hit his cards and I didn’t for 7th place with 4 paying. It was a fun game but turbo Razz is really a game for masochist.

I also played a little cash Horse and made a small gain. I like the game but Stud is still the biggest weakness for me. Maybe FT will spread HORE. Maybe they can come up with a game that starts with a W to make it real fun to play.

I leave for Japan on Saturday and was informed yesterday that the parent company there had already given away their seats for the baseball games there in Tokyo. They were trying to get me to a game but no go this time. That would have been the true nuts.

I’m going to miss a few family events like soccer and cheerleading while I’m gone. It really sucks to be missing these things but I have to do what I have to do. I know the kids will do just fine without me.

One last thing, I’m going to do a fundraiser tourney for my daughters softball team. I’m thinking January or early February so if anyone wants to come to the western suburbs of Chicago and play let me know. You can leave a comment or email me at thepokerenthusiast at Comcast dot net. I could also arrange a trip to the boat in Aurora if anyone is interested.

That’s it for today…Have a great day.

Don't you hate it when you are in the dank position?
