well heres my long overdue blog post, seems like this will be the first blog post in quite a while i wont be playing an online DON sng at the same time i type the blog post.
yeah, no one can log into feltstars any more they closed down and merge is going to be transferring feltstars balances onto BCP and carbon for those with accounts there. have talked to vook, and hes been updating the feltstars threads on the old forums, so go look and also read his blog for more details. i sent support an email this morning asking my balance be transferred to my BCP account, and am currently waiting to hear something back.
also ive NOT BEEN HOME since saturday, i slept in circus sat nite, sun nite, and i slept in my room at terribles monday night, and soon as herbie wakes up ill sell him my room at terribles for tues wed nights, maybe even thrus if i can add it on.
kind of nice to be sleeping in a nice room again, without having to travel anywhere and pay for cabs, although i still got my apt and ill be back over there soon today to change clothes.
roll is up to $5200 (thats before my $123 phone bill is coming out anytime now). am still winning, and im assuming that will stop anytime now. was up to $225 at terribles loose wild $3-6 about 7am, and left with only $88, so my $145 profit ended up being an $8 profit although i did win $249 on the VP machine earlier, mostly on 1 hand, so i still did good last night.
down to only about $200 in comps at circus now instead of over $250. Herbie came back into town on sunday morning. he wouldnt even come out the strip without first walking all the way to the downtown terminal to buy a 2 weeks pass, them new passes are a good deal to a lot of people. only half the price of the monthly pass.
we both played the riv 10k guarantee $125 entry on sunday. turns out there was no overlay. i used up all my comps, it covered most of the entry fee, and herbie bought half my action for $65. i thought that was a good deal in case i busted out and made nothing, and most of the time it wouldve been. not this time however. by the time id won, i owed him 60% instead of 50%, we swapped 10% in case he moneyed and i didnt, by the dinner break (long after my cell had died to where i couldnt do twitter updates and id gave it to herbie to charge up in the room) we had an agreement to pay 14 spots instead of 13, putting us all in the money.
thats when i called Josie and Claudia with the good news. never did eat on the dinner break. turns out when i came back, the agreement never existed after all a guy who wasnt around to vote vetoed the idea. (brian the dealer and player from Bills). at least i think thats his name, he is well known to any employee around there. so we started playing hand for hand, and i was so glad to see a player break on the other table. i had a slightly above average chip stack then, from a lead earlier.
here is the hand later doubling me up at the final table when down to 10. before then i was really wanting a chop.
i had 99 and the european raised who wasnt a regular and i went over the top allin with 15-16 BB. he calls, has me covered, with ak, so i feel relieved to not see a pair til the flop comes AA3. 9 hits the turn, and it reminds me of a wsop hand with phil ivey. and my hand holds up on the river. thats when i become very close to chip leader. i also win a few pots myself with ak and later am chip leader, still was so when we chopped 7 ways by chip count. always good to do it by chip count.
although us bigger stacks did have to throw in some equity to the smaller stacks to get them to accept the deal, but not a lot. earlier at the advice of my backer i turned down a deal giving me $1200 when i couldve still busted out for under $500. so i was glad when i finally got the better deal. no one in the tourney got more than me when the tourney ended, so i officially had first place, and got $1700, gave the dealer $50, i got $660 and my backer got $990. now we can all see after that horrible kingofdonks fiasco i am finally worthy of being staked again.
