I just got home from the Peppermill (after paying $5 for a jug of milk on the way home) up about $250 for the day, which really isnt all that bad. But i was at one of the best tables imaginable, even before i invited Karen to move to it. So i really shouldve won far more. there were 2 extremely loose players there, both of whom were going back and forth between $100-500. i left after the big hand right after many new players had recently sat that i had no idea about. still think it mightve been not too bad a game. also Lance the dealer gave me a sack of shirts.
started off losing $73 initial buyin, then i rebought for $100. Just couldnt get any good hands to go up against the action, it was the type of game where bluffing someone wasnt a good idea. sat there quite a long time and eventually i got the stack up to about $250 or so and as always, ive forgotten what the hands were.
i do remember my final hand though. i flopped 9JK all in diamonds when dealt the QT of diamonds. now how do u maximize the value? theyres NO min requirement for the high hand, which is $150, and more if it holds up for the hour. i checked in mid late position. turn comes 6 of diamonds, and the loosest guy at the table whose able to fold when u show strength bets $15. only i call. river comes 5 spades and he again bets $15. im praying he has the ace and i dont think he will fold it so i go allin. would u?
he shows the 7 of diamonds and folds. and i show the straight flush. then i find out from the floor that someone else has a royal already. i took my winnings and left to take a break and buy the milk.
really not too bad off however, still being at $9317 when just the other day i went from $9500 to back to almost $8500 a day later had i not recovered right at the end $200.
theres a promotion i didnt know about and im sure ill qualify for it. u see, the top 50 hours getters in april get free seats into a $180 satellite in may 16 for the big $1100 main event on may 21. ten people will get seats, and im thinking u probably cant sell the $180 satellite seat, but maybe u can sell the $1100 main event seat if u win one? i have no idea. maybe someone else knows. Last time there was a similar promotion i was 2nd in hours but that time they were doing drawings so i never ended up qualifying if i remember right. also people with more hours get more than the $1 comp per hour, up to as much as $2.50 comp per hour.
