Okie-Vegas and Kaja's Hood

I'll be leaving ATL in a couple of days to head to Okie Vegas and I can't wait!!! I'm getting there about a week ahead of most folks to hang with my good buddy G and help him prepare for everyone's arrival the following week.
I got a chance to go play over in Kaja's neighborhood Friday night and Mrs Surf went with me. As usual she outlasted me in the tournament as she has done every time we have played together live which is about 10 times!!! She final tabled it and went on to finish in 3rd making the money....way to go!!!

MSOP: Making a Run and Royal Flush

I'm in Event 46 right now. We are just a few spots to the money and I have a good stack of 37,559...sitting in 20th position right now. I've been in the top 20 for about an hour now thanks to some really good hands including a royal flush!!!

Hopefully I can keep it up!!!

Update: I'm up to 50k and we are in the money. I'm sitting around 10th of 90 right now.

Update: We're 4 hours in to the tournament and down to 58 players. I'm in 27th right now with 42k. The chip leader is to my immediate left with 130k so I'm having to be a little cautious right now as he is playing a ton of hands and hitting the flops hard.

Update: Out in 45th place. Top two pair against a flopped straight.

50/50 and Daily Double Tonight

I won a satellite to the 50/50 tonight and I'm playing in the Daily Double tournaments on Tilt.
I cashed in both daily double tournaments a few days ago to hit a bonus for a double cash; we'll see if maybe i can repeat that and hopefully make a run in the 50/50.

Huge congrats to F-Train for cashing in the WSOP Razz event...way to go!!!!!

I won about 50 bucks at a cash table around 9 last night and decided to use that money to play the 50/50. About 5 hands in I noticed mclarich at my table. I said hello to him and he hadn't noticed I was there either.
We both chipped up nicely in the first hour and sat well above average after the first hour. About an hour and a half in Mclarich ran pocket kings in to pocket aces. The guy with aces picked up four to the flush but Mclarich hit the one outer on the river to double up nicely.
I won a couple of nice pots with J 10 and A K and manged to get up to around 6k.
My demise came just after the 2nd break. I was in the small blind with A J and a player in the cutoff raised it up about 3x the big. I repopped it to about 2,500 or so and the big blind shoved with his last 2k. Now calling that would have been a no brainer as it only cost me a few more chips. The problem is the first raiser shoves for almost all my chips. I don't have him on a steal as strongly as I did but I still feel he's trying to isolate the other player. I almost fold but there's so much already in the pot I decide to call. I'm up against AQ from the Big Blind and AK...not good. I hit a jack on the flop but it was an all diamond flop giving the cutoff player a flush on the flop. I went out shortly after that but I noticed Mclarich managed to make it to the second level of payouts.
Have a great week at the tables everyone!!!

T. O. C. Decision and Fun with Riggs

I'm playing in the BBT3 tournament of champions tomorrow. If I were by some miracle to finish in 1st or 2nd which believe me, with the lineup I will be facing will include at least a couple of miracles, then I have a decision that had to be made. I cannot take the time off necessary to play the W.S.O.P. this year. I have already been offered a seat to the main event previously and had to turn it down.
My decision was that if I win 1st or 2nd there is no way a blogger isn't using that money to enter the Main Event. I have extended the invitation to B.W.o.P. to play for me in the main event if I win 1st or 2nd in the T.O.C. She doesn't need to answer this yet but I sure hope I put her to that decision. : )

Riggs and I have a friendly prop bet going right now on who will lose the most weight between today and the Bash in September. We will weigh in at the bash and the loser will pay up.
I'm currently at 275 which is 45 pounds lighter than I was first of the year. I'm giving this my best shot...good luck Riggs!!! I think we will both be winners on this one no matter who has to pay up.
