Home From Florida

We took the crew down to Destin for a few days last week. It was nice for us to get to hang out with all of our kids and grandkids for a few days. I did manage to play for a little while at the Ebro poker room; plenty of action there for anyone interested. There were at least 20 tables running, mostly 1/2 and 2/5 no limit.

Biloxi Tournaments in One Month

At the end of August, Mrs Surf and I are going to Biloxi to play in the Gulf Coast Poker Championships. I am playing Event 6 and also either Event 4 or 7. Mrs Surf is playing Event 5 and probably Event 7. I'm really excited about Event 6 as it is the largest buy-in tournament I have ever played breaking the $1,000 barrier.
I'm also going to be playing either the WSOP Circuit tournaments in Tunica or the WPT tournaments in Biloxi in January. I would be interested in hearing opinions on which of the two would be better to play.
In 2009, I am going to be making a big push to play a lot of tournaments larger than I have in the past so my swings will be a bit larger; hopefully for the better!

Edit: I won The Math!!! Wheeeeeeee!!!

Good luck at the tables this week everyone!!!

Home from Okie Vegas

I'm back home from Oklahoma and I've been busy at work this week catching up on being gone for almost two weeks.
I had a great time in Oklahoma!!! It was great to see some old friends again and meet some new ones. Thanks so much to the GCox family and the TC family for letting me stay in your homes and thanks to Maudie and OSU for helping host.
For the record, at the casino when I folded AA face up after the flop OSU did indeed show that he had flopped two pair.
I got very lucky to win the Saturday tournament as I pulled off a few well timed bluffs and then won a huge hand heads up against Buddy Dank when he was a 2 to 1 favorite.
I'm looking for a couple of $1000+ live tournies to play in September or so. If anyone knows of any events running during that time please let me know.

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.
