btdino poker games

I doubled up when I took AK against one opponent's AT. There were about 150 players left from the 601 we started with. I ended up getting knocked out a short time later when I raised with pocket tens and was called by one player. The flop was eight high. I thought about what I was going to do. If I bet the pot, I was going to be pot committed, so I thought it would be best if I just moved my chips in. She called in an instant. I said, "If you called that quickly, you must have Aces." She flipped up pocket eights for a set. I turned a flush draw, but neither the heart nor ten got there on the river. I finished in about 135th place.

I went over to the reporter's table and told Pauly from Tao of Poker that I had just been eliminated. He asked if I would mind doing an exit interview and I told him that it would be no problem. We talked for awhile and then I went to play a satellite. I got down to five players, but was eliminated with pocket tens again.

I went to check out the Ladies Event again. One of my friends was still in it and she had some chips. I also noticed that Jennifer Tilly was still there too. Earlier in my trip, I talked with Phil Laak about a variety of things. One thing he mentioned was that he got the better end of the deal regarding his relationship with Jennifer. When I walked out, I noticed that Phil was at the final table of the Pot Limit Holdem event. I thought it would make a great story if both of them finished in the money on the same day.

I went back to my hotel room and packed up my stuff. I was ready to go home, but I wanted to take a nap before droving home. My nap ended up being nine hours. Sometimes poker is so exhausting. When I got home, I looked up the results and found out Jennifer won the Ladies Event, my friend Theresa finished sixth, Phil Laak finished in second in the Pot Limit Holdem event and Johnny Chan won his record tenth bracelet. It has been an exciting series. The only thing that will make it better for me is if I come home with a victory. My next shot at it is at the $5,000 Omaha Hi Low event.
