Excalibur - pt 2

welcome back, gentle reader.

perhaps I should stick to playing freerolls ?

the mega HORSE tourney (nearly 5,000 runners) I placed in was a satellite to a $1000 freeroll limit hold'em

2598 runners plus moi :))

three and a half hours later I bust out in 140th place

the top 549 places pay .........

I won ... $1.30 ... no, really, I did

where as a paying tourney .... on stars of course ...

I call an all-in with AA ...

stars see's fit to throw out 4 clubs ... the all-in guy has a club ... ho hum

I should have folded, of course :)

hi guys

a quick amendment before the dice rolls in ... the AA thingy, my opponent had two suited cards ... lol !! so 'stars only saw fit to throw out three of his suit ... last one on the river of course !!

Who the devil would push with JQs??

Although I'm sure whoever did it had an M of around 4 and was desperate and was first into the pot...
....but then again maybe he was just a fish or a cloud (better roll the dice to find out which one).

UL mate.
I guess I owe you a few chips...
