my buddy, Wil Wheaton - pt 2

welcome back, gentle reader

so how far can you get in a tourney when down to 4bb in the first 10 mins ??

well, you need some luck ....

with Qc 9s Jd Kc and only hitting a K on the flop i pushed, one caller who hit trips on the flop ... oops ... there was one club on the flop ... one on the turn .... river club completes my mammoth suckout .... gets me back to the hugely impressive t260 .... and all i could muster in the chat was "blimey" .... err sorry Sting11165

then, you need some dubious play by the opposition ....

dealt KTJJ rainbow i call a small raise .... flop J9K rainbow and i pot it, he raises me all-in and i call
*** RIVER *** [Js 9d Kc Qs] [4h]
*** SHOW DOWN ***
S.t.B: shows [7s Ah 8c As] (a pair of Aces)
ResdentEvil: shows [Ks Tc Jh Jd] (a straight, Nine to King)
ResdentEvil collected 550 from pot

then you need the opposition to fold ....

limp with Js Kc Jd 2c ... bet pot on 3s Jc 8h flop ... they fold and i show top set

then, you need to fold .... a lot :)

then, you need to hit some sets ....

call a small raise 9s Jh Jd 9d .... flop Kc 9h 2s ... pot it for t300 hoping to avoid a set of kings .... all fold .... giving me t855 ... yeesh this is hard work.

jahs34 said, "set again"

then, don't get caught stealing ... i did, dropped to t555
then, you need the nutz .... turned the nut flush and leapt to t1055

then you need a little prophecy .... ResdentEvil said, "lol i will get bak in this game somehow :)"

or maybe not, lots of folding, again :(

then, you need your buddy to show up and give some moral support ....

Wil Wheaton said, "wheeee! =]"
BamBamCan said, "Wil Sir.... welcome"
ResdentEvil said, "well hello mr Wheaton ...... again :)"
Wil Wheaton said, "we have to stop meeting up like this"
ResdentEvil said, "lol i wont tell :)"

even with that stellar moral support .... lots more folding .......

then, you need the opposition to catch a hand, preferably ever so slightly worse than yours ....... especially when your stack has dwindled to t580 ....

Sting11165: shows [Th 4h Ad Td] (a flush, Ten high)
ResdentEvil: shows [Kh Jh Jd Kc] (a flush, King high)
ResdentEvil collected 1410 from pot

then, hang on for the first break ... blinds 50/100 aint exactly good for my stack

then, a gentle ribbing of the opposition pre-break .......

ResdentEvil said, "hey trane, can i have my chips back after the break :)"
Trane420 said, "no way"
BamBamCan said, "U can suck out!lol"

lol indeed, this programme will resume after the break .......
