When the Good Doctor is away...

Mondogarage will play. Poker, that is.

After having my online poker pretty much be hit, miss, or the occasional random donk event lately, it felt good to just get back in there any multi-table 3-4 tourneys at a time last night. Real good. Unfortunately, no final tables, but I was able to cash four times:

166 of 1302
13 of 133
110 of 1646

and last, but not least,

10 of 1285 in a PokerStars $3 buy in, when my AJs went down to AKo.

All in preflop on the final table bubble, and he'd only called me in the BB. I was 9 of 10 at that point, and me and bottom feeder were pretty much way behind everyone else, so I didn't think folding here and hoping he goes out first was a good option. AJs in preflop position is not a bad situation.

Nothing of great interest really happened there, other than when there were about 20 tables left, I was near the bottom with 4k in chips, when I picked up six pocket pairs in a row, won with them all, and after a couple hours of patience, had picked up the chips to actually play. Felt good. Ya'll bloggers best be ready.

Texas Holdem Poker

Oh yeah, and GO ROCKIES!

I promise to start blogging more after the World Series. In fact, I should be blogging about baseball, but my purple wonders just can't stop winning, and the Good Doctor Mondo and I just can't stop going to games. From the Dodgers sweep, to the final weekend against Arizona, to the Wild Card Tiebreaker, to last weekend's sweep of the Phillies, Coors Field has been thee place to be. And with tix for NLCS Games 4 and 6...well...let's just say I'm not counting on getting to use the tix to Game 6. ;-)

Back to poker soon, though sadly, I won't be trying to qualify for the first ever Heartland Poker Tour event in Colorado this week. Can't get up there, and still am not truly sure I can be in town for the main event, should I qualify. I is a Sad Mondo. GO ROCKIES!
