I think I unintentionally earned a pantload of Hoy-hater points last night.
I completely forgot about this, until Hoyazo blogged about his unceremonious exit from the Skillz game.
"My personal highlight of the night was my elimination hand, when I was showing an Ace on 3rd street, bet and got called by an 8. Then I was dealt a 4 for an A4 showing, and the 8 was dealt a 7 for a 78 showing. So whem my A4 ass bet out, Mr. Dinkhead of course instacalled again. You know, because his 87 low has to be ahead of my A4-showing low. Well by that point I was very close to allin so I just put in the rest when I paired one of my low cards on 5th street, and fast forward 20 seconds later and there I am making a full house and losing to some 9 or 10-low hand.
Amazingly, that guy did not go on to win the razz event last night. I was shocked. But JD Schellnut did go on to nab his BBT3 Tournament of Champions seat, joining the likes of me and others who have won their way in via the Skills Series set of limit non-holdem events. Congratulations to JD for what I'm sure was a fine performance to outlast that field of donkeys in of all things a blogger razz event."
First off, I congratulate JDSchellnut for his win -- he played outstanding Razz. I like to think that if our hand early in 4-handed (where either his 8762A beat my 8763A, our his 7652A beat my 7653A, I forget the top 3 cards, but we had the same top 3) had gone the other way, I might have my TOC seat.
Hoy, meet Mr. Dinkhead.
If my memory serves, as "Mr. Dinkhead", I will only say that when you saw my 87 showing, you didn't get to see the hidden (A2) that went with it. Given your stack, and your penchant for aggressiveness, I knew you were pretty much completing or raising any (xx)A in that spot. I had every reason to think that if I wasn't already ahead, my draw was certainly worth sticking around a hand you were already committed to.
Mostly, I'd like to congratulate the entire field for surviving the first hour. Even in Razz, I've never seen anything like that in a bloggerment. That was cool.
