The organization isn't run very well, so I decided to take conrol of our teams and run them as a separate entity. The parents dig it, and we coach their girls to understand the game first, then winnning second. Although we were undefeated our two previous season, this year is turning out to be a little more competitive because of a new league we will be competing in. For 9 year old girls, we have some talent. It'll be fun to say the least...
Anyway, the point is, I had a coaches meeting after practice, which made me about 45 minutes late for the Hoy. I was surprised to see 82 again in the field. I thought word might have spread a little farther and expected to see closer to 100. Still, the buyin might have something to do with it as opposed to The MOOK and the RC...
When I got to the table, I was down to only about 2500. I got lucky twice shoving QJ (with only 1400 left) from the BB into Evy's blind steal. Only she had AQ. I hit a J and doubled up. Then the same thing happened again when I shoved AJ into QQ and caught two J's.
I got up to about 30k at one point, never getting lucky (or unlucky) again until I finally went out in 4th.
Worm and Magician went heads up and continued to play, flipping stacks back and forth like a heads vs. tails tournament. I couldn't keep my eyes open and fell asleep. They played HU for quite a while.
I did manage to see Smokee blowing Mag this time, although not as much as he did Lucko at the final table of the Riverchasers tourny on thurs. Those comments really crack me up. One was, "why even have the TOC? Just let these two monsters play it heads up and save everyone some time"
I was a shorty at the final table the whole time until I doubled off of Snailtrax when he open raised A7 sooted into my AJ. I dissapointed Fuel once by folding a limped presto early on at the FT to get shoved by the BB. I didn't feel like racing (being dominated) and figured I would pick a better spot.
