When Worlds Collide

So I haven't been playing many of the blogger poker tournaments lately. A big reason is that I just plain forget what time they start. I decided to add MATH, the Mookie, and Kat's Donkament to my Google Calendar (which gives me email reminders 30 minutes prior to the event start).

I caught the Mookie last night for the first time in a month or two, and had a good time. Chipped up with a couple good plays against the aggressive players at my starting table, then lost a bit of it back making bad plays against those same players. I got moved to a pretty tough table with Hoy, Pushmonkey and Skidoo, among others.

I played tight, and got a great read on the table. I made a few weird bets 222, 333, which got some notice from the table. K-3-2 flop, and I flopped two pair with K-2 from the big blind and led out with a pot-sized bet that I really intended to look like a steal. Hoy gave me action with a re-raise, and I pushed. He mulled it over, knew he was beat, and decided to go with a fuck-it call. K-Q. Runner 10's sent me home to counterfeit my two-pair. I steamed for a while, then realized he had six outs, plus the runner-runner outs--so he wasn't as big a dog as I thought in the heat of the moment. It did feel good to completely outplay him though :)

Just before my bustout, I had been chatting it up over on Waffles' table, and he said something about playing his hunter more than his druid now. What?! Waffles plays WoW??? He busted out just before me, and gave me his server and name, so I hopped on after my bustout to make a Warlock and see if he was online. He was, and we chatted it up for a while.

The plan is to get all of the poker bloggers who play WoW to get together on the same server for some fun WoW times. The guild will be called "The Waffle House" and I have already called Vice President, so back off, bitches.

I'm a firm believer in moderation, so quit playing so much poker and start playing WoW!

I would be interested, but I have no idea where to begin. Email me some details if you have some time and I will give it a try one night.

was fun. after you left I joined a temporary guild for a little while. they gave me some cool armor! I am such a whore. Once we have a few high level guys interested we can start our own. we should use skype or something for chatting if we group up for some dungeons.
