Frustrating wait…

As I was waiting for the PokerSavvy Freeroll on Poker.com (for 1000$) to start I played some SnGs on FullTilt, no joy. Then I play the freeroll and after catching some cards early on I basically go on a card diet for a long time, then I try to make a stand with A10 but that was no match for KQ…down but not out…that would be the case in the next hand 99 no good. Oh well…18th out of 36…boooo! Nontheless thanks to Matt from PokerSavvy (aff) for hooking us up with a 1k freeroll!
On another note: only the top 5 payed (400/250/150/120/80) which was a cooler anyway after two players already sitting on 6k stacks (1k starting stack) after under 40 minutes…3 of the known faces in the top six Mookie bubbled, FishyMcDonk went out in 4th and Wes came back to take the win and 400$, nice one….

Darn bubble ! Enjoyed the tourney though and it was my first time playing on that site. I liked that you could show your cards after the hand, and even just one card.

Hey Mook, yeah, bubble is always the worst! As far as poker.com goes: I was really surprised. I didn’t play there prior to yesterday’s freeroll and their UI is quite amazing, especially the things you mentioned (showing one card or both, which enables you to show the hammer even if you have to fold) and the animated smileys.

What really caught me off-guard was the rabbit hunt feature – I usually HATE rabbit hunts, but yesterday that button seemed so attractive I had to click it every time I had the chance to, lol 😉
