King of Rebuy Donks (TM) is my official title for the night. After a brutal session of PLO(8) at Stars, where boat over boat and stuff was the norm, I played Kat‘s rebuy madness tonight, after missing it last week for the first time in ages. After nothing much going on early, I was able to chip up in the middle stages and just when I thought I was golden, I got kicked in the junk. I hold TT on the button and I’ve folded hand after hand after hand. It’s IG’s BB and I pop it, she repops and I insta-push. Now, I see that not all players might pay attention to “small details” at all times, but how can you instacall with 77 there. Now, I usually don’t comment on people’s play like that, but that hand really put me down. Alright, 77, a pair, but even if I was making a move with two face cards or something, you’re probably only on a flip. But oh well, 7 on the flop and I’m down to 4k.

I push a few hands later with KQ and get called by K8…my hand holds up. A few hands later I push again with TT and get called again…Jx…Jack on the flop and I’m ready to pack it up for the night, but no…runner runner straight….wheeeeee. At that point fluxer was the overwhelming chipleader, while the other four (including me) were fighting over the remaining chips. He really put on a clinic on how to play big stack poker. I went on a little rush and knocked out player after player after player and once we were down to headsup I was slightly less than a 4:1 chip-dog. That all changed once the first cooler came down (TP for fluxer….trips for me on a paired board). I gave the chips back a few hands later with the same thing (me TP…trips for fluxer)…then the crucial hand came down…JJ vs KQs…I flop the set and it holds up and I’m 4:1. Way to go…I won it a few hands later and reclaimed my seat a top the donkey rebuy world. Sweet….big shout out to fluxer who really deserved to win and he probably would have if the flip had gone the other way…but that’s the way it goes…let me just do a random pic dump before I finally go to sleep…make sure you scroll a little as the hands are pretty sick…especially the one with a flopped royal flush, got any percentages for that?!

GG — twas’ fun jousting with you throughout the tournament … you played well and are well-deserving of the win.

I also did a write-up on my blog, but it sucks.

Nicely done!

BTW, the verification word here was “flush” *grin

Thanks…and flux, thanks for the link-up and *lol*…this statement just made my day…*lol*

And lucky of course means I shoved KQs into JJ preflop HU ( what else am I going to do with two FaCe CaRdS, thah nutz!) putting me at a chip disadvantage causing my result (demise) shortly thereafter.

Cya all next week…
