Home from the Poker Mecca of Las Vegas
I will write an entry covering my experiences of a poker nature while I was in Vegas last week but for now I just wanted to report briefly (honest) on a tournament I just played online. It was a $3 rebuy satellite to UB's $200+$15 Sunday Evening $100,000 guaranteed tournament. I rebought only once and ended up finishing 36th out of 148 when I found my pocket Queens (naturally) up against Kings. To make it worse the other player hit a K on the flop. I briefly thought I'd doubled through when the river made my flush. Unfortunately it also made his full house busting me in 36th. I think I played well, continuing what I felt was overall good play in Vegas last week. I could also have laid down the Queens I guess but that seems like it might have been harder than to make the all in raise I did. At least I raised all-in and didn't call off all my chips. Naturally though he didn't take long to make the call.
