Quickie results update

Four tournaments played and one cash – 3rd place at Binions – put me into a small profit for the trip so far.  Then I blew it by losing nearly $200 at $2/$4 on the coldest streak of cards I’d seen pretty much ever.  The table was great, including a Hawaiian woman who couldn’t see the cards very well and sometimes just hoped she’d actually made a pair.  Wasn’t happening for me though – it was 2h45m before I won my first pot (must be a record) with pocket aces, although the table had dropped to 6 players at that point so it was a little easier for a big pair to hold up.  The very next hand I had AA again, it won a second time, but then every other hand I hit I ended up splitting the pot.

In the Binions tournament I stayed to watch the last two battle it out with stupidly high blinds and they actually kept it going for some time.  Then, the internet poker gods intervened.  On a flop of 789, both players get it all in.  One shows 78, the other somehow found a call with AQ.  Turn J.  River T.  Lovely.
