This series has to be rigged, right? How else can you explain the reason for the creator sitting in 1st place with four events left in the season. I managed to take 3rd place last night which was my 7th final table and 4th top three of the season. I was able to take over 1st place by 12 points. There is still 4 events left and its anyones title to win. Congrats to SmBoatDrink's first CHIMPS bracelet.

I can't wait till I get another memory stick for my digital camera so I can show you what I did while playing Step tournaments yesterday on Poker Stars. I was playing a step 2 with 5 people left. While 5 handed and a slight chip lead I managed to lose ALL of the following when all-in pre-flop:

A,J < J,10
A,10 < Q,10
A,J < K,Q

I ended up busting in 5th and getting a step 1 ticket. That's when my heel went through the drywall in my office (picture coming soon). Yeah, I can tilt pretty good. Naturally I open up another step 2 and with 5 people left I have about 5 bb's left, which was 5th at the time but about the same as 3rd and 4th. I get A,A UTG and shove and everyone folds. I go through the blinds and on the button I get A,A again and shove. I am called by the chip leader in the BB with K,J. Flop K turn J and I am out the door with a step 1 ticket.

At the same time as my step 2 was going I played in a step 1. With 4 people left I have 7500 chips and 3x as much as 2nd place. I manage to finish 3rd in that one to get a step 1 redo.

Its amazing how much more fun and easy it is writing about bad beats compared to wins and cashes. Be thankful Snarf that I didn't mention that 5,5 hand. Oops, too late.

AIPS is tonight along with a fantasy baseball draft. Now that will be some multi-tabling to see.
