Are We There Yet?

Only one more day till Vegas. While browsing through the updates this morning I see that Chris Falconer is currently 9th in chips with just 10 people remaining in the $1500 Omaha8 event. I met Chris in the Chicago airport on the way over to Macau. We hung out a little over there and managed to snap the picture over on the left. Hang in there Chris! If he makes the final table I will be there one day late. Damn it.

Tuesday night I played CHIMPS which was Stud8 and The Booze Cruise which is 1/2 PLHE and 1/2 PLO. The attendance was disappointing as there was only one table for each. I ended up finishing 3rd in the Booze Cruise for a very small cash ($3.50 profit WOOT!). CHIMPS went a little better. I was able to accumulate chips slowly and got heads-up with 3-1 deficit. I was able to battle back and take the lead when the following hand comes up:

That one hurt a ton. I was busted shortly after that one was over.

I have been playing a lot of PLO8 lately. I love this game. In the handful of sessions I have played so far the game does not seem to have as big a swings as PLO. Maybe I haven't played enough hands yet, we will see. I deposited $200 onto Cake last night on the advice of Gambit. I played $0.10/$0.20 PLO8 last night and was up $10 in short order before I played in a tournament.

Also last night Gambit, deadmoney, Snarf and myself played a 90 player $3 knockout SNG. When we got down to 36 people Snarf, Gambit and myself at the same table ALL IN A ROW. We all made it to the final two tables but only one of us cashed (Gambit). I was busted in 11th. I was crippled when AQ<AJ all-in pre-flop. Meh.
