Congrats to Trisha Pena on her big win in last nights Twitter Poker Tour.Trisha has not played in a few weeks.And boy did she played great.After taking a bad beat and being down to 4500 in chips.She played her game and came back to win the tournament and the $75.00 first place prize.As far as me I never had more then 5500 in chips .But I did hold on to get 8Th place.Once again congrats to Trisha on one of her best game ever,
As many of you know Full Till Poker as a new TV. show called Face The Ace. On this show a amateur poker player goes head to head with one of the Full Till pros. To Qualify Full Till is running 180 player satellites tournaments.Well on the 19Th I played in one of the tournament and late in the game I took the chip lead and I won the tournament.So I advance to round 2 on the 23Th.And in that tournament there was 4138 player and only the top 165 would advance to finale qualifier.Well I was playing great and I had 45,000 in chips and was in 10Th place.So I just held on and only played great hands and was in 80Th place when the tournament close.So now I will play again on Nov.9 were the top ten player will be on the show Face The Ace and will play for up too 1,000,000. So wish me luck.

On Saturday I came this close to getting win #45.But I run into the Black Widow and her bite took be down. It happen in the 1St game.The game for me was not going very well.In early parts I just could not win a hand.But i held on I made the finale table and the cards started turning for me.And before I knew it I was heads up with a 3 to 1 chip lead.But I was heads ups with my coach (The Black Widow) Trisha Pena.In 3 years Trisha and I have only gone heads up 2 times.And the score is 1 to 1.Well this one turn into a blood bath. After Trisha took the chip lead only once did I get close.She had a 10,000 chip lead on me when I had K J off suit in the big blind.The flop came 9 9 J.So I when all in and she called me and show J 9.She flop a full house!!!!!To give her win # 35 with American Rounders.Then is the 2Th game Trisha won AGAIN.Giving her win #36 and her 1St back to back in almost a year.So in closing I guess I was not a very good student.Because the teacher took the student to school AGAN.And congrats to Trisha on two big wins.

Day 5 started at 6:30 again.And after my 7:00 meeting I was back on the road. Day 5 is always the busiest and longest day of a World Changer project.In the early part of the morning I was seeing to the last minutes need of the work crews. I send a lot of time Fridays running from one site to the other.As a crew runs out of material we will try to use the unused material from the other sites.After about 5 hours it was tine to head to lunch.Friday we had pizza and it was good. Then we got the word that the crews were getting done.For me that meant I was running the unused material back to Metro Roofing.Once all the roofing had been return then it time for the clean up.For a few of the sites there dumpers were full. So I had to go to 2 job sites to clean up.The 1St one was easy.But when I got to the 2Th site there was more trash then I could get in my truck.So i had to get the other runner to help me.We drove to the other site to unload our trucks as we were unloading Kevin and Le Ann to tell us that we were done.It was 6:00 and after 11 hours I was happy to here those words.This year we had 175 volunteers who came from NC. SC. MI. MS. IL. LA. GA. AR. and TN.These crews replace 12 roofs and rebuilt 1 porch.In closing I would like to thank all the volunteers and Kevin and Le Ann Hale and Park Ave Baptist Church our host church.And most of all I would like to say Thank You to God for letting me be a part of this week.

Day 4 started at 5:30.I had stayed at home Wednesday night so I got up early to get to breakfast on time.And after my 7:00 meeting I was on the road again.This year we used Walker Lumber and Metro Roofing for our materials.But once again rain in the forecast so our crews stayed tough.So I was busy keeping the crews with the material they needed.Each day at noon I was to meet with Kevin and Le Ann and have lunch and give a round down of how things were going.So after lunch here came the rain and I was thinking things mite be slow BUT I WAS WRONG!I got a call about 1:30 from Le Ann asking me to head to one of the sites because the crew was DONE and there was roofing to be return.I could not believe that any of our crews could be done that soon with all the rain we were having.About the time I got to Metro roofing I got a call tell me that a 2Th crew was done and they had roofing to return.That was incredible.So i was running hard to 5:00 and put on 123 miles.But we got a lot of work done even with the rain.

Well today started at 6:30 again.After I get up I head to breakfast and have me some pig. (Bacon)Breakfast this year has been good.And after that i meet with Kevin and Lee Ann Hale the project coordinators to see what need to be done for the day.So I head out for my 1ST run of the day.But then the rain came again.So ever thing starting slowing down again.Then it stop about 10:30.By then the crews were able to get the last of the old roofing off.And now most of the sites are ready to start with the new roof.With the rain stopping I was back on the road driving a total of 82 miles today.Wednesday is a 1/2 day so I was done by 1:00.So i will be staying at home tonight and sleeping in my own bed.Nice
Day 2 was a wild day.I was able to sleep in on Tuesday.( i got up at 6:30 I know it still early)And as the day started the weather was nice.And the crews were getting a lot done.On all of the roofing jobs the old roofing is rip off and some of the job sites we replacing the decking.But then the rain came and work came to a craw.I was staying busy till the rain came.But then around 11:00 the rain stop and the race was on.From then on I was running all around Nashville.I put on 118 miles on my truck and made 10 stops.I got done at 4:00pm.

As I have told you I been a run of bad luck for weeks.But I hope that mite have change. Saturday was a good day at the table.Saturday I play 2 games with American Rounders.The first game I came in 13Th not much to talk about.But the 2Th game was much better!I was able to win some hands and I came in 3Th.That was my 1Th final table in a few weeks.And then there was the home cash tournament.My friends Matt and Dr.Reney hosted a game at there house this week.And let me tell you they know how to host a game!The Food (and there was a lot of it)was Great and the company even better.And as far as the game go's I had a good time there too.In the early part of the game I built a good stack of chips and held on too cash in 3Th place and double my money.In the late part of the game I when card dead and at times like this I always fall back on teaching of my coach and try to be patient so I real happy too come in 3Th. And I have to say this group of friends are some of the best people around.Once again I must say Thank You to Matt and Dr.Reney for hosting the game,and Mitch for bring the cards chips and tables tops.So it was a good time for all!

Tonight in the Twitter Poker Tour poker pro Andy Bloch was in the tournament.He was flying back to Veges from Europe.And he had a 5 hour lay over at JKF.When the game started I won a hand ever now and then but for the most part I was card dead.When we got to 27 players Andy was moved to my table.And let tell you it was fun to have Andy at our table.So when I got down to about $1000 in chips I was waiting for a hand to go all in with when I got K 10 off suit.Well I raised Andy re raised and the big blind when all in.Andy and I called.Andy showed pocket 7 the big blind showed pocket A s (wow).The flop came 10,8,5, the turn was a 5 and the river came a 10 giving me a full house 10 over 5 and the main pot.And with that I took Andy Bloch out.( me taking a poker pro out too cool)But after that I when card dead and came in 13Th for the night.But I will allways remember the night I beat a poker pro Andy Bloch!

Over the past few weeks I have been playing in a home tournament on Saturday nights.We been playing a $15 buy in with a $5 bounty.This weekend we had 15 players.For the most part I was card dead in the early part of the game.And i only had $4500 in chips at brake(we started with $6000).But I stayed patient and when it was all over I had won the tournament and the $105 1st place prize money.And I took out 6 players ( over 1/3 of the player wow) and made $30 in bounty's.That not bad $135 from a $20buy in. That go's to show you what my coach all ways says, that patience is the key to this game.And once again it pay off big time.

Tonight was the last game of season 2 of the Twitter Poker Tour.I was the points leader going in to the night.I was 38 points a head of 4 place.For most of the game I did not have any cards or chips.But I was patient and I did make the finale table but i when out in 9Th when I got pocket Q's and he had pocket As(oh well)And with that I most likely lost the points lead.The only player who could over take me came in 7th.But I did have 2 wins and $150 in winning so it was a good season.
Wednesday, April 8, 2009
On Monday nights I play at the Nashville Palace.This Monday was the first time I played in 3 weeks.And once again my bad luck came with me.It so bad that when i raised with K Q suited to $250 and 7 2 off suite called and hit 2 pair on the flop.But the good news was my friend Trisha Webb won the 2Th game.Trisha is one of the best player around and you do not wont to go heads up with her.On Saturday Trisha and I went head ups for the first time.I had a 3 to 1 chip lead on her.And she wipe the floor with me.So never go heads up with Trisha Webb you will be sorry!

In the short history of the Twitter Poker Tour there as been only one two time event winner. That is until now.Because I won last night game and the $75 first place prize.(wow that $15o in the last 4 weeks)When we got too the finale table I was 5Th in chips and I played my game and soon we were 4 handed and in the cash and I was 2Th in chips.And from there it was on.When we went heads up he had a 5000 chip lead on me.And slowly chip away his lead till he was 1000 ahead of me.And then I got K 10 suited in the small blind I raised and he called.The flop came K 8 K (WOW) I bet 2000 ( the size of the big blind) and he called.The turn came Q again I bet 2000 and he came over the top and when all in so I called.(What was I going to do)He showed Q J the river was a 6 I had trip King and the had a pair of Queens and I had a 40 to 1 chip lead.And 3 hands later it was over.And now I am leading the points going to the last week.I just hope I can keep it up.
