Andy Bloch and the TPT

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!

This weekends home game

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 in the TPT

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.

Monday night at the Palace

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!

Last nights TPT

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.
