Bloggerpod Freeroll Update

I'm so proud (sarcasm warning).

I actually missed the start of this event. I showed up 25 minutes late.

The play at this table was something to behold. It was clear that it was a FREEROLL and everybody was willing to throw it all in there with little or no hand to speak of. I decided to sit back and pick my spots.

I worked up a decent stack finally only to have my KK run into a person would was unwilling to lay down A2 sooooooooted.

I was left with a piddly few chips but I managed a comeback when my panger (Q9) hit trip nines to triple me up.

I made it all the way to the bubble when my 88 ran into QQ. NH, GG, IGHN.

I hate freerolls.

Congratulations to my good friend Lil who managed to hang on to take second place and an iPod!

You might want to change up your strategy and start getting your money in there second best.
