Played this final event after the freeroll qualifier and won a $215 tournament buy in This is the extract from the official Pokerstars blog 7:33pm--Fubsy63 falls in 19th place With less than seven big blinds remaining, Fubsy63 pushed all in for 41,645 from under the gun. Tiibo moved all in behind him for a bit over 84,000 and the rest of the table folded. It was a race situation, Tiibo with 8d-8c for the pair and Fubsy63 with Ah-Ks for the overcards. The board ran out Qc-7c-7h-9h-9c and Fubsy couldn't improve, hitting the rail in 19th place. With 18 players remaining, we've moved up a pay level-- everyone is now guaranteed at least a $320 tourney buy-in. Now some people may think that I was silly to play here and I have posted the Hand below PokerStars Game #23135847945: Tournament #170000000, Freeroll Hold'em No Limit - Level XXV (3000/6000) - 2008/12/21 19:32:55 ETTable '170000000 4' 9-max Seat #3 is the button Seat 2: Tiibo (85216 in chips) Seat 3: blahdy (131591 in chips) Seat 4: Lesage88 (77229 in chips) Seat 5: justalady42 (7346 in chips) Seat 6: Fubsy63 (42395 in chips) Seat 9: Olimpinho (326884 in chips) Tiibo: posts the ante 750 blahdy: posts the ante 750 Lesage88: posts the ante 750 justalady42: posts the ante 750 Fubsy63: posts the ante 750O limpinho: posts the ante 750 Lesage88: posts small blind 3000 justalady42: posts big blind 6000 *** HOLE CARDS ***Dealt to Fubsy63 [Ks Ah] Fubsy63: raises 35645 to 41645 and is all-in Olimpinho: folds Tiibo: raises 42821 to 84466 and is all-in blahdy: folds Lesage88: folds justalady42: folds Uncalled bet (42821) returned to Tiibo *** FLOP *** [7c 7h Qc] *** TURN *** [7c 7h Qc] [9h] *** RIVER *** [7c 7h Qc 9h] [9c] *** SHOW DOWN ***Fubsy63: shows [Ks Ah] (two pair, Nines and Sevens) Tiibo: shows [8d 8c] (two pair, Nines and Eights) Tiibo collected 96790 from pot *** SUMMARY ***Total pot 96790 Rake 0 Board [7c 7h Qc 9h 9c]Seat 2: Tiibo showed [8d 8c] and won (96790) with two pair, Nines and EightsSeat 3: blahdy (button) folded before Flop (didn't bet)Seat 4: Lesage88 (small blind) folded before FlopSeat 5: justalady42 (big blind) folded before FlopSeat 6: Fubsy63 showed [Ks Ah] and lost with two pair, Nines and SevensSeat 9: Olimpinho folded before Flop (didn't bet) Ok here goes......I could have folded and possibly moved up another prize level,but my thinking was I'm in it to win it and AK at that stage was good enough any comments greatly appreciated

Premature Evaluation

I know I'm probably tempting the wrath of the poker gods........again,but here goes. Despite all attempts at donking my cash away its been a reasonable poker year, I'm not in the same league in terms of poker skill or limits that I play at compared to a lot of players but Ive had a reasonably profitable year. My poker tracker results for Cash are not as good as I thought they were, but they can only improve now that Im getting to grips with the info and stats, my tournament results are not too bad with some good cashes. So as we hurtle towards 2009 my poker goals will be: Fully understand Pokertracker Play more live Qualify for a major event.......oh and win it lmao be more profitable Learn more about this,the most annoying,frustrating oh and enjoyable awesome game that is poker.

WBCOOP satellite

Played in the blogger sat on stars which I noticed on No Cash's blog (many thanks) and qualified for the final,along with fellow Awoppers Teamdobbs and Gimac. Also played in the Bronze Awop VIP tourney,busted out when my 77 ran into 88......oh well,still its cracking value as its freeroll into a £300,£500 or £1000 live event through the AWOP VIP club in association with Virgin.

My head hurts

.........trying to get my head around the stats in Pokertracker 3!!!, don't get me wrong I think its a cracking tool and will help my cash game (god knows it needs it),and have used the trial versions of PT2 and PT3 so I should have a little idea of what I'm doing, it will be well worth the $89.99 when I fully get to grips with it and fully understand where my game needs tweaking to make me a more profitable player and plug some of the leaks in my game.
