PAPT and Pvanharibo

First and foremost, go check out LJ's blog here. She (PvanHaribo) did it again. Not only did she come in 3rd in the 32k few weeks back for a nice score of $4000+, she came in 3rd when she played in the tournament this past weekend in Vegas for a nice score of $3k, and now, she came in 3rd AGAIN in the 32k for a nice score of $5,300+. She played real well even though I missed out on the final table action because I had to leave for the home game that is the PAPT. But go show her some love over at her blog. Just incredible.

Well, not to be outdone by LJ, I decided that I need to step up my game. So I did. By taking down the PAPT baby!!! That's right. A win. Not a 3rd place finish. Victory. 1st place. Numero uno. Beat out a tough, tough field of 11 players (what, LJ bested 282 players? whatever) to score a nice $160 win (what, LJ got $5,343? whatever). Seriously... I was gonna do a full recap on a night that saw Sia aka PouringReign come back to Richmond for a special appearance in the PAPT but after what LJ just accomplished, I feel silly even talking about it. Again, go show her some love. Very well deserved.

As for the PAPT, it was a lot of fun. 11 person 1 table sng sucks in the beginning but as usual, the action was fast and furious from the beginning. In the end, Sia played well enough to come in 3rd, while I was able to take down the whole thing fairly easily once it got heads up. It always helps when you get good cards. It was nice to have Sia back in town since he moved to Florida at the end of last year. Talking in person is generally better than girlychatting. Much like live poker is more fun than online.

Since I'm feeling lazy about my post today, I'll leave you with this. Since the heads up challenge is starting, I decided that maybe I'll practice a few rounds and so I signed up for a $10 HU SNG. Very first hand, this is what happened.

Nice win today. Was close to sucking out on you when it was down to 3. Could have been interesting.

You were definitely the favorite after that hand with Sean (big stack v. big stack). The lesson there.....if you have a good hand...but not a great hand....never let the field see a free card.
