I kept thinking of this song last night. The lyrics don't really fit, but boy, did I fall apart in BBT4. To tell the truth, I have no idea what happened. February and March were great months for me. I was doing well in BBT4 and in private forum games. April saw a great decline in my success, and May was almost a total failure. Nothing I did seemed to work. Some games I just played poorly, in some I was crippled by suckouts, and in some I just had a bad streak of running a lower overpair into a higher overpair or some other disaster.
As a result, no BBT4 Tournament of Champions for me. Additionally, I was in a great position on the overall leader board to score at least a little cashish, but blew that too. Frankly, I am glad that BBT4 is over. A big thanks to AlCantHang for setting this up.

Who will make the big scores in the TOC? I think that Chad made an interesting comment last night on BuddyDank Radio. Many of the bloggers are recreational poker players. How will things change when $10,000 is on the line? Will people still push with A-Jos? How tight will things get when the field narrows to 30 ... or to 20?

In the Immediate Future ...

I feel like I need to tone down the amount of my online poker play. I much prefer playing live in a casino or home game.

I have only two weeks until I finally get some vacation time away from work. I plan on going to a White Sox - Cubs game, playing in a WSOP event in Las Vegas, and maybe taking the family to Memphis for a weekend.

Bummed to see you weren't making the trip to MN. :-)

I played in only 3 BBT4 events. I might have played more if I found the time, but I too am only a recreational player. For some reason this spring, I was choosing sleep over donk-o-ramas.

Again, lot's of luck in Vegas! Can't wait to read the reports and I really wish I was joining everyone there.

Ah, I would have liked have seen you in the TOC. My own BBT4 was pretty much non-existent, I may have played five events, and being Gigli in the Brit Bloggerment last weekend was highly appropo.

I hope you run truly deep in the WSOPament, and get lots of great stories to share with us!
