I won the Mookie / Dank last night! It's been a long time since I last won one of these things, so it felt good to finally get back to the winner's circle. Unfortunately, this was a less widely attended Dank - 15 runners - but it still remains a feat in the blogger world.
I'm not going to claim that I played brilliantly; I sucked out when I needed to, but I had my fair share of getting sucked out on...
Numbono and I played heads-up for about 15-20 minutes, where we were going back & forth with stacks. He's certainly a pretty good heads-up player, and we continue to trade shots until we got into the following situation:
Full Tilt Poker The Dank No Limit Hold'em Tournament - t250/t500 Blinds + t50 - 2 players
The DeucesCracked.com Hand History Converter
Hero (BB): t30180 M = 35.51
BTN/SB: t14820 M = 17.44
Pre Flop: (t850) Hero is BB with Js 9d
BTN/SB raises to t1500, Hero calls t1000
Flop: (t3100) Jh 3h Tc (2 players)
Hero checks, BTN/SB bets t13270 all in, Hero calls t13270
Turn: (t29640) Ac (2 players - 1 is all in)
River: (t29640) Qs (2 players - 1 is all in)
Final Pot: t29640
Hero shows Js 9d (a pair of Jacks)
BTN/SB shows 9s 9c (a pair of Nines)
Hero wins t29640
Congratulations to Numbono for his finish, as well as a new player whom I can't recall seeing at the Dank before, MissTourGuide (if you leave a comment with a link to your blog, I'd be happy to give you some link love).
