Great Night Last Night for Friends of SluggerWV

Mathclub was only able to final table 3 tournaments yesterday. He spread out the success over three different sites as well: finishing 3rd of 411 in the 15k Guarantee Rebuy on FullTilt, 4th of 135 in the $1500 Guarantee Rebuy at UltimateBet, and finishing 4th of 144 in the 8k Guarantee on Bodog. These three tourneys paid MathClub more than $2500.00. Great job Sir. Keep it up.

Agriffrod finished 2nd of 612 in the FullTiltPoker $65,000 Guarantee, bringing in $13999.50. Nice cash sir and very well played.

Friend of the Blog and great guy SICKTIGHT311 made the final table at $3 tournament at PokerStars on 03-25-2008, bringing in $141.65 for finishing 6th out of 1349.

Great job guys. Keep up the good work.

Final Table at UB!

I haven't been able to play as much as usual the past couple of weeks so it was nice to get to the Final Table in the $6.50 Bounty Tournament at UB. I really enjoy the bounty tournaments because it seems easier to get action with your good hands from the stacks who can double you up. The highlight of the evening was having two people call my all in pre-flop when I was dealt KK and then flopping quads! I took down a couple of bounties and entered the final table 5th in chips. I was able to increase my stack when Ak hit a King on the flop vs JJ. Unfortunately, the hand that crippled me was an all in w AKs pre-flop versus QQ. No help and I was soon out in 4th. A very nice payday and a great capper to a wonderful weekend.

Good Luck at the tables everyone.

Another final table machine, Louiemdj, made 2 more final tables today. Congrats Louie and thanks for the rail man.


I made the money in one tourney at FullTilt and might have gone deeper but a pot for more than 20k in chips saw my QQ lose to KJ after a preflop raise and a huge pet on the flop by me. Of course a King on the turn sent me to the rail.

A really good March 14

I really enjoy playing in the bounty tournaments on UltimateBet. Those tourneys always seem to draw a lot of players and remind me of the glory days of UB where each NLHE tourney at my buy in level attracted 400-500 players.

I had a good tournament right from the start when I was dealt JJ on the first hand. One of the limpers called the raise and a Jack hit on the flop and the turn was a full house. My opponent called with a pair of fours and a straight draw all the way through the river.

I was happy, not only because I played more aggressively and well, but because I finished 17th and won 3 bounties. The tournament only has a $3 +.30 + $1 bounty buy in but also has a $3k guarantee. So my total take of $22.50 plus the 3 bounties netted me almost 6 times my outlay.

The great thing about bounty tournaments in my opinion is that it is easier to play a short stack when you get a hand bc people will call with a wider range of hands.

Broke the cashless string

After a frustrating few days, I limped into the money in a $5.50 NLHE MTT on FullTiltPoker. I was actually pleased with my play tonight as I was much more aggressive in the hands I played. I did have a disconnect problem that cost me several rounds of blinds and antes. I got my money in w AQ v 66 with slightly less than ten bbs after the 66 limped in. He hit a 6 on the flop and I was toast.

Good luck everyone.

Have a great evening
