"Sweet Caroline" - Neil Diamond

Well as expected I didn't win the karoke contest, some 50 something who sang Turn the Beat Around, some other dude I dont know, and this really funny kid who sang Sweet Caroline ended up taking the top 3 prizes. Bunch of donks!! I kid.

So last night I actually did well at 2/4 Stud 8, Made 100 bones, so I was feeling going into the OE Riverchasers. Started off en fuego as I quickly amassed enough chips to shoot into 1st by a decent early margin. Then Stud 8 came. I can absolutely play winning Stud 8 for cash, apparently not so winning in tourneys. Same old, I'd start with A-2-4-5 in my first 4 cards, then end up with all sorts of garbage, just enough to miss both the high and low. This happened quite a few times. Then Omaha came back around, and I hit a set on the flop, but Wonka draws out a flush on the river. The last hand I played I was on frustration tilt. I did have Q-Q-x-x double sooted, flop was 7-3-7 and I know Im beat dead, but just in case I catch that miracle Q i keep re-raising till im all-in. No Q comes and wonka knocks me out with a boat of 3s.

After that I joined the 28k guaranteed since it was still early in the evening (10:30?) and I started off great again:

So its easy to see that CPo didnt raise his 9s, slow-played the flop and didn't value bet his set on the turn enough to get this donk out of the hand.
