I was invited to play in an invitation only tournament Sunday afternoon. This tournament is played on the third Sunday of every month. The premise is for everyone to have fun and even though you play to win you are having fun even if you lose. Prizes are given out for the first person to bust out of the tournament and then if you reach the money bubble, and go out, you get a prize as well.
You start out with T$3,000 in chips and you can increase the amount to T$5,000 by bringing two cans for the local food bank and if you show up early and get signed in on time you get more. This last one we brought school supplies and if you brought a certain amount you increased your chips. It was fun and we started with fourteen players.
I got myself short stacked and had to struggle to get back to the starting stack of T5,000 and that is where I pretty much stayed and eventually made it to the final table. I eventually went out in seventh place. I had so many all-ins that I was pretty much prepared to go home at any time. At least I lasted until then.
Playing poker has taken a back seat right now since I really want to play the cash games but not the ones around here. I am thinking about taking a weekend and travelling north and playing either the 3-6 or the 4-8 limit games. I would like to get involved with an Omaha game around here but just haven't done it. They have a Wednesday and a Sunday game.
School will start towards the end of September for me and having our house painted and re-roofed was important. I have been working on the new fence in the back and that takes time as well. So much to do when you are the home owner. I keep looking for the landlord but can't find him.
Have a fun day......
