I was looking forward to the Blogger championship on Pokerstars.
We started at 2pm with 1336 bloggers. At about 15 minutes in, there were technical problems that had multiple players disconnecting. Then, I had personal technical problems when my connection got lost (I hate SBC!). Finally, around 2:35, I got connected again.
Then I woke up with KK and got all in preflop. He had JJ. I flopped a King (he rivered a J of no consequence). So, after all the problems I had with my connections, I was pleased to double up so early. That put me in 77th place out of 1190 remaining.
My M at the 1-hr mark was 25, and I decided to tighten up for the next hour. Good thing, as I got some crappy cards. I didn’t see the flop from 3:00 to 3:27. The pot was raised with JJ and I shoved all in with AK. I flopped a King. He rivered a Jack. Down to 7k in chips. A couple hands later, I ended up all in with AQ against….Jacks. Third time was a charm, and I busted out in appr 700th place. Another rivered Jack for good measure. Crap.
