The Mookie

Played in The Mookie tonight and took it down. 54 players, a lot of 72 offsuit raises, and a heck of a lot of fun.

I had pocket Kings hold up twice, including this key hand that Mookie posted on his blog. This hand gave me the chip lead and the ability to play some big stack poker.

Hand replay from Mookie's blog.

When we got to the final table, I was surprised to find out I had a 4:1 chip lead over most of the other players. I hadn't been paying attention to the leaderboard or other tables. I raised a lot trying to put other players into a decision to play for all their chips. It worked pretty well. One by one the other players dropped out. At the third break, we were down to 3. I had over 100K and the other two were just over 20K each.

AK beat A10 on the final hand. I never saw the King on the flop until I saw this screen shot on Mookie's blog. I got so excited after the final hand, I think I banged on the computer and lost mouse and keyboard functions....had to reboot.
