I had a great time playing with my fellow bursa303.city bloggers! There were 32 players (each forking over $20) for a prize pool of $640. First place took home $256! And the first six places paid out.
Cngrats to: Mean Gene who took home the first WBPT event! He edged out The Fat Guy who won a hand with four Kings! Wow… I was rooting for the Fat Guy!
Alas, if you don’t know… Mean Gene is also running for President! He’ll now have some more campaign funds! Congrats again to Mean Gene, the Fat Guy, all my fellow poker bloggers, and expeically to… Grubby, who hosted this event!
First Draft Complete
I finished the first draft of The Baby and Winky Movie sometime Saturday night. The screenplay is 217 pages. It’s a monster! The original manuscript, Sweet Nothing: The Baby and Winky Novel, was only 52,000 words and the screenplay is 3,000 words less… after I cutout several sections. The formatting makes the screenplay longer. I’m going to post more specifics later this week to my regular blog, in addition to a writing sample.
Now it’s time to celebrate. There’s another home game tonight hosted by Ferrari. I’ll talk to Rick from Rick’s Cafe & Ugarte’s Poker Grovel tonight about his thoughts on last night’s event.
Parting Thoughts: About Last Night
Alas, the NYC boys did not do so good, with Rick busting out 31st and me out soon after in 23rd. But the Jersey boys kicked ass. Sean and Tight Pocket played strong. Is there anyone else I’m forgetting from the area? I hope maybe I can get together with those guys sometime… I’ll drag Rick and Ugarte down to AC for some at the Borgata.
I also want to say that I was unable to say hello and talk with everyone. I apologize! I tried my best and I did not recognize names/sites/faces… I did not get the chance to meet-and-greet everyone. Next time I hope there’s a forum where we can all talk.. kinda like a Loser’s Lounge where I can watch Iggy do keg stands of Guinness, get commentary from Phil Gordon, and share bad beat tales with my fellow bounced bloggers.
I’m sure you’ll agree the first event was very hectic and there was almost too much to handle at times. I was jacked up on herbal supplements, trying to watch 3 or four tables, chatting with the guys at my table, and playing my crappy 7-7 against the table bully HDouble… all at the same time! I would have overloaded if I put on Sex in the City: The Final Episode.
Until then, see ya. McG
I never got around to posting the odds. I’m sorry about that. It was originally a joke… not to be taken seriously. Alas, I was swamped with work this past weekend, in addition to making a Feb. 28th deadline for both Project Greenlight and my literary blog-zine Truckin’. The good news is that I finished the first draft of the screenplay! I hope to work on Truckin’ this week.
I got knocked out now… I was doomed. I had very little chips and the blinds ate up most of my stack. On the button, I had Q-J suited. I went all-in with $295. I got two callers… K-x from Chigins and 10-10 from Poker Watch Dan… A-J-3 was the flop and I was leading… and a K fell on the river to end my night!
