Poker 07/31/2007 The Elks Club
We decided to go together for the 9 PM tournament. It's a $40.00 tournament with a re-buy or add on for the first hour. 4000 tournament chips and 25-50 blinds to start so not too super tight of a structure. We started with four players but ended up with 10. I ended up going out 7th, I had been building a nice stack until I raised with A-7 two away from the button. The flop came 6-7-8 and the big blind who had called my raise raised to 2500. Well I thought that no calling hand would be winning here so I pushed all in calling the bluff. I had his stack covered by about 3000. He called and had flopped the straight. Blinds at that point were 300-600 so I didn't last much longer.
I'm so glad to find a place to play locally! That drive to Foxwoods was getting pretty long.
