Okay, tonight has just been TOO cool in the poker arena.
On a whim, I decided to entire the weekly WWdN Invitational tourney. The WWdN in that refers to Wil Wheaton dot Net. As in the actor. I’ve mentioned him on here before. The really cool thing about these tourneys is that if you knock Wil out, he names the next week’s tourney after you. So, guess what happened? You guessed it! I knocked out Wil Wheaton.
Here’s the hand that did it:
PokerStars Game #4054574335: Tournament #20140943, Hold’em No Limit – Level III (25/50) – 2006/02/21 – 21:02:49 (ET)

Obie34: calls 60 and is all-in < -- in the hand, but almost broke
Robbie Robb: calls 100 < -- Call Wil's raise
*** FLOP *** [Tc 9h 8c] < -- So the flop isn't GREAT for me, gives me an open ended straight draw so...

Wil Wheaton: raises 640 to 790 and is all-in < -- Wil goes all-in here.
Robbie Robb: calls 640 < -- I think about it briefly, and then call. I've got a bunch of outs for my straight. Wil turns over 7s 7c. I've got a lot of outs: 7d,7h,any queen, any jack, runner-runner queen-king, or any ace
*** TURN *** [Tc 9h 8c] [4c] < -- no help for me, gives Wil a flush draw. Cuts down on some of my outs.
*** RIVER *** [Tc 9h 8c 4c] [Ad] < -- BINGO!

So, that hand knocked Wil out of his tourney. No big prize or anything for knocking Wil out; however, next week’s tourney is going to be named the WWdN #16: Robbie Robb Invitational. How cool is that??? (okay, it would be cooler if I won money too but still pretty cool!)
I continued to play fairly well until we were getting close to the bubble for final table. To make any money on this tourney, you needed to make final table. Here’s the hand that did me in:

Dealt to Robbie Robb [Qh Th] < -- Suited one gapper. Kinda low but at this point I was pretty desparate for a pot. I was actually hoping to steal the blinds on this one...

The Subhuman: folds
CawtBluffin: calls 4475 and is all-in < -- SHIT!
bogieboo: calls 4270 < -- FUCK!!!! CawtBluffin turns over Kc Ac and bogieboo turns over 9s 9c
*** FLOP *** [8h 6s Kd] < -- not much help. Gave Cawt a pair of kings. I've still got some outs though...
*** TURN *** [8h 6s Kd] [Jh] < -- This helps. Any heart = Win! Any ace or 9 = Win. 9h = straight flush for Robbie!!

So that was the end of my tourney. I busted out 12th. Three more spots and I’d have made the final table and made some money. Still, it was a terrific night! I’ll definitely be back next week to play in the tourney named after me.
