Decision Time on Donkey Island

Last night's game of the Survivor Poker Donkey Island was a wild one.  It was a turbo format so it was expected for the action to go faster.  It turned out, that we didn't need an accelerated blind schedule to have some big hands.  Here are 2 of the craziest for the night.  All the money was in preflop both times.

Fortunately for me, I wasn't involved in either of these pots.  After these crazy hands, that left just Turtle and I battling for immunity.  I've been on the chopping block for the past few events but have been able to be the last one standing and stay safe until the following event.  I knew how important it was for me to outlast Turtle but it wasn't to be.  TwoBlackAces was running like a God and when I did challenge him, he had my underpair in bad shape.  I wasn't able to pull a Buddy and hit my out so that ended my night leaving Turtle with immunity.

With immunity granted, we were able to cast our votes to Buddy.  The votes were read and the final tally was 3 votes for SmBoatDrinks and 3 for myself.  Since there was a tie, he and I will battle it out in a $5 heads up match at 9PM EST tonight.  The loser of this match will be the next player voted off of Donkey Island.  I really think tonight's game will be the linchpin for the makeup of the final 3 players.  This is the biggest event that has happened since the Goat slaughtering a few weeks ago.

See some of you tonight, and the rest I'll see you in the inagural Dank on Wednesday.  Also, thanks to HeffMike for providing the great stats.

March Madness

After a very slow start to 2011, I have been crushing March.  I'm 4 for 4 this month in home games and my last 2 Survivor series games.  Skidoo and I chopped last night for roughly 100 a piece.

This gave me much needed immunity.  We are to the point where it only takes one vote to swing the decision.

First Cash of the Year

I've only been playing bloggers games this year and have gone the big O-fer in cashing.  That's especially bad when you are playing in a Survivor league with much better players.  I've been in danger of getting voted off each week, but fortunately, things fell my way by either a team win, or a power struggle gone bad.  Between my time on BDR and watching the scheming behind the scenes, this has been a really fun series.

Well, I was hit hard enough with the deck tonight to pull out not just a cash, but a victory.  It was made even nicer thanks to AlCantHang and FullTilt.  They provided a little gravy to our cutthroat contest.  This was a multi-entry tournament and since I suck at multi-tabling, I just went for the 2 buy-in option.  The highlight of the game was when BamBam pushed in to my four of a kind on the turn when we were heads up.  Weeeeeee!

See ya in the Mook / Dank on Wednesday.  Oh, and as a side note...... Daylight Savings Time blows!  It's the dumbest thing right behind Columbus Day.
