Merry Xmas Recap

Weekend Recap: Played pretty well this weekend, but unfortunately I wasn't able to make it to a final table (except for a 45-man SNG, 3rd place). Once again I went out with pocket queens, this time where I was in a dominating position to more than double up to be in the top 5 in chips. With 28 people to go in the 3$ rebuy, here is the hand:

Full Tilt Poker Game #4594222235: $6,000 Guarantee (Rebuy) (34221058), Table 41 - 3000/6000 Ante 750 - No Limit Hold'em - 0:41:35 ET - 2007/12/23

I think I played as well as I could have, and its just too bad that I got sucked out on, but hey that's poker. My Bodog Cash Game adventures are going pretty well so far, aiming to get to $200 by the end of the week depending on how much time I can get in at the tables. On one hand (25NL) I called a standard raise and flopped a set. We both got our money in on the turn and apparently he had a higher set (of Jacks) but I got a 4 on the river to make quads. I would have traded that one for the 3$ rebuy suckout (1.2k first prize), but it was still pretty nice to suck out on occasion. I'll try to post a vid this week. Happy Holidays!
