This week's action included 23 players as my brother Derek sought to defend his title and try to become the first player to win Saturdays with Dr. Pauly on three different weeks.
The top 3 got paid prize money. Special guests this week included AlCantHang and GMoney who may or may not have been whacked out on gingerale and crystal meth.
My starting table included Sting11165, Derek, UrmaBlume, bingofan, AlCantHang, and boscodon.
I lasted a full eight minutes. Almost Gigli. Out in 22nd place out of 23. Boscodon busted two of us on the same hand. I had more chips that UrmaBlume at the start of the hand, so he went out before me and took down Gigli honors.
I had Qc-10c-6h-4c. Boscodon min-raised and I called from the big blind. The flop was Qd-5c-4d. I check called a pot-sized bet. Four players. I turned a boat when the 4s fell and slowplayed. Action was checked around. The river was the Ac. UrmaBlume bet 320. I min-raised to 640. Boscodon shoved all in for almost 1.5K. UrmaBlume called and I called my last 760. Bad move.
UrmaBlume and I both had the same boat Fours full of Queens. Bocodon had A-A-x-x and won the hand with the bigger boat. He took both of us out and jumped into the chiplead.
AlCantHang and jeciimd battled for the early chiplead.
At the first break, jeciimd was the chipleader with 6K and 11 players remaining. AlCantHang was second in chips.
Sting11165 bubbled off the final table in 10th place. jkalib began the final table as the chipleader.
The Final Table:dfense072 went out on the second hand of the final table, as quinedge took the chiplead. Cardgrrl was eliminated in 8th not too long after.
