It was not a pretty night... I played not-so-good and walked away with a 23rd place finish in the first inaugural World Blogger Poker Tour. At least I wasn't the first one knocked out. My Q-J suited was no match for K-7. Alas... I had a great time playing with my fellow poker bloggers!
There were 32 players (each forking over $20) for a prize pool of $640. First place took home $256! And the first six places paid out.
Who won? Mean Gene took home the first WBPT event! He edged out The Fat Guy who won a hand with four Kings! Wow... I was rooting for the Fat Guy!
Alas, if you don't know... Mean Gene is also running for President! He'll now have some more campaign funds! Congrats again to Mean Gene, the Fat Guy, all my fellow poker bloggers, and expeically to... Grubby, who hosted this event!
The Final Table:
1. Mean Gene
2. The Fat Guy
4. Poker Code
6. Poker Penguin
7. Felicia Lee
8. Love & Casino War
9. Life of Falco
10. The Cards Speak
The next event is: March10th!
HDouble had a mini-write-up on his site. Here's what he wrote about me:
Poor Pauly. I made a loose call with J2h in the big blinds, and flopped J2. Pauly called me to the river with his pocket 9s, and it didn't leave him much room to work with. Pocket 9s seemed to be the big loser this tourney...Actually I think that I folded Q-Q to HDouble's J-2 two pair! It was not happy to do that, but HDouble had been bullying me all night!
