Congrats Joe!

Another tourney, another blogger in the WSOP. A big fat congratulations to Joe for winning this one. It was great fun hanging out in the chat room cheering him on to victory.

As for my performance in the tourney…eh. You have about 50 other tourney write ups to read, go check them. Pauly I know has the best one overall.

I did get to double-up with the hammer, that was nice –

My twin took a blow to her stack right thereafter in a very similar fashion, AK vs. a set of 8s I believe. AK was truly the devil hand of the tourney.

Oh well. Don’t play to win really, play for the good times; and as always there were plenty.
