Got my first post up at the UltimateBetBlog. I am on the clock! The UltimateBet Online Championship starts on Friday…and there’s a H.O.R.S.E. tournament…on December 9th…I know how much bloggers love that horse…

Played the Mookie tonight, got chips early, and then Mr. Speaker and I traded Hammer blows. He pushed me off pocket sevens with an all-in Hammerbluff, and then the very next hand I won the blinds with it. Then after I tucked my tail and folded to another of his all-ins (this time he kindly showed sevens of his own), I got the Hammer the very next hand and won the blinds. Showing down, of course. Oh, the audacity!

And then it all fell apart, so quickly. I won a nice plot when I made a nice re-raise (with sevens again, odd) on an ace-high board, and I started to think I might make a deep run. But then my AQ blundered into aces, and the next hand I was racing with A-6 against pocket threes. An ace on the flop! Right next to the three on the flop! And I’m done in 19th place. Crap!

    Write the words “RSS Feed” on a brick and repeatedly bludgeon the geeks who run the Ultimate Bet Blog with it. That will get your message across.
