Yeah, I'm A Rocket Surgeon

As I was blogrolling today I noticed a post from Iggy urging us all (bloggers) to head on over to PokerStars to sign up for this Sunday's WPBT WSOP Satellite . Apparently there were only 13 people signed up as of his post entry. Ungood...I had to take action. With the bulk of my bankroll hanging out at Noble Poker, I figured I had better get started on the transfer of funds from Noble to NETeller.

Then, suddenly, I had a poker epiphany. Why don't I go check out my Stars account and see how many duckets I have available. It had only been 5 days since I dropped $60 in my account in preperation for the 1st WSOP Satellite. Having not played on Stars since then, I had a good idea what I had left, but wanted to make sure. Prior to my deposit last Sunday I had a whopping $.75 in my account which leaves me with a currently huge balance of $27.75.

Not having the total $33 needed, I immediately started stressing as I figured Noble would drag their feet in getting the transfer completed as they did before. Then, suddenly, I had poker epiphany #2. I said to myself, "hey jackass, why don't you play some freakin poker to make up the rest of the dough needed to sign up." It is, in fact, why we deposit money into poker accounts right...to play poker right? It doesn't take a Rocket Surgeon to figure that out, but sometimes my brain is stuck at work with all the wire transfers, stocks, bonds, options, etc. I deal with on a daily basis. So instead of playing poker to get my buy-in paid for, I'm thinking about wire transfers and other ways to move money. Sometimes it's good to move money by just playing poker huh?! Aaahhh, what a concept.

So I started checking out which games would work best for me. I hadn't planned on playing poker tonight so I didn't want to put a ton of time or effort into trying to make $6. I decided I didn't want to play any limit or no limit cause I wasn't looking to blind away cash trying to make $6. For me lately, the no limit tables have been something like this...I drop the bulk of my table stake early and then take down 1 or 2 big hands late to get myself up for the session. In the end a good thing, but too much hoopla tonight when I just wanna get my stake in the WPBT tourney.

So I decided my best bet was at the heads-up tables. I've been playing tournament poker well lately and my heads-up game has been going very well. I plopped down at a $10 winner take all (obviously) table. It took all of about 5 seconds for someone to join me and we were officially running. When the player sat down at the table I - for a split second - thought I was about to be playing Iggy. Alas, my eyes were deceiving me as it was someone using the screen name All In Izzy.

I must say that was just about the easiest heads up game I've ever played before. And I'm not talking about catching Rockets on the first hand and beating someone over playing Big Slick easy. I'm talking about playing maybe 30 hands and just destroying the guy...no matter what cards I held. Granted, I did have some decent cards in the hole, but even when the flop didn't hit me, my bet was met with a fold. And when he bet a board I didn't think he got a piece of, I was raising him like I was baking a cake. And of course, he was folding like a warm dry towel. I felt like we played a lot of hands, but we never even made it to a blind raise. Leading about 2400 to 600, I raised his $20 big blind to $59 (my favorite number) with 10 10 in the hole and he pushed for his final $600. I made the call and was happy to see his 10 K leaving him only 1 live card. The board never made it above 5 and just like that I had won $20 (or rather $10 since half was mine).

Therefore, I'm happy to report that I've signed up - 15th this time - and I urge you to do the same. Come on folks, this is the friggin WSOP, and you don't have to beat a field in the thousands to qualify or even climb the Steps over at Party Poker to get a seat. You can qualify for $33 and face maybe 50-100 people. Pretty damn cool. And if you're solely a reader, fear not, next Sunday will be your chance to earn a seat by staving off defeat (lame attempt at rhyming...sorry).

Gonna cut this one short tonight folks...gotta get some sleep...the baby is keeping us up at night these days...but she's so damn cute I don't mind one bit. If you haven't caught a glimpse of her, check out the post below for a pic.
