The Journey...


Yahoo...but the abuse!

So I tried my hand at a 4.10 NL Hold'em Knockout tonight.

I actually won it... So I am thrilled, however...

I played one hand by gut, I was short stack...holding a A 9 in my hand. Checked all the way to the river and followed my gut to call all in. I had 700 at the time. The play trippled my stack...this made me happy. However made another player (the one who lost) livid. I'm talking, name calling, tearing me down "F****** weekend noob" kind of rude mad. I chose to ignore it...for about 5 minutes. Other players finally just told him to stop whining, and eventually he stopped talking. On the other hand, every time I played a hand (as I 99% of the time play tight aggressive) he'd call all in. He didn't last long, and I wasn't the one to get the knockout for him.

I'm happy this didn't make me tilt, but I am glad I won my first money tourney.
