The theme lately has been 2 rounds. The new theme this week, was that I was winning.
Round 1 had 4 players. We played 4 handed for quite some time, and then after Tim exited, we played 3 handed for a long while longer. When Andrew showed for round two, we were still going at it. Traci nursed a short stack, and finally went out. The heads up between Jordan and I lasted for a long time as well. I had a large chip advantage, and eventually wore him down and then out.
In round 2, Tim was again the first to exit, followed by Traci. Jordan went out in third, and Andrew and I played heads up until around 12:15 or so. We began the heads up match with me holding around a 4 to 1 advantage. Andrew sunk low to start, rebounded to about 140 chips or so, and then went down again. The final hand was an all-in by Drew, and I called with A-Q. Andrew turned over Qc-Jc’s. The turn dropped a second club on the board, but the river missed us both and I took down round two as well.
For next week, we’ll be playing at a casino. I don’t know which yet. Andrew had thrown out Hollywood Park as a suggestion. I’d like to play in a tournament if at all possible. But for Andrew’s birthday, we’re celebrating seven deuce style.
