2+2 SNG $10+1 NLHE on STARS 9:30PM EST (Wednesday Jan 28)

At 9:30 Eastern, 8:30 Central, 6:30 Pacific Wednesday

I will sign on to the first available empty $10+1 18 player NLHE SNG on Stars.
It may take a few minutes after the hour for a previous table to fill.
I log on as DrPhysic. That's how you find the table.

After the game starts, I will post "DrPhysic 2+2" on the chat line. All invited to do so using either Stars login name or preferably 2+2 login name.

All 2+2ers who play that are not already on pm notice list, please pm me with Stars name so we can send invitation to future games and include you in the reports.

All 2+2'ers invited.

See you then.

Would all who have played in the SNG games, or wish to,

that are not receiving the weekly schedule by pm,

please send me a pm with your stars name. The ability to match your 2+2 name

with your stars name helps us send notices, and write better reports.

The players who have played in the games that we cannot identify, whom we believe to be 2+2

Anyone who is a 2+2er and does NOT reveal themselves may be listed as "random" on the final order list when the results are posted.

I'll play tonight.

I am hoping to play...I have been in a tailspin since my brief moment of glory last week, so I need to either A) win again, or B) get drubbed out early (as expected) and refill my karmic batteries.

01-28-2004, 04:18 PM
Name Clarification. I have had questions about this:

Many 2+2ers use same name on the poker sites. Some do not. Some who do not, log onto the game, then put thier 2+2 name on the chat line.

A few choose to not reveal their names which is ok.

Send me a PM with a request to be added to the address book for SNG notices if you want them. Does not have to include playing name.

It's their business if they choose not to out themselves. They are of course welcome to play anonymously.

At 10:30 PM (or thereabouts), an hour after DrPhysic's games start, after some people have busted from his regularly scheduled event, I'd like to get a $5 one table PLO8 SNG going for those who'd like a practice event preceeding tomorrow's KotZ PLO8 multitable. No real official start time, I'll determine that once I gauge how many players are interested during chat in the regular $10 event.

And someday the rest of us are going to catch you, william, Kurn, thomastem, and cris all on the same bad day.

01-28-2004, 06:58 PM
Geez, is it donation time again already? A week sure goes by fast. I guess I will be there making my weekly contribution. Later.


01-28-2004, 08:20 PM
It's my intention to play.

See you there.

KotZ specialist MobyDick still in, heads up against cmoun4 (not sure if he is 2+2 or not). I finished third - not quite sure how!

I do not if we allowed 2 outsiders to venture in and take 2 of the 4 spots of our beloved weekly, but if so, I suggest that we are not so kind to outsiders (unless they donate their money to us)!

The tournament began tight, with some nice plays, until Lori decided to unleash her vengeance on table 1. Before I blinked back, she had ousted 2 players. Lori became the early chip leader with T4000. As we all know, we cannot spot Lori that many chips early!

Ian15 grabbed a nice pot as his KK held up JWP folded on the river passing up 1800.

In one of the best hands of the night, Seats 1, 2, and 3 were all in .. Carfty (Q/images/graemlins/heart.gifQ/images/graemlins/diamond.gif), Craig (99) & StageMusic (A:diamond, J/images/graemlins/diamond.gif). A flop of (AK7K7) netted Stage T4000+.

Vinny (AA) & Counselor (AK) the commune cards helped no one, thus Vinny’s bad day was just prolonged.

Vinny and Opus were lucky enough to involved with one of the other best hand of the night.

Dealt to VinnyTheFish [K/images/graemlins/spade.gif A/images/graemlins/heart.gif]
Dealt to opus xx [T/images/graemlins/diamond.gif K/images/graemlins/heart.gif]

[3h 6s 7c] [4d] [5c]
opus xx: shows [Td Kh] (a straight, Three to Seven)
VinnyTheFish: shows [Ks Ah] (a straight, Three to Seven)

MobyDick said, "lol"
VinnyTheFish said, "lol"
Stagemusic said, "LORD"

Opus did grab FOUR jacks in a memorable hand:
*** RIVER *** [Ts Js Jd 6s] [Jc]
opus xx: shows [Jh Qh] (four of a kind, Jacks)
jwp22: shows [2s 2d] (a full house, Jacks full of Deuces)

As the final table hit, to no one’s supply, play really tightened up. But as if tonight’s table was not crazy enough (The final table looked as such):

Seat 1: marcoray (1530 in chips)
Seat 2: lorinda (3995 in chips)
Seat 3: Stagemusic (2540 in chips)
Seat 4: filobeto (4493 in chips)
Seat 5: MobyDick (2395 in chips)
Seat 6: jwp22 (1563 in chips)
Seat 7: Fouzetty (6290 in chips)
Seat 8: opus xx (1664 in chips)
Seat 9: VinnyTheFish (2530 in chips)
jwp22: posts small blind 75
Fouzetty: posts big blind 150

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to VinnyTheFish [5d 5c]
marcoray: raises 300 to 450
jwp22: raises 1113 to 1563 and is all-in
marcoray: calls 1080 and is all-in

*** RIVER *** [9h Js Th 6h] [7h]

jwp22: shows [8h 8s] (a straight flush, Six to Ten)
marcoray: shows [3s 3c] (a pair of Threes)
jwp22 said, "wow"
jedi333 [observer] said, "straight flush!"

In original 2+2 style many showed their “seen the flop” stat, most under 13%. (* you tight bastards *)

All was quiet for a long time until 2+2 favorite Stagemaster ran into:
[Jc 5d 6d 8s] [Td]

Stagemusic: [Jh Ts] (two pair, Jacks and Tens)
jwp22: [Ad Qd] (a flush, Ace high)
jwp22 collected 7080 from pot

Opus’ luck had run out when:

*** [2c Jh Qc 4c] [9d]

Fouzetty: shows [Jc Ah] (a pair of Jacks)
opus xx: shows [As Th] (high card Ace)

Short stacked, I went out next with QTo (stop laughing) as Lori called my semi-bluff with AQo, commune. Offering no help to anyone.

JWP’s TT, had a hard time overcoming the KK’s of Fouz. This was a monster T $13,000 pot and a commanding chip lead and maybe the tournament victory right there.

Lori then starting walking toward 2nd place with an Ace high (pair of 4’s on the board) victory over Moby.

The next hand Fouz. Had his AK spades hit the flush on the turn. That enough to beat Filo’s Jack high flush. (Leaving the table heads up). (14,000 vs. 12,000)

Fouz never really gave up many chips and took first on two pair, Aces & Jacks.

See ya next week!

Lori, look at it this way:

I will soon be invading my old homeland (the Zoo) as KotZ, then I will kick out all the spammers/affiliates and we all be again a happy family /images/graemlins/grin.gif

The future is bright under Moby's ruling /images/graemlins/grin.gif

<ul type="square"> Don't tangle with the big stack, especially when he's the only one that can do you damage.
Be able to lay down hands and wait for better moments.
Be careful on the bubble, especially when your stack is larger than several others. [/list]
All lessons I've read and apparently not learned on these forums. I forced my TT into Fouzetty's KK and found myself reduced to 0 chips.

And the winner for "Biggest Knucklehead Move on the Bubble", goes to JWP!!!

I do not agree with you 100%. You were the short stack, at which time; you must be aggressive (choose your spots). Most of us would have taken our chances with the level 2 starting hand, considering more so that you had pocket 10's.

I am not and will not argue your move, as we all makes choices that we regret OR jump for joy as we river the hand.

I will argue that at least you had a top 20 starting hand, unlike me, who challenged the table with QTo.

So to ease yor pain, I will take the "Bone head award from you."

01-29-2004, 06:20 PM
Vinny, thanks for trying to relieve me of my award. However, (without having the hand history in front of me) I believe I was the 2nd largest stack at the time, and pretty close to 1st. That's why I kind of hated my move. I remember some raising and reraising before the hand (already starting to block it out) and think I should have laid down after I was reraised.


01-29-2004, 07:33 PM
Very good point, I, too, believe you were the 2nd stack
