Congrats Barry!
 
I'd like to inform everyone that our very own Barry finished 7th in the $500 Limit Hold'em event at Foxwoods Saturday night, finishing at the final table in an event with 500 participants!

I hope he jumps in and gives an accurate account of his final hand. I don't remember all the details, but it ended up being a bad beat. His opponent hit running 8's for a full house against his nut straight. [img]/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

Barry did manage to come home with a $9000 payday for his efforts.

Congrats Barry and good luck to all the 2+2ers at Foxwoods during the WPF.

The Carolina Hurricanes are a sham.

Were you there? I must've missed you. I was worn out after a day of Act IIs and went home when there were about 35 left left and Barry had a bigger than average stack.

Good to hear about his win.

I was there last night until about 1:00am. I was playing in the 4-8 (God I love that game!).

We really must have just missed eachother because I walked out of the ballroom when they got down to 40 players.

Thank you.

I found the pic on a Hartford Whalers website and thought I should use it.

The people in Hartford have confirmed that he is Satan! [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Congards to Barry for good job and outstanding showing.

I can say with confidence that the man is a class act and I am sure he bowed out gracefully.

See you guys down there soon.

When they got down to 40 I was in an Act II that was 4-handed.

Re: Congrats Barry!
 
They were playing those Act II's in the same ballroom I think.

I must have walked right by you. Sorry, maybe next time we'll have a chance to get together.

Picking up Buckshot from the Airport: -$9001
Making 19.5BBs in the ring game at Foxwoods: +$780
Seeing Barry make the final table: Priceless.

Congrats, Barry!

Buckshot had a nice wig though.

After much poker, I'm finally checking back in.

At any rate, I had a few good levels after the lunch break, mostly at the expense of Paul Darden who sat to my right for about 2 hours.

When we got down to about 16 players I had about T70K which was among the chip leaders.

One hand when at the 3K/6K level,I open raised with 55 in MP, the BB is the only caller, I flop a set with 2 [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], on board and the river is a [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] giving the BB a flush so I went to the final table with T55K about in the middle of the pack.

After getting no joy with AQ [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] and losing when my 99 lost to TT, and some blinds, I was down to T9K at the 4K/8K level and 2 players already busting out.

I pick up 97 [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] UTG and with only 2 BB's left I figured that this was the best that I was going to see and raise, the next player (the same one that hit the flush on me) 3 bets, all fold and I toss in my last 1K chip.

She turns over A6 [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]. As I'm contemplating my post-tourny activities, the dealer spreads the flop. Before I can even focus on it, the player to my right who is a FW's regular, says "Oh my god, he flopped the stone cold nuts!" Since my opponent was a woman, I sat up and looked at a 568 flop. I'm alive again!. The dealer burns and turns an 8, then she burns and turns and my right hand neighbor says "Oh my god!", I look at the river and it's another 8 and my nut straight loses to 8's full of 6's. Oh well, I was happy, first that I survived the first break, then the dinner break, then the fact that I made the money, then delirious that I made the final table, but was very dissapointed that I checked out of the final table with mearly a whimper. It's funny how you can be happy that you made it so far, but sad that you didn't go further.

Oh well, not too bad for a mediocre poker player. It will be the $1K buy-in limit tourney on Wed that's next for me.

Tough break, but nice job. Best wishes for continued success.

majQa' Barry. Good seeing you again. I'll be back down in the Acts on Saturday.

I bought the wig from a guy in the BB King for $10. It was worth it since the guy that got in front of me to buy beer bought 4 beers for us guys.
