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.

What a pic.

The Carolina Hurricanes are a sham.

Hey Barry, great to hear about your success. Good things happen to good players. Hope to see all the FW crew very soon.

Re: Congrats Barry!
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.

Re: Congrats Barry!
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.

Re: Congrats Barry!
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.

Re: Congrats Barry!
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.

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

Re: Congrats Barry!
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.
