My First Math!
I have started praying to new gods. While the poker gods are cruel and evil masters the Donkey gods are liberating and loving folk. The Donkey gods are my kind of people. I really do not remember any special hands in the Hoy.. One thing that made it special is I took out EVERYONE I have ever thought was a donkey. I was able to take down Ick, Smokkee, Hoy AND Fuel all by myself! I could not have scripted it any better.
I basically played TOUGH strong poker. People bluffed off stacks and I was willing to make some read-based calls with second and third pairs. Sometime this made me look like a super donkey like when I called Smokkees all in button push with my SB hand of KQ. He had AJ and I spiked my king. The combination of being tougher in some situations and getting a NICE run of cards where almost everything hit combined in that perfect union to give me a decisive victory. Not only did I take the MATH down I also was NEVER out of first place.
The final hand with Hoyazo I think my taunting and showing of cards was getting to him. Either that or he was just so arrogant he thought it would be easy. Finally I take him out with the MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK! I flop an eight on an A86 board. Two diamonds. Hoy pushes all in with 96o and I insta-call. My thinking here is that he would not limp an ace. If I am wrong so be it. The donkey gods rewarded my tough play and gave me an 8 on the turn and a ten on the river to bury Hoyazo and take down a nice score.
A huge thanks goes out to Veneno for sponsoring me for this event.
