Joe Cappuccio and I must have been on a drug called "Charlie Sheen" this Sunday, because we were doing some epic winning all over the place.
It was honestly one of those sessions after a dry spell that made both of us remember just how much we love this game again, and why.
When I say that I don't just mean that it's fun when I'm winning and it sucks the rest of the time. Losing is never fun, but the only thing that's brought me as far in this game as I've come is a true love and passion for poker that has very little to do with money. Without it I'd have never pursued this dream and would not be the person I am today.
It's what keeps me going and hungry when I'm on downswings that stretch deep into six figures, like right now. I suppose it just courses through my blood the way tiger blood and Adonis genes do for Charlie Sheen!
The first of my final tables came in the PS $109 1 rebuy/1 add on turbo, which was about $45k for 1st. The turbo structure made the final table a crapshoot, and I busted sixth for $10,404.
Then I made the final table of the Lock Poker $60+rebuys guaranteed and had more than half of the chips in play five-handed, and more than five times as much as my nearest competitor. I somehow managed not to punt that large of a lead, and took it down for $4,884 to guarantee a nice profit for the day.
I stayed as hungry as always though, and managed to make the final table of the FT Sunday Mulligan. David Chiu, Ed "foxypham" Pham, and I had one hell of a three-handed battle for a while, but unfortunately I was the first one to fall in third place for $22,704. Congratulations to Ed Pham on taking it down though!
Joe "Joey Capp/Cappuccio816" also put Charlie Sheen's motto "I'm Bi-Winning!" into action by winning two tournaments outright for ~$40k himself.
Another one of my good friends who'd been running terri-bad had a huge score as well, and it seemed like my Facebook feed was full of friends who'd CRUSHED it for the day. All in all I've got to say...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8CPlF-IEkXQ
