Steeler Josh meets the Poison

After a 2 hour drive home on a Friday night....I rush to the computer to check if Josh is on and ready for our battle. Shortly after I was on, Jordan helped to hook us up and get the battle started.

We were both anxious to see the outcome. It was our first meeting ever. So we didn't know much about each other. I did do some homework reading a few of his recent postings.

It was definitely FATE..as Josh stated ..."Looks like fate brought us together in round 1. Should be a fun time regardless of the outcome!" But Josh was not having the fun...he actually made that comment during our second match..and I replied that our first meeting should have been more sweet. After 61 hands we end the match like this:

steelerjosh is at seat 0 with 745.
yosoyveneno is at seat 1 with 2255.

teelerjosh posts the small blind of 15.
yosoyveneno posts the big blind of 30.

steelerjosh: -- --
yosoyveneno: Qs Ah

Pre-flop:
steelerjosh raises to 60. yosoyveneno re-raises to 180. steelerjosh calls.

Flop (board: 9s Ac 3d):

yosoyveneno bets 360. steelerjosh calls.

Turn (board: 9s Ac 3d Jc):

yosoyveneno bets 1080. steelerjosh goes all-in for 205. yosoyveneno is returned 875 (uncalled).

Tournament all-in showdown -- players show:

yosoyveneno shows Qs Ah.

River (board: 9s Ac 3d Jc 2d):

(no action in this round)

Showdown:

yosoyveneno wins 1490 with a pair of aces.
