Acorn takes the victory - representing the ROW team

In the 3rd USA vs ROW (Rest of the World) Blogger Event held today, it was Little Acorn who took the victory. This time we played a regular Multi Table Sit N Go, so there were non-bloggers in the mix. Below are the final results of bloggers only:

#2 - Zagga (ROW - LittleAcorn from United Kingdom)
#3 - Yosoyveneno (USA - Veneno from Los Angeles )
#5 - GCox25 (USA - Gary from Oklahoma)
#7 - Davee3283 (ROW - Dave from Australia)
#8 - TripJax (USA - Jason from North Carolina)
#10- Grupper (USA - mystery blogger)
#11- PokerDwarf (USA - Chipper from Colorado)
#12- DeadMeek (USA)

Acorn deserved this victory with his excellent play. Below is the move where he outplayed me and took a big chunk of my chips.

Not sure I would have done anything different here. Was hard to call with the flush and paired board. If I bet more on the flop the result would most like have been the same. Acorn made an excellent move by pushing and I laid down the hand that could have split the pot. Dang!! Nice play Acorn.

Then later he took me out in a race with my AK sooted vs his QQ. See shot below:



This is really sad guys...we are 0 for 3 now!!!! This undefeated status cannot continue.

Great tournament, I thought you were going to score the first W for USA. Tough couple of hands there at the end.

I had a ball listening to y'all in the chat room during the tourney. I think I need to pick up a headset before the next event.

I had fun despite my early exit. I vow to do better next time!

Sorry I missed out on the chat fun on Yahoo. I'll have to work on getting that set up for next time.

I'm on AOL IM and did have a few good quips with Gcox during the event.

Looking forward to the next challenge.

I want to officially announce that I am defecting to team ROW. US players be damned. I can only take your vicarious defeat for so long!
