Mr. Dreamy gets Poisoned

I had just arrived home after taking the kids to Downtown Disney for a few hours. We did the Build-a-Bear thing, ate at the Rainforest Cafe, and then watched the Knockout all girl band perform. My girls had a good time. They danced during the performance. And my little girl did the puppy dog face to get me to buy their CD which came with a free poster. So how could I resist? At the end of the session, the band signed the poster. It was worth the $12. The girls were so excited. They thought it was really something special. So anyway, I get home. Fire up the computer. Start up Yahoo IM. Waffles is on, so I ask him, "What is the plan?". He replies, "Razz Tournament..10 minutes". Okay. I'm game. Never played this before. Didn't have a clue. Sounds perfect. So I register. And then ask for guidance. He gives me his basic strategy. And I am ready to play some Razz.

Before the tournament starts, Mr. Dreamy sends me a message on IM for a Heads Up challenge. I tell him that I am getting ready to play in a Razz Tournament, but will be ready for a match after it is over. But the Dream Boy could not wait. He had the urge for a HU match with Veneno. How could I deprive him? It just wouldn't be right. So I sit out of my Razz Tourney just to coordinate getting our HU game together. It only took a few hands to take down the Dream Boy tonight. And true I needed runner runner hearts on the final hand to beat him. I think you will enjoy reading the challenge as presented below:
