Sooooooo close!!!!!!!!!

Some poker moments really suck! I could taste it. I was already picturing myself playing in the WSOP. It was mine. And then it was gone.....

I do want to play in the WSOP. It is a dream of mine. So I signed up tonight with 1000 of my stars FPP and gave it a shot. After six hours....here is the result.



Thanks to Smokkee, Fluxer, and Jessie for railing me.

you played extremely well Poison. sorry it didn't work out.

i've been close twice before also. i finished 2nd in a $160 double-shootout on stars in '05 and bubbled the WSOP 1k Qualifier on Full Tilt last year.

the last hand you played was just an unlucky situation HU.

That's a heart-breaker. I'd have thought once you got heads up, there was no way you could lose.

An unfortunate turn of events considering the sheer amount of effort and will you put into that tournament. You wanted to win so bad! Next time, Jackie...

Just terrible. These bubble finishes really leave me gasping for breath, even just reading about others going through these things. I feel terrible for you, but who knows maybe this is a sign that next time the shit comes your way.

Damn, wish I'd logged on last night to rail :(

Excellent job regardless of the result.

My heart sank when I clicked on that picture. Great showing!!! Good luck with your other events.

Veneno said...

Thanks guys! I'm definitely gonna try again. Be watching.....

Chipper said...

Oh wow. What an emotional drain that must have been to be 1 bet away from winning it all. Grats on 2nd but to get nothing for that effort really sux. Didn't that other guy realize that he was going up against the HU Queen of Poker? Damn fine showing regardless. You deserved it.

I've been remiss in reading blogs recently. When I saw this, my jaw dropped. Good luck in your other attempts, and I hope to see you in the 100 Seat Guarantee on Sunday.
