What a blast! That many bloggers in the same tourney (I think that's illegal in 10 states). The banter was priceless.
It's amazing the noise a bunch of bloggers can raise from the rail!
I played well..(for my standards) and looking back at the numbers I played REAL TIGHT (seeing the flop at a whopping 12% clip), which with some of the maniacs sitting in this tourney, looked to be my best shot.
Lesson #1 Part 24,354. Not everyone is pushing you off your blind, sometimes they have a good hand!!! ( I have GOT to get this through my thick noggin).
At least 11th is respectable, ahh screw that, I wanted better.
