There is only one thing better than winning money at the poker table, that is winning it with no risk. Even a mere $1.60 for two or three hours effort.
The Party Poker Pokerfest is nearly over, and it had been rather a disappointment, until last night. Even then, the 10 point buy-in was hardly a triumph, but fortunately, Our Hero was also playing a small cash buy-in, the $6 stud, and with a bit of luck in that, finished 3rd of 9 places paid, nearly as good as earlier this week when he finished runner up of 6 paid. Last night there were 68 runners; the Hold 'Em freeroll saw a field of 3,128 competing for the $1,000 prize pool with 400 places paid. Okay, forty dollars clear profit is nothing to write home about, but it's more than they pay me here!
May 4, 2012: The 10 point buy-in No Limit Hold 'Em freeroll. Well played, but don't give up the day job.
