Finally

Was able to finally play and concentrate in the blogger tourney today on Poker.com...thanks in most part to my mother-in-law being with us this weekend and watching the kids for the afternoon. And it paid off....first place, $125 and qualified in 20th for the tourney and a chance to play for the trip to the Aussie Millions in January. Made 20th by 3 points, so it ended up that I had to win the event to get enough points.

Couple of big hands that propelled me to the final table were a flopped straight against KK that I took out a large stack, and then a flopped set of Js that took out two players (QQ and AK I believe)...I'll post more when I have a chance to get the hand histories from Poker.com....the site is doing maintenance and I can't get them right now.

No more time to post right now...have to get ready to deal at a charity event now.
