Raise or Fold:  A Year of Risky Business

Writing and playing poker as if they were activities worth doing well.

When they say "deep stack" they are not kidding!

I'm playing in a deepstack tournament on Pokerstars: 5000 in starting chips, THIRTY MINUTE blind levels, and a very gradual blind structure. We've been playing for four and a half hours now, and the blinds are only 200/400 with a 50 ante! The original field of 81 has been reduced to 18. Nine will be paid. This type of tournament should play to my strengths.

I'm currently third in chips. Please wish me luck!

Update: Finished 7th. Got two-outered for most of my chips (99 v. 22) and then 6-outered on the river for the rest of them (99 v. KQ). Apparently nines are not particularly lucky for me. Oh well! Played my ass off for six+ hours, and went deep. Made some money. Overall, it doesn't suck. Thanks for the friendly railing, Joxum! Off to bed now...

Unlucky not to do better, but good show.
