Chipping Up

with Bryan Robison and Don Deutsch

Tuesday, July 31, 2007


lolz hi

I'm Bryan

and I'm back

I haven't played much poker in the last year. Laziness? yes. Lack of money? yes. Excellent questions by the way. But I shall be returning to felt soon. I've been back for a few preliminary events. But the real stuff is coming soon. With that excitement also comes the return of the 215 crew. Well...part of it at least. The Benador, Bragin, and Marte are all coming back to the digital felt as well. WOOOOOO. I am as pumped as they are to be back. Look out for all of them on Pokerstars, along with me on there and Full Tilt.

Speaking of Pokerstars and winning. I have to congratulate my man Don (doublemeup1) for taking down the $3 with rebuys event on Pokerstars last week. He took home over $5,000 for his efforts and I was there railing the entire time. He didn't even have to rebuy once, which is a great help not being in the thank for 30 bucks one hour into a tourney. He played great poker, got lucky in a few spots, and hey even put a player on tilt with Q8. I was so proud. He's been playing excellent poker as of late, and I knew it would only be a matter of time before a big win occurred. Congratulations Don, you deserve it. I expect more wins in the future.

As for me...well it's about time for me to get back to work...

Ben shares his luck with me

Not much today, but I do have a nice mini story to tell. More on that later.

I played a $5 No Limit Hold Em Tournament on Pokerstars that Dan told me about at the last second (Thanks Dan..haha) I registered, and sit down in the big blind. I see I have AA. Great...I hope everyone just folds to me. Small Blind raises, I consider folding..seriously...but go all in instead haha. He has KK. K on turn. I can honestly say I gave it my best shot...

Then I register for a $4 SNG that Dan and I play, he gets knocked out with 99 to QQ. But I double up early with KK, but then I find out I have to go to work for a while....so I ask my man Ben to play for me. I come back to an IM that says "I'm sorryyyyy" He made a great call with 2nd pair went all in and the guy instantly called with a gutshot straight draw. He made it. Thanks for playing for me Ben!

Here is my story though:

Phil Ivey sits down at the 500/1000 Limit Hold Em Game on Full Tilt with $20,000.
PillarPAX217 (Observer): is that Dags 20K Phil? Haha
Phil Ivey: lol pillar
HA! Mr. Ivey himself talked to me. To a normal person that may seem like nothing. But for me, it means something. One, Phil is one of the, if not THE, best player(s) in the world. Secondly, Phil does not play online very often. Thirdly, he never talks, except to say “brb” to the table. That took my somberness from bad play yesterday away. It is that simple..it just takes a poker professional to “talk” to me.

You think that's corny, but when's the last time Mr. Ivey talked to you?

Good day.

First Post....Long day

Woke up at around 11, and registered for the HORSE Tourney on Full Tilt for 1130. Bad idea.

I felt like Negreanu in the 50K HORSE Event. I could not win a pot. I've realized too many players chase, and will chase just if it is for a low. So I was out early in that one in the first level of Stud Hi/Lo

Then I go to Pokerstars and play a $5 NL Hold Em Tourney there. Not too bad...K7 diamonds in BB, have a limper. Kxx on flop with one diamond. Check, check. xdiamond. Bet, call. Well it doesn't matter what hits river, I am pot commited since I was short stack. Well, needless to say K7 somehow loses to AA....bad play on my part.

Well, luckily there is a $5 NL Hold Em Tourney on Full Tilt. AQ vs. JJ. End of story.

I figure my luck must be turning though, so why not play the $8 satellite into the Sunday HORSE Tourney? Oh wait...people chase! Worst was 66 on button in 2nd round of Limit Hold Em. Flop is 6J3. YAHTZEE! I've got a set. No flush draw. BB bets, I raise, 4 callers. Turn is 2. Still no flush draws, checked to me, I bet, 1 caller. River is 4.....no way someone would have a 5 here right? He bets, I call, 55. Good game Bryan.

It is now 535, and I might be done for the day early...oh well. So I figured I should make a blog and whine constantly even though I played like crap. I hope you enjoyed the first of many pointless and idiotic blogs.
