Add a Mookie to my Dookie Collection. Wait, that doesn't sound right.

Double the chips and slash the field and I can do some damage. Of course, hitting an inside, straight flush draw didn’t hurt. I didn’t realize we had more chips until five or so hands in. As is my routine at 10 pm on Wednesdays, I was playing another MTT and two cash tables when the Mookie started. Finally focusing for a second on my table, I wondered how so many people had doubled up so quickly. I soon realized my mistake and it was go time! Armed with so many starting chips, I was able to play those marginal hands I usually fold. That’s right, I played 88-JJ and AQ as long as no one had raised in front. It was so freeing to be able to play like the rest of you super aggressive monsters. I doubled my “saw a flop” statistics up to an amazing low double figures. Full Tilt called me halfway through to make sure my account had not been hijacked by some maniac. That was more fun that Kat’s Friday night rebuy.

As always, thanks to Mookie for hosting.

Congrats! I was super p*ssed last night when I donked off my chips (I was VERY healthy before these two hands) when I had 55 and 88 on back to back hands... I forget when to tighten up and when to be loose. Wrong timing. Considering how badly I played against you and yet I got lucky and won, I was very happy to see you take it down. Great job!
