Dan's winning Pokerpalooza hand!
AGP’s 3rd major of the year, Pokerpalooza, has come and gone! A new concept in blogging was attempted for this special game. JD Deckard and Mike Krisle “live blogged” the game as they played. The result is remarkable detail along with an actual feel of the game.
For reference JD Deckard’s post are in black, while Mike Krisle’s are grey. Neither player spoke to each other about what they were writing. The following is the actual time of the blog as it was written.
9:18 – Its Pokerpalooza baby! What’s in store for this big game? It’s been a wild quarter with multiple wins by Buzz, unfortunately, he won’t be able to finish his great quarter as he is under the weather. The KOP is not gonna make it either, so its left up to the rest of us to duke it out for the 3rd major of the year. Will Alan show he’s not just a streaky player? Will JD take down all the Omaha pots and solidify his place in AGP lore? How about the Poker God? He is on a roll lately. Can Daggum win yet another major? Can Quad Steak finally reach the victory lane? Mark is gotta be a favorite with his recent dominant performance, and don’t count out Mags. He’s playing better than ever. One thing is for sure, it’s Pokerpalooza and we are all in. Hopefully not in first hand! Daggum!
9:19 : As much as we try to start on time, it never happens. We’re waiting on Mark and Bryan. It sucks we’re down 2 players tonight. Buzz was out early with an undisclosed illness. Troy’s absence was unexpected. His daughter was wounded and had to be taken to the e.r. Hopefully, he’ll update us on her condition. As the saying goes “the show must go on”. Delaying the game by a week was an option, but this would’ve left Daggum out for sure as he has to work next Tuesday. 38 minutes late, but finally underway…
