Return of the Dougbot
After making the OTP journey back from dropping her off at her parents' old house so they could put a few finishing touches on it before closing it out, I switched on PokerStars, only to find that the stupid thing wanted to upgrade in two parts.
Finally, I got logged in and to my table. I was down about 60 chips, having been blinded down the first 10 minutes of play.
But I was starving, so I switched over the helm to Doug, aka the Dougbot, who made me a ton of money on the WP one afternoon as I was four-tabling $5/10 limit.
I went to get something to eat.
But kittyluck made a turn for the worse, kuro's QQ got snapped off by AJ on the turn and his last hand was AT vs 77, which held up. It wasn't the Dougbot's fault, though. Using pure Phil Jackson strategy, I kept the Dougbot in until the very end.
Just like that, cat was out in 1,000th place or so. Prizes only went to 54 of the nearly 2,500 players, so it wasn't likely I would have won anything. I'd much rather the Dougbot's luck turn for the worse when nothing was at stake.
I did joke that Mark's luck would have him at 10th place -- the prize being having to play Wil Wheaton heads-up. Although Mark also bounced out, having him play Wil heads-up would be a fun thing to see during the blogger's weekend, wouldn't it? Wouldn't it? LOLOLOL
I heard that Vic and Ryan did really well, though! Way to go!
