I Actually Won

I play poker with friends from the law school. I'm not particularly good. Counting all games I'm at least $300 in the hole. I've left games with money on occasion... cash games where I leave with $10 extra or tournaments where there is an payout for third place.

Today I did better than that... I came in second. For all intents and purposes I should have been first. I had a dominating chip lead going into heads-up (I've never been in heads-up before, so being in a chip lead was even more shocking) and made the absolute correct call against my opponents all-in. With the game on the line I had Ace/King he had King/Jack... the River gave him a pair of jacks. Devistating. I still left the table with $20 more than I came with, so it was a good night and a great end to a very cool day.

I'll post about it tomorrow.

I believe that a "Gratz" is in order here.
