The Hammer!!!

by Luckbox

I've got a couple of things to hit in this post. It's Iggy-inspired, but not quite up to that standard.

That's right, the title says "The Hammer!!!" but you'll have to wait for the end for that. If you don't know about the world-famous Hammer Challenge head over to Poker Grub and read all about it.

First, the blogroll has been updated/cleaned up. I've adjusted blogs according to how often/recently they've been updated. It's not a blogroll, I do it by hand right now, so it only changes when I change it. We're up to 28, although Felicia is not technically a blog (not yet, poker bloggers are working on it!). Please check them out, there are some great new ones there.

Second, the Timebomb is officially a hit. Otis invented it, now it's spreading like a virus. The latest to catch the bug? None other than Wil Wheaton. Check out the comments.

Third, I haven't gotten the fancy symbols loaded on MT yet because I'm an MT idiot. If there were a plug-in for that, I'd be fine. Instead... well, I'll keep trying.

Fourth, I've got a big decision this weekend. I have two UB Tournament Entry Chips (TEC's) now and must decide what to do with them. I could use them to enter two different $100 tourneys for a shot at a trip to Aruba and an entry into the Aruba WPT event. Or, I could put them together and enter the $200 Sunday tourney. Any suggestions?

Finally, what you've waited for, the Hammer. First a disclaimer: I don't qualify under the rules. It's a .25/.50 NL table, and the winning pot was well under $5.00.

Hand #948119-308 at Potomac (No Limit Hold'em)

Hand #948119-308 Summary:

No rake is taken for this hand.
cusephenom wins $1.75 with flush, ace high.

And here was the chat that accompanied the huge hand:
cusephenom: It's the HAMMER!
BVGrimley: I wanna know how many notes that generated?
cusephenom: Yep... guess I'm on a few buddy lists now.
BVGrimley: lol

BVGrimley actually called out 72o next hand, but was forced to muck it to a big preflop raise. Good thing he did... the guy caught a 9-high straight flush.

That's all folks... it's well past my bed time!
