The Grand

Just saw The Grand, which had been waiting in my DVD stack for a while. I thought it was a quite good poker comedy or indeed a good poker movie. A "mockumentary" in the style of A Mighty Wind or Best In Show.

Also, I've enrolled in Full Tilt Poker Academy. There's a time and place for everything - and it's called college.

Also, you have corn in your teeth.

Brag: In the District Championship in online Texas Hold'em at Svenska Spel Poker, I lasted longer than last year's winner. Everybody did, since he was the first one out in 40th place (two pair vs flopped flush).

Beat: AKo vs AT clubs, rereraise all in before the flop. A Ten on the flop and I'm out in 13th place.

Variance: One player was sitting out the whole tournament, seats won in satellites were not redeemable. Still, he beat more than half the starting field. 15th place, I think, since I was the one who knocked out him and one other shortstack in the same hand with a runner-runner straight making me 10th of 13 remaining.
