High variance, low-handed
No matter, as you get to see a lot more hands and it's only a $5 game anyway. lol. BrainMc did very well, continuing the streak of Atlanta bloggers who mop up the crew's donkedness (my own donkedness included, lol).
I lost a couple buy-ins and then got carried away on the last hand, an O8 hand in which I made a straight with the top and bottom end, but lost to Ben having the nut straight with 9T. Long term, middle cards in O8 just aren't very good.
So I was down 3-1/2 buy-ins for the evening (UNLV 0-1) but my home record is still pretty good (12-7, up 15-1/2 buy-ins).
