Sirfwalgman is the New KORD

It pains me in ways you can only imagine but not truly empathize with. Sirfwalgman took down the KORD last night in a way that only a true luckbox can do it. His massacre of the field was an endless attack of aggressive Razz with timely cards to run over the helpless rivals for this cherished crown.

In 2nd place was valgon, the past champion, who made a nice come back after having a short stack on the bubble. Taking the last paying spot was Numbono who was beat horrifically by waffles after moving into a sold 2nd place with his aggressive play. Evy was the bubble girl as she fought hard to maintain position but ran into a run of bad cards at the wrong time.

Thanks go to IT for firing up IT radio with special thanks going to buddydank for allowing us to have the show. It was fun to sit with IT and Zeem and discuss the hands as they played out. We will be trying this again hopefully for the next KORD so stay tuned for more information.

I'll have some screen shots either later today or this weekend and a breakdown of the top 10 finishers.

I didn't get very deep as I suffered from card death in combination with over confidence. As we moved later in the tournament I had a short stack and saw waffles complete a bet. bertgwen raised and I was looking at a fairly strong hand considering my short stack. Below is the hand and my thought process.

I have a good short stack hand in that I have three cards under an 8 and have a chance to triple up. I don't always like making this move but I need to get lucky and what better time then with two other players in the hand. I figure I am behind a little but I also know that we are killing a lot of each others outs. Time to triple up or go home.

I have a better draw then bertgwen with me needing a 7, 4, 3 or 2 to gain control. I need waffles to brick.

I come up short.

I think taking a chance here with the short stack is well worth the risk vs. the reward. I move up to 2K chips if I win.

Thanks for playing everyone and we will see you next month for the KORD.
