Blogger? Join the Blogger Poker Tour today! Season 2 sends two bloggers to the Aussie Millions... BPT - only at Poker.com!

3.45pm EDT - 15 minutes from start time, and it appears as if the door has again been left wide open, as I scroll down and see the "waste of life" among the 71 or so entries, compared to last week's 75. Needless to say, this person only comes around holding her hand out, cutting in line when peeps are handing out freebies --- never a thank you, a show of appreciation, and guaranteed she'll not make even 1 blog post.

Additionally, the heavy hitters are also present... OhioMike, Egon, Haley, John, Skinski, Student. This is quite a roll, if you ask me. Our host, DawgRoyal, is also present. It should be noted that BPT Season 1 standout and WSOP bracelet winner Dutch Boyd is absent again.

Additional beerguy note: it took someone like me to replace Dutch as host last season --- just sayin' end beerguy note.

3.55pm EDT - Seated. starting to my left: tomonbass, purechaos, luckylulo, Bardiya, Bobbyolsen, stormswift, hacksaw2000, Evil666 (to my immediate right).

4.00.45pm EDT - OhioMike goes out in style...

4.05pm - peacefulpaul follows suit. Student/Joey/DamRiver has nice seat with Dawg to his left.

4.13pm - Blinds 10/20 1810 chips, 88 SB. 4 handed as mid position raises, danger flop, nothing I'm wanting to yet get involved with. Sitting with 1760 chips and 63rd of 70.

4.17 - I wonder if "the student" reads my blog as it's updating... Re-reraise in position, bro! you'll see what I mean and probably know what I mean if you're reading this right now - said another way, I think your weak king was good.

4.20 - celebrating the twice daily national holiday...

4.25 - just notice we have a tenth player, vmavrou. Not sure how long they've been there... guess the "holiday" has me lagging...

4.27 - Binds 15/30 - I need to take my own advice and begin playing aggressive in position.

4.30 - Blinds 25/50 - personal note... why don't peeps text me when I'm not doing anything? First tourney I get into and my phone whistles like... well like... haha, it just won't let up.

4.30 - asangenito exits in the 70 spot.

4.32 - 25/50 - kanyezee goes out in the 69.

4.35 - rough chip count top ten :

1. mick5434 5633
2. mada1970 5135

8. evil66 2900
9. brodoughno 2787
10. elc3105 2610

me: 55th - 1590

4.37 - Osssss and BenPlayin8 go out... waste of life is nearly dead in the water.

4.40 - blinds 50/100 - considering contacting live support regarding the lack of live cards I am receiving. As I post and ponder that, Bardiya mows down vmavrou with AQ to A10. At a similar time, Meerkat and wastoid are also eliminated.

4.45 - blinds 50/100 - I could have sworn I saw Haley in the tourney. Can't find her name anywhere now.

4.47 - blinds 50/100 - no more limping preflop, seriously...

4.48 - blinds 50/100 - Joey with KK v AQ's freeroll26 on his table when queen hits the flop and freeroll moves over top. KK holds, student chips.

4.49 - allin preflop from tomonbass. Storm swiftly calls with AQ, which beats out bass' 6-6.

4.50 - skinski joins to my left and MTLdon arrive across the table.

4.50 - RobinBos, tomonbas, astinaguy, cerberi all eliminated. 59 remain.

4.52 - evil666 eliminated... quick email response, "yes, I have to mention everyone on my table and all who are eliminated, as it coincides with my plan to link everyone."

4.55 -Blinds 75/150 - freeroll26 ousted. I "accidentally" hit allin on SB-BB vs Skinski.

4.57 - ReplicantPoker, event 1 winner, is eliminated.

4.59 - Chaos drops luckylulo with Q9s v JJ - allin preflop board comes Q-10-10-8-8.

5.00 *break* chip count

1. mick5434 7528
2. debbiedragon 6145

me: 47th with 965, 55 remain

5.05 - play resumes, blinds 100/200.

5.05 - Egonolson is gone, as is marckster1, and lightning36. 52 remain.

5.07 - irongirl joins the casualty list. As does NeoBahamut and bergeroo. Damatrix joins to my right, the host three to my left.

5.12 - the host doubles up via purechaos JJ v AJs. My hopes of ousting the host have been delayed pending a double through or two for myself.

5.13 - ATheGuruK leaves in 49th place. Fardiya leaves via the reverse domination KQ v purechaos' KJ (two pr).

5.15 - blinds 150/300 - cashline joins elimination line. Ajo utg allin Dawg reraises with AK, KK hits the board and puts me out. Host emilinates me in 45th place. I'm not sure, but I believe that was the exact way I was ousted for event 1, though in much more favorable a position.

5.16 - also eliminated were JCL514, before me, Zakinvegas right after.

5.18 - MTLdon calls Royal's allin with KK. KK holds over the host's JJ and the host is railed.

5.19 - ZowieZ also hits the rail as does mortguins, Harlequeen, and JBaldwin. We should be down to four tables.

5.20 - DaMatrix eliminated. Several players crippled. I think we hit three tables before blinds increase in four minutes or so. No sooner do I write this than Brunsie and stuarthomegame is eliminated followed by stormswift via purechaos.

5.23 - Quackpot with pocket nines eliminated caroon with 7-5 dead in the water on the BB. Rahaboss and Goliath2180 go out before and after. As predicted 3 tables before the next blind level.

5.25 - blinds 200/400 actyper gone. Purechaos torturing his table raise, reraise, raise raise raise... knocks Hacksaw from the tourney with AA vs. the saw's AQ. "oops". Cazwil goes out in 28th right before.

5.27 rough chip count:

1. purechaos 22.7K
2. Porkrind333 18.3K
3. mick5434 10.9K

7. debbiedragon 6395
8. Mada1970 6140
9. elc3105 5770
10. DamRiver 5370

5.28 - skinski and isinm2006 out. Chaos causing raising hell by continuing to raise it up preflop from position whenever he chooses.

5.30 abstratto out. Kipper01 out. iyatoni doubled up via chaos on the BB.

5.33 Speaking of toni, he recovers from a reverse domination of her AQ v. Don's AJ spiking a jack on the river, only to drive the nail in don't coffin a few hands later. Chaos makes a "but it was suited" play on BobbyOlsen taking him out with 2-7s v QQ, dropping the tourney down to two tables.

Brodoughno *say that fast three times, sits with 10K. Then we have natsdad at 17.9K, iyatoni at 16.57K and finally DamRiver/Joey/Student sits to the right of the chipleader with 7605.

In addition to BPT Leaderboard points, which get the multiplier for final tabling, top prize for this event is $125 of the $500 prize pool. Can't beat that, right?
