I eliminated Jordan with an A-rag to bust money bubble:

Full Tilt Poker Game #7131712831: Mondays at the Hoy (53527498), Table 1 - 40/80 - No Limit Hold'em - 0:35:30 ET - 2008/07/08

The button is in seat #2
*** HOLE CARDS ***

lucyfred folds

at this point I am under no illusion I am ahead but at 3:1 I have committed self

HighOnPoker shows [Jc Jh]
bayne_s shows [As Ts]
*** FLOP *** [8h 5d 3s]
*** TURN *** [8h 5d 3s] [Tc]
*** RIVER *** [8h 5d 3s Tc] [Ah]
HighOnPoker shows a pair of Jacks
bayne_s shows two pair, Aces and Tens
bayne_s wins the pot (4,060) with two pair, Aces and Tens
HighOnPoker stands up
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 4,060 Rake 0
Board: [8h 5d 3s Tc Ah]
Seat 2: HighOnPoker (button) showed [Jc Jh] and lost with a pair of Jacks
Seat 4: bayne_s (small blind) showed [As Ts] and won (4,060) with two pair, Aces and Tens
Seat 5: VinNay (big blind) folded before the Flop
Seat 6: lucyfred didn't bet (folded)

Vinnay went out soon after when he flopped top pair against my overpair, after a little back and forth lucyfred lost a flip for 2nd.

I extended a tourney streak in Stars $50k losing with AA to KK. 3 straight days I have exited with AA against KK in an MTT. Today was different in that I only got 1/3 of my stack in pre-flop rather than all in pre-flop.

Skillz is HOSE 6:30 (Pacific) on FullTilt. Wife has two follow up doctor's appointments tomorrow so I may or may not join in on the fun. Expectation is that root cause of seizure will remain a mystery and that each passing day makes it less likely another seizure will occur.
