KK that took Piratelawyer out.
QQ that ran into Columbo's KK.
And AK that lost to HeffMike's 88 at Final Table.
Most of my chips were gathered with less than stellar hands including the 32o that defeated Chippy when I made priced in call near bubble. 8th will have to do.
My efforts in $4k saw me get near money but not cash. $4k is a minefield but tonight a couple of beats were spectacular:

My starting table was very good for my style of PLO as pretty much the only pre-flop raises were by AA hands. Starting table was pretty bad for me as I could not hit a flop, (only set I hit at 1st table was bottom set on 679 flop with 2 hearts). Other aspect of the starting table was 2 of the AA raisers always went to showdown with unimproved AA and there was a Scandi at table willing to bet hard with top pair and a draw and he would call river bets with just top pair (and sadly win).
4th level I got moved to a new table where Eskimo Clark had amassed a huge chip stack, 5k was starting stack, I was sadly around 3k and Eskimo had ~30k. He moves rather well for someone who had stroke at Razz final table last summer but does still have some of the frozen features of a stroke victim. I managed to double up once at new table flopping bottom set and nut flush draw against top pair + gut but went out when UTG raised 7664 (1s) into my AKKJ (same suit), I reraised and we got all in pre but he turned a 6 after a nice 992 flop.
I had a few nice craps rolls but I kept running into Recess' proteges shooting before and after me. 2nd Sickest sequence was 3 roll shooter, (craps, point, out), 2 (point, out) shooters, then I had a 17 roll turn where I hit 4 points and collected the fire bet, and was folled by another 2 roll shooter. Sickest sequence was a dude walked up to the table and asked for a $10k marker which was gone in ~7 minutes.

Mookie did not go that well, built up to a Top 10 Stack then raised AK and had to call a priced in reraise only to be against AA. I threw away some chips in EP with 99 when I got bluffed off by an unimproved AK. Playing PLO at same time as NLHE makes me more willing to fold medium-strong hands. But also tends to get me chasing draws.
My biggest score of day was this discovery. This house is 3 blocks from my old house and was built the same year with the same floor plan. I sold last May for a nice chunk more than that asking price.
At bubble in PLO DS I was chipleader with 37k, anyeights was 2nd with 21k and NewarkNJGary was 3rd with 17k. I channelled Lucko and raised a lot. By the time the bubble burst 2nd had 20k and 3rd and 4th were around 9k because if 2nd stack did not raise I felt I should. Sometime after bubble burst 2nd stack disconnected and I failed to notice, I kept pounding on the 2 shorties and 2nd stack so when I took out 4th, blinds were 500/1000 and 3rd had maybe 4k chips and 2nd was 10k. NewarkNJGary was a little mad at me because I did not let him finish 2nd. Ethically it seems like collusion to allow that but sadly I did not make decision dure to ethical considerations rather I failed to notice anyeights was disconnected rather than very weak/tight. Hewas 2nd biggest stack and finished 2nd.
I will have to see if I can carry success over to Riverchasers.

In Skillz buckhoya raised in EP, I called with some crap little connectors. Flop was 944 and I decided 99 was too small a pp to raise in EP. Either Buck is really good at PLO raising AT99 (1s) for deception or really bad. In either case I made bad read and thought trip 4s were good against EP raiser and got crippled.
In $4k I went out 40th , JT98 1s lost to AAt5 1s, I suspected I was up against AA but caught an AJ9 flop with my flush draw, know if up against AA and since the Ace on flop was my suit opponent had to also have Kc or Qc and other club for flush draw not to be good I was looking at 45% I pushed. I caught flush but board paired. Athletec (#1 in POY went out 1 spot below me).
I regrouped from my bad play in blogger events and plyed a few SNGs. I cashed 2/2 in $75 FTOPS #10 sats and then played a $33 PLO turbo.
I went out 9th but liked my decision making.

CracknKK crippled me in Skillz when my 4 to flush after 4 added 4 to low + gutshot after 5th and finished with a fabulous bad 8 low no pair that lost to 44 and slightly better low that she had bet every street.
Tom Jefferson finished me off when my hidden KK J up lost to his hidden TT J up. Me being short made me too tempting as a bounty for him to fold after he had completed and I raised.
Bodog ended badly for me at the halfway point when yestbays TT rivered my AA all in pre. I had made a loose call earlier with K8s against evil wonka, wish I knew what it was but something about cadence of bet screamed weakness so I called and flopped K but turn and river QQ left me sitting with a short stack.
Tom went on to seize 2nd due to clearly either not understanding the TOC prize structure or having zero confidence in his NLHE game in making a deal with Hoy. Congrats on seat Hoy.

$2.5k Guarantee PLO I bubbled FT with KKJ9 ds on button running into AAK in BB, sadly A and K on flop ended it for me.
I went out of DD B when KK lost to QQ, I flopped a King but was four flushed.
Can someone explain why QQ is such a bad holding in NLHE but every time someone commits half their stack pre with AQQ against my AA xx ds they suck out a Queen?

I had A4577 (4 diamonds), raiser had A26TK and was determined to represent split Aces I guess. I bricked twice in both directions. Desperate raiser hit a T and made Final Table.
I used to think Donkette was most aptly named blogger but she has improved and I have a new leader: FishyMcDonK
FishyMcDonK showed [Th 8h Ah Js]
EP he limped this fine hand from UTG +1, Miami Don raised and holding Ac2c7h7d I decided to reraise to isolate Don who I had outchipped.
I overlooked the cutting edge O8 hand selection theory and the power of A8 for low, AJ for hi and power of 4 cards within span of 7 for hitting straight. Obviously putting in 1/4 of stack pre with obviously 2:1 true odds and Don and I providing additional 2:1 implied odds due to being short is correct move for a Fishy McDonK. Imagine my surprise when not 20 mins later this donktard was out.
Congrats to loretta8 for the final suckout of "skillz".

I did not follow this Saturday Night guide , (Drizz I am looking at you) because I had my live tourney in Morgan Hill. As craptastic as blogger events can be nothing compares to the minefield of playing a rebuy tournament in California where any two face and any 2 suited are gold. One hand I raised JJ pre only to see a nasty AQ6 (two diamond flop), I dumped hand when two callers went to felt with QT and 7d4d. Unfortunately went out 2nd level post rebuy when KK lost to QQ and then big stack tried to steal blinds with 7c6c and I was short enough in blinds to take stand with AJ. getting 3:1 button had to call jam and was rewarded with 76 small flop.
I got home in time to see the Full Tilt's servers had recovered and that I had gotten an email telling me of being awarded $37.26 in the cancelled $2.5k PLO KO. Since I was 42 of 46 remaining and 18 paid I can accept this payout but a review of my past PLO tourneys would indicate I was "in position" for a deep run.
At 11:46 pacific $20k guarantee Turbo Hundred had 76 players registered thinking "huge overlay" due to server problems I signed up. Apparently 193 other people thought the same thing and 269 of us began play. I doubled up early when a K8 unimproved jammed turn into my top set of Js and managed to stay in Top 25 rest of tournament until with 35 left I jammed KK into AA. I think I have managed to run KK into AA 11 times in the last week and despite huge quantity of poker I play I don't play enough to justify 11 occurrences.
MSNBC was airing Mistaken Identity as I busted out of Hundo so I was trapped watching late into night. Until they showed the picture of Whitney with her face swollen and eyes closed 10 days after accident I was like "how did they not know". But with all the swelling she did not look predominantly like either healthy girl.
Sunday I awoke at crack of 1, I was not psyched for the Sunday donkey play but did decide to wade into the early doubles and $2.5k PLO. PLO was a quick FCD beat my set exit but despite me making a horrendously donkey call early in early double B, I came back from 340 chips for a double cash.
This inspired me to try the original Daily Double. DD A saw a quick exit but in B I got some chips early and was a top 20 stack most of tourney. With 36 left I was 4th in chips (but 4th at my table), after a couple of exits I was the one moved and found myself as a 150k stack when next at table was 50k. Having watched Lucko and LJ bully tables in past I was giving it a try with smaller raises to steal the blinds but one time I got lazy raising with 88 and clicked bet pot, player after me jammed and I was thinking fawk but was getting 2:1 on my money to call. Since I am math based I made call hoping for a race but instead saw KK.
I play so good. I also manged to lose a decent size pot with 88 to an UTG raiser on a Q 6 4 flop when raiser showed QT. During 4th or 5th break LJ and I had a quick discussion on bet sizing and I of course listened because she seems to understand how to run deep better than most and bid her a good night. Coming out of break I raised the 1st 4 hands, AQ (Q hi flop), AK (no action), 99 QT9 flop all spades (eww but took down 3 way flop with pot bet) and TT. SB (rookiejim) apparently had enough of my raising and jammed with A8o and was rewarded with river Ace.
After next break and many eliminated players later rookiejim minraised UTG and I had 88 in BB. Rookiejim had shown a tendency not to lay down an Ace pre so I jammed and this time he had AA to take me out.
MATH is tonight

I remembered that as a response to BWOP's April Fools post there was a comment:
Rumour is that white is the new black, and straight is the new gay. I don't know where these rumours start. Certainly not here.
I suddenly was thinking OMG is that idiot waffles correct? Have I possibly offended Astin with my later response:
I guess waffles calling me fag does not override my agreeing with the late great Sam Kinison on "How can a man look at another man's hairy ass and find love? OWWW OWWW"
It is fine for others to be gay, and congratulations Astin for coming out of closet in comments to waffles and accepting your lesbian nature. I am sure waffles is willing to provide a forum for gay and lesbian announcements and it will not impact way I treat any of you (other than occaisonal or additional requests for girl on girl porn from some).
Yesterday in my post I was still a little tilty as I had gotten off to a good start in blogger cash, then made a couple of calls when I knew I was beat, a couple of shoves when I knew I was beat and quoted someone calling fuel a "cocksucker"
This was wrong.
Fuel's decision on sucking cock has no impact on his poker play. And I apologize to anyone that I may have offended. Calling fuel a "fa g", "homo" or "mallard fucker" in past was also wrong.
Fish, lucksack donkey, moron, idiot, loser, donator, dumbass, ATM, fishcakes or fucktard would have been better choices and I will strive to always refer to Fuel in the future using proper poker based insults.
I apologise in advance to the kinder gentler blogoshere members for future fuel inspired outbursts.
Went out of Mookie at midway point, 1st KQs jammed my BB and I felt priced in with AA. Rivered flush left me short before my table move.
Blinds 100/200 I have 420 behind when Al raises hammer from SB, I have mellowed over time but when BB is priced in to call with ATC is a hammer raise a good idea?
This time it was because although my 2 cards were 8+ a 7 hit river and I was done.
Somehow I won Dookie, I was shorty a long time but it is my normal path to PLO victory.
Played blogger cash for a little while but was tilty, one time I flopped a set it was against shorty flopped straight.
This exchange happened after fuel button raised a hammer and ended up cracking KK.
Bayne: fuel ran away
Bayne: so now I will not be trying to lay bad beat
Anonymous: and i can quit playing. no money is sweeter than his.
On posisitve side:
Donkette: are we half in the cash game????
Donkette: see we are ahead
Bayne: I topped off
Donkette: damn we are way ahead now
So on positive half my losses are covered.
Eventually my tilt spiral led me here:

sirfwalgman: i will defeat you
sirfwalgman: in both rankings
Bayne: side bet on the cash?
Bayne: all I hear is crickets
sirfwalgman: when is BBT3 over?
sirfwalgman: like 10 weeks?
sirfwalgman: 50 bucks says I P@WN you in both stats
Bayne: I win if I win either?
Bayne: it is bet
sirfwalgman: your doomed
He had to end it with "your" instead of "you're".
Seems like easy money, I only have to win one of 2 categories, I am currently 71.5 behind in points but $692.78 ahead in cash.
Waffles tilt is so easy to exploit, is it wrong that I have used altruisitic Hoy Synopsis to profit in this manner?
IcrushBloggers (he is anonymous so no need to change name) eliminated me from Bodonkey last night. I jammed from cutoff for ~1310 (150/300 blinds) he called from BB with 98o and rivered a straight. Since he was getting 2:1 on money and I don't remember what % of his stack was involved in call I am left with thought nice call.
There was going to be screen shot of PTO here but yet again you could not expand pic. Why does this not work for me?
Stats for year:
8/16 2000 hands +$900
3/6 1200 hands -$536
2/4 700 hands -$300
I pulled up my PokerTracker stats for the year playing 8/16, 3/6 and 2/4 O8. It might be I am more familar with the 8/16 pool of players to explain why the profitable level is 8/16 but I believe the unpredictability of bad players disrupts my O8 play.
This would not bode well for skills game:
I had AA cracked by such stellar hands as AKT7 and K332. It was made worse in that the K332 hand saw an 24J flop which looked real good to my AA56 ds and that is a terrible flop for the K332 until the K turn and Q river bails it out.
My frustration led me to limp from EP with 2467.
I was rewarded with an excellent flop for my POS shit so I bet flop after it was checked to me and IronGirl was the only caller. The Jd was not card on turn I was looking for but at least it gave me flush draw so after an IG checked I bet again. I hated the river but knew that only way to win was bet, IG folded and miracle of miracles I had seen a blogger fold in Skillz O8.
Most frustrating hand of night was one where blogger (henceforth negEVHi) limped, I raised my AA58 ds, player to my right (henceforth negEVlo) called it folded around to negEVHi and he called.
Flop was 4s6s6x.
I bet since I had nut flush draw.
Since I know a hand with 3 wheel cards and a 6 will see a lot of flops with only 3 involved the possibility of trip 6s is non zero nor is a flopped boat. Since I am not drawing to nut low I prudently fold.
negEVlo raises capping.
I believe turn also saw a capped betting round (sdly no hand history but I believe it was a 9)
River 5s saw a check from negEVHi a bet from negEVlo and call from negEVHi.
Cards come up and I am stunned to see neither of these 2 has a 6.
Neither of these 2 has 44.
Neither of these 2 has a flush draw.
Neither of these 2 has a wrap.
They capped the flop because negEVlo had A23, negEVHi had KK and 3 bet flop with 2 pair.
Hopefully negEVHi learned something about what a POS hand KKxx is in O8
Having folded best hand on flop and rivered flush against these 2 put me on such HoyTilt that I chased down a boat against Rakefeeder. In my defense I think his checkraising me on the flop priced me in, especially since I was sure he would lead out on paired board on turn or river.
