Congrats to the Mad Doctor...

Inferno the Mad Doctor from Kingston Ontario won the Lord Admiral 2005 Club Championship.

Brent managed to make some recordings on his Iriver and I had hoped to have them up Friday night but it never worked out. I should have them up next week for our second inter-week "Golden Nugget".

Thanks to Mark for a well-run tournament.

How about this micro-limit hand from CnR.

*** SUMMARY ***

Total pot $35.60 | Rake $1.85

You may be wondering why I folded. Was I scared of a higher flush? Of course not - the problem was my little java button window went black and I had no event buttons to press - the disappeared!! I was suddenly watching my time run out frantically trying to find the call!!

You can only buy in for $20 with this table and I had built the stack to almost $40. There was $35 in the pot and I only needed another $10 to call and the interface craps out!! I was so angry I left the table to prevent my inevitable tilting.

I also sent a message to CnR to notify them of the bug. I am not asking for money back (it really isn't much) but what if that was serious coin?

I'll let you all know what they say.
