I prevailed over Rhinestone in a grueling match that saw us both with a chance for the knockout punch.I'm working on a detailed recap now...

Nice job Chris, we needed the win. I got home from work and logged on just in time to see that the match ended a minute ago.

Winning team: CC RidersWinning player: acesfull3333Losing team: BroccoliLosing player: RneStnCowboy Start Time : 6:49pm CSTEnd Time : 7:30pm CSTMatch duration : 132 hands - 41 minutesA marathon battle that went back and forth with each of us having a chance at the knockout blow.We started off slow, trading small jabs as we tried to get a read on each other.After the first 20 hands or so, Rhinestone slowly started to pull away. $50 here... $60 there...First big hand came when I had A8o, hit an 8 on the flop, and felt it was good, but I didn't bet it on the turn (not sure why now), and let Rhinestone hit a 9 on the river, to give him a straight for a $400 pot.acesfull3333 ($1,180 in chips)RneStnCowboy ($1,820 in chips)I fought back to about $1300, then lost another big pot of $600 (don't remember details) that took me down to $960.Cards went cold on me, and Rhinestone was picking off my bluffs for a bit, and I was dwindled down to $495.I got an A3o and on an AKJ flop, I shoved it in. Rhinestone had KQ and nearly beat me into the pot. My A's held up, and I was back in the game.acesfull3333 ($1,020 in chips)RneStnCowboy ($1,980 in chips)The cards started to fall my way for a while. I was either catching good cards, hitting the flop, or running successful bluffs.One big hand was when I limped with 34o, and a beautiful A25 flop came down. Another A on the river came, and Rhinestone held A3o, which netted me a $780 pot and put me in the lead.acesfull3333 ($1,605 in chips)RneStnCowboy ($1,395 in chips)I continued to run well and had about a 3 to 1 chip lead for a little bit.Rhinestone started pushing in and putting pressure on me though, and I never had anything good enough to call him with.With Rhinestone at $895, he pushed in and I called with AT clubs. Rhinestone had AQo and the A on the flop was no help for me.I found myself back in the hole.acesfull3333 ($1,210 in chips)RneStnCowboy ($1,790 in chips)I was able to claw back to even again... and we started from scratch...Rhinestone started to catch some hands now (and make plays on me, I'm sure) and he got $500 lead on me.Then I caught a couple of hands.. including trip A's that I wasn't able to trap Rhinestone with... and regained the lead...Final handacesfull3333 ($2,310 in chips)RneStnCowboy ($690 in chips)Rhinestone pushed in with K4o... and I was lucky enough to find KQs in my hand...A Q on the flop, and no help for Rhinestone, and that was it.Overall, it was a great match! An up and down roller-coaster ride for sure!!!
