Can't do anything in the Bodonkey

I was cashing like mad in the Bodonkey 2 months ago now I can't even get to a final table. It doesn't help to try to rebuild your stack by running into GCox's pocket aces :-( "Set up like a muthafucka"-Idon'trememberwhoIquotedthisfrom
"Set up like a wild turkey in New England"-PokahDave (don't expect to understand unless you were sitting at the Bodonkey table with me last night).
I'm also having a trouble with the 'Hilton Sisters' lately...bitches! Can't win with 'em...can't win against 'em!

Cat Puke Tilt II



NO that is not my cat...and no those are not my sneakers. I was Bodonkeying my way to getting into the leader board last night when the cat runs upstairs after eating. He proceeds to puke on the floor right in front of me....this happened before during the BBT1. It put me on tilt. I couldn't clean it up because I was playing in the Bodonkey. I had just chipped-up to a decent stack too. I stated earlier that "either 23Skidoo or NewinNov will knock me out" as they have done in most of the new Bodonkey series. Before the new leader board was made I was making lots of Bodog tourney money and making final tables without a problem. So I get Qx-Qx in early position (previously the cat puke incident happened and I had 23skidoo laughing his ass off so he says) I raise to a hefty sum. he re-raises and I feign weakness (although Q's have become somewhat of a can't win with can't win against hand for me) and I announced "good night all" and I pushed. ski calls with 'presto'....5 on the flop....DONE. At the very least I was entertaining!
