I.......Wookie *

I won a Mookie=I Wookie=the end of civilization as we know it.

Usually when I win a tournament in a series like the Mookie it ends because that is what I do. I killed off the 'Wheatie' back in the day on PokerStars. I won and a month later it basically ended. I won the M.A.T.H. a couple of years back and it abruptly ended a month later. Will this be the end of our beloved 'Mookie'? I guess we'll find out in a month. It is the first time I won a Mookie...after coming 2nd ten million times. What did it take 4 years and a crazy situation on top of that....AAAARRRGH!!!! This "win" is not without an asterisk though. Julius_Goat....who was owning me heads up suddenly got disconnected. We traded leads for what seems like forever.  It was past 1:00 AM and being on the East coast...I needed to get to sleep.  I'll asterisk this inherited Mookie win.............but I'll take it! Jeezuz...there wasn't even 20 players...I can't believe that someone could win one of those 80+ Player Mookie's. Maybe I should call it the 'Mistookie'.  I sucked out a bunch of times at the final table. I had pocket 3's and flopped a set...so I figure I am good. Not so...other dude flops a set of 8's and I was dead.....that is until the turn bring another 3...D.Q.B! The heads up battle with Julius_Goat was excruciatingly long....maybe even 40 minutes. I found out today his router needed to be rebooted. I being the nice guy I am....and feeling guilty transferred his Mookie buy-in. It's the least I could do. Lightning36 also Roach'd his way to another money finish in 3rd. That in itself was an accomplishment. I equate playing the Mookie with taking a cheese grater to your junk. Then pouring alcohol over your grated junk and screaming in pain for weeks...AM I WRONG?

Congrats on getting the monkey off your back. Looks like we need to find out who else has been waiting for a Mookie win ...

Doesn't count.

You and Goat should play H/U for rollz.
