re: Poker & Anybody ever fall asleep during a tourney?
I used to play the $20 midnight freezeout on absolute every night at midnight and the one night when it was on the bubble I fell asleep. I woke up to see the message on my screen "You have finished tournament 492876942186 in 17th place" I think I minimum cashed, but I laughed and turned my computer off and went back to sleep.
On a side note, this one time I was playing a 5/10 NL game on bodog. I was playing for about an hour my stack was up to about 1500 (bought in with 1000) and I had JJ. (I remember this hand like it was yesterday, because it was so disturbing) I raised it up to a standard $50. I got 2 callers. Flop was 3 8 J rainbow. It goes check check and I bet out $80, I got one caller. Turn J gives me quads and the first to act checks and I check. River is a 9 and first to act checks, I bet $250 the other player raises ALLIN for $1200!!!!!!!!!! I literally stand up and scream as I hit the call button.....nothing happens?!?!?! I hit it again........nothing!!!!!!!! Then I get a message saying I have been disconnected! I frantically try to reconnect and my efforts don't matter, I don't reconnect in time. I do win the pot because of allin protection, but the pot was like $810 when it would have been like $3000. I am throwing a fit and I find out the reason why I was disconnected was because my sister accidentally turned the internet router off in the main computer room and shut the internet in our house down at the same exact time I tried to call the allin! I insisted she write me a check for $1000 but she refused. I was so pissed, but obviously I got over it.
