More KRAZY DUST stories..
You guys on ITH have no IDEA how the dust stories have uplifted my soul.
I have been in a funk…the grandkids are moving…and the stories about the POWER of the DUST just make me SMILE!!
THANK YOU !! THANK YOU !
It just makes me PROUD to know that I have touched your lives in a positive way.I have come to a “lightbulb” moment…the DUST is better when its SHARED.. and not used selfishly.
So on to some stories and these are really good…GREAT!!
We met a few years ago online through a promotional tourney sponsered by True Poker and Nana. In fact that was the one and only time I met Matthew Hilger. He was there promoting his first book.
This story is absolutely true:
As Tanya recalls:
I was down to 1 $100 chip with 34 players left, proceeded to double up about 6 times in a ROW, then ended up taking it all down for first place.
Got a trophy and everything.
Mxrider has also been touched by the dust and in his own words:
I had been playing this silly game for about 3 years and had yet to take home an mtt first place finish. That is until this wonderful stuff called krazydust came upon me. I found myself in a $10 MTT on Party that had roughly 350 people in it and coming down to the final 3 tables I found myself in the chip lead. While on IRC, I got this strange overwhelming feeling come over me and I soon realized I had been sprinkled by krazydust. About an hour later, I had my first MTT win and $879 to show for a $10 investment. Acomplishment #1.
2 weeks later, I was up late doing some laundry to get my son ready for a school trip he was going on and I was on IRC chatting it up a bit and saw there was a $20 MTT on Absolute with a $4k guaranteed prize pool. 10 minutes prior to start, there were only 80 people registered so I decided to jump in. At start time, we had 197 runners which gave a small overlay. Needless to say, KT came through with the krazydust again and I took home my second first place MTT in a 2 week timeframe. I had to wash my hair 3 times to get the krazydust out.
Now, if that isn't enough, 4-5 days ago, I entered into a $4 180 man sng on stars. I had played probably 10-15 of these getting into the money 3 times but no final tables. Well KT happened to be on IRC this time and had the dust flying again. Long story short, another 1st place!
Unfortunately, 2 days ago, KT was not on IRC when I ended 2nd in a $1 rebuy on absolute and it is because I had not been dusted!
OH..so SWEET..but there are more!!
And my friend the pig dog man...( this is my pet name for him)and it is meant to be very endearing.
Pig Pen so graciously shared this story:
I was looking for a $10 MTT to play when I saw that a $1000 GP was starting at CD Poker. I figured what the heck, the $5.00 buy-in has a $300.00+ pay-out for first which, if I can bag it, will boost the ol' bankroll a bit. Since I was bounced out of a $20 MTT in 46th earlier in the day (AQ loses to A5) moving down certainly didn't seem like a bad idea.
There were 227 players when the opening bell rang and we were off. Well, I started slow, really slow. Card dead city. It was five, six, and seven gappers hand after hand. What I played didn't hit and what I had folded wouldn't have hit anything either. I had picked up a few pots along the way to help ward off the blinds but it turned out that in the time it took to lose half the field I had played only two hands to showdown. But both hands won and it was enough to keep me just short of mid-pack.
I had been lurking in IRC when KT pops in and says howdy. Now I'm no stranger to KT's KrazyDust, I've seen it at work before and boy if there was ever a time I needed a boost it was now. "KT" I hollered, "I need some dust!". "You got it!" she says.
The very next hand I'm dealt KK and double-up. Two hands later it's A-Q and another big pot. Just one hand later and it's another big pot and I'm 6th in chips! So I'm beeboppin' along and it's down to 18 players. But after a big loss I'm 16th in chips . I'm dealt KQ and figure it's time to move. One pre-flop raiser and it folds to me. I reraise. He goes all-in. I figured him for a mid pocket pair, 8s, 9s or maybe 10s. Thought I was behind but maybe I could catch a flop with my two suspected overcards. "Yo, KT! Dust please!" "You've got the power!" she says. I shove my chips in. He had a pocket pair alright, but it was AA. Ooops. I ran right into that one. Then the flop hits........I've got nothin'. I'm toast, but wait a minute! KrazyDust sneers at your AA! HA! The turn is a king..........the river? Yep, it's another K! Woot! Now that may seem like a miracle runner-runner suckout to some but don't be fooled by such nonsense! It's simply a day in the life of the power of KrazyDust! And now I'm right back in it. So I bob, I weave, I duck......and then there were four.
I made it to heads-up with the chip lead, then I lost it, then I got back to even, was ahead, then behind and so it went for 20-25 minutes. But the Dust, the Dust never faltered. It was there, waiting to unleash it's mighty power at just the right time. And so it did. The full fury of KrazyDust was released on the poor unsuspecting fellow and he never stood a chance. It was over. I won the tourney and took home a nice prize of $306.45. Which is not my first MTT win, but it's my biggest single prize to date. And it couldn't have happened without the mighty, mysterious power of KrazyDust! Woot, woot, KT! Woot!
