Dynamite Game

I few weeks ago I wrote a post bemoaning cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 demise of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 NYC club scene. FTrain called me chicken little and seems to have been right as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 scene seems to be slowly reawakening in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 aftermath of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 FührerMayor's reelection.

At any rate I was genuinely concerned that I was not going to have a decent live game closer than a 2 hour drive down cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Garden State Parkway. The low stakes home game I used to play in that had run over from law school typically featured 3-5-7 over hold'em and was not conducive to improving one's game. More to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 point, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 host recently relocated to California. So I began putting out feelers for a new game with buyins at or around cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 baby NL level spread in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 clubs.

FTrain and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bloggers in New York that I know didn't seem know of such a game and hosting one is impractical for me since no one wants to make cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 trek under cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Hudson (from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 average New Yorker, you'd think New Jersey was across cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Continental Divide). So I was quite happy to receive a comment to my post that with a little more effort yielded an invite to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 legendary Kid Dynamite's home game.

Who cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fuck is Kid Dynamite you ask?

(Well, at least that's what I asked.)

I think he can tell you about himself better than I can.

So I really had no idea exactly what I was getting into when he e-mailed me a West Village address. I told cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Korean ATM and asked him if he were interested in checking out cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 game in his downtime from hitting 4700 hours at BigFirm--he painted an image of me locked in a closet with a choker in my mouth (Who's Zed? Zed's dead baby Zed's dead). I can't say I was quite that worried, but I did quickly doff my Red Sox hat at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 door in case I was about to make a first impression on some Yankee nut.

No fears as he answered in a Red Sox cap and a Pats sweatshirt (I should have reread his blog on that account). Moreover, I knew him from Playstation days. Right up to Black Thursday, we probably played 20 or 30 hours togecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r, including one hand that he kept mentioning to me everytime we met back cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n where he had called my preflop bet, flopped a straight flush, bet out and saw me fold (I think I had suited connectors).

Good news: less concern about waking up with my hands tied behind cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 back.

Bad news: this didn't look like it was going to be a fish pond.

Addtional good news: KD has a very nice pad, proper poker tables, and "Kid Dynamite" custom made chips complete with KK on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 face (Kid Dynamite doesn't need rockets).

Game was to be 1-2PLHE 200 max buyin, but we only had 3 players to start, KD, Brett and myself so we started a warm up 1-2PL freeze out with 25 chips. That was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 highlight of my session as I got very good 3-handed cards and managed to book a whopping 8 profit when Alex, our fourth player, arrived and we just converted our freeze out chips in front of us to regular chips.

Most memorable hand that I wasn't involved in: KD rereraises all-in over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 top Greg/Gary (sorry names are foggy) for a pot of over 300. KD flips over AQ clubs and Greg/Gary King Kong. Flop is Q77. Turn is 7. River is 7. Ouch. Counterfeited by quads. That's got to hurt.

Session went from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re, with JJ being cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best preflop cards I got for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 afternoon (took down small pot preflop). I did get to drop a fake hammer (suited) on Brett for a nice pot taken down on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 turn, but generally met with little success as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table wised up to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fact that I was pushing with some dubious hands. Memorable hand of this vein:

Dealt J8 spades UTG, I made cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 standard opening (pot for 7) and got both blinds as callers (big blind was Greg/Gary). Flop was two spades with a king queen. Trying cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 old semi-bluff, I led out with 20. Lost cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 small blind but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 big blind wasn't going anywhere--so much for Plan A. Plan B part 1 worked as he checked cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 blank turn to me, giving me cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 free card I wanted but part 2 failed as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 river was an offsuit ace. I figured I'd try Plan C with a river "value bet" bluff of 30, figuring he's got to fold unless he has an ace cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re (can't put him on set or two pair here with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 free cards he'd been giving me). Figured wrong, as after a long swim in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 think tank he illustrated cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 definition of no respect: preflop UTG raise and continuation bet, AKQ board and called down with TT.

It's not always bad when cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table comes to believe you never have cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 goods, but for this to help, you do need to starting getting some cards, and Mrs. SoxLover and waiting mocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r called me back to Jersey before this could happen. I'll just have to hope cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y'll remember my fishy play next time (well, reading this will probably help).

It was a fun time and a great place to spread a game, if not cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 highest EV table. Thanks KD, I hope to be back again.
