State of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Union

So my main man Chops over at WickedChopsPoker did a "blogfiles" interview with me yesterday - it should come out very well when he posts it on his site later today. Dying to know who's at Kid Dynamite's dream poker table? Head over to WickedChops and check out cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 interview (I'd link to it of course, but it's not up yet). WickedChops should be on your daily blog-perusing list if it's not already. Someday Chops, Dirty Dave and I will team up to write cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 great American screenplay. I hate to put up a post that will bump cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 immortal David Williams post from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 top of my blog, but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 WickedChops - Kid Dynamite Blogfiles interview will be worth it.

Pokerwise: Still trying to rebound from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 back to back poker disasters of two weeks ago, I have re-focused my game, and am playing flawless poker. I played 90 minutes of live 1-2NL on Monday night, for +$276, and 2 hours last night, for +$467. In between, I crushed Jordan's homegame tourney, but settled for second place.

Puppywise: Oscar is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 cutest fucking dog you've ever seen. He's such a stud it's absolutely incredible. Take a look:

Drinking straight from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bottle - Boone's Farms Style - only he's drinking a $40 bottle of Pinot Noir from Napa. I told you he was spoiled.

In ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r news, Mrs. Dynamite was making Matzoh Ball soup last night, from some leftover chicken I'd made cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 night before. Since we're on vacation this week, and we've been hanging out in town, we've been trying to take advantage of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 free time to cook dinner. My wife would definitely win any "Shikza Matzoh Ball Soup Making Contest."

I peer over Mrs. Dynamite's shoulder and ask: "You like making cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 matzoh balls small eh?" I try to make cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 size of your nuts," she replied instantly and honestly. Touche. Blogworthy. Lemme tell you though - when cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 matzoh balls were done, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y were effing huge baby.

I'm off to Boston for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 weekend with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Mrs. and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 puppy. We're doing an annual canoe relay race on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Charles with our families. So far I'm 3 for 3 in "years getting poison ivey on my legs" even though I still haven't seen cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fucking ivey.

I'll leave you with one more Oscar picture for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 weekend...

The American Dream

Warning: NSFW: links are not suitable for work.

So this NEEDS to be addressed... The David Williams Story.

I first read about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 David Williams Story on NeverWinPoker.com, but it seems that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 story has been circulating for years throughout Williams' old circle: cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Magic community. Basically cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 story is this: Williams needed cash, so he appeared in a porno in which he spends a significant chunk of time chomping on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poop chute of a washed up C-level porn star.

There is a blog, StarkNakedPoker, with all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 details of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 saga, including links to video clips.

Now I can't be sure this is actually David Williams - it certainly looks like him, but you can bet your hershey highway I'd use it to put DW on TILT if I ever sat with him... "Wow.. Bad beat.. that sucks ass... No offense David..." "Anyone want to order food? I'll have a tossed salad... Oops - Sorry David." The possibilities are endless.

But here's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bottom line: If it is indeed David Williams in that video - kudos to him. What's a better poker story than this:

Young aspiring poker star gets taken to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 felt, broke, and has to raise a new playing stake. Instead of playing on someone else's money for a share of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 profits, he pimps himself out in a low grade porno, eating cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ass of some Skinimax reject from 1985. Young Star takes cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 porno profits and enters a satellite for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 WSOP Main Event. Young Star wins cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 satellite, and parlays cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 entry into a 2nd place finish, $2MM + payday at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 World Series of Poker. That's better than cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Mikey McD story from Rounders. That's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 American Dream: wake up broke, eat ass, parlay payment into millions. Boo Yah.

I mean seriously, who hasn't eaten a little ass on camera to raise a buy-in when cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y were down to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 felt and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 game was still good? I can't be cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 only one... Guys? Guys???

No shame David - just pop a piece of Dentyne before you talk to me.

(Disclaimer: KD has never tossed salad on camera)

Homegame Tourney Action

I guess if you have a few bad sessions, everyone suddenly wants you in your game... Soxlover extended me an invite on behalf of Jordan, who was hosting a homegame tourney Friday night.

I went with two missions: to put Soxlover on TILT, and to try to have a good time. Soxlover foiled my plan by getting busted on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 very first hand of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tourney - nice defense douchebag. I later tilted myself by mucking cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 NUT LOW (we were playing NL Holdem) after action was complete on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 river, when it turned out my opponent had cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same hand. I eventually got heads up with Jordan, our host, and managed to get him all-in with Friday in Vegas: JJ vs his QJ. He turned a gutshot straight, and I was all-in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 next hand, again with Friday in Vegas. This time his Q-4 spiked a queen, and Jordan took down first place in his own tourney. Yeah - like that wasn't rigged. I settled for second, and along cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way managed to put a few nice suckouts on Jordan's collection of internet young guns. These guys are SnG specialists, but I looked into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir souls Hellmuth-style (minus all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 douche-bagged-ness) and neutralized cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir lethal tourney skills.

Today me and 6 friends are going on on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Deep Banana Blackout concert cruise. One of my favorite bands (a horns infused jam band) has re-united for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Green Apple Festival - a NYC Earthday special. Major drunkenness is forecast, along with thunderstorms and 45 degree temperatures: I'm offering a bounty to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first person in my crew who pukes off cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 boat.

In cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 meantime, you must all check out NeverWinPoker.com, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 home of internet pro's Dustin "NeverWin" Woolf, Todd "DanDruff" Whittles and Bryan Micon. They have a few stories on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re which need to be addressed by me in future posts, but lets just say cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y involve

a) Gavin Griffin's hammer

and

b) (allegedly) David Williams in a porno.

That should keep you busy for a little while...

until next time,

Surprise

Statcounter.com is a cool web tool that let you look at stats on your web page, such as how many unique visitors you have, how many page loads, how people got to your site, and what keyword searches your site was a result for.

I can only imagine cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 surprise on one douchebag's face when he searched for "barbershop hot lacá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r shave gentlemen" and ended up with Dirty Dave's legendary guest post about a poop gone bad at Truefitt and Hill in Vegas on Six Sigma Sunday.

I also get a lot of hits from searches like "Phil Hellmuth Douchebag," "Sean Sheikhan," and "Peyton Manning's Wife."

I was going to write a post about Oscar's throbbing boner (uh oh, now I'll show up in some more totally fucked up searches), but as Bones noted, I don't have a good picture to go along with it, so I'll hold off for now. I'll throw in a bum-sniffing pic instead.


good times.

Sinking

Yesterday's session hurt. Thinking back about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 session, I was very happy about my play in general: I took one vicious beat, missed a big draw, ran into one pretty cold deck, and was beaten by a better hand in anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r pot. The fourteen hundred dollar loss sucked, but I felt good about my play. I vowed to keep my composure, get back on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 train, and start fresh today.

Today, I ground my stack up early, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n quickly got stacked by Chris on his first hand: I raised to $10 UTG with Friday in Vegas: JJ. Chris called, as did JD and one ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r, and we saw a 6-7-8 flop with two diamonds.

I bet $50 and was called by both players. On cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 turn, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 jack of diamonds came. Aiyahh... speaking of cold decks. Chris has been playing ridiculously fast and loose lately, so I'm not planning to check-fold here. I bet $150, and he moves all-in for $180 more. Fuckin'A. I call and he has K-3 of diamonds. The board doesn't pair on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 river.

Can I get away from this hand? Perhaps. This is one I can complain about all I want, but I didn't need to lose $330 more here on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 turn. Indeed, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 jack of diamonds was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 worst card in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 deck for me on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 turn, but it's also conceivable I can give up on this pot against two opponents. The bottom line was, against cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se two opponents, in this game, I wasn't prepared to do so.

I rebought, and really focused. I played some of my best poker: managing to dodge bullets in difficult situations while fighting to stay afloat and maintain my discipline.

I raise to $15 in EP with KQ, and 5 players called me. I bet $75 into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 flop of K-T-6, and Billy R on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 button thought for 20 seconds before moving all-in. I had about $550 left, and he had me covered. Now, Billy was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 one who stacked me a while back with AA vs. my KK, making a similar overbet which I called preflop. We've talked at length about that hand, and Billy knows that I'm a thinking player. So while I'd normally have to muck this KQ without hesitation, Billy is deep inside my head: I know that he knows that I know he's done this to me before... Does he put me on AK and expect me to call here? In any case, Billy is not cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 type of guy who puts his money in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot in a situation like this drawing dead. At best I'm up against an open ender, or a flush draw. At worst I'm drawing almost dead to a set. I muck. Feel good about it KD.

I gained a lot of confidence when I beat my nemesis, Billy R, in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 following pot:

Larry raised to $15, and Billy called. I was in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 SB with JJ again, and made it $55 to go. Both players called. The flop came: 8-4-2. I checked. Larry checked. Billy bet $65, I called and Larry mucked. The turn was a nine, and I checked. Billy makes a comment about my subtle pinky finger check, and checks behind me. The river is a deuce, pairing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 board. I check again. Billy bets $140 and I call, raking cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot when he shows 3-3. I like cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way I played this hand: Billy is a very tough player, and I maximized my value here.

I was in for $1000, with about $950 in my stack, when I made cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 biggest mistake of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 past two days - and it cost me. I can make all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 excuses I want, and try justify my play, but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bottom line is, this was one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 worst calls I have made in recent memory. I can only hope this play is a lesson to someone reading this. Here's what happened:

I was in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 SB with AA. There was a straddle, and two callers, before Ivan on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 button made it $35. Now, Ivan is a big donater in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 game: he's loose and wild, and will call down big bets with marginal hands. The strategy for beating Ivan is simple: make a hand and bet it.

I raised to $85, and everyone folded to Ivan, who said "You want $50 more of my money eh? Ok." and called.

The flop was Q-6-4 rainbow. I bet $100, Ivan called. This could mean he has a queen (he may frequently raise a queen here, but will also smooth call), or any pair between 6's and Q's.

The turn is a 3, and I bet $250. Ivan says "I'm all-in," and I jump up from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table. Fuck. The dealer burn a card and goes to deal cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 turn card and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 whole table yells at him to stop - as I haven't acted yet.

Now, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 easy reasoning is "It's Ivan - he could have anything, I call," but I'm smarter than that. More importantly, I know Ivan's smarter than that. Ivan is very difficult to put on a hand, but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bottom line is, he's extremely unlikely to raise me here with A-Q, K-Q a weaker Q, or any ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r hand I can beat. I don't think he has KK, but I do think he'd play KK like this. Ivan is not stupid - he usually has a hand like two pair or a bigger made hand here. I know this - it's an easy laydown.

I look at Ivan. "I have aces." I tell him. "That's not cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hand I put you on," he responds. Muck. Muck!. Muck cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hand KD - cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 voices in my head are screaming. You cannot be winning. But it's IVAN! I respond to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 voices. He could have anything! You know that's not true - come on - you're plenty good enough to release cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se aces.

The table calls cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 clock on me. I ask Ivan "If I fold will you show me?" "No," he answers. If he says yes, I'm calling in a heartbeat. But he said "No" - of course he did - he has a monster and wants me to call! This is such and easy fold I can't believe it. I count and recount my chips. I stand up and scratch my head. The dealer counts down. 30 seconds left.

I stack my chips. I'm mucking. I shake my head. I look at Ivan. "Ten. nine. eight. seven..." and a last thought goes through my head, proving I've hit rock botton: If I win this pot, I could dig myself out of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hole I've been sliding into for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last two days. My hands, as if acting on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir own, push my $550+ chips neatly into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot, as I watch in horror.

Ivan turns of 6-6: he flopped a set. The river is a ten, and I shake my head. No excuses. Digging myself out of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hole? Come on... I just dug myself into a hole that I have no chance of getting out of. Bad call. "It's Ivan, he could have anything" simply doesn't work as an excuse for a good player, which I envision myself as. Despite my brilliant play over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 session, this one mistake cost me about $1k. It wasn't bad luck. It wasn't a cold deck, it was a bad play.

I rebought, got ground down to $225, and lost my remaining stack with 2-2 in this cold-deck situation that typified cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 victim mindset I fell into: Ivan made it $20 preflop and 5 of us called. The flop came Q-Q-2 with two hearts. It was checked around. Turn: 8 of hearts. Bobby checked. Ivan bet $85. I moved all in for $205. Bobby called. Ivan called. I show my had to Sal, next to me, and he pats me on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 arm, whispering "There you go!" "I am not winning this pot," I sigh to him, beaten.

River: Jack of hearts: Bobby bets $300 and Ivan mucks. Bobby turns over - I don't even need to see it - I know already: Q-8. Unreal. I toss my 2-2 on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 felt, eliciting moans of worthless sympathy. Could I have bet cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 flop? Of course - but it wouldn't have made a difference. Bobby does not release a queen here. And my equity in letting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 flush draws chase cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir heart drawing dead was more than worth it anyway, considering that a queen isn't folding. Cold Fucking Deck.

I walk out into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rain without an umbrella, and manage to laugh at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 situation. More bad fucking luck. More cold fucking decks. Then I think back to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fact that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 big pot I lost had nothing to do with luck - NO EXCUSES - it was my own stubbornness, TILT, and desperation that cost me an extra $550 with aces in a hopeless situation.

I hit "play" on my Ipod, forgetting where I had stopped cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 music. Pearl Jam: Alive. "Ohhhh, I'm still alive," Eddie Vedder wails, as I laugh again, and smile at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 omen: yeah - I'm still alive. I'm shaking my head as I walk toward cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 subway in a slow, steady rain. The next song comes on: Why Go: with Vedder shrieking "Why go home? Why go home? Why go home?" Is someone trying to tell me something? I look for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hidden message... But I'm going home: I know why....

Cause it's not all about some bad calls and bad beats...

Live and learn.

Great stuff - I applaud cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m - but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is one major problem: cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ban doesn't apply on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 floor of Atlantic City casinos!

What? Now in NYC, when bars complained that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y would lose business to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 smoking ban, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y were full of shit: every bar and nightspot was on equal footing: unless smokers ceased going out entirely, which did not happen, business would go on. In New Jersey, however, even though casinos already have cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 most addictive product on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 market: cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 allure of easy money, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir lobbyists somehow convinced cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 legislature to give cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m a monopoly on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 second most addictive product: nicotine. That is a big load of crap - and local NJ business have every right to be pissed.

That is all.

I'm going to get a haircut today - very exciting - and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n I will make my Ali-like return to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 felt for some live NL play.

Bloodbath

You know you're a pro when you can get railed in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 backdoor and not even flinch. Wait - let me rephrase that, and add some details.

I played 4 hours of live 1-2NL today. The game was wild: loose action and huge pots. I bided my time, patiently mucking my trash hands and my missed flops, until, 90 minutes into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 session, I played cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot I was waiting for against an action player. Two players limped, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 cutoff, Bobby, raised to $15. I called with 4-4 in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 small blind, and $600 in my stack (Bobby had me covered). Two ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r came along.

flop: 2-4-Q rainbow. I bet out $40, and a limper called, as did Bobby.

The turn brought a jack, and Bobby flinched visibly. I bet $100, and with little hesitation, he raised it to $300. I counted down my chips: I had $460 left, which I pushed in. He called cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last $160, and Eddie dealt cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 river:

Queen. I tabled my 4-4, and Bobby showed Q-J. Aiyahh! Railed in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 backdoor for a $1300 pot - and I took it like a man. Right in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poop chute. "Chips."

Unfortunately, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rest of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 session didn't get any better. I got stacked with AJ suited in diamonds after this action: I raise UTG to $10, and get 5 callers. Larry in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 SB bumps it to $20 - a strange move: he's kinda on tilt, but he doesn't make this move without a hand he wants to play a big pot with. The BB calls in between us, and I debate a raise, but settle on a call. Everyone comes along. We see cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 flop:

2-3-Q with two diamonds. Larry checks, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 BB bets out $55, and I raise to $255. It's folded to Sal who moves all-in - he clearly has a set, and I call my remaining $150 to see his set of threes. The turn brings an ace, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 river is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 7 of clubs: I'm left digging into my pocket again.

Sal took anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r few hundred from me when he flopped a set of sixes vs. my QJ on a A-J-6 board, and called my $25 bet.. The turn brought a jack - cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 only card in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 deck that would get me to put more money in, as it was clear I was previously behind. I checkraised his $50 bet to $200, and he came over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 top all-in, but prematurely turned his cards over! I mucked, saving my last $160 - which I lost a few hands later when my TT ran into Will's QQ.

Net for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 session: -$1400. Ouch. One of my worst ever.

random thought: Have you seen Jeremy Piven's travel show? Lemme put it this way: I don't want to watch Jeremy Piven travel to India unless he's doing it in character as Ari cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Agent from Entourage. 'Nuff Said.

Phil Fun

Thanks to Paul Phillips for providing this tidbit: Bill vs Phil. If you're having trouble getting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Quicktime video on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 site to play, go to a computer where you can get it to work. It's worth it. Priceless. I give this clip to all of you as a present on my birthday. Yes - Wednesday, April 12th is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 day: Kid Dynamite's 30th B'day. It's a big number, so allow me cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 shameless self promotion.

For my birthday wish, I can only hope that poker players all over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 world will make 2006 cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 year of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Phil Hellmuth song, which cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y will sing whenever cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y stack an opponent... "You don't... wanna mess with Hellmuth - Why? 'Cause Hellmuth... will freakin' bust you." (sung in a douche-baggish Hellmuth sing-song voice)

A poster (The_Groove) on Paul's journal said is best: "If I had to devise a formula to create cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 prototypical jackass, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 end result would be very close to Phil Hellmuth."

Spring Fever

Red Sox Nation is ablaze with a fresh season of hopes and dreams, and enamored with young gun closer Jonathan Papelbon, new ace Josh Beckett, and new faces all over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 infield. Spring optimism now carries cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 weight of real expectations - not eternal disappointment, after cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 conquest in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 2004 season (which also finally featured cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 wedding of KD and Mrs. D).

As a Red Sox fan in New York, it comes from all sides: Big MO and H0nus send cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 good messages, words of Sox support ("Anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r 1-2-3 inning for Beckett," "Pap is a stud"). Zray represents cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 dark side: blasting me on AIM to tell me that Johnny "Judas" Damon doubled in his first at bat in Yankee Stadium. I retaliate by hitting Yankee fan EddieHilz with a screenshot of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 AL East standings, and a simple message: Suck It. He ignores me.

We watch not only our own box scores, but those of The Enemy. Sox win... "How'd cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Yanks do?" It's reflex. It's all that matters. Never mind that several baseball minds picked Toronto to win cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 AL East this year (I'd take cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Sox/Yanks over Toronto any day.) The Yankees are cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 competition.

The season is young, but now that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Red Sox have finally proved to be more than cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 little brocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r who sits cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re and takes his beating, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rivalry here in New York is better than ever. Now cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Sox have a hope. Now it's a fair fight. Well, almost fair...

But cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best tidbit of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 young season: Pitcher Bronson Arroyo - who cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Red Sox traded to Cincinnati for Willy Mo Pena (who let a ball bounce off his glove into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bullpen for a homer today), is 2-0 with a 1.98 ERA... and TWO HOME RUNS! Yes - Bronson has HIT two home runs! Unreal.

Meanwhile, back in Red Sox Nation, Coco Crisp has a broken finger, Trot Nixon has a pulled groin, and Keith Foulke is a shell of his former self (note: Keith Foulke almost singlehandedly won cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Red Sox cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 World Series in 2004 with impeccable pitching in zero margin of error situations time after time and inning after inning - it's essential that people remember this). On cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 flip side, Big Papi has a new contract, Manny is happy for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 moment, and Schilling is throwing 96 mph on his 110th pitch. Papelbon has cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 entire town talking, and Beckett is getting fired up.

It's gonna be anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r wild ride.

Quote of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Day

"I am pleased cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Ministry of Culture is protecting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 morals of expatriate bankers and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir girlfriends." - Mick Jagger, Rolling Stones

The Stones played Shanghai, China last night, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 culmination of an arduous road that resulted in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Chinese Ministry of Culture barring cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m from performing 5 songs ("Brown Sugar," "Beast of Burden," "Let's Spend cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Night Togecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r," "Honky Tonk Women" and "Rough Justice" ) which are, I suppose, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tool of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 White Devil. The funny thing is, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ticket prices ranged from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 equivalent of about $40 to $500, which meant that very few Chinese citizens could afford cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m, and prompted Mick's sarcastic quote above.

non-sequitors:

-I played 3 hours of live NL Hold'em last night, and finished down $235, thanks to a poor decision which resulted in my inability to release a hand that was clearly not best. I also played a few pots in fine form, which was a positive, at least.

-Bobby Bracelet is raising funds in memory of a friend's battle with cancer. If you'd like to support him, you can find cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 details on his web page.

-Oscar is recovering from Colitis - an infection of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 colon, and he's got a bunch of new toys. Here's a picture of him pouncing on his cousin Gustav.



-A few precious days remain until I'm officially "Old." Tonight's forecast calls for "Severe drunkenness, with an 80% chance of feeling like crap tomorrow."

Somebody Has to Say It

Phil Hellmuth is a pussy. There. I said it. I hope Phil doesn't use his uber-celebrity clout to have Google shut me down again...

If you aren't watching High Stakes Poker on GSN, you should be. Last week, Phil Hellmuth joined cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 game, prompting Danny Negreanu, stuck 700k, to cheer up visibly in his chair, as he exclaimed "I didn't think I'd have a chance to get even, but I didn't know you were coming - how much money did you bring?" Danny later explains that Phil is what's known as a "yum-yum" - a player cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y LOVE to have in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 game.

So, why do cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se pros love having Phil "NINE TIME WSOP bracelet winner" Hellmuth in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir game? Because he's a pussy! If you're going to play high stakes no limit poker, you cannot be a pussy.

In one particular hand, Phil, holding 6-8 (cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Vortex!) gets all in against Barry Greenstein (holding K-T) on a T-6-6 board. Phil asks cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 dealer to hold on for a second, as he counts his chips. Danny, eager to try to get out of his $700k hole, says "What are we waiting for?"

Phil replies, "I was told I could get insurance."
"You can run it twice" Todd Brunson chimes in.
"Insurance from WHO?" Danny is practically laughing now, in shock.
"Barry will insure me." Phil replies.
"Sure," Barry is quick to grab free EV when he sees it.

Now Sheik chimes in something, and Phil retorts, "I'm rich Kid, I want to stay that way."

Now let me explain: Phil was a 90-10 favorite. He knew this and Barry knew this. Phil proposed 10% insurance on $100k of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 $160k pot, which means he pays a 10% vig, and locks up his reduced equity on a portion of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot. In this case, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y basically take $100k out of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot, and Phil gets $80k, giving Barry $20k. They cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n deal cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 turn and river for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 balance of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot. So, long story short, Phil gave Barry $10k in EV to reduce his variance. And he wonders why he gets no respect in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 game?

After playing in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 wildest game I've ever seen, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Mirage Six Sigma Sunday game, I had numerous discussions with my poker peeps about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 willingness that a poker player should have to seek out positive EV situations. My question was getting down to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 essence of "If I have AT suited, and my maniacal opponent is moving all in every hand, shouldn't I be willing to call off my $1000 stack with this hand that figures to be way better than average. The answer was "not necessarily," as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re are many ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r factors in play, such as a) cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re was a max buy-in at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table ($500), which meant that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re was some value to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fact that I had a bigger stack, and could potentially find a HIGHER EV situation to apply it. b) This is not "cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 long run" - this game could end at any time.

Essentially, I felt that if I figured to be a 3-2 favorite, and I wanted to call myself a poker player, I should be willing to commit my stack in this spot. My colleagues argued that to be called a poker player does not mean you have to accept every potentially positive EV situation offered - you have to consider cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 likelihood that you'll be able to find a BETTER situation with more EV.

Now, back to Phil. He was already committed in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot, and flat out gave away EV. That is not something a poker player does. Ever. Especially if he wants respect at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table, and doesn't want cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r players to repeatedly take advantage of his puss-itude by running him over for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rest of his life. Ok, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is some point where I will concede that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 size of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot would dictate that it would be acceptable for a player to puss out and try to lock up some of it, but in this game, $160k was NOT that size.

Hellmuth tries to defend himself to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 wide eyed Daniel Negreanu, who seems like he wants to reach across cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table and grab Phil by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 neck, shouting "I can't believe you are such a colossal fucking pussy - and you call yourself a poker player?!?!?." Phil says "Ivey was giving me insurance all day - 10%, 5% even. All I had to do was call him and explain cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 situation." What Hellmuth is saying, I think, is that Ivey agreed to take Hellmuth's variance in exchange for a vig - Ivey wasn't even at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table, Hellmuth just had to call him up and explain cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 situation to him! Fuckin'A!!!! Hey Hellmuth - if you're giving away EV, call ME! I'll insure your hands you pussy!

Negreanu responds: "Of course he (Ivey) was - he's a smart guy - he'll take free money if you're giving it away."

The bottom line is, if Phil Hellmuth is asking for insurance on a $160k pot here, he shouldn't be in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 game. By all means: run it twice - run it three times, chop cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot based on EV... But don't pay a vig for your puss-itude. And seriously: when cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table runs you cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fuck over afterwards, don't raise your hands to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 sky and wonder why.

In this week's episode, Phil repeatedly made bets in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 neighborhood of 1/6th cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot size or less... He bet $3k into a $16k pot... He bet $1k into an $8k pot... and more. Every time he was run out of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot. If Phil is trying to set up his opponents so that he traps cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m when he finally makes a big hand, I would suggest he come up with a new game plan. He's not fooling anyone at this table, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 one time last week he decided to slowplay his QQ, he checked his way right into Jen Harman making a 1 card straight with her 8-4 offsuit, and lost cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot.

Of course, Phil finally gets fed up with being run over, and takes a stand with 6-6 on a 2-5-8 board when Barry puts him all in. Barry has a set of deuces, and Phil is liquidated AGAIN.

Nice hand sir.

The Ultimate Insult

So, last week I go to post some rambling blog post about my puppy, or how much Phil Hellmuth sucks, and Blogger tells me that my blog has been flagged by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir automatic software as a "SPAM blog"...

"The ease of creating and updating webpages with Blogger has made it particularly prone to a form of behavior known as link spamming. Blogs engaged in this behavior are called spam blogs, and can be recognized by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir irrelevant, repetitive, or nonsensical text, along with a large number of links, usually all pointing to a single site."

Wow - talk about a fuckin' insult.... Irrelevant, repetitive, nonsensical. That hurts. So, in true un-American fashion, Blogger declared me GUILTY until proven innocent, and took away my ability to post! The ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r problem is, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y ignored my desperate emails pleas (insisting that although I may be irrelevant and repetitive, I am most certainly NOT Spam!) for four days. Now, however, one week shy of my 30th b'day, I'm back. Certified Unspamified. Whitelisted. Phew.

I guess I can't write "Do not fuck with Phil Ivey" three times in a row, or some process thinks I'm spam. And cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 patented Bobby Bracelet self link technique is also spam-escent. Even though I post a lot of pictures of my boy Oscar, I don't see how those could be read as SPAM...



Bones was just about to start an uprising at his French bank, out of RAGE at my being unable to post and fresh ramblings - and believe me - you do NOT want angry Frenchies raging against you Blogger!

So, Phil Hellmuth will get anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r day of reprieve, before I mercilessly tear him apart in a post soon to come.

until next time,
KD
