Al Cant Hang Lives

Al Cant Hang called me from St. Martin to get cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Eagles score. They polished off four bottles of So-Co in record time. He's alive and well. This concludes today's Al Cant Hang update... approved of course by Al Cant Hang.


In case Al Cant Hang doesn't come back, he blogged his Will...
In cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 event of a terrible accident...

To Scott, I leave all my bottles of Soucá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rn. I think a Texan should be able to make proper us of my stash.

To Pauly, I leave my actual blog. He already has 10,689 blogs. What's one more?

To BoyGenius, I leave our semi-weekly game with Lewey. That should build cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bankroll nicely or drive you crazy. Not sure which would come first.

To Iggy, I leave my bankroll. Apparently he'll need it according to some low life anonymous commenter on his site. Idiots. Oh, don't get me going about anonymous commenters. Iggy > everyone.

To Halverson, I leave you Minnesota. It's not mine to give, but you can have it. Hey, at least cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Gourds played cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re. I don't even think cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y know that Philly exists.

To HDub, I leave my incredible poker skills. Actually, I wouldn't wish that on anyone. I take it back.

To cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Amish kid down cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 road, I leave my liver.

To Landow, I leave a clue.
I feel sorry for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Amish kid.

In less than six weeks, I'm making my seasonal December trip to Vegas with Derek to play poker and gamble on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 NFL. We came up with an idea of trying to find a casino to let us have a private table or even a private tournament. The Poker Prof suggested I contact Dick since he's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker room manager at Sam's Town and a fellow blogger from Buy It in Vegas. Dick wrote me back and said we're good to go for a Saturday afternoon tournament on December 11th at 1pm. However, we have to limit cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tourney to three tables... or 30 person max. That's why with a few exceptions, this is only open to bloggers. Please contact me as soon as possible if you'd like to play.

Dick said he could throw in some "door prizes" to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pool. The Poker Prof informed me that Charlie Shoten was interested in playing with us as one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 celebrity guests and hanging out before or afterwards to offer up a seminar/Q & A session. Felicia recently had a great write up about Charlie Shoten.

Anyway... if you're a blogger and wanna play, shoot me an email. I have about 15 spots available. I'm sure we'll be having some ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r prizes (bottles of SoCo) and bounties (Hilton Sisters).

Poll Results: Kerry's a Winner; Bush's a Poker Buddy
"It's not cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 people who vote that count.
It's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 people who count cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 votes."
- Joseph Stalin

Thanks to everyone who participated in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 polls. In a closer race than I expected, Kerry edges out Bush. Here's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 raw data.
Total Votes (182)
Kerry 86
Bush 66
Nader 13
Badarnik 3
NOT VOTING 18
With voting held on three of my blogs, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re were over 182 American voters. I had to throw out cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 responses from folks who insisted cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y were not going to vote. On cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Tao of Pauly, Kerry beat Bush 23 to 11, or by a 2 to 1 margin. However on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Tao of Poker, Bush only lost to Kerry by a smaller margin; 86 to 66. Those numbers sounded more accurate. With a bigger sample to poll from, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Tao of Poker appeals to a larger demographic... with more voters scattered throughout cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 country, but with a significant number of more readers from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 South and Midwest. Whereas cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Tao of Pauly's readers are an eclectic bunch of open minded people from all walks of life centralized in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 East Coast, California, and college towns (excluding Canada and Europe). The gender breakdown is more even on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Tao of Pauly with slightly more females readers than guys. I don't have cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 exact numbers but due to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 heavy content of gambling and poker on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Tao of Poker, I'm sure that only small percentage of readership are women. The numbers from my polls pretty much matched up with national averages. Men are more likely to vote for Bush along with people in a higher income bracket. Married voters with kids tend to vote more conservative than single voters in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir 20s.

Scary Trends

I was disturbed by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 number of people who admitted cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y were not voting or voting for third party candidates... almost 18% of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 total votes cast. An alarming number of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se people live on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 West Coast and in New York. And cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n throw in all those folks who read cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 sites and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poll... but chose not even to participate. Are those cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same folks who fall into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 50% of Americans who do not vote?

In cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 extremely important swing states, Kerry took Pennsylvania and won Florida by one vote. They tied Ohio and Wisconsin. Bush took Michigan and Missouri, while he posted big numbers in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 South. Florida and Ohio are cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 two biggest states in my eyes. Whoever wins those electoral votes will be President. And I'm not cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 only one who think so. More money is being spent on television ads in those two states than all 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 states combined.

Although California and New York were won by Kerry easily, it was also cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 two states where Nader got his most support. In addition, that was where cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 highest number of people suggested cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y were not going to vote at all. Do New Yorkers have a higher bullshit detector than most folks and don't trust eicá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r guy?

Overseas

My blogs are read all over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 world and I got some valuable feedback. A friend from England was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 sole Bush supporter... which falls in line with Great Britain as one of our few solid allies behind cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Bush Junta. My Canadian and Norcá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rn European readers expressed a sincere interest in Kerry. A response from a friend in Japan really made me think. Here's what a 20-something Japanese woman had to say:
If I am an American, I will vote for Kerry because I hate Bush. But I also don't believe Kerry. I like America and I like American people but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y (politicians) make your country bad. I think it is very important decision. I cannot decide it because I'm Japanese. The future is in your hands. So I just hope cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 world will be good.
A simple message from 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 side of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 world told me that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re are a lot of people paying attention to next Tuesday and understand cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 significance of everyone's vote or non-vote. And it's sad that more non-Americans have a better grasp on American politics than cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 guy sitting next to you on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 subway or cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 dude behind cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bar of your favorite drinking establishment.

I don't care who you vote for... just go out and do it.

Poll II

The second poll (Who would you racá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r invite to your home poker game? Bush or Kerry?) was my favorite. I only held voting on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Tao of Poker. Make sure you read cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 comments thread. There are some hilarious answers from my fellow poker bloggers.

The results are a shocker. Bush won by a landslide. Everyone would racá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r have Dubya sitting in your kitchen drinking beers, playing cards, and telling knock knock jokes. I guess that's part of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 reason why some many undecided voters end up voting for Bush. he has a likeable quality, that despite his politics, you can sit down and have a conversatin with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 guy. He's flawed and that makes him more real... more like one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 guys... than Kerry, who often appears stiff and overtalks like a two-bit preacher with that cheesy used car salesman's smile.

My readers have spoke. Send Kerry to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 White House and let Bush play in your home games.

Who do I think is going to win? I'm calling for anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r overtime! Just like 2000 and Bush will lose cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 popular vote, but still win narrow victories in big states like Florida and Ohio to put him over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 top. I put my money on Bush cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 second I woke up on 9.12.01 and I'm still waiting to cash that ticket.

Who am I voting for? Not Kerry. If you asked him to flip a coin and pick heads or tails, you know he'd say both, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n take your quarter. There's no way I'd vote for Bush. I'm going with Nader, a safe vote in pro-Kerry NY, unless that Marijuana Reform Party candidate sways my vote with a last minute session.

Thanks again for your participation.

Last Thursday at Foxwoods
"Poker is about folding hands that don't have a good chance of winning." - The Poker Penguin
I was spending a few days in Naragansett, RI. My buddy Senor took cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 day off so we could hang out and go play a round of golf. The weacá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r wasn't holding up so we opted for a run to Foxwoods instead. Senor's a busy guy getting his MBA while working full time and with a 11 month old kid at home. The guy never has time for poker so he was super excited to play $4/8 at Foxwoods with me! A lot had changed since he last gambled at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker room. Management moved cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 low limit stud tables to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 front of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker room and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 entire room was filled with hold'em tables and higher limit stud and Omaha tables. Senor lived less than 40 minutes away and we were seated immediately but at different tables by 10am.

I have to remind you that this was last Thursday... just 10 hours after cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Red Sox stormed back to defeat cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Yankees. I was behind enemy lines, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 lone Yankees fan amid a sea of Red Sox fans. And of course cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 majority of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table chatter was involved one of two topics; 1. The Red Sox and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 World Series or 2. How much cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Yankees sucked. Yeah, I never had more fun at a poker table.

$4/8 Hold'em. I bought in for $200. I was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 youngest guy at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table. The guy in Seat 9 looked just like Ernest Hemingway. He was gambling like Papa on a belly full of whiskey seeing any flop. The guy next to him reminded me of Ron Jeremy, except he had his clocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365s on and he was wearing a Red Sox hat. His stack went up and down more than Monica on Bubba Clinton's Presidential member. Hemingway was a rock compared to that clown. The reason I spoke about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se guys was obvious. Those fuckers bad beat'd me on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 river.


11:00am EST... -24. I played super tight cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first hour. I wanted to take it easy and get a read on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 players before I went after any pots. Getting shitty cards helped. I played one hand out of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 blinds, raising cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot in LP when AsJs and folded when all diamonds hit.

Noon EST... -80. I checked on Senor and he started out hot and fizzled. I saw a few flops with small pairs and I hit a flop with A10o in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 LB. The flop: A-10-8. I checked-raised and Hemingway raised me with QJ! I raised back. A rag fell on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 turn I fired out, he raised, I reraised and he capped. The river: K. I checked he bet and I just called because I had a feeling he hit a big hand... a Broadway straight. Oh, 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 guy who stayed in... had 10-8o!

1pm EST... -122. The friggin Hilton Sisters screwed me at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same time Ron Jeremy was irking cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table eating chicken fingers and talking to people on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rail, when he should have been paying attention to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 action. I raised in EP with QQ and got five callers. The flop: J-7-4. Turn: 5. River: 4. What did he have? 2-4o.

2pm EST +20... I won my first huge pot of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 session to break even. It involved two players... Hemingway and a loose kid who joined cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table twenty minutes earlier and quickly blew his $200 buy in. He barely had a short stack. I had cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Hilton Sisters again and I were playing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m fast. I opened up cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 betting preflop with a raise, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 kid reraised, and Hemingway bumped it up to cap it out... and five players total in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot. The flop: Q-J-3. I checked thinking that I was going to get a lot of action with whoever had JJ. The kid threw cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rest of chips and he was all in. Hemingway bet, everyone else folded, I raised and he called. We were going heads up for a side pot. The turn: K. That was a scary card. I bet, he raised and I reraised. He called which made me feel somewhat safe. I was hoping cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 board would pair so I could escape with a full boat just in case one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 two hit a straight. The turn: K. I had cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 nuts and check-raised Hemingway who called with Big Slick. I didn't know why he didn't raise cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re. But I got lucky on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 river. The kid had A-10s and hit a Broadway Straight on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 turn. Pissed, he stormed off in Hellmuthian fashion. It felt good to slowly scrape of a pile of yellow chips and organize cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m into several columns, twenty high. I played a few more orbits and finished down $15. I left when Senor wanted to grab lunch. He had a down session dropping a little over $100.

We grabbed some chicken fingers and fries and discussed cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 second half of our session. he was going to sit at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 lower limit stud tables and relax while I waited for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 various satellites for different World Poker Finals events. I finally got called for an Act II satellite. $150 single table (10 person) NL. First place won a seat in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Act II ($1000+), second and third got cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir money back for a free roll into a second Act II.
The players:
Seat 1: Hipster Sox fan wearing Johnny Damon Jersey
Seat 2:
Seat 3:
Seat 4:
Seat 5:
Seat 6: Pauly
Seat 7: Loud Mouth Table Captain
Seat 8:
Seat 9:
Seat 10: Bald guy who looked like George Costanza
I'm only giving names to those folks because that's who I really played against. Within cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first two levels, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 game went from a full ten to 6 handed. A few hands later, it was four handed and we played for almost an hour.

Level 1: Starting out with T1000, I limped in EP with JJ and folded when two overcards hit cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 flop. After a few hands, I got a feel for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table and treated this tourney just like a Party Poker SNG. I was going to wait for a good hand in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 early levels and let everyone knock each ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r out early, while attempting to study cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 stronger players... picking up on obvious tells and moving on to discovering cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 more subtle ones. I look at hands and nostrils... how are cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y breathing? And in what manner do cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y pick up cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir chips to bet?

Level 2-3: I didn't see much paint and folded both my weak aces at a very loose table. I let cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 maniacs knock each ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r out.

Level 4: I was short stacked and moved all in in EP with 10-10. I won a race with AJ and knocked out my first guy of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 day. The game was four handed. And cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table captain was raising everyone's blinds. I was hoping for any marginal hand, because I wanted to call. The one time I had a small pair, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hipster on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 button moved all in for a re-steal and I folded. He flashed cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Hilton Sisters as he picked up cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 blinds.

Level 5: Shortstacked I moved all in with J10s in EP. Everyone called (roughly 2x cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 BB). I flopped a flush! And tripled up to over T2100! I moved all in with A9s in EP trying to steal cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 blinds and George Costanza called with Big Slick. I got up and put on my blazer. The table captain, in his thick Boston accent, "Wear ya going? That 9 is still alive!" I pushed in my seat as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 flop was unfurled and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re was a 9! To make insult to injury I hit my trips on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 river and doubled up.

Level 6: With 66 in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 BB and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 shortstack, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hipster moved all in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 LB. I pushed all in thinking we'd have a race and a coin flip situation. He flipped over 99. I was toast and bubbled out. 4th place. Costanza and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Table Captain were regulars and had been playing several of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se 4150 satellites a week and admitted that our game was one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 toughest and longest. I had nothing to compare to aside from 2003 satellites. Oh well.

Senor had been sweating me for a few levels. He won a few bucks playing $1-5 Stud and admitted that he's going to stick to playing Stud. Felicia would be happy to hear that. It was a decent session. Down $15 playing 4/8 and down $165 overall after finishing 4th in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Act II.

Random Odds and Ends

Felicia and Glenn will be at Foxwoods next week! I will stop by on Thursday for sure to sweat her in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 $1000 Stud World Poker Finals event starting at 10am EST.

Something Completely Different


I had not played at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Blue Parrot since my birthday. There was an event last week, but I skipped last Monday's NL tournament to watch cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 friggin' Yankees drop Game 5 of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ALCS in extra innings. This week was supposed to be a little different. The buy in was dropped from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 usual $100 to $50. The previous games at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Blue Parrot are hyper competitive and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 seats are with skilled players from all walks of life. Signor Ferrari was encouraging binge drinking and loose play with an emphasis on a fun night of poker, which included explaining some strategy and different games with some of 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 newbie players. Plus, it was Ladies Night at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Blue Parrot. And drunk Pauly saw lots of flops and walked away cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 big loser. From my first sip of Molson, I went into Gus Hansen mode. From every position I raised with any ace, two suited cards, any paint and any pair. I always defended my blinds to a raise... even with crap. I raised on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 button with nothing and jammed cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pots whenever I had position. I also got sucked out a few times on and lost a couple of hands in Stud on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 river. I was shocked to see that I was down so much. I guess I was having a good time... losing. That's rare.
The Players:
Seat 1: Asphnxma from Riding cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 F Train
Seat 2: Marie
Seat 3: Signor Ferrari
Seat 4: Julie
Seat 5: Diane
Seat 6: Jon
Seat 7: Pauly
8:15pm EST... The usual limits are $2/4 for rounds of hold'em and Omaha with a $1-5 spread on Stud games. Late nights after 2am, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 limits get bumped up to $3/6. Last night, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 limits were dropped to $1/2 hold'em and Omaha and .25c/$3 spread for Stud. Jon was a first time participant at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Blue Parrot. His background check with Homeland Security cleared earlier in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 day and got cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 greenlight to play from Tom Ridge and his boys. I had not played with Marie in several months. It was good to hear her lovely British accent at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table which always added a tinge of class to 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 bet365rwise lot of degenerate gamblers. Although Julie had played at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Blue Parrot before, this was my first time sitting at a table with her. Regulars Asphnxma and Diane filled 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 seats while cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 beer and red wine flowed steadily.

8:34pm EST... -22. I dropped a pot to Ferrari who river'd me with a straight. I had QJ and flopped top pair. I kept raising and Ferrari called me all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way until he caught runner-runner for his gutshot straight. You know it's going to be a long night when you lose your first hand to running gutshots.

9:03pm EST... -3. After a quick tutorial on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 intricacies of Omaha for Julie, Marie called a round of Omaha hi/lo. I saw every flop with crap. Usually I play super tight in Omaha but wanted to at least see cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 flop for a buck and fold afterwards. I won one pot with A39T.

9:35pm EST... +20. Back to hold'em and I beat out Asphnxma's pocket 55s with ATo. I flopped top pair and he saw me all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way to a river. Normally he would have folded but since it was $1/2 hold'em we kept jamming cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot like we both had AA. By that point, everyone was a little tipsy.

9:46pm EST... Perhaps it could have been cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hand of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 night? All I know was that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 action was capped preflop with raises and reraises. I tried to limp in with J9o. Asphnxma started off cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 raising fest, followed by Ferrari and Diane's reraises. I foolishly called mumbling something about "pot odds" as I swigged my Molson Golden. The flop: 4-6-4. I bailed out and again cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 betting was capped. The turn: 5. Ferrari finally got out and I could see from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 anguish on Asphnxma's face when he flashed me his cards. He wasn't happy with his high pocket pair. A Jack ht cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 turn. No help for eicá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r players. Diane hit her straight on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 turn with 87s while Asphnxma sighed and flipped over his AA. Ouch. Here's his take:
I knew I was beat on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 turn, showed Pauly my aces and said "I'm beat", and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n called to a river showdown. These would be two running cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365mes of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 night: people catching gutshots (or in Pauly's case, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 runner-runner Pauly special), and me calling bets when I knew I was beat. I have a tendency to do that, especially with unknown players
9:55pm EST... +36. I hit my first and only rush of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 night. During a round of hold'em I was getting plenty of marginal hands and raised everytime I entered a pot winning decent sized pots with K-10 and K9s.

10:15pm EST... +27. Julie pulled off a masterful move bluffing Ferrari out of a pot on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 river when a third diamond hit. As soon as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 diamond spiked on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 river, I blurted out, "The lady hit her flush!" in between long swigs of my Molson... cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 official Canadian beer of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Tao of Poker. Julie fired out and Ferrari raised her. She played right back and went over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 top of him. He quickly folded. She raked in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot and flipped over her cards. Nothing. Not even one red card!

10:52pm EST... -35. I started bleeding worse than when Tatiana Totmianina knocked her noggin' on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ice 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 night. I called three bets preflop with Q6o for fuck's sake and I was drunk, but nowhere near Al Cant Hang drunk and never should have pissed away my chips like my alter ego, that drunken Russian sailor on shore leave in Bangkok, which I thought I killed off, but alas, he resurfaced at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Blue Parrot. I slowly gave all my chips away on a collection of loose calls. During a round of Omaha hi/lo, I found cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Hilton Sisters in my four cards for three consecutive times. One hand was brutal. Even with an ace flopping, I called to see cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 turn... and anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r Q hit for my set. I saw cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hand all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 river even with a flush possibility out cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re and lost to Jon's AA! Set over set. Ouch. The Hiltons were killing me once again. And Julie could have won that pot if she stayed in... she had two little diamonds which was good enough to win cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 high end of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot with a flush.

11:01pm EST... -60. I was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 big blind with Q6s. Marie raised preflop, Diane reraised and I cold called. The flop: Q-10-Q. I checked my trips, Marie bet, Diane raised, and I reraised, Marie called, Diane reraised to cap, and I called. The turn was an Ace and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 betting was capped again. I thought out loud, "Which one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ladies has cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 AJ?" The river was a K and I knew I was cooked. I checked, Marie checked, Diane bet and we both called. Marie showed AK and Diane took down cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot with J-10. Again she caught running cards to catch a straight. It was time for my first rebuy. I guess I can't complain, I always want players raising into me with two pair when I have trips.

11:54pm EST... Lots of action preflop. In a $1/2 game with lots of raising, it was not uncommon to see $12-15 in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot preflop. I knew Julie had a monster hand. Her tell was pretty obvious and I won't be publishing it here. Do your own homework. Earlier in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 night I asked her if she had QQ and sure enough she did. The flop: J-3-6. Again cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 betting was capped on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 flop. The turn was anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r rag and Asphnxma flashed me his cards... AJ... and folded. He knew he didn't have cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best hand. It was heads up with Ferrari and Julie. The river: A. Ferrari hit his pair with ATo. Julie showed her KK and fell victim to anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r Ferrari beat on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 river. Of course if Asphnxma stayed in, he would have hit his two pair! The one time he played tight, it cost him cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot!

12:10am EST... -98. Jon and Marie left. Earlier, Julie made a general observation that she could out drink anyone at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table. We all gave her a hard time. Ferrari laughed pretty loud and said, "You can't out drink me, and I know for a fact Pauly could drink me under cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table." Asphnxma gave me a look like, "You survived a weekend with Al Cant Hang!" If only I could put that on my resume... just after International Bond Trader and before Screenwriter. I'm willing to take on any prop bet and quickly took Julie up on her offer.

12:13am EST... Ferrari went heads up with Julie in anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r pot. He had KJ and flopped top two pair. Julie had a flush draw and chased to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 river. She scooped up anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r pot from Ferrari. I had to rebuy a second time when I tossed $40 Julie's way and she gave me some of her chips.

12:40am EST... -110. Julie and Asphnxma went heads up. Julie had a flush draw again and with a crappy flop and even a worse turn, I was starting to wonder if anyone had anything. The river was a 2 and Asphnxma fired out. Julie called with nothing and Asphnxma showed The Hammer! His pair of twos was good enough to win.

1:15am EST... -121. Ugly got hideous real fast. It could have been worse. I only played one hand of Anaconda and didn't lose a lot of money. Stud was killing me. By fifth street I had 5-5/A-6-A. Ferrari ended up catching a full house on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 river with Js over 6s. Ouch.

1:35am EST... The Real Hand of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Night?
Ferrari: KK
Julie: AA
Diane: QQ
Pauly JJ... w/ J of hearts!
Asphnxma: 86o.
The flop: Ah-Kh-Qh. I blurted out, "Looks like a Party Poker flop!" Diane was shortstacked and she was all in so we had to set up a side pot. The betting was capped on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 flop just like it was preflop. I was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 only one who didn't hit cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 set, but I chased anyway.

The turn: As. Julie flashed her tell once again and I looked over at Diane and I picked up a new tell that she gave off when it was apparent that she hit a full house. The betting was capped.

The river: 10h. I looked up at Julie. "Do you have Big Slick?" She smiled and raised Ferrari's opening bet. I reraised, Ferrari capped it and we all showed our cards. I beat out Julie's four aces with a Royal Flush!

Too bad we rigged cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 deck.

Let's flashback ten minutes earlier. The ladies stepped outside for a smoke break. I decided to get Ferrari and Asphnxma to playa little joke on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m. Let me put out this disclaimer... I am not a cheater and as proprietor, Signor Ferrari will not tolerate cheating at his place. What we did was out of pure fun... not for monetary gain. We were careful to make sure everyone got cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir money back after cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hand was over. We were drunk, silly, and having a good time. OK, so let's get back to my story. We set up a cold deck. Asphnxma raced to make sure we got monster hands with one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ladies nailing four aces only to lose on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 river to a Royal Flush. Julie was a great sport about it and in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 process I picked up a tell on Diane that I never knew existed before. When it was over I asked cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table, "Was this a blogworth hand?" Definitely.

By cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way, in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 future, you might wanna cut any deck twice that Asphnxma shuffles.

My notes ended shortly after that hand. We played for a little while longer but when our night of drollery was complete, I was down $123. How was that possible for a small stakes game? I went swimming with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 sharks at Foxwoods last week and only dropped $185. Bad beats, loose calls, and sad running suckouts did me in. All that didn't matter because I had a good time. In cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last year I have been playing serious poker and sometimes cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 intense stress levels have taken away cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fun aspect of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 game. It feels good to sit down at a table and throw all that Sklansky out of a 19 story building and just sit down, drink, tell awful jokes, and have fun. After a losing month, I needed a night of social poker to help get my head back on track. A jovial night concluded with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 four of us nearly getting run over by a taxi on 8th Avenue when we all tried to cross cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 street with a red light! Engrossed in deep conversation about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 night's game, we ignored all rules of pedestrian traffic.
The Finally Tally:
Ferrari +96
Diane +71
Marie +32
Julie +25
Jon -18
Asphnxma -33
Pauly -123
A good turnout for Ladies Night at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Blue Parrot... since cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ladies walked away up over $130 and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 two poker bloggers were down $150+!

Lost Monday

I misplaced my notes on my Foxwoods trip last Thursday. As soon as I can dig cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m up, I'll post my trip report.

In cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 meantime, you can read two blurbs on my main blog Tao of Pauly.

1. Random Rhode Island Stories is a collection of ramblings about some of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 things I did to pass my time during my trip to Naragansett, embedded deep into Red Sox territoy, while visiting one of my best friends from college which includes hanging out with my 11 month old "nephew". Here's a bit:
I sprinted into action and found Little Senor standing at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 foot of a table with two attractive URI students. They were waving "Hi" when I finally caught up to him. They laughed when I picked him up and carried him back into our section.

"They're also in love with you too little man. Here's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 deal. I want you to run back in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re and go back to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same table."

I put down Little Senor and he darted for 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 section. On cue he walked right up to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table of coeds. The blonde smiled, "You are sooo cute!"

"I'm sorry about that. My nephew just started walking a week or so ago. Now he won't stop."

"It's OK," cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y both said in unison. "He's sooo adorable."

Little Senor flashed him his patented smile and exposed his two little teeth. "Totally. He's more cuter than a basket full of puppies. By cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way, I'm Pauly."

WBT 5: Poker Stars Fall Classic



Greetings from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 smallest state in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 union. I woke up early on Thursday and inhaled a couple of deep breaths of fresh early morning New England sea air as I casually took pictures. The Rhode Island coast is majestic and I quickly understood why my buddy Senor moved his family to Naragansett. After almost a year of life in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fast lane, it was soothing to get to take a break from being me for a couple of days and allow my mind to wander aimlessly to ponder cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 important things in life while staring out at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ocean for hours at a time. And cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best part of getting away from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 city... Foxwoods was just a little more than 35 minutes away... and Senor took Thursday morning off so we could go gamble! I'll post my Foxwoods trip report in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 near future... which included a $15 loss at a $4/8 table and a paltry 4th place bubble finish in a $150 ACT II tournament (roughly it's a SNG with a chance at winning a seat in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 World Poker Finals) and being cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 lone Yankees fan in a disgusting sea of Red Sox faithfuls.

I started cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 day off at a casino... and I ended cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 day in front of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 computer in Senor's basement office relentlessly cursing at those damn Hilton Sisters after placing 63rd in Iggy's latest poker blogger tournament. At 8:45pm, Senor kicked his wife off cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 computer to let me fire up Poker Stars and install AIM. His 11 month old son wished me luck as most 11 months could do... he rubbed my face with his hand covered in baby drool. I took it as a blessing from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker gods. I tried to wipe off my face, opened up my notebook to a fresh page and was stunned to see that 133 players signed up for a prize pool of over $2200. Wow! Almost $800 going to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 winner. It was going to be a huge pay day. I was pumped to play with my brocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r in our first poker blogger tournament togecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r (he played in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Pacific fiasco which I skipped to go to Santa Fe) and I knew that Coach and some ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs like Signor Ferrari and Asphnxma from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Blue Parrot signed up. I also heard that Wil Wheaton was going to finally join us... which certainly excited all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 degenerate gamblers in bloggerdom. I recall that last spring, Grubby contacted Ben Affleck's people to invite him to play... and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y promptly blew us off. Don't expect me to go see that awful Christmas movie now... Affleck. Felicia got pro Roy Cooke to play with us a couple of times and that was fun. Alas, Wil's a good egg and he signed up looking to take down some of his favorite poker bloggers and even pimped cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tourney on his popular blog.

Yeah, at 8:59pm EST, I had one of those existentialist moments like, "How cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hell did I get here?" I was sitting in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 basement in a coastal town in Rhode Island playing online poker with 132 ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r degenerate gamblers, stuck in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 middle of Red Sox nation licking my wounds after a horrible Yankees collapse, with baby drool on my face, and gleefully humming cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 words to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365me song from Diff'rent Strokes...
"The world don't move to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 beat of just one drum
What might be right for you, may not be right for some.
A man is born, he's a man of means.
Then along come two, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y got nothing but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir jeans."

Shoot me an email or leave a comment and I'll do my best to correct it. And let me say that I'm sorry I also didn't get to talk to everyone. I wasn't trying to blow anyone off. With my AIM ringing off cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hook and trying to watch my brocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r's table, taking notes, fielding calls from Briana who was checking up on my progress, oh and most importantly playing in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tourney... yep, I was definitely all over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 place. It was cool to chat with some bloggers I never spoke to before and to be recognized by loyal readers of my blog(s). I've been saying that playing in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se poker blogger tourneys are insane... kind like showing up to a cocktail party on speed... oh yeah and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re's gambling involved an dif you are lucky enough... having a bounty on your head.

Level 1: The key to winning 100+ person multis is survival. My goal in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first hour is not to get knocked out while looking for that rare chance to double up early. I won a small pot in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first orbit with AKs. I saw a flop with 44 and folded and took down anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r pot went I moved all in with AKo. I had a feeling that my reputation preceded me... because everytime I raised a sizable amount, everyone folded. T1440 and I was 74th out of 128.

Level 2: I saw Jake from Flopped cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Nuts' AA get cracked by Nktek's 87s on a river straight. I was happy it wasn't mine! I was sweating Derek's table and he was sitting at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same table as Otis. I kept getting comments in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 chat from Spock326. At first I thought it was Wil, but when I checked I realized it was Signor Ferrari from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Blue Parrot. I saw that Derek got knocked out and I missed cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 action. At least he wasn't cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first guy to get booted, but might have been cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first blogger to get KO'd. I limped in with anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r small pocket pair 33 and folded crap cards after crap cards. That's when I saw The Hammer staring at me. I wanted to win cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tournament and logic told me to fold but this was a poker bloggers tournament after all... and in honor of Grubby... I felt compelled to at least see a flop with The Hammer! I limped in and caught an open ended straight draw when 689 fell on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 flop. After everyone checked to me I moved all in. I took down cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot uncontested and proudly showed my 27o which drew some catcalls from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 railbirds. In my best Elvis impression (Fat Elvis, I don't do Skinny Elvis), I quivered my lip and muttered, "Thank you. Thank you very much!" The level ended and I had T1400 and was 67 out of 121. Not good, but not bad eicá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r. The King would have been proud and that's all that matters.

Level 3: I saw a flop with AQs and folded when nothing helped me. I lost a few chips cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re. Then I saw The Hammer for a second time in twenty minutes. I moved all in in late position. I took a deep breath and pictured Friday morning's blogger headlines, "Good Doctor Bounced by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Hammer!" Everyone folded, I stole cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 blinds and two limp bets, and showed 27o for a second time. I thrust my arms out in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 air, made dual Peace signs and in my best Dick Nixon voice shouted, "I am not a crook!" The level ended and I was 81st out of 11 with T1100 and not looking good. I checked to see who got booted and was surprised to see some familiar names; NemoD, Mr. Decker, Derek, and Boy Genius.

Level 4: After cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 blinds came around, I had T900 and was moved to a new table.

Seat 1: TXAcsUp

On cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 third or fourth hand I was dealt AA. I pushed all in hoping to get one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bigger stacks to call me to double me up. No callers. I glanced at my notes. My five winning hands: AKs, AK, 27o, 27o, and AA. I was watching Coach's table (TP was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re too) and cheering him on when Wil got moved after his table was broken up. I caught cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tail end of Wil bad beating Coach's AJs with KTs. I picked both Coach and Wil to make cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 final table and that heads up battle was ruining my chances at winning cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 side pool. Coach, one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 biggest Star Trek scholars I know, slipped out, "Nice hand, Wes." A couple of hands later Coach moved all in with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Hilton Sisters and TP had him right away with his pocket Kings, er... Hellmuth's as F Train would say. Wil wrote something hilarious in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 chat like, "That's karmic payback for calling me Wes." Poor Coach was kicked to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 curb by skanky hotel heiresses. Some guys would pay top dollar for that honor. Coach only forked up $22. With one of my picks for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 final table gone... I was pulling for Wil and Maudie (who was 5th in chips). The level ended and at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first break I was in 75th place. 90 players were left and I had T900. Notable players KO'd included; Life's a Grind, Coach, DoubleAs, Helix, Otis (anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r one of my final table picks!), Blu, Johnny Flop Bot, AlCantDance, Halverson, The Film Geek, and Signor Ferrari.

Level 5: With a slew of good players gone I should have liked my chances. Nope. My stack was looking thinner than a strung out cokehead model from Copenhagen. I made cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 decision to move all in at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first sight of a face card, heck, or any two suited. Luckily I had nothing but crap and I folded a few hands while I watched Iggy's table. He moved all in with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Hilton Sisters and lost to 99 when a third 9 spiked. Ouch. Second time I saw cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Hilton Sisters take out a friend. The scantly clad btiches were feisty and not taking it easy on anyone. I stole cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 blinds when I pushed all in with JJ, KJ, and A4s. I moved up to T1350 and was 57 out of 78. I noticed that Iggy, Wil and CJ were all booted.

Level 6: The blinds were getting up cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re and I still need to play aggressive. I heard HDouble was booted as well as Pokerama, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Poker Genius, and John Paul. Wil stopped by to tell me he dug my av/icon. I must say that I thought cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re were some creative ones out cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re, but how can you top Arnold from Diff'rent Strokes? By cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way, Maudie was that a picture of you as a youngster? The bloggers were dropping out quickly. In late position I saw QJs. I pushed all in and Grubette called me with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Hilton Sisters. They ruggedly molested me like cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 dog that I am. When it was over I was violated and left speechless with a flimsy T187. I usually like getting beat up by rich women, but not in front of 150 or so of your blogging peers, faithful readers, and friends. I was last place in chips and at one point I typed into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 chat, "I'll let cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rail decide if I should move all in..." Of course cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 entire peanut gallery egged me on to push! HDouble comically wrote, "Nice friends." I folded! And went all in during my big blind. 56o vs. pocket 10s. I was done. 63rd place. Thanks for playing and don't let cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 door smack you in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ass on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way out.

I cheered on Landow and Hank987 while sweating Sean's, Maudie and Asphnxma's table. Then I heard that someone cracked AA with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Hilton Sisters. Man cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 girls were out ruining everyone's night! Tactix from Bullets in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Hole. Looks like I'll be shipping a Pauly painting to Canada! Good job.

I watched cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 final table in between chatting with Maudie after she got knocked out. Congrats to everyone who made it... and especially to both to Todd Commish and MtDewVirus for a great ending.

Of course thanks to Iggy for setting everything up. Thanks for everyone for watching my table and cheering me on. Again, I wish I had more time to chat with everyone. My first full poker day ended with a 6+ hour stint at Foxwoods and a 63rd place finish in WBT 5. I saw cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Hiltons relentlessly ravish cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hearts of young poker players and some newer bloggers make a name for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365mselves. Grubby's arranging cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 next event. I dunno if I can play in that one... which made Thursday night a little more special. I wish I had more to say about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 night, but I have some walking along cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ocean I'd like get done before I write about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last few days. Before I go, I will share cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 funniest thing I heard all night. It was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last thing Briana said to me before she wished me good luck... "Tell Wil that I loved him in Kangaroo Jack."

Happy 1,000,000...

Someone shoot me!

1,000,000 words. I have infected cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 cyber world with one million words and 4,500+ posts worth on all my combined blogs. Don't believe me? Blogger never lies.

When I told my brocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r he was surprised it didn't happen sooner. On that note... I'm taking a break for a few days. A well deserved break from blogging. I'm going out of town driving up to Naragansett, Rhode Island. I'll post Yankees write ups and Galactic reviews and any poker tournament write ups this weekend.

I have to thank a special person... Skippy from The Daily Dave for encouraging me to start my first blog cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Tao of Pauly. Any complaints about my million word infection? Shoot him. And thanks to Haley for encouraging me to keep on blogging when I wanted to quit. You can shoot her too. Thanks for reading.

Truckin', On cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Road, and Ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r Random Stuff

I finished 305 out of 6708 on a Poker Stars free roll. 55 lost to A2s. Ugh. I also lost my fantasy football league matchup by 2.75 points. So close, yet so far.

The ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r night HDouble posted his year in review and yesterday Chris Halverson posted his. Both are excellent write ups and should not be missed. Halverson and HDouble are a part of my daily poker blog reading diet.

The Poker Penguin resurfaced after a long break. He's trying to get me to go out to Yukon Territory. I've never been cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re before. I'll put it on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 top of my 2005 travel list next in between: Thailand and Paris. Although I have to say cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 entire concept of a moose freaks me out, I'm all up for a trek into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Canadian wilderness.

Congrats to Blu for a huge 12K win on Party Poker. Awesome!

Felicia is blogging on blogger again. Don't miss her honest write ups of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 WPPA. And unless you've been living in a convent, Iggy announced that he quit his job and is going to play poker professionally full time. God bless him.

Congrats to Signor Ferrari for winning his NL tournament at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Blue Parrot last night. Asphnxma and I both skipped out to watch cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Yankees blow anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r late lead. Good news is that Coach came in 4th! And he's going to offer up a copy of his book Reading cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Sports Page if you knock him out his AA with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Hilton Sisters in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Poker Stars tournament on Thursday night at 9pm. So if you KO Coach... you get a shot at a painting and a great book. Unfortunately Ugarte cannot play on Thursday because he has a comedy gig in NYC. If you are looking for something to do, visit his upcoming gigs calendar.

I'm hitting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 road, driving up to Rhode Island for a few days, but will be logging on Thursday night to drop cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hammer on The Poker Geek in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker bloggers tourney.

Truckin' October 2004 (Vol. 3, Issue 10)

This is my favorite time of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 month, when I publish anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r issue of my literary blog-zine.

Tournament Week, Single Nicky, and Marc Bulger

Random NYC poker oddity of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 day... I forgot to tell you that a couple of weeks ago I had lunch with my friend Jenna. And afterwards we saw actress Chole Sevigny looking around in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker books section at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Barnes & Noble near Union Square. Maybe she's brushing up for an upcoming episode of Celebrity Poker Letdown?

I'm missing out on a $100 buy in NL tournament at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Blue Parrot tonight hosted by Signor Ferrari. I can't miss cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Yankees game, man. I'm willing to sacrifice poker and a shot at a $500 pay day for a Yankees-Red Sox game. Priorities. My online poker playing and blogging time had been cut down this past week. And cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y'll slow down to a moderate trickle when I go out of town for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 week... heading up to Boston, Connecticut, and to Rhode Island. I recently upped my mimimum personal writing time from two hours a day to four. That's a daily discipline I've tried my best to hold myself to for almost two years. I used to have a "write five pages a day" rule but I like cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 two hours... er, four hour workouts better. I also added two hours of reading time... novels mostly... to my daily routine. It feels good that I cut down on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 internet time and TV time and reading endless articles about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 upcoming election and dare I say reading my favorite poker blogs and Alexa's blog (my favorite blog from a NYC escort). Alas, I lost 1/6 of my day in order to prepare for a major writing project I'm undertaking next month.

Thursday, October 21st at 9pm EST on Poker Stars... $20 buy in

Anyway, I funded Derek's Poker Stars account today, so he's good to go. We've never played in a blogger tourney togecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r. We played togecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r in tournaments in Vegas and Foxwoods, but never in a blogger sanctioned event. Visit Iggy's site for more details. I think my friend Jay is going to play and I know that Coach, a Blue Parrot regular and some time contributor to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Tao of Poker, will be playing. I saw his name as one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 38 players signed up. With 40% of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 prize money going to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 winner, it's going to be a decent pay out. I'm hoping to make cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 final table and improve upon my my best ever 3rd place money finish in WBT II when I had a monster chip lead and blew it all.

Hilton Sisters Challenge 7

I will be hosting a Hilton Sisters Challenge during cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 duration of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tournament.

Closing Thoughts

Marc Bulger is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 man I need to hook me up tonight. I'm down 24 points in my fantasy football league.

The guy I'm playing against is done for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 week. Here's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 added incentive. My league pays out $100 to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 team with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 most points every week. My opponent is currently winning with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 most points in Week 6... so in one huge game from Bulger... I could scoop cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 win and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bonus bucks! By cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way, my fantasy league is a fourteen teamer with $360 per entry. $2200 goes to first place.

Birthday Greetings

Yesterday was Derek's birthday. Go read his recently updated blog Poker in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Weeds and wish him birthday greetings. He posted his Top 5 things he's going to do in Vegas. I'll post mine in December.

Mini Blogger Tables

I played NL ring games on Party Poker with Iggy and Sean from Anistropy on Thursday and with Bad Blood early this morning. I also played an hour or so with Chris Halverson on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 $2-4 tables. He was shocked I sat down, but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re were two guys giving cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir money away... and you know sharks smell blood in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ocean miles and miles away.

By cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way, before I ever saw a pictue of Halverson, I swear that I had this image of William H. Macy plugging away on Party Poker. Then we both realized we were alot younger than we both thought.

A thought to ponder... who's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tallest poker blogger? I met Lord Geznikor, and he's a tall guy... by far cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tallest out of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bloggers I met. But my money is on HDouble or Sean from Anistropy.

By cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way, I'd love to see who'd win a 100 yard dash... Iggy, Al Cant Hang, or Boy Genius. Of course if cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re was a bottle of SoCo waiting for Al at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 finish line, he'd smoke cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m all. That would be an epic pay-per-view event.

This morning, I had both Al Cant Sleep and The Poker Geek sweat me in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 early morning $10 multi when I busted out 193rd out of 530. By cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way, I need to come up with a new nickname for The Poker Geek. Perhaps, Jar Jar? Just kidding... I'll come up with one by Vegas.

Phil Gordon on Dennis Miller's Varsity

Did anyone else catch Phil Gordon on The Dennis Miller Show tonight? The topic was gambling. One clown wanted to legalize online gambling in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 US and use cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 taxes levied towards homeland security.
Big Slick vs. 10-6s

I'm always cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 loser. Playing in a $1 NL multi-table tourney on Poker Stars (973 players), I was 50th in chips out of 142 remaining in Level 8. I raised preflop with AK and got two callers. The flop Ah-8c-2h. I bet two times cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot and a guy with a stack about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same size called with 10h-6h. You know what cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 river was? Kh. If you're gonna chase, at least chase cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 nut flush. I lost half my stack and slipped to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 back of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pack. Up until that point, I got Big Slick five times and Mrs. Slick six times each!

I battled back and made cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 prize money in my first Poker Stars multi. The key hand was winning cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 race with 99 vs. AQs. That was a close one. I also bad beated a guy with Mrs. Slick when he had pocket Hellmuths. I doubled up against cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 big stack with A-10 vs. his A3s. Then it got ugly. In Level 13, I was 19th out of 30 remaining players. With 88 in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 LB I moved all in. J10s on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 button called. He flopped a Jack and I was out in 25th place out of 973. Although I made cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 money in my first Poker Stars multi, I was gunning for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 final table.

I've only been playing on Poker Stars for a few days but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re are two things I like better than Party Poker:
1. The All In situations flip over your cards before cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hands begin.
2. Antes in tournaments
Did You Know?

The Yankees nicknamed cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir teammate Mariano Rivera... The Hammer of God!

Good God, Grubby!

The Poker Grub has an honest post about his SNG wrap up, Joe Versus cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Volcano, and his life on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 edge of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 gambler's abyss. Perhaps I should move to Vegas and watch over Grubby... to make sure he sticks to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker tables and away from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table games and slots. Maybe we can get one of those dog collars rigged so everytime Grubby sits down at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 black jack tables, he gets a jolt of electricity to his necá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r regions.

Late last night after cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Yankees game, I placed first in a $10 Aussie Million single table sub-qualifier... winning a free roll into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 $70 Aussie Qualifier, also a single table tourney. I played in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 $70 qualifier this afternoon and battled my way to fourth place when my A4 shortstack lost to KQ. The only highlight this afternoon was placing third in a $30 SNG.

Iggy is hosting anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r poker blogger tournament on Poker Stars next Thursday night at 9pm EST. Buy in is $20. I funded my account and I'm already signed up. Have you? I will be offering a Hilton Sisters Bounty for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 duration of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tournament. However, if you crack my AA with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Sisters... you win nothing. Instead, I come to your house and kick your ass. He also posted a boisterous letter from Texas Dolly. I love Texans. They're as tough as New Yorkers.

The Poker Geek has a hilarious shit list. And I made it!

Lastly, Boy Genius and Al Cant Hang are doing something weird. Go see for yourself.

Monday Night Blogger Mayhem
The Players:
Seat 1: Otis
Seat 2: Daddy from Snail Trax
Seat 4: Bad Blood
Seat 5: Pauly, M.D.
Seat 7: Maudie
Seat 8: Carter
If you build it, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y will come. I sat down at a random $25 NL ring table on Party Poker. Within five minutes Carter joined cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table. Cool. A fellow blogger. One less idiot I have to worry about. Then Bad Blood sat down and Daddy. A few minutes later Maudie and Otis joined cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table. Just like that.... a blogger convention. I still think it's cool that we're all over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 place geographically. Maudie's in Oklahoma, Carter in DC, Daddy in Indiana, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 South Carolina boys joining me in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Boogie Down, NY. But at heart, we're all degenerate gamblers.

This is my A.A. meeting. I'm Pauly and I'm a loose aggressive maniac.

I was doing well until Slick suited ran into cowboys... or Hellmuths as F Train has been calling cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m inhis attempt to corner cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 market in new poker vernacular. Slowly, I started getting crappy hands and wasn't hitting flops with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 decent run of small pairs finding my way. Then I made a stupid move. Moving all in with AJ in LP. I never put cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 guy UTG on KK. Obviously, if I did, I would have folded. I figured coin flip... 8s or 9s vs my overcards. Nope. He had Hellmuths and I was busted. Rebuy. Again. It's so easy to reload on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se $25 NL tables. I don't even think about digging in three or four times to rebuy... since cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tables are so fishy it's not uncommon to see someone push 10-7s all in against your pocket aces.

I had to take a dump and I let Derek play a few orbits for me. He usually misses out on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 blogger tables, so it was his first chance at experiencing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 action he reads about.

At this point, Daddy had qualified for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 $300 Aussie Satellite later in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 night. He won a qualifier SNG. I got some writing done and logged back in to watch him come from behind with a short stack. He battled his way to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 front until his Hellmuths ran into AA. Ouch. It was ugly. I felt so bad for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 guy. He was playing great holding on to his chips all night and winning his all in situations. Wrong time to get KK. Anyway, he finished in 13th place with a great showing. Good job. We'll get cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m next time!

This afternoon, I was playing in a sub-qualifier SNG for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Aussie satellite. With 55 in LP, I flopped quads in a three way pot. At this point, when I don't see a straight flush or quads on Party Poker at my table... I start to suspect something's up.

I played on Poker Stars for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first time since I funded my account. I think I got cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 coolest picture in my image circle. Anyway, sat down at an NL SNG and finished in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 money... 3rd place. K8 lost to K9. Hate when that happens.

It's been a while since I updated my Party Poker tournament results. I hit a nice run at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 $30 SNGs and fared well in a few multi tables.

I finally wrote up a little bit about my jury duty service last week which included be called and dismissed on a murder case. Check out The Real Jury Duty Tales which I posted on my main blog. Here's a bit:
I picked a seat near cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 window and read 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 tabloid newspapers. I did not get to finish Wil's book cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 day before and started cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 final pages. I looked up and a smoking hot Puerto Rican girl sat down next to me. She resembled Jessica Alba with once exception... Jessica was in Hollyweird somewhere, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 look-a-like was sitting right next to me. I wanted to slowly peel her clocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365s off with my teeth.

"Did you get called yesterday?"

She rolled her eyes. "I fuckin' got called for a murder case!"

I love NYC women. The second word that rolled off of her pouty lips was a derivative of "fuck". Hot damn!
Enjoy. See ya at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tables.

No Dingos, Kangaroos, or Shelias... 35th Place out of 84

I friggin blew it once again. I was running good cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last few days. I bullied, bluffed, and outflopped my way to two final tables in a 70 and 160 player multis on Party Poker. I was finally healthy for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first time in almost 10 days. I had a gameplan. I had railbirds. A lot of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m. Several bloggers and readers turned out to cheer me on. I bored cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m to death for seventy-five minutes folding crap hand after crap hand. I wanted to unleash LAG maniac Pauly. Couldn't do that when I was seeing 10-3 and 9-6 hand after hand.

It got to a point where I was shortstacked after playing two hands 99 and AQ ( I stole pots with semi bluffs with KJo and KT) and winning just three small pots. I was near desperation... going to push with any ace, king, or suited cards when I was 36th out of 42 players. I had fallen so far behind in chips at a loose table with several monster stacks that I knew I had a shot to triple up with any marginal hand, cause I'd get three or four callers... but having to be all in at a table with big stacks would not put me in favorable position. I should have sat back and waited a little longer for a hand. Alas, poker is a game about decisions and I made a crucial one that cost me a trip to Australia.

Level 4: K2 in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 BB with T710. Avg stack at that point was over T2000. I limped in. The flop: Q46. Checks all around in a three way pot with a T7000 stack and a T3000 stack. Anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r Q falls. Two diamonds and two clubs on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 board. Checks all around. The river: 6s. With T125 in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot, I'm looking at two pairs with a King kicker. I didn't put eicá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r guy on an ace, nor a full boat. Missed flush draws? The button bet T50. I moved all in and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 third player folded. He called with A3o. Ouch.

My notes had him labeled as a guy who'd play any two suited cards, even calling substantial raises preflop with 97s, J7s, 87s, 82s, 46s... with that information I was itching to move all in against cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 guy. Bad move. I hate losing and getting knocked out of a tournament when I made a poor decision. I'd racá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r get bad beated out of a tourney... because that means I had cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best hand when I got my money all in. Nothing you can do about bad beats. But poor decisions sit with you and fester. What's more frustrating? Getting no cards? Or getting no cards and making a bonehead move with no cards?

Last time I played in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 $600 satellite... I was gun shy. I folded AK twice. I would have killed for AJ in this tourney! Or any Ax suited! It was one of those nights. No playable cards in late position. Marginal cards would have been monsters for me... couldn't even catch a break. I wish I could have a better write up, but when you only play a few hands... cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re's nothing much to say ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rwise. Except... thanks for everyone who stopped by! You guys and gals rock.

Back to square one.

And in case you were wondering why I was playing so tight... here's every hand I was dealt... all 69 of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m. How many of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se would you have played?

Aussie Million Satellite

I'm playing at Party Poker tonight at 11:15pm EST in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 $300 Aussie Million Satellite. The winner(s) will get a seat and an all expenses paid trip to Melbourne, Australia to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Crown Casino.

I played too tenative last time (in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 $600 Aussie Satellite B) and tonight I hope to be hyper aggressive. I made two final tables in multis cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last couple of days (1/160 and 7/70) and I feel confident about my game.

Late Night Blogger Hijinks

There was anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r blogger convention on Party Poker. I sat down with Studio Glyphic and Bad Blood at a NL ring table. Soon after, a few more bloggers joined and we had Halverson and Derek on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rail. Of course, a faithful reader... Hank987 stopped in!

I dropped a few bucks early when A-10 lost to KQ. I also lost a big pot to Bad Blood's KK with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 friggin Hilton Sisters. Can't lay those bitches down sometimes. After four hours of play, I rallied back to break even! By cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 time I left, Bad Blood quadrupled his buy in. Here's some witty chat:

One Victory Away from Australia
"Follow Nature and place perfect principle in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 forefront. If we follow it, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re will be fortune, and if we disobey it, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re will be misfortune." - Wang Pi
I've played zero poker aside from two SNGs in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 previous seven days. I was busy with jury duty earlier in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 week and I fell wicked sick last weekend. I wasn't sharp at all, so I thought. I wanted to ease back into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 action. I decided to play a $10 multi table Aussie Million Qualifier on Party Poker. 160 players signed up and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 top 4 places paid out seats in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 $300 Satellite on Sunday night. The winners of that event go to Melbourne, Australia in January for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Australian Poker Championships. My mindset was to fire up Party Poker and read poker blogs. I figured I'd get knocked out in an hour, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n I'd write for a few hours and crash. That didn't happen.

Level 1: I doubled up cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 super short stack at my table when I had 88 on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 button and he moved all in. He was playing terrible hands cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first ten minutes. I put him on King high. Nope. He had JJ. I flopped and 8, but he flopped his set! Oh well. T625 left while reading Lord Geznikor's blog. 135 players remained.

Level 3: Phil from Studio Glyphic sent me an IM and we started chatting. He was playing PL on Empire and when he was done, he installed Party Poker to watch me play and cheer from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rail. He brought me good luck. With one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 short stacks at my table, I moved all in in late position with AQs. The little blind had Big Slick and quickly called. I won my first of several hands where I was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 clear underdog. That was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first bad beat I'd issue for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 evening when I flopped a Q. T1278 and 92 players left, I was reading cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 random confessions of a NYC escort... Alexa's blog, one of my daily reads.

Level 4: No action for Big Slick. I won cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 blinds and got my only table change... to table #1, where I was 7th at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table in chips. At cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 end of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first break, I had T1553. The average stack 2400 and 67 players remained.

Level 5-6: I limped in UTG with AQ. cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 flop: Q-10-6. I bet cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 guy on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 button raised and doubled my bet. I moved all in and he called with K6s! My top pair held up and I doubled up against cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 former table chip leader. I won small pots with 99, A-10s and AQ. I won a big one with Q3s in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 big blind. I flopped top pair with a flush draw and won cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 turn with a big bet. I had T6071, about 8th in chips with 40 players left. I stopped reading blogs and hunkered down.

Level 8: I played just one hand... 66. I folded everything else. I was getting junk hands after junk hands. I was chipped down to T5521 by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 second break. I slipped to 12th out of 22.

Level 9: Shorthanded I limped in MP with KJo. I hadn't played a hand in a while over a half hour. The flop: AJ8. I fired out at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pot right away. No callers and I added to my stack, which grew to over T7200. I found AJ in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 LB. The button had almost 25K in chips. He busted six or seven guys. He always raised on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 button, but that time he pushed his monster stack all in. I thought for a second and folded. I don't like AJ in NL and calling an all in bet with AJ is usually a sketchy move. I stole cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 blinds with 77 on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 button and finished cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 level with T7461. I was 7th out of 16. Two tables left. Phil was still watching. I was getting sleepy.

Level 10: After a Snapple iced tea and some coffee cake I felt a little energized. I raised in LP with 10-10. The BB had AK and pushed his stack all in. I quickly called and it was a classic showdown. Pocket 10s vs. Big Slick. You have to win your share of coin flips with AK and against AK. He flopped a K. I caught running cards to hit a straight on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 river! What a hand. I was up to T14242 and moved into 4th place overall. A few hands later, I lost a heads up pot to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 short stack. He had A2s and I had AQ. Of course he hit his flush and my stack remained at over 10K. The table dropped from seven to six players and I caught a flurry of good hands. 77, AAA, AK... all of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m held up. At cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 end of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 level I had T13126. I was 5th in chips.

Level 11: I made cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 final table. I got no action with AA and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Hilton Sisters. The table got tight all of a sudden, as I expected. I had T12726, 5th out of 10.

Level 12: I raised a pot with AQ and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 short stack moved all in with 77.
