Wish Me Luck!!

Wednesday, May 31st, 2006

At 3PM today my whole company goes outside to the parking lot across the street for a little ceremony. We had this morale-building program where if you did something above-and-beyond you got a little pennant to put on your desk. I’m sure your company has dome some similar. What’s a bit different is that one…

I Get Some Satisfaction

Tuesday, May 30th, 2006

After my whining to start off yesterday I did go outside and lay in my hammock. For about five minutes, as it was about 135 degrees and the sun bore down as if God was holding a magnifying glass above me. I stopped over my parents’ house, made myself a nice little lunch, and not…

A Post in Which I Rant a Bit

Monday, May 29th, 2006

I just got knocked out on the first hand of a SNG. After one limper I raise with KJ, the limper calls. Flop comes queen high, I make my continuation bet, he calls. The turn gives me an open-ended straight flush draw. I make a big bet, he calls. The river is a brick, I…

Beware the Limper

Sunday, May 21st, 2006

I watched most of Game 7 of the Spurs-Mavs series, but when Ginobili hit that three with 32 seconds to go I figured that was that and surrendered to dreamland. So I missed Nowitzki heroics and OT. I did wake up at 2AM with my foot throbbing with pain–yes, I’m not quite done with my…

The Answers

Friday, May 19th, 2006

Tripjax asked bloggers to answer a few questions, and since I don’t wanna be left out I’ll give it my best shot. 1. What is the biggest mistake people make at a NL table? I’m gonna answer from my own experience at low-limit NL games. People don’t know how much to bet. They either don’t…

I Cracked the Top Twenty!

Thursday, May 18th, 2006

Reading Bill’s blog this A.M. I learn that there’s a site called Top Gambling Blogs that lists the top, uh, gambling blogs. So of course I race over there to see if I’m listed because if I’m not I’m just gonna DIE! And I am! Whee! I’m number 19. Something else to put on my…

You Gotta Laugh, ‘Cause It Hurts Too Much to Cry

Wednesday, May 17th, 2006

I have a problem with my foot. Plantar fascitis, or something like that. I don’t know and I don’t care to learn how to spell it. I dinged my Achilles a few weeks ago, tweaked it again, and then one day at work it really started to hurt. Got worse, got worse, until Saturday I…

Arsenal vs. Barcelona; or, At Least I Have Pants On

Wednesday, May 17th, 2006

I’m home, I’m fed, I’m ready to live-blog the Champions League Final between Arsenal and Barcelona. I think I’ll also play in some cheapy multi-table SNG so I have something to write about in case the game is especially dire. Which I don’t think it’ll be. Just had some fun. Realtor calls last night, wants…

Now That’s What I Call Penis Envy

Tuesday, May 16th, 2006

Though I don’t have all the facts, Bobby Bracelet has been forced to pull down his blog by nefarious forces. I think each of us has posted something on our blogs that we might not want certain people with jurisdiction over our lives to read, and BB has had some rather juicy episodes, has he…
