We played again this Saturday night. Saturday night in Mooresville, NC is like being nowhere at all... Oopps. I reverted back to that John Denver song for just a second (See the post from 2/17). Actually, it was quite fun except for the fact that I didn't get to play cards much. I did get off to a good start in the first orbit and probably had twice the chips as I started with. Then I got to look at a lot of crappy starting hands and I got into a fair number of limped pots. Considering that I had BG and Falstaff on my immediate left, seeing any limped pots is a minor miracle.
Pretty much all of the hands from there on went south pretty quickly, so I sit and sit and wait for the tide to turn. I did donk off some chips to Twitch when I should have known that my two pair were beat. I know how he plays well enough that I could have avoided it, but frustration overtook me and I called him down. I later got KK, bet, got two callers and saw an ace flop. T bet and I'm gone. Kings cracked! I also had Nate dead to rights when he went all in with K2 to my KJ when a K hit on the flop. The 2 hits on the river and I get more chips (from the bank).
It wasn't all bad. I made a big comeback late in the Omaha hour (literally 2 hands before I had to leave) to finish the night up by 12 points. I'd have to say the patience was the only thing that kept me around that night.
- Either BG really had to go bad or his nose opened up again.
- Make a double batch (hair color)
- It's hard to tilt listening to Perry Como (yea, that was me)
- If T were going to get embarrassed, she would have left years ago.
- Rosalita (Come Out Tonight) (Springsteen)
Poker this week will be on Friday and I will just be returning home from Philly, so no poker for me this week. I'll miss the gang, but I could use a break.
One last note, I've been invited to become a contributor on a real web site - LasVegasVegas.com. I have no idea what form my posts will take and they will probably be few and far between. I'm honored and excited to be a part of the LVV team.
