Not much to update on today, poker wise spent most of last night playing, since the fiancé works late. Back onto Interops/Party, the .5/1 games were getting slow, I lost $15 of my first $25 buy in before deciding to play a Sit N Go (i know, they suck, but I play them when i get tired of the ring games)..
second hand had A5 going all in against AQ, 5 on the flop is when they went in... A on the turn and first player out, good thing i wasn't in that hand...
Preflop: Stinky is Button with Ac, 8c.
UTG calls t15, UTG+1 folds, MP1 calls t15, MP2 folds, MP3 folds, CO folds, Stinky calls t15, SB completes, BB checks.
Flop: (t75) 5h, Ad, Js (5 players)
SB checks, BB checks, UTG bets t85, MP1 folds, Stinky calls t85, SB folds, BB folds.
Turn: (t245) 5s (2 players)
UTG bets t125, Stinky calls t125.
River: (t495) Ah (2 players)
UTG bets t545 (All-In), Stinky calls t535 (All-In).
Final Pot: t1575
Main Pot: t1565 (t1565), between UTG and Stinky. > Pot won by Stinky (t1565).
Pot 2: t10 (t10), overbet by UTG.
Results in white below:
UTG shows Jh 3d (two pair, aces and jacks).
Stinky shows Ac 8c (full house, aces full of fives).
Outcome: Stinky wins t1565. UTG wins t10.
unbelievable... then this hand came up three hands later:
Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t15 (8 handed)

Results in white below:
Stinky shows As Kc (two pair, aces and queens).
SB shows Ad Td (two pair, aces and queens).
Outcome: Stinky wins t1630.
At that point I basically folded my way into the money, got heads up against a pretty decent player, but ended up winning, nice boost to my bankroll...I then squeaked out a small win in the .5/1 tables before I went to bed...
I might end up going to foxwoods again this weekend, provided they are running the new mini-NL game as promised, a call beforehand determines the trip... if not, I blame it on Bush
From the "Reasons why religion and computers shouldn't mix, here is a story about spyware/malware, where the main 'victim' places her pc under a statue of the virgin mary, rather than, say, i dunno, FIX IT! people like her are the reason why IT people will always be needed, and why I don't answer phone calls from family anymore... later on she gets a grandson to fix it, he says "She was all upset and crying; she's a religious woman. She shouldn't have to deal with this garbage. If I find the people who did this to her I will make them suffer." OK, so the only garbage she has to put up with is priests porking altar boy, because that's perfectly allright... oh, by the way, the earth is round lady...
By the way, before you email me how to fix this (i might actually help strangers, no family though) the variant talked about is CoolWebSearch, or CWS... a healthy dose of spybot and adaware (for some reason you have to use both) they will do much better then praying to young-boy-porking gods, both are available as free downloads (see download.com).
I blame it solely on the Bush administration, using it as an excuse to crack
down on 'indecency' and the 'war on terrorism' I wouldn't be suprised if Cheney
was the author of it, if I could be convinced he knew how to use a computer...
Speaking of bush, A tooth study takes a bite out of the idea that modern humans are related to Neanderthals, of course Neanderthals never existed, because according to Bush's religion the earth is only 10 thousand years old.
I love my fiancé, but she grew up going to a Catholic school. She's not religious now (i don't know of anyone who could be after being raised that way)
but she still has some of their twisted ideas in her head. Take, for existence, her insistence that dinosaurs never existed. Not that they were extinct, or for
any other rational reason I've been able to get out of her...she just doesn't believe they ever existed. All the discovery shows are made up... I enjoy
mentioning this around my friends when she's there..the first question is always
"what about the bones/fossils?" and her reply... "well, they
could be from anything" no matter of common sense will get through to
her... same thing with theories of evolution, not all of them, just stuff like
birds evolving from dinosaurs, or early mammals evolving into humans (she points at squirrels and says "there's your cousin" I point at the crack-whore at the side of the street, say "look, there's your...." then think better... she just cant even see how dog breeds are related...that, if you take two different purebred dogs, breed them with enough with different types of dogs, you'll end up (eventually) with wolves... anyways, I blame the lack of common sense on Bush...
Speaking of Neanderthals...wait, already used that one...
Saddam Bush and the real ruler of this country, heir-Cheney
Bush proved he can't take a crap without Cheney along for the ride when the only way he could speak (speak, never testify, avoid that whole lying under oath thing that brought down Clinton) was together. He stated he felt confident after the 'talk' Probably because no record was allowed, no reporters, no proof they said 'anything', and since they were together, no chance for Bushy to slip up and let out the truth.
End of my political ranting...I blame bush for the cause of it...
Felicia has part three of her Vegas
WSOP tourney experience up...
Chicago Phil is off to vegas...once again w/out me...when will I ever get to
go back there... my last trip was before I started playing poker, and was
mostly free (thank you wagerworks.com) but ended up being almost ruined by the non-closing on our condo the day before the trip, thats a story for another
Chris Halverson, unlike me, actually includes some poker discussion in his latest post, discussing when to defend your small blind...
Over at The Cards Speak the rules of blackjack are applied to poker, like quite a few people, I wasted time playing blackjack before discovering poker... worth the read...
good luck at the tables...if not...I suggest you blame it on Bush...
Brodie (pic) at Lion

and the $25k even at Bellagio, like me this weekend his AK went down to AA
(although mine was a $60 satellite, his was a $25k tournament)
Felicia was in vegas for the
start of the WSOP, too bad I don't get vacations anymore...
