take the world in a love embrace
in this post i'll ruminate on:

* a little live action $6/$6 NLHE

* High Stakes Poker, Season II

* a Goldfish left a Lincoln Log in my sock drawer!

* Music in the Time of Cholera

all that after the jump!

and tell me what I look like when I stumble
last night i put on a clinic; sorry that most of you missed. you can hit my previous post to see my WSOP wanna-be skills (sans Oakley sunglasses, backward Bellagio baseball hat, iPod with Bose headphones, Tommy Bahama shirt, cigar, etc ad nauseam, ad infinitum) repleat with my patented All-in, Consequences & Thought Be All Damned (ACTBAD)© move. i felt like Hellmuth on High Stakes Poker, with Gracie as Greenstein. ugh.

to make matters worse, i then went and played in Full Tilt's $17K Guarantee. with an ACTBAD© move out of my system, i settled in for a long tourney, since 950 signed up (i would imagine a result of the perfect TV storm of the final in the NCAA tourney coupled with MLB's opening games.) like Richard Pryor says, "and deep too." right before the break, already into the antes, i am sitting with an M of about 18. a bigger stack had just moved to our table and in his first played hand he came for a raise and then laid down to another big stack's re-raise (a player with whom i had been battling with for an hour or so.) so when i get AQs in MP i pop it up roughly 4xBB, plus or minus some ante change. the new big stack reraises and what do i do? ACTBAD©. hello wired kings, goodbye tournament! 141st (top 15%, whoop-de-fucking-do.)


jump for it....

you see, after all is said and done, the only thing you can be really sure of, the only thing you can really count on in this world, is that you just never fucking know.
wow - a fast lesson in how to go out first; would help if i considered the made straight as well as a flush draw. the all-in move in a deep stack tourney is a roooooookie mistake on my part - for all to see below! ouch that was sad....

see what watching both MLB and High Stakes Poker while playing gets you?

ok, my best wishes to Gracie - use my chips wisely!
