Heads Up with the Waffler

Miami Heat 2006 NBA Champions!

Speaking of basketball the NY Knicks fire Larry Brown and hire Isaiah Thomas as Head Coach. BBBAAAAAAAA HHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. Isaiah ruins every thing he touches sort of the anti-Midas. CBA-ruined, Indiana Pacers ruined then brought back by Bird, NY Knicks ruining something that Scott Layden had already sent reeling but when you thought it was bad it could only get worst. The Knicks have problems, particularly with the cap that will take 10 years to maybe straighten out.

Sorry but I hate NY sports teams and NY sports fans. Everything there is the greatest. Now they will all argue but they are a bunch of whinny front runners. Does anybody remember when the Yankees sucked in the 80s and they only had 18-20K fans every night? I do. It was the during one of those once every 15 year periods when the Mets actually had a good team, ('69-'86-'01) and suddenly everyone had Mets caps. It will be the same this year once the Yankees fade and again everyone will be a Met fan. Fireman Ed and the Jets? The worst degenerates alive. J-E-T-S Suck, Suck, Suck! I hate NY.

I hope everyone can stop by and wish Carmen a Happy Birthday. Alright I'll tell you, she's 33 today although you could never guess my looking. Happy Birthday baby.

I decided to take a day off from live Poker today even though I only clocked seven hours during the last three nights. I'll make up for it though by playing long sessions Friday and Saturday at the MGM and Sunday at the Red Rock.

I did manage to take some time and play in the WWDN not. After missing the last three blogger events it was nice to actually play in one. I missed all the smack talk and since blogger events are my only MTT action I don't like to go to long without playing.

Congrats to Waffles for taking it down. Love him or hate him he's definitely got game. BTW I did manage to come in second by playing extremely aggressive during the final table. Waffles had too big a lead when we made it heads up and he used his big stack advantageously. Next time Waffles, I'm gonna get you. The top six finishers are all listed to the right, in the top third no less. Only three got paid but it was nice going to the final six with everyone being from our crew. Surf got 3rd, JJ was the bubble boy in 4th, Iak took 5th, and Kat took down 6th.

I got my books today for my summer school classes and I've already started in on them even before I got the syllabus. No it's not what you're thinking. The books are the Psychology of Poker by Alan Schoonmaker, and No Limit Theory & Practice by Sklansky and Miller. I hope to get Double A's in these classes as I try an advance my game in the hopes of moving up levels and making more money.

I'm not that big a fan of online poker but I hope everyone is sending those letters to their Congressman and Senators. Yes, it's a long-shot that Big Brother can find a way to stop the action but stranger things have happened. If a supposed blue state like Washington can ban online poker, and poker blogs for that matter, anything is possible. I've sent all my letters and follow-up letters from replies but if they really somehow do prevent online play, which is blogger only events for me anymore, I have about 40 poker rooms within a half-hour drive so I'm solid. Don't be lazy about this it's your life at stake.

It was 108 here in Vegas today and its suppose to get to 113 on Saturday. No BS it really doesn't seem that hot. Yes it's hot but it's not Florida hot and it's not Africa hot. Without the humidity it is actually somewhat tolerable. Of course, unless neccessary, I only go out at night at that's to an air-conditioned casino so it's not like I'm a roofer or on the asphalt crews paving roads.

Have I told you lately how I wake up every single day with a smile on my face. If you don't please do something about it. Life is too good and if yours is not change it immediately.

Yeah D the Crew reprahsented last night, no doubt about it.

As for DADI, Fuel55 and BoneDaddy have signed on to take Jordan's money, so I'll start to forgive Chris now.

First time out in a week and you looked ready to take that whole thing down, D. Ahhhh Waffles....what can we say?

Ick Just say "Ouch Sir, May I have another".. because I bring a world of pain.

Nice playing with you last night Don. Excellent finish.

I went to Vegas around this time last year and I thought the same thing. It just didn't feel that hot. Of course, you always need to keep drinking water because you don't sweat out there since the heat makes it evaporate upon leaving your body.

I'd love to move out there. It's a long-term goal of mine. My wife wants us to raise our son outside of Vegas, but she's up for moving later on, and I'll just be entering my 40's when that happens.

Until then I am perfectly content to crank out 300 hands per hour playing online and getting 40% of my rake returned to me.

Yankees Suck.

Nice job in the Not last night. Keep final tabling and cashing and you'll lose your "cash game" player status.

New Yorker here, chiming in to say that the Yankees SUCK!!! The Mets suck too btw. The sports fans in this town are a joke, Don hit it right on the head. In 1986 you literally could not find a Yankees fan no matter how hard you looked. This was a Mets town, everyone loved the Mets and always had, and the Yankees were just a sideshow. Now since 1996 the city has just been full of people who have "always" loved the Mets and hated the Yankees. New York sports fan are a joke. For much more real, die-hard type of fans, try Boston, or if you really want to go hardcore, how about them Philadelphia fans. Nobody like them anywhere in the world.

Don, congrats on 2nd place in the Not last night. Looking forward to meeting up with you guys in a couple weeks -- two weeks from today in fact!

I hate New York teams! Especially the Yankee-my-wankees!

Thanx for the words of encouragement with the whole j-o-b thing. Starting to get some's hoping things settle down quickly. And then it's on to Vegas baby! I've done my time in the desert, and I've been to Miami in the summer (South Beach rocks!), and that humidity factor is incredible! Besides, who cares what the temp is outside, when you're locked inside of an airconditioned casino with a cold drink, a rack of chips, and a couple racks of fake boobs bringing you more drinks!

Now, I will wear my NY Yankee cap prouder than ever!!! :-)

You musta' hated seeing that on my head in Vegas, but I must say I never knew it. Apperantly, you showed excessive restraint. A trait of a good card player.

Coming from AZ, I didn't get the statement "Its a dry heat." until I moved to TX. Now it makes a lot of sense, doesn't it?
